Quote# 7016

The Bible is not simply a book of stories. We have over 24,000 original transcripts of the New Testament.... Want a comparison, well lets take the book that has the second most original trascripts, thats The Illiad, it has 650. But nobody is arguing against the Illiad, why because you dont care, and you accept thats we was written.

There are NO (zero, nada, zip) original transcripts of the NT. Until you get the facts on a subject it is best of just listen.

What do you mean nobody argues against the Illiad? Every time I try to tell people about my good buddy the Cyclops* they laugh at me!

*I know the cyclops is technically from the Odyssey, but something about the phrase \"My good buddy the Cyclops\" just sounds really good.

\"Original transcripts\" of the New Testament?

Holy oxymoron, Batman!

At least he's comparing one collection of mythical stories with another. That's progress of a sort.

1) There are zero original texts of the NT. The earliest known surviving fragment dates from around 125ce. If you have something earlier, submit it to a museum ASAP.
2) No-one argues about the Iliad because it's fiction and doesn't claim to be anything but.

We accept that the books of the Bible were written. What you're missing here is that your new Testament is a compilation of many, unlike the Iliad which is a single work by a solitary author.

Again, your best comparision is the collected work that is Grimms Fairie Tales.
