BS. All one has to do is look at their claim. An ad hoc exception under imagined circumstances where life somehow happened from non life absent intelligence. It is all speculation. Never observed. Based on anti supernatural agenda.No, it is not a secret society. The training is widely and publicly available. No oaths of secrecy are required to learn it. You simply have to do the background work.
And yes, to understand technical material requires training. In the case of abiogenesis, a strong training in biochemistry is clearly required, but also geology (to know about the conditions on the early earth), some astrophysics (to know the chemicals available), and a good deal of regular biology (to know the systems as they exist now and probably existed in the past). If you don't have that training, you cannot talk sensibly about the topic.
Vague statement. I know of errors in the New so do not assume Bible is correct in details. Assume Christ resurrected and take it from that point.Theology starts with the conclusion that the Bible is correct and that a deity exists.
In Christianity they agree on essentials and differ on details. If they do not agree on essentials then they are cults.Every different sect has a different theology.
Theology is not a matter of knowledge is your opinion and carries that much weight.That alone shows it isn't an area of knowledge, but is, instead, a matter of opinion and desire.
I have done that.Yes, read the Bible, please. But as you do so, put it into the historical and archaeological context.
What other texts? If they assume Christ did not resurrect then they are wrong. One does not need to study the counterfeit to know the real.Compare it to the other texts of that time and area.
Either are your arguments against resurrection of Christ. There is nothing unique. I have posted historical and archeology references and they are rejected for a host of reasons which are nothing more than excuses. Bottom line being atheists here do not want to accept the truth God exists and Christ resurrected. They will go to absurd extremes to explain it all absent intelligence. It all happened naturally. They are agenda driven and dogmatic.For that matter, compare it to other texts from other cultures. If you do so, you will realize it is the writings of a self-absorbed culture (most are) amidst greater cultures which it didn't understand and trying to match its superstition with the realities of the day. This is hardly unique.
