You're the one who stated it was a hoax. I would think that a hoax would be easier to prove.

So, go for it.
Sorry that it takes up there life, sad way to waste it, trying to understand a book filled with scientifically and logically impossible events, the flood, which has been proven to not be possible based on science and reality. Evolution which has tons of evidence that has been examined, unlike creation which has none. Not to mention a book filled with tons of inconsistencies and plagiarism for other religion..and more but with a broken arm it takes to long to type.

You an talk to Rifleman,, who is a scientist and can explain the scientific reasons to you, and I believe there are quite a few on here that have studied the plagiarisms in the bible as well.


So what do you have to show your bible true?

You should skip chapters to the Gospel of John because if you read all those old books you will really be a delusional athiest because the love of God can be misleading in those old books ... See unbelief is a sin and if you do not believe from the get go you will have a hard time discerning the truth of the Love of God..... be blessed.....

Nope sorry, I did not start out an unbeliever, just grew up investigated and used logic and reasoning to become the atheist I am now.

Humans are the authors - inspired by God to write what they wrote.

God is responsible for the content.

First I want to thank you for that link about 50 proofs that God is imaginary. Good stuff there. I plan to use that link. But I wouldn't use it to disprove God if I were you. Most of points are easy to refute. Such as #13 which talks about the OT having instructions for salvery. I mean how does that disprove God?? Or the one about "Life after death". The afterlife of Bacteria idea was rich.

Oh I have MANY MANY MANY more sites, other than the light hearted sites, of which you found two of the fifty to disagree with. Oh and no, using christian sites to prove you book, doesn't work. LOL

I love your logic-
See the DIFFERENCE between an Atheist and a Christian, is we actually examined evidence or a lack thereof to determine our position. Whereas the Christian, goes by what there church, bible and other believers say.DO you consider science sites atheist sites as well, is everything that doesn't support your belief atheist? I can tell you if I discovered any REAL evidence of a god, I would change my position, how could I not, I wouldn't deny it, why would I?. UNLIKE Christians that immediately fight and ignore any position other than one that supports there belief. I have read the bible, gone to church and looked for something to affirm it. I have ALSO looked at the other side, which has much more to offer in the way of evidence.

Nope - not demons, sons of God (even though I understand the correlation based upon church tradition about the affair).

I think those are just bad translations into English, right?
