Few bother to read and understand what is written in the Bible or think critically about what Christian doctrine implies. Each point listed below presents a claim for questioning the authenticity of Christianity. In total, they lay out a convincing case that Christianity is untrue. In Christianity, we see none of these elements. This strongly implies that Christianity is a myth and possesses no intrinsic truth. Gary Shadle is a theist who volunteered to construct a rebuttal to each of the listed reasons. This effort began on October 1,
Logically disproving the Christian God
Jan jdldore Although Homme has been available for years, it is a relatively new fragrance for me and is one of my very favorites. Several reviewers have mentioned the strong iris smell. Perhaps because most of the irises I have planted over the years are hybridized bearded irises with no or a very faint aroma, I don’t smell iris specifically. What I do smell is wonderfully warm, slightly sweet, and soapy clean. It relaxes me immediately. I’ve been putting it on when I know I have a stressful day ahead and it has worked like a charm.

The two statements above are clearly interdependent. The Bible tells Christians that God is infallible, and Christians believe the Bible because they believe it was written by an infallible deity. Almost a self-fulfilling prophecy, almost. Using genealogy, we can roughly estimate the age of the earth, as stated by the Bible, to be years. Science has proven that the earth is closer to 4.
Radiometric dating has shown us this, and has remained consistent with lunar and terrestrial samples. What about the creatures on the earth? We, as human beings, were created years ago, according to the Bible, starting with Adam and then Eve. The oldest discovered human fossil is approximately 1, , 1. That would have meant that humans lived on earth before God created either humans or the earth. In fact, depending on how much evidence you consider to be acceptable, and how you define us as a species, you could place humans at between 1.
No one could sensibly claim that humans are less than , years old. There is simply too much evidence available for our inspection.
The Lost Sayings Gospel Q
Peter used the sky as a proof that Messiah had come, but which sky did he use? A body of scholarly work addresses the date of the crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. This body of work, together with Roman and Jewish histories, archaeoastronomy and the words of the Bible allow us to identify the day and almost the moment of his death.
That is an extraordinary claim. You must judge it for yourself.

During the 1st century there were 58 total eclipses throughout the world. Between years 16 and 43 AD there were eleven: If Thallus had lived in the 1st rather than the 2nd century, he may have noted the eclipse that was visible in the Persian Gulf in November of 29 — which doesn’t fit the Jesus chronology and would have been of negligible impact in Jerusalem, hundreds of miles away. The early Christians were zealous readers of his work.
Though not born until 37 AD and therefore not a contemporary witness to any Jesus-character, Josephus at one point even lived in Cana, the very city in which Christ is said to have wrought his first miracle. In these complementary works, the former written in the 70s, the latter in the 90s AD, Josephus mentions every noted personage of Palestine and describes every important event which occurred there during the first seventy years of the Christian era.
At face value, Josephus appears to be the answer to the Christian apologist’s dreams. In a single paragraph the so-called Testimonium Flavianum Josephus confirms every salient aspect of the Christ-myth:

Oct Ricardinho This is probably one of the only fragrances which I will buy a new bottle of when it’s finished. It’s totally unique, totally masculine and will never go out of fashion, at least not for me. I prefer this oldy over most of the newer, more modern fragrances. With this fragrance I also don’t care at all what other people’s opinions are about it.
Muslims account for over twenty percent of the population of the world and more than that fraction of prime-aged girls. For religious and cultural reasons these girls tend to be quite inaccessible to outsiders and often have their romantic and sexual choices restricted or simply made on their behalf.
Each of the pictured bottles has a relatively short description and explanation including estimated dates or date ranges for that type bottle and links to other view pictures of the bottle. Additional links to images of similar bottles are also frequently included. The array of references used to support the conclusions and estimates found here – including the listed dating ranges – are noted. Additional information and estimates are based on the empirical observations of the author over 50 years of experience; this is often but not always noted.

