1. Anyone who talks to a god is a prophet. Look it up.
2. I've looked up the history of Damascus. It was not destroyed, and is in fact one of the oldest inhabited cities on earth. If you don't believe me, check the city's website http://www.damascus-online.com/history.htm
3. Dude, you can't prove they weren't plundered, it wasn't really important at all so it just isn't recorded
Dude, the history is tangled up with Alexander the Great, who was very fucking important. A lot of study has gone into the area.
All those promises that were seemed to be broken arent. The first one on that site says. God says that if Adam eats from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, then the day that he does so, he will die. But later Adam eats the forbidden fruit (3:6) and yet lives for another 930 years (5:5). 2:17
Now I dont feel like arguing about everyone on the site to prove their wrong but I will on this one. If Adam didnt eat from the fruit he would of never died. When he does he is able to die and which he does when he was 930. The day he eat the fruit his imortal self died and he became mortal.
Jesus answered him, "It is written:'Do not put the Lord your God to test.'
Jesus said to him, "Away from me, Satan! For it is written:'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.
Radix all your doing is testing God by questioning him.
1. Joshua...sigh. Ok, he said that indeed the Jebusites would be driven out, but they weren't. indeed he also said that the Canaanites would be driven out, but they weren't. Tell me...do those two tribes still exist in the promised land today? If not then they were driven out...they never really specified when they would be driven out.
2. After several battles, the Assyrian armies managed to reach the Syrian coast and in 841 BC, Damascus was besieged and taken by King Hadad Niari III.It is most probable that the remains of the Aramaean town lie buried under the eastern part of the old walled city.
This plainly states it was destroyed.
Sovereignty over Damascus passed from the Assyrians to the Chaldaeans (Neo-Babylonians) under King Nebuchadnezzar in 572 BC.
This plainly states that Nebby took it. Case closed. i took that right off the sight you gave me if you dont believe it look it up.
Did I not already say God would'nt be creater of life if something created him. He has always existed and always will. Everything has been created by one, GOD. You have been made by the hands and eyes of God to be different like everyone else.
Yami, you have some of the worst logical skills I have ever seen.
"There are actualy documents that everything in the bible happened."
False. And keep in mind that writing isn't always accurate... if I wrote down that Turkey was hit by a giant meteor in 2000 and someone discovers my paper, does that mean that Turkey was actually hit by a giant meteor? Speaking of which, it would be funny if archeologists found a copy of The Onion and believed that it was facual evidence.
Lazarus: The person who did the screenplay for The Exorcist also did the screenplay for The Amityville Horror (which was based off a "true" story). It turns out that the writer made up a bunch of crap for The Amityville Horror and got sued by the people who were "affected" by the Amityville Horror (which turned out to be a hoax).
Pete: So true about the "Where did God come from?" question.
Radix: You've had the most intelligent arguements in this thread, and you actualyl research what you're talking about. Congratulations.
And doesn't anyone else see what religion really is? It's our need for a purpose and for an explanation on things that don't make sense. That's why many ancient religions had gods of fire and air and water... they didn't know how they were created or what created natural disasters (such as volcanoes), so they made up a legend to explain them.
"Tyre was not plundered by Nebuchadnezzar. Neither was Egypt. Your opinion on the matter is irrelevant. Again, this is an instance of a prophet who made an incorrect prophesy. You can't pick and choose."
"Dude, you can't prove they weren't plundered, it wasn't really important at all so it just isn't recorded."
Uh... actually, they were important. Tyre was one of the most important cities in Mesopotamia (I forgot to who exactly... I think it was the Neo-Babylonians). Egypt was also pretty important too, though they were known to falsify records (the treaty between the Hittites and Egypt, for example).
EDIT: The Christian God is supposed to be omnipotent, which is actually impossible. Can God create a stone so large that he himself cannot lift it?
actually i meant it wasn't important to Israel because they had already been conquered at this time and the whole bible basically focuses on Israel's history, so these events wouldn't have been important for them at all.
You have to look up answers to back fire answers in the bible why dont you speak your opinion once without including information from someone elses opinion thats not even yours. If you keep arguing and having to find something to prove Im wrong then whose to say your even proving your opinion if its not from you. Dont argue about ideas that arent from you that you looked up. Anyone that argues with me is only arguing to prove me wrong proving what I just said. Your only arguing, because you dont know so you have to find a site that hates the bible by making up false lies to prove your point. Which was something you didnt know it was until you looked it up.
You are wrong. I have chosen to follow God because it simply makes more sense to me that someone created all this then for all this to be created by nothing. Scientists aren't even sure about their theories that's why they are only theories. Even the common christian is 100% positive about their beliefs, if they are a true christian that is. It is not a crutch, it is far from a crutch. I have not "sprained my mind as you say" I have chosen to do this of my own free will without any assistance from anyone else. I have used logic, and like i said logic tells me there is no way that the "big bang" could have ever occured because it really just makes no sense. Not everything in the Bible makes sense either, I agree but it has answers that scientists don't, which basically means to me that until it can be proven wrong, and be proven that God doesn't exist, I will believe it, and that is just the way it is.
You lied to me, Jesus! o_O Kidding...
@Yami: "If you don't believe in God, you finally live when you die. If you believe, you live forever..." -Quote from a Priest. THERE ARE YOUR LITTLE CHICKEN NUGGETS OF THOUGHT! USE THEM WISELY!
Fine Garbage since 2003.

-Working in television.
A religious game can be done, but it has to be right. I came up with a thilling puzzle/action rpg/platformer, named 'Power of Yahweh'.
Get the chance to become Noah, Abraham, Joseph, Lot, Moses, Aaron, and Jesus in this all new platformer! Create the Ark, Cross into Egypt, Build and destroy the Golden Calf, and defeat Satan, all in one game!
Download whenever we can possibly create this wad of jizz.
