You're wrong. Early Christian hero Justin martyr lamented at how satan had created Mithraism before Christ came to try to cause concerts to stumble. He had several debates with followers of Mithra and hated it because they were always showing how Jesus was stolen from their relogion's figurehead.

LMFAO!
A Pagan website?!? That's your "source"???
Did you bother to check on when Mithraism was? No?
'twas after Jesus, after Christianity. In the 2nd & 3rd century AD. And it was just a Greco-Roman paganist cult.
Maybe a copy?
Naaaaaawww......

We can observe space Dave, surely you can do better.

That is anything beyond what the matter and energy we are constructed of can touch or see.
You can not touch or see space, yet it occupies most of our space. It is even within you. All you can detect is what matter isn't there. You can assume some things work though it, such as dark energy and dark matter, but you can't touch it or see it. But science says "they know its there". It has to be because their material observations don't add up with out it.
The very same thing happens with religious beliefs and spirituality.

All you're doing is misrepresenting each verse & taking it out of context.
You're displaying intellectual dishonesty.
Why?
There's that "out of context" excuse. In what "context" is the killing of innocent people morally correct?

The dishonesty comes when people make excuses for bad behavior, in any context.

That can often be avoided, well, almost always be avoided actually. Go ahead, dare you to find one case in which it cannot.

So ... that's all you have, a declaration of victory without even presenting an argument, instead you just make the assertion for me. How very ... christian ... of you.
