I am sure it is not. Which is what I wrote (you should read it as "since
the Bible does not predate the beginning of Christianity, the argument is
moot.") I am sorry if my style was elliptic, since I previously had no
intention to continue this discussion any further.

I assume I should apologize for being off topic. So, I beg your pardon and
everyone's else pardon to have followed up on this one.

May I suggest to return to my post that started this drifting thread:

I am sorry if it was not caught at first time, but it seems to me we are
right now in complete agreement. In the case my English was faulty on the
first shot, I mean that what I wrote is exactely the same as your
conclusion in the post dated 2000-10-04 10:01:08 -0600.
