Well, you've done it. You've singlehandedly wiped Christian belief off the map because you've "demonstrated conclusively that the doctrine of the Virgin birth..." etc. etc.

Vynette, I've read your post at Challies.com and responded to it. I'm not interested in carrying on a war of words and wit with you, but...

You have not demonstrated anything conclusively, and claiming you have simply discredits your argument. And the fact that you would consider your arguments 'irrefutable' because no one has taken the time to rebut them is beyond the pale! The logicians and rhetoricians of the ages are surely turning over in their graves.

All for now.

Mark, thanks for your comments.

You remarked that "The logicians and rhetoricians of the ages are surely turning over in their graves."

It brought to my mind, irresistibly, the conviction that one who would certainly be turning in his grave, if he were indeed in a grave, is the man in whose name so much wickedness has been perpetrated and about whom so many false doctrines have been preached.

What will he say, I wonder, if he does 'return?'

You also said: "You have not demonstrated anything conclusively, and claiming you have simply discredits your argument. And the fact that you would consider your arguments 'irrefutable' because no one has taken the time to rebut them is beyond the pale!"

If my claims are beyond the pale, then you easily demonstrate this by offering a rebuttal. Please feel free to show me where I am in error.

Vynette
