As I pointed out yesterday, there is as much, if not better evidence for the Salem wites being witches, as the resurrection. You did not answer. Do you plan to ? Are you able to ? You you plan on starting new threads, and running away from questions ? You have not even begun to answer the objections and questions presented to you yesterday. Are you planning on do so ? Or should we just dismiss you as a flake, coming here to feel self important, because you think you have some sort of expertise which apparently you do not ?

How many coureses in Biology have you had ?
How many courses in Evolutionary Biology have you had ?
How much Math have you had ?
How much Physics have you had ?
How many courses in Genetics have you had ?
I'm sorry, but my world of discussion didn't revolve around you in my introduction. If you didn't notice, there was 25 pages and counting of responses. Thus I must have missed your comment. I have a life outside of this forum and so I cannot commit all my time to answering every one of the questions raised in that thread.

I'm studying to become a pastor, not a scientist. I've taken up to pre-calc mathematics, and I took biology, chemistry, and physics in high school.
How many Biblical hermeneutics classes have you taken?
How many Old Testament classes have you taken?
How many New Testament classes have you taken?
How many theology classes have you take?
None of my responses to kings questions had anything to do with those fields you listed, and I have never claimed to be an expert in those areas. If you have a theological or religious question, ask it. If not, go to the other thread I started.

I am in, besides the undergrad program in Physics at CalTech, the Divinity School at Harvard. I will be one of the first openly atheist graduates of the Divinity School, with a PhD in Scripture. Is that good enough for you ? The fact is, sonny, you display such a complete, astounding and embarrasing ignorance of your own field, that I asked your qualifications, just to be sure that I was wasting my time, even talking to you. You are like talking to a Third Grader. You know NOTHING of the origins of Scripture, and Ancient History. I feel sorry for you, and your future congregations. You are an embarrasment to yourself, and your cause. Go get an education, before you set yourself up as an expert. I actually know far more about your religion than you do. That is why we suggested you go look at the other threads, which have discussed this crap before. You did not bother. Good luck. You are making a fool of yourself.

And BTW, as I said to the last guys who asked me how much Hemeneutics I ever took, the answer is NONE. Hopefully, I will never take any of that crap. I did hear of Herman Munster though. Does that count ?

I'm assuming you haven't researched the topic. If you had, you wouldn't have said this.

What I assumed from what you wrote was that you meant the similarities between stories. Maybe you meant something else. Give me more specifics about the topic. It's possible I haven't been introduced to it yet.

The Akkadians predate the Hebrews by 1500 years. The Akkadian stories are adapted from Sumerian stories. In turn, these stories are eerily similar to Genesis stories. In fact, almost every Near Eastern Culture has adapted these stories in their history.

So, how do you reconcile the Hebrews' stories not actually being Hebrew by, at minimum, 1500 years? Moreover, how do you explain other, more ancient cultures having the same stories with slight adaptions?

How do you reconcile that all historical evidence points to the stories in Genesis not being of Hebrew origin?

Nah, got my own.

I'm actually feeding her right now.

But no, I've made my peace with this in my theology. I just want to see how he reconciles it.

Someone should've probably warned TakingReasonOutForATestDrive that you fuck with Fullerene at your own peril. Same goes for Fulton. ... I blame KC. He needs to shepherd the lambs better if he wants to see them grow up to be sheep.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Pfffft, it's a well-known fact that nihilists have impenetrable hides. I went out of my way to warn this community of that before they started breaking their teeth on you.

What you make of the fact that there is not one documented case of God ever healing an amputee or a child with Down's syndrome?
