No, no. Catcher already said that "SHE'll have to deal with him".
I think Catcher's threatening to beat up a chick.
Beat up?

What's your obsession with violence?

Oh, I know, it must be that Biblical influence.

Oh, and I have been very considerate not to bring up your sordid past.

The Truth is Known...
No, they're not. The biblical Jesus is an amalgamated myth who never uttered a single word and you're an idiot for failing to recognize the greatest story ever sold.

Encyclopedia Britannica cites these various secular accounts of Jesus' life as convincing proof of his existence. It states:

"These independent accounts prove that in ancient times even the opponents of Christianity never doubted the historicity of Jesus."

Some German higher-critical scholars in the 18th and 19th centuries had questioned Jesus' existence, pointing out that such key figures as Pontius Pilate and the chief priest Joseph Caiaphas in the Gospel accounts had never been confirmed as real. No rebuttal was possible until the mid-20th century.

Archaeologists in 1962 confirmed Pilate's existence when they discovered his name included in an inscription on an excavated stone. Likewise, the existence of Caiaphas was uncertain until 1990, when an ossuary (bone box) was discovered bearing his inscription. Archaeologists have also discovered what they believe to be Simon Peter's house and a cave where John the Baptist did his baptizing.

Dr. Michael Grant of Cambridge has written, "To sum up, modern critical methods fail to support the Christ-myth theory. It has 'again and again been answered and annihilated by first rank scholars.' In recent years 'no serious scholar has ventured to postulate the non-historicity of Jesus.'
17.Michael Grant, Jesus (London: Rigel, 2004), 200.

Yale historian Jaroslav Pelikan declared, "Regardless of what anyone may personally think or believe about him, Jesus of Nazareth has been the dominant figure in the history of Western culture for almost twenty centuries.... It is from his birth that most of the human race dates its calendars, it is by his name that millions curse and in his name that millions pray."
18.Jaroslav Pelikan, Jesus through the Centuries (New York: Harper & Row, 1987)

I don't believe that any Historian would argue the historicity of Jesus of Nazareth. There's just too much evidence to deny his existence.

One of the keys here for many scholars is the time factor. Myths and legends usually take hundreds of years to evolve—the story of George Washington never telling a lie was probably a lie, until two centuries turned it into legend. News of Christianity, on the other hand, spread too quickly to be attributed to a myth or legend. Had Jesus not existed, those who opposed Christianity would certainly have labeled him a myth from the outset. But they didn't. They just simply couldn't.

Into a snake.
What logical sense would it make to curse a snake to be a snake?

Poofing is an atheist belief. They think God magically poofed the universe into being. Even though the Bible clearly says He created it.
Creating is quite different than poofing.
You're an atheist, which means you have a closed mind. I don't expect you to understand.
Uh, no. We think you think there's a god. That's quite different than you clumsy statement above.

You on the other hand were f*cked up from childhood by racist, authoritarian and highly religious parents.

It's transparent, RH.

It shows in your attitudes, your fear of anything foreign, they way you try to smack people down, your inability to listen to reason, your mocking tone, and your obsessive need to argue a stupid point (e.g., serpent v. snake) endlessly.

You're wrong! The facts are irrefutable. There are precious few documents outside of the bible supposedly in support of an historical Jesus and these documents are blatant forgeries.

So is the 6,000 year old earth. You atheists can be as gullible as the Creationists.
Okay, I'll play along.

"God did it"

Magic, yes?

"Poof", yes?

If I'm wrong, please tell me how.

Alright you European moron, you're pushing my patience.
There is a flicking difference between 'Serpent' and 'serpentia'.
As a self-proclaimed genius atheist, YOU should know that.
There is nothing classier as 'serpentia' that is not a snake.
There are 'serpents' that aren't snakes.
NAME ONE!!!

I suppose a you-tube video trumps scholars from Yale and Cambridge.
