Pew warmers, eh.. You alan POE, are a pew jumper, who speaks/writes in an unknown tongue.... Amen!!
Attack me all you want. It PROVES that you can not find solutions to the Bibles endless supply of errors and contradictions.

For example, if I claimed that the Bible said "there is no God" instead of attacking me the messenger you would correctly state that that was taken out of context and you would put it back into context to prove your case simply by quoting the entire verse:

Psalm 14:1, The fool says in his heart, "There is no God."

And you would prove me wrong. But you can't prove me wrong so instead you attack me because you do not like the Bible verses I post together which prove the Bible is unreliable and can not be trusted.

Why here is more proof: Many verses show God either does not know something or is seeking to obtain information. That is the clear import of Psalm 14:2 ("The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God"). Why would he look down to see if he already knew? Ezek. 20:3 says, "Thus saith the Lord God; Are ye come to inquire of me? As I live, saith the Lord God, I will not be inquired of by you." Again we see God seeking information. In Num. 22:9 ("And God came unto Balaam, and said, What men are these with thee?") we again find God seeking information. In Hosea 8:4 ("They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not... ") and Gen. 18:21 ("I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know") God directly states he lacks some information and, unless he is lying, the conclusion is clear. When he says He does not know something, that should settle the matter and would have done so long ago had anyone else been involved. But because his followers can not conceive of him being deficient in any respect, they don't believe him. I, on the other hand, take him at his word. It's only reasonable that if he said it, he meant it. Biblicists are actually saying to God: You don't really mean that God, now do you Oh, yes he does. Don't they believe Scripture! They sure do when it fits their needs and complies with their predilections. One could also consult Gen. 3:9, Gen. 4:5-6, 4:9, 2 Chron. 32:31, and Amos 9:3 for additional confirmation of God's lack of omniscience. As is so often true, once biblicists have a concept embedded in their psyche, God himself can't change their minds.

Of course it's self correcting. Science is a field to understand everything around us. And everything around us, always stays the same. It is only our perception that differs and since we always have a standard, that perception can be challenged.

The Bible is a hogdepodge of philosophy, history and science of widely varying accuracy. History is often a set of lies agreed upon. Philosophy is inexact and widely varying from culture to culture, and back then the fields of science, magic and myth were all fused together.

So the Bible is doomed to fail, like all other philosophies be they religious or otherwise.

How could Jesus, whom the New Testament repeatedly refers to as the
son of man, be our savior when this is clearly forestalled by Psalm
146:3 ("Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man in whom there is no help") and Job 25:6 ("How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm")?

<quoted text>Does that Psalm trouble you Rev? If you had half the knowledge that you claim to have you would know the literal meaning of the Psalm and its intent when David was referring to who to trust and who not to. Seriously, you can't be this Biblically illiterate. Either that or you're being disingenuous.Go on Rev. You know the meaning of son of man in the Hebrew terms and also the meaning of son of man in Aramaic from Jesus time. Don't twist a simple Biblical passage to suit your ends.
You are the only one twisting simple biblical passages to suit your ends. The Psalm do not trouble me at all, but obviously it troubles you a great deal, and for good reason. You know that when normal people read that Psalm that they are going to conclude that Jesus can't help them and that Jesus is a worm. It seems clear enough to me.

But you don't like what God is telling us about Jesus; that he can't help us and he is a worm. So what is left for you to do? Write lot of words, claim you explained something and lastly insult me and my motives.

What did God say in Hosea 8:4? God stated, "They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not..." God stated, "I knew it not"; he stated it directly. What more do you apologists want? At the end of Gen. 18:21 ("I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know") God directly states that he will then know, which means he did not know beforehand.

Frankly, I don't know what it would take to convince you biblicists that God can come up short in the knowledge field. You won't even accept God's own words, words that did not come from men or atheists, but straight from God's "divine word."

Clearly you do not believe God.

