  • Typically you only use "Touche" when someone has presented an argument against your case which you cannot debate against, or points out a hypocrisy in your arguement which you are arguing against to begin with. So it's out of place here.

    As for your little scenario, there is no verifiable evidence the man ever existed much less died, and then we are getting into the supernatural aspects of him rising from dead.
    As for the other, it has been verified he was real, there is no reason to believe the stories of his demise are false as it certainly doens't claim any supernatural occurence, and the proof of his demise has been recorded and verified simply not released to the public at this time, but it will be available in the future as the risk assesment of releasing the details is gone over as a precaution.

  • I can prove OBL actually existed. You can't prove Jesus did.

  • LOL what a bizarre question. People live and people can be killed. People can not be killed and then rise from the dead. If you say that someone named Jesus is dead, I have no problem believing you.

  • First of all, we all know that bin Laden lived. We also have proof that he died--in the way of contemporary eye-witness accounts (we don't have to wait for a hundred years to get a written account of this). We also have DNA evidence and photographs.  Bin Laden hasn't claimed to be the Son of God, and we don't expect him to rise from the dead three days after his death.

    We have no contemporary accounts of Jesus' life or death.  We have no evidence (other than what's written in the Bible) of his existence.  We have no DNA evidence.  We have conflicting stories about his life, his death and his supposed resurrection.  There are some pretty fantastic claims that he rose from the dead. . . there are no similarities between bin Laden and the stories of Jesus.

    Where's the "touché", exactly?

  • Touche??? Nah, that's not quite a touch moment. Please try again.

    As far as I know, Osama isn't going to be rising from the dead (at least I hope not). So really you're comparing apples and oranges.
