The Bible is not a history or science book.

That you really, REALLY would like the Bible to be scientifically and historically correct does not matter to reality. The Bible HAS been found to be factually incorrect.

The bible is not all truths as well as it is not all lies. Many people get by in life by the faith they have in the bible and God and it is vile people like you and others on this thread that try to take that away from them. If what keeps them going does not affect you then why do you try to trample on what they find strength in.

See right there is what I am talking about. Many people hold the thought of God and the bible dear to them like a child holding Santa dear to them. If they want to believe that that is up to them, not up to you to try to destroy it. you may think your father was a great man but many people that know/knew him may think he was a total idiot. Even if you would not believe it, would you feel better if they told you or just let you go on thinking he was great?

Some of them definitely existed. Some of them definitely did not exist. It is not an all or nothing game.
And just FYI it was Nebuchadnezzar. We are fairly sure that he was real. He is also the center of the one of the worst failures of prophesy in the Bible. Tyre is still alive and healthy today.
I just knew I spelled it wrong, lol!...but anyway the only one from the examples I had given that is questionable is Noah, but only because of the flood epic. Everyone else for sure existed and written records outside of the Bible are available today to prove it...even though a lot of them had been destroyed, altered in substance, or names had been changed to suit the culture, i.e. the name of Jesus being changed to a more Roman sounding name instead of leaving his name in the Aramaic form as Yehushua or Yeshua. Now, somebody like Jonah (surviving in the stomach of a whale for a few days) would be one of those people who may not have existed...or maybe he did but I'm pretty sure he didn't survive in a whale without suffocation, being crushed by the pressure of the ocean as the whale would dive deep, or without being digested.

What makes you think that Moses or Abraham were real?

You do know that most anthropologists will quickly point out that there is no record of the Jews in Egypt. And they are very sure that an estimated 2 million people lost on a relatively small, no make that amazingly small, desert for 40 freaking years would leave some sort of evidence behind. None has been found to date.

Relax replaytime, if you haven't been judged you aren't doing it right.

Your father and grandfather were fcking idiots and worthless just like your momma unless you can show me scientific evidence that shows otherwise. I mean by your standards, unless science evidence can be presented to show different, then it is what it is.

We probably won't be. I offered an olive branch and you reacted like the moron that you are.

Sad little boy cannot even write the word "ass", how pathetic.

You know that I do not like dishonest people. That of course includes you, People can change. They can decide to become honest decent people. Sadly it does not look like you will ever change for the better.

I don't understand why you enjoy being a moron.

I would never be friends with a bigot, racist, swelled head idiot like you. Changing for the better is to not be around people like you so I will always get/be better by not being around people like yourself.

Guess what tard? I am none of those.

Now the fact that you are an idiot compared to most people here may make it feel like others have a swelled head. That is not the case.

And of course like any moron you are wrong. For you changing for the better would be to quit lying fora start. Being honest is the best thing you could do to improve yourself.

Of course it would make my life nicer if you decided not to be around people who were brighter, kinder, and more generous than you are.

So when are you going to leave?

I have never said I was leaving. I said I was not going to waste so much time in here. Unlike you I get out and enjoy life and the beauty it has to offer while you set here daily adding to the hate and evil in the world. But hey to each his own, Everyone should do what makes them happy but I see it as sad that you being here everyday and spreading hate is what makes you happy.

I'll accept that. But that also means you AGREE that the Bible is not a history or science book.

I do NOT "want to take that [their faith in the Bible and God] away from them".

I am only pointing out that there are some factual inaccuracies in the Bible -- a fact WHICH YOU AGREE WITH. If I am a "vile person" for understanding this concept, then I have you for company.

I may have to revisit that.
Antoninus was few years after my interest.

Beards were not so popular during the period I like (;-)

There is so much of the Roman period that it is hard to absorb it all. It (including the Eastern Empire) lasted over 2000 years and at itís height covered most of Europe, almost as much of the middle east and parts of north Africa

You can only look at so much.

The period I like happens (coincidentally) to include the time of the Jewish rebellion, the fourth philosophy terrorist group and their leader Judas of the Sicarii/Judas of Galilee and the roots of christianity.

Itís very interesting.

See, here's how it is - his pa has ZIP to do with science education in public schools. Science education has to do with science education in public schools. And the FACT is that religious fundamentalists who are too stupid to realise that The Flinstones ain't a science documentary are trying to get it taught in public schools. And they are ignoring scientific protocol and flagrantly violating the Constitution to do so. This is not a handful of atheists trying to destroy Christianity. This is a VAST amount of fundamentalist Christian conservatives trying to destroy education for everybody because they think Jesus will come back in their lifetime if they succeed. And this has been going on for DECADES.

On the other hand if you don't give a sh t about public school education and you just think it's mean that the mean old atheists here are being mean to the poor widdle defenseless good Christians who post here lying their azzes off, then just as it's not up to atheists to destroy their preciously held religious beliefs, it's also not up to them to destroy the opinions of atheists.

Ain't freedom of speech grand?
