    Why blame the one's who want to carry the good book instead of the pagans who would kill them for it?

    You appear to be bent on proclaiming logic - so, using your limited logic - which came first, the chicken or the egg?

    Man has written in the Bible that it was the chicken, but I would guess that your logic will attempt to prove this to be wrong.

    Prophecies are self-fullfilling so this actually does not prove anything. If a man believes strongly enough that he is going to die tomorrow he will probably find a way to make it happen

    you are so right, i know for a fact that there is no final answer among men/women it's all about faith in the end.

    thank you for speaking out, my personal beliefs are strong and i don't question them with such things but when someone put the question before me and i answered them it just did not seem to be enough for them so i reached out to the hub community.

    But, you cannot prove that it is not the word of God. God is knowable through the Spirit of righteousness. Everyone can write the actual words of God when they exchange beliefs with God. Moral righteousness brings the individual to the inner spirit.

    Did the father outline the slaughter of thousands of Native Americans simply because they did not want to be Christian? Did he outline the burning of 'heretics' during the Spanish inquisition?

    If you believe that, it's fine for you. For myself, and a lot of others feel the same, such belief is out of the question.

    You don't have to believe, Bobby.... you choose to or not. Simple as that.

    As for the simplistic idea of climbing out of the sea, and "a clump of slime," can you not appreciate scientific process and the ability of humans to find logical answers?

    Then you are saying it isn't the word of a god but the words of men that you believe wouldn't be allowed to be wrong?

    But every version of holly book is filled with contradictions within and between versions all I assume approved by the same god...

    it is true that there are things that man could not have known, such as the earth on it's axis. i'll stop by and read when you're done.

    This is a good answer, we live by faith and the good book was written for those that have/keep the faith. You bring up good points when you say that no man would be able to decipher the codes from God with such prophecies that only God knows.

    Same question back at you my friend. How do you know the Quran is from God? As with all religions Islam is a matter of faith not fact. A man of Islam can no more prove the Quran is from God than a Christian man can prove the Bible is from god.

    King James. no. every other offshoot including Islam that wanted to skew the word of God to thier favor..yes. King James Bible gives us the version that is the closest to the original manuscripts. thats all i need. Bible 200+ yrs older than Kuran

    unen- tsogt, if this vision stated by you is the outcome of your own experience and deep contemplation and not on account of blind adherence of a particular theory, then I respect your way of looking at religion even though I believe in God.
