I had a discussion with a couple of Atheists on Craigslist who claimed nothing in the Bible is true.
I offered the response that Pontius Pilate was a real person.
They demanded proof. I offered this:
I posted a link to the discovery of the Pilate Stone in Israel, which had Pilate's dedication of the ampitheater to Tiberius Caesar.
One Atheist countered "it's probably a fake". I replied, "Sorry, but it's been accurately dated and considered authentic."
The other Atheist in the discussion went on a tirade, calling me a lying "Jesus freak", and refusing to open the links I provided. He claimed the stone would soon be discovered as a fake. I responded by telling him "It's been accepted as authentic for 50 years". His response was, "I'll take it with a grain of salt", and he still refused to look at the links.
Gee, I thought Atheists were all about reliance on facts. Yet, when I provided facts to a couple of them, they went nuts.
Perhaps Atheism really is pathological, vs. just being "logical".
