Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

It's no surprise that he knows so little of his own bible. He is a mindless sheep who merely followers orders of his preacher man.

He and Tacitus would have been flogged and ran out of town if they were lucky had they really wrote such things.

Josephus is hesitant to speak about pagan deities, but he'll talk about a Judaic false messiah in terms that would infuriate Jews.

Riiiight.

Apologetics aren't based on reason or logic.

Oh several scholars do including apologetic friendly Bart Ehrman and several others.

<quoted text>> Who says that there are errors in The Bible, other than you deaf, dumb, and blind atheists who want to believe that there are errors in the Bible? The Written Word of God is perfect, error free! The Books of the Bible contain many curious mysteries and quotes. They are in the Bible for a reason ... and, when we believers are filled with the Holy Spirit, and God sees our faithfulness, He will open our blind eyes, and, behold, in heavenly awe ... we will see right before our eyes, all of the answers of not only the mysteries of the Bible, and Heaven and Earth, but, also, the entire universe! Praise be to God!

Nobody here is judging you a self admitted gay man. Enjoy yourself in the men's room.

No doubt he is obviously gay and also being Christian that must cause his mental illness.

Perhaps he should become a Unitarian?

All if these are your biblical fan fiction and nothing more. You are completely unable to provide a shred of proof for any of those apologetic answers and you ignored many of them.

Richardfs wrote, "So let us talk about the 2000+ year old uncorrected errors in the bibull:-"

Yes! By all means! I look forward to this.

Richardfs wrote, "1. Who incited David to count the fighting men of Israel?
God did (2 Samuel 24: 1)
Satan did (I Chronicles 2 1:1)"

Writers of the bible (especially in the OT) didn't always write about secondary events. Therefore, God didn't tempt or incite David. God allowed Satan to tempt David.

Richardfs wrote, "2. In that count how many fighting men were found in Israel?
Eight hundred thousand (2 Samuel 24:9)
One million, one hundred thousand (I Chronicles 21:5)"

1 Chronicles is speaking of the male population that can be called on to fight, while 2 Samuel is speaking of the professional army that is trained and ready to fight.

Richardfs wrote, "3. How many fighting men were found in Judah?
Five hundred thousand (2 Samuel 24:9)
Four hundred and seventy thousand (I Chronicles 21:5)"

The same principle applies to this apparent contradiction as well.

Richardfs wrote, "4. God sent his prophet to threaten David with how many years of famine?
Seven (2 Samuel 24:13)
Three (I Chronicles 21:12)"

There had already been 4 years of famine. God was asking David if he wanted 3 more years of famine or if he wanted to be on the run from his enemies for 3 months, or if he wanted 3 days of pestilence. God was giving David a choice.

Richardfs wrote, "5. How old was Ahaziah when he began to rule over Jerusalem?
Twenty-two (2 Kings 8:26)
Forty-two (2 Chronicles 22:2)"

Ahaziah was the son of Joram. Joram was sick and it's plausible even probable that Ahaziah ruled jointly with his father, and then in the 12th year started to rule by himself.

This is fun! Shall I keep going?:)

Advice before listing apparent contradictions:

Verses in one book of the bible cannot be compared with verses in another book for the purpose of finding contradictions. That is known as "proof-texting" and isn't intelligent nor honest.

Each verse should be considered within the larger passages in which they are found, and with knowledge of Hebrew customs, history, traditions, and the genre of each book. This will keep you from making foolish arguments.

I know I didn't answer them all, but if you seriously want answers (as opposed to mockery and derision) then I'll be glad to help.

P.S. At the end of the day, science can't prove science.:D

Those who are looking for contradictions may therefore say,“See—the Bible is full of mistakes!” and choose to reject it entirely as being untrustworthy. However, those who trust God have no problem believing
The godly base their confidence on two truths: 1)“all Scripture is given by inspiration of God”(2 Timothy 3:16); and 2) an elementary rule of Scripture is that God has deliberately included seeming contradictions in His Word to “snare” the proud. He has “hidden” things from the “wise and prudent” and “revealed them to babes”(Luke 10:21), purposely choosing foolish things to confound the wise (1 Corinthians 1:27).
One of your better arguments Clown. Basically said, God allows mockers to continue in their foolishness, and even helps them along in their intellectual misadventures. Reminds me of a joke I heard once.

"An sophisticated long-haired city slicker decided to take his new BMW for a ride in the country one day. He pulled into a country store to ask for directions. He regarded the old merchant with a hint of smug contempt and asked for directions to a store that had a wider selection of goods. The man behind the counter was happy to oblige.

He said, "Why sure. Leave here and drive 14 miles to the next river crossing. Turn right and cross the bridge. Follow the road up over the mountain and you'll come to a fork in the road. Take the right fork, and you'll drive another 22 miles through some farm land. At the next four corners, you'll see a sign pointing you to the Humble Inn and Country Store. They will have everything you could hope for."

The young city slicker smiled smugly and departed. He drove the 14 miles to the river crossing. He drove up over the mountain and came to the fork. He followed the right fork and drove another 22 miles through rolling farm lands. He came to the four corners and followed the sign to the Humble Inn and Country Store. As he pulled up in front of the store and noticed the man who had given him directions locking up for the day.

He got out of his car quickly and said "Hey, why did you send me on a wild goose chase for?" The older merchant looked at the younger man and said, "You didn't think what I had was good enough the first time you were here, and so I thought maybe you needed a second chance to change your opinion of what we have here at the good ol' Humble Inn."