Controversy[ edit ] Anthropologist Helen Fisher in What happens in the dating world can reflect larger currents within popular culture. For example, when the book The Rules appeared, it touched off media controversy about how men and women should relate to each other, with different positions taken by columnist Maureen Dowd of The New York Times  and British writer Kira Cochrane of The Guardian.
Sara McCorquodale suggests that women meeting strangers on dates meet initially in busy public places, share details of upcoming dates with friends or family so they know where they’ll be and who they’ll be with, avoid revealing one’s surname or address, and conducting searches on them on the Internet prior to the date.
Don’t leave drinks unattended; have an exit plan if things go badly; and ask a friend to call you on your cell phone an hour into the date to ask how it’s going. If you explain beautifully, a woman does not look to see whether you are handsome or not — but listens more, so you can win her heart. That is why I advise our boys to read stories and watch movies more and to learn more beautiful phrases to tell girls.
The Internet is shaping the way new generations date. Facebook , Skype , Whatsapp , and other applications have made remote connections possible. Online dating tools are an alternate way to meet potential dates. The average duration of courtship before proceeding to engagement or marriage varies considerably throughout the world.
Below – My TV debate with Cardiff Freemason Jim Bevan – – – – Freemasonry and Witchcraft initiation rites compared “The great strength of our Order lies in its concealment; let it never appear in any place in its own name, but always covered by another name, and another occupation. None is better than the three lower degrees of Free Masonry; the public is accustomed to it, expects little from it, and therefore takes little notice of it.
Next to this, the form of a learned or literary society is best suited to our purpose, and had Free Masonry not existed, this cover would have been employed; and it may be much more than a cover, it may be a powerful engine in our hands. By establishing reading societies, and subscription libraries, and taking these under our direction, and supplying them through our labours, we may turn the public mind which way we will.
Books , films and ex-Freemason exposees Without doubt the most useful and accurate information on the Freemasons comes from ex memers of ‘the craft’. A large percentage of Masons are kept in the dark on purpose so the real agenda can be carried out.

The Catholics made purely theological arguments as to why Jesus Christ had to have existed “in the flesh” None of these points are meant to stand on their own, but collectively they provide a very strong argument against the story of Jesus Christ being based on a real person. It is important to note that we have one, and only one, source of information about the life of Jesus and that is the Christian Gospels. The Gospels are the sole source of information about this figure; everything that we “know” about “him” depends on these sources.
There are two basic views of the Biblical Jesus as a real person today, the religious Christian view and the secular historical view. The religious Christian view takes the Gospels as accurate and reliable accounts of the life of Jesus, including all of the miracles. The religious Christian view demands that Jesus Christ was a popular and well known figure in the region, who drew crowds of thousands of people and performed great miracles, who was such a revolutionary figure that the Jewish priesthood was compelled to have him arrested and put to death in dramatic fashion before hundreds or thousands of witnesses.
The secular historical view basically starts with the Gospels and then removes the fantastic or “supernatural” claims in the Gospels and accepts what is left as history. The secular historical view tends to minimize the role of Jesus in the region, stating instead that he was barely noticed by others. Secular historians who believe that Jesus existed rely on the Gospels as essentially historical, but inflated, accounts of his life.
But are the Gospels reliable historical accounts? The Gospel of Mark is the first story of Jesus that was written, and all others are dependent on it The origin of the Gospels has always been unknown. At no point has anyone that we know of really known who wrote any of the Gospels, when they were written, or even where they were written. Each of the Gospels could have been written anywhere from Egypt to Rome, and the estimated dates for their writing range from around 50 CE at the earliest estimates to about CE at the latest, with a minority of people proposing dates into the 4th century.
The traditional explanation for the origin of the Gospels has been that they were each written independently by people who were either disciples of Jesus or who received their information from disciples of Jesus.

Jesus Myth – The Case Against Historical Christ. By – January 03, The majority of people in the world today assume or believe that Jesus Christ was at the very least a real person.
The siglum Q derives from the German word “Quelle,” which means “Source. Although the temptation story and the healing of the centurion’s son are usually ascribed to Q, the majority of the material consists of sayings. Some scholars have observed that the Gospel of Thomas and the Q material, as contrasted with the four canonical gospels, are similar in their emphasis on the sayings of Jesus instead of the passion of Jesus.
Such a common order demands a theory that Q at some stage existed in written form. Tuckett comments on the argument that variations between Matthew and Luke are due to variant translations of an Aramaic Q op. It is doubtful if more than a very few cases of variation between Matthew and Luke can be explained in this way.
Many of the alleged translation variants turn out to be simply cases of synonyms, and the differences between Matthew and Luke can often be explained just as well as due to the redactional activity of the evangelists Kloppenborg For example, in Luke In other parts of the Q material, the verbal agreement between Matthew and Luke amounts to virtual verbal identity in Greek Luke 3: In these instances the measure of verbal agreement seems to demand a common Greek source.
Further, some features of Q’s Greek can be shown to be characteristic of a source originally written in Greek and uncharacteristic of translation Greek Turner
