I bet you are. You can generate some static.

You know these things, eh?

So you know how everything can get connected to do things you want it to do, right? Just have to use the right materials and connections. Man can do such things.

Who put man together so he could figure out how to do such things?

You still aren't understanding what I was saying.

I take it as the author had no clue about Judaism. I take it as proof that it was written long after Jesus died and far from the middle-east.
It would be like someone writing about George Washington and have him fighting a battle at a kangaroo ranch.
Do you understand commerce?

The military forces and the society used leather a whole bunch. Armor, saddlery, gloves, shoes, and about everything else we use synthetics for now.

UPS charged outrageous shipping charges from Rome to Jerusalem, so there is a likelihood a lot of such things were procured on the local economy. Some locals probably took advantage of that to make some bucks.

That's what I thought, until I researched it, for example some of the books have up to four different authors. None of them were written by the disciple they were attributed to, and none of the disciples knew Jesus first hand. None of the words of Jesus were recorded until at least 30 years after he was dead. To top it off, mistranslations , outright insertions and editing has rendered it to having completely different meanings than intended. Some of the stories were just added because people didn't understand the message, or felt it was missing something.

The story of Jesus and the whore, where he said "He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.." Is a complete fabrication.

I often wonder what Edison would think about LED and fibre optics. I wonder what Tesla could do with satellite tech. You know that Tesla perfected wireless communication long before Marconi, yes? It's never a matter of what you know. It's a matter of what you care about.

What possible difference could that make? Your use of the word man is beginning to offend me.

You don't know this about prehistoric peoples so you don;t need to know it about me.

There is a neolithic structure and flint flakes and cores at the bottom the cliff where I left my "message".

They use the leather, the 'untouchable' class can eat the cows and process the hides. upper castes of Hindus can use leather as long as they don't harm or eat the cows themselves.

Bible Colege:

Bible colleges produce a large percentage of North American evangelical missionaries and serve as a primary training center for local evangelical church leadership.

Intense brainwashing to brainwash others into their minority Christian cult.

To call it "education" is a sick joke.

Prehistoric people were the same as modern people, except with less mental and physical defects.

The sky was man's TV set for a long time. It was what inspired him the most.

You have a funny attitude about that for an anthropoligist and historian.

The swineherd is not Jewish, but a gentile from Gerasenes which was Gentile territory (note the presence in the area of pigs—unclean animals to Jews) and an indication that the person who receives salvation (Lk 8:36) is a Gentile.

When I first got to my house in Connecticut I started charting the moonlight on my wall. It took me 4 years to get the complete cycle but I did it.

My wall is a mess but I know when to plant corn.

Soap is one product that can be made from swine.

And there's always the trading and bartering with other cultures.
