The Romans governed over the Hebrew people at that time which is historical fact so why would the Romans deny the history of its dealings with the Hebrews?!
The Romans had very good records. That is why we know that certain aspects of the Christmas story was bullshit. For example, though the Romans did have some censuses, they did not have one anywhere near the time of Jesus' birth. Nor did people have to return to the cities of their birth for these censuses.

So that is two strikes against the Luke version of the Christmas story. Third there is no evidence that Herod ordered the killing of young Jewish males ever in his reign.

So, the Bible is true because The Councils of Constantinople "took care" of a lot of THAT evidence. oka-ay then 0.o

It has to do with a person not having to be a child to think deceiving U by typing in a slightly different format and using another moniker!!...if I wanted to create a different profile to antagonize the posters that I'm in disagreement with, I would change the way I type also, so I could curse and use explicit language and no one would know...that's my point!!!...and it wouldn't have taken a seventh grader to figure that out in the context of my response to your post!!!

<quoted text>I argue creation to a point and the same, for me, goes for ToE! Some things about evolution I can agree with as I love science and follow the new discoveries and breakthroughs that it offers. And I also could agree with creation TO A POINT!! Now, the global flood may not have actually been "global" but there are other records outside of the Bible that speaks about a flood. It just as well may have felt like it was the entire world to the people who probably wasn't really aware of how big Earth really is. Ok, rising from the dead...hmmm!...um, I don't really know about that unless we could rationalize by saying maybe a person might have just been unconscious or in a coma and so happen to come "to" in front of witnesses that thought he/she was dead and proclaimed it as a miracle or something!!! Maybe!! Now, talking serpents...I don't want really wanna deal with what that could've been about for it will take us to another realm of thought which U are closed off to!! I can tell ya this...the Sumerians also recorded something similar!!
Anyone who claims that a flood within recorded human history "might not have actually been global" does >not< "love science." As for the rest, one might doubt there is much fondness for reality, either.

Nope. They didn't erase their tax records, their census records, their records of the execution of Jewish criminals.

And are you suggesting that they edited Egyptian records (which are excellent), too?

C'mon, Mac. Erasing the Semitic history is obviously a conspiracy by the ROMAN Catholics to discredit the Christians. They've been at it since at least 2,250 BC. Why else would the Romans have built their capital practically on top of the Vatican? And if the Egyptian records were so great, how come there's no record of the Illuminati headquarters at the Lighthouse of Alexandria? Huh? Huh?

The bible is not all truths as well as it is not all lies.
I agree. The Bible like many other ancient writings show that people then were experienced and wise in the way of people. As far as the sky was concerned there was a little ball of fire that crossed the sky and tiny points of light at night. Holes in heaven.

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.
What condescension! You are saying that its vile to take away a kid's belief in Santa.

Really, as a grown up do you believe its vile to accept the possibility that your death is final? Do you think people are too infantile to handle that????
If what keeps them going does not affect you then why do you try to trample on what they find strength in.
Nobody is trying to trample. But the truth is the truth. Grow up. As far as you know, the end of this wonderful life is the end for you. So use your life, savour it.

Maybe if we accept the truth we can understand why justice HERE matters, instead of leaving it to some imaginary Superman.

The burning of the library was a different conspiracy - same mission, different bunch.
I think the Colossus was probably dynamited (certainly not an earthquake) because if violated nudity taboos. Everybody knows God abhors nude people - or is it God hates fig leaves? I always get those confused.
