Wow, there's soooo many from beginning to end. Geez, just one? Hmmm, I'll have to say that whole hallucination at the end - Revelations.

That story isn't actually ment to be taken literally. Apocalyptic writing was a style of the time. The reason it contains god is because god was the driving influence when it was written. I don't know why they put it in the bible...maybe it was the one that struck the most fear into the readers?
How about living inside a whale?? Now in my oppion that is the most unbelivable story I have ever heard!
there are several really. first the idea that a man managed to cram all the animal species in the world into an arc
And back to Noah, can't happen. Sorry, no way in hell. First, all animals. If the world were to flood you would need to get the salt water fish and freshwater fish. Why? Because the water would mix, the water would be to salty for freshwater and to fresh for saltwater fish.
also the idea that humans tried to build a tower to heaven and where ultimately scattered across the world thus leading to the creation of races and different languages.
The guy taken to heaven on a chariot was abducted by an alien, they just thought it was god.

that jesus is god. if he was god he couldn't have been born or died or resurrected. he would be too busy being omnipresent.
Too right God is omnipresent but his son didnt need to be. He was All God / All Man. A paradox.
If he was all not all man he wouldnt be a perfect sacrifice in replace for another human. If he was only human his one rightous life would only be the perfect sacrifice to replace one sinners life. As he was God he could save everyone.
Jesus is just one part of the trinity. If you cant grasp that jesus was God how could you grasp that the trinity is 3 of God in one (another Paradox).
