I find it interesting that they would call atheists zombies.

Wait, you're not zombies? Hold on, I'm confused.

JDog554 was showing me a thread where someone claimed all atheists were zombies. It was interesting.

Not unless Zombies can type and understand words now.

I disagree. While alla used an aggressive stance, he/she was just asking a question. I notice that my wife gets really angry when I talk about something she doesn't think is in the bible and then prove it is in there. It is when I make her question her faith that she loses it. Could it be that alla is correct?

I answered her question and I told her that I was closing the conversation. She didn't like that so she poked at me a few times.

I must have missed your answer. I will go back and read.

Well, anyway, the Bible definitely has its errors and questionable content.

Wait wait wait. How can that be if it is the inerrant, inspired word of the one true god?

No. It could be -- in fact is -- that Alla has no way of knowing who is a "prophet" and who isn't, and supposing that there were/are such things as prophets, she has no way of knowing what they were claiming thousands of years ago. As someone else already pointed out, not everything they said was written down. So she is blowing smoke. She is claiming to have absolute knowledge of something about which she could not possibly have absolute knowledge (or any knowledge at all).

Just remember that "feels" count as "fact" when it comes to theists. It must be true if they feel that way about it.
Even more so, the "feels" also trump established fact, or provide an answer to the unanswerable.
