Re: Wackaloons Dictating Society

Actually, you've got that turned around. Most modern Satanists would hardly endorse the rape and murder of virgins, whereas there's quite a few Muslims who would approve of killing virgins they felt were in any way promiscuous, and that includes being raped. I doubt this Muslim chaplain is advocati...

Re: Wackaloons Dictating Society

Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Scientology, atheism and every other religion that fails to worship the God of the Bible leads a person to Hell where Satan will spend eternity. Satan doesn't care if people are involved in every religion on earth as long as they avoid Jesus Christ. Satan is the driving f...

Re: Wackaloons Dictating Society

Here's what I believe...if the majority of the population in a particular region want their religious beliefs taught in school, then that's fine by me. ....What I don't want to see is outside groups stepping in to dictate what can and cannot be taught in certain school districts. As long as people ...

Re: What were the earliest mentions of Christianity?

Perhaps an heretical church father? Both Origen and Josephus lived inside of a day's walk from Nazareth if it existed. Josephus lived about a mile from it and could have seen it from where he lived, but both never mentioned it. Don't you think that is strange? Well I would say you can't be both a C...

Re: What were the earliest mentions of Christianity?

Yes, that reminds me of that discussion that I had on the old forum with Tim O'Neill. We thrashed it out for about 5 weeks without resolving anything between us. It did make me do more researching before I opened my trap, though. I did have a go on one called The Raving Atheists. They just attacked...

I've got a new question for you Moon. Do you think that Josephus or the Church Father Origen knew of Nazareth?
I am just not qualified to answer that. Origen is not a Church Father by the way. He was a very distinguished writer but not one of the Fathers.

Re: What were the earliest mentions of Christianity?

Ok thanks. Have you been involved with any other forums? No. I find argument is addictive but not very fruitful. Online I end up turning into a kind of keyboard warrior and people get very involved on some kind of emotional level but these are compulsive and very limited emotions. It's addictive bu...

Re: What were the earliest mentions of Christianity?

I thought it was strange that none of the Church Fathers mentioned anything about gospels before the appearance of Marcion’s “gospel”. Also there were no polemics against them until after the second century. It's like they didn't make any impact at all for decades after they were written. They mayb...

Re: What were the earliest mentions of Christianity?

As I said not my field. I think one should be wary of forming opinions on everything under the sun. I think it unlikely we will reach the truth by pooling our ignorance. But I think you would find no serious scholars defending the case that Marcion wrote the gospel of Luke and then some completely u...

Re: What were the earliest mentions of Christianity?

As I keep saying it's not my field. These are technical matters and you need to discuss them with someone with the appropriate academic background. I do know that Irenaeus compares the four gospels to the four winds or four corners of the earth which suggests that the idea of there being four gospel...
