Still no argument from Panda. You really dont know anything about these topics or how to debate, do you?
Still no answer from Dawn.
Why should we believe your claims to be educated when you can't read or write?

Re: How to test Dawn Bertot's writings.
Dawn: What would prevent the writers of the NT having the same inspiration
Arachnophilia: Nothing, but why should anyone assume that they are inspired?
Dawn: Because they said they were.
Why should we believe their claims to be inspired?
Because they are inspired.
How do we know they are inspired?
Because they claim to be inspired.

Wow - it seems almost...circular.

Re: example of previously fulfilled prophecy: isaiah 7:14
Dawn writes:
The Koran, as I have demonstrated is nothing more than a collection of religious statements slung together with no continuity, themes or purposes.
You need to look up the following words in a dictionary:
1) Demonstrated
2) Continuity
3) Theme
4) Purpose
I see you did running at college.
Was that your main focus?
Did you use sports to hide your functional illiteracy?

IOWs you are like a faulty firecracker finally going off. We all stop and look for a moment then turn back to what is rational, believable and acceptable
So...faulty firecrackers are not rational, believable or acceptable.
Good work there, kiddo.

Re: other scriptures
Let's have a quick look at your latest reply...
DB writes:
Sure there[sic] real, but like skepticism itself it serves no useful purpose and burns out quickly[sic]
"Real" is not an antonym for "rational, believable or acceptable".
What you have done is not understood my post and therefore had to guess what to put in your reply.
(I also think you were trying to 'look clever' but since you aren't: you don't.)
DB writes:
You fellas have no real impact,[sic] because after all these years,[sic] you still make up a percentage so small its[sic] barley[sic] worth mentioning, correct[sic]
After all these years Jesus is still only one man, who makes up a percentage so small he's barely worth mentioning. Correct?
If you don't agree with with this faulty logic, then I would suggest that you stop using it.
DB writes:
if[sic] you are so successful shouldnt[sic] the numbers be greater after thousands of years.[sic]
Appeal to the masses is a fallacious argument.
But I don't expect you to understand that.
I do expect you to never mention the above comment again.
Dawn Bertot writes:
What happened Panda,[sic] what[sic] went wrong?
Many times I have asked you this, but you either fail to understand the question or fail to answer it.
Why is your English so awful?
What happened to you at school?
What went wrong with your education?

No. Not correct.

Re: other scriptures
Dawn writes:
I might remind you again that it is you the skeptic and Atheist that is in the low percentage as far as beliefs go.
What happened Dewise after thounsands of years, you are still in the single digit representation
Appeal to the masses is a fallacious argument.
But this has already been pointed out to you.
Since you continue to use this false logic (despite knowing otherwise) this must mean that you are a dishonest debater.
I am sure that your god is proud of your deceit.

Re: misrepresentation
Why did you only address half of the points raised by arachnophilia?
Is it because you debate dishonestly; ignoring any information that contradicts your statements?
Is it because you have trouble reading English?
There must be a reason.
Why do you intentionally ignore so much of what arachnophilia posts?
It is so frequent in your replies that it can only be a mental disorder or dishonesty.

Re: misrepresentation
Dawn writes:
Please present what you think i have not responded to, ill demonstrate otherwise
Are you unable to read what was posted to see what you avoided addressing?
Well, here's one of the points. You can read the rest yourself - if you are able.
arachnophilia writes:
please cite me the chapter and verse in matthew in which the author of that text claims that god told him specifically what to write.
I expect you to hand wave this away as your dishonesty knows no bounds.
Your disingenuous debating tactics must make your god very proud.

Re: misrepresentation
DB writes:
ill do this for you even though you are nothing but a filthy immoral little person, intent on confusion rather than understanding
Let's see if you are judging me by your own standards...
So...the question you were asked was:
arachnophilia writes:
please cite me the chapter and verse in matthew in which the author of that text claims that god told him specifically what to write.
Your answer was 20 lines long.
It is 20 lines long because you can't answer the question.
Yes, your dishonest debating tactics are that obvious.
But, I waste my time reading 20 lines of text and there is no mention of god telling the author what to write.
Which is strange, since that is what the question clearly asked for.
Still, I expected you to not be able to answer arachnophilia's question.
How did I know you couldn't answer it?
Because you avoiding addressing it the first time around.
Yes, your dishonest debating tactics are that obvious.
If you could answer the question then you would have quoted just one or two lines.
Clearly "you are nothing but a filthy immoral little person, intent on confusion rather than understanding" - as I expected.
