He's attempting to argue from his own authority. Not only is this fallacious and stunningly arrogant, but his authority is laughable.

The post you made from John Shelby Spong is a great example of what an authority looks like. Spong accepts there are REAL problems in the bible and accepts them as real problems, he's made brilliant observations in how Christians should resolve these problems.

Someone like Q uses hermeneutics, an intellectual con game to attempt to deny and sweep away problems in the bible under the rug. This is what an intellectual charlatan does, not someone who is a serious thinker.

What Spong has to say about Paul is on the mark, he seemed to be a tormented individual that wouldn't reveal what his "thorn in the flesh" was, yet he authored the Christian religion.

I don't think it's any coincidence that there are so many repressed homosexuals that are a part of this religion, Paul's religion is a story of denying yourself and subverting who you really are, the things he writes are constantly referring to this concept.

The fruit of Paul's teachings result in a Christian culture filled with Ted Haggards and Jimmy Swaggarts.

Don't worry about that, Mark. I don't like fiction, either.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

The above is IMO totally on the money. Very well done.

BTW, where is Q? Has he scurried off to hide?

He has gone back to the hive to rest. And feed.

Apparently Q fed and rested.

Mark should show him this.

RE: Commentary on Q and Mark
He's apparently having fantasies:

Quote:I want to debate you in an academic setting at a secular university, where both faculty can challenge your ill-conceived understandings of classic scholarship and Bible history and where students will note by boos and hisses when you lose control and make ad homs and vicious denunciations of my intellect.

I suppose he wants to be in an environment surrounded by other people on his side, that will roundly reject anything but his biased world view.

He's such a whiny little bitch, I just hope he eventually gets a clue and realizes that he will get no respect on this forum.

Condescension while being willfully ignorant will not get him very far around here.

He's trying to back out without admitting he doesn't have a response to the voluminous information you presented.

He certainly doesn't want to consider Paul is anything but a saint, but he's going to have to take it seriously to give a reasonable response - he can't do that, he's far too biased and egotistical.

All he can do is huff and puff and keep saying he's a "scholar".

I think you've showed that Paul was a charlatan and Q is a charlatan, it must be painful for him to be dragged along on this journey of self discovery. Laugh out load

This one made my day. Holy ignorance batman. How could he say that none of the 40+ questions were on topic when they all either asked the question directly or could be used to support or refute the argument. Incredible. Just incredible what religion can do to a mind. I wonder how sharp he could be if he just got rid of that yoke.
