even in japan, they do not build tall buildings, to fall over on their side in a slight breeze or other mild shaking. and new york city, does have a falt line running near it. as all tall buildings, must meet some kind of minimum federal building standard. and even are required, to insure electrical and broadcast radio antenna and grounding codes.
so if you really want to learn, structural engineering. go to a college or university, where it is their job to teach this. rather than being a typical jew, and demanding a cheap education. since you already, pissed off you college professor here. try doing that in college, if you want.

<Anonymous testimony is NOT accepted into a court. While there is a gospel atributed to "Luke", no one has any real idea who wrote it.>
.
Firstly we are not in a court so the strigency of the evidence is different. As in a capital case versus a criminal case the rules for evidence change. In this case we have a historical case which is not as stringent as a criminal case as a man's life is not dependent upon the evidence. Do we have evidence Tacitus wrote the annals? Do we have evidence Josephus wrote Wars of the Jews? I just looked at the preface and the beginning of Book 1 and there is no attribution to the author. If it is the case that books at this time were not writen to bring glory to the author but to state something then you have asked for evidence NOT required by historians and so your criteria is out of step with what is required.
.
Secondly the evidence is not anonymous as everyone knew who the authors were and this was passed down orally until today.
.
<Furthermore, when the original does not exist, and ALL of the earliest copies of that document differ from one another (sometimes in trivial things, sometimes in big issues) the document becomes almost worthless as evidence.>
.
Since you have made the claim then I say you need to provide the evidence that would render these documents worthless as evidence.
Somehow I doubt you will be able to do that.
.
<Without coroboration, no EXTRAORDINARY claims would be accepted>
.
I agree that is why the bible requires the testimony of two witnesses. There are at least five testimonies of Yeshua rising from the dead.
.
<Judaism (according to the Bible) is based on the extraordinary event of having the Torah taught to Moses while the entire nation was present.>
.
This seems like an EXTRAORDINARY claim to me. Do you have any testimony or evidence that this is so? If not then you are a hypocrit for asking me for more than five testimonies as to the resurrection.
.
In addition each testimony stands on its own merit. You can't take independent testimony and lump them all together saying this is only one testimony. If there was testimony to the contrary it would help your case but you don't.
.
<If the God of the Bible was going to change His mind and toss all of that out, it is only logical to expect a similar extraordinary event.>
.
I agree. Yeshua performed many miracles some of which I will cite below:
1. Healing the sick
2. Raising the dead including himself.
3. Cleansing the leper.
4. Opening the eyes of the blind.
5. Predicted the TOTAL destruction of the temple compound.
6. Sent the Holy Spiri to empower his followers.
.
Furthermore, who is claiming that everything is thrown out?
.
<I don't need to twist anything. It is a lot more fun to simply point out the truth. And I do this BECAUSE I understand scripture FAR better than any xian.>
.
For one who is telling the truth you seem to have a problem producing evidence. I have made a challenge above. Let's see how you do with it. You had to allegorize the command to not worship idols to apply that to Yeshua.
.
Furthermore by your own admission you don't keep the mitzvot, so how well do you understand scripture. Not even enough to obey it. You just parrot what you have been told. I don't see any real understanding of even the outer garment of the Torah. Certainly I cannot recall anything said by you that speaks of the body or soul of the Torah.
.
<Jesus was teaching apocaliptic Judaism, that the end of times was near at hand and that the kingdom of the God of the Bible was about to start>
.
I agree. If you were to apply the tradition that the world will last 7 days (thousand years) then it hasn't even been two days yet. The end is near. Certainly you can see that G-d does not dwell in a dimension where time has any relevance.
.
<he was teaching that the Messiah was about to appear>

He taught he was the Messiah Joh 4:25-6 and that he would come again Joh 14:3 as the prophet has foretold Hos 6:3.

Maybe you should have actually read the article as I am posing from it below:
Rebi Alexandri said: Rebi Yehoshua ben Levi raised the following contradiction: It says, "Behold like the clouds of Heaven came one like the son of man" (Daniel 7:13). It is also written, "Lowly and riding upon a donkey" (Zechariah 9:9). If they merit it, he will come with the clouds of Heaven, but if they do not merit it, he will come upon a donkey.(Sanhedrin 98a)
.
In addition I gave the Talmud reference which is of more weight and which you neglected to answer.
.
<They never had a reason to, until far past the time when they could have produced his body. The invention of the myth of Jesus as god took place well after the destruction of the Temple and the Diaspora.>

