    Not true at all. I have been convinced of many things throughout my life. I don't blindly trust anything or anyone, though. I am not going to blindly believe someone who claims to have been healed by faith if I don't even know the person to be honest.

    It's the same way with news these days. You really have to take in a lot of media from both sides to get to the truth. Claims made have to be independently verified.

    All this must be rechecked, because I do not trust a skeptic. And I do not trust the Trump.

    Do they refer to C.Totten? Do they mention the Totten contribution? If not, then Nihilism nihilated the Totten.

    Totten is indeed referred to. It's pretty amazing/indicative that you expect people to read a 274 page book but can't be bothered checking summarised rebuttals.

    Why bother posting at all? You're just looking for an echo chamber.

    Quest,

    This bit of work has been heavily criticized and rejected by serious Christian apologists for quite some time. A similar retread of the story involving alleged NASA calculations surfaced some years later; it, too, has been put out to pasture by believers.
    Here's a link to an article, by Christian researchers, that puts the issue to bed.

    I'm the skeptic here.

    The author of the passage I quoted is, as I mentioned, a Christian and a scientist.

    To the best of my knowledge and understanding, neither he nor I is Donald Trump.

    But if you still want to allege that the earth stopped rotating for most of a day within human records, then you'll need to point us to evidence of the kinds of catastrophic result I mentioned. And If you're right, there must be literally billions of examples of such evidence, though I can't say I've noticed any.

    I don't have to - Socratic Berean gave a CHRISTIAN link debunking the book in his post # 49.

    The book is full of bull.

    But what is funny - is that no miracle took place here, and the shadow going backward on the shadow stairs - was probably a solar eclipse.

    They were well aware of when these took place, = thus Isaiah just had use the eclipse info to look like a prophet/seer.

    2Ki 20:8 And Hezekiah said unto Isaiah, What shall be the sign that the LORD will heal me, and that I shall go up into the house of the LORD the third day?

    I have info on the other verse saved somewhere, but I will have to look for it.

    Allow me to clarify. I do not argue that the Biblical account is incorrect, from the perspective of the author and audience (no writer composes in a vacuum, after all, and we must apply principles of sound exegesis to correctly understand the account), but recent efforts to explain what happened (scientifically) have fallen short...so far.

    Please quote your favorite supporting paragraph from the book... Copy and paste - summarize - dowhatever you want to do.

    I think all of the readers here would be very interested in finding out what you thought was the most convincing part of the book that you obviously read so diligently.

    Actually a solar eclipses make perfect sense for the shadow going backward and then back again.

    As I said, I have info for the other one saved somewhere as well. I just have to find it. I think it had something to do with the way the Jewish day is split and the added fanciful language.

    In other words something like the day was so wondrous it seemed to stand still. And defeating such an army in that amount of time is a wonder.
