The Christian Atheist debate

snort** Don't tell him you got copper scrolls to back up that logic. Wait until the last moment before whipping those out. It'll be a hoot. Trust me.  (Yesterday | post #53524)

Well, at least one troll surely has a terrible memory: The deposition was part of the Judicial Watch litigation, not the FBI investigation. Speaking of your bad memory, you ever figure out where you left those copper scrolls from James about Jesus? 'Tard.  (Thursday Jun 9 | post #45826)

So they went to an illiterate's school to learn advanced foreign language exposition, troll? Got it. Translation: It was magic.  (Friday Jun 3 | post #43470)

Well, ya got a problem there, troll. Scribes do not create sophisticated Greek texts from the musings of illiterate Aramaic speakers -- texts that sometimes rely on other Greek texts, such as the Septuagint, and sometimes employ sophisticated writing techniques, such as the motifs, irony, allusions, and symbolism in the 4th gospel. Well, not unless it is primarily the scribe's efforts rather than the oral musings of the illiterate that are at play, in which case you don't have a text from the illiterate but rather from the scribe. Care for more pasta? Oooo. And give the marinara sauce a try.  (Friday Jun 3 | post #43456)

You got a couple problems there, Marcus. First, the quote, "He opened the book to where it read" does not come from any published translation of Luke 4:16 familiar to me. **Snort** @ "to where". Second, such a quote is not supported by the Greek in Luke 4:16: kai aneste anagnonai. Translation: "and stood up to read". Did the scroll really stand up to read? Third, troll, assuming Jesus' brother wrote the Greek text ascribed to him in your canon, he was well educated and could write eloquently in not only his native language but in Greek. But according to you, Jesus was barely literate. 'Sup wif dat? James got a classical education but Jesus was barely literate? Apparently Joseph and Mary loved James more than Jesus, huh? Were James and Jesus the sons of a tradesman, a carpenter by tradition, they likely could neither read nor write. Nor were the supposed fishermen, Peter and John, described as illiterate in Acts 4, able to read or write either. Yet Jesus is portrayed as reading and writing in the gospels and the other three have a total of eight texts forged in their names or falsely ascribed to them in your silly canon. You need a better religion. You ever give thought to Pastafarianism? It's just as silly as Christianity, but the spaghetti dinners are fantastic.  (Friday Jun 3 | post #43257)

And yet GoLuke has him reading in a synagogue and GoJohn has him writing on the ground. You never went to Bible school, did you, Marcus?  (Friday Jun 3 | post #43148)

I believe Water Nymph and Matt from Akron both left the Christian faith at least in part as a consequence of Topix.  (Apr 30, 2016 | post #1030889)
