I like it when I make you feel warm and tingly inside.

A logical and thinking person would understand that in this context, you should be rather disappointed in yourself and your lack of insight, self-reflection, and critical thinking skills. But a person preaching their religion, might be amused by their trolling.

Yes, you're the pinnacle of self-reflection, and introspective thinking. If only we can all grow up to be more like you.

RE: About the Testimonium Flavium
My Josepheus collection book which is cool as its from the 1800s though partially held in tight with tape. I found it at a resale book shop, but it actually has a sheet bookmark for the page where that line is at.

Interestingly for whatever reason the publisher added a sketch of Bethlehem complimenting that page.

Like you, claiming to know what he did, because he didn't talk about it ?

The fact is, he, a JEW, had a huge influence on early Christianity. I can't help but wonder, if all this bullshit is just an attempt to evade THAT.

Compared to you, it's true. To be fair though, so is a potato compared to you.

You mean like the posters who claim to know that he was in Jerusalem at the time of Christ's life, around the time of his death, like the person who claim he visited Jerusalem frequently, only to have to walk that claim back?

I merely stated these claims are lies, concocted whole cloth., lacking any support.

I'll go ahead and agree with you, that Philo had a significant influence on Christianity.
Did I evade it this time too?

Some butthurt atheists on the internet called me an idiot, I guess I'll cry myself to sleep tonight.
