Actually there is historical proof that Jesus was a real man who did extraordinary things, there just is no evidence that says he is the Son of God.  That, my friend, is when religion/other beliefs comes into play, and you personally have to decide what you want to believe.

As far as the Ice Age goes, I do not really care if it is not mentioned (I do not think it is); just because something is not mentioned, does not mean that the Bible claims it never happened.

I have a story for you on the topic of religion- My church pastor took a trip to Guatemala to start up his second church and preach to the Guatemalish (Guatemalans) He saw a dying man and prayed over him right as he fell to the floor, seemingly dead. Now can you explain to me how he got back up 10 seconds later and started dancing for joy?

I didnt read over my post well and since there is no edit button I need to say that in the beggining of the second reason it needs to say After the great flood the earths... then the rest seems right I could be wrong though writing has never been my strong point

Possible explanations for the "dying man"

1. a miracle
2. he was faking it
3. it's a made up story
4. he wasn't really dead. maybe he fainted, maybe he had hypoglycemia, epilepsy, narcolepsy, etc. Was a doctor there to verify?

I imagine it was choice 4, but I wasn't there, and I don't have his medical history in front of me.

Shouldn't there be a special forum section for people to post religious topics? Because this topic title is not related to the posts anymore, which is misleading to people looking for threads to respond to.

Well what i mean is he passed out and then woke up like 10 seconds later. I think it was choice 1, cause my pastor got p.oed becasue i lied to him about nothing once

I'm christian and I believe that some people think different things about religion and that you should accept people's beleif.

Right on, Coheed. I, unfortunately for your thinking, don't think Jesus is the son of God.

Anyway, The Ice Age was 10000 Years ago to "Scientific" Proof, so, I dont' know where thats going.

Also, I could bring up a religion war, if you're really dying for one. I really could, no trouble at all. xP
