    Professed Christianity's fallacies in no way invalidate the Holy Writings [Bible], why?

    Professed Christianity has adopted Neo-platonism and many other pagan
    ideas, example, Trinity, Immortality of the Soul, and Eternal Torment. Islam shares the two latter fallacies with false Christendom.
    Although there are some errors in biblical translations, these can be readlly discerned seeing that there are over 11, 000 manuscripts with ancient Hebrew,  koine Greek and Aramaic. The KJV along with a few other translations which utilized the Textus Receptus, in their translations have three NOTED errors. these are 1 John 5:7 [comma Johanneum], Revelation 1:11 and 1 Timothy 3:16.

    Anything that contradicts itself is rendered totally worthless logically and practically speaking.  The Bible is a book that is full of contradiction.  It is a book that was written in a time when science did not exist, when human knowledge was in its infancy, and where everything was literally a mystery.  The Bible tries to answer those mysteries of the past, but since it was written with the knowledge that existed then, its contents are well . . . aimed for the times in which it was written, hence the reason for so much contradiction and naivete i.e. the story of Adam and Eve, Noah's ark, etc.

    I personally, would take religious books like the Bible and Qur'an purely as mere curiosities and as a means to understand many of the problems that we have today due to our insistence on wanting to base our opinions and morality on books that are at best . . . outdated.

    This is not a question. The so called questioner already thinks he knows all the answers.

    "True truthseeker!" Nothing could be further from the truth!

    It's said (by the revolting Paul the apostle) that pride is the Christian's greatest sin, but here we see that nothing is so arrogant or proud as a Christian in full sail . .

    Observe what Peter says of Paul.

    2 Peter 3: 14 - 17 reads:
    Hence, beloved ones, since you are awaiting these things, do your utmost to be found finally by him spotless and unblemished and in peace. Furthermore, consider the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul according to the wisdom given him also wrote you speaking about these as he does also in all [his] letters. In them, however, are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unsteady are twisting, as [they do] also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. You, therefore, beloved ones, having this advance knowledge, be on your guard that you may not be led away with them by the error of the law-defying people and fall from your own steadfastness.

    you mentioned:Trinity, Immortality of the Soul, and Eternal Torment

    I am not persuaded about trinity at all, Immortality of the soul is not given to everyone, it has to be given by god. Eternal torment is debatable if souls had immortality. Anything not immortal cannot have eternal anything, the two kinda go hand in hand.
    What you have mentioned are catholic doctrines, something i abhor completely.
    I dislike the slamming of the kjv because i use it exclusively and i believe it to be powerful, moreso than the NIV or any other translation. I enjoy the textus recepticus and with the masoretic texts i believe we have well qualified books to learn from. I do not endorse the apocrypha or the psuedopigrapha books at all.

    So i don't know what else to say, except, keep seeking the truth, but don't seek it on your own, make sure God is invited into the quest with you.

    You are merely spewing out your own views, expecting Christians to attack or defend you. You have no legitimate question and your points are yours, you do not substantiate them with any proof.
