Hi, Robert,I get the sense that you feel like you are asking a splime, reasonable question. I wonder if you are frustrated with the seemingly smart-alec replies. To us it isn't a reasonable question. Try to imagine the question "But WHICH argument for leprecauns do you find most unconvincing?" Also, although this may not be your intent, many of us have been in these kinds of conversations. "Well, if I guess I had to pick one, argument 32 is the worst." "Aha! So you are saying argument 29 might be valid." I really don't think it is ever a waste of time to stop and think. Look for yourself - now that you've started thinking about it, how can you justify believing any of it when so much of it is contradictory or downright wrong? If you can sort out one contradiction to your satisfaction, does that make the rest OK? I don't know of any Bible verses that say it is OK to pick and choose what you believe.
I think the challenge was to try and link certain Biblical incidents to current, or in this case, past terrorist acts, while well-intentioned, might not be as coherent I would have liked. Be that as it may, you can choose to find an answer that makes the most sense to you. I do not apologize for my attempt nor should you apologize for you seeming lack of making a more clarifying counter-argument.
