Quote# 24521

A true, honest and serious study of the bible reveals the virtual impossibility that 40 men writing 66 books without inspiration over 4000 years could have authored such a coherent, consistent and clear "story," explanation of God's purpose, His reasons for dealing with man like He did, and free gift of salvation.

This guy obviously has a severely warped definition of \"coherent.\"

coherent, consistent and clear
Never mind texts that are any of those things; how about the Bible?

\"coherent\"?

Just like the small things that not all gospels mention.



What small things?


Well, all dead people rising when Jesus died is a nice example.

If you walked into a medical library and found all the books were on medicine, would you think this was caused by divine inspiration?

Without getting into the argument about whether the 66 books are \"coherent\", the 66 books of the Bible were deliberately chosen by men from a much larger body of writing. If you choose only the books that agree with your beliefs and suppress the rest, of course they're going to agree with each other. The ones that disagreed were thrown away or burned. That's called \"editing\", not divinity.

Sigh. I wish this was a troll, but I know it most likely is not.

Is that a fact? Interesting.

The big number of incoherence would. And the big number of scientifical slopes(even for the time it was written), for example, the speaking snake, or the fact that people live 900 years. The number of contradictions would too.

Yeah, because the Bible is so coherent and consistent. Lord.

coherent, consistent and clear \"story,\"
I do not think those words mean what you think they mean.

such a coherent, consistent and clear \"story,\" explanation of God's purpose

Oh, yeah, which is why everybody's still arguing about it and there are numerous conflicting versions. Hell, it's so self contradictory that you can cherry-pick a passage in support or opposition, depending on your personal preference, of any topic you like.

His reasons for dealing with man like He did, and free gift of salvation.
Free? Monetarily, perhaps, but last time I checked you had to subscribe to his teachings for him to bother saving you from Hell. Not precisely what I'd call 'free'.

Coherent, consistent and clear?

not.

66 texts were chosen from a field of hundreds. Most of the others were voted heretical by the first Nicene Council, and targeted for destruction because they contravened the totalitarian image the Council wanted to push on the christian peasants.

My prayer of thanks goes to some unknown Coptic scribe[s] who, sometime in the third or fourth century, sequestered some very interesting [and authentic]Christian material from the church censors.

The Bible is probably one of the most heavily edited book in history.
A true, honest and serious study of the Bible would have told you that.

I do not find the bible a coherent, consistent and clear \"story. And his so called \"free\" gift is anything but.

Conherent. No, the Bible is so hopeless confusing that no one can agree on the meaning of every single thing.
Consistant. No. God tells Abhramam to kill his son. Then God gives the Jews the Ten Commandments, one of them being \"Thou Shalt Not Kill.\" Then God commands the Isrealites to go to war time and time again. Much killing ensures. And that's jus the OT.
Clear. No. Mud is clearer.

40 men writing 66 books without inspiration

um, isn't the fact that it's divinely inspired the reason they know it's Gawd's word?

Lunalelle

You're right.

It isn't coherent.

anti-nonsense

And you are right, the Bible is exactly what we would expect if 40 men wrote 66 books over 4,000 years, incoherent, inconsistent nonsense.

Most of the Bible is an edited \"cut and paste\" ripoff of various other stories and myths.

Not very good edits either. *cough*Genesis*cough*

Coherent, consistent, and clear? How do you explain over a dozen GENERATIONS of difference in Jesus's lineage between two gospels (as one tiny example)? That's a long time, you know.

I don't know what's funnier, the idea that Tychicus1769 doesn't seem to realize that his use of the world \"virtual\" essentially invalidates his entire statement, or the idea that the Bible is \"coherent, consistent, and clear.\"
