Check out this one site then: "External evidence that the gospels are authentic." I wish I could read it to you and make it easier for you!


Hey troll. Provide links, and particularity express an argument instead of just asserting. Don't expect others to do your job for you.

Are you r*******? Just put that exact quote I gave in the "web search" on your computer, and like magic it will show up on your screen!

You've been played with long enough.
Time for the ignore button.

Not a bad idea. How many times do you have to explain things to a lazy person about what each of our responsibilities are to do our own work in supporting what we assert. He wants to assert things and then expects everyone else to find the evidence that supports his claims. I don't think I have seen anyone so lazy before.

I bet he also doesn't know that search engines don't always give everyone the same result.

I think that is the best choice to make when dealing with people like this. I have him on ignore too.

I gave you the exact site name, and it only would take a few seconds at the most to get it! Now, who is lazy? I am on other sites also with people who really want to learn about the gospel, and I don't have too much time to devote to people on Mormon sites who are not interested in Mormonism anyway.

You are the lazy one, and I mean in the extreme. Do you even know how to use the link feature? You also missed what I said about internet searches not giving everyone the same results. You are both lazy and ignorant. Stop expecting people to do your job for you.

Good luck with that. It usually doesn't take long for people like you to see that people here know more about it then you, and already understand the church is not what it claims. This is why you fail so badly when asked to give actual evidence.

Themis, those are your opinions based on a limited knowledge of science and a very limited knowledge of theology!

Are they? My limited knowledge based on your posts is clearly not as limited as your own. I did suggest ways to learn more about it.

How does one who is so ignorant of the sciences determine if someone else is ignorant. It seems you would need to have at least a basic understanding of it to make this determination. If you like bring up any topic of science that relates to religion like the flood, young earth, Book of Abraham, Book of Mormon, etc. You might want to start a new thread though. If you like I can start one.

I think we are both somewhat ignorant of the sciences, however, I am very familiar with Mormon doctrine.

I admit I don't know everything, but I do have a good basic understanding of the sciences. More then enough to know you basically know nothing of it. I don't mean to be rude, but it is just the facts. Have you taken any courses in university in geology, chemistry, physic, biology?

As for Mormon doctrine I know it very well. I suppose that is why I had to show you the church's position about the flood.

i know, right? let him get away with this and then he will start providing references where you have to sign up for an account, then search the site for whatever dubious material has been posted - what is it with these guys that refuse to provide direct links as citations?

:lol:

I gave you the same access to financial information that the Church gives members so why you complaining?

who is complaining? simply agreeing with your sentiment about people who do not provide citations on this board for their claims.

Actually it is. Ignorant is not an insult but a statement of his knowledge of science. Lazy also is not an insult but a statement of fact about his unwillingness to back up his claims and expect everyone else to his research for him. I am trying to get him to use things like the quote feature and especially the link feature. He has not stated whether he knows how to use them when asked.
