      If we do the math working backwards, the year now is 2011 AD. (Anno Domini)(After Death). It is believed that Jesus died, was crucified at the age of 33 which would mean he was born 2044 years ago or 44BC.
      He was born in the town of Bethlehem but Joseph his earthly father was from Nazareth, where they made their home.

        Wow, that's amazing considering Nazareth never existed in 44BC or prior. smile

          Actually Dave is right. Recent archeological discoveries confirm a village about the size the Nazareth referenced in the scriptures would have been, in the vicinity it was believed to be. They have also found evidence it was indeed called Nazareth. Kind of like there's a town of the same name in every state. You were looking at the wrong town when you made that statement.

              Another one. It was bigger and better, but the story I heard was that they knew, from the beginning, that their legacy would always be overshadowed by the fact that the smaller town had a claim to fame inasmuch as it was the birthplace of the One.  So they tried to wipe any evidence of it's existence from the earth. It is simply by the Grace of God that we have finally recovered the truth.

              I'm sorry. That's the explanation to another story. My bad. The truth is it's simply another town by the same name.

                Try history and archaeology instead of hearsay. smile

                    Yes, I'm quite sure believers will deny the past occurred, much like many more of the facts they deny. smile

            Sure, they found pottery and ceramics dating back to the Bronze age many centuries before the alleged Christ. The problem is that all of those towns and villages were destroyed by the Assyrians in 720 BC. smile

              Not true, not true. Either way you look at it, whether we identify a place as being, in our minds, 'the place' it won't be a drop in the bucket to someone who doubts the account.

                What is that supposed to mean?



                In other words, we take on faith the discrepancy of the bibles claims to be "a drop in the bucket"

                Sorry, but when biblical claims are researched and found to be wanting, we can discard the claims as such and begin to understand the bible cannot be taken seriously, but instead should receive equal airtime alongside that of fables and myths. smile

                  Sure.equal airtime is a fair request, which I'm sure would be provided, if there were producers who stepped up to foot the bill.

        It seems to be a common thing that when someone asks a question, and "THE" correct answer is given, it is totaly ignored for the sake of continueing the arguement.

           How many people actually want an answer to their question?

      Hey jomine, I know I make fun of your ideas for threads, but I have to say this one was sounding kind of musical at the first. Why'd you stop the rhyme after Galilee?
