      This is all a LIE!  You have no way of verifying any of this nonsense.  Why should I base anything on this distorted, absurd, childish view of reality?  Please validate your claims, but don't use scripture.  Could you do that?  If not, then you are wasting our time.

          I thought mjane had some proof of this claim.  I'm looking for proof.  Is it inappropriate to be inquisitive?  I'd like to see these extraordinary claims backed up with real evidence.  Don't put the onus on me, just because I happened to enter this forum to learn something.

              I see nothing wrong with my statement.  I simply disagreed with the opening statement, but asked for validation.  I'm just being logical.  I see some people have a problem when it comes to reasonable questions.  All mjane needs to do is validate the claims.  And, of course, the bible can't be used, because of obvious reasons.

              I guess you would prefer that I abdicate my mind, and accept anything as reality.  Imagine that!

                Silly me...it hadn't occurred to me that you could inquire without words like nonsense, distorted, absurd, childish smile
                Inquiring might have been worded something like this:
                "I do not understand how you arrived at that conclusion. Why should I accept your point of view? I doubt you can supply evidence I would accept, so I don't know why I am even bothering you."
                  See the difference? Doubt you'll admit it.

                  Ok. So maybe I should work on tact. But, still, would I have gotten a logical answer, or the same old nonsensical responses based solely on faith? 

                  Understand, h.a.borcich, I respect no premise that is not based in reality.  And it is hard to respect a person when they are spewing this nonsense, because, to be honest, it looks quite ridiculous for a grownup to have such a view of reality. 

                  I'm questioning the reason for his faith, and he has nothing but faith, that's all he has.  That's not enough in the real world.

                    Thank you for recognizing the wording could have been more tactful. And I agree it would not have changed the answer, which leads me to my next question.
                    This thread is in "bible inspiration" obviously a post intended to other christians for discussion. If this was a thread on "what is the reason you do not have faith" - I could see you asking the OP to answer the why of their faith. It looks like anything christian is sought out by anything atheist to cause conflict. Why is that?

      I thought the topic, "Bible Inspiration", was intriguing. However, as soon as I read your opening comment, or tried to read it, I stopped after the first two words.

      If you want people to pay attention to you, start with using upper and lower case and no caps.

      Whatever your message was, I had no patience to read through it while being shouted at. Why should I respect you by reading your words when you have no respect for me, as shown by your all-caps delivery?

      Hi friends

      Bible was not written with inspiration; it has been written by persons who deserted Jesus; so there is no inspiration invloved; only their vested interest.

          Jesus did receive inspiration as well as revelation from the Creator-God Allah YHWH; but that has been lost by the Christians as they did not follow Jesus; they follow Paul and the Church with made up gospels.

    No offense, but it was difficult interpreting your words.  Spellcheck is a good suggestion and also not posting in all caps.  The Holy Spirit whispers to the heart and mind - not yells.  Also, let's reign in the use of the word "saved" and "unsaved."  These terms are dangerous and anyone professing absolute knowledge of who is and is not "saved" is assuredly subject to blind judgment and the magnification of pride.  Teach and proclaim good clean living and not damnation of the soul.  The "fire and brimstone" affect places one on a false plateau above another and gives a condescending tone.  Anything that fosters harsh feelings or hatred is not of God and should be avoided.

    Just a few suggestions. smile

    What about where God warns the Israelites about thinking they're better than others because they have the true word of God - but their scribes have handled it falsely?

    God DID inspire men to give messages but I think the same thing happened then as happens now. A man gives the message, it's found to be truly from God so then everyone believes (and sometimes the man himself) that EVERYTHING the guy says from then on is from God. That leads to serious problems.

      I hear you. Man has a propensity and the capacity to corrupt absolutely. I never understood how so many followed blindly the tv preachers back in the 80's. To me there was a problem when their lives and words fail to add up to what they said the rest of us should be doing. Personally, I rely on my relationship with Jesus to help me navigate - mankind is too selfserving. JMHO

    It is time for christians and all bible bashers to do a bit of reading in ancient history.

    Christianity is recycled rubbish.  It is a Jewish reworking of ancient Pagan myths of the dying and resurrecting Godman Osiris-Dionysus that was spread across ancient Mediterranean.
    Paganism by another name. The gospel story of Jesus is not the biography of an historical Messiah, it is the retelling of an ancient myth.
    Anyone care to challenge that or do we get the usual denial without reading history?

