Default Re: What god thingy do Christians Muslims and Jew worship?

no - I know what I am talking about.

you said

It's a dud link.

Religious poetry, and proof of cultural transference (which I might reiterate, in the hope you are reading this time, nobody is denying, but proves nothing about the two gods being identical).

It is a quote from Boyces book - doesnt work any more not sure why.

the wildest part of my claim?

YHWH is Ahura Mazda? its right there in 2nd Isaiah - a copy of Yasna 44 with YHWH substituted.

Anyway - you are nasty people I am ill and have better things to do that try to teach reality to nasty stupid bastards.

The religious Nutbergers take the bible literally so literally Ahura Mazda is their god and Cyrus was the Christ.

Cya - better things to do with my precious time

Your hostility is noted, but I see no need for it.
I also fail to see why you are so passionately trying to establish the certainty of there being just the one god at the heart of the texts.
They are all just fairy tales and none of the religiously infected will take any notice of your claims, they would argue amongst themselves what colour socks this god character wears let alone accept that all the different incarnations of the meme are based on one character.
I personally have not been convinced of your argument and tend to agree with the view that cross pollination was rife.

Did you click the link, Boris? What you provided goes nowhere.

It is as dud as the "reasoning" you have shown so far, which is very similar to that I have observed in religious eejits before.

Your Isaiah thing reminds me of the very, very, tired bus driver I met at one church, who was getting by on four hours of sleep a night because 1 Kings 3:14 said: "I will lengthen your days".

The mistake is uncannily similar: one might even say there were striking parallels.

Why is it so many people have time to come here and write posts - but when their material is read and engaged with by the membership, who then ask relevant questions, the poster's time is suddenly too precious to be spent explaining their position?

It worked in the first instance and is a Book by Mary Boyce.

See how you a non expert are so abusive to an expert who knows that he is saying? Me.

Anyway you are no expert other than insulting any bullying and you are beneath me.

Mod note.

Thread closed because it's boring as fuck.
