What more evidence to you need that a Lorax exists, then Dr. Suess' The Lorax?

How about ANY?

Evidence that the Bible is at all a reliable source would be a good start ... a bit tricky to find, though, given all the internally contradictory bits.

What the hell?!? A book isn't proof!

I dunno, how about: Some. Or: Any.

Lots of evidence.

Speaking personally, if you are expecting me to live my life by its archaic rules, to accept it as an accurate account of human history and to forget what I know about science in favor of creationism, then you had better have a lot of evidence.

The Bible is evidence that some people a few thousand years ago had overactive imaginations and didn't know shit about science.

Stolen Sumerian/Babylonian tales vs hard evidence? I ignore the bible. No contest.

Several historical sources that corroborates the Bible.
How about some "forensic" evidence of the existence of gods? Fingerprints, cat scans, DNA profiles, retina scans, things like that.

Any evidence. You've provided none. All the religious scholars over all this time can prove none of it. The cities and rulers mentioned don't count as many other cultures predating Abrahamic religions can also do this, and many of those cultures were never mentioned by the Bible.
Homer's ahead of all Biblical claims of lost cities as Troy has been (after long being considered a legend) located. It wouldn't surprise me a Soddom and Gammora or Jericho is found, and found to be earthquake victims

@ Canadiest, Jericho is the oldest continually-inhabited city in the area. Bets are, it was there before Gawd scraped some dirt together for the Adam thing.

Whoops? really, my dumb.

Exactly! Now I know my therapist is wrong! WHEEEE!!!!

Evidence for what?
That countless trees have been murdered to print a zillion copies of a book which is even more useless than a telephone directory from 1921? I have more than evidence for that - Rapture Ready, for instance.
Other than that, the bible is evidence only for the almost depressing extent to which people can be deluded by meaningless crap.

You either don't understand what "evidence" means, or you have never bothered to read and understand the Holey Babble. My money is on 'both'.

"What more evidence do you need than the BIBLE?"
That a bunch of Bronze Age goatfuckers had ideas above their stations? If that's all you want, fine.
But for the rest of us who live on Planet Reality, enquiring minds need to know, and all that jazz.
It's the reason why you have the computers you have to spew your fundie bullshit, you know.

None! That's why I'm getting a lobotomy this afternoon!

Allegory for Jesus
Sane response: "Any for all matters that aren't specifically
Waffler response: "Well, some would be nice, but the Bible is a perfectly cromulent source for now"
Fundamentalist response: "None! And evidence that isn't supported by a literal reading of the Bible will be promptly disregarded!"
