          1. I read about one paragraph and realized he almost always speaks (or writes) in simple semtemces , no deep complicated surgery involved, nope. ” I saw a rabbit. It was a big white rabbit. It hopped toward me.” Not the most riveting speaker/writer, nope.

            My contribution: THere are none so blind as those that will not see! That scripture works both ways.

            Of course, to Moderation it quickly went … so we shall see.

  1. My Islamic faith is based on scientific evidence and logic, too. Hmmm…Odd that it differs so much from this fools faith. Obviously, HE’S wrong in his thinking somewhere and Allah does not suffer illogical fools lightly.

  2. “I’ve written three books of evidence — scientific, historical, logical, philosophical etc.”

    If he had the evidence, he wouldn’t need to write the effing books.

      1. I’d happily point it out to him, but he’s easily triggered by anyone else’s “sneering superiority” but his own.
        (Excuse the vulgarity, but he probably thinks his s**t doesn’t stink, either).

        It’s the sheer lack of evidence — a term they never truly acknowledge the meaning of — for either their god or their faith that compels apologists to write all these faux-learned defensive tracts, not one of them remotely interesting, original or useful. It’s all for show.

  3. About a man, with a Greek name of “Jesus”? Or a Jewish man/Rabbi named Yeshua bar Yosef who spoke & taught in the Semitic tongues of Mishnaic Hebrew and Syro-Aramaic?

    So…are those “three books” Phil references written perfectly in the man’s two languages? And are the contents in perfect context of Late Second Temple Judaism/Messianism, with no later Hellenistic influences decades, centuries later?

    If all this is true, please point me to these extant three books in those two languages and with Jewish theology, not Greco-Roman. THAT would be a miracle, huh? 😄🤭

        Just after I finish my morning cups of Joe, breakfast, shower, and packing my luggage—to go to grandma’s house. 😁

        Over the river and through the woods,
        Oh, how Phil’s wind does blow!
        It stings the toes and bites the nose,
        As over the ground I go.

          1. what sort of childhood did you have!?

            I lived on Jam sandwiches and Cornflakes, was forced to watch Manchester United on the TV and only read Enid Blyton and Playboy.
            I had to see a therapist for years

  4. Your “friend” points out in one place that “People already have freedom from religion” and goes on to confirm this statement by saying no one is “forced to attend any kind of religious services.”

    As usual, he (as well as thousands and thousands of other “believers”) totally misses the point. One wonders how many times it needs to be said before they understand that “religion” is forced upon people in a multitude of ways every single day!! Of course those that have been indoctrinated are blind to these acts because to them it’s all perfectly “natural.” GAG!

      ”Seven and three quarters, Daddy.”
      ”Sorry sweetheart. Of course. Seven and three quarters. You are growing up so fast I sometimes forget. Well, this is the choice you have. Would you like to hear of the wonderful saving grace of Jesus who is our Lord and maker of everything …”

      Yes, dear, including kittens. Or would you rather spend an eternity being tortured in a place called Hell. Which, by the way, Jesus created?”

  5. Surely you must anticipate some kind of input from one of your fav visitors….

    But evidence ark? I’m so laughing, in a good way, not to spite. But you have a greater issue with the good Dr, and that is, you agree, using the same rules of evidence, that the earth somehow convulses and gyrates, and speeds and motions no one has ever seen- so yeah, strange bedfellows to be so aligned with one who yokes with your ‘science’ while you despise his ‘science.’

    So I’ll bang my head on the pole too.

    1. You require proof of a spinning globe? But granting such evidence would unnecessarily weaken your faith in heliocentrism. Nah, it is much, much better to believe it without evidence. Or as Jesus would say, ““Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

            You may as well try to prove that the pool table surface is moving…… because the balls are moving over it.

          3. I can do you one better. Here’s a video of a pool table that moves while the (un-played) balls upon its surface remain motionless.

            See how this works? Your perception of “reality” is influenced by your point of reference. From the camera’s perspective, the pool table is in motion relative to the billiard balls and the rest of the room. From the billiard ball’s perspective, the rest of the room is in motion relative to the surface of the pool table. And from an observer on shore or another ship, both the ship and the pool table are in motion relative to the sea.

  6. Acting as if these things are evidence-less and absurd, “the earth somehow convulses and gyrates, and speeds and motions no one has ever seen”

    WTF? So… what? A flat earther? A solar system denier? A geology denier? A space hoaxer? A planet denier? Somebody help me understand! This makes no sense even in the deepest well of delusion.
