Evening all Are you aware that, as charming and convincing as he may appear when delivering his lectures, David Rohl's revised chronology is not supported by 2010 carbon dating results and is rejected by mainstream Egyptologists, with the somewhat notable exception of Professor Eric Hornung, Professor Emeritus at Basel university. Edited: to correct a typo.

The tone of YOUR discourse changed when you wrongly accused me of indirectly addressing you. Such arrogance and so presumptuous! Shake the dust from your sandals on your way out, sweet cheeks!

Mark wrote: QuoteNo, I did not reply to the video, let alone look at it. A shame, for it's the kind of thing you consider miraculous or paranormal. After all, I had the courtesy to watch the fat monk in a vat of oil tricking the public into regarding him as somehow extraordinary or blessed. Play nice, Mark :)

Mark Susan had quoted my response to you which ended "It really is fascinating stuff!" Because of the various sub-threads and the fact our conversation had progressed since the post she linked, I responded to Susan and was not, as you wrongly and mistakenly believe, addressing you indirectly. I simply explained how you had responded to the material with which you were presented. T

Mark Please drop the condescending, patronising tone: it really is unbecoming. The reason I did not discuss Fatima is because it is off-topic. I also think that the idea of a 'spinning sun' is not miraculous in nature. I do not have an explanation for it because I am not a scientist, I know nothing about meterology and weather phenomena - and, I suspect, nor do you. However, I think it much

The weakness in your own counter-argument is the phrase "some scholars". Surely, Christians themselves do not doubt the truth of the Bible - or do they, Ray? Do you yourself doubt that Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt? If so, you must doubt the revelation on Mt Sinai, the veracity of the 10 Commandments themselves. In fact, you must doubt every word of it if this is so.

Thanks Susan. Mark said he thought that this was my reading / interpretation / conclusion of the ancient Egyptian pharaonic divine birth myth. He is mistaken: it is the conclusion of various eminent academics whose expertise is in the period immediately preceding the birth of Christianity, in a place that was a stone's throw from Jerusalem. If the Bible story of the Exodus is to be consi

I know very little about astrology - as for 'charts', are you referring to astrological birth charts - like, 'Your sun and moon are in Virgo'? If so, thankfully as little as Joe Average. Might I ask why? I have read a little about astrotheology, if that is what you're curious to know. :)

Thanks for your response, Mark. In respect of wanting to know a little more about Queen Hatshepsut's 'divine birth' relief, depicted at Deir-el-Bahri, here: The "Nativity Scene" of Jesus' birth, as described in the Gospel according to Luke, also has its roots in much older, established Ancient Egyptian mythology. This is supported by actual temple reliefs and the scholarly opinion

On balance of probability, it is much, much more likely that Jesus was fathered by a biological man than by a Divine creator. Virgin birth is a feature common to a wide range of religious traditions practiced by ancient cultures which flourished for over a thousand years before this one. Can you, or would you, dispute or deny that other historical figures such as the Babylonian god Ea whose

Thanks for your response Mark. The "absolute equality of Mary to the apostles" is evident at the end of the Gospel of Mary itself. It's worth a read and one can only live in hope that a more complete copy of that text is discovered at some point in the future, as was the case when the cache of gnostic texts was unearthed at Nag Hammadi, complementing fragments of incomplete gospels.

Mark You might begin by reading the gnostic gospel of Mary Magdalene. Most scholars have agreed a composition date of the second century AD which makes it at least contemporaneous with some of the datings of the canonical gospels. Information about the codex and the text of the gospel in English can be found here: Magdalene is also referenced in the gnostic gospel of Philip as Jesus' &q

Pope Gregory - 591 AD - misinterpreted the account of the Mary whom he declared a prostitute, albeit a repentant on, stating: "It is clear, brothers, that the woman previously used the unguent to perfume her flesh in forbidden acts..." Moron. Papal misreading of the highest order. Deliberately discrediting the important role and place she evidently held in Jesus' affections, b

If you accept the conservative estimate that homo sapiens has walked the Earth for 100, 000 years at least then for 98, 000 of those years all humans were pagan in the Christian sense of the word (i.e. unchristian). Most humans were most definitely 'pagan', Ray. And some still are.

That was just rude, Ray. Susan asked how her interactions, her humanity, selfless behaviours are somehow different, if at all, to your so-called 'Christian way'. You might have afforded her the decency of a civil response. After all, though I consider religious belief to be the product of a mixture of conceit, naivety, ignorance and sheer foolishness, I am still capable of conducting civ

The narrative of Jesus in the NT is a re-working of the story of Joseph in the OT. Here are some obvious parallels, far too many for a person to claim 'coincidence': * Beloved of His father * Envied and hated without a cause * a root out of dry ground * he told that one day he would rule * accused of being a fantasist / daydreamer / delusional (choose most apt) * sent by the father to

... Or, if you claim to have done so, might I suggest you read it again, this time more slowly. Your rebuttal of Darwin, claiming: QuoteHe assumed that populations were stable even over long periods of time. is proven to be correct by the scientific research in the paper when they demonstrate how their analysis has revised the time frame from when the species diverged into the two species

Hello Mark The idea of a living incarnation of a God who is killed and who rises again is not unique at all. An epithet of ancient Egyptian kings was 'The Living Horus' - a god incarnated in human form. The belief in Horus as the god resurrected at dawn, Re-Horakhty as the mid-day sun and Osiris as the 'dead' sun - symbolically, of course, once it had slipped beneath the horizon - is jus

Hi Susan I cannot and would not speak for Ray but as a fellow atheist or humanist, the only difference is the ascription of those behaviours to Jesus, the Christ. For me, the only difference between myself and the most pious theist is my belief in one less God. As crass as that might sound - and I am being sincere - it is the truth. Amen!

Ray I’m sure you’ll know that the Easter tradition you celebrate has its roots in a Saxon pagan holiday involving celebration of the arrival of Spring to a deity known as Eastra. The sacrificial element no doubt appealed to Christians who adopted it for their very own ‘sacrificial lamb’ You can read more here: Happy Eastra

The term ‘atheism’ formally entered the English language in the 17th century but examples I cited from Indian philosophical schools of thought dating back 1000 years earlier openly and completely rejected notions of a God. Likewise, Buddhism rejects the idea of a supreme deity. Those are most certainly not examples of agnosticism Ray
