    so lets review
    you took time to make a thread to challenge me - i accepted
    you provided no sources or facts - even though you asked me to - which i did

    until you have any 'new information' or facts aka evidence to combat my claims

    what is the point of your dispute?

    Logic. You keep thinking this is some kind of fight, but it's not.

    It's questioning your abilty to perform basic logic checks.

    Which you failed.

    All penguins are black and white.

    Some TVs are black and white.

    Therefore, all penguins are TVs.

    more buffoonery
    to avoid the subject title and discussion
    and the information provided that backs up my claims

    Alice can dodge all day
    but you lost this debate due to your lack of knowledge

    more schooling is available for you

    sure, it's possible the reverse is true. like you say, in ancient history nothing is certain. things are only more likely and less likely. in this case, that hypothesis is significantly less likely given the fact that there's no indication the hebrews existed as people at the time of ancient sumer.

    my take is that you can't be certain of some event in history without absolute proof but that shouldn't shut down a hypothesis, it should simply be taken as something that might or might not be true with the degree of confidence assigned to it corresponding to the quality of its evidence, coherence and explanatory power.

    i think the fact that other cultures around the ancient israelites seemed to share some of their mythical themes and plot-lines is something that needs explaining one way or the other.

    I don't get the point of the long argument in this thread. Try reading the Eridu Genesis, and Atrahasis, before getting into a useless argument over the Epic of Gilgamesh and whether or not Genesis borrowed from the Sumerians.

    I was saying it for Alice's sake anyway.

    She can keep spouting off names of fallacies while sticking her fingers in her ears, ignoring the big pink elephant which is the striking parallels between the Sumerian stories and the Book of Genesis.

    My point was, that there are "striking parallels" between a lot of things. But that in of itself is not sufficient to jump to a conclusion.

    To say that it is, is ridiculous. The entity known as Ass Napkin Ned keeps saying he's spouting "facts" but that doesn't change the fact that he's drawn conclusions without sufficient evidence.

    The entire point of this thread was to help guide him to a whole set of other facts which one can base a hypothesis on without having to jump to any conclusions. But he's fought me each and every step of the way.

    I mean, when I ask, "when have these two people ever interacted with each other," and he replies with, "they never did except in a fictionally story," well then... then... yeah... you get it.

    Actually i used evidence from both Genesis and EOG which did 'Support my Facts' and prove my Conclusion to be True.

    Where are your Sources that dispute mine?

    Why cant you prove what i am saying False?

    perhaps another schooling for you is needed
    you lost this debate terribly

    And you're an expert at ignoring the point and presenting your own.

    When you're on a committee to address global warming, be sure to ignore the subject in favor of the dangers of human killing robots.

    well your questions were answered
    your points were acknowledged and they didnt have a leg to stand on
    you provided no sources
    you arent very knowledgeable about Ancient Sumer - let alone its writings that predate the bible

    we conclude - you dont do much debating right?

    Again, you disregard the point and shift the focus to something totally unrelated.
