    Somewhat. A lot of the backlash is from Cuban Americans. They're important for the Florida vote, but not so much elsewhere.

    Sure. Impious forgers (or ignorant pious forgers, or heretical pious forgers) are likely to include some conflicts. In the case of impious forgers, they're looking to sow doubt on the biblical...

    It's not an "extrabiblical source"; it's a forgery intended to historically align with the gospels. :duh:

    :hrm: AFAICS Paul was concerned about what people were being told (speaking was, after all, the primary means of communication back then). IIRC the first concern with writings comes from 2 Peter,...

    We don't have universal healthcare, and free education is not socialism. In a socialist system, the schools would be entirely run by the federal government; our schools are regulated by the federal...

    I'm aware of how Denmark's economy works, thanks. Still not socialism, democratic or otherwise.

    Not when they're actually shown to be such.

    Yeah, all you ever do is suggest - typical of trolls. I see you've gotten the Charles seal of approval. :thumb:

    You're striving mightily hard to argue for something you pretend to be neutral about after push-back, the point of attempting false equivalence.

    If you want to see how Jews of Jesus' time...

    Sanders, I can see. Trump, not so much; Russians like to support the underdog, and that's not especially Trump this time around. His energy policy is doing the Russian economy no favors, as heavily...

    Because you're the only one actually being passive-aggressive here; it takes a certain amount of chutzpah to suggest otherwise.

    Presumably, yes. This must be inferred, however, since we don't have anything but much later oral tradition to tell us how proselytes were initiated into the Judaic faith.

    As far as I can see, the most straightforward interpretation is that it was fulfilled when Israel was destroyed by the Assyrians, who deported all the leaders of the people (which would have included...

    Oh noes! Troll reduced to talking to himself in desperate attempt to get bites! Oh, the huge manatee!

    We are theoretically talking about ANE habits in general. You're positing something which has zero archaeological evidence and flies in the face of what we know about the culture. Manuscripts were...

    Perhaps because this particular sin is celebrated by the culture as something noble?

    I'm rather certain they weren't preserving backups. If you want a clue to how "daily use" manuscripts would have appeared, look no further than the Cairo genizah, which is where Jews disposed of...

    It was way too labor-intensive to make copies for people to make special copies of manuscripts for preservation, and, if actually done, there would have been no reason to write them differently.

    No, it makes your apparent inability to follow my argument even more obvious. For some unfathomable reason, you read "leftist" as "popular" and ran with that, and are now doubling down on attempting...

    I didn't do that. I merely googled "Archko volume" and clicked on the first reputable link I saw.
