New Podcast: Godcast

August 5th, 2013

So, what could an atheist and a theist do that would be entertaining yet educational, and not end up being a hand-bag fight? Talk about religion, obviously!

Well, not really. Here’s an excerpt from the “about” page:

Welcome to our podcast companion website. My name is Andrew, and although I am an atheist, I understand the importance of the Bible, not only as a religious document, but as a force for cultural and political change. I have no doubt that reading the Bible will do nothing to change my views about God and religion, but remaining ignorant of its contents will gain me nothing. After deciding to take a stab at the most influential book in history, I realized that there are not many good guides that are aimed at non-believers like myself. Most Bible study material is made by Christians and for Christians, with a particular theological purpose in mind. I decided to read the Bible myself, with the aid of a long time acquaintance who has spent nearly a decade learning Hebrew and Greek so that he could do his own translations, and discover what God really had to say.

So, there you go. We currently have 5 episodes up at the moment: they’re not going to be “weekly” updates; mainly “do a show whenever we’re free” kinda things. So if you have any questions/comments/ideas/want to be on a show, let us know!

Dead Sea Scrolls: Isaiah Complete & More

July 25th, 2013

Well it’s the usual time again: more Dead Sea Scrolls transcriptions!

TWTY has the final two manuscripts of Isaiah now online, plus the last three manuscripts of Jeremiah as well, bringing the total now to 31 complete books out of 38! (Remember, Esther was nowhere to be seen in the Dead Sea Scrolls – neither a manuscript of the book, nor a quotation of it anywhere in the non-Scriptural writings of the Dead Sea Sect.)

There’s also been a bit of “re-arranging” on TWTY: anything pertaining to the Renewed Covenant now appears on a collective page; anything regarding the Apocrypha or non-Canonical writings are on their own page; and there are two new sections: Septuagint and Tanakh

I’ll let you guess what the last two are in reference to ;) (Also, there’s nothing yet on them)

Isaiah

1Q Isaiahb (1QIsab)
4Q57 Isaiahc (4QIsac)

Jeremiah

2Q13 Jeremiah (2QJer)
4Q70 Jeremiaha (4QJera)
4Q72 Jeremiahc (4QJerc)

“No need to reply…”

June 8th, 2013

I woke up today to find an email in my TWTY inbox – something I always look forward to. However this email was rather odd, as it came from someone whom put their email address as “noneedtoreply@gmail.com”, indicating immediately that this person would not want to engage in any sort of meaningful discourse (always a shame).

So I’d thought I’d share his email on here. I couldn’t email him back to confirm his permission, so I’m going to presume that he wouldn’t’ve had any objections:

You wrote that you want to honestly seek the truth, but from what you put on your website, you are guilty of what you say others do. Almost everything you say is riddled with incorrect assertions, which show that you can read neither Hebrew nor Greek. Yet you put up your own “translation” which is nothing but nonsense. If you are truly honest, you will take down your foolishness, but if you are not, I will fully expect you to ignore my words. For that reason there is no need to reply, but only do what is right before God.

Now, he makes many claims such as that TWTY makes “incorrect assertions”, shows that the ability to read Hebrew or Greek is lacking, and that the translations are “nothing but nonsense”… but then gives absolutely no evidence to support his brash (and completely incorrect) claims. There is nothing brought forward to demonstrate an “incorrect assertion” (maybe that my name is ‘Stephen’? Obviously an incorrect assertion – I’m actually Mr. Tickle), where something has been incorrectly read in Hebrew or Greek, or what exactly is incorrect in the translations. I can neither correct nor defend something if I don’t actually know what I’ve done wrong. The answer of “everything” is not feasible in this case.

So, David (the person who sent the above email) – please either email back showing evidence of your claims, or feel free to post in the topic created just for you in the For All section of the forums (which means you can post without having to sign up) - Topic Link

Failing that, nothing is going to be removed from the TWTY. It isn’t a habit of this website to give any credence to moronic ramblings.
