    Jesus existance?

    You mean 60-80 CE. Embellishment easily can take place, especially when there is a giant telephone game going on. SO tell me, why did Paul not mention once Jesus's miracles, the virgin birth, the death, the resurrection, or even that Jesus was a physical man? And not once did a Jewish scholar, not once even when it was their vested interested to write about messiah cult figures, mentions Jesus. Roman records that would have mentioned a trouble making Jewish rabbi do not exist either. I could understand that we lost some, but every single one? Every shred of eyewitness information? Also, in the far reaches of the Roman Empire, Christians practiced quite openly and freely, and more than a few Roman soldiers were in on it. I'd like to point out that Luke is in the Gospels via Paul, who never physically knew Jesus and who never outright wrote about Christ as an actual person. The gospels also have very different tones, information, etc as seen in that video.

    Jesus existance?

    Which is a very long time considering life back then. And there were contemporaries who could have written about him (considering he did some shocking things) but they didn't. They didn't even mention his name in passing. Considering that you posted the OP with a video that you insist people watch in its entirety, I certainly don't get the impression that you really watched it at all where that guy explained contemporaries who would have written about him who didn't, and why the time period until the gospels were written is significant, and the sharp contrast to Paul's letters. I am a Christian in the original, historical sense. I have studied the time of Jesus and the stories his descended from, in addition to the astrological origins.

    Perhaps Soda should try going back to the roots of Christianity and Judaism; everything as an allegory for the sun God, precession of the equinoxes, blah blah. To ignore the issues that we have with the gospels, historically, then to essentially slap one in the face (and break the rules) by calling one who understands these issues unchristian is a little ridiculous. It isn't until long after the time of Jesus that we got the Gospels, it's silly to deny that there could be embellishment. I actually find the resurrection story as a symbol of the solar calender quite an interesting idea, myself.

    If that's what you got from that video I somehow doubt you watched it. My atheist friend loved it for, and I quote, "Destroying" Christianity.

    19 Kids and Counting

    It is pretty bad when, if the older daughters go away, the parents cannot parent or even control their own children.

    I imagine my wonders about you far exceed your wonders about me

    They are actually IFSB and followers of Lord Gothard. I suggest you study up on Gothard's teaching a bit more before you make that determination. They wholly believe that they are better than us "heathens". The main objective behind having so many kids is to essentially take over the government or some strange nonsense. Basically outbreed the "bad" guys.

    Why I believe Osama's not dead!

    When your crew say you deaded, you most likely are deaded. I fixed this, yet the meaning remains hidden to me.

    Sure... When I'm wrong I do.

    Here we go again having to explain science terminology again. In science, Evidence is information, such as facts, coupled with principles of inference (the act or process of deriving a conclusion), that make information relevant to the support or negation of a hypothesis. Scientific evidence is evidence where the dependence of the evidence on principles of inference is not conceded, enabling others to examine the background beliefs or assumptions employed to determine if facts are relevant to the support of or falsification of a hypothesis. Fact does not equate with reality, per say. A more accurate definition is a provable concept. Another good definition is where it can refer to verified information about past or present circumstances or events which are presented as objective reality. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_evidence And you are capable of going back starting a couple pages ago and reading through. You should have done it the first time.

    This can't be normal

    The majority of studies show that spanking is ineffective overall, and any traces of effectiveness cut off at about age 5. Your parents need to realize that you are not 5 anymore and need to adapt their parenting style.

    Unfaith

    Can I assume that by unfaith you mean atheistic agnosticism?

    ...Kek. Have the evidence, establish fact. The two go hand in hand. I'd like you find me one instance of evidence not contributing to deciding what fact it. Then you surely recall the definition, link, and two videos that I have provided. Unless you were busy playing the proverbial ostrich.

    No,you sir are missing the point. By interpreting the evidence we get facts. Facts are something you have a hard time with. You seem to keep mixing them up with scientific theories, which you keep mixing up with the lay definition of theory. So fas far as missing points goes you are a clear winner. Unfortunately I cannot say the same about you and your clear ignorance about that there little word. It does have a large bearing on the debate because if you don't understand it you will create that rabbit hole that those of us knowledgeable on the subject will have to shove you down because we cannot progress with ignorance. Now, I'd like you to admit that for the last 4 pages or so you have been very wrong about your understanding of theories as it applies to science.

    Fixed that for you. We do not need to be physically present for something in order to interpret the evidence You stopped arguing because you didn't like that you were misusing the word theory
