ARE U KIDDING?
Regarding http://ed5015.tripod.com/BBabelLinguistics24.htm It might all
just be natural? HUH?
So the Red Sea being parted may have just been
natural, and I suppose that goes for the creation of the universe in
Genesis, angels coming to Earth, plague after plague in Exodus.
you make absurd leaps like that, it shows you are stupid. You take the
Bible out of context. To even suggest that it's possible that it was
just natural is utterly dumb BECAUSE of the context of the events
It's as stupid as saying when you see planes leaving the
airport: Oh maybe those are just birds that evolved into large metal
looking things. Stop making dumb rationalizations.
WAS HE KIDDING?
Daniel Knight (#140, p. 4) thinks it absurd to look for natural
components in the miracles reported in the Bible and considers people
who do so “stupid”.
What I do is "test what is testable". This means I check statements in
the Bible by going to the scientific literature and to news reports
about new discoveries.
As regards alleged miracles, there too I examine whether any part of
the miracle story can be tested. A miracle which can be partly
scientifically confirmed is more plausible than a miracle story in
which nothing can be confirmed.
If Mr Knight considers investigation absurd he should tell that to
scientists, detectives, census workers and everyone else who
researches, collates information, or asks questions.
