I do not feel a need to answer to others for
what I believe.
Awee well you just carry on there.
I know that you like to spam the thread with scriptures.

Still, if your beliefs can't handle scrutiny it explains your reticence at being drawn on this.

Have a nice day

I'm sure I have missed some...
More are coming to light as discoveries are made.
Alright. 2 thumbs up for archaeology.

Hey BT, this thread is moving so quickly that I have to skip many posts just to stay ahead. My cats only allow me 90 min. per day...lol

I'd like to refer to a post of yours a few days ago concerning magic and the kaballah.
I'd like to add that the orthodox Jews believe and accept that the patriarch Abraham was given this magical system by a messenger/s of god in a language not known to humans.
However, as time passed, this mss. was decoded and written into Hebrew.
What happened to the original?
Hey, who knows. Perhaps it's filed with the tome known as Necronomicon...lol

So why do you keep coming here?
REASONS FOR UNBELIEVERS TO POST ON TOPIX ATHEIST THREADS

[1] Learn from one another. This is atheist school, and we have many gifted atheist posters here.

[2] Sway any possible uncommitted lurkers or future readers.

[3] Practice formulating better and more cogent arguments.

[4] Practice writing skills.

[5] Tap the aquarium glass. Learn by observing the ecosystem of theists that parade through a thread.

[6] Fellowship with other atheists. There haven’t been too many venues for this in the past.

[7] Entertainment - it's fun.

[8] It's the right thing to do. The Christian church is a societal parasite that inflicts significant harm on Americans in particular.

What year did you become a doctor?
Why do you want to know? I don't trust your motives.

And what is a doctor to you? I got a medical degree the year I graduated, a license to practice the following year after completing an internship, and was ready to practice after completing a residency and passing my specialty boards two years after that.

You understand this is just the tip of the iceberg on why you are a bigot right? You are condemning the morality of 3/4ths of the United States based on knowing nothing about them other than their claimed religious affiliation.
Not exactly. I am likely criticizing most of them.

Is it possible you are still denying to be bigoted against Christians?
Yeah, it's possible.

I don't think much of your religion or most of you that practice it, but not every one of you. And that opinion is distilled from experience. Look at the lot of you on this thread.

You going on what the Jesus Seminar say?? oy!lol! This is just two things that the Jesus Seminary believes that makes it clear to everyone they are simply Atheists:
They dismiss any of the miracles of Jesus as just stories used to spark interest in Christ.
They dismiss the virgin birth as well as the resurrection of Christ because they cannot be explained by natural means.
http://www.allaboutreligion.org/critics-of-th...
So let me give you some better sources.
Professor Craig Evans. Trinity Western University. Princeton Theological Seminary
http://informationaboutgod.com/articles/Bible...
He says based on the material in the Gospel of Thomas, there is no way it could have been written before the canon Gospels. Evans claimed that book was written as late as 175AD-200AD, not even close to the rest of the gospels.
More evidence of 2nd century writing of Thomas and a summary of the differences of what Thomas say and what the Canon say about Jesus.
http://carm.org/does-the-gospel-of-thomas-bel...
And Thomas is the earliest gnostic book. So no way your other books could have been written before matthew mark luke or even the last written gospel john.
So if you going to use such a discredited source as the Jesus Seminary to make you point, then we can discuss the Jesus Seminary. Because all they claims are turning out to be false, and a joke. So you can believe the Jesus Seminary if you want to. And if you want to defend them, I up for it.
Hey, tri, a question that all should hear.
It is accepted by all reputable biblical scholars that the letters of paul of tarsus were the first ones to be written.
Yet, Paul >never< mentions that Jesus was born of a virgin.
Do you have any explanation as to why not?

Fantastic quote, I'm going to remember that. I like Colbert better though.
Thanks. I have some lulus assembled into a document. Here are some of my faves. The first one is for the Dimwit:

“Atheist are routinely asked how people will know not to rape and murder without religion telling them not to do it, especially a religion that backs up the orders with threats of hell. Believers, listen to me carefully when I say this: When you use this argument, you terrify atheists. We hear you saying that the only thing standing between you and Ted Bundy is a flimsy belief in a supernatural being made up by pre-literate people trying to figure out where the rain came from. This is not very reassuring if you’re trying to argue from a position of moral superiority.”- Amanda Marcotte

“This idea that I just didn’t try hard enough [as a Christian]… not only can I not imagine anybody who tried harder … but any god that expected more from me in seeking him out can kiss my ass”– Matt Dillihunty

"I heard a man loudly exclaim, "I am a christian!" Then I watched him awhile and decided I would not be" – Oukah

“According to mythology, Jesus' first act on earth was busting his mother's cherry.”– anon

“Humanity's first sin was faith; the first virtue was doubt.”- Mike Huben

"Faith transcends reason the way a criminal transcends the law." - Condell

"Can I just say how cute I think it is when a Christian thinks something is far-fetched?" - Sterling Crowe

“It must be quite galling for religious people to see atheists like me going about their business without a shred of guilt or self-loathing, and not in the least inclined to pray or to do penance of any kind, and not in the slightest bit worried about any form of eternal punishment. I have to admit if I was religious I'd probably think to myself: "How come I've got all this weight on my shoulders while these bums are getting a free ride?" – Condell

“I always flinch in embarrassment for the believer who trots out,“Atheism is just another kind of faith,” because it’s a tacit admission that taking claims on faith is a silly thing to do. When you’ve succumbed to arguing that the opposition is just as misguided as you are, it’s time to take a step back and rethink your attitudes.”- Amanda Marcotte

“When the philosopher's argument becomes tedious, complicated, and opaque, it is usually a sign that he is attempting to prove as true to the intellect what is plainly false to common sense”- Edward Abbey

I like that for a good morning lil sister... Seems that's how we both see a new day. Reminds me of
Exodus 14:14 The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.
So in peace we enter our day with him... and the rest... we'll see!

<quoted text>
What do you think about Jesus?
There was no one living in 1st century Judea named Jesus. It is one of the very few translated or modified names in the entire book called the bible. Most of the biblical characters kept their semitic names except the Hebrew known as Yahshua. I suppose it is easire for many to say 'Jesus' than it is to say Yahshua, or at least some may argue, and point out that they speak English. However, do they try to skip around or translate the name Melchizedek?

Yet many in here do not find it strange that the name of the most important figure in scripture was changed, and does not fit into biblical principle or the principle of names for the geographic location and time period. As far as I understand, it is one thing to have child-like ignorance, but a completely different thing to ignore the truth or wish to remain ignorant.

Shalom.

<quoted text>True. And that is the anti Christ spirit. I see that Le Le rode in and what a shock, got upset at words posted concerning a homosexual. Did she take issue with him posting vile things to chide the Christians? Nope. It speaks volumes.
Indeed, she comes in with the same old accusatory tripe all the time, according to Skom, she has renounced the idea that she is a "Christian", just as well as we knew it all along.
