I'vs said before, the question have to be on topic.

Whether Jesus existed or not is not the current topic.

Are you sure about that? Can you scientifically study a myth? I don't mean how the myth was formed or transformed, but the contents of the myth when it makes claims that are demonstrably not factual. I mean keeping it on topic. If jesus is a myth, as there's a strong case which could be made for this position. Then a good scientist would move on to a working hypothesis and not keep beating a dead horse with a failed hypothesis. So if you are staying on topic, AND you are of the position that the bible can be studied in a scientific way. Then why haven't you abandoned the bible and moved on to things with factual evidence?

Or is it you simply have no understanding of the scientific method so you don't realize any of this?

And as I've said before, this is not your pulpit. This is not your podium to teach, preach and spread your bullshit.

This is a forum for DISCUSSION.
If you choose to teach, preach, etc. You will be called on it.
If you express opinions, beliefs and viewpoints, they will be questioned.
You may be challenged to defend them.

If you choose to ignore the challenges, you and your statements will be dismissed as irrelevant, unimportant and insignificant.

SO.....

You cited biblical passages.

I questioned your knowledge of the bible.

This is not off-topic. If you do not understand the bible, then your citation of it is likely incorrect.


So I ask you again, are you going to answer my questions regarding the bible?

And I was not talking about whether or not jesus existed. I was questioning your knowledge of the bible.

Well it's not as though you're an expert on anything.
You have no answers to any questions. You're lucky anyone asks you anything.
You're just another snake-oil peddler.

No it's not. Whether scripture can be studied scientifically is the current topic, and your input to your own thread on that topic has been a big fat fuck-all. Apart from a load of vapidity. You've had multiple chances to post a proposal for how you would apply the scientific method to study of scripture, yet somehow all you've proposed is more touchy feely completely unscientific bullshit.

LOL... Hecrow complaining about something allegedly being off-topic. Is that really the best he can do to avoid answering legitimate questions? Dodgy

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

What, you thought you'd be able to preach and not get challenged? Do you know how many dreary holy joes we get coming through here? Do you know how many make snide references to how they thought it was the "thinking" atheist when it becomes apparent that we're not gonna accept their bullshit at face value? You're not the first, you certainly won't be the last and you indeed have wasted everyone's time, by pretending to want discussion and instead treating this place as a pulpit.

Good riddance. At least you have the wit to realise when you're not succeeding. I do send you my best wishes, not that such vague invocations of higher powers actually do anything, but it's kinda the done thing. I hope your God gives you credit for trying.

We'll love you just the way you are

We don't buy your line of bullshit so it must be that we aren't willing to think? And theists say that we are the arrogant ones.

Still waiting for you to tie any of your claims to something demonstrably true....

There is no evidence for either of them. Facepalm
