You still don’t know the difference between evidence and proof.
Are you sure your not understanding the definition of the term
The Bible as “documentation” is not proof. It’s evidence, but only if it can be corroborated.
Please enlighten me on how your going to
corroborate supernatural events? And just because they can't be because of that does no automatically disprove them.
I’ve already given you examples of where the Bible is either uncorroborated or demonstrably wrong. Your response to this is simply that “it
can’t be supported by objective evidence”. Can you show me some examples where your claims of interventionism, and keep in mind that they are your
claims based on your interpretation of the text, have been corroborated by objective evidence?
Ok there are a few, for one Target food is corroborated on the fact that the bible claims we were given everthing, like plants herbs and
animals, but that none of these things are from our home. What a coincidence, we appear to have no target food.
The bible claims we have every herb, every plant, every animal. What a coincidence, we appear to be in our 6th largest extinction.
God claims to hand down to us an unmesured amount of punishments, and he claims that these punishments will also be hereditary. What a coincidence,
Pye exposes that we have over 4000 defects in our genes, that are explained to be only possible through cruelty or sloppy DNA work. This amount of
defects tops any other species by over 1000%.
Another odd coincidence is how we appear to have to ties to this planet, while the bible also explains that earth is not our home. Aside from
breathing air, and drinking water, we have no instinctive qualitys tied to this planet like some animals have. We can't even safely drink the water
here unless its from a rare safe source or processed.
Another odd coincidence is how genesis looks like they were abducted, thats what aliens do, they abduct people.
Again, backwards. The burden of proof is on you to show that the parts you’re using as “documentation” are corroborated in some way. But
you’ve stated multiple times now that these “supernatural” events are beyond the scope of objective evidence, so your means of doing so should
be very interesting.
The fact that the astronimacal line up of our planets was included in the bible tells you it's not a fantasy book. Even if they thought the
planet was flat, which is not what I'm reading, there was a period where people thought that. It sounds more to me like your grasping at straws to
disprove the bible. I think its going to be pretty hard to disprove, or even prove for that matter. All of the citys mentioned in the bible are real
places still today, except for the ones that were bombed.
Sure there are. There are verses that use the Hebrew word for “disc” i.e. a flat, round object. There is a completely separate word for
“sphere” in the same language which wasn’t used for those verses. Look it up.
And you think by something being round and flat at the same time, that your understanding it correctly?
So you don’t seem to understand the concept of local flooding vs. global flooding…
There are many parts of this earth that appear to have
been flooded at one time. Just out my West door, is a cannyon that could be several miles wide, and a good several hundred feet down to where the
water now rests. This area I live next to appears to have been home to a large water way at one time. Now its just a small Spokane river. Where did
all this water go, and where did it come from.
… or the concept of geological uplift. Good to know that your grasp of geology is up there with your grasp of biology.
Right and there is only uplift next to where water once appears to have been. Next thing your going to tell me it's plate techtonics at work. Either
way, even with your example there is no excuse for the fossils.
Maybe you should do some research on the authors of what you’re calling “documentation”.
The authors are all fine, they can't all be wrong. People don't lie, the person lies, in most cases.
Present your evidence.
That is the evidence, millions of people can't be mind readers.
Can you present some evidence that being near ground zero of a nuclear detonation would turn you into a “pillar of salt”?
First it could have been a raw explanation that they turned to ash, however I'm sure with the right set up you can turn people into salt.
