  3. You don't get to make rules.

    One example of each.

    Historically: Luke tells us that when Jesus was born, Agustus was conducting his census (which was Josephs reason for returning home) and that Quirinius was governor of Syria. This is impossible if Herod was alive because the governorship of Quirinius in Syria didn't take place until as many as 10 years after the death of Herod. If Christ was born during the governorship of Quirinius then the fleeing from Herod to Egypt never occurred as Herod would have been long dead. If the mash up between Herod and Christ happened... Luke is a liar. This is the only place in the Gospel where one of the writers attempted to pinpoint the time in which Christ was born... and they got the historical details wrong.

    Scientifically: C'mon, we know for a fact the earth and all of its life did not come to being in 6 days. Even you have to admit that. And before you start... no one is going to claim that perhaps evolution or anything relating to an old Earth is how God brought creation about. Your book doesn't say that, your book says 6 days... and it's wrong.

  4. The Herod Quirinius thing is also a prime example of contradiction.

    Next, if you take into account the generations put forth in the bible plus a generous 6,000 years for creation (you know the whole passage about a day being a thousand years to God blah blah blah... which by the way is naturally inconsistent) (also being generous assuming some of those early generations did have life spans in the hundreds of years) the Bible presents a world history of about 10,000 to 16,000 years to present. We also know is this absolutely false. We have fossil records that blow this out of the water.

    Also there is no evidence of a global flood. So Noah's tale is not what it claims to be either.

    It's my thread. Play by the rules, or get ignored. Your choice. You had every opportunity to create a thread, but were too cowardly to do so.

    So I reiterate- THE RULE: Only ONE item, topic, subject and or theme at a time[, otherwise, screw you].

  7. I'm the coward yet you are the one threatening to take your ball and go home...

    This is something a coward says. You're already making plans of how to wiggle out of this. You'll just ignore people who's posts you don't like rather than engaging them head on.

    Well, you got balls. I'll give you that. I won't be able to participate in this thread as much as I would like this evening as I have two graduate level mid-terms coming up (Mangerial Accounting and Statistical Analysis). I will point out that you threw the gauntlet down on both history and scientific accuracy, so you will be dealing with multiple topics at the same time.

    I'll start with history.

    [Edit: I see Glock36Shooter already raised this one.]

    Supposedly, jesus was born during an empire wide census ordered by Caeser Augustus and carried out by local Roman governor Quirinius. This was also supposedly during the time of Herod the Great's rule. The problem is that Herod the Great died about ten years before Quirinius carried out the (local) census. Those two things couldn't have happened at the same time and if Herod was not king at the time then there could not have been a "massacre of the innocents" in Bethlehem. If Herod was king then the Quirinius's census wasn't happening and there would not have been a reason for Joseph and Mary to travel to Bethlehem.

    The census itself is problematic because there is no record of Caesar Augustus ever ordering an empire wide census. Quirinius's census was local only. It also introduces another problem as there would not have been a Roman census under Herod's rule because Herod would have collected his own taxes and paid tribute to Rome himself. Not until after his death did Rome step in and start collecting taxes in the region directly.

    As for science.

    Enough said.

    Oh my, we are becoming upset aren't we? You'll do much better in life if you realize that you just can't dicate rules to other people. I know that runs contrary to your theistic worldview, but that worldview is archaic and obsolete anyway and you'd be better off without it.

  11. Imagine the logistics of that. Everyone has to stop what they're doing and walk to the city of their births to register for a census. What if they didn't? How would anyone know? Wouldn't it have been simpler and more accurate to have local officials count the people in the cities where they lived. The census story is obviously made up to have Jesus born in Bethlehem.

    Quirinius may have twice ruled over/governed Syria, once around 7 BC and then again once more around around 7 AD, which this supposition is wholly supported by certain other inscriptions from that timeline.

    Simply put, Luke's word pròtos is in recollection of the first census in 7 BC, rather than the one you are referring to which took place in 7 AD.

    Anymore supposed problems?

    Are you planning on having a discussion or will you be following past practice and simply declaring things true and refusing to consider or address any evidence to the contrary?
     
  14. More so than that... it is obvious that whoever wrote it... was not an actual witness. Not just to the birth of christ... but to the times themselves.

    It'd be like me writing of the time when the terrorists crahsed planes into the towers... when Reagan was president and Smashing Pumpkins just released Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. You would question if I was even around during this time in history.

    Well, you hadn't even addressed all the problems presented in the first post, but on this point you are mistaken. From 12-1BC, Quirinius was leading a military campaign in Galatia (modern day Turkey).

    What evidence is there for the earlier term as governor of Syria? How do you reconcile this supposed term with his known presence in Galatia during the last decade BCE?
    What evidence is there for such a census? Is there any record of a census being taken in Palestine in 7 BCE, as there is for the one in 7 CE? Is there any record of people being required to return to their ancestral homes, as the Bible claims, in either 7 BCE or 7 CE?
     

  17. No he didn't. Varus was governor of Syria up until Herod's death. Quirinuis was a politician for many years. But he did not become governor of Syria until AFTER Herod's death.

    And it's hard to be governor of Syria when you are busy fighting a war in Turkey.
     
  20. I just did a search of the KJV and this guy Quirinius is not mentioned. Not even in Luke!