Of course, you know "bantu" education during Apartheid years, well, they forced everybody to take Afrikaans as either second or third language. This has filtered through to other generations - I am sure that True Truth most likely does not even see an Afrikaans person during his working day, yet I would bet my new set of wheels that he is able to keep a decent conversation in it - say hi, goodbye, ask directions or for a product from a grocer.
Also, it is a good language to swear in
Gaelic is a wonderful language for lyricism, poetry, and song - but it does make "Good morning!' sound like a declasration of war.

Which it sometimes is.

And I remember stories from SA. Kids forced to wear a dunce cap and a sign: "I spoke Dutch today".

The Bible is just a seed to make people think beyond the immediate physical world of action/reaction. Gives greater depth to life than just sitting in a bar, watching TV, or endeavoring to keep up with the latest fads. That and other religious works can give one broader horizons and capabilities of survival. It can even stir the minds of pseudo-intellectuals like Topix atheists, not that it will accomplish much.

Religion is a refinement of raw product. For what purpose we can only guess at. But it beats being just one of a herd going nowhere but the slaughterhouse.

That is one way to identify a Christian. Dishonesty is another.

Here is more evidence to prove to normal people that the Bible is unreliable and can not be trusted:

The Bible is replete with statements to the effect that God is a Unity; he is one: there is none like him. The following are a few that could be mentioned:

"...the Lord he is God; there is none else beside him" (Deut. 4:35);
"...for there is none like thee, neither is there any god beside thee" (2 Sam. 7:22);
"I am God and there is none like me" (Isa. 46:9).

You have nothing else going for you except pretending you know something the rest of us don't know. And with each and every post I prove that what you know is wrong and divorced from reality.
I understand you are upset and I will make this promise to you; when you and the other pew warmers stop lying I'll stop posting the truth.
PS. Thanks for plugging the Encyclopedia of Biblical Errancy, I highly recommend it to everyone who wants to know about the errors in the Bible. It is an excellent resource for fighting your stupidity and ignorance.

Interesting. RR does want us to accept that he magically knows the thoughts of God. Since he can't ask this God for help in proving that this alleged God actually exists it just becomes another dog and pony show. RR has no credibility.

And here is another example that the Bible has no credibility either:

Besides numerous statements asserting the unity, the indivisibility of God, the Bible also provides additional information in opposition to the Trinity.

First, Gen. 6:3 states God would never become flesh. Jews interpret the verse as saying, "My spirit shall never more abide in man, since he too is flesh." But, if Jesus was God and man simultaneously, then divinity would have rested in a man, i.e., flesh.

Second, 2 Chron. 6:18 and 1 Kings 8:27 state God (i.e. Jesus) would never dwell on earth.

Third, although called God by others, Jesus never directly said he was God. According to one Christian denomination called a cult, Satan, too, was called God (2 Cor. 4:4).

Fourth, if the Holy Ghost was a person, as Trinitarians allege, then how could he have filled 120 people simultaneously (acts 2)?

Fifth, how could the Son, who is God eternal, be equal in age to the Father who is God Eternal? By definition, a son must be younger than the father; in which case they can't be equal.

Sixth, how could Jesus be God, i.e. eternal, when several verses show he was created at a particular point in time: Rev. 3:14, Prov. 8:22-23 RSV, Col. 1:15 RSV.

