CrakrJak: "I'll take Jesus` words over any others and no proof is needed to know they are the truth."
But you`ve never heard Jesus` words. All you`ve ever heard is what other people *CLAIM* that Jesus said and did. So you aren`t taking Jesus` word, you`re taking the word of some nameless authors of the Gospels without any evidence that they`re right.
Furthermore, what kind of lame deity is afraid of a little fact checking to determine if what he/she/it said is true? If I were a god I`d make sure my claims were easily verifiable.
@5Cats: You`re conflating the "trust" definition of "faith" with the blind "belief without evidence or in spite of the evidence" definition of "faith" we`re using here. They`re two different things.

Also, "So you dismiss the entirety of the article outright. Well, that does prove that you are a Christian." I'm an atheist who was raised Jewish and I also think the article was crap.

Lord_Jereth - most of that stuff on that page has been shown over and over to either be fake, exaggerated, un-provable, allegorical, or just plain nonsense. Some of those "items" that creationists have found they refuse to let them be tested by other scientists (peers).
Its not my job to prove these things are false mind you, its your job to prove to me they are not. The burden of proof doesn't lay with the one in disbelief; yet the one making a claim.
