... appearantly sarcasm doesn't translate well in the written word.
Well, yours doesn't. :)
There's a pretty fine line between sarcastically trying to look like an idiot and actually looking like an idiot. For example, when you say something like:
quote:You are assuming that the passage was written for 1st cetury christians because that's who Jesus is speaking to; however, the passage is a prophacy concerning the future.
you not only look like an idiot, but an arrogant idiot too. Unless your sarcasm has failed to come through again, it looks like you think everything in the Bible is directed at you, and not at the people who lived at the time. Mind you, it would have been useful if the Bible was written as a science book to teach you and you alone, but it clearly hasn't done that.
So, until you learn a bit more about how the English language works, I'd advise leaving the sarcasm to the professionals (and you might want to leave off the lectures on Hebrew and Greek too).
Happy Birthday. :)
