A message from a "Friend" of mine
So I posted the video of Rook giving a lecture on Jesus Mythicism on myspace (lol) and I got a ton of people calling me retarded, but I enjoyed this reply the most.
" The Jewish beliefs are based off the old testimont which talks about their coming Saviour. Christianity is from after the Saviour of the Jewish beliefs coming and feeling it's prophecy and dieing on the cross for our sins to be forgiven. Just to clear that up a bit with the constant arguement with the differences of Jews and Chrsitians. Jews just don't accept or believe that Jesus was the prophet or saviour. The 12 disciples most ended up being killed except Paul after Jesus' Death. Now you tell me who is willing to suffer and die for a lie like that?
Historical fact can be denied and looked at or represented as fiction or whatever by anyone. Does this mean someone just wrote the Bible and claimed it as fact? No. Try to show me what is wrong about the Bible.
Myths, Dinosaurs can be easily categorized as myth but will not because of the many fossils left behind and we can see them with our own eyes and feel them. Many people wonder who killed them or what killed them the truth is we killed them as civilation grows the wild life or threat dies off. Do you recall dragons? Why would they make similar looking like myth as to the real dinosaur? Maybe because they fought them before and used the word Dragon to describe them.
Religion, why is it if you read most religions they have a similar link to the Bible? Making tons of counterfeits or altered likeness religions would help create confussion, questions, and more. The thing is to identify the real one which you must see the wrong in each one and the right one wil stand out. Have you been to other cultures and religions talking about a world flood? Did you know there is a lot of proof that there once a giant flood? The world used to be covered with protective Ice which help things grow, humans last longer, etc... Maybe I'll get more into later, but think of the Ice Age as a possibility mistaken for that period or the flood? Looking at a Mammoths who froze not over a period of time but instantly as an instant climate change causing it to freeze while trying to feed itself. Sample of the Ice melting and causing a world flood easily.
Now, I remember you mentioned once before about Religion being the real cause for horror in the world, but is it really? Some religions or cults "who use a altered religion or made up one" have caused some horror, wars, or deaths but why? What is the religion? What is the purpose of the Religion? Nations were created by Religion, Law was created by Religion, Family was the first form of government which was made by religion. How is family created by religion and simple non-human benefits, I'll explain later on.
Now think a real world seeing the whole world as no religion, no beliefs, no god, both without history of religion and removing religion all together as of today. I gurantee you that you will see crimes increase, laws be ignored and changed for the worse, pregnancy and rape will sky rocket, rebellions, murder, riots, suicides, depression, disrespect, disobedence, etc... will happen because it's human nature to want to do it and without guilt which really why would someone have guilt if there is no sin? Try to describe right from wrong and how can it be valid due to no real absolute one being to say it. You couldn't say I raped someone and I'm wrong for it because that wouldn't be valid truth because it's human nature to desire it, right? You couldn't form a government or a stable nation because of it. The benefit of human species? How many people would say screw that and live their own life the way they want to without laws or restrictions because this is all they got before they're gone forever.
Pack hunters favorable arguement but still think about it there still wouldn't be guilt or remorse it just be benefitting ourselves. What about love? No other creature on earth has the emotions of love like we do and why is that, comrade.
Evolution fact or theory?
Evolution is in fact a THEORY! Many people want you to believe that it is a fact, but in reality it's just a theory in scientific defining theory from fact. Nothing has been proven to be actual fact. I don't think scientist are bad guys or anything like that and I think science actually proves more and more that there is a God and people around me assure it to me even you. Look at the Human body and how complicated our body works and why are we the only ones on this earth who can think like us? "Don't try aliens dude lol I said earth and no proof of aliens are there =p"
The Big Bang theory is like looking at Vegas and math. You have only one chance again ONLY ONE CHANCE of it happening and the odds are so highly against it in math. Everything that happened in it is 1 out of billion the big bang happen one of out a billion a planet was created, and keep going on and on and on. The thing is it's like 1/ so many numbers there's not even a number I could put on it. It's just impossible no matter what.
I find hiliarious how sone sciencetist or people try to disprove God by using science vs miracles and bible events. All they can argue on how it may have been done because a God who knows all, created all, and knows the future and every living being to the very blood cell you would automatically think that he would already know that and what needs to be done and how to do it or create it Himself to do it. Just my opinion on that =]
Anyways, if there was no God then why are atheist, etc... are so determined to remove religion? What would be the problem of people living a moral life? I agree some religions are bad but I can't deal absolute removal of them. Just a question I've had for you guys =p"
I don't feel like replying to him, it makes no difference, I have learned that you actually CANNOT pound logic though their "Jesus Box".
We pop theist like Orville Redenbacher!