You're undoubtedly the LOUDEST in the room. As I said in my previous post, you obviously lack the capacity to differentiate between Christian mythology and reality. Not surprisingly, you lack the objectivity to study the myths plagiarized by the terrestrial founders of Christianity in assembling the damn bible. You need professional de-conversion assistance, kid.
http://www.truthbeknown.com/origins.htm
Despite all of this literature continuously being cranked out and the significance of the issue, in the public at large there remains a serious lack of formal and broad education regarding religion and mythology, and most individuals are highly uninformed in this area. Concerning the issue of Christianity, for example, the majority of people are taught in most schools and churches that Jesus Christ was an actual historical figure and that the only controversy regarding him is that some people accept him as the Son of God and the Messiah, while others do not. However, whereas this is the raging debate most evident in this field today, it is not the most important. Shocking as it may seem to the general populace, the most enduring and profound controversy in this subject is whether or not a person named Jesus Christ ever really existed.
Although this debate may not be evident from publications readily found in popular bookstores, when one examines this issue closely, one will find a tremendous volume of literature that demonstrates, logically and intelligently, time and again that Jesus Christ is a mythological character along the same lines as the Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Sumerian, Phoenician, Indian or other godmen, who are all presently accepted as myths rather than historical figures. Delving deeply into this large body of work, one uncovers evidence that the Jesus character is based upon much older myths and heroes from around the globe. One discovers that this story is not, therefore, a historical representation of a Jewish rebel carpenter who had physical incarnation in the Levant 2,000 years ago. In other words, it has been demonstrated continually for centuries that this character, Jesus Christ, was invented and did not depict a real person who was either the "son of God" or was "evemeristically" made into a superhuman by enthusiastic followers.

This discussion thread exists to provide you with a platform to prove your Biblegod exists. In over half a million posts all of you pew warmers have failed to offer even the slightest bit of proof for God existence. No proof = no god.

My main objective is to show normal people that the Bible is unreliable and not trustworthy and I do that by quoting the Bible.

For example:

Why do biblicists cling so stubbornly to a belief that is so irrational as to all but destroy their intellectual credibility? Why do they insist that Jesus is both fully man in every sense of the word and fully God in every sense of the word? Why? Because the alternative is even worse. They are trapped between a wall and a cliff: Jesus must be God and man simultaneously. To begin with the Bible repeatedly says that only God can be mankind's savior: "I, even I, am the Lord; and besides me there is no savior" (Isa. 43:11).(Also Hosea 3:4, Psalm 3:8, and Isa. 43:3).

I didn challenge it. I told you science does not learn, as you have claimed. Science is a field, or a category of many fields of study.
Blah blah blah, no normal person accepts you as an authority on Science.

On several occasions Jesus equated himself with God, although he never directly said he was God:

(a) "I and the Father are one" (John 10:30);
(b) "...he that hath seen me hath seen the Father" (John 17:22);
(c) "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the word was God" (John 1"1).(See also: John 10:38, 14:9-11, 17:11, 21-23, Col. 2:9)

Yet, a far larger number of statements clearly shows Jesus did not equate himself with God, in which case he couldn't be mankind's savior:

(a) "Why callest me good? There is none good but one, that is God" Matt. 19:17);
(b) "for my Father is greater than I" (John 14:28);
(c) "My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me" (John 7:16);
(d) "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (Matt. 27:46);
(e) "Who has gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God" (1 Peter 3:22); (See also: Mark 13:32, 1 cor. 11:3, John 5:19, 20:17, Matt. 26:39 and many others).

Biblical supporters use the escape mechanism rather freely by alleging the former comments were made by Jesus-the-God; while the latter were made by Jesus-the-man. So, depending on the dictates of expediency, the inconsistent comments by Jesus can be reconciled. Without the Trinity, Jesus would appear to be a hopelessly confused young man, more sick than savior.

you may get the self-righteous and religious with this satanic accusation, BUT Jesus defeated sin on the cross and humiliated his enemies openly over 2,000 years ago and therefore we're no longer under the law of sin and death, but now we're under the law of love and liberty in Christ Jesus!!!

No proof = no god.

How could Jesus-the-man be sinless, since all men have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Rom. 3:23)? If Jesus is sinless, as many verses show (1 Peter 2:22, 1 John 3:3, 5, 7, 2 Cor. 5:12, Heb. 4:15, 7:26), then he wasn't human, for all have sinned; he was only God. And if he was only God, how could he say, "My Father is greater than I"? On the other hand, if these "sinless" verses only refer to Jesus-the-God, while Jesus-the-man did sin, then he needs salvation as much as anyone. Who died on the Cross to save him? And lastly, having an innocent individual suffer punishment on a cross in order to atone for acts of mankind makes no more sense than having all mankind suffer for the acts of one man--Adam
