Thanks Dawkins… he should’ve stuck to being a Biologist instead of a weird old guy activist.

Where *did* you get your education?

I was going by established history. But, if you’re going by archeology-only then you can make the argument for 1st century / dead sea scrolls, with everything before that being fictional. I’m ok w
ith that.

I was just running with Terry’s “Bronze Age” thing, which I thought was silly. Also, you should distrust me anyhow because I’m not agreeing automatically. You don’t necessarily know WHY but distrusting people who disagree is usually wise tongue emoticon

I like how members of a religious faction stick together to advise each other against the enemies of their religion. As an unaffiliated agnostic, this cracks me up.

We have access to the same Google, but I looked it up as you requested.

I was wrong. I had forgotten that Psalm 137 specifically was about a pissed off Jewish people and it’s dating is very specific. It’s not one of the ancient ones a
t all.

Once it ceased to be “current events”, Babylon became Rome, or the early Church Fathers (the monks and stuff) of the 3rd-6th centuries interpreted it in a mystical way, which is the interpretation I was thinking of.

I don’t know about jewish mysticism but I suspect they did much the same.

aw, y’all are no fun. I can get New Atheist and Fundie Christian alike pissed off at me using the same sentences. I never see any Fundie Christians on the Internet anymore; I think they left the Internet to stockpile weapons or something. Plenty of Fundie atheists tho’.
