Response to Well, your article appears to refute you

You continue to twist and distort, as usual. Now pay attention if you have the attention span to do so:

"he Missing Q Foundation

Despite Dohertys dependence on Q, we have no copies of Q, no copies of portions of Q, no references to Q in any of the early Christian writings, no references to Q in any of the early non-Christian writings, no references to Q in any of the gospels or the writings of Paul or the other letters; in fact, no conclusive evidence whatsoever that Q ever existed.[9]

Blomberg carefully stated the tenuous nature of the assumptions about Q in The Case for Christ:

Its nothing more than a hypothesis. . . . With few exceptions, its just sayings or teachings of Jesus, which once may have formed an independent, separate document. You see, it was a common literary genre to collect the sayings of respected teachers, sort of as we compile the top music of a singer and put it into a "best of" album. Q may have been something like that. At least thats the theory (26).

Do you have the ability to comprehend that, Vince? There is not evidence/proof whatsoever that "Q" ever existed and is only a hypothesis. Do you understand what a hypothesis is? Just in case you don't, I'll provide it for you:

" * mura
* ephemeral

* pugnacious
* quag

a proposition, or set of propositions, set forth as an explanation for the occurrence of some specified group of phenomena, either asserted merely as a provisional conjecture to guide investigation (working hypothesis) or accepted as highly probable in the light of established facts.
a proposition assumed as a premise in an argument.
the antecedent of a conditional proposition.
a mere assumption or guess."

So, "Q" is really nothing more than an assumption or guess that has no basis in fact, yet morons like you want to treat it as established fact, when in fact, even scholars admit there is not evidence/proof for it. Time to pull your head out of your backside, don't you think?

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God to salvation to every one that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." (Romans 1:16)
