Gaelic is rare. Afrikaans have maybe 2-3 million first language speakers. The amount of people that understand it, maybe double or triple that. Of course, you know "bantu" education during Apartheid years, well, they forced everybody to take Afrikaans as either second or third language. This has filtered through to other generations - I am sure that True Truth most likely does not even see an Afrikaans person during his working day, yet I would bet my new set of wheels that he is able to keep a decent conversation in it - say hi, goodbye, ask directions or for a product from a grocer.

You make up all kinds of things that only prove you can deal with the real problems which are the contradictions and other errors found on every single page of the Bible.

You have nothing else going for you except pretending you know something the rest of us don't know. And with each and every post I prove that what you know is wrong and divorced from reality.

I understand you are upset and I will make this promise to you; when you and the other pew warmers stop lying I'll stop posting the truth.

First of all, even if the phrase “Son of Man” is a reference to Jesus' humanity, it is not a denial of His deity. By becoming a man, Jesus did not cease being God.[the rest of the blah blah blah snipped]
How could Jesus, whom the New Testament repeatedly refers to as the
son of man, be our savior when this is clearly forestalled by Psalm
146:3 ("Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man in whom
there is no help") and Job 25:6 ("How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm")?

What isn't clear about not putting your trust in the son of man who is Jesus because there is no help? Clearly the Bible teaches us that the son of man, Jesus, is a worm.

Now you can dance around that all you want, but normal people can read it and decide for themselves if I have quoted the verses accurately and if your dog and pony show explanation flies.

Why is God so stupid that he can't be clear so that we do not need you to tell us what God really meant? If your God is that stupid how can we trust him about the afterlife?

You clearly have no capacity to differentiate between Christian mythology and reality. You're certifiably insane and should be institutionalized immediately, kid.
I agree completely. Christians just hate facts and truth. They falsely believe that they can explain Biblegod to us and we should say, oh OK now I understand the Bible is all pink and fuzzy warm.

The truth is the Bible can not be trusted any more than the apologists can. Here is another example of why we can not trust the Bible:

Rom.3:23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."
1Kgs. 8:46 "...for there is no man that sinneth not,...."
Prov.20:9 "Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?"
Eccl. 7:23 "For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not."
Mark 10:18 "And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God."
Rom. 3:10 "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one."
(Also 1 John 1:8 & 10, Rom. 3:12, 5:12, Gal. 3:22)

Versus

Gen. 6:9 "Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God."
Job 1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.
Job 1:8 "...my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?" (Job 2:3)
Gen. 7:1 "And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation."
Luke 1:5-6 "In the days of Herod, the king of Judaea,there was a priest named Zacharias, of the division of Abia: andhe had a wife of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.(RSV)

That is just a personal attack. You have refuted nothing and you have explained nothing but most of all you have provided no proof that this God you allege actually exists.

You do know that you are showing the world what terrible dishonest people all your Christians are? Now that you can't tie us up to the stake and burn us alive any more we are fighting back and showing you as the morally bankrupt people that you are.

One of the most important concepts in Christianity is original sin or the belief that all mankind has inherited a sinful nature brought about by the acts of Adam and Eve.

Rom. 5:12 "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:"
Rom. 5:19 "For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners,..."
1Cor. 15:22 "For as in Adam all die,..."

Yet, no amount of theological reasoning can make an inherently unjust idea seem right. Punishing billions of people for the acts of one is not only inherently unfair and unwarranted but also in opposition to other Biblical verses such as:

Deut. 24:16 "The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers.

2 Chron.25:54, "...:every man shall be put to death for his own sin."

2 Kings 14:6, "wherein the LORD commanded, saying, The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, nor the children be put to death for the fathers; but every man shall be put to death for his own sin."

Ezek. 18:20 "The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bearthe iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him."

Ezek.33:20 "O ye house of Israel,I will judge you every one after his ways."

Jer. 31:29-30 "In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge. But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge."

Rom. 2:6 "Who will render to every man according to his deeds."

Ezek. 18:4 "... the soul that sinneth, it shall die."

Each of these verses shows that every person should only be punished for those sins which he commits, not those of others.

