And so it begins.... the

And so it begins.... the apologists point to their happy sky daddy book and say it is the perfect word of an all knowing god. Then when you point out that this assertion is laughable, the twisting and turning begins to try to explain why these rantings of a tribe of bronze age murdering peasants is just, moral, correct and provides useful insights about how to live our lives. I am disgusted

That's why they are called apologists. They have a lot to say "I am sorry!" for.

Ask the hardest questions in

Ask the hardest questions in the bible? Here's a question. What credible, tangible evidence do you have that the bible is even reliable? I mean CREDIBLE evidence, not eye witness testimony. That is proven unreliable time, after time, after time, not to mention that if this is the word of God, then it should be comin out of his mouth, not the mouths of eye witnesses. So what real, credible evidence do you have that the bible can even be trusted?

What is your problem with

What is your problem with eyewitness testimony? How has it been proven unreliable? What makes it unreliable?

What's that you say? There

What's that you say? There is eye witness testimony in the holy babble you say? Prove it. There are in fact copies of copies of documents, with no original manuscripts. There are books in which there are stories of people who assert that they heard this or saw that or met someone, but eyewitness testimony without corroboration and without and possibility of fact checking and interviewing the eyewitness is in fact an unreliable way of getting to the truth?

Sort of. I like to give

Sort of. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. But this is just pathetic. Not one answer for me... and apparently not one answer for anyone else. As I expected, atheists know much more about the happy sky god book than the christians... including it appears this guy attending bible college... whatever the fuck that is.

"I'll get back to you." "I'll get back to you." I wrote a thread about this shit. These idiots are sent by their youth ministers to cause havoc. They're just young punks following orders!

Do you have any proof of this

Do you have any proof of this claim.

I agree with you. You'd

I agree with you. You'd think these trolls wouldn't need to get back. IF this book were the inspired word of a god, then it would be obvious that the writing was so profound that the answers to these questions from atheists would be obvious and there would be no need to get back to us on any questions.

Hello to all. Sorry for late

Hello to all. Sorry for late response. So I have asked them about 2versions of creationism. What they did? They suspended me for a week without giving any reason. Thats what happen when we question. I think I have to close this thread. Well I will try for 1 more time with someone else. Thanks all all of you. You helped me.

They don't like you questioning their little world of religion. Sad that you got suspended for a week. Maybe your at the wrong school of learning.

They suspended you?! That's insane. They are going to be praying hard. I never dared ask or even think about contradictions in the Bible when I was a believer. Good for you:)

@MJM: "They suspended me for a week without giving any reason."

I hope you learned something from that.

I can think of only one reason for punishing someone for asking questions. They know that what the're teaching you is a load of horse crap, and they're terrified that you'll figure that out for yourself. Their forebears in religion would have burned or stoned you for asking questions. But it's the same principle.

Suspended. Good.

Suspended. Good.

Have you come to the conclusion that there are really good reasons not to believe theists claims??

I hope you come to the conclusion that the time to believe any claim is when there is proof that the claim is true. Faith is the excuse people like you give when they don't have any good reason to believe what they want to believe.

Can you give testable evidence your god or any god is real? The bible is not evidence. Have you read the bible from cover to cover? Reading the whole bible is what made me stop being a christian.

Unknown - Stuff that isn't

Unknown - Stuff that isn't prohibited in the New Testament (E.g. like not eating pork, not wearing clothes of two different fabric) are not moral laws...Lying, stealing, homosexuality, bestiality, etc., are issues of morality that deal with all people, everywhere.

Can you tell us where the New Testament specifically prohibits bestiality?

I have 6 questions for you to

I have 6 questions for you to start.
1.) How can people know that God exists if you cannot comprehend God?
Example- We can't comprehend God (or the more often used "God works in mysterious ways"):We comprehend God so God exists.

From a logical stand point this is a paradox.

2.) People often ask that if God were real than God could just prove it. So why doesn't God prove it? A common response is that you need to have faith, a requirement needed but that isn't an answer, or that God says that he does not need, and should not be asked, to prove his existence. If that is so, than why did God talk to prophets and have them write down his words, therefore "ensuring" his existence?

3.) Why does God change his mind so often but Christians say that he does not?
a- God changed the age that people could live because he could not handle us living for so long.
b- God created us with one language, but then confounded them because he was scared of us.
c- God says that there are other gods but none as great as him, but later says there is only Him.
d- God says that he loves us, but often does things in opposition to what we consider decent, let alone love.
e- Moses changed Gods minds numerous times.
f- God changed his mind about how many good people needed to be living in Sodom and Gomorrah multiple times.

There are many more such contradiction.

4.) Jesus never ( in RED ) says anything about homosexuality. Why do his Disciples and Apostle?

5.) In Matthew, Jesus says watch out for false prophets, if someone is in the desert and says they saw Jesus don't believe them. This is the very thing that happened to Saul/Paul, who happens to have written a vast majority of the NT. Why don't Christians ever seem to think that is an issue?

6.) Again in Matthew Jesus says that the bible is corruptible but that it is better to have it than to not. It is also reaffirmed in James. But both Christians and other Books state that the bible can't be change, and yet others state that if you change it you will be cursed. ( which means it can be changed ). Also with each new translation from the original, it does in fact change. Is there an answer for this?

I have left out the specific verses, chapters, and some times books because not only are you a student, but you're a believer and should be more than happy to learn. Also it is not hard to Google them, and your teachers should know them.

This is a repost from a reply in case you missed it. ;)
