Funny, since they appear to be little more than variations on the theme of Romans - "Anyone who disagrees with our religion is PROOF of our religion!"
If one would "examine" scripture instead of just running through it, they would see things much more clearly.Eph 3:3-4, plaily states if one were to read it they can understand it, and also confirms its validity

Yes, but for that to be true all scripture would have to be true, do you believe that?

Another of my favorite cart/treadmill videos.



You can see the cart from start up of the treadmill. By the way, due to internal losses these carts need a minimum wind velocity before they can go faster than the wind. If the treadmill is going to slow it will not produce enough thrust and it will fall off of the back.

Since you see this one at start up the wind speed, which is also the treadmill speed starts very slow and the cart goes backwards at first. It does not pull forward until the "wind speed" is high enough.

Yes, all part and parcel of the "Bible iz troo cuz teh Bible sez so!" policy, as laid down in the Bible. A trick which pretty much every religion (save perhaps Buddhism) has used to keep its followers in line. Baseless simplistic propaganda at its most primitive, and 21st century fundies today are STILL that gullible.

So if we found a clear error in the Bible, say a prophesy that clearly failed what would that mean?

That's the problem. All evidence points to the Bible being written by people. Not God. So all you got really is just one really big IF.
