I'm sure you find it difficult to believe, but I have done so. I have also done an extensive study of the history of the time, the texts in question, apocryphal texts, secondary sources, etc.
Now, how much reading have you done of sources which dispute what you believe? Have you ever seriously considered any alternate viewpoints?
And you?? You see it as it IS, I take it?
Obviously, Rush is an embarrassment to conservatism and he should slink away into obscurity.(at least according to the evos on this site)
There are also the Vedas and the Norse sagas. So?
There is corroborating non Biblical verification.
There is archaelogical verification.
There is also archaeological refutation. For instance, the Exodus and the conquest of Canaan as depicted in the Bible are not supported by archaeology.
There were eyewitnesses to the events that were still alive when the manuscripts were around who did not dispute the events.
Within the Bible. That's asking the source to verify the source. It's rather circular reasoning, don't you think?
The texts themselves point to their authenticity, in that they are not whitewashed nor 'enhanced.' (You don't write about your own betrayal and severe weakness if you want to promote your own philosophy........a test of authenticity that the Gospels pass).
Sure you do. That's the great drama of it all. Classical writing and mythology is full of betrayals and setbacks -- and like the Bible, everything turns out all right in the end.
You've not really done anything other than say "it is because I say it is."
RUSH: I'm just going to tell you why I don't believe this stuff.
RUSH: I believe in Creation.
RUSH: I believe in God.
RUSH: I believe that the idea that human beings have the ability to destroy what we couldn't create if we had to. No human being. Start from scratch. We can't even explain the existence of the earth, scientifically. We've got to go back to something called the Big Bang, and then we've got to try to make guesses as to we were all spermazoid, promozoics. We came out of the ocean. We walked four legs and two legs, but nobody really knows for sure. We have these theories. There were the other day some theory was just debunked big time and I don't remember off the top of my head what it is, but the idea if you look at this planet and you look at all the changes this planet has undergone that we can document historical for thousands of years, the forces that cause change on this planet dwarf the combined efforts of all human beings today. We couldn't any more move a continent. We couldn't any more destroy a mountain. We couldn't any more drain an ocean. We couldn't any more destroy ozone. We couldn't any more raise the temperature if we were freezing to death. We couldn't steer a hurricane away from where it's headed. We can't stop a thunderstorm. We can't make a clear sky rain. We can't do one thing climatologically that we wish we could do when we're faced with disaster or when we're faced with drought. We can't make it stop raining. We can't cause it to rain. We can't raise the sea level. We can't drain a river. We can't fill a river. We can't create the water out of nothing that will fill a river that used to run robustly and now is dried up for other economic reasons or evolutionary reasons. We can't do any of these things. We don't have the capacity. We don't have the wherewithal. We don't have the knowledge. We don't have the equipment. We're basically a bunch of passengers along for the ride on this planet. The idea that we can destroy this is simply above my ability to comprehend. Look at how Eileen Collins, the shuttle astronaut, spoke of how "thin" the atmosphere is.
CALLER: Ha ha ha. I know.
Continue reading from this point that's about midway through the article. Rush gives an outstanding apologia for the existence of God.
Thanks for the ping!
It really doesn't seem like it was that long ago that I was in school. It's hard to believe that I'm over two billion years old, but I guess I am. You can't argue with "science".
LOLOLOL! Thank you for the chuckle!
Thanks, x. That's nice to see spoken over the public airwaves.
STEVEN WRIGHT: "My theory of evolution is that Darwin was adopted."
Ya can't be right about everything, all of the time. As much as I like Rush, I agree with him maybe 85% of the time.
"and if you put a source of atomic chlorine into the stratosphere, in the presence of particles upon which it can react with ozone, it will destroy the ozone."
Specify a 'source' of atomic chlorine which will continuously gernerate that flow and a source of certain particles which, in combination with atomic chlorine, will destroy the ozone, and it's source, the sun.
