  • Why do we celebrate Christmas, when herod died in 4BCE?

    Herod died in 4BCE, so could not have been around for the birth of Christ, when the Roman census of the Palestine - Judea took place in 6CE, 10 years later.

    Herod died in 4BCE, so could not have been around for the birth of Christ, when the Roman census of the Palestine - Judea took place in 6CE, 10 years later. When Herod died - many women were raped by Roman soldiers during the revolt of Sepphoris. Herod Antipas chose this site in 4 B.C. as the capital of his government. Its across the valley from the tiny hamlet of Nazareth. If you read the Bible, you will come to the same conclusion as I do, that Joseph was not the father of Jesus. I choose not to swallow the god story - what you choose, however - has to fit in with the historical facts, and Jesus to have to be persecuted by Herod, must have been born in 4BCE, and he would not have been born in Bethlehem. The Romans did not move people around for their census data.

  • Whats the biggest myth about aircraft you have heard?

    Ok, yesterday- to my shame, I said the Russian Mi-24 HIND helicopter could fly without rotating its main rotor - and by pitching the rotor's propellers against the direction of movement, thus effectively working like an airplane's wings. Also the pilot can vector downwards the turbine's engines, giving it partial lift. It was a joke,... show more
    Ok, yesterday- to my shame, I said the Russian Mi-24 HIND helicopter could fly without rotating its main rotor - and by pitching the rotor's propellers against the direction of movement, thus effectively working like an airplane's wings. Also the pilot can vector downwards the turbine's engines, giving it partial lift. It was a joke, but some guy got really worked up by it, So anybody who understands a helicopter rotor will know that even in a fully articulated rotor system, you can not have a wing effect. when there is a problem, Helicopters can to a limited extent -glide without power by using the momentum in the rotors, while using downward motion to force air through them. The main rotor acts like a windmill and turns. This technique is known as autorotation. A transmission connects the main rotor to the tail rotor so that all flight controls are available after engine failure. Autorotation can allow a pilot to make an emergency landing. But do you know of any bigger myths?

  • So what about Nazareth: Dodgy Story, Dodgy Geography?

    The original gospel writers refrained from inventing a childhood, youth or early manhood for JC because it was not necessary to their central drama of a dying/reborn sun-god.

    The original gospel writers refrained from inventing a childhood, youth or early manhood for JC because it was not necessary to their central drama of a dying/reborn sun-god. But as we know, the story grew with the telling, particularly as the decades passed and the promised redeemer and judge failed to reappear. The re-writer of the Gospel of Mark, revising his text sometime between 140 and 150 AD, introduces the name of the city only once in chapter one with these words: "And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee ..." (Mk I, 9) From then on the name is almost forgotten. We may reasonably suspect that all four references in Mark are a later interpolation. We can trace the subsequent elevation of Nazareth in the Gospel of Luke. Luke is the writer who emphasizes JC's ties to 'Nazareth.' Luke is the writer who goes out of his way to demonstrate an anti-Capernaum stance.

    The problem I have is that absolutely nothing at all corroborates the sacred biography of Jesus - and yet this 'greatest story' is peppered with numerous anachronisms, contradictions and absurdities. For example, at the time that Joseph and the pregnant Mary are said to have gone off to Bethlehem for a supposed Roman census, Galilee (unlike Judaea) was not a Roman province and therefore ma and pa would have had no reason to make the journey. Even if Galilee had been imperial territory, history knows of no ‘universal census’ ordered by Augustus (nor any other emperor) – and Roman taxes were based on property ownership not on a head count. Then again, we now know that Nazareth did not exist before the second century. Nazareth is not mentioned at all in the Old Testament nor by Josephus, who waged war across the length and breadth of Galilee (a territory about the size of Greater London).

  • Why do the Christians feel a need to censorship sex?

    Bible-believers often complain about sex in library books, television, movies, and art museums. These complaints, when successful, result in censorship. Christians should realise, however, that if books are to be removed from the library because of their sexual content, then the Bible should also be removed.

In the United States it has large investments with the Morgan Bank, the Chase-Manhattan Bank, the First National Bank of New York, the Bankers Trust Company, and others. The Vatican has billions of shares in the most powerful international corporations such as Gulf Oil, Shell, General Motors, Bethlehem Steel, General Electric, International Business Machines, T.W.A., etc. At a conservative estimate, these amount to more than 500 million dollars in the U.S.A. alone.
