You are beating a dead horse. This question has been resolved a long time ago, except for you and you inerrantist twins. For one thing Jesus made statements about His Return which pointedly did not have any time limits.
Matthew 24:44 (NIV2011)
44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him.
So we have two traditions of what Jesus said, one with a time frame and one with no time frame. Some people even today have put a date on His Return despite what He said and of course have been disappointed. Most people have used their God given mind to decide that He was right when He said, “Be ready all the time, because I am coming when you don’t expect Me.” Some people, unlike you, know how to determine the truth when there are two different opinions.
I do not know what you mean by special benefits to being a Christian. I would say knowing God the Father and Jesus the Savior is a “special” benefit. This is not because we are special or better than others, but on the contrary because we know that we are sinners, who trust in God and not in our own righteousness.
We also have a strong sense of right and wrong based on our love for Jesus and His love for humanity. I am bemused by the discussion of morality found on these pages. Jesus taught a relational ethic based on right relationship of love between us and God and humans with each other. It is not absolute, but caring for others, even those who oppose us.
Non-believers seem to think that Science will solve our problems, but our biggest problems are people problems and science does not address these problems. Science is not evil unless it takes the place of love. The answer is the Kingdom of God based on God’s Love, not that this is an easy answer.
The fact is Jesus is risen from the dead. We know this because many people talked to him before He returned to Heaven, and others such as Paul experienced Him after He returned to Heaven. Many of us know Jesus through the Holy Spirit.
The spirit of science is that people should not take the word of others for what is true. Christianity tells us that we can know God for ourselves, and that means you. We know that God keeps Hid promises because we know God’s love and forgiveness. If you have not, that is too bad, but that is only your experience.
You claim that people who believe in God for some reason must accept all claims of the super natural as true. You should know that this is false. It is like saying that people who trust the claims of science must accept all claims of science to be true.
Some people have said that Marxism made a science of history and said that everyone should reject faith and accept scientific socialism and the dictatorship of the proletariat. So you agree?
