This is one of the most frequent, and revealingly ignorant, questions in this thread. Why do people discuss anything at all? I know, I see the blank look from here as you ponder that mystery. I know you are incapable of understanding, but there's a whole lot more to the Bible than just "believing in it". There are historical, cultural, social, paleographical, philosophical angles, and much more. We never said it wasn't an influential book in Western history - just that it's nothing more than a book, written by men, for men.

Bill Maher is a documentary? really?
Have you checked the sources for the film Zeitgeist? They censor facts that would discredit everything they say, claiming Jesus was born in Dec 25, and claiming there were copycat dieties BC w/virgin birth.
How can there be copies of your jesus before your jesus was invented and based on those older dieties?

<quoted text>.....There are no contradictions, only poor understanding...
Self-contradiction #1: Matthew 1:1-16 Twenty-eight generations from King David to Jesus

Luke 3: 23-31 Forty-three generations from King David to Jesus

None of the names match, except for David, Joseph and Jesus.

There's also a discrepancy of fifteen generations.

Care to explain how that's *not* a self-contradiction?

And Mary isn't mentioned in either genealogy, so don't even try to tell us that one of them is hers, regardless if it makes her fifteen generations older or younger than her husband.

The *Last Words* of Jesus, according to the “first hand witnesses” that Christians claim are real and accurate, and therefore irrefutable:

"And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, E’li, E’li, la’ma sa-bach’tha-ni? That is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"
(Matthew 27: 46)

(By the way; if Jesus was God, and therefore was in control of all events, and if he actually chose to die on the cross, who was he beseeching? Himself?)

"When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost."
(John 19:30)

Luke 23:46–“And Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said,‘Father, into thy hands I commit my Spirit.’ And having said this, he breathed his last.”

Which is it? Let’s see some Christian prove that these are not further self-contradictions of the Bible. Do I really need to go further? Why should *anyone* believe any of this crap?

All the flood stories originated from the same story.
Same thing in this case.

Babel. Everybody had heard the stories and promises. And took them with them when they dispersed.

Aside from the fact that it was filled with lies?
Or is that what made it one of the all-time best Christian posts?
The Christian brothers & sisters base their confidence on two truths 1.“all Scripture is given by inspiration of God”(2 Timothy 3:16) and 2. an elementary rule of Scripture is that God has deliberately included seeming contradictions in His Word to “snare” the proud. He has “hidden” things from the “wise and prudent” and “revealed them to babes”(Luke 10:21), purposely choosing foolish things to confound the wise (1 Corinthians 1:27).

There were FOUR religions.
1. Judaism.
2. Christianity - came from Judaism.
3. Pagan Rome - became Catholic.
Paganism is not a "big religion." Judaism, christianity and islam are all organized religions, based on the same god, and with their own hierarchies; there are no such hierarchies in pagan beliefs.

You don't know much about this stuff, do you? Do you just parrot whatever your christian masters tell you?

There is plenty of evidence for Christianity. Jesus is an historic fact recorded by all the historians of the day. Israel, Jerusalem, Egypt, Babylon, the list of evidence is long, even as the marxist atheistic world revolution would censor this information.

Everyone has some religion. Either they are Christian, Catholic, Muslim or pagan atheist.

Your fundamentalist sites are worthless as sources of "information." You have nothing but religitard propaganda.

Have you burned any witches or jews or other accused heretics lately, or just a few good books?

LOL.
This is the inevitable result of increasing religious entropy.

Eventually, the various particles of belief will fracture down to cults-of-one.

And it'll all be Brownian motion.

Yes Christian website have info on them. We wont be censoring anything for you.

The one is a lecture by a professor of history. Another is to a non-Christian site.

You are obviously Catholic. Nobody else holds those views.

Christians did not burn any witches or jews. That was the Roman Church and they called everyone who was not Catholic a 'witch', including the Protestant Queen Elizabeth I.
