    I don't care if you don't believe, what drives such hate that you have to force others not to believe.

    And many, more than any other faith contend He still is.


    Reply if you like, I won't respond....this is very boring and childish.
    Who is forcing anyone not to believe? I don't think that word means what you think it means?

    And as to the OP, regardless of the findings it won't affect Christiany in any way.

    You inserted a modifier ("especially") after you made a direct statement responding to a post that made no such stipulation, but thanks for the clarification. Personally, I think Christianity is under assault everywhere to one degree or another, with the possible exception of the Vatican.

    ah, a claim of innocence?

    Hardly apt, any given day, in here, in any forum you will have hate filled atheists attacking not God, but Christianity.

    And, you show yourself when you make false claims about what I said. Typical.

    Persecution complex, the 80% majority is under assault by the 20% minority. With logic like that I'm not surprised you rely on "faith" rather than reasoning.

    Oops back on topic.

    Archaeological proof of Jesus' existence might not mean much to a Christian who already believes without evidence, but it does mean something to me. This would be the first physical evidence of his actual existence, as there are no eye-witness accounts or corroboration of any of his narrative from outside of the gospels known to exist. But this wouldn't be the first time someone has faked evidence of this sort also, so I would need to see it independently verified, and considering the archaeological origin of this particular tomb that is unlikely to happen.

    More like 80% under assault by the 3%. These days it pays to be defensive. So if a gay couple walks in to your store and asks if you will cater their wedding, maybe this would be a better response:

    "When is your wedding?"

    "Oh we haven't set a date, we were just wondering."

    "Ah. So if I say no?"

    "Well then we will sue you out of business."

    "I see. So you came in to ask a hypothetical question in the hopes of entrapping me so you can take everything I have?"

    "Yes."

    "So this is an attempted robbery?"

    "Uh...."

    BANG.

    "I'd like to report an attempted robbery. No hurry...."

    I don't know. Offense seems to be working out too.

    Imagine NO gay couple has come to your store asking if you will provide service. Instead you just make a public statement stating that IF a gay couple wants service you will refuse.

    A bunch of people call you a bigot and boycott your bigoted business.

    You start a gofundme page and a bunch of other bigots give you a lot of money and now you don't need your business anymore.

    Yeah, that blowback's a bitch isn't it? I'm thinking the pizzaria owners should send a few pies to the reporter who went out fishing for a story that didn't exist to begin with.

    Isn't that like saying there are no eyewitness accounts outside of those who eye witnessed His life and acts

    Right, because insisting on equality is an open attack.
