Quote# 63415

Mt? Sinai has been located in Saudi Arabia which, in that local, properly called Median. It's the largest Mt in the area. It is topped by obsidian, a melted rock. Apparently external heat was applied to the top of this mountain. It's called Jebel Al Lawz. It's proof that God's presence was on top of that mountain and melted it.

"It's proof that God's presence was on top of that mountain and melted it."

No. It isn't.

It's called Jebel Al Lawz

Did you mean 'Jebel Al Lulz'.

I thought Mt Sinai was in Egypt? I realise it's all mumbo-jumbo land to you folks, but...

You seem to have no understanding of geology or geography.

Mount Sinai rocks were formed in the late stage of the Arabian-Nubian Shield's (ANS) evolution. Mount Sinai displays a ring complex that consists of alkaline granites intruded into diverse rock types, including volcanics. The granites range in composition from syenogranite to alkali feldspar granite. The volcanic rocks are alkaline to peralkaline and they are represented by subaerial flows and eruptions and subvolcanic porphyry. Generally, the nature of the exposed rocks in Mount Sinai indicates that they originated from different depths. (M. G. Shahien, Geol. Dept., Beni Suef, Egypt)

nothing about obsidian. This biblethumper is so ignorant he never even looked up anything on the mountain, probably just heard this from some youth pastor and never dared question the 'fact'

It's proof that God's presence was on top of that mountain and melted it.

No it's not!

I could explain why that is, but you don't have the faculties to comprehend the explanation.

It's topped with melted rock and is "properly called Median?" Are you sure you haven't just discovered a blacktopped highway?

PW, I don't think the modern day Mt Sinai has any connection with the Biblical myth. The Biblical Mt Sinai/Horeb is clearly an active volcano and the Sinai peninsular isn't in the least bit volcanic.

All this is proof of is your stupidity.

6/24/2009 4:32:48 PM


Yeah, that's proof for sure. In fact, we now have proof that God's presence was near many volcanoes.

Saudi Arabia =/= Egypt, you fucktard.

Obsidian is an igneous rock, which is solidified molten rock. No "melting" necessary.

(1) The modern Mt. Sinai isn't topped by obsidian.

(2) The modern Mt. Sinai isn't necessarily the site of the Bible's meeting of Moses and God.

(3) Nothing in the Bible remotely suggests that God melted rocks with His burning bush.

(4) If God burned hot enough to melt the rocks of Mt. Sinai extensively, why didn't the heat kill Moses?

Stop making shit up that isn't in the Bible.

That wacky God! Lighting his farts again!

6/24/2009 6:13:43 PM


Does not compute!

6/24/2009 6:19:31 PM


Mt. Sinai is in Egypt. And I want citations on your claim that there is obsidian on the top.

6/24/2009 6:34:54 PM


Which explains why the Sinai peninsula is located in modern day Egypt...


6/24/2009 7:10:38 PM


I think you mean Mount Cyanide. Now take some, please.

6/24/2009 7:29:28 PM


Man, this guy should hook up with Ray Comfort, think of the nonsensical arguments for god they could create!

6/24/2009 7:40:26 PM


It's "Midian".

And obsidian deposits are not proof of the presence of god, they're proof of the presence of volcanic activity at some point in history.
