    I'm still curious, was your hope that somehow one of us might've changed our minds?

    Im just honestly trying to figure out what your goal was in asking loaded questions of an interlocutor from a...

    Truth which can only be known subjectively does not mean that it is only true subjectively, only that its truth can only be known subjectively. There is a large difference between those two.

    You...

    I do not believe most of the miracle stories are factually true. I also do not think most are intended as such. The majority of miracle stories are vehicles for communicating theological truths about...

    I would affirm that they are truly different,but that I know this truth subjectively. Subjective truth is no less true than objective truth.

    You completely walked around my question and chose to insult me instead. Kudos on the attempt. Let me be note direct.

    How do you reconcile the Christian God with the following:

    I believe that those things are fundamentally different when they are shaped by the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and by/within a community which is formed by that cross and resurrection. ...

    Very little in history is fact. I'm discussing what evidence we have. There are multiple theories as to the origins of Ancient Israel, none of which include the Egyptian captivity and Exodus because...

    We know about the temple destructions from multiple sources,and are able to locate the precise dating for the Babylonian and Roman conquests from cooperating and coordinating names of kings of both...

    If they had lasted 40 years,one would expect at least some development of unique material culture to separate them from the folks just north. All of the evidence suggests that the majority if the...

    Two temple destructions would do the trick. You're actually pretty well backwards here. The Jewish temple in Jerusalem was destroyed in 587 BCE then rebuilt, and destroyed again in 70 CE. If those...

    If you remove the word slaves, yes. We have plenty of evidence of immigration from ancient civilizations. These people aren't going willy nilly. They are working from established models. The original...

    We have a lot of archaeological methods at this point,and most have come back pretty empty. What that means is...there are 3 fronts of research where we might hoped to have found something,and the...

    I believe the evidence on this forum is abundantly clear at this point that hyperbole is,at the very least, not *all* it was.

    Dear god. Read further up. I've already dealt with thst. And it isn't obfuscation,nor do I believe it to be hyperbole. I believe it to be an absolutist statement aimed and dismantling and shaming...

    You're missing some things here...

    (1) I reject your starting point that empirical evidence is necessary for belief. You don't get to determine the philosophical framework that is acceptable

    No. It is a religious belief that god is the creator of the entire natural order. That cannot be proven or disproven. That's just a reality. From there, the belief that Hod created the natural order...

    You have just swung and missed on my argument pretty badly. I am arguing nothing close to god of the gaps because I am not arguing that archaeological evidence does not establish the relative...

    It is a philosophical and logical necessity. If everything that is within the natural order is a creation of God, and therefore, natural order itself is a creation of God, then God is de facto...

    I never said you were dumb. I said you were using irrational, absolutist rhetoric.

    You seem so blinded by your agenda that you can't read what I'm actually saying.

    I have already agreed that,...

    You seem to be trying really hard to relegate God to the natural order. Why is that? That makes no sense to me, unless you're looking to attempt to make people seem more irrational than they are.

    It means that faith in God presumes God created. Even if it is possible the world could exist without anyone/thing creating it, faith would still believe God did.

    And this is an area where...

    No, it isn't. Considering we do not have access to every "stretch of the truth" in human history, or every piece of literature, or oral tradition in human history, archaeological evidence does us...

    No. It is certainly a possibility, but there's no way to determine that. You're just looking to slam something you don't like by applying anachronistic expectations of truth, history, and literature....

    You're attempting to make fun of my use of quotations which were used accurately, and only 3x (two unique ibstances) in a post of over 500 words... By using them inaccurately 6x in a post of 6 words?...

    I know. There really isn't much use for doing history and literature here. Just parroting what someone has said as a means of advancing an agenda... Typically against religion.