Do you have any evidence of this as I can produce historical records of the influence of X-tianity in the first century, but you first as you have made the assertion.
.
In addition this doesn't even make sense. Why would Judaism allow a sect to start up to divide the kenesset when it ould have been so easy to produce the body. Furthermore the only testimonies we have state that the Jewish leaders guarded the tomb against the possibility of not being able to produce the body. hat evidence do you have to the contrary?
.
<Ah, but the Bible makes the claim for Elijah.>
.
But your point was Yeshua MUST have rotted away BECAUSE that is what happens. Well it seems to me you just admitted that it doesn't always happen (especially when G-d is involved). In this case G-d is involved as G-d raised his incarnate body from the dead.
.
<I am not ignorant of the mystery of the God of the Bible. However, He is the God of the children of Israel.>

You are obviously ignorant of the fact that G-d is the G-d of the whole world and of all peoples. He will even take from them priests. Below is one of many verses.

Firstly the actions of anyone is not indicative of the teachings of the religion or if Yeshua is the Messiah. Those texts are available to read.

Secondly what do you think G-d is going to do upon his return to earth? Here is a snipit:
Joe 2:1 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
Joe 2:2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
Joe 2:3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
Joe 2:4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
Joe 2:5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
Joe 2:6 Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.
Joe 2:7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:
Joe 2:8 Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.
Joe 2:9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.
Joe 2:10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
Joe 2:11 And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?

Thirdly you will note by your own evidence that this behaviour didn't become noted until X-tianity became the official religion of the Empire. Before this happened X-tians were being killed for their faith. Not too many fake X-tians at that time. Once it became the religion of the Emporer, you have the hypocrits using religion to garner favor since it isn't costing them their lives.

Is that so? If a Jew believes Yeshua is the Messiah he is ostracized and called a traitor. He is told he is no longer a Jew. We have had that discussion ad naseum here in Topix. Familiarize yourself with the Messianic Judaism section if you want proof.

So Judaism doesn't allow one to make up their own mind and stay within Judaism. In other words it doesn't do anything. There is no freedom of thought when it comes to Yeshua.

Conclusion: I don't see much in this post that is true. I don't see one scrap of evidence to your assertions. I will give you the opportunity to support them with EVIDENCE. For instance give three evidences of the NT that have changed alot. Since you have not defined "changed alot" I think it is important that one understand what this means. To me this means a change in meaning. So scribal additions clarifying a passage that are in harmony with the rest of the NT is not a change in meaning. Also differences in spelling or order of words do not constitute a change of meaning. If this is too tough a criteria for you then you need to define what you mean by "changed alot". You might also define what you mean by written late. Most books are written after the fact. All the books can be dated to the 1st century which is within the lifetime of the witnesses of Yeshua.
The evidence you ask for is here:
http://www.amazon.com/Misquoting-Jesus-Story-...

And yes, some of the passages have indeed changed a lot. Like the ending to the gospel of Mark. The original ending was at 16:8, the women fled and didn't say a word. The end. Verses 9 through 20 are not found in the earliest manuscripts

Sigh, the library is closing soon, so I will not get a chance to finish this today.

A capital case IS a criminal case. You meant the difference between a criminal case and a civil case.

I have not actually researched as to whether or not Josephus or Tacitus is "really" the author of their respective works. Off the top of my head, I am unaware of any controversy over the authorship. On the other hand, it IS widely known that there are passages in Josephus that ARE forgeries, most likely inserted by xian monks seeking to bolster the case for pretending Jesus was a god, or the Messiah, or anything at all special.

Books at this time were indeed written to bring fame, glory, or money to their authors. However, some were still written anonymously. Still others were written under false names, either pseudonyms or outright forgeries. And historians most certainly DO look at this differently. A book that was written under a forged name is given FAR less credence than one properly attributed, or even one that is anonymous.

Now, to be fair, the gospels were not deliberately given false names. They were all written anonymously and the names were assigned much later by people who only had stories and legends to use to assign authorship. "Luke" appears to have been written by the same person who wrote Acts, and it seems to have been someone who may have accompanied Paul at one time, and Paul was accompanied by someone named Luke, so let's call this gospel "Luke". The other gospels are even worse, so far as being able to know who really wrote them. The one thing that CAN be safely stated is that NONE of the authors was a disciple of Jesus: they were all illiterate peasants.

Matthew the tax collector MIGHT have been high enough up the hierarchy that he could manage a few simple words or names, or he could have just been like the majority of tax collectors back then: a thug with a badge (as it were). But NONE of them would have been able to compose Greek writings such as we see in the gospels.

In an earlier post, I added a link to a book called "Misquoting Jesus". Delightful book. It shows how the NT has been changed over the years and talks about WHY it happened. I strongly recommend that you read it along with the author's other books as well.

