    I may be religious and all, but you clearly cannot use the bible as support for a debate. What proof or credibility does it have? It simply has stories that Christianity believes in. That's it.

    My proof of God is mostly personal experiences, but here is a link on someone who did it in a way made more to be a proof

    if I copied down the wrong URL tell me, but I am pretty sure I didnt, I will double check when I am less tired, sounds like this debate is winding down though

    Yeah really a lot of talking to explain nothing. Oh miracles so far back they can't be proven and historical evidence. (No duh it was written a long time ago)

    I think this thread is winding down, too. With TheFightingPikachu so infrequent a participant, mattj is the only one to raise a sustained defense of his thesis, and it seems to be unanimously recognized that his debating methods are not conducive to helpful discussion - and the responses to him are not much more helpful, either. On top of that, it seems both sides raise questions that go unsatisfactorily answered according to some point of view or other, and we are not getting anywhere.

    Dunning is a welcome new addition, but I have to agree that the content of the discussions with him is his personal Christian faith rather than the merits or justifications of the Bible itself.

    And a final note: this thread has been a breeding ground for infractions because of the way some of the major players interact here. I'm just not interested in keeping up that amount of policing for a thread that isn't really working out well anyway. It's not cost-effective, imo.

    Maybe we'll have another big Christianity-related debate after this, but in the meantime let's take a breather.
