    We've been inundated by insincerity claiming 'sincere.' IF you are sincere, I can talk you out of atheism. It is untenable. Most atheists here on TOL will NOT listen. They don't WANT to listen. I know there is a God. NOT ONE has ever had the fortitude, sincerity, or honesty to ask. Why? Easy: They don't care and have NO intention of wanting to see if it is true or not.

    Are you the exception to the rule? It'd be nice, but you have to realize we've been inundated by insincerity and casual indifference if not outright expressed disdain. Is there a 'point' to such conversation, bashing, debate?

    Whatever bed you make, that's the one you have to lie in at night. Welcome to TOL. I hope it is a profitable and worthwhile exchange. This is 'life' to me, no passing fancy. Vulcan's had a religion, oddly enough.

    You seem to be always posting falsehoods.

    It makes me wonder how you came to such a combination of arrogance and delusion.

    Of course the story of the Good Samaritan is a fictional story Jesus told to make an important point.

    It is George that cannot being himself to say that the story of the Good Samaritan is not literal history. The fact that Jesus told it is literal history, while the events in the story are not. I wonder why George can’t acknowledge that.

    Why do you call me George?

    It should be obvious to you that there are two different name stories here.
    One is George and one is Affleck.
    They surely cannot be talking about the same person because they are both obviously different.
    They can't possibly explain different aspects pertaining to the naming of the same individual.

    But arguing where the story takes place?

    Honestly? I've never seen you ask him BUT you seem to OFTEN accuse people of not answering you, even when you've asked nothing. I've no idea why you hang out on a fundamental board. Perhaps something here strokes your pride Nothing else worth you being here for. There is no such thing as dialogue between you and anybody here. It is just posture posture posture, argue argue argue. I can't think what would draw you OR keep your interest. There is no meeting of minds.

    See post 46.

    I asked George if he thought the Good Samaritan was a historical figure. He has yet to answer.

    I explained why I don’t think the Good Samaritan was a historical figure.

    So, if you haven’t seen me ask him anything, it is because you haven’t read what I posted and just decided to insult instead.

    Interesting.

    Any reason not to engage in real discussion seems to be acceptable to you.

    The second creation story says man was formed before any plants had sprung up.

    Strange that you deny the facts of the scriptural text.

    There is no second creation story.
    You are referring to an expanded view of Day 6 given in Gen. 2 which you mistakenly think is a different story.
    Many have made the same mistake.

    The problem is your refusal to acknowledge that Genesis 2:5-6 is clearly speaking about cultivated fields and not plants growing in the wild.
