In fact, most Jews are Black and since Israel is in the Northern portion of Africa, which we call the Middle East, it is you who needs to explain your prejudices.
Unless you are claiming the Imhotep was a Martian, then he was a black African king who was known as the Great Pyramid builder.
It's always refreshing to see a bigot at work.

Do you still have your white sheet?

Peekaboo!

Consult the library and you can learn all you wish about Imhotep.

Example: And a cool piece I might. Add ;)

In Ancient Egypt, Imhotep was considered to be an example of "personality cult" of Kemet, the notion that a person can be deified after his death and become some sort of a special intercessor for the living.

Nonetheless, the conditions of Imhotep’s death are unknown. The mystery behind his death is amplified as his disappearance coincided with the disappearance of all his medical texts and architectural manuscripts.

His tomb has never been found.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imhotep#sectio...

In addition, despite his major impact on Ancient Egyptian architecture and field of medicine, even ancient historians failed to write about him, which adds to his mystery.

What makes this mystery somewhat ironic is that the name "Imhotep" in Ancient Egyptian language translates to “He who came in peace,” underlining the way he came into the world, made his impact, and left it in peace taking all his genius work with him. However, Imhotep became even more famous with his death and was worshipped for 2,000 years afterwards.

Because of the mystery behind his death, he was considered as a demi-god. In Greek mythology, Asclepius was the god of medicine, therefore, Imhotep was often associated with him. Some even believed that he was Asclepius himself.

Only statues made of him remained which referred to his genius mind and served to illustrate his existence on earth. After his death, he was known to be responsible for the use of columns and monumental stone in Egyptian architecture and considered to have fully advanced ancient Egyptian medicine.

Nevertheless, he slowly turned into a legend and then a myth

Yeah, you get it. Rational people do. You have a certain flair for exposing these antitheists that I'm enjoying.
I've heard enough nonsense in the last five years to last a lifetime. At this point they know my simple prerequisites for debate. Everything relevant has been covered and/or exposed.
Welcome to Stumpville!
Stump John: ask him for an .... ARGUMENT in support of his delusions.

John never delivers.

I'm glad we have established your forum has no accountable position of belief or adequate way to weigh evidence.
If that's all you have, its duly noted. I'm not alluding that I think you have an agenda, I know you do. Four years of posting accusations and attacks against Christianity confirms that.
Now if you don't believe in God what's the fixation? You don't believe anything is evidence in this arena. I'm not going to fend off multiple and repeated questions in your forum. You folks are the ones running from any substantive debate. If that's because your nonposition doesn't allow it then stop the lunacy of trying to make your disbelief relevant. One sentence sums up atheism.
Your continued attempts to marginalize belief is entirely different than simply not believing. Most of the world believes something larger than us is responsible for the universe. There are many reasons and rationales why that belief persists. This conclusion is derived in different ways by different people. Some come to the decision based on logic and evidence. Many ex-atheists become believers in this manner. C.S. Lewis being one. To me these are some of the more interesting thinkers on the subject.
Francis Collins mapped our genetic code and sees design. The list is endless and isn't pigeonholed by only one discipline. I don't debate nothing. Do your own homework I'd you want but this narrative you want to convey that belief is absurd and has absolutely no evidence I reject. What I do know is no evidence is good for YOU. Fair enough. Going further and marginalizing belief as you sit on the fence is childish.
There is a reason you don't want to debate your nothing vs my something. You don't know where to begin. I do. I don't care if it satisfies you or not. This is your forum. I don't debate nothing and won't apologize for it.
I will accept your apologies for spending four years attacking reasoned faith you don't have in your own forum. Talk about bait and switch LOL.
....and empatheist no need to apologize for not submitting the second half. It is tiring and you just started. Try to remember that. You are dealing with just a few theists as opposed to the dozens of antitheists I am. Yet another reason I don't feel an obligation to address every nonsensical claim thrown into the mix. You want a debate. You know the terms.
I find it interesting that the evidentiary standard you use and I've exposed is the sole barometer you want to weigh my evidence in your forum is. It must be easy to attack, question, ad infinitum from the fence. Anyone can throw monkey shyte.
....so, another day of bigot marching begins. Little Kim Jongs making noise. 4
I believe you are a demonstrated idiot.

I believe you are also hateful in the extreme; your bigotry extends to many others in the world, but especially to everyone who doesn't buy into your hateful delusions.

I believe you have been shown to be an uneducated moron.

I believe you actually think that the ReThuglicans give a sh7t about.... you. When reality suggests that the only thing ReThuglicans give a sh7t about, is the top 1%. Which you clearly are not a member of.

