You know, outhouse, what needs to happen is proper islamic scholarship like that we do for Christianity's texts
Agreed.

We have critical scholars that criticize correctly the Abrahamic text.

Most Islamic scholars are just apologist with no regard for real history

I'm not a professor, I'm a cancer patient, my life is hell and I suffer everyday, I'm looking for peace. PROVE to me your right and I'll pick up a bible today.
thats terrible bud, I wish you the best

thing is religion despite its mythical horse crap, can be good for the heart, if you pass a promise you the first people to try give comfort and peace to your family will be the religious

Most pastors priest ect, deal with death almost on a daily basis helping grieving families cope, where no one else will. Also tied with hospice they really helped when we lost dad

Religion is not a negative despite it being a 100% creation of man, and only man evolved this text and religious practices.

No magic, no divine aspects, no afterlife, but it still speaks to the human condition of living and dealing with extreme loss

It would be nice if they could tell me what a god "is".
None of these theist know, each has their own perverted idea of what a god is.

Reality is the Abrahamic god started as Canaanite family of deities that were plagiarized by displaced Canaanites after the bronze age collapse. El was the father deity, and he had a wife Asherah also known in biblical text as the mother god. Their sons Baal and Yahweh. Each of these gods at times were followed by types of henotheism and monolatry. Yahweh doesn't have as much history as the other deities and possibly originated in Midian just before the bronze age collapse, parts are in Ugarit text, how much is debated.

Is ra El as in El the deity.

Israelites formed after 1200 BCE at which time they were proto Israelites as noted by Merneptah after he laid the people away and they were noted as being semi nomadic people, not a nation or government. Archeology shows very few settlements in the highland of Israel during this period, within 200 years 1000 BCE the slow migration had made the area quite populated with thousands of people and settlements all over the highlands.

One thing to note, Israelite cultures were many, they were not one people, during the bronze age collapse many different Semitic people ended up with the displaced Canaanite cultures. So we have multicultural Semitic peoples that made up these early groups. After 1000 BCE we started seeing more cohesion in these groups but still multi cultural. 800BCE we see some groups giving all Els power and wife to Yahweh, but not all cultures.

King Josiah made reforms after 622 BCE to the pre biblical collections of text, as he was a loyal Yahweh, he had the text redacted to monotheism. A political decision compiled two deities into one El and Yahweh. Despite this it wasn't until 200-400 BCE that monotheism took hold in Israelite cultures after being beat down yet again by foreign powers.
Iron Age Yahwism

The religion of the Israelites of Iron Age I, like the Ancient Canaanite religion from which it evolved and other religions of the ancient Near East, was based on a cult of ancestors and worship of family gods (the "gods of the fathers".[72][73] With the emergence of the monarchy at the beginning of Iron Age II the kings promoted their family god, Yahweh, as the god of the kingdom, but beyond the royal court, religion continued to be both polytheistic and family-centered.[74] The major deities were not numerous – El, Asherah, and Yahweh, with Baal as a fourth god, and perhaps Shamash (the sun) in the early period.[75] At an early stage El and Yahweh became fused and Asherah did not continue as a separate state cult,[75] although she continued to be popular at a community level until Persian times.[76]

If you can discredit Christ than anything goes. No guilt, remorse, no penalty for ones actions. Remove God from every book, money, monument and that will make society better. Look around have things gotten better with spperation Church and State? No.

Yes I can Mike.
No you can't but are free to believe what you wish as am I. I'm not some religious fanatic just a guy who believes in God, rather simple. My life my choice. I really don't care about what you do or do not believe in as that is your right. All I asked was a simple question to those who seem to think you can prove there's no God. Pages of this, that and the other have gone on and still no proof that there is no God.

By the way move the embassy tomorrow................

I said that, based on my own personal observation and experience.

Just remember -- if the world didn't suck, we would fall off.

My heart goes out to you! I can't imagine the pain and health issues. I have a few of my own.

You asked if there is a God? I will answer it and in fact there are two Gods! I have met both of them personally. One God is loving and genuine and the other is deceptive and controlling.

The deceptive God only has one goal. Ultimate revenge upon his arch enemy. The goal is to run the clock out on each mortal contaminated with sin to face judgment.

The genuine God is pleading for each mortal to come into repentence. The genuine God respects free will.

If you really want to meet God, put away every knowledge and experience. Simple request, ask God to pull the spiritual blinders off your eyes. Humbleness is the key into God revealing himself. God loves you and will force the evil one to stand down. You may have to ask a few times. God always tests our faith.

It is up to you....good luck.

New Western Wall train station to be named after Trump

A train station that will be built next to the Western Wall will be named after US President Donald Trump.

The decision was made by Transportation Minister Israel Katz, who said: “The Western Wall is the holiest place for the Jewish people, and I decided to name the train station that leads to it after president Trump – following his historic and brave decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.”

http://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Ne...er-Trump-520135
I hear that train a'coming...look out world...Trump coming through!

Made up words like "discredit" are non sequitur here.

Historically speaking he was a man and only a man.

Not a single word of the NT text was written by a witness, or anyone even close to the Galilean.

The NT is NOT a credible book of historical details. It is a book where primitive men looked at a man with divine intentions, nothing more.

Hell the Emperor was also the son of god, and considered divine.

Your denial of all credible evidence noted.

But you refuse facts no matter how well presented.

The onus is on YOU to prove the myth exist, your uneducated rhetoric worthless, in a historical discussion.

I provided a credible source that stated very clearly for the simpletons here, that Israelites compiled two gods into one. You refuse that

Iverteddude that was a bunch of non historical apologetic rhetoric.

You don't have any evidence, just a peanut gallery of brainwashed uneducated people backing you.

You have no evidence, no nothing, because myths do not exist outside brainwashed human emotions.

If you actually studied and knew what you were talking about, the conversation would be more interesting. \

All these dullards are so sharp
