So when will they decide that all the rules in the new testement are rubbish and come up with a NEw New Testement?

Isn't that why Religion was formed in the first place -a control on people who were unable to behave morally without fear/threat of punishment from divine being.

I think the link between morality and Xianity is tedious at best. I don't think the bible has much link on the lives of most people who call themseleves Xian.

What evidence? where exactly is this evidence? oh yes the bible...

>reasonable ones

? huh - reasonable? rational and resonable minds believe that a man rose from the dead walked on water and turned water into wine. that the red sea was parted -whoops sorry that one isn't true -that was in the first book the one that we lied in so we could maintain social order while we were living in tents!!

The whole temple thlng too - body is the temple grrr... jesus you could read anything into it if you what to be that vauge and metaphorical.

3) The empty tomb. Extrabiblical historical sources confirm the Biblical account of tension between the Jesus and the Pharisees (a Jewish sect whose authority was threatened by Jesus' popularity and teaching). If you don't know the story, the Biblical gospels teach that it was the Pharisees who orchestrated Jesus' execution at the hands of the Romans. The point is, had the Pharisees wanted to disprove the Resurrection, which they certainly would have, they could simply have gone down to the tomb, seen Jesus' body rotting there, and then shown the people the fraud the disciples were attempting to perpetrate. They didn't. Instead they argued that the disciples had stolen Jesus' body.

hmmm -extrabiblical sources.. such as? - oh there was the shroud of turin... oh wait that was declared a fake...

see I'm not even desputing that the body was missing or anything -because even if there was evidence to support that beyond the bibile what evidence is there to support that jesus was even cruixified/lived/put in the tomb in the first place...

And again dave h :

I think that the whole xianity argument comesdown to faith. I just don't have that faith. I think god provides a nice secure mindset for people I wishI could belive it.

We could argue (and I have on many many occasions) about religion forever and it wouldn't make any difference. I went to a church school, did RE at school at GCSE, studied Xian theology at A-level and Moral ethics and I did philosophy at Uni I've discussed the topic at lengthmany times (ithink even on chockstone before )

Just like I will never be able to change your mind - I doubt you youwould turn mine. It all comes down to faith. -I just don't have it.
