Quote# 63627

Well, I believe that the bible is the infallible word of God. To try and say that Genesis 1 is false is to say that God lied. To say that God lied is to say say he is not perfect. To say God is not perfect is to say that he is not God. To say that God is not God is to say he doesn't exist. To say this, is to say that Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are all just made up out of no where.

"To say this, is to say that Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are all just made up out of no where."

Pretty much right on the money.

Genesis 2: God lies about the fruit and death.
Genesis 3: The serpent tells the truth about the fruit and knowledge.

:. "Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are all just made up" as you said.

Well, I wouldn't say made up per se. Stolenn shamelessly from other mythologies is probably more accurate.

So, is that supposed to discourage us?

"Well, I believe that the bible is the infallible word of God."

How nice. Now support this belief with valid, empirical scientific evidence.

"To try and say that Genesis 1 is false is to say that God lied."

No, it's to say that whoever wrote it was ignorant of scientific discoveries that wouldn't be made for another 4,000 years or so.

Unless you're one of those goofy fuckers who thinks Gawd put pen to paper and wrote the Wholly Babble personally...

"To say that God lied is to say say he is not perfect."

He's not. Read your book.

He's vengeful, wrathful, petty, jealous, spiteful and an all around prick until you get to the NT which, by the way, appears to have been nothing more than a massive public relations job to gain converts to a "new" religion while trying to tie it to a longstanding tradition to give it some sort of validation as being true.

"To say God is not perfect is to say that he is not God."

Why? Who says a god has to be perfect?

"To say that God is not God is to say he doesn't exist."

Non-sequitur. Not being god doesn't mean the entity doesn't exist at all you moron.

"To say this, is to say that Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are all just made up out of no where."

Your point?

To say Genesis is false need oonly to imply that it deserves more than your horribly limiting, mindless literal interpretation. That renders the rest of your post gibberish.

god is probably closest to Ares in personality.

You know, chaotic.

god is not god because he is not perfect because he does not exist because god is not god because he is not perfect because he does not exist because god is not god because he is not perfect because he does not exist because....

Dr. Novakaine

Your line of reasoning would be beautiful if you reconsidered that very first sentence.

By the way, I know quite a few Christians who don't take everything in the Bible at its literal word. They're still Christians, believe it or not. Why? Maybe they can see that the Bible, written by people who had no concept of our current scientific knowledge, wasn't meant to be a literal interpretation.

I believe that the bible is the infallible word of god even though it is obviously bullshit because if god doesn't exist then I will die. That can't be the case obviously.

I think by George he's got it! Oh wait.... re-read the first sentence... so close, and yet so far.

You could say that god is a perfect liar.

In the beginning, God said, "Let there be light." and there was, and He saw that it was good. Later, on the Fourth Day, when He got round to it, He created the two lights in the sky to govern the Day and the Night- the Sun and the Moon. But, where did the light come from on the first day, that took care of everything through the third day? No one sems to know, as God has never provided us with a satisfactory answer. To say this proves Genesis is false is to say that God lied. "Oh, dear, I hadn't thought of that." said God, and disappeared in a puff of logic.

To say this, is to say that Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are all just made up out of no where.

Or, you know, if there is a God according to the Christian tradition, and He's the sort of guy who would take on mortal flesh, spend a lot of time teaching in parables and then die symbolically for all mankind, maybe, just maybe, that's the sort of a God who would assume his creations would understand what a metaphor is.

Yeah, so?

Actually, Christianity, Judaism and Islam were made up by men. Ordinary human men.

To try and say that Genesis 1 is false is to say that God lied.

No, I think what the majority of Christians (e.g., Catholics and mainstream Protestants) would say is if you think Genesis 1 is false, you've misinterpreted Genesis 1. That's a lot more likely (and a lot less arrogant) than assuming you're right and the whole of science has misinterpreted reality.
