The book has no power.
For numerous and complicated reasons, Christianity is popular. If Greek Mythology were still popular, we'd be debating it, thinking about it, and occupying our minds with it. And we'd be having a better time, because Greek Mythology is far more interesting than Christian Mythology.
But it's not Greek mythology that occupies your time is it?

It doesn't matter. No answer would suffice. No proof would be sufficient. His mind is already made up and closed.

That is the point ain't it? Afraid to follow the evidence, no matter where it leads.

There are far more Christian mythology threads.

Hmm, eyewitness accounts would sure hold up in a court of law, wouldn't it? Most times when we can't trust the word of someone we dont know who says that they saw something and had given detailed descriptions, it is most likely because we tell big lies ourselves and think that someone is always gonna lie to us. A story from an eyewitness woud be acceptable to me as evidence of something did happen. And I never said trust me. I dont know U! I said trust that there is info that supports the fact that extra beings have and still are visiting. If I saw an angel, I wouldn't know that it's an angel. The depictions of angels are just a european look that were passed down to try an convince the conquered peoples of color that white skin-peoples were superior to all and that if people of color (red, black, brown, yellow) were to believe that God is white, then it would be easier to oppress because at the same time people would associate a white man to a white savior and would not find it hard to submit to the will of the europeans. A total distortion of the past has created a bunch of religious nuts who can't tell the difference between God's word and the words of mere men. Aw yea, as far as extra beings, the evidence is there but I can't provide U with it because U already have it. U've just been caught up in the misinformation campaign and decided not to believe until some scientist or government agency tells U to. Remember the lies about Roswell? People laid on their deathbeds and finally came forward about the cover-up of the crash site because in the end, there's nothing to lose. These beings were most likely referred to as Gods.

It's not about a straight up tally, it's about how many are "right" in relation to how many are wrong. Other things, like specificity, accuracy, depth, etc. are more important than how many.

Eyewitness testimony is notoriously unreliable. The fact that courts accept it does not make it any better. And eyewitness testimony becomes even more suspect when it is part of a narrative that depends on said testimony.

I don't have "evidence of other beings." You're being obtuse. Share this evidence, or admit that you don't have it. And wtf are you talking about roswell for? What in the world does that have to do with anything?

I am very open to new information. There is nothing about my worldview that precludes me from believing in a god. It would actually be nice to think that there's some anthropomorphic deity up in the sky looking down on me, wishing me well. I just don't have the evidence to justify such a belief.

We don't live in ancient greece. Christianity is the dominant religion in our culture.
