I was watching his posts in the "Prove there's a God" thread when he was posting under the moniker "Pomona Atheist." He posts the same stuff over and over. He puts faith in hacks like Archaya S and then fails to bring forth any intelligent rebuttal when challenged.<quoted text>
Right. Christianity is a myth yet over 1 billion people believe in it. Millions of them are far far more intelligent than you are. Go figure.
Historical fact: Ancient Israel was home to the Hebrew people, also known as Jews.
Historical fact: The Jews were intensely monotheistic. They believed in one God. They were so monotheistic that they protested pagan Roman images and official emblems of Roman military power.
Historical fact: The epicenter of the Jewish faith in 1st century Palestine, was Jerusalem. It still is.
Historical fact: Christianity started in Jerusalem with the belief that Jesus had been crucified and raised from the dead in Jerusalem. Christianity could not have started in any other city while making this claim.
Question: Why would devout Jews invent a religion based on pagan influences that they detested, in the very city that was the epicenter of their monotheistic worldview?
Let's see how he answers this.
