Stark Raving Apologetics
In a recent thread, a much respected ex-Admin, wrote "Jesus taught..." Dodgy and I thought to my self, how does he know?

Then it occurred to me... all those years of bible study... group analysis of dodgy texts to try to bend them into something morally acceptable for today's audience.

Consider

Idea

So, here's an idea... we could start a TTA Forum Study Group.

We can meet once per week or whenever and discuss a piece of sacred text.

But which and whose verses should be studied?

Well, Seth, of course, is the figurehead of our Atheistic Religion* so...

Stark Raving must be the son of the almighty creator!

So in the inaugural meeting I have selected from here

And this verse:

Quote:Allowing myself to accept that I don't have to have all the answers,

Naturally, the son of an omniscient being must have all the answers so this must be interpreted thusly, to quote KC, "[Stark] is addressing believers here and not unbelievers. He is teaching them and preparing them for trials which they may encounter..." meaning that he is suggesting to the Atheist flock that they feign humility to avoid making a positive claim to ensure that burden of proof stays with the A-atheists.

Who would like to start?

Yes? You at the back.

What do you believe that

Stark Raving taught... ?

This reminded me of this old legend...



Wandering Jew

"The original legend concerns a Jew who taunted Jesus on the way to the Crucifixion and was then cursed to walk the earth until the Second Coming. The exact nature of the wanderer's indiscretion varies in different versions of the tale, as do aspects of his character; sometimes he is said to be a shoemaker or other tradesman, while sometimes he is the doorman at Pontius Pilate's estate." -Wikipedia

Indeed, he did, brother.

So, what do you make of the theistic claims that this was misogynistic and the counter-claims that he also inferred the feminine version...

... don't be a pussy?

RE: Stark Raving Apologetics
Stark clearly is saying don't be an ovary...

The truth that is unquestionable in the words of the one and mighty Stark was that there is no answer to all questions. Some questions leave us unanswerable after all, that's the only way his omniscient self could accept he doesn't know all the answers.

At no point does he say that he doesn't have all the answers.
He just "allows" himself to accept that he doesn't.

DLJ you have been guilty of interpreting. You need to read it literal otherwise you are just cherry picking or interpreting it into your own flawed opinion.
IMHO if you interpret you might as well throw the whole sacred texts out the window and then you would need to give up on Seth and His son/self Stark Raving.

Seth Bless!
