Tacitus -

""Consequently, to get rid of the report, Nero fastened the guilt and inflicted the most exquisite tortures on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in JudŠa, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome, where all things hideous and shameful from every part of the world find their centre and become popular. Accordingly, an arrest was first made of all who pleaded guilty; then, upon their information, an immense multitude was convicted, not so much of the crime of firing the city, as of hatred against mankind."

Note the descriptions --

"a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace"

"a most mischievous superstition"

"hatred against mankind"

Interesting that this is the shining example of a non-Christian reference to Christianity.

Helicopters fly under pretty much the same regs as airplanes.
And they actually have much less restrictive requirements concerning where they can land.
You don't see more helicopters because they are much more expensive and extremely maintenance intensive.
They're also harder to fly. Kind of like rubbing you tummy while patting your head.
It's also said that helicopters don't fly. They're just so ugly, the earth repels them.
I was comparing them to cars, not planes.

But that joke was pretty good.

<quoted text>You're less likely to get in an accident in a plane. However, I'd say it's probably a safe bet to state that you're more likely to live through a car crash than a plane crash.

More people die in automobile crashes than airplane crashes, yes. People also drive far more often than they fly.
Just to qualify that, you're safer in an airliner than in a car.

Light planes are about equivalent to motorcycles.

No, I think that's horrid. But I'm not the one who tries to use this as a reference for Christianity.

Inablility to refute proven data. Check.
Lane Christian dodge technique employed when thy know they are losing badly. Check.
Idiot thinks a real news source not some random apologetic opinion piece is not solid. Check.

All this from an idiot who thinks Catholics are not Christian but then says the Catholic Church is the largest Christian church. Check.

Yes half wit as usual I have factually dismantled you. Hey we all know you will fail miserably but for laughs, show us this historical proof for Jesus. Not people's opinion or them saying there is proof but actual historical proof. It will be fun to humiliate you even further half wit.

And go!

The James brother of Jesus box has been soundly proven as a hoax. By Christian scholars no less followed up and verified by Jewish scholars and secular scholars.

Even several Christian groups have denounced it as an attempt to manipulate the faithful.

At this point like the shroud of Turin only rubes believe it is accurate. Cough cough.

Tide, I haven't wrote anything like that since I did my GCSE's. I used to write lovey dovey poetry in Hindi, but then I gave up, I'll try and remember what I wrote and then translate it into English. I find it really hard to think like that, now.

I watched a film called source code, OMG, I'm confused. Have u seen it?

Catcher, don't worry, Tide will protect us both!:-)

Tide, it's all on u now!! Good luck!!!
