A few of you have remarked on the part about the sumerian kings and how it said tens of thousands of years. Of course people have not lived that long. That sentence doesn't say they do, it says the the Sumerian list of kings says that those kings lived that long. Obviously showing myths of the Sumerians.
just like the myths in your book. Oooh, Adam lived to be 900! Isn’t that special
And velkyn...You should really stop looking to the biased evolutionists websites and get your information unbiasedly. The book I quoted from was written by an athiest who went out to disprove God and Jesus and the Bible and he actually went out into other countries and everything to find the answer and he did find an answer.
Hilarious. I do love to see a Christian make the claim that their book was by an “atheist” as if that would make me believe in claims with no evidence. So much for your claims of being unbiased. Let’s see, [wiki]Norman Geisler[/wiki]. Don’t see anywhere he claims to have been an atheist. I do see where he’s another OneTrueChristian who forms his own religion when others don’t agree with him. Now, Josh McDowell, well, he claims to have been an agnostic. Maybe he was, but that doesn’t’ mean that any of his claims about what he supposed “found” have any evidence to support them. Jake, if you think there is evidence that supports McDowell’s claims, show it. I’ve read McDowell’s books and I know what they say. He did not find any evidence at all. “Evidence for Christianity” is a regurgitation of his former books (always nice to get people to buy the same stuff more than once). McDowell has claimed that Christianity was “unique” and that made it historical, which is hysterical and shows he is ignorant about other religions. He has claimed that the only answers to the bible are “lord, liar or lunatic”, and he so cutely forgets “legend” aka myth, aka just a story. He uses sources that have been shown to be forgeries, Josephus; he tries to claim that rabbinal works mention JC but they only say a man practicing sorcery was hanged, nothing about a messiah or a cruxifiction. He tries to laim that any mention of a Christian is evidence that JC existed, which would mean that any mention of any worshipper of any god would mean that particular god exists. Do they, Jake? Since we have temples and worshipers of other gods, are they as good as yours?
Christianity is not a blind faith but one rooted in historical fact.
repeating a lie doesn’t make it true, Jake. Sorry.
I charge you to actually look to the Christian side of things before you continue slamming Christianity.
I was a Christian so I know exactly what Christians claim, all sorts of sects of them.
After all what is it morally that Christians stand for...good things, not bad things.
Hmm, and we have right now Christians on the forum who say it is perfectly fine to kill children, to commit genocide, to ask for the deaths of homosexuals, to kill non-believers, etc. I don’t find those good things at all, Jake. Do you? Pity if you do.
You have no idea how much it saddens me that you continue to be in such unbelief, I'm sorry, I tried to tell you the truth but even if I gave you all the evidence that would prove God and Jesus and the Bible you would still not believe.
I think all that makes you sad is that you aren’t blindly believed and you’ve gotten no external validation from the forum. You have not even tried to tell the truth. You have tried to make baseless claims and expect others to believe them when they know they are not true. I have facts, Jake, you have stories. And I do love the usual whining excuse by a Christian, that atheists wouldn’t’ believe no matter what. That’s a lie, Jake, an utter outright lie on your part to salve your feelings. Your god hates lies, false witnessing, and liars, Jake, even if they think they are doing the right thing by lying *for* this god (Romans 3).
Because its not a matter of you can't believe its a matter of you won't believe. Because then you will be accountable for what you do. And you can't have that, so you deny.
Aw, and some threats and more lies about how atheists are only wanting to rebel against your imaginary friend. It’s very telling, Jake, that you obviously ignored my entire post to show your myths are just that myths. You have no answer to the question of how your nonsensical myths are any more “realistic” than others. It’s a shame that you think you can do this and not be called the willfully ignorant man that you are. Sticking your head in the sand and claiming something doesn’t exist doesn’t make it go away. Christians have no agreement on when the “flood” happened. There is no evidence for this flood at all. The lies told about how “all” cultures have flood myths are easily shown. It’s not suprising that all you have left are more lies and personal attacks.
