<quoted text>
I ever seen that God narrated to them what to write or told them to set down and take notes and when we are done, take all your notes, put them in a book and call it the Bible. Have you? Since you say you have share it with us.
Now divinely inspired has many definitions but not one of them say it is word for word, was narrated or taken from notes;
1.
a. Having the nature of or being a deity.
b. Of, relating to, emanating from, or being the expression of a deity: sought divine guidance through meditation.
c. Being in the service or worship of a deity; sacred.
2. Superhuman; godlike.
3.
a. Supremely good or beautiful; magnificent: a divine performance of the concerto.
b. Extremely pleasant; delightful: had a divine time at the ball.
4. Heavenly; perfect.
n.
1. A cleric.
2. A theologian.
v.tr.
1. To foretell through or as if through the art of divination. See Synonyms at foretell.
2.
a. To know by inspiration, intuition, or reflection.
b. To guess.
v.intr.
1. To practice divination.
2. To guess.
so the bible is maybe, in some sort of way, partially the word of some god we wouldn't even know, since it is the bible that explains the nature of this bible to humans...

don't you see any logical problems with this cult set-up? any rational person would.

Again you are avoiding the point. God did not write the bible, did not narrate the words and did not have man take notes to write it from later. The bible is written by man from passed on words of other men and their experiences. Now I may be wrong but wasn't Moses the only one that directly talked to God and the only one to see the burning bush while he talked to him?

good point. lets talk about the "And God said unto Moses" part of the bible...

your supposed god told Moses directly that owning slaves is an OK thing to do. you support a god that says slavery is OK? does this really seem like the words of a creator of all mankind that would enslave some of his creations?

logic is fun, when used dissecting the bible!...

again, you are clearly stating that the bible is the work of man, and the god you think you know is created by those men...

cults are a riot, aren't they?(maybe not for those inducted into them, like you, but for us rational people they are an endless source of amusement...

Just a simple question; now science says the universe came from nothing except the big bang theory, the expansion of the universe. Before then nothing was there, not even time. So if nothing was there where did the all the elements come from that formed earth and the other planets. Where did the elements come from that formed our sun and other stars? Where did water come from? O2? CO2? etc etc.?
I could go on but I think the question is clear.

no. i have proven to you time and time again that the bible is very clearly and entirely the word of humans that made up another, one of thousands of, religious cults.

why can you not refute the facts i have clearly, and repeatedly given you?

Where does it say in the bible that God told Moses slavery was ok?

And no I am not saying God is created by those men, you are saying that.

That would be some sort of fallacy. Using another's so said faults to justify your own. Now I don't keep up with the fallacy BS for I think it is a childish way to avoid something. But I am sure SubZone can tell you which fallacy it is.

in Leviticus. sad how poorly you cult members know your own cult teachings...but then cults hate knowledge amongst their flock...(first lesson from the garden of eden, remember? do not seek knowledge and all will be perfect...)

try researching, then posting, you will look like so much less of a fool.

no, you clearly stated that the bible is the work of man, no divine inspiration...at best, you stated it was maybe, partially some kind of word of some god you wouldn't know, because the god described therein is created by these wandering, free thinking minds of humans...

logic is fun!

I doubt that Moses was real. Many scholars believe the Pentateuch was written/edited by at least 3 or 4 different people and at a much later time then the reputed lifetime of Moses.

Also there is the FACT that there is no physical archaeological evidence for the reputed Exodus from Egypt....NONE.
