Danny, your blithering response totally lacks substance. You have the rebuttal skills of a 12 year old. Perhaps that is why it took you 3 months to write your next letter. Let's see if you can address these point-by-point with facts (not your opinions):

- Legend of Sargon is from fragments of ancient Sumarian text. You can read the translation here:
http://etcsl.orinst.ox.ac.uk/section2/tr214.htm You'll find no mention of anything like Moses' story. What you reference is a Neo-assyrian story written about 700BC. Hebrew traditions pre-date that by at least five centuries. Whether or not Moses was a real person, it is much more probable the the Neo-assyrian account plagerized the Moses story.

- Mithra. Again you missed my point which was the accounts of Jesus pre-date Mithra similarities to Christian doctrine (written before 70 AD as Mr Taylor describes). Mithraism wasn't sanctioned by Rome until the 3rd century after Christ. Again, evidence strongly suggests practicianers of Mithraism borrowed from Christains. See "The Roman Cult of Mithra" by Manfred Clauss. Perhaps the timing is close enough to be debatable but hardly a slam-dunk on your part. Preponderance of evidence heavily favors Christianity.

- Soul. Cite one example in the animal kingdom that bridges the gulf between humans and other animals in the area of abstract thought, reason, sense of purpose, and the ability to express and be understood. Evolution theory doesn't even come close to explaining why at least some creatures would have developed some of these abilities. I would have to see some very credible examples to convince me that the soul is not the reason for our uniqueness. And no, Coco the "talking" gorilla won't cut it.

Danny, please don't respond if you are going to go into another one of your meaningless rants or if you plan to regurgitate your same stale arguments. If you want to debate facts however, feel free.
