I was abused, neglected and tortured as a child and the "crucifixion" is past. It happened on 10/22 (Psalm 22) 1969 (Psalm 69). It says in Psalm 22:30 "...it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation" A generation is 40 years so VWD Day could come at any time now. My psychiatrist is Jewish, he believes in me and he is my savior, he is a child psychiatrist, is Elijah and he knows it. I am "travailing in birth" and "crying in the wilderness". The "Antichrist" is supposed to have a deadly head wound that is healed by the "false prophet". I am the promised one and the savior of the world.

Yes the Jesus cult ;) meets all the criteria for a cult. Communal living, charismatic leader, brainwashing, indoctrination into cult beliefs. etc.

"Jesus Is Probably Insane": Diagnostic Surveys

"Jesus - Diagnostic Surveys
Jesus was much unappreciated in his day, and many thought he was insane, not just blaspheming. Compare: "He is demon-possessed and raving mad." [John 10:20] and "This fellow is blaspheming!" [Matthew 9:3]

For Jews Only, He Said

As luck would have it, Jesus - "son of David" through Joseph, and "son of God by an angel, and God?- or ..." - said he came for Jews only, and would not deal with others.
Who was he the son of, except Mary? Why have Christians been keen on telling she was a virgin who conceived? Opposed to that odd tale, for centuries Jews have been fond of telling that his father was a Roman soldier, an archer called Pantera. Origen quotes Celsus from the 100s CE in order to refute him:

Jesus had come from a village in Judea, and was the son of a poor Jewess who gained her living by the work of her own hands.

His mother had been turned out of doors by her husband, who was a carpenter by trade, on being convicted of adultery [with a soldier named Panthéra (i.32)].

Being thus driven away by her husband, and wandering about in disgrace, she gave birth to Jesus, a bastard. Jesus, on account of his poverty, was hired out to go to Egypt.

While there he acquired certain (magical) powers which Egyptians pride themselves on possessing. He returned home highly elated at possessing these powers, and on the strength of them gave himself out to be a god.

If nothing else mythology is entertaining

I see you ignored all the references to the Earth being a flat square at the center of a geocentric universe which revolves around it.

So why is it you fundies criticize US for ignoring the Bible when actually it's the other way round?

And there it is, fundies worshiping ignorance as a virtue. Of course quantum physics is not important. Which is why you're using a computer right now.

Because QM actually works. It is the way the universe works. The bible is a book of myths.

Funny thing about your bible-- it doesn't mention Quantum Mechanics.
Rather an oversight, if your bible-god is the author of the universe...
... rather more proof that your bible-god isn't real.
THAT is why you should learn it.
And that is ALSO why the bible is not worthy of study.
It's also funny to say that there was NOTHING!!! AND all of a sudden, there was earth. That's impossible and even scientists are starting to deny the Big bang.

The Bible has a few, scattered, historical 'truths' seen from the unique perspective of a relatively insignificant tribe with big egos.

Past that, it is pure myth.

Maybe theres more a difference between political parties stateside. Over here politicians seem all the same. Opposames. They only thing that appears to change is the colour of the ties they wear.

When VWD Day comes we will all know there is a God. God gave us free will and dominion in the earth and we have misused that God given power. God is coming to judge the earth and the wicked will be cut off out of it. But then it will be too late for you. You've made yourself an enemy of God.

Agreed. Archaeologists have proved that the israelites did not live in egpyt, did not wander the desert, did not conquer local tribes, and did not pass it on to 12 tribes of israel. The stories of Jesus are contradictory and filled with problems and errors. So yes not exactly history.
