“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

That story is absurd and a forgery.
What did he write on the sand? Any clue? He was just fiddling with a stick.
It says He wrote in the sand. Legend has it, He was writing in the sand the sins of those who wanted to stone the woman.

Anything that proves you are full of shit is "absurd and a forgery".
You are an imbecile.

What archaeologist has unearthed a sample of Jesus-write in the sand? Just because the bible says so isnt convincing evidence.
Just because someone can read doesnt mean they can write.
As far as I am aware there isnt even any hard evidence that Jesus could read. Much of Judaism at that time was oral anyhow.
You Frijoles rival bmz as a bullshiter.
Jesus was a rabbi.
There is no such thing as an illiterate rabbi.

I guess you never knew that the Torah itself was originally conveyed orally. Thats why certain sections rhyme or otherwise have poetic rhythm - it was a mnemomic device.

Of course you would never notice that being that you are ILLITERATE in Hebrew.

That's your opinion, which is no better than mine. It really does not matter if Jesus could write, He got His message out. Okay, now you will say He didn't. You can argue on and on and prove nothing. I accept the testimony of Jesus' disciples and their disciples down to their present day disciples: bishops of the Catholic Church.
Its not opinion that there is no physical evidence. It is fact.

ancient Jews did not inscribe epitaphs for the dead

After 300 years of Hellenism almost all the Jews spoke Greek. Why else did the Jews translate the old testament into Greek????? The priest didn't need it in Greek, the common people did.
so it was the Jews themselves who wanted the Torah translated into Septuagint! lol

Of course, Muhammad could neither read nor write but what did the Homo and pedophile Jesus write?

The biblical Jesus was an incompetent fool and an idiot in my humble view. Never answered questions properly, gave off-topic silly and stupid replies, acted like a wimp and a bigot and was always quarreling with the Jews. What kind of a useless character was that Schizo?

You have to understand, to a Jew, learning Greek is ESSENTIAL if only to allow us to order a Souvlaki with the proper trimmings.

I said you set the bet stupidly because:
1) You are begging other posters to pop in, but fail to realize that many of them do not care whether you are rich or struggling to arrive to the end of month.
2) What sense does it make the 3 out of 5? It can be 1 or 2 or 4 or 5 out of 5, or 3 out of 3. You have the mindset of elementary school kid.
3) Who is so idiot to give personal infos online to a stranger?
4) You have been exposed as a fraud, you are none of what you said to be and it was showen and recorded in this thread.
5) Since you are a liar the only way you can get me in is only when you provide with proof you have that amount of money. Only by showing them I'll be more than glad to give whatever amount you want and go on with the bet, but I let handle by lawyers not by your stupid set, abecedarian.
You need to see a doctor.
I know you can't afford one in poverty stricken mussolini land.
Hope some generous topix readers chip in to save you.
Now go away ignorant idiot.
