Wow, here's ANOTHER (stand in line) attack on Christianity. How short is time? VERY short. After watching a 9 minute or so short video on Youtube I was AMAZED at how many errors and distortions could be introduced in such a short amount of time. Let me start by saying, the mode of operation seems to be identical for all these so called 'expose's' of Christianity. Movies like "zeitgeist" and now "Who Was Jesus? Fingerprints of The Christ" use the same pathetic "straw man" then they proceed to demolish the easily dismissible. I wish at least they'd come up with a new tactic. What's a straw man?
A straw man argument is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position. To "set up a straw man" or "set up a straw man argument" is to describe a position that superficially resembles an opponent's actual view but is easier to refute, then attribute that position to the opponent (for example, deliberately overstating the opponent's position). A straw man argument can be a successful rhetorical technique (that is, it may succeed in persuading people) but it carries little or no real evidential weight, because the opponent's actual argument has not been refuted.
Here's a text book example of how the author "Acharya S" destroys her own credibility in "Who Was Jesus? Fingerprints of The Christ." She says that when Jesus was resurrected "the temple" was split in two and dead flesh eating zombies roamed the streets which would have been noted by thousands of people, but since that did'nt happen, and nobody noted flesh eating zombies, the bible MUST be in error.
Is that what the bible says? Acharya S should flush ALL her degrees down the toilet because last time I checked, the ability to read was a pre-requisite for scholarship. Let's see how the Bible says it happened..........
Mark 15: 37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. 38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom. 39 And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.
Does that say the temple split in two? NO, it says the veil of the temple, Acharya S deliberately deceives here. Let's see more of her deception:
Matt 27 :52 The tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; 53 and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection they entered the holy city and appeared to many.
Do you see anything written there about "flesh eating zombies?" I don't, and that's exactly how
Acharya S portrays what's written in the bible. Again, so much for her "scolarship."
Basically throughout her work, Acharya S uses GROSS MISREPRESENTATION, to explain a version of christianity that comes more from her own head than what's written in the bible. I just described one of maybe hundreds of errors she makes that are of the same caliber. When Acharya S or any of her supporters finds flesh eating zombies in the bible, please let me know, I think they'll only find them in their own imaginations....
It may take me months to demolish all the gross fabrications in this straw man EPIC called Who Was Jesus? Fingerprints of The Christ. Acharya S read the bible, that's great, so did Satan. Does that mean they understand it? Reading and understanding appear to be two VASTLY different competencies...
