<quoted text>Some of those so called predictions did not come true or had strong indications that the writers of the Gospels wrote the verses so that the prophecies would come true. The most glaring example was that of the Virgin Birth. Also his birth in Bethlehem. And quite a few of the so called predictions were definitely of the Nostradamus sort that could be applied to multiple events, therefore they were not true predictions.
Than how do you explain Isaiah talking about events like the Jews return to Israel post ww2. Or the fall of Babylon. Or they sudden rise of Christianity in Rome. Or how the gospel writers we hundreds of miles apart writing the same things about one man. 66 books in one written by so many different people over so many hundreds of years all talking about the same God. Name another religious book written in that fashion.

So you don't doubt leprechauns either, there's more evidence for leprechauns than for your god.

You know if I were walking in the rain and found a pot of gold why not. I can tell you I wouldn't be asking where it came from or if it was a distant cousin to sand nope I would take my pot of gold and be happy.

You evos are so serious I've really had a good time talking to you today. I will say I see adaptation being a form of evolution. If God used a form of this to make the world we live in that's cool or if God said let it be and it was idk. I have to cook dinner for the kids soon so ill catch you guys later tonight.

The wind is scientifically verifiable.

I don't doubt the Flying Spaghetti Monster because even though I haven't seen Him I have seen His work.

I don't doubt the tooth fairy because even though I haven't seen her I have seen her work.

Or the sudden fall of Rome while under Christian rule?

Have a good evening Bat. You certainly are a breath of fresh air from the militant (evidence be danged) creationists.

Alchemy was the precursor of chemistry and metallurgy. Minus the weird stuff, it gave us a bumbling start on some pretty good science.

He did not predict any of those things. At best you can find a Nostradamus type prediction that supposedly only makes sense after the fact, and can be interpreted to cover several events. Those are not predictions.

The gospel writers copied from each other to a wide extent. You can find verses from some of the gospels directly lifted from others.

And I am not saying that Jesus did not exist. I am saying that his resurrection and godhood is a myth.

Don't need to explain what never happened. Modern Christian projections on the Rorschach test that is called Isaiah not withstanding.

Gospel writers had access to to the oral tradition and probably the Q document. And when you read the synoptic gospels side by side (instead of one after another) they are not all that,... um... synoptic.

Most famous religious books have their own uniqueness. That the Christian bible has one unique quality does not make it unique.

You do not know the Bible is the word of God. You choose to believe it is but you cannot choose for others.

Holding hell over the head of anyone not willing to see your point of view is a bit harsh. Jesus didn't preach much about hell he taught love faith and seeking the lost. Oh and let us not other FORGIVENESS for everyone. People know hell for the most part teach love an forgiveness most people don't understand that.

Oh which came first the chicken or the egg? It depends on what you believe right? If you believe evolution is right than the egg came first. However a creationist believes the chicken did. Yet even still my McNuggets Taste the same hmmmm God or a universe fart so it comes down to who's the better cook!

Since there is no hard dividing line between chicken and not chicken in evolution this is a rather nonsensical question.

It was a joke. Very good this isn't a drop dead holding your side joke but a slight chuckle would be ok.
