Remember, there are two sides to a coin.
From your premise, you too are defending your faith.
Accepting thing based on evidence requires no faith. There is a reason religion requires faith... but I doubt you'll ever admit to the reason.

So Spiderman really exists too, based on this logic. Evidence is required because that's what you get, a bunch of people believing Spiderman is a real person because he lives in a real place.
You mean because Spiderman lives in New York?

Marky also says that the Bible is true because it mentions King Herod, and King Herod was an actual person.
Another contributor--I forgot who he was--said that President Obama appeared in a Spiderman story, and President Obama is an actual person, so Spiderman comic books must also be true.
But that didn't convince Marky.
Marky's logic works only when it is convenient for Marky.

Here is a quote which is found in many Websites:
“In the nineteenth century an eminent scholar, Rabbi Wise, searched the records of Pilate’s court, still extant, for evidence of this trial. He found nothing.
The quote is from Deceptions and Myths of the Bible by Lloyd Graham, page 343. I can’t find anything about these records, or who Rabbi Wise was, or why these records were available to only one person.
At about 95 AD, Josephus recorded that Jesus and his brother James were executed.
In the Annals of Tacitus, written about 110 AD , a Roman historian, Pilate is mentioned only one time. This Roman historian contended that the “Christians” derived their name from “Christus,” who “was executed at the hands of Pontius Pilate in the reign of Tiberius.” It is from the Annals of Tacitus that we learn of Rome catching on fire during the reign of Nero.
A manuscript entitled The Acts of Pilate mentions the crucifixion of Jesus and says that Pilate later converted to Christianity. However, the manuscript is now believed to be a forgery written in the Fourth Century.
One Website says that crucifixions never took place until the Second Century. Notice that Josephus says that Jesus was executed, but not necessarily crucified. Tacitus speaks of the Christians in Rome being crucified.
Usually i let things slide.
But here i find too much hineininterpretierung.
Curious as to where you got that.
Pilate seems to have been not a weakling but a cruel man that had many people crucified.
Josepus was also a pharisee, one of those who believed in resurrection as defining characteristic of phariseans.
So they might have been portrayed as some enemy in the gospel but frankly they would have been the originators of the idea.
He nevertheless pleaded with Titus to have three friends taken of the cross. One survived.
The name of jesus can not even be found in old material, but the first attestations would have in this order: christ (first and foremost without) jesus (not in that spelling) so 'king saved'.
The socalled jesus and james you mention are indeed presumed interpolation by another hand. They fit the page wrongly and are of another handwriting.
But we do know a slave leader by the name crest.
So by extenstion any rebel rousers were called crests.
I have to be carefull here because we have only three mentions in total of crestoi and variant spelling.
And church history from the east and west do not line up, as you would have expected for the earliest history.
And none of the old reports have any mention of a bloke called jesus.
Which is a bit galling for the church. Even Eusebius (4th century) sent Jerome out to see if he could find anything of use in the levant.
Nothing is suppressed but we simply lack any sources.
The church-fathers however discussed a lot of ideas, usually coming from Alexandria. And dismised those and later had papers burned. So if some original gospel (john is already late theology) existed it might not have made their bench mark.
Only later we got this entire fad of drawing parallels with the socalled OT. The first earliest papers contained three gospels(not 4)and did not have the O.T.' included, and that was the case for centuries.

If scientists are recreating the big bang at LHC, wouldn't the particles be hydrogen since it is the first element produced after the big bang? Hydrogen proton attracting electrons from other sources act like the Higgs-field. Where does boson fit into the space in the universe if the universe consist of 75% hydrogen?
I read up your earier post on gematria this afternoon (for me...Charles I., is probaly they only person you have to explain datelines to, in terms of living in your future, in a land far away.)

But protium that is now rare and close to nn-existent on earth, could have only formed when the universe was cooling down again.
We have quarks and gluons to acount for that electrons and protons are made of. And the 500 forms of matter.
So 400,000 years later protium and then 25 % helium, which does however still ugest a very hot place, means a lot went on in the meantime. But we call it matter, because it is a buildingblock in our chemistry. The other kind would be more like forces as in having a close connection to quantum-forces.

If you go back to my original comment to MAAT I asked him "how is higgs-boson different from prime matter?"
Did that sound like I was making a claim that prime matter is a fact? Stop putting words in my mouth. I asked him a question because he wanted me to look up the higgs-boson. So I did and I stumbled upon the video.
It's not even MY video so why are you calling prime matter MY mystery matter? I wouldn't call quarks YOUR particles. You have no credit on the theory.
Nah. that's called shifting the problem in someone elses lap.
I had to look up prime matter.lol
Apart from trying to explain higgs-bosons field, in a pupolarized way that would not include the by Higgs hated allusion to god.
And to elucidate further.
Even if there is no higgs-boson hat CERN actuall measured was a 'field''ripple-wave' and 'grouping' effect.
So it might just be that it's composition exacerbates an allready present phenomena. Or a result instead of a cause. Or coinciding.
After all it was a mathematical theory to unite two different forces. Which required there to be such a phenomena as a 'field' that made particles change vector or in popular terms slow them down. Since in a flat universe everything would otherwise keep going straight on.
Those resultant particles were later called Z- and W- particles.

I was going to ask you about the alien code you're talking about. lol. Mine is more like the concept of gematria. When I came across an e-book about God's Quantum Code, I read it hoping to find some answers. But it's all bunch of formulas that no one understands. But the author mentioned the best description that I think best describes my code. Which in his own words is the The Quadric Duality [Super-Unification] Equation and describe it as a linear alphabet to the ascending and descending numerical description.
huh? upto linear we can wiki.
You could look up the augmented Lagrangian method that avoids infinity problems and altogether lagrange works better then serendipity, though some say the latter is understudied.
Here a bunch of formulas for cube heads:

lol. you won't find the code online, MAAT. There is no reason for anyone to know it anyways.
