Can't say I disagree...since I don't know what the fuck he just said.

Uhh... wasn't the bible written by the disciples and other people who supposedly witnessed Christs life?

Anyone with even a basic grasp of human nature knows that nobody's gonna get universal love, especially not someone who is disrupting the order of the world as they know it (even if in a good way).
It doesn't take much to guess that a religious leader with a radically different view of things than a lot of people is going to get bashed. Stating the blindingly obvious doesn't count as a fulfilled prophecy, sorry.

I have no clue what this guy is saying.

He is saying that because he thinks that humans wouldn't prophesize the prophecies written in the bible, it must not have been written by humans. The only problem is that he doesn't realize that people don't all think identically, and that it would have been relatively easy for one(or a group of) nut job(s) to buck the curve and prophesize the stuff in the bible, and write about it, or have someone write about it. I mean how sane/sober are you if you are seeing people walking on water and flaming bushes that speak(assuming that atheists are correct, and there is no god)?

Besides that, Kimball, people know better than to think someone who's proposing a radical change in your worldview is going to get a massive standing ovation (as Carico seems to think people would have said).
People don't like changes - especially people in a position of power, because change is more likely to move them down than up. Accepting Jesus's words would have been a big change, and he was pretty clear on what he thought of a lot of the people in power (the Pharisees, for instance). Is it any wonder he was misliked?

I think that's more a catch-22 situation. Not proof of divine inspiration.

CousinTed: Shhh. Carico is convinced AND she's a Christian. Therefore she is right and you are wrong.

Is the Holy spirit perhaps short sighted because he got the number of legs on an insect wrong. Also bats are not birds.
