    Can discredit the bible but, it can't repair ignorance.

      I think education is what can repair ignorance. It seems that a lot of believers don't even hold everything in the bible as literal.

        It says that God is unchanging, yet the old testament doesn't count.

        They say they hold the ten commandments true, but then they say the old testament doesn't count.

        Do You see the contradictory nature of the believer?

        They pick and choose, trying to validate their own version of what is true and what is not.

        But, you can't invalidate your own argument, if you're trying to prove it's validity.

        It's crazy, all around.

          Yes which is why for myself I can't be a believer. I can't convince myself of something my mind doesn't find honest.

          I like to know how others reconcile the contradictions but mostly it appears to be denile and it's God's mystery. Or Satan.

    If you reverse the words "bible" and "science" the statement is just as true.

    The ignorance is perpetuated by the congregation, but also the believer.

    If I reject everything I see as untrue, then I am being ignorant.

    But, in the case of rejecting the bible, I'm being quite reasonably sane.

    Rejecting that which appears to be untrue is intelligence.  Believing what appears to be untrue is perversity, and believing nothing is ignorance.

      Ignoring what others have to say, is being ignorant to that person.

      The word ignorant can be applied to just about any situation, doctrine, thought, presuposition or to whatever you want to apply it.

        Does that not make your own use of it in starting this thread rather pointless?

            I get that you take a rather Humpty Dumpty approach to language.
