Amazing, the more things change the more they stay the same. We humans still don’t know anything, while many, mostly the secular darwinist humanists claim they know almost everything. When something arises to challenge their thinking, you get a whole lot of packpeddling. Meanwhile, there has yet to be any proof that the Bible has been wrong on anything, end of story.

Well, I may or may not be a "secular darwinist," I don't know what that is, but I know there are a lot more things I don't know besides that.

But one of the things I DO know is that you wouldn't be persuaded that your statement as reproduced above is wrong, even if you were given locked-down, no-questions, bomb-resistant, angel-endorsed, carved-in-stone-by-bolts-of-lightning proof. Which I am sure there is.

The Bible has never been literally true. It's more like poetry. And that's the end of MY story.

There was no global flood 4350 years ago.

These here computer things is bad magic if you ask me.

Here are just a few contradictions to the Bible (of course, they depend on which of the 50+ versions of it you read, too):

http://www.infidels.org/library/modern/jim_meritt/bible-contradictions.html

http://www.evilbible.com/Biblical%20Contradictions.htm

http://www.unm.edu/~humanism/bible-pi.html

http://www.skepticsannotatedbible.com/

No “true believer” on another long-winded recent thread ever did anything but state that these weren’t contradictions - any of them - but offered no corroborating evidence as to why they weren’t. I expect the same, here. The profound lack of scientific acumen I have seen on this and other websites is truly shocking. The tired old creationist argument that it’s just a “theory” is so pathetic it makes me want to tear my hair out in frustration. Nuclear weapon design theory is just a theory, too. Any creationists willing to sit next to a 10-megatonner while they pop the cork? (well, you won’t feel a thing, anyway) After all, it’s only a little “theory”, right, what harm could that possibly do? I guess airplanes can’t really fly because aerodynamics is only a “theory”. The power of the weakest scientific theory is vastly superior to any nonsensical atavistic dogma written by pre-scientific primitives. At least science ADMITS it doesn’t know everything - science is a search for the truth - truth that is backed up by empirical evidence and reproducible results. Religions are static and dogmatic, they make no progress, reveal no new truths, make no new discoveries. They are mired in the ignorance of the past, and are attempts to explain the natural world by a bunch of ignorant savages. What’s really sad is the desperate lengths to which religionists will go to seize upon the discovery of any new evidence that causes a theory to be altered, however much or however slightly, as “proof” that their primitive, ignorant beliefs are true and the very foundations of modern scientific thought are crumbling under the weight of their heretical, inaccurate beliefs. I’ll give you a clue; they aren’t.

You are joking, right?

Really?

Gen. 17:1) – “Now when Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, "I am God Almighty ; Walk before Me, and be blameless;

(Gen. 18:1) Now the LORD appeared to him by the oaks of Mamre, while he was sitting at the tent door in the heat of the day.”

(Exodus 6:2-3) – “God spoke further to Moses and said to him, "I am the LORD; and I appeared to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as God Almighty , but by My name, LORD, I did not make Myself known to them.”

(Exodus 24:9-11) – “Then Moses went up with Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel, and they saw the God of Israel; and under His feet there appeared to be a pavement of sapphire, as clear as the sky itself. Yet He did not stretch out His hand against the nobles of the sons of Israel; and they saw God, and they ate and drank.”

According to these verses Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Aaron, Nadab and Abihu all saw God.

Yet......

(Exodus 33:20) – “But He [God] said, "You cannot see My face, for no man can see Me and live !"

(John 1:18) – “No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.”

(John 5:37) – “"And the Father who sent Me, He has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time nor seen His form.”

(John 6:46) - "Not that anyone has seen the Father, except the One who is from God; He has seen the Father.”

Either Moses and Abraham saw God or they didn't. Some verses say they did and some verses say they didn't.

They can't ALL be right.