I believe you are uneducated, and likely never completed high school.

Shall I go on?

Doesn't matter: you are all batsh7t insane.

There is no getting around that -- you are nucking futz.

Batsh7t crazy. Off your rocker. Looney.

You have, and I mean this literally, lost your mind.

<quoted text>They really are too easy. I expected that they would at least give it a good ole attempt. The best they could do was Cgay trying to blame Bush for what Clinton did and then saying that it was the GOP senate and house which repealed the Glass-Steagall Act. That exposes the fact that it was also the GOP who balanced the budget and not Clinton and he was done, toast.
Oh! I did not realize how batsh7t crazy you were-- but you just cemented the deal!

Too funny!

Your state of mental delusion is beyond the average True Believer™-- you are literally living in a fairy-world of make-believe.

I disagree!

John does deliver - Almost as quick as your Pizza Hut - She delivers pabulum - Identical stale taste as her last pizza - She has received the Fred Phelps award of honor - She desperately needs attention - Someday she may work herself up to a Syllable.

She needs seed money To continue her tireless robo-posting efforts - And use of more letters on the keyboard copy paste is about all she knows.

I am jealous!

Our favorite Jesus Roche a.k.a. John has never included me in one of his nothing posts.

Oh the horror. Did that sound sarcastic?

Silly boy you can't hear writing! John Can!

He sees the invisible knows the unknowable, a 'legend in his own mind'.

He pats himself on the back so often I'm surprised she hasn't broken both Arms!

John hasn't posted anything new in months-- he has cut-and-pasted the same sh7t so often, I recognize it from the first couple of words-- so I know it's safe to skip over. Nothing new.

I doubt he's capable of an actual, original thought-- that would literally break his head.

<quoted text>Sorry, bigot, it is you who has the problem when Imhotep being a black Jew, not I. Perhaps, it is you with the white pointed hood.
No, bigot, any fool can do a google search. Was is amazing is that you point to it as your knowledge. Perhaps, you can buy some African history books or books about the Great Kings of Africa. You know, like I did. Even more so, buy a few books about the great black kings of Europe.
I suggest that you go to school,period. If you considered a google search as school, then you are in great need of an education.
Trust me, you are way over your head. It was the black Ethiopians who brought language and writings to the world. Plato and Aristotle sat as students to black scholars. Now, what were you saying, bigot?
You are a liar. There is no proof Imohotep was a black Jew. Nor is there any proof of black European Kings. Nor is there proof that Ethiopians brought writing to the world. Your Afrocentric lies have nothing to do with the thread

Don't worry, I expect stupidity from your village. Keep doing what you do best, representing your village as the Village Idiot. I mean this literally, you are a racist due to your non-accomplished living.
Good night. I am sure that you will spend the rest of the night, whining about being exposed as a racist.
You are a racist sir.

<quoted text>Boooots, if is up to you to go back and read the thread contents or not. In any case, I can assure John that your ignorance and lack of worth is not worthy of your delusion. Since, you do not believe that a "prime mover: can be proven by man, then your request is just out of stupidity.
If you have nothing to prove, then shut up, because no one asked you or even cared what you might think. Really, proof of a negative can not be proven? That is just stupid. I can prove that I am not God, and I can also prove that you do not have much in your bank account.
If you can not prove that something does not exist, then the smart position for you would be agnosticism but you choose the dumb road.
What more must we be agnostic about? Hobgoblins, talking Rhinos, genies, Fairies, witches?

Please explain how any religion could be evil? How could religion have human qualities? Do you think that your house is evil? Do you think that math is evil?
Religion is an idea, a way of life. A house is just an object. The fact that you can compare those two shows that you are an idiot.

Actually, what we find throughout history is you gays killing yourselves, other gays and children. Now, you wish to pretend that you gay atheists did not kill Jews and Christians, and enslave blacks, but you did.

<quoted text>Actually, if you cared to go to school, then you would know that Hindus and Buddhists share the same God, and the same as Jews and Christians. It is a matter of perspective and Hindus also have other gods within their religion. Now, would be time for you to learn something, go to school and don't be a fool who acts like a tool. Your closed-minded attempt did not work. Next time seek information before you go on a rant based on your delusions.
Besides, why would I have to prove to you that their gods exist or do not exist, when you do not believe that they do. Sorry, you are the atheist and your claim is that neither the Hindu gods, Buddhist God or Christian God exists. In fact, it is the same God.
Now, get an education and the proof called a life worth living.
Buddhists do not have a god,dummy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_in_Buddhism
Hindus worship anything as a god, a belief that is not consistent with the monotheism of the Abrahamic gods.
