Richard Carrier debunks Christianity using Science and History.
I like Carrier's attempt to not hold back on the real history of religion, their intervening derived sources in how they developed and evolved..
At least have the originally to offer some personal insight or opinion or give us the readers digest version. Please think before you post because you are boring me. Stuff like this is like being in an assembly.
I am merely posting an interesting lecture that I saw. I am not professing to offer it as my own material so your statement telling me that I should "at least have the originality to ..." is wholly unwarranted. If you find stimulating intellectual discussions involving history and science to be boring then no one is forcing you to view the video. You can go to another thread that interests you. When you're watching television and happen upon a channel that has a program that you consider to be boring, do you call up the channel and complain or do you switch to another channel? You know who would call up the channel and complain? If a program on evolution was playing, an insecure theist who doesn't want to be confronted with facts that disprove his belief system - that is who might go out of his way to call up and complain. Is that why you're complaining about my thread - because you are insecure in your beliefs and don't like threads that present information and logic that expose your beliefs as false?
Please think before you post because you are boring me.
The horror, the horror!
I for one will personally consult you before making any further posting decisions, your most obsequious & bulbous highness.
Please do not smite me!
Great stuff. Most of this I had read in various places. Putting it all together in this manner makes me even more embarrassed that I ever believed this nonsense.
The really sad about this place is I could post some anti-Christian lecture by Bart Herman and all the minions here would pipe up how enlightening it was , without realize the foundation of Carrier and Ihram believe are basically polar opposite of each other.
I came to this board to for tips and how an UBM can cope or even perhaps even get my wife to escape this evil cult. I also thought ex-jws were really sincere people who just couldn’t live the lie anymore.
The reality the ex-JW community is just bunch self-congratulatory liberal arts d-bags who figure because they read a Dawkins, Hitchens, Carrier, Ehrman book you are automatically a historian, archaeologist and evolutionary biologist all at the same time.
God, I think I would rather hang out with a car load of circuit overseers sometimes.

Teach her about the evidence for evolution.
Clambake: I came to this board to for tips .. get my wife to escape this evil cult.
cofty: Teach her about the evidence for evolution.
That's exactly how I escaped from this evil cult, Clambake! I learned about evolution from the viewpoint of the scientists and came to realize that Watchtower's arguments against evolution consisted of dishonesty, ignorance and fallacies.
This site is full of OPs you seek. Get some self control dude. Develop some emotional maturity. Avoid these OPS if they bother you so much. Back away from the keyboard.
And do something about that shrill whine. It's hurting my ears. But thank you so much for the Dislike. I will wear it with pride.
