Needing evidence. And a dislike of Pascal's wager.

The Bible is not a myth, its historically acurate.
All the nations mentioned were real civilizations.
It was written to warn us off the future.

When revelation 17,18 that the nations will turn against false religion and plunder its wealth

Then I look at ppl like you and the nations
Its clear that influence of religion has dried up and her destruction is closer than we think.

The bible is fact.

The Bible is a book of myths. Of course it refers to known civilizations and places in the area. So do Greek myths. How does the fact that the Hittites existed show that the deity of the Bible exists? As you know, it doesn't.

As for revelations, it is *always* a safe bet that people will reject your beliefs if there is no way to substantiate them. That isn't a prophesy; it is a blatantly obvious fact. So it is simply being rational and demanding the same level of proof from your myths that I would from those of the Greeks, Hindus, or Norse.

I'll also add that it is only accurate for a very small area of the world and a very limited time period. If you go back before about 1000 BC, or move away from the Levant and Mesopotamia, it is no longer accurate at all.

Actually it is correct, the Genesis account
describes how the earth was formed... earth was water, etc... moses was writter of Genesis and Exodus
Moses new how thebearth was formed before scientist came along

The Bible is not a science book its designed so that humans can survive.

The Bible prophecies include great earthquakes happening one after another .. in 1993 their were 18 great earthquakes .
This year we have had 56 and the year is not over.
The Bible also notes increased food shortages, increase of lawlessness, also false teachings that rise up and mislead many

All these things are happening today. Scientist do not have an answer for this

The crime rate has increased, despite the advances intechnology.

Obviously God knew what humans would be doing.

Its bitter sweet, the Bible says that the merchants and people's will sad because of all the money false religion has generated will be gone.

This will happen right the nations speak of peace and security,
God is going to put into the hearts of the nations to turn against false religion,

The nations are going think its their best national interest. 2 Thessolonians 5:2,3
Revelation 17,18

This event is going to shock people, only Gods true ppl Will still be serving him at this time.

God will be protecting his ppl, since the nations will unknowningly be going against him by try to stop his ppl

To be atheist, one must simply not be theist. We are all born without theism, and therefore are atheist.

To be a non-believer one must know what one is rejecting, the buy bull is what I rejected and hence became a non-believer by reading it's pages.

Of what size? There are *always* quakes of various sizes. Most are below the level of detectability except for sensitive instruments.
The Bible also notes increased food shortages, increase of lawlessness, also false teachings that rise up and mislead many

Because that is actually contrary to what we see: violent crime has been decreasing for decades now, food is much more common than it was *anywhere* in Biblical times. And the only 'false teachings' are those promoted by the religious.
The crime rate has increased, despite the advances intechnology.

Care to show the statistics for that? The FBI says differently.

Nice little set of myths you have there. But no evidence that they are even remotely correct.

Oh, as to your claim that the Bible is accurate about 'civilizations', so it must be true: The Iliad (Greek) talked about the battle of Troy and how their gods were involved. For many years, it was thought that Troy was fiction. But then it was actually discovered. Does that show that the Greek myths are true? of course not. Neither do occasional accuracies of your Bible show it is true.

Myth? no the bible is not a myth. The facts are clear especially when outlines our day. one of the prophecies of the bible is the fall of religion well falso religion , The bible describe it as a harlot "babylon the great" if know the of the ancient city of babylon it set on many waters, religion also sets on many waters.

revelations 17:15 And he says to me:“The waters that you saw, where the harlot is sitting, mean peoples and crowds and nations and tongues."
Revelation 18:3
"For because of the wine of the anger of her fornication all the nations have fallen [victim], and the kings of the earth committed fornication with her, and the traveling merchants of the earth became rich due to the power of her shameless luxury.”

Religion is always interwined with politics, and religion also has lots of money.

we know that we are living in the last days because God will expose the harlot during the last days,
before the 20 century religion remained untouched.Now it is being exposed more than ever.

The bible that God will put it to the hearts of the nations to destroy it. and it says no one will come to her defense.

Revelations 18 :22 And the sound of singers who accompany themselves on the harp and of musicians and of flutists and of trumpeters will never be heard in you again, and no craftsman of any trade will ever be found in you again,

23. and no sound of a millstone will ever be heard in you again
and no light of a lamp will ever shine in you again, and no voice of a bridegroom and of a bride will ever be heard in you again;

24. Yes, in her was found the blood of prophets and of holy ones and of all those who have been slaughtered on the earth.”

Because of religion many been killed and have died.

its funny because atheist predict religion going exstinct when Th bible actually pronounces its compplete end.

Sir the bible is fact,
The bible says before this happens the nations will gather and anounce peace and security 2 thessolians 3:2,3

I doubt anyone can agrue this prophecy. The bible says it will happen out of nowhere like a thief in the night

Really want to know, eh? I don't think so. People who really want to know what others think don't argue with the responses they get. The read, think, and ask probing followup questions. All you really seem to want is another opportunity to evangelize.

Pathetic.

Look at the evidence http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eqinth... the earthquakes

crime acyually has increased, even in areas that has never known to have crime

http://www.gallup.com/poll/123644/americans-p...

Food shortages has increased
http://www.adra.org/world-food-shortage.htm

The food that we in propsperous countries, Like america is hardly real food. most is the food is processed, Chemical compnays have to make chemicals to give it a smell because it does not have natuiral smell,

are crops are geneticallly modified hybrids, they cannot produce.

the reason for food shortages is the G.E are expensive and sense they cannot regrow them the poor natioons have to keep buying the seeds. Monsanto patents his seeds, so even if you have natural if any of the G.E food is grown on a farm you will have to royalties to him and they can sue you.

http://www.naturalnews.com/037262_GMO_Monsant...

Their is no myth.
read the books "Fast Food Nation" Food InC or King Corn

Their is a food shortage.
The food we eat, s technically not food, its not even natural.

The Gallup poll that spidersandsnakes cites only shows what Americans believe about the rise of crime. The actual statistics from the FBI and the BJS show a very different picture, i.e., a continuation of the steady drop in crime over the last two decades, during every year of which public opinion has shown a steady but unrealistic pessimism.

Seems someone's grasp on reality is even more tenuous than on the English language.

Pity, that.

Jesus told children sitting at his feet that some of them would never experience death because he was returning with the end of the world that soon.

Now unless you can find me these 2000 year old people walking around Jerusalem, Jesus was wrong.
