I see you do not understand a damn thing I am saying. I can see you do not know that the expression "grain of truth" means. I tried to explain it in detail, but you are just unable to grasp some concepts.<quoted text>
Lu, your point is what I was trying to show Mike his inconsistency in his belief/nonbelief of the Bible. Either you believe or you don't. If he doesn't, then I find it mighty hypocritical to use a book that you don't believe to bolster a point you want someone else to believe. It's kind of like being pregnant, either you're pregnant or you're not. I've never heard of a someone being just a little bit pregnant. Also, he should state he doesn't believe the Bible instead of finding a grain of truth. I stated this the other day as well, a half truth is a lie. He should be man enough to say I don't believe a word of the Bible or I believe it and just don't understand it. Mike's argument doesn't have merit IMO because you can't have it both ways and make a cogent point using a book that you say lies to bolster your argument that you say is the truth. That dog don't bark.
Do you think the Koran has any truth? I believe the claim a man named Mohamed existed, I just doubt many of the things the Koran claimed about him. Some might be true, but who can know which ones? It does not mean the Koran is all true.
I believe a man named Jesus existed. I not believe he healed any blind persons. You see, one can believe one claim in the bible, but not believe all the claims of the bible.
This is not a complicated concept.
