It seems you missed the point.
I could say the same thing. You and your ally have repeatedly dodged the tougher questions and continued to give multiple explanations of the same
answer for a trivilous part of the discussion..
I would say a discussion is an over statement at this point.
Odd, you complimented me earlier for my answers.
that is because you seemed sincere in your providing information for what you believe and that helped me understand where you were coming from in some
degree....since then there has ben a lack of feedback and value to some of your "answers"
I suppose for a devout christian as yourself. questions are ok as long as they are questions that can easily be explained by YOUR understanding of
and even if you do answer them and give accurate evidence supporting the claims of your belief..you what? think there are NO more questions to be
answered?....and therefore nothiing is left to be understood? funny how YOUR logic works.
It's a damned if we do, damned if we don't situation. If we answer you, 'we're threatened.' If we don't answer you, then it is assumed we don't
know. You used the very same logical fallacy in this thread. When you got answers, you implied it was because we were scared our beliefs were wrong so
we are compelled to defend them. If we do not answer you, then it must be because we do not know.
how again are you threatened?
if you do not answer..yes..i suppose it is assumed that you do not know. why else would you not answer? and are you implying that you know everything
there is to know on this subject? if this is the case then why are you not teaching at a major institution?
i suppose i have to say this ONE MORE TIME.
...if you are making the claims in a public forum (just as in the ufo forum, or the 9/11 forum or
any conspiracy forum) then it is you that must provide evidence and answer the questions. if there are some questions too 'dumb' for you then say
it. and explain why they are too 'dumb.'
but i can tell you even with some of the things you have commented on and answered, it is not nearly enough to support the claims being made by the
bible. and until someone comes up with some sort of substantial evidence that abraham had a REAL personal relationship with god and GOD made the
Jews the 'chosen' people then the rest of the bible will always fall in the category of hyperbolem with a focused agenda....(maybe the ten
commandments or the arc of the covenant or noah ark..could help the cause of providing substantial evidence...anything would help really)
..christianity will be considered just anothr religion where the wool is pulled over so many eyes..and seemingly including your own.
Actually, many of your questions have been answered.
actually a few. yes.
answer these (if you can) and you can say "many"...
so god chose abraham and his "people/descendants" (even though semite jews are not a race) as the chosen people. well how did the person who wrote
this know? how did he know what people were believing in the Americas (because there is plenty of evidence there was man in the americas 6,000 b.c)?
how did he know what people were worshipping in asia and africa?...these places (more than likely) were not even known by ancient man...so why was it
that abraham was chosen and not some ancient pre-recorded history indian or african?
the answer given to these questions were pointless and offered nothing.
these are main questions that have a huge impact on the christianity belief system that can't be answered..
a simple "i don't know. i believe this because 'god' says the bible is 100% accurate " would suffice and make sense coming from a fundamentalist
such as yourself.
Do you think you would be Christian if you grew up in the middle east as as an arab, read the koran and had all your family who were devout muslims
around? Or do you thnk you would be Muslim?
interesting this one was ignored..is this an unreasonable question?
there were others, but i don't feel like going back and trying to quote them. they won't get a response anyway.
anyway, my qualms with the bible do not stem much from the new testament..but most definitely from the old. and of course if the old testament is
wrong, then that nullifies much of the new testament. and i think the message the Jesus in the bible gives is a spectacular one...but that doesn't
make it divine. and it doesn't make him the 'son of god.'
I wouldn't say you as a person but your lack of logic, yes
i suppose a logic, not tweaked by a 'holey' faith, would do that to some people
