Yes, I CAN "have it both ways." The Bible CAN contain some truth, along with SOME error -- like all books written by man.<quoted text>
You always have to be a little arrogant, don't you? Of course, we all know the Bible was written by man inspired by God. All the Bible is true or none of it is true! You can't have it both ways. It is not full of errors and contradictions. It is because you don't want to understand it that makes you think that. Yeah, the Rapture is nigh upon us. I just have one question for you. Since you are an atheist and I suppose you believe when you die.... you're just dead, then why are you spending your time on here. Shouldn't you be living it up, spend all your money, just do whatever you want all the time..... unless you just enjoy fussing with people all the time....
Just because a part of the Bible is true, that does not prove that ALL of it is true. And, just because parts of the Bible are false, that does not prove that ALL parts are false.
What does my being mortal and dying have to do with my being on Topix? I am on here because I choose to do so. How DARE you tell me what I must do with my time! I am sure that you have enough trouble living your own life, without poking your nose in the lives of others.
(I must confess to enjoying "spinning you up" though, "Norton." That is one of my pleasures in life. Just consider that one of my forms of "living it up." Since you are not an atheist, you cannot have any idea what we believe, or enjoy doing. You are only able to sit there, imagining all the pleasures of our lives, and being envious.)
