"Indeed it is..." the area in which we disagree. I am agreeing with you. I won't bother trying to prove it.
That would be a waste of time because no one can prove that the bible is the truth. The area of disagreement is in that you choose to believe it is the truth and I do not. The more truthful expression would have to be "indeed, I believe it is the truth." which of course then allows for the observation that believing something to be true does not mean that it is actually the truth.
Any truthful person would acknowledge this as being the case and use language to express this, which is one reason why I turned my back on Christianity, because it is demonstrably not truthful and uses language to express untruthfulness which in turn produces untruthful behavior.
Well that is an interesting point of view you have there, that the myths were made manifest in order that Jesus could make them real at a later date.Um... does the Dionysus myth incorporate known historical figures, including local ones? Is it set in a particular time and place? Does it center on a man who is known to have lived? With a genealogy, which comes as a product of living among an established people group, who are still extant and distinct today, and re-established in their ancestral land as a nation, against all odds?
"In Christ, the myth became fact."
Precisely how the Romans would have designed it in order for the gullible people to adopt it as an 'actual truth' to cling to, no matter what.
No, Definitely true. There is no reason why belief in ancient myth, or that Jesus rose from the dead should have any bearing on ones ability to behave in a benevolent manner.Maybe true, as far as it goes.
The existence of the moon is true. Therefore there is no need to believe the moon exists.The main reason to believe ANYTHING, imho, is if it is TRUE.
Unfortunately the word believe and the word know have become conflated and this has lead to allowing the words to be used interchangeably.
You believe that the bible is TRUE because you want the bible to be true, but you don't KNOW that the bible is true.
That is the truth of the matter. You want it to be true, you are told to have faith in it being true, you equate the GOD of the bible as being the real deal, as you state your opinion is that the God of the Bible is the only candidate that 'checks all the boxes'.
Nothing belief based can ever truthfully be regarded as actually truth/true.
Your opinion based on your belief. There is no evidence that the story is truth, let alone how it could possibly help humanities situation if everyone believed in it. Even assuming that every Christian believed in it, that is ample enough numbers to study the affect the belief has on them as individuals and how that effects the world for the better.Which the Resurrection is. It is the greatest truth available to humanity.
What evidence we do have which is undeniable is the history of Christendom on the people of the planet, which - without going into the horrific details, amounts to one big support system for elitism and disparity - which continues to suppress humanity with its superstitions and two-faced hypocrisy.
Well it is an important observation and certainly I care as anyone seeking truthfulness would care. We don't need fables dressed up as 'truth' in order to entice us to be nice. It is that simple. It is simple observation that such fables taught as truth have not produced anything nice from those who believe in them. History shows us this. There is no truth in denying that.Can you be subjectively "nice", and not accept it? Sure, I guess. Who cares?
