thats nice, according to whoever wrote tthat list...cuz, i know nobody that i know, and none of my relatives in italy, or mexico even has heard of most of those books...then there are the countries where some whole villages cant read , yet have heard of the bible....
honestly i just am saying it has survived...
i do not believe in it, as i said...its like the kids "telephone" game....
none of it was probably anything like the original writings....
i just do not believe in discrediting the popularity, and crazy power it seems to have to just hang in there ...instead of being forgotten about, or a thing of the past, whatever.....
and i think it was meant to try to teach good behavior...so ....y bash on it...bash on books that encourage evil,serial killers or pedophiles....if the bible helps some people try their best to be good people , then i approve....
In the parable of the lost sheep, in the Gospel of Luke, Jesus says there shall be more joy in heaven over “one sinner that repenteth” than over 99 just persons who need no repentance. Never mind heaven: check out the joy on the Internet. In 2001, rumors started to hit the blogosphere that Antony Flew, a British philosopher born in 1923, had found God after six decades of atheism. At first Flew denied the reports. But in May 2004 he told a conference in New York that he had indeed changed his mind and become a believer.

Well, one thing that can not be disputed is that Jesus lived in this world and is more documented than Abe Lincoln or any other literature to date. So the New Testament is a collective writing from many different authors.
Science has not proven how the universe began, just theories, nor has it proven evolution, more theories. Dinosaurs killed off by an asteroid, a theory, but a better one but not proven.
So how can the Bible be discounted? Is it not another theory in a scientific realm?

First off yes there seems to many inconsistencies with our modern day science. But remember, the scriptures are not written to be 100% literal, only those who have the gift of the Set-Apart Spirit given to us from the Father Yahuwah, can actually understand its meaning. Sort of like, can a computer technician really explain everything about how the computer is built and how it functions, or can the Manufacturer or Designer really explain it to you.
Remember the scriptures cannot be explained entirely by human brains made of water, neuron pathways, salt, nerves, etc which we don't entirely understand how they function either. Only the Father Yahuwah can explain, the Designer of everything, why it works and how it works. Humans know less than 1% of the total understanding of the universe. Think about it were not eternal, how can we explain the eternal? We arent all knowing, so how can we explain everything?
I recommend you watch some videos by Kent Hovind on his theories of the Earth, or Ken Ham. It will help to clear up some things.edit on 14-4-2011 by kove400 because: (no reason given)

The word of God is eternal, scientific books come and go.
