Hahaha, i have no argument,coming from a person that believes in 2000 year old fairy tales? Just precious...You didn't answer the slavery question,but then again you know that nothing you say can justify that...Go check out the link i sent you,educate yourself and join the rest of us in the real world...

"Do you know when compass came to western society, the time period in which cardinal directions were established in their current form?"Hahaha now I know you have no argument. The cardinal points were known well before the compass in its modern form, came into being. Certainly,at the time of Isaiah the compass points were well known. Certainly, in the book of Revelation the compass points were well known.You cannot use the modern version of an age-old concept in order counter the truth.

Have to go now,we can continue tomorrow if you are up to it... :) In the meanwhile i sent you a link that shows you the contradictions and inconsistency found in the bible,i hope you check it out and deduce your own logical conclusions based on that....

I can't believe that you actually cannot figure it out by yourself,a 5 year old child could deduce what i am getting at...Do you know when compass came to western society, the time period in which cardinal directions were established in their current form? Do you need me to draw it out for you?I sat upon a circle many times,above a circular lake comes to mind...What about slavery and the instructions in the bible on how to beat your slaves,that's figure of speech too?

Perhaps you would like to enlighten us as to what is wrong with my reasoning? What has a history book got to do with anything? Do you actually have a logical and valid argument or am I wasting my time? "But what is mind boggling for me is that you claim that these are metaphoric and idiomatic figures of speech,but the circle part is literal?"When was the last time you sat upon a circle? Four corners of the earth, on the other hand is a well known and well used figure of speech.

You are truly hilarious, i didn't think anyone can be that ignorant..Please read a history book,a real history book then you might understand what is wrong with your reasoning...But what is mind boggling for me is that you claim that these are metaphoric and idiomatic figures of speech,but the circle part is literal? So you get to cherry pick the parts of the book they got partially right (even though it's wrong but for the sake of the argument) and the ones that aren't are figures of speech?
Neil Anthony (el 18/05/13 a las 11:21 am)
A 12 year old child can figure it out, so whats the matter with you."You see nothing whatsoever wrong in using Cardinal direction and compass in describing biblical texts"This is just ignorance plain and simple. Why should I see anything wrong with metaphoric and idiomatic figures of speech in a book? It's a valid literary device used by many, many authors throughout the millennia...why should the bible be any different?
odiriuss (el 18/05/13 a las 11:13 am)
Hahaha, i have read more books in a year then you have your entire life and it clearly shows when you don't understand yourself what is wrong with your statement and that reasoning.... You see nothing whatsoever wrong in using Cardinal direction and compass in describing biblical texts and you have the audacity to call someone else unread and unlearned?Pure comedy....
Neil Anthony (el 18/05/13 a las 11:07 am)
What is it that you don't understand about a literary figure of speech? You can attack me as much as you like. I don't particularly care. But it does show that you have no other argument to resort to and that you are clueless, unread and unlearned. I suggest you go read some books and you can start with a dictionary. Go look up the words: metaphor, Simile and idiomatic. There are lots of those in the bible. For non-biblical work...go read some Shakespeare.
