Science has an interpretation of reality, and they are just that - interpretations.<quoted text>
Everyone has an interpretation of the Bible, and they are just that - interpretations.
The Bible, and all text of a "spiritual" nature are irrelevant to the discussion.No one knows what the original authors actually wanted to portray in their writings. Not you, not us, we all take from reading the Bible what we want to understand. "Prove it's fact, Prove it's not" - that will get us nowhere. It's an overall consensus that the Bible was translated poorly thus leading to the possibility that it's interpretations are not actually sound or factual. Could it be a possibility - and I ask this with an open mind, that what we read today is not actually what the original authors wanted to portray when they penned the original version? Could it be that the original authors only meant the Bible to be a book of fables that, over time were taken too literally by latter interpreters and...
The Bible may have been translated poorly, but its subject may be considered independently of the Bible.
The only reference necessary to be made to the Bible is to identify the assumed properties if the subject in question.
Yet, the stories in the Bible whether fables or not will allow us to do one thing: they will allow us to compare the behavior of the subject with the responses of the elements the subject influences at least contextually.
While the behavior of the subject is contrary to the behavior of the elements it influences, we will be able to know whether or not there is truth or falsehood in the accounts regarding the subject.
What ever the mind conceives of is a fabrication; whether it is scientific or religious.I don't want to say fabricated, because they may have sincerely believed the writings to be fact, rather misunderstood? I ask you this assuming that you are an intellectual; some of the posts you have made make sense. Please, in all honesty of what you believe and in your true opinion,, could this be a possibility?
The real question is; how accurately does the fabrication express the reality which induced/caused it?