I wouldn't believe anything Bart Ehrman writes. Here is an example of his thinking: http://wellthoughtoutlife.blogspot.ca/2011/10...
.
He is merely a man looking to cash in on disbelief in Yeshua.
.
As to your passage in Mark, where in the presumably added verses is there anything new or different from the testimony we have from other witnesses? In other words where is the change?
.
Furthermore think about it. If you were an author writing about the resurrection would you have ended the story in verse 8?
.
Lastly here is more evidence or Ehrman's thinking and methods:
What to Make of Ehrman’s All-Too-Convenient Cock-Crowing Conundrum? Another astonishingly easy-to-resolve “problem with the Bible” that perplexes Ehrman is the following:“In Mark’s Gospel, Jesus tells Peter that he will deny him three times ‘before the cock crows twice.’ In Matthew’s Gospel he tells him that it will be ‘before the cock crows.’ Well, which is it-before the cock crows once or twice?” First, as his more attentive students have likely discovered, Professor Ehrman is engaged in a cocky game of slight of mind. Truth is that Matthew does not tell us how many times the rooster crowed-he simply tells us that the rooster crowed. As such, Ehrman is knocking down a straw man. Furthermore, only an extreme literalist bent on undermining Scripture would attempt to make the passage in question walk on all fours. In recounting past events or telling stories we obviously don’t all highlight the same details. In the case at hand, Mark simply provides a bit more detail than does Matthew. Finally, Ehrman has set up a rigged game in which it is impossible for him to lose. Since Matthew and Mark do not provide identical testimonies, he cries “contradiction!” Conversely, if they had, he could conveniently charge them with collusion. In sharp contrast to Ehrman’s methodology, credible scholarship looks for a reliable core set of facts in order to validate a historical account. In this case, Matthew and Mark merely provide complementary perspectives.

like Jehova's versus catholics.
And I can assure you that western text is not judaism based, yes they made claims, and stole relevant pieces, but jesus is more mithraic and dualism and hell, as notions from zoroastrianism shine through everywhere.
Since the religion is based on discarding what the churchfathers did not like. And thus their discussions on it.
In the east it went slightly different, but there we find the same textual problems.
i can't read effin estrangela and georgian, let alone russian and japanese, so i have to rely on sources that might have been edited, filled in etc.
It's all fine if people buy into that, but it is not judaism. Believe in tenets is just a choice.
Some would say, stop the distortions, and i echo that, as do most translators nowadays.
LXX also dates from around 390. Codes sinaiticus just finished a bit later, though some would as earliest date for both hold 330 CE and in starting the project and latest date 360 CE.

The First Epistle of Clement,(literally, Clement to Corinth; Greek: &#922;&#955;&#942; &#956;&#949;&#957; &#964;&#959;&#962; &#960;&#961;&#8056 ;&#962; &#922;&#959;&#961; &#953;&#957;&#952; &#943;&#959;&#965; &#962;, Kl&#275;mentos pros Korinthious) is a letter addressed to the Christians in the city of Corinth. The epistle is dated customarily to the end of the reign of emperor Domitian, that is 95 or 96 AD. It ranks with Didache and the Gospel of Thomas as one of the earliest, if not the earliest, of extant Christian documents outside the canonical New Testament.

.
Do you actually have anyone saying that this document is from the 4th century?
.
The earliest extant fragment of the New Testament is the Rylands Library Papyrus P52, a piece of the Gospel of John dated to the first half of the 2nd century.

.
2. We have a fragment of the gospel of Mark in the DSS fragments which is dated at 68 AD.
>>>We don't, we have fragments that are in dispute.
.
Anyone can dispute anything especially when they don't like the implication of what admitting something to be true is for them.
.
Hace these disputers any idea what else the fragment can be of? No.

rabbee: well if you want to read, all the national and local building codes involved for high rise construction. since you have more than just building codes to deal with. and to find the specific codes in force at that time. and to take the necessary college courses, in physics, mathmatics, structural and civil engineering. well then, knock yourself out. the college in question, will let you know what text books you need. and even have integrated courses, for the code books. to become, a certified engineer. and even teach terminology, so that you can understand what other engineers are talking about.

and without any prerequisite knowledge, there is no point in trying to discuss this with any one. there is just too much territory, in even math and physics to be covered here. and i seriously doubt, you have ever even seen, any kind of national code book. or taken any test, for any engineering certification.

and since you have already, discounted anything i have said. then go study all of this for yourself, in some school of your choice. i am not being paid, to be your baby sitter or college professor. and in fact, i have no desire to even teach again. i have no intention, of being glorified baby sitter again. especially with anyone, who only knows how to insult others. so go do that, to your teacher. and see how, he likes it.
