Let's review these claims, shall we? (This is the first time I've watched this, answers are written in 'real time')
Fact #1: The bible is the best Selling Book of All Time
Review #1: Correct!
Fact #2: The bible is written over a long period of time by various men
Review #2: Correct!
Fact #3: The bible claims to be the word of God
Review #3: Correct!
Fact #4: Jesus did not author any book in the bible.
Review #4: Correct!
Fact #5: The bible predicted the rise and fall of empires centuries in advance
Review #5: False.
Criteria for a true prophecy
~ It must be accurate.
~ It must be unambiguous.
~ It must be improbable.
~ It must have been unknown.
List of wrong prophecies within the bible:
~ Nebuchadnezzar would destroy Tyre
~ Egypt would be a barren wasteland
~ The Nile will dry up
~ Triumph of Judah
~ The Nile will dry up and sea will drain
~ Egyptians will speak the language of Canaan
~ Failure to smite Jebus
~ Israel will extend from the Red Sea to the Euphrates
~ Israel will live in peace with its neighbors
~ Davidic line will endure forever
With this fabulous track record, the only thing we can conclude is that the bible's prophetic words are subject to coincidence just like any other
prophetic claim or guess.
Fact #6: The bible is Scientifically Accurate:
Review #6: FALSE!!!!
I can go into detail on all of these if you wish, all these topics are in the bible and the bibles description of them is false:
~ Anatomy of insects
~ The smallest seed
~ Planetary formation
~ Rotation of the Earth
~ Bat classification
~ Reproduction with Variation
Fact #7: The bible is historically accurate.
Review #7: FALSE
We've already discussed how it's historical accuracy is beyond flawed. You have yet to explain your rejection of my information on the
Fact #8: Today's bible is very accurate (referring to contradiction)
Review #8: FALSE
The bible is full of contradiction. I can provide a list for you if you need.
Fact #9: Reading the bible has changed the lives of many people
Review #9: Correct!
It certainly has changed many lives, for the better? If a false reality is for the better, then yes.
One could argue that anything that ever exists has "Changed the lives of many people". The Matrix movies have "changed the lives of many people", it's
quite evident on this Forum when many people actually believe the Matrix could (or does) exist.
This point is.... pointless
Fact #10: There is a bible called "The Wicked Bible"
Review #10: No idea. don't care.
There you have it. you've provided no information at all and have provided absolutely no validity to your claims.
I was just wondering whos mind was blown by this video?
Though admittedly, it blows my mind that it has 140k views
Title baiting, it can achieve wonders.
Plus, faith is a bit difficult to sustain when we have things like science, which draws from the natural, not the supernatural. It's only expected
that a person who uses their mind one way -through objective reasoning- would want to apply that to faith as well: even if doing so kind of stretches
the truth a good distance
