Ok, thanks Scat for citing that for all of us. But please please please, can we avoid the mudra? Because it doesn't fit the topic.
About Lilith, that is very interesting Scat and I will look into it because I honestly don't know much about the issue. Most of what you posted
though wasn't out of the bible, which is what we're focusing on here. However, you did cite from Isaiah, so let's talk about just that part,
because that's the part of your posting that ties in with the thread topic. Remember everyone, we're dealing with inconsistencies that lie WITHIN
the text. I'm going to start a thread sometime soon on these other issues some of you are touching on about the validity of the bible as a whole and
it's origins and how it was compiled etc etc etc. So Scat, this is why I'm just focusing on this one verse you cited. I would love to discuss the
rest of your post in my next thread.
Anyway, first of all, what version of the bible do you have? I checked in mine, but Lilith wasn't mentioned. My version says "there the night
creatures will also repose.." I have NIV. But I believe that whatever version you have could have mentioned Lilith.
But, even though it DOES, does that really create a contradiction from within the bible? To have a contradiction, the same topic must be addressed at
least twice, while each time the subject in question conflicts with how it is described the other times. So, because Lilith is only mentioned in this
verse, and never says anything about being Adam's wife, or living around Adam's time or anything pertaining to Genesis, there seems to be no
contradiction here. So in this way the bible remains consistent. Do you have anything to respond Scat?
