    I heard a preacher on the radio a while back claim that it never has, so I used this as a challenge in another thread, and the resulting discussion has been ongoing for quite some time, and has taken over the original topic. I thought it might be interesting to start a specific thread for this separate issue. Here's how it started: http://www.usmessageboard.com/forums/showpost.php?p=497953&postcount=89

    Besides, it appears Matts needs some help. Who knows, maybe I will as well.

    Quite a lot, actually. Archeological finds continue to agree with the Biblical record. The "big bang" theory closely resembles the story of creation. Plus, the whole "fullfilling the Scriptures" thing.

    What about societal things such as slavery? Were those things deemed wrong at some point, or just blase as time went on?

    That brings up an important point: the standard for burden of proof. When arguing with an atheist, they often raise the bar so high as to make nothing provable. I therefore suggest the highest standard used in the US legal system: beyond a reasonable doubt.

    I have found thsi too to be rejected by most atheists. But this simply proves that they are unreasonable.
