Oral transmission in the Bible is reliable

Truth_seeker
Sagey

Reliability will be measured by the ability to recall memory to the point where the essentially entire message is preserved. I will provide evidence for why oral transmission used to pass the Bible (particularly the New Testament) is reliable (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oral_gospel_traditions). first round acceptance...

WileyC1949
Secular_Mike

I will be arguing that the Supreme Being must exist and that He is the likely the creator of the universe and thus is omnipotent (capable of doing all that He wills to do that is not self-contradicting), transcendent (not a part of the universe), immanent (involved in the affairs of the world), omnipresent, omnibenevolent, and omniscient (having all knowledge). I will be relying primarily on logic and science. The first round is acceptance only. 4th round is for summary only. No new arg...

Truth_seeker

I strongly believe that Jesus ( may peace be upon him) was not crucified for the sins of mankind. If you think about it rationally, it seems quite absurd, how can one man pay the price for the sins of humanity. There are millions of people around the world. Why would god punish someone else for the sins of other people. That would make god very unjust. How can a christian who has lived as a good human being and another christian who kills people and causes oppression on earth and dies that way...
