Bible Contradictions in Graph Form

So I'm wasting time not working and run across this blog that was linked to Reddit. It's short and to the point in getting out a Graph put out by the Reason Project. it lists 439 bible contractions and where they are found in the Bible. Often not in just one place, but multiple locations showing the conflicting statements everywhere. It's so cool. I will certainly be saving a copy of the PDF for myself. the link is zoom ready but annoying with reloading each time you attempt to scroll. On to your studies children!

Almost looks like most of the contradictions is concentrated in the New Testament.

That's probably because the new testament is so much shorter.

I got my ass handed to me in a discussion a few months ago and was introduced Bart Ehrman. He delves into that in Misquoting Jesus and how scribes of the New Testament were sloppy when compared to Old Jewish scribes. I'm sure there are plenty of other reasons, but that strikes me on the surface. He gives a speech here about it. The whole thing is an hour long. I hoped on the Elliptical Machine one night and watched it.

Seems this guy is the real source and deserves some credit. Moreover he has other great graphs.

Right. Project Reason Credits him with the idea. Being a Christian I'm sure that he wouldn't be interested in doing exactly what project Reason did. I liked his location graphs. it lays out the location of the events of the Bible. I look at it and think, so we have like a 500 mile radius for all of the events of the Bible. That's pretty limited for a god looking to save all of the world and humanity.

I liked it too. I copied the entire image, piece by piece, and then stitched it together into a single png image. I cut out a bit of the "empty" space to make the file size smaller. Just 'cause I have no life, apparently. And in case anyone else wants it... bc.png

Thanks for doing that. It scrolls much better. I tried to put it in my photos so that I could feature what you've done, but alas the file is too large still. Nice work!
