Comment on Social Media is about People by Trisman http://hongkongudy.com/2012/02/social-media-is-about-people/comment-page-1/#comment-35654 Mon, 21 Dec 2015 20:45:32 +0000 http://hongkongudy.com/?p=671#comment-35654 Brilliant video, although there is so much inoimratfon to absorb that it requires seeing a second (or third) time. And yet, I come away with the feeling that social media is simply a new (multi-lane, high-speed) conduit for us humans to connect, interact and communicate. That’s not to devalue the platform, but to say that all these services (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, blogs) do nothing for us, yet allow us the freedom and flexibility to do what comes natural, though at a much faster pace.

A blog post I think you should read…seriously.

Comment on New Testament Manuscript Evidence – Updated by Arkenaten http://hongkongudy.com/2012/11/new-testament-manuscript-evidence/comment-page-1/#comment-22588 Sat, 26 Jan 2013 17:43:16 +0000 http://hongkongudy.com/?p=813#comment-22588 “The slaughter of the innocents could not have happened? Although it may not be recorded by any extra-biblical sources, there’s no reason to suspect it should have been.”

Of course it COULD have happened. Some folk believe it was in keeping with Herod’s nature, others disagree.
There were enough historians and others writing around that time…and certainly within the time frame that one would have expected it to have been recorded such a brutal massacre, however, none seem to have believed it was worth even a passing mention – including Josephus. Makes you wonder, I guess?
But I must always consider that you have an evangelist leaning and will side with the gospels every time. As they are god-breathed etc, yes?
Accuracy, honesty and truth take a back seat in such cases….every time.

But did it happen? Really? Do you TRULY believe that it did, or are you letting your evangelical, apologist self get the better of common sense? I wonder?
Then again Jonah could have been swallowed by a whale, right? ‘Course he could! 😉

Yes, I reckon it’s best you do go and do some research.

Ehrman is an odd case, is he not?
Apologist types like yourself, love to parade him out when it suits but will slate him when it doesn’t, reinforcing the cherry picker label some of you lot have.
Personally, I think he likes to sell books over and above his academic credentials. But then what do I know right?
His last book really teed off many people, especially with some of the conclusions he drew concerning the historicity of Jesus.
Not as bad as that dingbat Strobel, but bad enough to grate.

You are free to post whatever you wish, but please don’t do a post just for my benefit – there really isn’t an argument I haven’t heard or info that I haven’t read already.
Unless you have an epiphany of course.
But do the research. I encourage anyone to study as much material as possible,as they may one day become enlightened to the nonsense they have been fed, and it would be wonderful if you truly understood. So,hit the books…brilliant!
Try looking up Professors Ze’ev Herzog and Abel Finkelstein. Archaeologists who have some very interesting views concerning Moses and the Exodus.
Highly recommended.
Rene Salm, I have mentioned. Though you might not hold him in much regard as he is not a qualified archaeologist, even though his research is impeccable.
The Catholic Monk, Bagatti.
William Albright.

For goodness sake stay away from the likes of Craig, and Strobel and their ilk. Twits of the first evangelical degree.
Happy research.
If you learn anything really new, let me know, I mean it. have fun.

Comment on New Testament Manuscript Evidence – Updated by Karl Udy http://hongkongudy.com/2012/11/new-testament-manuscript-evidence/comment-page-1/#comment-22580 Sat, 26 Jan 2013 14:52:30 +0000 http://hongkongudy.com/?p=813#comment-22580 The slaughter of the innocents could not have happened? Although it may not be recorded by any extra-biblical sources, there’s no reason to suspect it should have been.

Now if you require the New Testament accounts to be verified by extra-biblical sources to allow them the possibility of truth, you are placing a burden on them that no classical document can handle.

You can complain about me not respecting Carrier enough, but when even Bart Ehrman thinks his theories are crackpot, don’t expect to get much traction.

This post was about the manuscript evidence for the New Testament. I replied to the points you raised earlier, as I consider it polite as the host of this blog. However, it is beginning to appear that you have an axe to grind with a separate issue and I don’t know that I would be able to answer you without lengthy research. If I do post a proper entry on these issues feel free to continue the conversation there, but I’m going to have to let these issues rest now, so please understand if I don’t reply further to those lines of inquiry.

It has no historical merit whatsoever, thus the assertion they parked off in Bethlehem is just a tad silly.
Try to get a genuine historian agree with this story and you’ll come up empty handed every time. And you know it!
I note that like so many cherry-picking Christians you neatly avoid the trip to Egypt and the obligatory visit to the Temple. Good one.
I thought you lot were obliged to be prepared to defend your belief? Weren’t you called to do so by Paul? It must be difficult though for how do you defend a lie and sleep at night? Tough call.
Ah yes, slating Carrier? Selective Scholarly bigotry as well.
Of course all those involved in theological circles are also well respected, are they not?
Remember Albright? What a super archaeologist he was , yes?
Spent quite a bit of time time digging in the Sinai etc looking for all those biblical towns and trying to prove that Jericho really did fall down. What a twit.
Saw his bottom in the end, if I recall. Sigh…
And there are others, but what is the point? And remember, “experts” like William Lane Craig, a fundamentalist, is obliged to sign a statement of faith with his employers.
You should dig up the one for his place of employ. They state that the bible is the inerrant word of god.
You just refuse to’get it’.
Maybe you should hang around a few blogs hosted by de convertees to see things from the other side of the fence? These folk were so devout at one point as to be almost bordering on scary.
When they realised what hogwash religion is and they walked away, the revelation cost them almost everything in many cases.

Anyway, bottom line?

The bible is false doctrine. Much of it is contradictory and cannot be harmonized – by Professor Carrier or anyone else with even half a brain who is prepared to be honest.

But freedom of choice is a wonderful thing.
