Please let ChristineMC2 know that a scope is useless aiming from Southern California to England.
If you have a scope that can be used to target anything the size of a human in England, from California, then the firearm must also be equally capable of that range. And I don't believe my shoulder could withstand the recoil of such a weapon. Ouch!!

"Bethula" can also mean "living under her father's domain." In this case, the translation could be correct if Mary was living with her parents at the time of her conception. Almah can also mean virgin and young woman.
Matthew, as a first century Jewish man, would know the cultural context. We must also allow for changes in linguistics over several generations within the same culture. For example, in the United States the word "gay" means a male who is in a romantic relationship with another male, or prefers sexual relations with other males. 50 years ago "gay" was synonymous with "happy." Now let's look at another difference in word usage. In England, a "fag" is a slang term for a cigarette. In the United States it's a derogatory term used to refer to a male who displays feminine mannerisms and habits, or to one who is believed to be gay.
As Israel became Hellenized, it's quite possible that words became transposed in this way as well as they are in our own modern time. With regard to the Dead Sea Scrolls, they were written approximately 125 years before the time of Christ. When compared with the original writings of Isaiah approximately 700 years before Christ, we can see we have a 600 year time span in which word usage could have changed. If it can change over time as little as 50 years, then it's not wise to assume that word usage didn't also change in other cultures in human history.

Him resurrected from the grave.

You are the god of everything --
He's inside you and me.
So lean upon Him gently

Ya. Still.
I'll continue to press the issue that atheists spend a great portion of their time fighting a religion they think is myth and a God they think doesn't exist until any one of you make it make sense as to why.
Your bitching and whining notwithstanding, you still haven't made any sense about it. For example, you complain about God being on US currency but you're eerily quiet about the other symbols on our money. Why? Because you don't care about anything else, all you wan to do is demean Christianity as much as you can because you despise us.
You're a petty, pathetic loser of a man, IANS.
He eats, drinks and dreams his obsession. If you knew just how much of his waking life is committed to this vendetta/compulsion of his you would not believe it. The time he spends writing atheist speeches/sermons, the travelling to "give" sermons, the comments he leaves on all his buddies various sites...wow, it IS dementia.

If the fundamentalists/end timers knew about his many, sympathetic sects activities, they would probably believe that Satan's army was readying for a march.

You are the one claiming Christians aren't Christians.

I believe in God and Jesus, I am NOT a Christian and pray I never am.
Many do seem to translate the bible with their own ideology-specific decoder; i.e., idiosyncratically friendly.

I have a friend, who, related to me one day that her exuberant mood was due to the fact that she was a born-again virgin.....that's right, that's no typo. I was like, "wha...huh?!" And she explained that she had confessed, contritely...of course, ALL of her carnal activities and that God/Jesus had forgiven her and made her "new...again" Virginal again.

I busted out laughing and she *tried* to look insulted but then gave a sly smile and was like, "What?" I laughed again and asked had she "checked" to make sure. She never bothered to play that shyt with me again.

Some people try to twist it(bible meaning) to fit their own desires. Too much desire leads to obsession, and no obsession is a good one.

Yes, that's what I just said. That's the current theory anyway, for Topix Atheists! it's the going fad.
And backed by evidence such as:

Physiological similarities (fingernails, face, positioning of the eyes and ears
DNA evidence
ERV evidence
Fossil specimen showing more human like properties developing

Theory? You bet. A damned fine one.

Wana disprove it? Easy. Go find a modern human skeleton from the Cambrian

YOU are the one who claims that freeloaders claiming belief [briefly] to get freebies are Christians. Having their name added to a roster to satisfy a church quota does not qualify them as real Christians in any real sense of the word.

The sad part is, that one of the missionaries (First Baptist) who admitted this hypocrisy was real, felt no shame in participating in the fraudulent claim of having acquired true converts. A convert for a day is no convert.

A sample midterm from a university history course:

Based on the following excerpt from Gregory of Tours' History of the Franks (circa 550 AD), extract as much information a possible. No less than 250 words.

" The nineteenth was I, unworthy Gregory, who found the church of Tours, in which the blessed Martin and the other bishops of the Lord were consecrated in the pontifical office, shattered and ruined by fire. I rebuilt it larger and higher, and dedicated it in the seventeenth year after being ordained; and in it as I learned from the old priests the relics of the blessed Maurice and his companions had been placed by the ancients. I found the very box in the treasury of the church of St. Martin, and in it the relics, greatly decayed, which had been brought because of their miraculous power. And while vigils were being kept in their honor I wished to visit them again by the light of a torch. And I was examining them intently when the keeper of the church said to me: "Here is a stone with a cover, but I don't know what it has in it and I haven't been able to learn from my predecessors who have had charge here. Let me bring it and you look carefully to see what it contains." I took it and opened it of course,­ and found a silver box containing relics of the witnesses of the blessed legion as well as of many saints both martyrs and confessors. We also found other stones hollow like this one, containing relics of the holy apostles and the rest of the martyrs. I wondered at this bounty divinely given and after, giving thanks, keeping vigil, and saying mass, I placed them in the cathedral. I placed the relics of the holy martyrs Cosmas and Damian in St. Martin's cell close to the cathedral. I found the walls of the holy church consumed by fire and ordered skilful workmen to repaint and adorn them with their er splendor. I had a baptistery built close by the church, where I placed the relics of the holy martyrs John and Sergius, and in what had been the baptistery I placed the relics of the martyr Benignus. And in many localities in the territory of Tours I dedicated churches and oratories and glorified them with relics of the saints, but I think it tiresome to speak of them in order.

I wrote ten books of Histories, seven of Miracles, one on the Lives of the Fathers; a commentary in one book on Psalms; one book also on the Services of the Church. And though I have written these books in a style somewhat rude, I nevertheless conjure you all, God's bishops who are destined to rule the lowly church of Tours after me, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and the judgment day, feared by the guilty, if you will not be condemned with the devil and depart in confusion from the judgment, never cause these books to be destroyed or rewritten, selecting some passages and omitting others, but let them all continue in your time complete and undiminished as they were left by us. And bishop of God, whoever you may be, if our Martianus has trained you in the seven disciplines, that is, if he has taught you by means of grammar to read, by dialectic to apprehend the arguments in disputes, by rhetoric to recognize the different meters, by geometry to comprehend the measurement of the earth and of lines, by astrology to contemplate the paths of the heavenly bodies, by arithmetic to understand the parts of numbers, by harmony to fit the modulated voice to the sweet accents of the verse; if in all this you are practiced so that my style will seem rude, even so I beg of you do not efface what I have written. But if anything in these books pleases you I do not forbid your writing it in verse provided my work is left safe."

Rote memorization my ass !
