Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all!

May the Lord grant you the knowledge of his risen son this holiday season,

  1. 1. Wrong Holiday. At least you could have thrown out the “Mithras was born on December 25th” line. Come on Joe! Throw in a little effort!

    2. Mithras didn’t shed blood for me. I don’t know if you caught the Barker/White debate. Worth a listen and a good place to start. I’d possibly recommend reading Edwin Yamauchi as well (i.e. “Assyria and the Bible”), if you’ve never done actual “read a relevant book” study on the whole “Christ is Mithras” idea beyond reading the “ex-confused-Christian” atheist evangelist crowd like Barker, Lenaire, Loftus, etc. or watching Zeitgeist.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Joe!

  2. Hi there Mr. Unger. You made such a big deal in our discussion on Amazon under Christian Rock about me laying out the biggest argument/Bible passage/whatever that broke my faith. Maybe it wasn’t entirely clear to you, but I settled on Exodus 21. I could never believe in a god who proclaimed that it’s OK for a master to kill his slave because the slave is only his master’s money. Do you think it was right of “God” to equate people with money? Still interested in your response. If you still refuse to answer I’ll just assume you don’t have a good one and that you have conceded defeat. I hope you are not choosing to bury your head in the sand while pretending the Bible is infallible and refusing to examine the arguments when they get tough.

  3. Rich,

    You mom may not have told you that it’s not nice to chase people around the web and harass them; it’s rude and makes one appear a little crazy. Online debates on aren’t some people’s biggest concerns in life. I have a job, am finishing up a masters degree, I have family and church committments and I’m currently going through ordination preparation work. Forgive me if I don’t respond to you on your timeline, your majesty.

    I’ll answer you when I have time, not when you desire.

    Next time you come on here and throw down slander and accusation, I’ll edit your posts to be about knitting. If you can’t be nice, I’ll help.
