Can you give me an example?
I want a book or article written by the Greeks or Romans in 1CE about killing of babies. That's all.
Josephus did not provide any writings on this, but lack of writing during this time frame suggest that we wasn't in Bethlehem.
it is very accurate to his character described by johephus in early works though.
Am I to believe that the killing of the innocents by Herod wasn't such a big news item to warrant recording by Josephus but he gets all the details of your Jesus life correct?
"First we must establish that the bible is historically accurate"
Duh...and after 2,000+ years still waiting, ho-hum ho-hum...and still waiting.
Oh shit that's right, the rational historians have already established the bible is NOT a historical account. IT IS A FUCKING BOOK OF MYTHOLOGY!!!
Now that we got that straight...
When you researched it did you look at the case against Christianity?
If so, which authors have you read?
If not, do you think it balanced and rational to consider only one side of an issue?
yes, i used to be agnostic so i researched quite a bit.
i didn't read authors for specific points, although reading philosophy helped a bit.
i mostly researched prophecy and historical accuracy.
I will take that as a no. My advice is to read a book by a famous atheist or anti-theist. An entire book.
If you had been convinced that an alien had visited you instead of a miracle would you just research UFOs and paranormal phenomena or would you read those who debunk such things?
Don't be a christian. Use your brain.
Or just read the bible, cover to cover. Christians receive their bible as little snippets (a cherry picked 5%) with a spin. If you read the bible cover to cover and still wanna be a Christian, then you should be.
robert, Ive read it 11 times, the first man i met in the tribe read his every week.
im a missionary kid, and i have good arguments
of course i read the bible.
11 times. WTF! You don't have other books?
