1. They have there own definition for words.
2. They don't need proof.
3. They validate their own evidence.
4. and above all they can call some thing a hypothesis or theory based on the 3 points above.
Oh and they date rocks by the fossils found in them and they date fossil by the rocks their in.

guess that pretty much disproves the whole concept of divine inspiration...again....
Again your mistake is not remembering man wrote the bible. Now yes many say inspired by God but not once have 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?

Now define critters. What is critters when it comes to a science debate? I want a working definition of critters.

yes, in fact i have. if the bible is supposedly the word of some god, it had to be divinely inspired. it was not, clearly.

the bible is the word of man and the god created within its pages is a creation of the men who wrote the bible and their societies.

proven fact.

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.

I know you are an example of ignorance of science and the Bible. General ignorance is also indicated.

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.

Fact is you believe it is directly inspired word of some God? That is why you try to refute it all the time.

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...
