I don?t understand how you can arrive at that conclusion. Can you explain the rationale there?
I am not anxious, lol; and I assure you that I have dedicated significant time and resources to investigation of Christianity (I was a Christian for half my life). The whole of the Christian faith is a house of cards built in a vacuum of evidence.
How is it different?
Oh, the thread was started by me... I thought you were replying to the OP. Was that just a remark to the general audience?
Why would there be consequences?
Why would Christians remember Mary? Why would Muslims remember Muhammad? Religions have to tell themselves stories about their foundation, which means telling themselves stories about their founding figures. When they first begin, they are small, and easily disrupted by the outside world. Think of the way Mormons vehemently deny Joseph Smith was a polygamist. They have to be the experts on their founder, and they have to present their founder in such a way that he is acceptable to the outside world.
You are the one pandering. Because if this all was going on constantly, why was the population of the Ottoman Empire 1/3 Christian even after losing the nearly all Christian Balkans. Talking about 1900. We know from actual documents that the first 4 Caliphs, the Ummayads and even later never wanted any converts. They actively discouraged them as that cut revenue. It was not until after the Crusades that there were any sizable number of converts. Whatever you are referencing it wasn't Muhammad or the early Islam. It just isn't there. So what you are talking about from Muhammad are later accretions. Not supposed to be, admittedly, but it is still true.
This is why it is so necessary to know history. It is sucessfully
Y'all saying this next year?
Make sure to capitalize gun, you know, for effect.
Some have been. I think its difficult to prove in some cases that a company knowingly hired illegal workers.
Evolution has an abundance of evidence, theism has zilch.
