    Do you understand the meaning of the word "prophecy"? A prophecy is the description of events that will occur BEFORE they occur. I will start a thread on that topic later on.

    Which facts are you referring to? The ones you dreamed up? That statement is proof positive you don't know what you're talking about. Many Bible prophecies have been confirmed by archeology and secular history--neither of which are connected in any way with the Bible.

The mere fact that all Jews did not view Jesus as the prophesized Messiah is "evidence" that the prophecy was not fulfilled in reality, but only by the pen of an unknown author who had prior knowledge of the prophecy.

    You're not making much sense here. Just because the Jews rejected Jesus Christ as the Messiah does not mean Jesus was not the Messiah. It simply means the Jews, as a nation, rejected him. As I recall, some of them did acknowledge him as the Messiah and became his disciples.

    I can make prophecies too. I predict a crazy person is going to post in this thread very soon...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    Philbin ... put it all together in a PowerPoint presentation. Everything about that presentation had to be perfect.

    If any PowerPoint slide had a spelling or grammar mistake, any typo, any scheme error, that was my responsibility, just like a teacher, Philbin said.
