Well I guess I owe you an apology as I used "Eleusian Mystery rites" as my search term. And I admit while I have read your posts I don't usually check all the links because if I had, it may have sunk in better. What I have been doing here, is going back and addressing things and searching them out k...

Ish - you keep claiming all these massive displays of evidence. I did a search - there were exactly five mentions of Eleusinian rites on this entire board including the first time on this thread in your list of points.

What am I supposed to do - read your mind?

Okay, this is officially one of the funniest things I've ever seen anyone post. Do you know what the word transcribed means FM? :lol: :lol: Give me a break seeker - could you not figure out my meaning? I was accused of copying from another site.

Then it should be no problem for you to find clear examples, plainly stated that support your side as I have done. While you try to characterize me in a derogatory fashion I have played no such game with you. Instead I have given you plain and clear evidence. Your evidence is out of context quotati...

Ishtar - your point no. 6 has appeared for the first time in this thread as I can find no reference to the Eleusian Mystery rites anywhere in this thread and only a single reference from John in another thread. Please elaborate as it appears to be a cult centered on the principle of harvest and spri...

Monk, you need to know when you're beaten. You need to see that your house is sinking into the sand upon which you so unwisely built it. There are none so blind as those who will not see, as they say. So instead, you come swaggering back on to answer only one of my eight questions with a copy and p...

Seeker - how long should we continue this tit for tat? In my opinion your style is to misrepresent yourself and me. You claim to be a biblical scholar and yet you disrepect and revile the supposed object of your study which makes it clear your purpose is not to study it but rather seek out controver...

Well Monk, this has all been very nice! Excuse me while I pass the collection plate. Then Mrs Pettigrew can play us all out with an organ burst of Onward Christian Soldiers, and we can all join you afterwards on the vicarage lawn for tea and scones. Right, now that you've stopped preaching your the...

seeker, imo, it serves nothing to be condescending toward christian beliefs. It is clear you don't really understand the beliefs of christians and hebrews. Still, I don't find you as obtuse as many atheists and non-believers who only parrot their religious points of view without doing any primary re...

However Jesus said: Matthew 19:17 If you want to enter into life, keep the commandments. So we have Paul using hermeneutics to twist the meaning of the simple clear direct statement in Matthew. Even Revelation 20:12-13 chimes in with ",,,and they were judged every man according to their works. " Th...

In several previous posts, some posters have delighted in pointing out the perceived violence and murderous nature of God which once again demonstrates a lack of basic understanding of his purpose and true nature. This is critical, imo, in illustrating the alledged equivalence of the Demiurge and YH...

I notice you didn't address the fact that the Gospels have Jesus saying that faith alone is not enough, I guess that means you think Paul trumps Jesus. Since you are attempting to refute my claim with the gospels, I will use the gospels as well in my future posts. Further since I have posted eviden...

Aquileia was situated on the Natissa River about 8 miles north of the Adriatic sea and since it was the ...
