I'm in...however I can't god-damn because a god-being's existance is in question and evil is an invention of religion that requires a being that explains and forgives (to religious people) man's immoral actions.

Trust me. I fell off my Nishiki and saw him.

Well, there is the proof he was resurrected and is God.

Empty tomb and you saw him afterwards.

Hannibal saves!

And in todays economy, that's a miracle!

Please provide any document outside your religion that has information on this crucifixion .....
Jesus' and Matthew's executions are recorded in the Talmud.

No resurrection though. <smile>

But God needs "messengers."
Have you really thought about this?
Satan is not powerful, or subtle. Whether you realize it or not... you are not only one of his messengers, you are a pawn in his ever-present game. Have you really thought about this?

<quoted text> The date range for both persons is from 247 to 118 BC which is a span of 129 years in which both are above ground for 17 years from 183-200 BC. That means Polybius is about 17 when Hannibal dies in 183.
''Fifty years after the end of the war with Hannibal, Polybius began to write his comprehensive history of Rome.''

Exactly.
They were contemporaries.
You were wrong.

That was a world-view to sate the visiting Christians.

Personally, I think the future looks magnificently bright.

Topix, like Vidor, Texas and Christianity will be dragged forward.

Wrong.

And then, like the fundies here, he proclaims himself "winner" of the debate.
O'Reilly's just being a good Irish-Catholic...you shoulda seen me father flippin' the bird at people who cut him off driving...while exiting St. Patrick's parking lot after service on Sundays,full of the Spirit(s). Kid you not. No offence to the Irish:)

Yo, G
You'll have to clarify exactly where you found that "He got up and went home" reference. May I recommend a careful re-read of GoMark. It's a quick read.
If one is to take GoMark at his word, which one can do, one should use those words, eh? The resurrection is a theme of the book.
The words, pretty clearly placed on the lips of a young man, dressed in white at the empty tomb:
Mark 16:6
But he said to them,“Do not be alarmed. You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has been raised ( egeir&#333; )! He is not here. Look, there is the place where they laid him.
BTW, when I argue with Christians, I always tell them that I have G_O_D on my side, so be a pal and just nod and smile like a good deity.
*wink*
Gooda see ya.
.... He is risen! He is not here...He is going before you into Galilee.....

In the Greek, "He is risen" is simply "arose" as in "woke up" "got up" etc. It has no zombie connotations.

"Into Galilee" The place of his origins, "Home"

Thus, Mary is told "He got up and went home."

BTW, <nod> <smile>
