Based on 2000 years of emperical historical evidence I'll stick with my conclusion that he aint out there and he aint coming back.

They are false prophets.

Did they not read their own book?

It says clearly, that "no one" knows the time or date. He will come like "a thief in the night".

Since people keep expecting it, it won't happen.

I am just saying, logic dictates they are almost certainly wrong.

What historical evidence?

I am not religious or anything so I won't cry or anything, lol.

I am just interested what "evidence" you have, other than your personal subjective opinion?

I would love to show this evidence to people, as it would be useful in ending pointless debates in a hasty manner.

However I have a deep feeling that is merely your opinion, and you actually have no concrete evidence to support your claim other than a logical fallacy.

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

But from the way you talk, the mere fact Jesus has been absent for 2000 years is "evidence he doesn't exist".
It's a logical fallacy and does not add up.

I just don't see me winning any debates by saying "Jesus isn't coming back because Anglodemonicmatrix on ATS said that there is 2000years of evidence he won't come back". That won't win any debates at all...

Oh so absence of evidence is evidence of absence?

You are truly pushing these logical fallacies hard core.

Anyways, ever heard of Flavius Josephus?

It wouldn't matter anyway, since he did mention Jesus you would automatically start digging for anything to discredit him right?

Do you realize you are blindly zealous EXACTLY like the Christians you despise?

As far as I am concerned, there is nothing different from your belief system and their religion. It's all faith based.
You believe what you wanna believe.

But you failed to provide evidence, as expected.
Good work debunking yourself.

What is an "Argument from Ignorance" , and why is it used in debates??



Argument from ignorance, also known as argumentum ad ignorantiam or appeal to ignorance, is an informal logical fallacy. It asserts that a proposition is necessarily true because it has not been proven false (or vice versa). This represents a type of false dichotomy in that it excludes a third option: there is insufficient investigation and the proposition has not yet been proven to be either true or false.[1] In debates, appeals to ignorance are sometimes used to shift the burden of proof.



Carl Sagan famously criticized the practice by referring to it as "impatience with ambiguity", pointing out that "absence of evidence is not evidence of absence". This should not, however, be taken to mean that one can never possess evidence that something does not exist.


So lets see here. Carl Sagan's wonderful explanation of why you are committing a logical fallacy, vs your assertions that you know what you are talking about.

I am going to have to side with Carl Sagan here. Your debate tactics failed.

Well do some study the church kind of admits they 'doctored' Josephus,there were about thirty other Roman historians at the time and not one mentions a J Christ yet they discuss Apollonius of Alexandria,Simon Magus and other leading middle eastern religious figures,no I dont hate Christians I feel sorry for them they are a part of one of the worst false archon realities out there.

Hi Guy's,

I have read this story on multiple websites but doesn't the bible say that the Jewish temple will be built before the return of Jesus?

Also, just another thought, The bible states that "NO MAN KNOWS THE DAY OR THE HOUR" but did he ever mention the YEAR?

Im not sure if he will return in 2011 but when i see articles like that it makes me wonder.

Really?

...
Dude...If all it takes is a story talking about a hero = might be true...then by your standards, Gandalf the white wizard may exist equally...because after all, it is in a book, and equal evidence exists

I might start a church and demand tax exempt status..."Gandalfian...of course, it may split over time into gray and white...and no doubt opposing religions will spring up (damn gollamaterians)
Proof of existance is sort of important, else we will simply believe anything.

megabyte,

This is something all we Christians who know His Word have been expecting and it does tell us much but not the time. We read,

1Jo 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
Mt 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

This must happen first,

Mt 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

This is about to happen as I find the 144,000 His Servants are probably ready to make the last call, the story in Rev.chapter 11. These things like these false prophets let you know though the time is near. We are now having a great falling away and people becoming non believers and this is also predicted.

2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Nothing surprises me anymore.

Truthiron.

the page link is not available...so i can't determine if the Christian organization is predicting the 2nd coming or they are implanting the 'seed' of thought into the population of Atlanta as an experiment.

for all i know there have been thousands of Mexican illegals that migrated to Atlanta already
and any number of them may have been born or baptised or even chosen the confirmation name :
Jesus = 'Hey- zeus'

I heard about this on the radio this morning. Supposedly there are going to be 50 of these billboards throughout the metro Atlanta area. I'm sure it will get a lot of attention and ridicule. It has already gotten radio play. Some people may call these people who made this prediction and the ones who support it, "false prophets", and I would certainly be one of them. It is pretty bold of this group to make such a prediction and plaster it throughout the states on billboards and such. When he doesn't come, I wonder what they will do then? Do we have any background on this group and it's leaders?

... Jesus is coming on May 21, 2011, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Well, that Jesus dude better arrive with a valid passport and an approved visitor visa, otherwise his followers would be forced to obey their righteous man-made laws and deport his ass .. you know ,, so not so seem like a bunch of hypocrites, ha. I doubt he would be approved for a work visa, what with the economy the way it is and so many unemployed wanna-be saviors of humanity out of work.

Hey, maybe he can sneak in and become an illegal Jesus, lol. We could use a bunch of them right now, especially if they can really do hocus pocus for us and fix all our woes.
I can see it now, everyone signing up for a class action lawsuit against the poor dude too ... for breach of promise(s) and surely for many obvious lapses of fiduciary responsibilities.

Oh, and we better have homeland security run a thorough background check on the guy too, what with so many impostor saviors these days. Better yet, make him prove it and do one of those cool magic tricks I've heard saviors can do.

Wow, another real Jesus coming to Earth .. again. Really? How lucky is that (I would have thought he wouldn't want to come back here again after his last visit to Earth). Now, don't muck it up THIS TIME and whack him before he gets a chance to fulfill everyone's prayer request this time. Gee, I think I'm going to ask him to make ME a chosen one this time. Imagine that, ME, a chosen one this time .. why that would be a dream come true (lol). It's my turn to be chosen and special this time. !!! Go JESUS !!

I agree with this ^^^

It's as fake as 2012 becoming the end of the world.
