So you think I'm a troll now because I express my views? I guess that makes you a troll and every other poster that expresses their views a troll as well.

I guess I just have better things to do in my life than to go onto internet message boards to try to attack something I don't believe in.

The chapter specifically names the country of Greece. It can't be more clear than that.
Thankyou for the post kdbrich. I knew about that one, yet I try not to go to deep here on such prophecies. I say that, because even the more obvious prophecies they don't want to believe.

I was amazed when I studied that prophecy last semester....it was written at least 300 years prior to the events that it talked about.

Is this board devoted to atheism? Or is it a religion/philosophy board?

Ya know, if you guys would just respond to each other's posts and stop getting personal, we'd really appreciate it.

I'm going ot let the posts that are here now stand, but enough already.

Make your points/cases or move on.

Contrary to apparent popular belief, it's not about you!

A question is asked about the validity of a particular bible story or biblical passage and then the believer turns around and uses the same book that is being questioned to prove the truth of the story/passage.

Years ago I used to do the same thing and an atheist used to keep telling me, "you cannot use the bible to prove the bible." I never really paid attention to what he was saying because I was so committed to the idea that using scripture to prove scripture was the way to go. Now I realize that what he was essentially saying is that such a tactic amounts to nothing more than circular argument.

Imagine sitting with someone, obsessed with Snow White, and trying to tell them Snow White does not exist and they keep telling you, "Well you might not believe it, but according to page 15 in the story, it says Snow White met a witch in the forest so she must have existed." Imagine being told that Darth Vader existed just because a fantasy movie brought him to life?

How do you deal with the circular argument presented by believers completely ignoring the idea of empirical evidence?

why not? evolutionists use fuzzy science to defend fuzzy science.

If you're going to attack a particular passage, it always becomes more clear when you read it in context.
