I have the words in my bible and its manuscripts show they are authenic. The burden of proof is on you guys to show they are not

You really don't understand the concept of proof, do you?

“It is authentic” is the positive assertion. Burden is on you.

Nice ass-pull. It doesn't work that way; Beside the point, if you actually have proof, please do show it. We're actually eager to see it. Oh, and none of that bafflegab about "The Bible proves the Bible". By that logic, the Quran proves the Quran, the God Delusion proves the God Delusion, and hell, my cookbooks prove food is tasty, all the time, every day, any way.

That's like me writing down that I have a 40 foot tall green elephant and then saying I have to provide no further proof other than the note and you have to prove me wrong.

Since you have nothing but ancient scrolls that are very similar to Biblical books,,,you still have nothing.
I'm amazed how you people can put so much stock in the Dead Sea Scrolls for example, which were found centuries after the Bible but tell (some) of the same tales. What the fuck do you think the Bible was collected from in the first place? They have no value as proof, only as peer literature. It's not even like half of what the DSS have is even in your Bible, any version.

I don't lie because I said so. and now the burden of proof is yours!
You're wrong I'm right! LA-LA-LA-LA1!!1!!!!!1!

All this circular logic makes me dizzy!

1) No, it doesn't work that way.
2) The earliest known Bible fragment dates from around a century after Jesus's death.
You have the manuscripts for all 66 books of the bible?!? This is incredible! Its the archeological find of the age!
Hey, wait a minute...do you even know what a "manuscript" is?
There are words in "Cinderella" and "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" too. Are they then authentic? Not in the slightest!
Burden of proof is on the one asserting a positive claim.
