The earliest surviving copy of a canonical text to date is a fragment of John.
It is the Rylands fragment, about the size of a postage stamp.
Qualified, non-theologically-motivated experts differ on its age.
Splitting the difference between reasonable experts, it usually is dated to 125 AD -- the early 2nd century.
Enter Daniel B. Wallace, a professor at a minor seminary in Texas.
Debating Bart Ehrman last year, he claimed a find of a first century piece of Mark.
Mark is usually dated to the 70's, so such a find is not impossible, but also is not likely.
Wallace said a book is upcoming that will disclose and discuss the find.
He claimed the publisher is Brill, I highly respected publisher in the field of scholarly rather than apologetic works.
If he was correct in the work being a year from publication, we should see something next month or so.
And then the best scholars will have a crack at it to test its mettle.
Film at 11:00.
Data concerning religion was all created by men.

Those old geezers could and did claim that the gods were giving them information.

Nonsense!

I suggest that when Pat Roberson claimed that a god gave him information, and the supposed data proved wrong ... he made a fool of his self ... and that served him right! Maybe he will stop making his foolish predictions.

I don't believe you are a "spiritual being apart from a physical being". From what I understand, all biological organisms function on energy, produce and use that energy through chemical synthesis, even down to the subatomic level, so in a way you create your own "spirit" if that is what you refer to it as. As I have stated before, that "energy does not need you, as it will always exist in one form or another,. You need it just to function and sustain biological existence as a human/mammal. Even the elements(matter) of your body are comprised of "energy", and will revert back to it's purest form when the host no longer sustains it.
So...the energy is a coexistent particular of your bio organism not dependent upon your bio organism to exist. Your bio organism, however, is totally dependent upon that energy as a contiguous living system.
I believe you are confusing spirit with energy, as I have indicated in previous posts, concerning the way religious doctrines have dumbed it down and misconstrued the term(s).
Now, once again, let me explain my conception of "spirituality".
It is the interaction of chemical compounds and electrical impulses involved in the brain receptors signaling the production of compounds and hormones stimulating interactive responses producing thought as well as physical feelings beyond the the mundane biophysical maintenance systems. This process is above and beyond the normal system in that it is purely without the construct of physical limitation and is suspended in a electro-chemical exchange of information without limitation, much like a superconductor. This can be realized as "spirituality", "cognitive awareness" in the conditions I have just explained.
You seem to a lot of difficulty understanding what I try to relate. I am putting it as simply and as clearly understandable as possible. You seem to always relate everything back to "religion", whether it has anything to do with it or not. What is it with that? It is as though you feel the need to subjugate each and every person to some form of "religion" so you feel it appropriate to bash them at will. That is an obsession I see in you.
"From your perception" when your energy (spirit) leaves your physical body at death, is that energy (spirit) aware that it has a purpose and a destination of where it must go to be at peace with its self?

The vast majority of canadian /american Catholics do not practice their faith as required according to the annual bishops conference.
Another huge sex scandal coverup going on right now in archdiocese Chicago, just after the huge coverup I'm minnesota., Philadelphia, Boston, San Diego, etc.
Practicing faith is a prime-time joke.

Prisons are full of those in religion ... and that includes those from the modern religious-fad known as Wicca.

Here's a scam artist that I suggest ought to be in prison ... but freedom of religion gives him the slack he needs to con he followers in his cult.

He even admited openly that he's a con artist when he stated verbatim ... "So you tell the millions of followers I have ...’Dat guy's a liar.’ You know what dey gonna say?...‘I prefer his lies.’"

For decade the archbishops of Chicago slept with a huge box of dirty secrets tucked under their pillow. When the bishops got up in the morning to say mass they sternly warned catholics to never commit such sins themselves that they were hiding themselves.
I can't believe catholics still hand over their paychecks to this organization of liars, deceivers and criminal cover up artists believing their promises of eternal bliss.
Where is the outrage by catholics towards these criminals???
Well Michael, if your not part of the solution your part of the problem.
Closing a blind eye and turning a deaf ear to these crimes is what has allowed it to go on for so long. Catholic's have actually sacraficed their children to this evil instituation out of fear.
So they are part of the problem, and as guilty as the people who have abused their children.
I am not catholic and as a child, I have been hearing about the abuse in the catholic church,, so I know these catholic's on here heard about it to, and they are still defending the catholic church.

John 3:15-20
King James Version (KJV)

15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

The silly end of time prediction has all but been worn out, and yet the preachers keep hammering the regurgitated nonsense into their flocks as absolute truth.

I know of a case right now where an old man is dying from cancer, and his wife informed him that he is more fortunate than is she, because he will not be around (as will she) to witness the devastation on earth when the apocalypse occurs.

She gave him that information to help him "feel better."

I suggest that non-human animals are the wise ones.

Wacky theology

When is sin active, and when is sin inactive?

After all ... if a savior died for your sin ... that must mean that if you have faith in the existence of that savior, sin has been completely deactivated and you are now sin-free ... RIGHT???

Otherwise the savior's death is nothing more than a handy-man's myth.

Protestants want you to believe that Protestant members of clergy don't and never have molested.

It's called scapegoating.

The Protestant Clergy Sex Abuse Pattern

But because this country is predominantly Protestant, more children are abused by Protestant ministers than by Catholic priests. In 1990, the Freedom from Religion Foundation issued a study on pedophilia by clergy. At that time, two clergy per week were being arrested in North America for sex crimes against children. Fifty-eight percent of them were Protestant.

Google Chicago archdiocese abuse and read again about the dozens of intentional coverups, lies and deceit towards you and the followers by cardinals, bishops and priests. I think you have enough on your plate from the same systematic coverups in your own diocese of lies, deceit and coverups.

I can,t comprehend someone like you who keeps supporting this organization that really doesn't give a damn for the followers of the faith and the leaders who claim to believe god exists in your church.

UNBELIEVABLE!!!

Actually Anthony, I am the first one to admit sexual abuse and physical abuse , is every where.
My Father was a Pentecostal Preacher, some of the sect of Pentecostal are right down scary. And like the catholic church has very little to do with God.
So religious sect with hold med's to their children , and their children die, some believe in beating their children to with in a inch of their life.
To force them to be rightious, wow that really is going to work , isn't it.
Must like the catholic church, doesn't matter what religion you belong to , sexual and phsyical abuse and verbal abuse is wrong. Its not from God.
My father went to jail Anthony, there was no cover up for eons,
God calls sex abuse a sin, its not a sickness like some people have called it ,God calls it evil Anthony 70% of your church down through history are guilty of crimes against children, and they covered it up.
And the only thing catholic's like you are sorry about is that it has been brought out into the open.

You just keep deflecting the real issue.

If god really existed he would never allow pedophiles, liars, deceivers and coverup artists to represent him. NO SIREE!!!
