Jeff,And rational historians
By your own admission you do not believe in the biblical God...am I correct in saying this?
Also, you admit to believing in evolution...in fact you have defended that concept here many times.
May I ask from where in your worldview any notion of rationality arises?...a worldview by your admission which has no God and understands that everything that exists is a result of chemicals acting and reacting in a random chance process with the ultimate goal of self-preservation in an atmosphere of survival of the fittest.
Further, if you really adhere to such a worldview then explain to me how you know your senses are reliable...I mean you say "rational historian" as if randomly acting chemicals bestow a reliable sense of past events.
