I’ve been a bit busy, which is why I’ve only had the time to post comments
on the Web site, but I shall continue as frequently as I possibly can. When
I have more time, I’ll re-read Tacitus’ writings, as I’m sure that I’ll be
able to prove Mike [Clements] is rather incorrect about which side of this
they support.

Considering the fact that my last topic resulted in threatened Christians
jumping on an anti-fact bandwagon, I’ll be presenting, in my next few
letters, facts they can’t get around with such hollow responses as “oral
tradition.”

The bible is full of intolerance, cruelty, hatred, absurdities,
impossibilities, injustice, and -- most entertaining and what happens to be
the most damning piece of evidence against the reliability or divine
influence of the book -- the constant contradictions at almost every turn.

I’ll start with the creation story. I don’t even need evolution or
abiogenesis to disprove this; it does a good job of disproving itself with
all of its contradictions. I’m using the King James Version of the bible for
this section of my debate.

The first one directly regards the creation of animal life, including the
creation of humans. It’s a rather immediate contradiction. Genesis 1:20-30
is blatantly contradicted by Genesis 2:7-23.

There are other verses here that are in contradiction of other verses
throughout the bible. For example, Genesis 1:26, “And God said, Let us make
man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the
fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over
all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
This verse denotes not a monotheistic god, but the existence of multiple
gods, something that appears multiple times throughout the canon. The verses
contained within the bible that claim that only one god exists are far
outweighed by the verses to the contrary, 37 to 13.

Back to the contradictions in the Genesis story, moving into post-creation:
Genesis 2:17 states, “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,
thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt
surely die.” That’s pretty clear. Yet, in Genesis 3:6-17, not only does he
not die within the same day that he ate the forbidden fruit, he was cursed
with

hard labor for the rest of his life.

Major contradictions within the first three chapters of the bible, and yet
Christians take it as fact, and expect everyone else to, as well. This is
just scratching the surface.

I challenge Mike to adequately explain these contradictions, without vague
conjecture or a verse that might explain one part, yet not the rest of the
contradictions in question. If anyone else wishes to respond to this and has
the capability, I’d appreciate a response.

I gave proof. The order of events in chapter two is the opposite of the order of the creation story in Gen. 1:1-2:6.

First of all, the Scripture in Gen. 2 to which you refer is simply an elaboration of day 6 of Creation. Chapter 1 is similar to the introduction or preface of a book. It ... Read More Read More
