There are easier ways to go about it than killed 3000 of its own citizens. Just take a look at Vietnam.

Christianity is undoubtably descended from Judaism which may have its roots in Zoroastrianism. It's a silly thing to have a conspiracy theory about, lol. Just because your religion borrows symbolism and metaphors from a pre-existing culture doesn't invalidate its core tenets. It's not like religion is born in a vaccum. I didn't see the documentary though, so maybe he was claiming something more sinister?

So I bit and watched the Sandy Hook Conspiracy video. Some mighty fine editing and contortion of words to fit the agenda. I don't buy it though.

"First was christianity was a copy of other religions that came before."

Well - Honestly - There's no possible way to debate that Christianity did not 'borrow' the vast majority of its central precepts given the historical context.

Unless you completely negate artifacts/documentation courtesy of ancient religions/pagan rituals.

Well, the doc talks about a set of similarities in many religtions.
a savior
12 followers
virgin birth
and a few other things.

Most religions that they claimed to have these traits, well, simply dont.

You are absolutely incorrect in your assessment, all of these motifs were around long before Jesus.

If you need more/better sources I can provide them. These are just 2 quick ones I had bookmarked.

EDIT: If you are genuinely curious, a well made documentary regarding historical existence is The God Who Wasn't There on Netflix. It's not as abrasive towards christians as others I've seen.

Of course they were, no one is claiming otherwise. Or are they? I'm confused. Even a child knows that the traditions and metaphors of Christianity descend directly from the Jewish faith...there's a little thing that sits at the front of the Bible called "The Old Testament" that may be proof of that ;P

Rev. Otter says:
<<If running an airplane into it is a possible solution than these demo teams that get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to demo buildings are ripping off everyone.>>

heh.

"Why should we pay these guys hundreds of thousands of dollars, when we can just crash a plane costing MILLIONS of dollars? (By the way, any volunteers to fly it? It pays overtime ...) "

Prior to the Old Testament even.

I agree, but say this to an apologist and you'll get a response about how the OT and NT are part of the whole, and how the NT "improved upon" the tenets laid forth in the Torah/OT by fulfilling the prophecy.

The funny thing is - Say anything about the negative aspects of the OT (of which there are many) and said apologist will denounce any affiliation swiftly.

I don't know much about passenger airplanes, but I'm pretty sure they're worth at least a couple hundred thousand dollars each.

I'm sure it costs $75 million to demolish one of these buildings, right?

<<well, that really wasn't my point.>>

correct. it's MY point. that's why i posted it, and not someone else.

we can tell it's not "your" point, because it utterly demolishes the argument you're trying to make. :)

Sure, if you don't care about people dying or damaging the surrounding buildings you can take a building down pretty fast and probably much cheaper than a controlled demolition with zero planning involved.

All the evidence in this thread points to you being one of...THEM!

Posted on Jan 15, 2013 1:09:23 PM PST
This whole conversation reminds me of the Onion video where a 9/11 conspiracy theorist and an al-Qaeda representative are arguing about what brought the buildings down.

What I've never understood is if it's a controlled demolition, why even have the planes? Why not just say the terrorists planted bombs in the building or something? The planes AND the controlled demolition don't make any sense together.

What does this mean? I don't understand.

Rev. Otter says:
<<how exactly does it demolish my point>>

by showing that it's NOT cheaper or easier to fly a plane into a building than to pay for licensed, regulated demotion. :)

<<How bout starting a fire in a building and having it collapse demolition style?>>

neat little fantasy, but why stop there?

how about training bigfoot to ride a unicorn faster than the speed of light around and around the building, thus sending the whole structure back in time to before it was even built? not only do you save demolition costs, you get back the *construction* costs as well!

if you're gonna dream, dream big! :D
