To me, respecting the core of personal character is more than a courtesy. I for one give that legitimacy without hesitancy.
Kim. Good one ! Nice to see you posting.
The wiki list is only New Testament papyri. The three clear 2nd century fragments are:
I said I don't care who created Christianity in answer to your question as to who did. I never said that I don't care about whether or not the son of the creator of the universe actually set foot on this planet. If it can be demonstrated to be true, I'd be very interested.
Just pointing out how these so-called "poor" people are well off with their flat-screen TVs, 200-channel cable hookups, internet and computer, pets, air conditioning, texting, etc.
Gore would not have seen a "need" to invade Iraq as part of the national response to the Taliban sheltering Bin Laden.
Our infrastructure is actually pretty good. "Crumbling infrastructure" is a leftist code for "more spending" which translates into "more pork."
Josephus wrote decades after the events in question. And (someone who will know the details on this better than me) but there's a specific concern that the Josephus reference to Jesus was an alteration to the original text by Christians.
"In my ideal world, when people call the police on black people for no good reason, they would be taken to a public place and beaten with sticks. By black people."
to most folks not until they see the fiery flames, then it's too late :(
that's more descriptive than prescriptive. the inconsistent spectrum of interpretation among christianity and its sects sometimes make it difficult to establish a baseline for a conversation. pointing that out, with the implied varied interpretation of an infallible text are only a couple of bricks in the wall of issues surrounding the bible and christianity. i think that's what the OP is driving at, in not so few words.
Upvote on that last sentence.
so all trade with Europe is weakening the US in your mind?
Can you cite research that refutes their claims?
That's the intellectually mature thing to do when you don't know an answer. Regurgitating word salad or flinging insults when you get stumped actually makes you look worse than a simple honest "I'm not sure yet, we'll have to see".
ORFU is over there? Say it ain't so.
I find you comment about other men w/name of Jesus, carpenters & religious
Then what's the way it happened? C'mon...gimme the process ...the mechanism.
I think the European countries sent armies to the Middle East to free Jerusalem and drive out the Muslims. That doesn't sound defensive to me.
I think you need some happy pills. Jesus existed much farther back than the early 1800s.
Dating is a minefield.
YES! But no cheating this time! My nipples are not chew toys!
No, it's not. This is a new atheist bad argument for the list.
Why does she owe Monica an apology? I don't recall any trash talk.
how are you
True dat! hehe
Knock off the f* bombs.
I can't understand why the stock market continues to rise when Trump is putting tariffs in effect. I wouldn't invest right now. I'd short in the market.
