That is the most peculiar bible verse I have ever read.

sex is not fornication, if its with your married partner.  The Bible also says to "keep the marriage bed undefiled".

QUOTE (paradigm_blue @ Jun 26 2004, 05:36 AM) Proof of divine inspiration?  I certainly think so.  Merely a morale book..well that's left up to the reader but I personally don't think so.  I ask the question, is it the only religious book that stacks up with modern science?  Before you answer that one, let's do our homework and not throw in the usual debate about evolution.  Cause evolution has been proven to be a false science.  There is nothing simple about a single celled organsim.  

paradigm blue, this thread is simply about Bible "FACTS," interesting little tidbits.  Nothing scientific or religeous.

Please lets not turn this into a flame war that will eventually get closed.  There are other threads for the science/religeon debate.

I agree....lets be decent here..If someone doesnt believe the Bible anyway...pleas dont waste your time trying to get the rest of us persuaded to follow you.

Then be expected to do the same thing and accept that some of us believe that the bible is just a moral guide book at best, instead of the ultimate truth.

Jesus was solid flesh and blood seen by thousands including the Roman garrison, so to dismiss him as a "myth" seems a bit harsh.
In scientific terms he was an alien visitor-

He said "I am not of this world" (John 8:23)....."I know where I came from and where I am going. But you have no idea where I come from or where I am going" (John 8:14)......"I'll tell you things hidden since the creation of the world" (Matt 13:35,

so isn't it a bit illogical of us not to at least listen to what he has to say?

The only reference to Jesus is in the Bible.  Were he real, other documentation would exist to support what is written in the Bible and without them he can not be said to have existed.

"Affirmative, I'm all ears"

With the lack of corroborating evidence he would be, in scientific terms, someone whose existence has not been proven.

Spock would say "You hold in your hands a book with accounts of a person called Jesus, yet there is nothing to substantiate what is written.  It would not be logical to presume the existence of Jesus on that document alone"

So where are these thousands of accounts?

Matthew 27:52-53 says dead saints rose from their graves and appeared to many. Strange no one else bothered to record it.

Not everything a book says is true.

Crikey may be referring to Tacitus.

That ossuary has already been established as at least partly a hoax. A portion of the inscription is fraudulent.

The Wiki article references a Discovery Channel special produced by a filmmaker named Simcha Jacobovici. I remember watching it and found it interesting but ultimately implausible. Biblical scholars who've commented on the TV special agree. Jacobovici produces some flashy specials but they're extremely short on reliable historicity. His work is primarily idle speculation set to special effects. Remember Exodus Decoded? It was comically inept.

I know, the Archeolgists say there were many people by those names, yet all the names of Jesus `s family may have been there, except for Simon and Jesus`s Sisters that were not named in the Bible.

His Exodus Decoded was really convincing, however I still hold that Moses may have been Akhenaten:)

Akhenaten was the son of Amunhotep III and a pagan who worshiped the sun disk. He never left Egypt nor was driven out; in fact, once he finished his purpose-built city of Akhetaten, there's no real evidence that he ever left its confines again.

And the Hebrews did not even yet exist.

How on earth could Akhenaten and Moses be the same person?

The city and citizens, which you yesterday described to us in fiction, we will now transfer to the world of reality. It shall be the ancient city of Athens, and we will suppose that the citizens whom you imagined, were our veritable ancestors, of whom the priest spoke; they will perfectly harmonise, and there will be no inconsistency in saying that the citizens of your republic are these ancient Athenians. --  Plato's Timaeus
