They're just looking for a canvas of thoughts to further disagree with.

So, yeah.
So, ok. Nobody is forcing you to engage with us. But why are you here waving a banner "I see no point in talking to these people" if you are not interested?

...and in the meantime, thousands of foxes that are not on the sanctuary are still being mercilessly tortured by a pack of howling, baying, snapping, blood-thirsty animals - and their dogs.

You haven't said anything yet. Comment on the videos. Show where they are wrong.

(Looks like there is another Christian flounce coming TRANS)

No. You just can't refute the claims and thus, all you have left is to accuse people of not being nice followed by the inevitable Christian flounce.

'Yeah' indeed. I'm surprised you don't toss your hair back with... 'Whatever'.

True, Mark does not say from the Town of Nazareth - it could refer to the district of Nazareth - the area near lake Genessaret. After which a town settled in the 2nd century might be named - not a pre -existing town.
It is most unusual that it says both Nazareth and Galilee. That, and the fact that it is not in the the parallel passages in Matthew or Luke suggest it was added later.

6.1 He went away from there and came to his hometown, and his disciples followed him. 2 And on the Sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were astonished, saying, “Where did this man get these things? What is the wisdom given to him? How are such mighty works done by his hands? 3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him. 4 And Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor, except in his hometown and among his relatives and in his own household.” 5 And he could do no mighty work there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and healed them. 6 And he marveled because of their unbelief.

Mark mentions his hometown, but doesn't name it. Matthew and Luke assume that it is Nazareth.
Yes, you are reading Nazareth back into the text. Mark 2:1 says Jesus went back to Capernaum, which was his home.

Mark 2:1 "And when he returned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that he was at home".

Still my all-time favorite response to one of my posts:

Me: I think sometimes I believe there is some sort of God because I want to believe that we are more than just talking monkeys.

Mordant: We ARE more than talking monkeys. We are storytelling monkeys!
