In order for a philosopher to have come to this conclusion, they would have needed to know what "a meter" was.

Don't get hung up on units - or terminology in general. Chances are that philosopher (if he existed) didn't speak English either, so he didn't call it the "sun".

The point of the claim is that the sun was about 1 meter or 1 yard or 2 cubits in diameter.

If stars are holes in this unmoving firmament....

Why would they be?

Wouldn't they be more like lamps hanging from the ceiling/firmament?

... 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. :)

To be verbaly persecuted because of the Word of God and my belief in Him;

Well, I didn't say anything about your belief in God or the Bible....

So do you have any relevant arguements to my posts or did you just come here to wish me happy birthday and bring me presents?

I think your posts so far have been done away with adequately by others. Do you have anything pertinent to the OP?
