The govt can make necrophilia, pedophilia or whatever they want "legal". Won't change my position on it. "Filthy".

Mediterranean cultures spread myths/religions through oral histories. why did the Greeks wait hundreds/thousands of years to write down the Illiad and Odyssey? because they were passed down through the oral traditions of that regions

most people in that region didn't read, anyway, so a written text was useless for conversion

myths/religions


Could have left it as myths.

That's my point. Why don't we still believe in Zeus anymore?

Debatable. Nonetheless, there is no question whatsoever the Gospels reflect eyewitness accounts.

If God used men under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit as the bible itself claims about the word, what difference would it make if the men were eye witnesses? If God is dictating, it would only matter if God saw it.

you're not even listening

i don't believe in this stuff, but if we're going to discuss it, we have to presuppose that the christian god is real

if you don't want to do that, fine, but don't try to discuss the transmission of that religion

Jesus was very tolerant to those who were sinners and were genuinely interested in repenting, which means, turning away from sin. He had zero tolerance for sin itself.

What? I don't think you're 100% accurate on this.

I don't see how his concern about their hygiene is a reason for his exile.

To someone who doesn't buy the premise in the first place, this all just falls into the irrational category.

every time we argue, it's usually about 3 or 4 different things which I'm pretty sure we would actually agree on. You argue for the sake of argument which is fun, no doubt. I don't really wish to discuss the transmission of myth, I was just trying to make a different point. If Revelatory here happened to be born in Afghanistan, I'm sure he'd have a different view on religion.

Yes he was tolerant once he realized your repentance and you were willing to turn away from your deviant behavior.

Are you "evolving" on the issue of Pedophilia yet, or are you still stuck in the Stone Age?

so here is a question for you. Let us suppose that god made us. Therefore, under that assumption, god made DNA and RNA, right? So god would know that homosexuality would happen based on the structure of biology (since there are genetic precursors to homosexuality). So, why does god hate something that he created?

Dang Pro, you were doing a great job of cogently defining our position. For a moment, I thought you were coming over to our side!

He's discussing transmission of myth through text. An issue that I wrapped myself into but really don't care about.

First, God doesn't hate homosexuals and its his desire that they repent like every other sinner. Second, God created man perfect, but sin came into the world, and because of sin, the natural order of things was infected and things began to die both physically and spiritually. Homosexuality is a mutation of what man was created to be.

Mark was written 60-70 AD or about 30 yrs after Jesus' began his teachings. Mark and Peter were contemporaries and friends. Mark may or may not have been an "eyewitness." Peter certainly was. Peter died at the time or just after Mark was written. John may or may not be the direct creation of John the Apostle, but again it is most certainly based on his materials, his memories, and his reflections.
