Re: Health of the NFL

I think there is reason to be worried. In May of 2016 I noticed I was a lot less interested than I used to be, and someone else started a thread stating the same thing. When the kneeling started it accelerated the process for me. I have not watched a game since week 2 and I am planning on on quittin...

Re: Dealing for Zeek

I'm in "Win Now" mode and thinking about trading away Zeke. I think I would need more immediate firepower to trade him. For me you would have to have players included that would cost you the rest of the season this year, but you would not necessarily need to include the first.

Re: Jimmy Garoppolo traded to the 49ers!

Does this make Marquise Goodwin worth claiming off the wire?

Re: Zeke suspension back on

In a similar situation. I think a well rested and ticked off Zeke coming back just in time for the playoffs could be a thing to behold. I'm probably gonna stick with what I have because I think I can make the post season without him. Probably won't be the 1 or 2 seed like I hoped, but if I get in I ...

Re: Did Jesus Christ die and rise rom the dead?

I think religion as a whole is a good thing (outside of the hate and violence it causes). Attempting to dissuade people from believing in something that gives them happiness probably isn't the best thing to do. That said, I felt compelled to type. The current discussion is just going in circles. On...

Re: Did Jesus Christ die and rise rom the dead?

Well, I have to admit I was surprised at the response tonight when I opened up the thread and was kind of impressed, until I clicked on the included link for Psychological projection. Sort of an unapologetic apology and it makes me doubt your sincerity. I think you are an extremely smart guy who rea...

Re: Did Jesus Christ die and rise rom the dead?

- It is irrational because your premise for believing those things are based on more false claims, specifically that there is no evidence. The Apostles did not live in a vacuum and were known to members of the early church. For your "Apostles didn't exist and the authorship of the Gospels was faked...

Re: Did Jesus Christ die and rise rom the dead?

It's not irrational to believe that the gospels were written by people who had geographic and historical knowledge of the area, but no first-hand knowledge of the supposed miracles. It's not irrational to believe that the gospels weren't written by the apostles themselves, or that we don't know who ...

Re: Did Jesus Christ die and rise rom the dead?

[/quote] Or a third possibility is that you're not understanding the entire concept of archaeology. [/quote] ...says the guy who put forth the "Forrest Gump" theory of Archeology. I suppose I should clarify my position though. I don't believe that proves it in the sense that it's iron clad, but I be...

Re: Did Jesus Christ die and rise rom the dead?

Umm no. Try applying what you just said to the movie Forrest Gump; the existence of accurate historical references might speak to the authenticity of a document's age, but aren't proof of its accuracy. - Umm, Yes. This is the way the science of archeology works. For you Forrest Gump analogy to be co...

Re: Did Jesus Christ die and rise rom the dead?

So let me get this straight, if Jesus didn't do any miracles and thus was just a regular guy, then you would expect the eyewitnesses to the nothing that he did to have written down documents which survived 2000 years stating that he did nothing? - No. My argument is if Christ did no miracles and the...

Re: Did Jesus Christ die and rise rom the dead?

"But I feel that my point still stands that the popularity of Christianity isn't proof of its accuracy. The stories of Muhammad and Buddha and basically all other religions could make a similar claim that something miraculous must have happened for it to catch on so well." - I have never argued that...

Re: Did Jesus Christ die and rise rom the dead?

The older I get the more I believe that religion (and the fighting/wars that has been a result of) is just stupid. I believe in a "creator", but at the same time there is many, many scientific things that are prove true and factual and they contradict what the Bible says. I hear ya Coog, but it's a...

Re: Did Jesus Christ die and rise rom the dead?

So I am looking over my latest post and I guess I am worried it might look like an attack on Tsunami. I was feeling the pressure to get something up since I didn't post yesterday and I had the kids crawling over me so I was a little bit rushed. It's not meant as an attack and I sincerely apologize i...

Re: Did Jesus Christ die and rise rom the dead?

Nah, It's just that with religious atheism on the rise most people don't know what the evidence is. The cornerstone of Christianity is the belief that Jesus Christ did and rose from the dead. If it did not happen, then Christianity is false, but if it did happen then Christianity is true. Even secu...
