Wow, this is great stuff. Thank you.
this is also a great resource
It is always fun to quote the bible to Christians in discussions. ;-)
Another site with some good resources is Talk Reason: arguments against creationism, intelligent design, and....
Offreality, if you look at the original Hebrew or even the LXX Greek of Deuteronomy 22:28-29, you will find "young woman" refers to a girl below marriageable age.
A theist wanted me to read this book but I found this great review instead. Best of all, it's wrote by a christian and really rips it up.
Thanks for the link!
Knowledge of the bible is of little use except to argue with christians who probably havn't read it anyway. It was written by people of their day and later translated and interpreted into an absurd form of English. It is not literary, it has little historical weight and is boring. To think that peasants actually believe it's dictated or transcribed by a supernatural being ! I'm flabbergasted !
I totally agree with you Napoleon! I can't believe that they actually think the bible is for real.
Yes, we can only speculate but I'd say they're being harrassed by ghosts and stalked by the devil and knowing they can't get an exorcism on their medical insurance policy have no choice but turn to almighty god.
cool! Thanks for sharing!
