Hey Chris, prove it.
My goodness you really are incredibly think today. Why do you think the Puritans banned christmas in 1659? Reason, because of it’s pagan origins

What people? Josephus? Characters in the bible? What testimony are considering evidence of the existence of a historical Jesus?
<quoted text>
Stunt?
What was your point with that? What do you think happened there? Dawkins called Jesus myth and fantasy, then agreed that the matter was "under dispute," that it wasn't "a very important question," and then said that most historians - or most ancient historians - thought Jesus was a real person. I didn't hear any apology from Dawkins, nor do I see what he would have to apologize for.
The fact that he didnt even apologise shows how utterly vile he is.

How can the bastard make an assertion like that?

How can Jesus be a fantasy when " most historians - or most ancient historians - thought Jesus was a real person"?

BTW, what does the fact that the historians were ancient have to do with the validity of the material they report?

Nonsense.
You probably should know that we don't take our scientific instruction from amateurs in science, most especially Christians ones. Your antiscientific agenda is well known.
Are you saying that science can be built on a negative argument; yes or no?

i disagree.
See, salvation must be integral - no part of existence (material, emotional, vital or mental) must be left out.
Every aspect of existence should be purified and perfected by infusing the lower reaches of existence with the superior powers of the higher ranges of consciousness-energy so that the whole system vibrates as a singularity. Perfection is the aim. Once this is achieved, then, there is no coming and no going. One simply IS!
My idea of Salvation involves the influence of God in removing what is valid from what is unnecessary; as in the restoration of the true self to its true place, away from the confines of this material prison.

Your idea of Salvation, especially the one you suggest that is independent of God (if you said so ) is fundamentally Lucifarian in nature.

Morality - Principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behaviour.- Behaviour as it is affected by the observation of these principles.
There is no absolute or relative nor is any religion involved, morality is predominantly a human trait (although not exclusively) and it has certainly been around for long before christianity. Without it civilisation would not have flourished.
However I really did think you would come up with some religious titbit, so funny that you quote Saulus who assisted in the capture of Judas the Galilean, better known to you as Jesus. Would you consider assisting in the capture of a murderous terrorist as moral? Or would you consider the capture of your lord and saviour as moral?
Did you ask a question or make a statement? I'll choose the former.

Yes, assisting in the capture of a murderous terrorist is a moral thing because the murdering terrorist is not doing moral deeds.

No, the capture, trial & execution of Jesus was not the moral thing to do. The Romans saw Jesus as a great threat to them. The 300 years following Jesus' execution & subsequent following of people to Jesus' name ruined the Roman Empire.

Are you saying all priests are atheists?
Since when did non belief in a deity become a religion? Come on I am eager to hear you explanation for your stupid comment
Atheism became a belief system as soon as the first atheist said "I believe there is no God."

The dichotomy that Atheists try to create between science and religion is false. The conflict is between interpretations of science coming from different religious worldviews.

Atheism shouldn’t be taught or enforced in settings where other religions are banned and shouldn’t be favored by laws which imply a religiously neutral government.

The bible is a book of myth.
Silly, scar.

How did the early Christians have a belief when they had no bible?

Why did the early Christians risk Roman capture, torture & execution so they could follow Jesus' teachings?

How did the Hebrews worship & know God, they had no bible.

You're wrong. Without the bible, God is still present.

Bugger-all? Is that English English?

You people are waiting with baited breath that someone can prove abiogenesis. Because you'll then believe that's how life began on earth, then evolved, thereby "proving" your belief.

He has already carbon dated things there to approx 5,000 BC which puts it at the time frame of Noah's flood.
He said the earth was covered in ice at one time.
Yes, he has, but his stated purpose to to try to see if a flood there might have led to people passing down tales of a Black Sea flood, which someone later devised the story of Noah's Ark, using that real flood as the idea which he/she developed the Flood myth from. He has not stated he is trying to prove that Noah's Flood did occur.

Christmas (Old English: meaning "Christ's Mass") is an annual commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ and a widely observed holiday, celebrated generally on December 25 by billions of people around the world.

It IS the celebration of Jesus Christ's birth.

It WAS various holidays.

Christianity has molded the world.

It is simple. Every creation must have a creator. Have you seen anything that created automatically or no one or nothing behind that creation? I think No.. So we all are creation from a creator.
Can you create anything? No, you can only change appearance in a simple environment.
Where you come from? you will say that from your Fa and Ma than go subsequently previous generation. What will come? where come from first human?
Issue with the watchmaker argument... How do you know that we are a "creation". Religion tells you so. How do you separate a God from a creation? From whence did the God come from?

Thanks, Ar Ar.

Now we're getting somewhere.

They borrowed and took from a variety of earlier and preexisting cultural/societal myths and traditions.

The bible is a collection of those earlier culturally assimilated myths and traditions from other peoples, not Hebrew.

The deity,'Yahweh", for instance, had origins in Canaanite deity beliefs and practices.
