.. hi ya Chris ..
.. humans are akin to three-headed dragons with the middle head having to make the ultimate decisions ..
.. the left head (Satan if you will) says, "Go ahead, it will be fun" ..
.. the right head (Higher Self if you will) says, " That's wrong, don't do it" ..
.. and, there you sit, caught in the middle of the drama, both dragon heads yowling instructions ..
.. what to do, what to do ??..
.. does this daily drama have anything to do with belief or unbelief? Or, is it simply a manifestation of the human condition ??..
.. anyway, when it comes to sex, my left head always wins. Can I blame it on Satan ??..
Sounds like Jiminy Cricket.

True. There is more to sex than sticking it in, although I wouldn't expect a man like RR to know that.

I have heard haiku defined as 3 lines with a total of 17 syllables. I prefer the stricter definition of 5-7-5 syllables. It looks like you do as well.
I've written a few of them. They're easier to do than rhyming poetry.

Uh-huh.... If I say there are more blacks in prison than whites, all of a sudden the claim is made that I hate blacks.
I wouldn't say you hate blacks (based just on that) but if you stated that as if it meant anything without any analysis as to how that comes to be, I'd say it shows you willfully ignorant. I didn't say ignorant, I said willfully ignorant. Part of your stock-in-trade is to take a shallow reading of a bare factoid or select quote and pretend they inform anything more of substance beyond that bare factoid or quote. That is willful ignorance. A greatest hits compilation could be called, "Stupid As I Wanna Be."

Jesus doesn't use those exact words, but He doesn't have to.
"Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.”
"before Abraham was born, I am!"
A married man can tell you he's married without saying "I'm married". He can say "Meet my wife" or "Today's is our wedding anniversary" or "I'm her husband". No matter which of those he says, you quote clearly understand that he's married.
There are many verses in the Bible where Jesus refers to Himself as God. There are many, many more where other refer to Him as God.
To my knowledge they are all in John.

John's Gospel was written as much as a century after Jesus' death, when the wagons had been circled, the lines were drawn, and everybody knew what the issues were. John was written with an agenda clearly in mind. It was written specifically to address all the weaknesses present in the earlier attempts to deify a poor ol' itinerant rebel preacherman called Yeshua.

That's why the most popular quotes allegedly uttered by Jesus are almost exclusively from John. All the others are too wishy-washy on the subject. John gives Christians the separation they so deeply crave. Paul may be the godfather of Christian exclusion, but John is the king.

The Gospel of John is so full if errors about Judaism and out right lies that it is a disgrace to everything that the Jesus of Mark and Matthew taught.
Curiously, it is the favorite (sometimes only) Gospel of Christians.

Without the Gospel of John (which is actually a 'Gnostic' text) Modern Christianity would collapse.

I see that Buck has leaped to the defense of Ehrman. No big surprise there. Buck defends every Christian apologist that is mentioned on these pages. Even though Buck claims to not be Christian.

BTW...the Wiki page on the Historicity of Jesus starts off with the warning...

"The neutrality of this article is disputed."

You will note that the theists citing this Wiki page failed to mention that little fact. As you have recently pointed out, there is a reason Christian apologists are not trusted.
