You don't NEED to understand the book as a whole. You DON'T need to know what happened to Adam and Eve to know about the shape of the Earth. You DON'T need to know about God's endgame plans to know about the shape of the Earth. In fact you already ADMITTED you have no idea what the heck God has up his, uh, sleeves. Does he wear sleeves? I bet you can't even tell me that either.By interpret i mean trying and understand the book as a whole
Point is that you can take ALL the passages about the shape of the Earth, and when combined, they make NO sense. Unless one understands that the Bible was written by an ancient bunch people by multiple different authors over a period of many centuries. And those writers didn't really know much about the world beyond where they lived.
Isn't it? Because I've met fundies on here who DO think that's how it works. That's why creationists on the whole tend to be not very good at morality. And they don't care anyway because they think that when it's time to meet their maker that they've got a get out of hell free card.and no i cant just sin all the time thats not how it works
