I'm not going to be able to quote people properly (with references) because some of the quotes are from earlier pages. Sorry about that.
Pretending something is impossible unless god did it doesn't impress me much. Scientists are gradually whittling down the unknowns in physics and as of yet they haven't found any indication of something so fantastic it has to be called god. Unless you can show me your sources, I'm going to have to just flat say you are wrong.
My argument is not a "god did it" argument, and I hate it when atheists claim this is the argument Christians are using, because those who don't believe in God use the "we don't understand it" argument. There is a reason Scientists don't fully understand the Big Bang. That's because it breaks so many laws of science it's impossible to understand on a deep level because it's not even possible that it could happen due to all the scientific laws we now know, which it breaks. And you say they haven't found any indication of something so fantastic it has to be called god. What about the show Through the Wormhole? In an interview Morgan Freeman stated that some scientists are at the point where they don't know what could be responsible for certain things other than God.
And anally violating a baby is no worse than, again, CUTTING PIECES OFF OF IT'S GENITALS. It's the exact same level of sick.
No it's not. Circumcision can have health and cleanliness advantages. It's commonly practiced, because it's not that weird. Anally violating a baby has no benefits and it's really really weird. I can't even believe you made that comparison. Why is circumcision an option at hospitals? And raping the baby isn't?
how bout addressing some of my questions like why god had siblings?
Jesus had siblings because he was God in an earthly form. He was fully God but also fully human. And a lot of humans have siblings. I don't see why this is an issue?
And wasn't Yahweh married at one point? lol
Were Pliny's letters to Trajan referring to the apostles? Were they referring to xtians denying the resurrection? No. So yes, please find more sources.
Actually, yes, they were. http://www9.georgetown.edu/faculty/jod/texts/pliny.html
You have not offered scientific evidence for god. You have made a false statement (the same "more and more scientists BS) followed by a complete misrepresentation of the big bang and the laws of thermodynamics, and finishing with an argument from incredulity. Not scientific evidence.
Tell me where I'm wrong. You asserting that I don't understand something with no explanation of why it's wrong is not even a valid point.
And this whole nonsense of how xtianity is the only religion where you get to heaven by grace is not true. The same concepts exist in Hinduism and Islam to name two. And many religions throughout mankinds history did not have a heaven and hell.
Which I said some believe in works to reach enlightenment. Hindus believe in works in order to be reincarnated into different people or things, not grace. Islam does not believe in grace either. I'm not sure why you would claim either of these did.
Why does Jewish messianic prophecy and eschatology have absolutely nothing to do with Christianity?
It has everything to do with Christianity. All of those quotes were completed with the coming of Christ, either in a physical or symbolic way.
You operate under the assumption that Jesus existed. Yet a character that never existed can't have a body either. You first have to establish that the story of Jesus in the NT is real.
You obviously haven't done your research. Why did a HUGE movement of the spread of Christianity start if Jesus didn't even exist? You could know Jesus was real without any sources but I'll give you some anyway.
"Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in Judaea, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome, where all things hideous and shameful from every part of the world find their centre and become popular. Accordingly, an arrest was first made of all who pleaded guilty; then, upon their information, an immense multitude was convicted, not so much of the crime of firing the city, as of hatred against mankind. Mockery of every sort was added to their deaths. Covered with the skins of beasts, they were torn by dogs and perished, or were nailed to crosses, or were doomed to the flames and burnt, to serve as a nightly illumination, when daylight had expired. Nero offered his gardens for the spectacle, and was exhibiting a show in the circus, while he mingled with the people in the dress of a charioteer or stood aloft on a car." -Cornelius Tacitus
"At this time there was a wise man who was called Jesus. And his conduct was good and he was known to be virtuous. And many people from among the Jews and other nations became his disciples. Pilate condemned him to be crucified and to die. And those who had become his disciples did not abandon his discipleship. They reported that he had appeared to them three days after his crucifixion and that he was alive; accordingly, he was perhaps the messiah concerning whom the prophets have recounted wonders." -Flavius Josephus
"Festus was now dead, and Albinus was but upon the road; so he assembled the sanhedrim of judges, and brought before them the brother of Jesus, who was called Christ, whose name was James, and some others" -Flavius Josephus
Anyways, you’re also forgetting the fact that scientists and cosmologists largely agree that at this singularity and moments after the big bang, that physics as we know it was probably very different and did break most laws if not all currently known laws. Also agreed upon and breaking the rule is that the universe expanded faster than the speed of light at the very early stage.
Cool, obviously I don't agree with them. Tell me how it's possible that the Big Bang was able to break all of our current scientific laws but nothing else can.
JT.. you have a lot on your plate right now, here, and from the sound of it, not much time to answer. Might I recommend the advice that you might ask for some time to deal with all of this? It is, admittedly, a bit 'one against a hundred,' so if you really want to keep at this, don't be afraid to ask for some breathing room. (Now, if you'll actually take such advice as offered to many others who (unfortunately) haven't is up to you.)
I appreciate that. It would be nice if the bigger questions/concerns were given here. It's hard to answer everything when small & big questions alike are being asked.
The moderators have asked that we stop posting new questions, and I will honor that. When you get time, please post a response to me here. What you have said above is not correct.
Ok, you're good to go now
