The arguments haven't been answered. You claiming that they have been and refusing to acknowledge the fallacies inherent in your "rebuttals" does not change this.

Like your dinosaur bit?

I've never used the "deaths by religion" bit as an argument against the existence of a god, as it has absolutely no bearing on the subject.

Quote:Think of a subject or game or product you know really well, and think about a time when someone commented on that product, and you know they have never used it by what they say. That is what I feel on this site, based on the questions, there is very little knowledge of the other side.

Really? Many of us used to be religious, you know. But again, it's beside the point, because even if we have never been religious ourselves, your arguments are still flawed.

Oh, hey, my hostility detector just went off again. Must be malfunctioning - ashley's right. There's nothing but kittens and rainbows here.

You always bring up the dinosaurs what exactly do you mean?

RE: Athiests are the ultimate meme
I mean that it is quite hypocritical of you to accuse us of not knowing anything about the Bible after you yourself have been proven to get things wrong very frequently. The dinosaurs isn't your only failure, either; your claim that the Bible contains passages declaring the Earth to be a sphere, for example, and your incredibly erroneous apologetics for the passages when it was revealed that they didn't say what you thought they did.

1. "I mean that it is quite hypocritical of you to accuse us of not knowing anything about the Bible after you yourself have been proven to get things wrong very frequently."

2. "your claim that the Bible contains passages declaring the Earth to be a sphere" The Bible says "Circle of the earth" the word sphere did not come into existence until 1250. Of course you knew that.

3."and your incredibly erroneous apologetics for the passages when it was revealed that they didn't say what you thought they did."

Fine. But this is the last time that I'm going to dig up links for you. I am tired of having to rehash the same points over and over in every single thread, when we have established many times previously that everything I said is true.

1. You claimed that the Bible says that dinosaurs existed (it doesn't) and that the Earth is round (ditto).

2. I already went over this. The Hebrew language did indeed have a word in use for "sphere". The word the Bible used to describe the Earth, however, was their word for circular like a coin, not like a sphere. See this post.

3. Your constant maintaining, even in the post that I quoted in this one, that the Bible does say all these things is exactly what I am talking about.

Now stop pretending that you don't know what I'm talking about.

RE: Athiests are the ultimate meme
Unbeliever is correct.. The Hebrews had a word for sphere and it was used in another passage in the bible... yet not to describe the shape of the earth.. Its too late and I am too tiered of apologetics to go look for it.. but I remember reading it not too long ago.
