If the Bible had made that claim, the sceptics would use it

as prime evidence of how wrong the Bible can be.

Maybe some old prophet DID tell mountain to move.

Matthew 17:20 - And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Matthew 21:21 - Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.

Good quotes, but

you no doubt also know that "mountain" symbolically means "government" on occasion. Bad news, indeed, for some. Happy (Devil face belongs here, but don't know how to make it.)

True, but now they'd have to eat their words
by Ziks511 / May 21, 2006 9:17 PM PDT

wouldn't they, because science has discovered it to be true, and has discovered the mechanism by which the mountain moved. Had Joshua blown the shofar 3 times and walked around it and it moved, Science would have looked at its peculiarities (the top older than the bottom and said, can't explain that, maybe they're right. Now they'd be saying well, he did what he did, and it did what it did, causation or just good luck with the timing? Who knows? Scientists are loath to adopt any single explanation when there are so many possible scenarios.

the next thing science will tell us

is that the ark myth was a legend. the 'true story' was ancient astronauts carried all the dna, stem cell research, and bio research in their lunch buckets and left them here because it was too dark.

peer review process when people were making up the bible. That would have been useful.

it up. Most folks agree with my view.

However, you really just wanted to slip in a little zinger to get a response didn't you?

I read a similar scenario on the Columbia
by drpruner / May 23, 2006 7:49 AM PDT

River basin. (NW USA)
Says there was a glacial ice dam 'way upriver that failed catastrophically during a melt period. Scientist says the noise alone would have killed living things. Must have been an atmospheric shock wave from your mountain, also.

BTW, thanks for sharing - another blankety-blank possibility to keep us awake nights. Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