              I have been posting here a long time, and still do not see why religionists can tell others they are going to hell in a basket, and don't see the abuse in that. smile

              Genuine questions are seldom addressed, they are replied to with pointless bible quotes that are seldom even related, scientific questions ignored, historic truth with accompanying evidence is ignored, not even enough decency to keep it honest or make an effort to answer issues which are ignored simply because they are not religious.
              Very poor form from religionists in my view.

                Earnest,
                  You enter every christianity and christian living thread and pee on it as you laugh and ridicule christians. When asked why you do it you claim you have every right to post on any thread. It is a right you obviously think is reserved for a select few as you can also claim a christian is out of line for posting in defense of what they believe. You are a walking, talking, spouting bull dust double standard!
                  Not once have I told you or anyone else on these forums you are going to hell much less in a handbasket - but you claim it is true. I have stated I believe in heaven and hell. Big difference there. Based on that alone I am confident any truth is not recognizable to you.
                Your demands I and others accept a challenge for proof (and only the kind of proof you accept) are just demands for a playground fight. You are too ignorant to hear any christian telling you they don't have to fight you to win the right to be on the playground! The ignorance you display is far more telling of you than anything. You dish out the harassment like an angry 5 year old, then expect christians to accomodate your tirades!
                  There is no reasoning with you. After you pee on some ones belief, you laugh, run to the next thread and pee some more. When you get called on it, you play the playground fight scenario. When it doesn't happen as you hope - you then act like you have won. It is your fear that makes you behave this way and it prevents any serious discussion. You do not want a civil discussion otherwise you would promote civil discussion. No - you cannot be reasoned with.
                  Get over yourself, act civil. Maybe if you post about what about atheism you believe in rather than trouncing on what others believe that you don't you will be viewed differently. If you have to step on other people (christians) to elevate yourself Earnest, you should find some therapy. It is similar to the mindset of domestic violence abuser. I am serious as a heart attack.
                Good luck on your path to whatever, I have no desire to put up with your garbage anymore. Not only have you wore out my patience, but you have painted a very clear picture as to why your particular behavior as an atheist cannot be tolerated. You are not happy to be free to choose what you want to believe - you must inflict distress and ridicule on anyone who believes different than you. Thug behavior is not tolerance.
                  You will make wild accusations and claim I am afraid, yaddah,yaddah, yaddah. Maybe you'll even post scripture smile Whatever. I doubt you'll ever move past the prejudiced mindset you currently posess. To each their own. That is all I have to say. Holly

                Well here are a few facts about this particular history. These stories pre-date the biblical ones by thousands of years and tell the same story, just different characters. They are nonsense of course, but the same nonsense, which would more than indicate where this crud got started and why.
                As far as history is concerned, as I understand history it is mostly written by whoever won the war at the time. smile I did not say it was accurate in it's claims, in fact it is quite crazy when it comes to religious history, but it is there in black and white, dated and written when it said it was (roughly.)

                    The biblical stories are old stories recycled is what I am showing here.

                    It would seem logical that this was the case, based on a long time line of gods, with these stories changing to suit whoever was telling them as they went through history.

                    There are lots of floods, virgin births, threats made by entities that match the OT, historic events that reappear in the bible thousands of years later.

    Hi friends

    Bible NT has little of Word revealed; and ispiration only those people get who receive Word of revelation from the Creator- God Allah YHWH. Bible failed to mention Word of Revelation Jesus received from God Allah YHWH; and it also failed to mention his inspirations.

    Thanks

    Hi, I was reading the comments. Please don't argue about God. Its not our job to prove that God exists. Its the job of Holy Spirit. Please understand, not everybody is going to be with God at the end of the day. So, our job is just convey the gospel. Then leave it to God. I am from a science (Physics) back ground, my wife also the same, but we have never seen any book like Bible. If somebody says something against God, its not our problem, God has to deal with that. And he will do that. We can invite somebody to church. But holy spirit brings him to church. One guy here is speaking from a movie Zeitgeist which is utter nonsense. If somebody wants to believe that let it be. Leave it God. May the God Almighty bless you all.

    Bible is neither a Word revealed nor a word inspired.
