Grow up.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Straight from the wiki article.

Yes, and YOUR claim was that it was the "SakyaMUNI Republic":

Both wild conjectures about vague poetic horseshit.


Quote: and the foreshadowing of political phenomenon in the New Testament?

...political phenomenon...? Wha...?


Quote:Do you think that it was a coincidence; that they where bound to get some things right?

They got right that the moon goes around the earth, though they thought the earth was flat. Make enough wild-ass guesses and you are bound to get one right eventually.

1. all religious texts show some inkling of scientific ideas.
2. these ideas are sent to men by The Creator.

Is this what you're saying ? 'Cos even if I give you 1, I don't see how 2 follows.

1- No, some texts do.

2- Yes, the ones that do are sent by God.

This has got to be the weakest attempt at a theistic shell game I've ever seen. You should sell this to Ray Comfort, whom you have now bumped out of first place.

Confronting the idiotics of catholics isn't "ignorant" or "ranting" by any stretch.


Quote:But who are these people, and why do you dismiss that they MAY be messengers of God? Give me some proof that one holy text was written by power hungry clerics.

How stupid are you to try to claim by fiat that anything good in the world comes for your particular fairytale deity, here in a forum for folks who don't believe your superstitions?

Funny, that.

I bet if you meditated beneath a tree for 43 hours until you hallucinate wildly you'd feel differently. Drinking Beverage

Fixed that for ya!

Note the use of the word "feel differently". Feeling is not reasoning. A lesson you haven't learned, which is probably why you are still a theist pandering the worst theist shell game ever devised to an atheist forum.
