Reading the Bible

Started this discussion. Last reply by Reggie Dec 14, 2011. 36 Replies

I am a recently "outed" atheist.  Whenever I discuss atheism with a believer, I find myself using other people's arguments.  They are perfectly valid and reasonable arguments, however I would like to…Continue

"I don't think we are on the same plane.  The truth need not be accepted by apes the moment one of them discovers it in order to be true. And the apes that are slower to adapt a truth will suffer for it more often than not. What I…"

"Y trumps in truth. But, X, stands atop the mountain. Just as Galileo, 'Y', was subdued by the church 'X', for proving Copernicus' heliocentric universe true. But as time passed Galileo was given credit. So, I guess truth…"

"Perfection or imperfection is irrelevant. We live in the universe and it is what it is.  Yes, it does pay to be least wrong.  While you can be convincing that X is better, when others show that Y trumps it, then you lose.  "

"There's always a degree of wrong, living in a universe of imperfection. But then again, if it wasn't in perfect equilibrium, would we be here having this discussion? Does it pay to be least wrong, or does it pay to be most convincing? "

"I'm not well versed on historical research, but the concept makes perfect sense to me in scientific terms and I have no problems applying it to historical research. Would you say that Newtonian mechanics is wrong because…"

"I like the quote, but in a way it's flawed. With lack of proof, they're equally wrong. But, with proof, of course we know that thinking the earth is flat is wronger. So, who's to say that the words in a history book are more accurate…"

"I erased them so that my wife would never stumble upon what a real man looked like while nude, drenched in baby oil, and reenacting Marilyn Monroe poses.  I can't compete with that."

"I disagree with some of the other answers here; I think it is important to have a thorough knowledge of both sides of any argument before an informed decision is made. Ideally, that is the case.  But that doesn't mean it is always the…"

"Sarah.. I've found a website which has most if not all of the translations currently of the Bible. It compares the same passage in several different versions. It allows you to see the emphasis one version puts on a phrase in relation to…"

"The Bible? I'm a Christian and even I know that the Bible has been altered for years upon years. Studying the Bible won't get you much farther than studying a history book in high school. After all, history is written by the victors. Take…"

Dale Headley replied to Sarah Casing's discussion 'Reading the Bible'
"Sarah:  my first suggestion is to realize that the Bible is not one book, but many.  With that in mind, I suggest you CAREFULLY read "The Book of Genesis."  The language in this introductory book is not so…"

Bryan Stuart replied to Sarah Casing's discussion 'Reading the Bible'
"Yes, you are correct, most atheist do have a greater knowledge of the Bible than those who like to show off their clothes on Sundays. Try reading the New International Version of the Bible, the bullshit is the same, it's just easier to read. I…"
