Quote# 377

[On being asked why Christianity should be taken more seriously than any other religion]

cause of all the proof available. its historically acurate. non-christian manuscripts describe things in it like the flood and jonah and the whale which people wouldnt regularly believe in. one dude wrote that the skys did turn black early and the was an earthquake and people did rise from the dead when Jesus was crucified. And he wasnt a Christian until he saw it all.

Quit making stuff up. The Bible is wildly INaccurate. The \"dude\" was whom ever wrote the Gospel of Matthew. Hardly an unbiased source.

How can the Bible be historically accurate? It's literally filled with contradictions.

The whole contradictory nature of the bible immediately prevents it from being accurate.

Please fuck off and come back when you have something interesting and truthful to say?

BTW - lying is a sin, isn't it?

"cause of all the proof available. its historically acurate. non-christian manuscripts describe things in it like the flood."

Floods are a common occurrence, you would expect to see various legends regarding floods regardless of the Bible's veracity. In fact, many of these were EARLIER than the Christian tale, such as the Epic of Gilgamesh.

"jonah and the whale which people wouldnt regularly believe in."

"one dude wrote that the skys did turn black early and the was an earthquake and people did rise from the dead when Jesus was crucified. And he wasnt a Christian until he saw it all."

I'm pretty sure that you need to rethink that last sentence. The Gospels were definitely written by Christians and are atttributed to Christ's Apostles. So I suppose they would have thought of themselves as Jewish . . . but I don't think that's what you were going for.

Tell you what... please produce so-called "documents" that can be verified by credible, reputable historians; otherwise, please get sterilized so you can't sire children, or even worse *shudder* play even the slightest role in their upbringing.

"One dude" wrote something down at some point in time. Something that could have been just pure fantasy, or a joke, or an account of his experiences with hallucinogens, but still. That's convincing. Totally convincing.

ALWAYS TRUST THE DUDE!

So, when was Jesus born? There are two different historically accurate persons mentioned in the Bible around the time of the birth of Jesus. The only problem is; they are not contemporary.

Isn't the Bible and the Koran two of very few documents that mentions Jesus at all? Isn't it very hard to find anything in other sources relating to him?

The people who wrote the Bible stole stories from other people, like every good storyteller does. You take bits and pieces of other stories and twist them into your own. That's why there are similarities.

Saying that the Bible is historically accurate is like saying that Time Cube is accepted by a scientific consensus.