That is merely a philosophical way of looking at it, and it all sounds rosy when there is good work being done, but the folly is easily seen when we have people disgracing the field. For example, the Piltdown man hoax. It was a hoax created by one man who wanted to be rich and famous in his life. Are we now to give science a persona and say "science lied to us!"? It's ridiculous. Science didn't lie. One man lied.

As it is we have RR ranting about how "Science" is telling us one thing, and now telling us something else, as if it is some voice.

Pew warmers, eh.. You alan POE, are a pew jumper, who speaks/writes in an unknown tongue.... Amen!!
Attack me all you want. It PROVES that you can not find solutions to the Bibles endless supply of errors and contradictions.

For example, if I claimed that the Bible said "there is no God" instead of attacking me the messenger you would correctly state that that was taken out of context and you would put it back into context to prove your case simply by quoting the entire verse:

Psalm 14:1, The fool says in his heart, "There is no God."

And you would prove me wrong. But you can't prove me wrong so instead you attack me because you do not like the Bible verses I post together which prove the Bible is unreliable and can not be trusted.

Why here is more proof: Many verses show God either does not know something or is seeking to obtain information. That is the clear import of Psalm 14:2 ("The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God"). Why would he look down to see if he already knew? Ezek. 20:3 says, "Thus saith the Lord God; Are ye come to inquire of me? As I live, saith the Lord God, I will not be inquired of by you." Again we see God seeking information. In Num. 22:9 ("And God came unto Balaam, and said, What men are these with thee?") we again find God seeking information. In Hosea 8:4 ("They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not... ") and Gen. 18:21 ("I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know") God directly states he lacks some information and, unless he is lying, the conclusion is clear. When he says He does not know something, that should settle the matter and would have done so long ago had anyone else been involved. But because his followers can not conceive of him being deficient in any respect, they don't believe him. I, on the other hand, take him at his word. It's only reasonable that if he said it, he meant it. Biblicists are actually saying to God: You don't really mean that God, now do you Oh, yes he does. Don't they believe Scripture! They sure do when it fits their needs and complies with their predilections. One could also consult Gen. 3:9, Gen. 4:5-6, 4:9, 2 Chron. 32:31, and Amos 9:3 for additional confirmation of God's lack of omniscience. As is so often true, once biblicists have a concept embedded in their psyche, God himself can't change their minds.

Of course it's self correcting. Science is a field to understand everything around us. And everything around us, always stays the same. It is only our perception that differs and since we always have a standard, that perception can be challenged.

The Bible is a hogdepodge of philosophy, history and science of widely varying accuracy. History is often a set of lies agreed upon. Philosophy is inexact and widely varying from culture to culture, and back then the fields of science, magic and myth were all fused together.

You know the meaning of son of man in the Hebrew terms and also the meaning of son of man in Aramaic from Jesus time. Don't twist a simple Biblical passage to suit your ends.
You are the only one twisting simple biblical passages to suit your ends. The Psalm do not trouble me at all, but obviously it troubles you a great deal, and for good reason. You know that when normal people read that Psalm that they are going to conclude that Jesus can't help them and that Jesus is a worm. It seems clear enough to me.

But you don't like what God is telling us about Jesus; that he can't help us and he is a worm. So what is left for you to do? Write lot of words, claim you explained something and lastly insult me and my motives.

What did God say in Hosea 8:4? God stated, "They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not..." God stated, "I knew it not"; he stated it directly. What more do you apologists want? At the end of Gen. 18:21 ("I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know") God directly states that he will then know, which means he did not know beforehand.

Frankly, I don't know what it would take to convince you biblicists that God can come up short in the knowledge field. You won't even accept God's own words, words that did not come from men or atheists, but straight from God's "divine word."

Clearly you do not believe God.

The Bible is just a seed to make people think beyond the immediate physical world of action/reaction. Gives greater depth to life than just sitting in a bar, watching TV, or endeavoring to keep up with the latest fads. That and other religious works can give one broader horizons and capabilities of survival. It can even stir the minds of pseudo-intellectuals like Topix atheists, not that it will accomplish much.

"...the Lord he is God; there is none else beside him" (Deut. 4:35);
"...for there is none like thee, neither is there any god beside thee" (2 Sam. 7:22);
