(Since I had it done, here it is. Part 1 is here.)
I had not heard about the “dane’s kings list going back to Noah”. I wonder do you know of the list of Japanese emperors that goes back to the goddess Amaterasu and further back to Izanagi and Inzanami? I didn’t think so. So you see, anyone can make up a list that declares that they came from magical divine origins and by your “reasoning” those list simply must be true with no further thought put to the problem. There is a list of kings from the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle that says that one of the germanic kings, Sceafa (also spelled Scef or Sceaf) was one of Noah’s sons, but golly the bible doesn’t mention it. We also have other versions of these northern tribal geneaologies that claim decent from Woden/Odin/Gautr. Why then Thor must exist!
The only X-O3b that I know of is an extrasolar planet that is in orbit around a star in the constellation Camelopardalis (in the Southern Hemisphere) You see, I rather like astronomy too. It’s quite a bright star and the planet may indeed be more a brown dwarf star than planet like Jupiter, but the distinction between the brown dwarfs and Jovian planets are fairly small.
Bible codes are all just some of the funniest nonsense I’ve seen. There even better than the rants about a flat earth and Queen Elizabeth being a reptiloid. It’s kind of sad but hilarious to watch Christians try to declare that they are such special snowflakes, by declaring that they’ve found a “code” in their bible, the same bibles that they pick and choose from, declare translations are bad when convenient, etc. What’s even better is that none of their claims of predictions from this bible have ever been presented before an actual event and were proven accurate. Nope, all of them come out after an event, with the desperate theist saying “see, see, I found it” after the fact. It’s just poor people trying to revise history and a rather pitiful way to do it when it’s so obvious they are cheating. Why, Woody, I can do the same thing with any book if I make up a method and claim to predict an event that already happened in the most vague way possible. Here’s your special method right here. It’s just as silly as the rest.
As you said, Woody, most of these are typical; typical nonsense spread by believers created in their desperate attempts to find *any* evidence, any at all for their god since these believers are not satisfied with simple faith. They need to claim that their beliefs are rooted in reality, but in their desperation, they cease to think critically and we see the result.
I do reject religion because they are all much the same and they all have no evidence for their gods or essential events. If you might recall, there are Christians who do accept evolutionary theory, but as always I’m sure you will claim they are not TrueChristianstm. I do not give other religions a pass and Woody, claiming that I do shows that you lie willingly and you lie from a base of willful ignorance. Any short internet search will find the same criticism leveled at Islam, Hinduism, Judaism and Jainism (by myself) etc. At Jesus and Mo, we have ridicule of both Christianity and Islam at once! I know that these facts do damage your need to believe you are some kind of a martyr, but alas for you, it isn’t true and only makes you look like you have no interest in following your god when it commands “Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness.” I have looked truth in the eye, and a scholar and as a lady (really, “gentleman”? OH yes, you can’t possibly think a woman would tell you that you are wrong, eh?) and I have seen that your claims of truth are built on lies, willful ignorance and using long superseded information. I seek the truth and it does not mean one man’s version of one god from one sect of one religion that has nothing to support it. You don’t even agree with your fellow Christians and you have no more evidence you are right than the next theist. Studying myths for 4 years, or 400 will not make them true if you cannot present any evidence that they are true. Oh and the word “proven” isn’t “broad” at all. Sorry, Woody, but trying to redefine a word is just one more Christian tactic to try to excuse their failings. To prove something isn’t hard, if one has the evidence. If you are indeed taking economics, one might assume that you are in either high school or college. That means at some point you will be required to think critically or you’ll fail. Now, I ask you to apply that critical thinking to your religion. Don’t fall victim to the desire to compartmentalize your religion from everything else you doubt and think about.
As for the “Armory”, no, Woody, I don’t watch videos gathered up and repeated by Christians unless I’m really really bored because they say nothing more than what I’ve read. I see you’ve used a typical weasel word, “seriously”, so you can make up more excuses if you want by claiming I didn’t watch them “seriously enough” e.g. came to the same conclusions you did. In case you need more of those weasel words, others often used are “humbly”, “honestly”, “sincerely”. They’re all equally amusing.
I expect Christians to make their own arguments, not hide behind the skirts of someone else in their cowardice. I have found that many Christians don’t even understand the arguments they claim are so “very good”, just like I’ve found that many *many* Christians have never read their own bible in its entirety. Your website is a font of KJV onlyists, something that none of you have been able to prove as true, that your favorite bible and only that bible is the “true” one. So again, make your own arguments if you think they are valid.
This has to be one of the most quote-worthy bits I’ve seen in a long time from a creationist:
“And if you get to concerned with INFORMATION you will become spiritually worthless and bitter.”
Also known as an attempt to frighten and bully people by trying to get them to obey. It’s pretty much: “If you think about this, you’ll realize that Woody is a liar. So better to remain willfully ignorant and allow him his delusions.” You also claim that one needs to pray to your god to get answers. Well, I did when I was a believer and when I was losing my faith. Since I got bupkis, we have only a few possibilities, your god likes me just like I am, your god isn’t anything like you claim or your god doesn’t exist. Now, cue the claims that I didn’t pray in the “right” way. I do also like how you insist that you need to defend your god. Poor thing, it can’t defend itself and has to rely on someone like you? Oy, I see its problems already.
Saving the best until last, I see you cite Kent Hovind. It’s so amusing when Christians claim that people who have never even tried to get a degree in something are now experts in it. I wonder, do you take your car to a pediatrician or yourself to car mechanic for medical treatment. And Kent is such a good Christian, lying and cheating about his taxes. Hmmm, seems that he doesn’t remember these bits from the bible: Matthew 22:17-22, Romans 13:1-7, Exodus 20:16 Hovind seems to think he can pick and choose from his bible too, unsurprisingly. You can see his very entertaining but utterly false claims addressed here. Poor Kent, has no idea how hydrology and hydrogeology work. Poor guy, even other creationists think he’s nuts when it comes to the flood and his version of creation.
Now, I’m still waiting for that one thing I’ve asked you for, Woody.
Postscript – to all of the theists who are going “geez, at least I’m not that crazy”, I’d agree, you probably aren’t. But you do have some of the same beliefs all without evidence like Woody. Don’t feel too smug.
