King Solomon, the accepted writer of Provebs, had 700 wives and 300 concibines.....When did he find time to do any writing? I wonder how the current laws would treat him today?
Sorry for this, but maybe he was a minuteman.

Arnold, you left out the fact he lived to be only 60 years old and God said he was the wisest man (human) after Him. I figure if he could juggle all those women, not only write, but edit the scriptures he's given credit for; today's law would have been a breeze for him.:) The man accomplished a lot in 60 years which is a short lifespan even by today's standards, you think today's laws would have tripped him up?

When God asked Solomon at the beginning of his reign to name a gift, he asked for "wisdom and knowledge" to rule the Israelite people well(2 Ch 1:10). God granted this. Most of Solomon's proverbs were written during his early years as king, before he was led astray by "many foreign women" to include seven hundred wives, princesses, and 300 concubines from many kingdoms, which Solomon had treaties (1 Kg 11:1,3). The Bible clearly notes that Solomon had faults as well as elements of greatness. The bottom line is God kept His Word to Solomon by granting him his wisdom and knowledge.

Having 700 wives is not my idea of a wise man. Having 700 books...well, that's more like it.

Thought you might want to check this site, a pastor said I should check it because I asked him about Biblical writings "other" than the Bible. It's quite interesting how there is a correlation between the "written word" and "ancient hieroglyphics".
I read quite a bit of it, and could find no scriptures cited that actually lined up with anything they claimed. The few scriptures they posted, showed no correlation. Not sure what you see in this site, but I see a lot of babbling about nothing specific, and a lot of trying to make the bible sound as if it has some evidence.
The article starts out that it silenced the critics. Give me a break. Pure propaganda.

So the bible calls atheist fools? No shit? Guess that proves it is true. I cannot refute it, because the bible claims it.

Let me test this scripture. Do you think all atheists have never once done good? If not, then the scripture is proven false. Thus, the bible is suspect.
BTW, Bill Gates is atheist, and he gave about twenty billion to charity.
So does this verse fit Gates? There is none who does good. Psalm 14:1

Now lets look at the other scripture you posted.
The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,
But he who heeds counsel is wise. Proverbs 12:15

So do you think you are right about god? If so, then you are claiming to be 'right in your own eyes'.

Oh, and just who do you think never seeks counsel?

Do you even think for a second about how stupid these verses are? Do you ever scrutinize the logic?

Kings being granted wisdom by god? I can see Karl Rove's wheels spinning now. It's just politics man, why can't you see that?

Mike that's because your mind is closed to all facts that don't fit in with your worldview.Your mind is so inflexible it lowers your IQ by thirty points.

Mere "correlation", words and pictures go together. Kinda like first grade learning of, seeing a picture, and then learning to write what it is and so on. I believe, to simplify, pictures came before the written word, or maybe the Dead Sea Scrolls. "Silencing MANY OF THE" Biblical critics. We like to keep the words correct on here.

I believe people believe in things with blind faith, so it clearly exists. Is blind faith good? Not in my opinion? Do you think it is good? If so, why? I see no one wants to answer any of my questions, but I answer all your questions.

Have the bible's critics been silenced? Nope.
The article showed no real correlation. There is zero evidence of the story of the exodus. None. I am not saying none of it might be true, but you cannot show it is true. These stories must be taken on word value alone. It has no more evidence than Atlantis.

I see you cannot answer any of my questions. So who is lacking here? Why do you run? What are you scared of?
