There is all kinds of evidence/proof that the bible is the inspired and dictated word of the one true God. There are whole books on the subject, if someone is genuinely interested.
For example, the Bible is full of prophecies that were fulfillment hundreds of years later. Some still being fulfilled today. That alone speaks for divine authorship.

And you get yourself into an infinite loop. Keep on going. What came before the primordial soup, what came before that, and what came before that, before that, before that, before that, before that .......... ∞

... till you realize that whoever started it all, was ALWAYS there. Otherwise it wasn't the start.

And whatever came first, could have not created himself. You can't create yourself if you don't exist.

there is no infinite loop if we just assume our universe is the first. I am not sure why that is os offensive when we just don't know.

is nothing for ever more freaky then something for ever to you? Both freak me out to the point of locking up.

Well, so far, we have had appeal to Faith, science in he Bible, loads of books claiming it is true and as irrelevant appeal to first cause. Do any of the believers have anything valid for the Bible being inspired by God?

P.s my post 10 pretty much demolished those Truth in the Bible claims. But Blind faith is blind indeed.

You really should sit and fully read the Bible with the same honest scrutiny you would reading the Koran or other religion that makes extraordinary claims. And, while doing so, ask yourself as you go, does this reflect the god I imagine. There are billions of other humans that will say the exact same thing you are saying about another god.

why?

the reason we don't believe is because of the traits you assign that thing of yours. So I am a little confused by your stock selections.

Has anyone found proof/evidence of YOUR liking in the last 2000 years? No.

Why would you expect anyone do it now?

It's been 2000 years now.
If there was already a proof of your liking found by someone before us, then you wouldn't be an Atheist, would you?

I think 2000 years is good sample, to realize that the proof of your liking not there.

If we had video footage of the Hand of God touching the Bible, and I bet that you would claim the video was a fake. There is simply no evidence to satisfy someone of your mindset. Satan has you living in deception which is really sad. Your post 10 is a lot of fluff that can't withhold much scrutiny.
