nick altman replied to Kookaburra Jack's discussion My message is that Jesus did not exist but was a 4th century literary fabrication
"Typical covert passive aggressive mind games. Constantly putting Matt on the defensive and keeping him defending himself instead of  the issues. I would predict this style of manipulative arguing probably has served you very well in the past,…"

nick altman replied to Marc Draco's discussion Did humans evolve god? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Not only could everything we do be considered a product of natural selection, socializing and acting within the group being important, but we seem to be wired for looking at things and searching for purpose in them. This is how an animal looks at a…"

nick altman replied to Jennifer W's discussion Do you believe Jesus existed?
"Welcome to the board and the discussion. I don't think you have much to worry about. You seem open to discussion and you're not presenting your opinions as personal revelations. Good to have you."

nick altman replied to Jennifer W's discussion Do you believe Jesus existed?
"Further more, if I was arguing out of rhetoric, I would be claiming my view was the correct view with certainty. Never have I done this. The evidence for Christ is one of deduction, a case of looking at a void and making judgments based on the void.…"

"@ Fred. This seems to be posted on the wrong page. Sorry for the double post. I simply meant "we" as in Matt and myself. If you feel Christ was not based on a real man, make specific points. We can debate those points. How am I spouting…"

nick altman replied to Jennifer W's discussion Do you believe Jesus existed?
"Your point was that there was no evidence, this suggests there is no argument at all outside of the theistic argument. This is simply not true. You're wrong if you think there is no evidence, but you're free to look at the evidence and…"

nick altman replied to Jennifer W's discussion Do you believe Jesus existed?
"A theist makes claims without evidence and refuses to consider the points of others, as you're demonstrating. You can call names all you like, you've yet to make a logical contention. Keep patting yourself on the back I suppose and have…"

nick altman replied to Jennifer W's discussion Do you believe Jesus existed?
"Calm down and stop being so defensive. We're not threatening you at all, there's no need for this "bring it on" response. We are rationalists and enjoy logical discourse, many atheists arriving at their non belief through…"

nick altman replied to Jennifer W's discussion Do you believe Jesus existed?
"Not sure what you meant to say there, but I'll assume you mean there is still no evidence. Either you're ignorant of the evidence we have, or you're just choosing to categorize evidence you don't accept as not being evidence at…"

"There's quite a bit more than "no evidence" actually."

nick altman replied to Diana Agorio's discussion Did this atheist get beat up by an agnostic? NO!
"Well said."

nick altman replied to Jennifer W's discussion Do you believe Jesus existed?
"Looking at Jo's last post in reply to me, if what is being said is clear, is that Jo's issue is just a disagreement with what Matt considers evidence, and not the conclusion Matt has been arguing for. Which seems to not follow some of the…"

nick altman replied to Jennifer W's discussion Do you believe Jesus existed?
"I really have been struggling to keep track of what your points have been getting at precisely, but I've been under the impression you were arguing against the case for a man that the mythological Jesus was based on. It seems others agree with…"

nick altman replied to Jennifer W's discussion Do you believe Jesus existed?
"Just a head's up for Matt and other people interested in discussing this topic, there's an interesting thread on the histrorical Jesus here at the JREF forums, James Randi's forum dedicated to skeptical inquiry ( a forum I am enjoying…"

nick altman replied to Jennifer W's discussion Do you believe Jesus existed?
"I don't think I or Matt or anyone else here has for a second suggested he was anything more than an upstart with a small cult that did not flourish until after his death. He probably did not even suggest he was the son of god, he was nothing…"

Hi mate, there's a thread in the "Sacred Texts" section which I think you might appreciate. Made by a guy called "Kookaburra Jack".

Make sure you don't spill your drink on your keyboard while reading it though ;)

Hi Nick. Welcome to this friendly meeting place where we recognise that all gods are phoney and religions are frauds used to control people;
and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years.
