how to prove a creationist wrong
Perfection's Imperfect Revelation
The Bible is supposedly God's perfect Word. It contains instructions to humankind for avoiding the eternal fires of hell. How wonderful and kind
of this God to provide us with this means of overcoming the problems for which he is ultimately responsible! The all-powerful God could have, by a
mere act of will, eliminated all of the problems we humans must endure, but instead, in his infinite wisdom, he has opted to offer this indecipherable
amalgam of books which is the Bible as a means for avoiding the hell which he has prepared for us. The perfect God has decided to reveal his wishes in
this imperfect work, written in the imperfect language of imperfect man, translated, copied, interpreted, voted on, and related by imperfect man.
No two men will ever agree what this perfect word of God is supposed to mean, since much of it is either self- contradictory, or obscured by
enigmatic symbols. And yet the perfect God expects us imperfect humans to understand this paradoxical riddle using the imperfect minds with which he
has equipped us. Surely the all-wise and all-powerful God would have known that it would have been better to reveal his perfect will directly to each
of us, rather than to allow it to be debased and perverted by the imperfect language and botched interpretations of man.
