Re: Generic Religion

But I, as well as many other people, cannot be intellectually honest if we deny what God has actually done in our lives as evidence that the supernatural exists. On a road of doubt I prayed over time for God to just let me have some kind of sign to strengthen my fading faith, in which I prayed many...

Re: What Do Mythicists Want?

A very large amount of analytic material on this subject can be found here. http://www.jesusneverexisted.com/ Also skip down the left column for material on Paul. One of them brings up the Paul of Acts and notes most every big city he visited already had Christians there to greet him and extend hosp...

Re: Bibleland in history and archaeology

There is stuff that is earlier than the DSS. Lachish_letters The Lachish Letters (Hoshaiah Letters) are a series of letters written in carbon ink in Ancient Hebrew on clay ostraca. The letters were discovered at the excavations at Lachish (Tel ed-Duweir). The letters were probably written shortly b...

Re: What Do Mythicists Want?

... The problem is they can't do it because they are only this for the hate. The imputation of motives is not going to get you very far. In fact it has been noted as one of the problems. Now if you just mean the modern substitution of 'hate' for 'you refuse to agree with me' fine please say so. Pri...

Re: Lachish letters

For the record the Biblical Archaeology Review is a newsstand magazine not a professional journal of any kind.

Anyone citing is as an authoritative source is as unqualified to have an opinion on the subject as the magazine itself.

Re: Lachish letters

After some thought, I'm not sure what the significance of the script is. The opinion that the various inscriptions are in Hebrew seems unanimous - The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia - http://www.amazon.com/International-Standard-Bible-Encyclopedia-Vol/dp/0802837859/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&...

Re: Lachish letters

To summarize, you have never actually looked at the script and compared it to Phoenician. Further 1) There is no rational excuse for having only broken pottery to write on if there were dirt cheap clay tablets. 2) The only bible connection is the mention of YHWH who was a god worshiped from ancient...

Re: What Do Mythicists Want?

This seems applicable to describing why there is such a stark rhetorical difference between the Historical Jesus problem (you must assume the historicity of Jesus) or Pauline authenticity problem (you must accept the Hauptbriefe) and the Synoptic Problem (anything goes): "The smart way to keep...

Re: Lachish letters

It's amusing to see you put on your scholar robes, and present us with A-Nony analysis as opposed to anonymous wiki. Reminds of my Miniature_Pinscher wearing his special doggy tuxedo. I brought up the Letters in response to your statement in http://earlywritings.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=32...

Re: What Do Mythicists Want?

I just want to know what the truth is. I'm truly agnostic on the issue and have no preference for one answer over another, but I wish the historicists were more honest about the true paucity of their evidence. By quantity their evidence rises above that for Apollonius of Tyana but not above that fo...
