Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

They are already dead, are they coming back too? And then killed again?
In the English language, there are three basic tenses: past, present and future. This is common knowledge among all educated writers of the English language.

Jesus is talking in the FUTURE TENSE to a generation that was NOT alive at the time. He was foretelling the future.

FUTURE TENSE!!!

I know you are not stupid because you have shown you can grasp an answer even if you don’t agree.

And why won't you answer mine? Did I say something to offend you, too?

Jesus was talking to his boys, in the present, about the very near future. You copy and paste has been proven wrong, yet again.

More CAPS! The more CAPS you use, the truer your statements must be, right? LOL!

This is jesus talking to his boys, "23 At that time if anyone says to you,‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or,‘There he is!’ do not believe it."

I have given a number of examples of where jesus is talking to the disciples, in the present, about what they will see. Are they still alive? Are there 2000+ year old men walking around?

Who is jesus talking to here?

3 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately.“Tell us,” they said,“when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”

4 Jesus answered:“Watch out that no one deceives you.

Yes, the disciples.

Where, in the chapter does jesus change from talking to the disciples to talking to future generations.

"I know you are not stupid", I wish I could say the same for you.

Over 99% of the visible matter is plasma. That is charged particles, very susceptible to magnetic influences, and even capable of creating magnetic fields. Which can then lead to organizing itself into neutral particles. Particularly with other magnetic and gravitational forces laying about to help shape that organization. Even over some very vast distances.
You can not see a magnetic field. Only the effects of it on particles. I use the term particles for simplification. Same with distances.
Science has come up with something called dark matter or dark energy. You can't see it. Just the effects of it.
We see effects that require a magnetic field to be present to explain the phenomena. It can not be explained any other way.

There are no effects noted to date that require a creator. Other more likely explanations are possible.

Here is the answer you seem to miss. Jesus was talking to his disciples but he was speaking prophetically to the generation in the end times. Again for about the third time.

In the English language, there are three basic tenses: past, present and future. This is common knowledge among all educated writers of the English language. Jesus was talking in future tense.

Now am I going to have to keep repeating the same answer over and over or are you going to capture what I’m telling you.

I bet you would believe in the death penalty if it was enforced only on Christians. Why, hell you might even enjoy attending. You could even make some extra money selling soft drinks and popcorn to your atheist friends.

Your gang could have good Christian folks arrested and tried for singing too loud in church. Then sentence them to death by hanging the same day. Wouldn’t that be fun?

If he was talking in the future tense, then why would he say "I say to you," and then go on to say that these things will pass before a generation. Why not say something that makes it clear who he is speaking to? For as long as the concept of the christian rapture has existed, people like you have been constantly backpedaling and having to explain why the rapture has not occurred yet. And this dishonesty and ignorance allows assholes like Harold Camping to ruin a lot of lives.
