I want to live in a skyscrapper!

Anyway, if you want anyone to believe the Bible is factual, you'll have to join the forum and lay it out for us.  We are always willing to listen.  Are you strong enough to lay out your factual evidence of the Bible for us all to see?  You could convert tons of atheists, and be a real hero to baby Jesus!

It's hard to take this seriously when the spelling and grammar are atrocious.

Being a Christian, I've made my decision. That decision offers no compromise; therefore, I'm closed to anything else.

My best guess, the writer was sitting in church, gobbling up the God love, and was distracted to the point that they had to text their reply via their smartphone.  Which is not a great endorsement for Nokia, I suppose.  Well, at least for their spell-check!

I suppose that being distracted enough to respond to atheist rhetoric while in church is a good thing?  This reply was probably done while pretending to have hands clasped in prayer, but actually thumb texting secretly, so as to avoid being caught by the preacher in charge, or the nosy neighbors in the pew.

Translation:

Gentlemen and Ladies (And tadpoles),

I am sorry I cannot reply from my other e-mail address. Also, unfortunately for the person who insinuated that I was using a shitty computer earlier, I was actually using a simple, elegant and uber awesome Nokia phone. I am aware that I am writing text-speak in even shorter forms..but I assert that it is ultimately my choice on how I write. You do get the message, do you not?

MEN AND WOMEN OF ATHENS WWGHA, I beg you not to get emotional. If you don't believe in God, yet you've heard of him, then why the emotion? Look, not every man who claims to be a believer is godly. Hell, I think most crimes in the world are committed by those who are baptized. Even I AM A SINNER! I will not sit on my high throne and judge anybody. I am not going to display this attitude of "holier than thou". Besides, I won't get to heaven because of my beliefs, I will get there by the mercy of God. We've ALL sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, according to the Bible. You see, as a believer, when the burden of sin weighs me down, I have someone to run to relieve this burden from me.

And that someone is Jesus Freaking Christ.

I run to Him and He embraces me with his long, strong brown arms and kisses me deeply and passionately while gazing into my eyes as I quiver with breathless excitement forgives me. You ask, how could God create you and burn you? How is that right? You forget one crucial thing my fellows: He sent His only son to die for you so that you won't have to face any time in hell. The Bible is without a doubt true, real and factual. You can't argue against the overwhelming historicity of the Bible. For those of you who can't tap into the spiritual, then how about looking at cold, hard evidence? I mean, the names and places mentioned in the Bible are real, aren't they?

Sigh, once more, I am from Kenya, and here, we face problems just like people from all over the world do. Yet despite the difficulties in life, I LOVE GOD FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART. Even if I BURN in hell for my sins, I will SING of the goodness of God while I burn and rot. I know I will..for I have drunk in His goodness.

If Hindus and Muslims also have miracles, well, good! I can't tell you of their Gods..but I will tell you of MY God and the things he has done for me that are more than moving skyscrapers or growing back amputated limbs!

u cant argue with its historical facts...for those of u who cant tap in the spiritual....its names and places mentiponed therein are real now arent they?

Camels were domesticated about 1000 BC.  The Bible has Abram (Abraham) being paid in livestock including camels for pimping Sarai (Sarah) about 2000 BC.  There is evidence of camel caravan trade from Arabia about 700 BC but the Bible has him sold by his brothers to an Arab camel caravan about 1800 BC.

The historical fact is that the Old Testament was largely written under the auspices of King Josiah and contains anachronisms that fit his era.

Greek mythology:  Theseus fought the Minotaur and was king of Athens.  Athens exists so bull-human hybrids must also.   Helen was Queen of Sparta and the Greeks besieged a city for 10 years with neither of them running out of food.  Sparta exists so the Trojan War must've taken 10 years, not the one year that real long sieges took.  Oedipus killed a monster who asked riddles called the Sphinx and was acclaimed King of Corinth.  Corinth exists so ...  You get the picture.

Greek mythology on the other hand has unidentified places like the land of the Gorgons and the Lotus Eaters.

Ezekiel denounces Gog, the king of Magog.  Neither of these can be identified.

In one book Jesus sends demon(s) into a herd of pigs that commit suicide by jumping off a cliff into a lake.   In one book that is at Gedara (Luke and Mark) or Gerasa (Matthew), cities that are east of the Jordan river and nowhere near any body of water.  Later manuscripts of Matthew (some suspect tampering by Origen) have "of the Gergesenes" which means "of the wanderers".  In any case there are no cliffs at the Sea of Galilee  and it says that Jesus set sail with a commercial ship that took him away from the shore.

At least turn the damn t9 function on. I mean, seriously. Even cheap phones come with t9. You managed to hit the associated buttons at least 5 times to type out and emphasize

LOVE GOD FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART

but you can bother to type out complete words otherwise. I mean, damn.
