Many American Indians have legands of a great flood and they tell of when the mountains were raised and the earth went through upheavals and the outside parts of the earths crust were torn to pieces and one legand said that when the flood swept over all the face of the earth the gods feared for the life of the steeled-faced man and he was the leader or governor of all mankind and in Maya writings a MU is referred to as "the Great Ruler" or the great ruler exists no longer et cetera. The Indians said that their forefathers came across great waters to America by boats and they were very highly educated and one legand referred to their last king as being the blond white race man Quetzal who had light flaxen hair. Nimrod took the dragon as his personal emblem and many accounts of dragons are found among the Hanitic peoples including Ethiopians, Hitites, Chinese, Japanese and Ameican Indian.

The thing about Christianity is that it was spread primarily by missionaries and/or by word of mouth. Christianity taught good morals and values and that every human is loved by their Creator, something that the pagan world was lacking. The missionaries let the message of Christ do the work for them, they did not spread Christianity by the sword, or force people to stay in the faith by the sword.
You are very correct.
But we are talking about the evidence of Christ existence.

Why did God allow the Muslim Hoardes to capture and convert 2/3rds of the Christian Roman Empire?
Are devout Muslims damned or saved?
Because God had a sense of humor? He told both the Christians and the Moslems they were his chosen people just as he had done with the Jews and left them to fight endlessly over the same Holy Land in the Middle East?

I think Nimrod built pyramids and invented hero worship or ruler-worship and made himself to be worshiped as Marduk and the name wasn't revealed to the people but the letter N may have been the symbol. Nimrod may have set forth attributes under pseudonyms or various gods, ENKI was the one concerning the deep oceans, this god was also called APSU from which comes the name Poseidon and the Titan Atlas also derives from Nimrod =Marduk. BEL/BAAL was the name for worship of Marduk, Baal means "lord" or "master", the Greeks associated him with Hercules under the name Melkarth. The name "meri Baal"translates as "lord of the rebellion". The names Nabul and Bel were Nimrod/Marduk and later as name elements as in Nebuchadnezzar and Belsha zzar. It is recorded Nimrod took the dragon as his personal emblem and it may have been a feathered serpent.

The Emperor takes the final decision, no one decides for him.
Vatican city is a proof to date.
If the emperor Constantine made the final decision would not the Vatican have been in his new Roman capital Constantinople rather than in the discarded Rome? The Roman capital was Eastern Orthodox.

As often as you use that word, it's a shame that you don't seem to know what it means.

Neanderthals have been traced back from 350,000 to 500,000 years ago in Africa. Neanderthals left a trail of skeletons from Africa to Europe and Asia. There was found several skeletons of Neanderthals in Israel dated to 50,000 years ago and 100,000 years ago. The last ones apparently died of in the Spain area around 25,000 years ago.

All you have to do is google neanderthals, and an amazing amount of factual evidence is at your fingertips.
Africa? That seems unlikely to me. Did they not evolve into the cold climate hardy Neanderthal form after they migrated into Ice Age Eurasia?

That is about like claiming Eskimos started out in the tropics.

The writings of Bart Ehrman are also telling us that the listed authors of the 4 Gospels are not the true writers of them. The authors were NOT disciples and were NOT eyewitnesses to the events they wrote about.

Also, Tacitus and Pliny the younger do not PROVE the existence of Jesus as they didn't eyewitness events, they just wrote later accounts from hearsay.

Interesting thing about Dr. Ehrman is that he says Princeton Seminary school is who first taught him these facts.

Bart D. Ehrman (born 1955) is an American New Testament scholar, currently the James A. Gray Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. While Ehrman is a leading New Testament scholar, he has also achieved acclaim at the popular level, authoring four New York Times bestsellers. His best-known works at the popular level are Misquoting Jesus and Jesus, Interrupted. Ehrman's work focuses on New Testament textual criticism and early Christianity.

God allowed 2/3rds of the Christian Roman Empire to fall to the Muslims. Was God (a) on their side,(b) powerless to stop them (c) did not care that millions who followed in these countries would not learn the message of Jesus ? Take your pick.

While you are at it, do devout Muslims go to heaven?

Answer the questions, coward.

A bundle of knowledge indeed. Ofcourse they were Romans, but not only Romans in the empire but Greeks, Jews, Egyptians, Franks and other sets of people.

I know about it. I know Islam was spread largely by the sword. I also know that no sword power could stop God if God had wanted it stopped. God obviously supported the spread of Islam to overrun 2/3rds of the Christian lands, an prevent all those people and their offspring from becoming Christians.

Constantinople is situated in Rome, true or false?
