Look at the number of YEARS in the calendar, not the name of the months..."YEAR

Secondly - why should I waste my time researching to refute this guy ... http://www.alternet.org/belief/150734/meet_bart_ehrman%3A_a_one-man_god_fraud_squad/?page=entire
I got your thread the hits/views, Xerxes; not your zealous Christian-bashing that only massages your already swelled intellect, and self-importance in this Monroetalks category...go follow that guy off a cliff, I'll still sleep well at night anticipating my soul will appear before the Creator when I die.
I am not a seminary student, nor have any plans to be. I am not a politician, nor do I have plans to be. I am simply a father of 5 who fled the economic conditions of Monroe after I lost my career in wholesale building materials out there. I am currently working 3 jobs in another state - one as a janitor, one as a caterer, and one as a pizza driver; I am hardly smart enough to get into the scholarly tussle you so desire; given that I work with my hands to keep my head above water - I don't have the luxury of sitting on my *** all day reading useless tripe that lends no beneficial/tangible attributes to the value of human life on Earth.
You go ahead and pat yourself on the back for PROVING the Bible is all forgeries and DEFEATING me in a debate; obviously you and Bart have PROVEN by the historical method that Jesus was not what the disciples, first century apostles, and bible believing Christians since then think He is...WOW! I can't imagine how many people you've helped to feel like a moron for ever believing! The "thank you's" on this thread for rescuing so many from Christianity are too many to count!
Isn't it something how Bart went to Moody, PAID Moody to become/behave like a zealot for Christ; and I merely attended a church in Wisconsin voluntarily at no charge and ended up studying the Bible myself outside of service times, and concluded it would be BEST for me if I repented of my sins to the Creator, and ask Christ to pay my sin debt, without any help/leading/coercion from a bunch of PAID theological masters holding all sorts of degrees?
Look, man; it is enough for me to know what kind of person becomes motivated to debunk a faith they once subscribed to, that's called WISDOM - I need not explain my position any further, nor answer on anything Bart has written when I know you have a ridiculous arsenal of crap ready to throw at my every answer, because that is how you boys play this game.
I say your kind are but preying vermin; destined/hellbent on disrupting the good fruit that Christianity bears because you foolishly think higher than you ought to think of yourselves - which is what making and idol out of one's self-education does to people who reject God's conscience and creation revelation of Himself at face value.
Let's NOT forget - Satan tempted Eve with the promise of gaining SPECIAL KNOWLEDGE!!! Go find another sucker for your game, I ain't playin'; and most people viewing this know I've whipped you good for persisting in getting on here and engaging in Christian-bashing like an unsupervised child with nothing better to do, and a REAL internet troll.(just Google College Humor Internet Bridge Troll, I won't embed it here)
