    That is because you are grasping at straws. We know why that mountain does not match the myth.

    The Bible has many, many authors and stories have been combined and rewritten over time.. Most prophecy is after the fact.

    I know, but some insist that they be taken literally. Strangely none of those that demand this seem to be able to understand that they are calling their version of God a liar.

    Its hard to believe that adults don't question these stories... Most children do by age 10 or 12.

    Wyatt is even recognized as a liar by his old sect. He used to be a Seventh Day Adventist. And they are literalists. When fellow literalists call one of their own a fraud there really is no doubt.

    World Net Daily pulled one off in 1998 about the world's largest oil reserves being found in Israel with a water witch and scripture in the hands of one Hayseed Stephens. Then for a decade WND sold stock to little old Christian ladies and never sank a single bore hole.

    At best it only confirms those specific parts. Pontius Pilatus existing does nothing to validate anything about Jesus beyond execution.

    Not about the Apocalypse but other things, other stuff written in the Bible a long time ago.
    Prophecies written during the time of the apostles then saw fulfillment, hundreds or a thousand years later.

    Archeological discoveries could be lost, destroyed and doubted [as inconclusive or a mere fabrication] but the writing on the wall is another thing. Let me lift this writing from the Douay-Rheims Bible [The Douay–Rheims Bible is a translation of the Bible from the Latin Vulgate into English made by members of the Catholic seminary English College, Douai, France. It is the foundation on which nearly all English Catholic versions are still based. Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA) - Version Information - BibleGateway.com ] and in:

    1 Timothy 4:1-3 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)

    Now the Spirit manifestly saith, that in the last times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to spirits of error, and doctrines of devils,

    Speaking lies in hypocrisy, and having their conscience seared,

    Forbidding to marry, to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving by the faithful, and by them that have known the truth.


    This specific prophecy was written by apostle Paul to Timothy [before 64 or 67 AD] - was this fulfilled?
    Does it give you goosebumps - that this people will surrender themselves to spirits of error and teachings of demons?? That these people continually lie, a bunch of hypocrites and bears no conscience???

    Was this specific writing of apostle Paul guided by the Holy Spirit - became a reality???

    If you agree that this became a reality then this one is just too big to ignore as evidence.
    Too big to ignore as historical and prophetic accuracy of the Bible.

    But wait there's more....

    There's two terms that you will often hear atheists repeat that comes to mind. "Evidence" and "Cherry Pick."

    There is evidence that what the Bible says happened happened, and then there is the evidence that you can't test, don't fully understand but are desperately in need of denying the possibility of due to a fixed perspective.

    It's actually interesting from the perspective of the outsider. It manifests itself as a need to have an explanation for everything. Even if the explanation may be wrong or in constant flux. Almost as if you live in a fragile box and the threat of no explanation is greeted with a surprisingly hostile reaction.

    And you have not come up with a reason not to trust the Bible.

    I do realize you don't like the Bible, but not liking something does not make it untrue.

    Not really meaning the end of the world stuff.

    The words spoken by the Christ and written by his apostles - and after many many years saw their fulfillment.

    Example:

    Matthew 23:9 New International Version (NIV)
    And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.

    This one was one of the teachings of my Lord Jesus Christ and here he made a prohibition - do not call anyone on earth father. He meant a stranger, and unrelated to anyone.

    He was not speaking about one's biological father since the Lord Jesus said: "honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’” Matthew 19:19

    This teaching is unheard of during Jesus time in Israel. The Jewish people do not really call a stranger "father" as a title. They would call on a preacher, either as a rabbi or teacher. The title "father" is out of place, BUT people started calling other people "father" many centuries after the apostles died.

    Isn't this writing in the Bible too big to ignore as evidence?
    Evidence of the historical and prophetic accuracy of the Bible?

    What "teaching of demons" are you talking about? In fact I do not see any of that. I guess it is not the last days after all. Whew!
