England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places to bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a bone-house, and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive... So they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell.

Now, whoever said History was boring?

It's the deserving-it-for-not believing part that distresses me. A Christian that says, "That is what I was taught, and I am in no position to say that it is wrong. But frankly, I don't understand it, and I wish it weren't so" is a different person from the one who says, "You deserve to suffer, infidel, and I'm glad of it."
That person is not my brother any more. He's not one of "us." He has been captured and turned by sinister forces. What kind of person teaches others to think like that? And what shall we think of the institution that keeps the meme alive?
Any institution that teaches death is a deserved or appropriate response for - non belief - a state of mind - should be eliminated.

If you really want to understand it all, you should look up the "Jesus Seminar"...it is a wholeistic and "real" ongoing approach by several scholars that addresses the "truth" of it all...like it or not attitude...it is what it is...they are exemplary in my opinion.
Yeah, I've looked at the Jesus! seminars. Seems like I have a .DOC on my comp here as well that gives a good overview of the first years of the meeting and results.

Here's more information about the Jesus Seminar, for those interested.

I agree the conclusions reached were well structured and logically arrived at, or, exemplary as you put it.

Red herring.

Scar: "Christianity" comes from a book.
You know...

Until you understand what logical fallacies are and how each one applies in a situation it'd behoove you to not accuse another of employing the use of a logical fallacy when I didn't.

It makes you look foolish.

I'm not trying to insult you.

Thank you Epi for bringing this forward, some do not realize what history went thru and the people in it to get us where we are today. Just my opinion Wished you find more of this to put here in the threads.

You should know, you use the red herring often. In this instance, you firstly comment on God, secondly comment on God and thirdly (after realizing you're losing) change your topic to Christianity. THAT is a red herring. You tried to change the topic of "God came from books" (which you know is stupid) to "Christianity came from books".

So either focus and stay on topic or I'll call you out each and every time.

Deal ?

Christianity is your deity belief. which comes from a book.

That's the deal.

The usage of Christianity was nothing more than a further and more clearly defined description of what your deity belief is, which, again, comes from a book.

That belief, Christianity, also, came from the Judaic belief, which comes from a book, which in turn, was taken from the Canaanite pantheon of deities, which are represented in Ugaritic texts, again, books, all of which are mythology.

Without those books, you would not believe in the deity you believe in.

Unless you can provide some sort of compelling and non biased evidences that can substantiate otherwise, that is the fact of the matter, and that fact is...

Your deity and your deity belief comes from a book.
