You didn't give one detail.<quoted text>
I gave historical detail, friend.
And now you admit that you have no details.What arguments did they make? I don't know, I wasn't their.
You're making a claim. Support it.For those kinds of details you'd actual have to take the time to read lot of historical material on the Church Fathers.
They didn't even have the scientific method 2000 years ago. You have no provided even a single shred of evidence that anyone back then subjected the claims of Christianity to scientific scrutiny. Hell, you haven't shown that they were subjected to ANY scrutiny.All claims are subject to the scientific method ... 2000 years ago.
That was a pre-scientific era full of superstition. Even the Bible shows it. In Acts 28, Paul gets bitten by a snake, and the locals immediately think he's a god because he didn't drop dead. In Acts 14, a gimpy guy stands up when Paul and Barnabas show up and the locals think they're Hermes and Zeus.
This was a PRIMITIVE era.
You don't have historical evidence; you have religious legend.Thus, with historical evidence you can either accept what people back then accepted, or call them liars and prove that they lied.
Then why don't you apply that standard to other religious figures? Other religious texts talk about deities performing miracles and interacting with people. Why don't you accept all these claims?Same holds true for ANY historical figure.
Because they were never tried.If they were tried centuries ago, when who are we to call the judges and jury liars and reverse the conviction?
You still can't give me one argument they used.
You still can't give me one claim that was subjected to the scientific method.
No, it didn't. It may have largely come from Christians (and earlier pushed by the pagan Greeks), but that is a significant difference. Nothing in Christianity itself promotes scientific reasoning.Science did not come out of vacuum, it came from Christianity, who in turn preserved all the Greek literature they could.
It started as a Jewish cult; of course it started with Jews. They weren't intellectuals though. Christianity's appeal with primarily with the downtrodden. It was an underdog's religion.Who was first to convert to Christianity? The intellectuals. First the Jews, then the Greeks, the most learned men of the ancient world at the time.
The Age of Reason and Enlightenment were primarily secular endeavors. They CHALLENGED superstition, faith, and religion; they didn't endorse them.Or, do you just think it is a coincidence that the most advanced and scientific civilization on earth (Western Europe) and its Renaissance, Age of Reason, and Age of Enlightenment, just spawned from goo?
Science is a process that seeks natural answers to the universe's questions. This is in direct opposition to religion.
