A simple Google search is all you need.
www.skepticsannotatedbible.com addresses many of the inconsistencies and such.
A search for Bible Archaeology yields results both in support of and against the Bible.
Evidence of the flood, Noah's ark and Jesus, searched on GOogle result in the same two sided results..
www.christiananswers.net/archaeology
fuzzyquark.comxa.com/archaeology.html
www.rationalchristianity.net/historical_evid....
www.bibleevidences.com/archeology.htm

when taken at face value, the archaeological evidence of humans inhabiting the earth millions of years ago, along with the lack of a global flood speaks against the archaeological significance of the Bible.

That the flood story is simply implausible as fact sort of goes without saying. How did Noah get species from North America on his boat? etc.

Also, is it mere coincidence that most of the websites in favor of archaeological evidence supporting the Bible are sponsored by Churches, While the scientific community websites seem to dismiss the claims of evidence?

If I thought I was getting an inquisitive honest remark on Topix I might have been more willing to attempt posting an intelligent reply.

There is an astronomical number of planets in the universe. We are only now beginning to be able to "see" planets around other stars because of the vast distances that exist between us and them. How many there actually are is anyone's guess.

What we know about galaxies is that the ones we observe contain 200-400 billion stars each. Our solar system contains 8 planets. If we assume each star has 1 planet, and not more, and we average a galaxy to 300 billion stars we can deduce:

The Hubble Deep Field image contains 10,000 galaxies. At 2.5 arcminutes, that's roughly 1/2,000,000 of the visible universe in any direction. So if we multiply 3,000,000,000 x 10,000 x 2,000,000 we get 6 sextillion or 6,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 planets in the visible universe. It is likely much more than that.

In conclusion to this you expect me to believe that we are the only life in the universe? I would say the probability of that is a flat 0. Now I'm not saying that the message of Jesus is not a great guide line to live by, but facts are the facts, there are holes in the bibles stories Case closed.

I am so sorry for anyone who does not believe the Bible. Not believing that Jesus died
Ifor their sins. That means that when they die they will not go to Heaven, but they
Will go to Hell.. Yes that is in the Bible.. Someday you will remember what you read.
The fact the Bible foretold things that are happening right now in our world thousand
Of years ago should help you believe. Jesus is coming back again, that is in the Bible.
Men have tried to get rid of the Bible, but it is the word of Almighty God.
The Blood that Jesus shed on the Old Rugged Cross it will never lose its power.
It is the only way to be saved. How could anyone deny God.
Someday in your life you are going to need him.

I am sorry for anyone who do not believe in the Sagas of the Cimmerians. Not believing that Crom is all powerfull, and not knowing the secret of steel, means that Crom will laugh at them when they die, and cast them out of Valhalla!
Yes that is written in the Chronicles and Sagas of the Cimmerians. Told over a thousand fires, and has been written in blood runes.It has been foretold a thousand years before the Hyborian Age, that Crom will return to fight the Giants, and rule the wold again!
The ONLY way to be with Crom, to feast in his halls, to drink his mead, and to share his Valkyrie,and to fight by his side, is to die in battle, covered with the blood of your enemies. There at his feet, high on his mountain, you will be asked the secret of steel!
What is the best in life? To crush your enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamentations of the women!

Because West Frankfort has become a Sodom and Gomorrah full of harlots and the Whore of Babylon, the Plague of the Nile Virus, the same that had stuck the evil Pharaohs of Egypt, has been cast by the hands of God. Repent now ye sinners of Little Egypt, full of Sodomites and hypocrites.
There, that better?

The entire bible is manmade. A myth. A book full of contradicting stories. Any religious doctrine based on the bible is also man made, made-up, fiction. God, Jesus, and the devil are all fictional man made characters. Anyone who beieves the bible is absolute god inspired truth is being conned, deceived, tricked, and taken advantage of.
the 'devil' afterall, is the church's best friend. It is what has kept it in business all these years!!

I am not an Atheiest but I am not a Christian. I was raised in a Baptist church...and THAT is the reason that I am no longer a Christian. I have a deep love of God, but the people who represent him are not only wanting...they are awful. They are morally bankrupt and while it is a nationwide epidemic. I grew up in West Frankfort and attended many of the churches there. While there is a small, and I wish to emphasize the word SMALL; in fact miniscule may be better portion of people who are kind, sincere, and better for their religion far more you find people who go to church as a social club and a status symbol. Middle class churchgoers think themselves upper class and might as well be members of a country club-nevermind they are painfully middle class and not anywhere near the tax bracket that they should be in for subscribing to their Republican ideals (they're always Republicans) however, that is another story.

I find the education of many church ministers-especially in West Frankfort to be wanting. I am excluding the Catholic church because priests actually do have a standard to follow. It would seem the standard for a good Baptist preacher in Southern Illinois is one who can shout and exude theatrics while babbling nonsensically and spouting hatred at every turn.

The last thing I want to mention, and it is probably the MOST deplorable of all is the arrogance. The arrogance that these people have in thinking that THEIR way is the only way and all others will burn in hell. Really? Well you must believe in reincarnation and have died before and possess some knowledge that I do not..because I have never died; and I do not know what the afterlife is like, but you do. Truly, the bible is real? 100%? It's not allegorical or metaphorical? But it's real true hard fact. Alright, but know this...90% of Christians don't live up to the biblical standard...and if you accept salvation only from fear of Hell (as son many do) then by God's standard you are unsaved and if you are right you will find yourself in Hell after you die. Have fun with that. I will continue to practice my own faith which has forsaken the idea of Hell because...it is ridiculous.

Good Day.

is that why most of the management and administration at nursing home in Herrin with Christian in the name only pretend to be good Christians instead of actually being good Christians? Lots of fake and non-Christian acting people there. Poor residents and families. I guess I'd be angry too if I lived a lie every day. It has to be exhausting!!!

The Bible is the only book or source I need to study to realize that the Bible and every other religion is a fairy tale. Walking on water? Talking animals? 2 of every animal on a boat smaller than the Titanic? Virgin birth? Magic? Dude in the sky that sees all, hears all and creates people from dirt? Please. I'm an adult.
