    But whatever. You were attempting to use time to discredit the authorship of the NT, and turned out to be wrong.
    The number one, to my knowledge, has always been singular. If it precedes the word 'hundred' it still remains singular. I'm guessing that the same rule would apply to one million, one billion or one trillion, though I'm not that familiar with New Math.

    Actually, there's about a billion and a half people who want to live under Sharia law. Try to keep up.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Ah, I understand now, you're just ignorant and don't know any better. This country was NOT founded on Judeo-Christian values. Just read the Treaty of Tripoli, article 11 of which begins: "As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion..." This was the view of the founding fathers. This was the view of Congress which approved it unanimously. It is a myth, a complete and total lie, that America is a Christian nation and you fell for it hook, line and sinker. You ought to be ashamed.

    Nor does it make it bad or immoral. It just makes it true.

    Then, just what is "selected by Islamic extremists to be murdered" ?
    In truth, Christianity is under continual attack from those who are jealous and hateful .. and then there are the self-righteous Christians , whom I have attacked ..

    It certainly was founded on Christian values but was not a Christian nation in the sense that people, in contrast to Muslim countries, were still free practice their own religion.

    According to Frank Lambert, Professor of History at Purdue University, the assurances in Article 11 were "intended to allay the fears of the Muslim state by insisting that religion would not govern how the treaty was interpreted and enforced. John Adams and the Senate made clear that the pact was between two sovereign states, not between two religious powers." Lambert writes,

    "By their actions, the Founding Fathers made clear that their primary concern was religious freedom, not the advancement of a state religion. Individuals, not the government, would define religious faith and practice in the United States. Thus the Founders ensured that in no official sense would America be a Christian Republic. Ten years after the Constitutional Convention ended its work, the country assured the world that the United States was a secular state, and that its negotiations would adhere to the rule of law, not the dictates of the Christian faith. The assurances were contained in the Treaty of Tripoli of 1797 and were intended to allay the fears of the Muslim state by insisting that religion would not govern how the treaty was interpreted and enforced. John Adams and the Senate made clear that the pact was between two sovereign states, not between two religious powers".

    he claimed that the New Testament wasn't finished being written until "hundreds" of years after.
    “In America we have a two-party system,” a Republican congressional staffer told a visiting group of Russian legislators. “There is the stupid party. And there is the evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid party. Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called: bipartisanship."

    Was that a singular "hundreds" or a plural "hundreds"?
