Quote# 46081

Great post Neil! What we need to know about God and Jesus is written in the Bible. There are no errors (Bible difficulties, yes; errors, no) and the “argument from silence” claim that some use to excuse their sin doesn’t hold any water.

Right - thousands of years of copying and translating the bible by hand while your native tongue slowly evolves allows your holy book to be infallible, on top of the fact that the people that were copying it were slowing losing political power and were desperately trying to hold onto it. They wouldn't be tempted to make slight alterations in order to make their cause look better.

I've got some confederated products you might be interested in purchasing...

The koran says the bible is a fib.

"Bible difficulties, yes; errors, no"

What, exactly, is a "difficulty?" If you can explain it without using the word "error" or any of its synonyms, I'll believe you.

Bible 'difficulties'???

Mr Smith

There are no errors (Bible difficulties, yes; errors, no)

Is the difficulty that it's pretty much all bullshit?

So the fact that there are two completely different Genesis stories is a "difficulty" but not an "error". Riiiiiight.

"What we need to know about God and Jesus is written in the Bible."

You just blew my mind.

"There are no errors (Bible difficulties, yes; errors, no)"

If by "Bible difficulties" you mean contradictions of scientific knowledge and itself, then I wholeheartedly agree.

"Bible difficulties"? Is that anything like a "Wardrobe malfunction"?

Kent Hovind didn't lie about his income, his form just contained a few "earnings difficulties"...much like his worldview contains some "reality difficulties"

The only "difficulty" comes from the fact that you're trying to ignore the errors.

I love how she talks about people trying to "excuse their sin."

I've encountered Christine before; she really is that much of an arrogant bitch.

The only "difficulty" with the bible is that you morons think this collection of 2000+ year old goat herder and camel driver scifi books are about reality.

"Errors"? In the BIBLE??? Pffsshhh - surely you jest, sir.

Perhaps a kerfuffle or two, maybe. Chalk 'em up to printing typos.

"There are no errors (Bible difficulties, yes; errors, no)"

So four legged insects are just "difficulties" because nobody's ever found an insect and, indeed, anything with four legs can't be classified as an insect. And here I thought it was an error.

Thanks for clearing that up.

"and the “argument from silence” claim that some use to excuse their sin doesn’t hold any water."

God incarnates himself as a human, bums around for 30 odd years performing miracles of various sorts, pisses off the Jewish priesthood and the Romans, is publicly crucified after a personal audience with Pilate and then resurrects himself after a weekend nap in a tomb, wanders around for a while talking to his disciples and then ascends into the fucking sky and nobody notices save the authors of four anonymous texts; two of which appear to be copied in good portion from a single source document.

Right. Doesn't hold water at all.

There are no bible difficulties for me. I don't believe what it says, not difficult at all.

Sure, the bible is infallible! Time for your meds.

8/28/2008 3:51:11 PM



Educate a poor ignorant soul here - what is the argument from silence?

8/28/2008 3:53:22 PM

aaa

And Quran?

It's not an error, it's a difficulty!

I assume it's the "For someone that was so active in the Old Testament, God seems to be awful quiet nowadays" or some variation therein.

Try the "difficulties, yes; errors, no" line on the ITS sometime.

If you have to use convoluted pretzel logic to explain it, then it's an error.

Quite liberal with the wite-out, aren't you?

Here's an "argument from logic": nobody really needs to know all that garbage. Just a few simple rules to keep in mind, all based upon the Golden Rule in one way or another.
