. . .There is a difference between evidence and proof.
A very big one. All I'm asking for is a modest amount of evidence. Genuine evidence. Not scripture. Scripture is the claim, not the evidence. Where's the evidence to support the claim? I hope you know me well enough by now that I'm not intending to be belligerent. Just concise. Cutting to the chase.
Many natural phenomena have been used ambidextrously: the complexity of a single cell, the grandeur of the universe, etc.
And, you can see how my assertion about the sublime nature of scripture has been received in this thread.
One thing that remains, however, is the fulfillment of prophecy. While some prophecy has been challenged as 'inconclusive' because fulfillment takes place within scripture. However, there remain a few that I consider worth consideration.
The first is the prophecy of Babylon's desolation.
And Babylon will become piles of stones,
A lair of jackals,
An object of horror and something to whistle at,
Without an inhabitant. (Jeremiah 51:37)
I might point out that Setanta has his own vituperation of this assertion. But it is a fact that by the 4th century, Babylon was a pile of rocks.
Another is the prophecy of the 70 weeks in Daniel 9: 24-27, regarding the appearance of the Messiah. Jews in the early part of the first century had interpreted this as relating to their time, and so a messianic expectation had developed. It set the time at or about 30 C.E. Newton correctly interpreted this 300 years ago, although a controversy still exists about the timing of the last week. You can Google it if you need to. I can break down the dates for you as well.
More, of course. But I'm a man of few words and don't have any pictures to show.
