About Me:Jzyehoshua is the online moniker I've used since at least 2003. JZ are my initials and 'yehoshua' is the Hebrew word for Joshua, my first name. In other words, it's an interesting way of saying "Joshua Z." I'm generally pretty even-keeled and enjoy learning for the sake of learning. I don't mind disagreeing and even being proven wrong because I want to be on the right side of truth. However, I have no respect whatsoever for dishonest debate tactics, use of ad hominems and strawmen to distract from a losing argument. I've had the good fortune to only encounter these once so far at Debate.org. I likewise have no respect for those who vote down your debates because of a disagreement within the hour on an opinion thread (you know who you are). I've never liked intellectual dishonesty and do not respect it.
Beliefs:I'm a Christian. I'm conservative. I vote mainly Republican or for 3rd party conservatives. I believe the Bible is literally true and only figurative in clear cases where dreams, visions, or parables are being presented. All my beliefs are the result of my own reasoning and experiences.
Books:Scofield Study Bible III, The Darksword Trilogy, Les Miserables, Punished by Rewards, Rare Air, Ivanhoe, Bias, Jesus Among Other Gods, The Fingerprint of God, Halley's Bible Handbook. Any writing by Josh McDowell.
Movies:The Princess Bride, Tron Legacy, Superman Returns, Spiderman, X-Men, Iron Man - basically feel-good superhero movies with good morals
Music:Hymns, CCM
Quotes:Proverbs 27:5-6 Open rebuke is better than secret love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.

Acts 17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

The world was created in 7 days

AirplanesAndBaseball
Jzyehoshua

The book of genesis provides us with an impossible story with Many loopholes. The universe could not have been created in 7 days, even by a supernatural entity (God). If there were no humans to record the event, how did it end up being written down? How could you tell what a day was if there was no sun, or no light? Why does the bible only mention the earth specifically as oppose to the rest on the universe? If Adam and Eve had two male children, how did they end up procreating and spawning the...
