Atheist Islamophobia... Again

Apr 9, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Religion Dispatched

Sparked by a Richard Dawkins tweet , in which he drew a parallel between Islamists and Nazis, Nathan Lean recently suggested on Salon.com that the most famous representatives of the new atheism "flirt with" Islamophobia [echoing Chris Stedman's prescient warning to fellow atheists on RD this past August]. As the article explains, Dawkins, Hitchens ... (more)

I would not call that "using bad language". Bullshit used as a metaphor for worthless lies. Besides, bullshit is not a rude word.

Um, no it wasn't. You were responding to someone who had a link specifically discussing the shroud and that shows it cannot be what you claim it to be. The majority of the scientific evidence puts it as a medieval relic.

Prove Christianity came from any other religion then the Jews. You are just parroting what you've been brainwashed into believing. You cannot prove Christianity came from any of these pagan religions.
Mithra has the following in common with the Jesus character:

Mithra was born on December 25th of the virgin Anahita.
The babe was wrapped in swaddling clothes, placed in a manger and attended by shepherds.
He was considered a great traveling teacher and master.
He had 12 companions or "disciples."
He performed miracles.
As the "great bull of the Sun," Mithra sacrificed himself for world peace.
He ascended to heaven.
Mithra was viewed as the Good Shepherd, the "Way, the Truth and the Light," the Redeemer, the Savior, the Messiah.
Mithra is omniscient, as he "hears all, sees all, knows all: none can deceive him."
He was identified with both the Lion and the Lamb.
His sacred day was Sunday, "the Lord's Day," hundreds of years before the appearance of Christ.
His religion had a eucharist or "Lord's Supper."
Mithra "sets his marks on the foreheads of his soldiers."
Mithraism emphasized baptism.

All of this over 1,500 years BC

One discredited carbon dating puts it as a medieval relic. Let see if you can agree on one thing. Do a little research and answer the following: Is the image the Shroud that of a human corpse or an artist's rendition? Yes or no; and support your answer with recent evidence from respected forensic scientists.

To what end? Nothing anyone supplies will satisfy you because you have no intention of admitting the falsity of your assertions no matter what evidence is supplied.

LOL! Yeah... it was "discredited" by those who have a vested interest in it being accepted as "real". What a putz!

Just as I thought, you just make stuff up and think you can sell it. You better try selling it to your kool aid buddies at the skeptic site.

Only words, you can't prove it.

God gave us the Shroud of Turin for you skeptics. Christians don't need it to prove God is in their lives.

And how was the carbon dating discredited? There has been a claim that the sample was taken from a medieval 'repair', but the original researchers deny that as a possibility.

Whether the image is from an artist (by far the most likely case) or a corpse (also possible; but a medieval, one if so) is irrelevant if the age is less than 1000 years.

Once again, without further samples being taken and analyzed, it is impossible to go further.
