<quoted text>Where does it say the earth is flat? That is your interpretation. A circle is round.
In Hebrew, "heaven and earth" together constitute the universe. The earth has foundations and pillars (I Sam. ii. 8; Ps. lxxv. 4, civ. 5; Job ix. 6, xxxviii. 6); it rests on the ocean, out of which it rises (Ps. xxiv. 2, cxxxvi. 6); it is suspended in space (Job xxvi. 7); the idea of its free suspension in the air is especially worked out in the mystical "Book of Creation" (Sefer Ye&#7827;irah). Like most peoples of antiquity, the Hebrews conceived of the earth as a disk (Prov. viii. 27; Job xxvi. 10; Isa. xl. 22); and they spoke, therefore, of peoples like the Assyrians, Egyptians, Persians, and Medes as living at the ends of the earth.

<quoted text>God is called he, him, father, son, husband and man. God is also called she, her, mother, daughter, wife, and woman. God is not an hermaphrodite so God must be a woman. Where the scripture differentiates between male or female, it consistently is female. Mankind also includes woman. Son/sun is a pun in English. God wanted the world to believe she was a man, if Israel knew the truth, they would've been weakened by it. That is one of the reasons God kept her name a secret. If we knew the name of God, we would know she is a woman. When asked by Moses, God said her name is I AM.
Ancient Semitics were polytheistic up until about the time of Hezekiah and Josias. Ancient artifacts indicate that the fertility goddess Asherah was the wife and consort of Yahweh. Also the goddes of the Earth, Asherah was symbolized by a tree and frequently associated with temples to Yahweh. Asherah was by far the last of the Canaanite gods to be abandoned.

Considering that the English language didn't exist when the Bible was written, you're all wet.

And for the record, God said "My name is Jealous."

It doesn't matter. The earth is still round. I appreciate your research though.(smile)

It does matter. The Bible is a theological document and no amount of crybaby apologetics will make it historically nor scientifically sound.

God bless you.

Both a circle and a disc are round but neither is a sphere. The earth is a sphere.

1. Were those five-year-olds inspired by God?
Once again, your analogy falls flat.

2. The Bible was written by men who believed the Earth was a flat disc, that women were property,

3. and that God impregnated a human woman who gave birth to him.
If that's the best they could do with your god's inspiration and guidance, then you really should shop around for a better god.
1. Why? Because of the odd question you just asked?

2. There's no proof that the ancient Hebrews believed in a flat earth. They lacked the terminology we have today so words to describe a 'sphere' did not exist. As far as men believing that women were the property of men, this was common among peoples in the near middle east. Do you have proof that, say, specific men of faith like Elijah and Daniel took that view?

By the way, things haven't changed much since then overall as far as a general view of women.

3. This would be a part of the chain leading into historical evidence of the resurrection. The only reason anyone can claim the resurrection did not happen is skepticism. Humans generally resurrect from the dead, particularly after predicting they would. If one can think 'outside' of their skepticism by reviewing the evidence of the resurrection, then they would really need to do the same with the virgin birth.

There are many false accusations concerning the Bible. Some of it may be a result of lack of understanding. Many of it seem to be more exaggerations that are more like "toppings" on a pizza. Something more to add to try and bring more flavor to the "misconceptions". The idea of the Bible teaching that the earth is flat would be one (some state that the Bible literally 'teaches' that the earth is flat).

It's also believed by many that assertions made about ancient peoples in general believing that the earth is flat is false as well.

He said 'early manuscripts', chucklehead, not '22 English Bibles'.

There are many important later additions to the Bible:

The parable of the woman taken in adultery.
"There are three that bear witness in heaven ...."
"God was manifest in the flesh."

and deletions:

'Jesus Barabbas'(Jesus, son of the father) to just 'Barabbas'.

God bless you (not Bible bless you).

Actually he said "The most RELIABLE early manuscripts". If you are going to refer to Scripture please cite them.
