Are you still playing a game or just waiting for your boyfriend, Stinky?
There is no winner. There is no loser.
There is only commentary, nothing more.
Have you always been this obtuse or is today special?

So, what has happened to turn the most peace-loving institution the world has ever known (the New Testament church) into the biggest cheerleaders for war? I’m talking about un-provoked, illegal, unconstitutional, unbiblical–even secret–wars of aggression. The biggest cheerleaders for the unprovoked, unconstitutional, pre-emptive attack and invasion of Iraq were evangelical Christians. Ditto for the war in Afghanistan, the bombing of Libya, the attacks in Yemen, etc. Who is calling for the bombing of Iran? Evangelical Christians. Who cheers for sending more and more troops all over the world to maim and kill more and more people (including innocents)? Evangelical Christians. Shoot (pun intended)! Most evangelical Christians didn’t even bat an eye when the federal government sent military and police personnel to murder American citizens, including old men, women, and children–Christian old men, women, and children, no less–outside Waco, Texas.
And where are today’s evangelical Christians giving a second thought regarding their fellow Christian brothers and sisters in many of these Middle Eastern countries that are being persecuted, imprisoned, tortured, and killed by the puppet regimes being put in power by the US government–at US taxpayer (including Christian taxpayer) expense? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but more Christians have been persecuted under the US-imposed regime in Iraq than were ever persecuted when Saddam Hussein was in power. Oh! And don’t forget that it was the US government that was responsible for putting Saddam Hussein in power to begin with. The US government set up Osama bin Laden, too. But I digress.
In addition to the “white” wars (the ones everyone knows about), the US government authorizes some 70 black ops commando raids in some 120 countries EVERY DAY. In fact, the secret, black ops military of the US is so large today it now totals more personnel than the ENTIRE MILITARY OF CANADA!
A recent report noted,“In 120 countries across the globe, troops from Special Operations Command carry out their secret war of high-profile assassinations, low-level targeted killings, capture/kidnap operations, kick-down-the-door night raids, joint operations with foreign forces, and training missions with indigenous partners as part of a shadowy conflict unknown to most Americans. Once ‘special’ for being small, lean, outsider outfits, today they are special for their power, access, influence, and aura.”
America’s secret wars,

Thanks for that.

Of course, that moral value - that behavior promoting peace is preferable to picking fights - is older than Jesus.

What I am asking these Christians is what valuable moral advice Jesus originally contributed to the world. I think I already know the answer.

The matter of whether the Christians actually embody those values is a separate issue. I have argued before that not only are humanist values superior on paper, but that humanists are superior at teaching, learning, and living those values as well. That is, not only are Christian values either stolen or shabby, but that they can't seem to live even those as your citation attests.

Blessed are the peacemakers indeed. Meh.

God is the answer for why there is something instead of nothing? You don't see the problem with that, do you?

Arguments like that reinforce my thoughts about faith.

Wrong Skippy.
How can your "genealogy of Adam" laughable theory be used to determine the age of the Earth when Adam wasn't even around when God created the Heavens and the Earth in Genesis 1:1.
Epic fail Grasshopper!!!
Care to try again?
_______
And while you're at it, please feel free to dazzle us with your biblical knowledge by telling us how much time elapsed between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2.
We'll all be waiting Skippy.
Speaking of waiting...

Today’s scholars can only use the known, that is historical reigning Roman Emperors as a reference in determining dates.

So, since your Bible clearly and unambiguously claims that Jesus was born during the reign of Herod the King, then he, Jesus, had to have been born no later than 4 B.C.

Irony meter goes boom!

Jesus could only have been born a minimum of four years before the birth of Jesus?

After you stop laughing though, consider the import of this paradox.

That's what I thought: "Shouldn't you be napping? Nightfall will be here before you know it, and then its off to guard some warehouse or stock shelves or whatever mind-numbing, soul-crushing, unskilled, entry level job you're still doing. And step lively lest some teenager steals your job just for fun."

Enjoy.

As it stands, that is a hypothetical situation also. There is no record outside the Abrahamic writings that support that....and Exodus of over 6 million people is an absolutely fantasy.
I think it was about 4 million, but no matter.
And not one of them could read the stars well enough to find Polaris.
So they wandered around in circles in a desert 150 miles across.
For forty years.
Their lead elements should've been in Israel while the trail elements were still in Egypt.
