  1. It always amazes me how little some people know, while refusing knowledge built up over thousands of years.
    Like, there's 2,000 years of recorded Christian thought, more of the Torah, but some guy at ~30(?) definitely figured out everything all those years of theologians never thought of. While simultaneously saying everything is subjective except that everything is subjective, which is definitely objective.

  2. It's not the bible that's the problem, it's the people who use it as a weapon to inflict their own prejudices, grudges and psychological hangups on others. The bible is just a collection of ancient Jewish literature that can be interpreted according to the desires of the reader.

  3. I wish Ray would bring up the historical record of Jesus' existence outside of the Bible. People love to compare Jesus to mythological gods who never existed. IN FACT, no historical records exist pertaining to these mythological names. He is literally the most documented person in existence. To start, at least 15000 original Greek manuscripts were found citing His effects on humanity while He was on the earth and the effects of His resurrection three days after His crucifixion. To the people who literally died for what they experienced after seeing the Son of God in the flesh after his brutal crucifixion.

    Do human beings die for a lie? NO.

  4. Interesting. He said he wanted to believe God was merciful, yet when handed a reminder of what he already knew – at least in part – about God's mercy, he seemed to think little of it. I hope I read him wrong.

  5. It’s so interesting that on one side of the world, God, angels and demons are considered fact. It’s so Common to have some sort of experience with spirits…but in our North American society people are so far from what is true..they cannot even be convinced of the simplest of truths….really really sad..

  6. The bible is a inconsistent and immoral set of primitive, superstitious rules that sanctioned slavery, thought policing, child abuse and murder. I don’t see how a moral individual could honestly defend the bible .

  7. Compared to many other People in this world i have a good life for not sharing my food with the hungry, i deserve hell. I do not belief in God and hell, but i have to do better, because i am staring to create my own hell, because of guilt

  8. Wages of sin is death. People die ( physically) because we live in a fallen world. Not necessarily because of sin. When a 3 day old baby sudden dies it’s because the baby sinned? NO! Because of fallen world, not because of Adam, or sin.

  9. Going off the biblical depiction, God is evil. What else can you say to describe someone willing to destroy and torture the souls of people who didn't pick the right book to believe? Honestly Satan is right to rebel against a deity like that.

  10. For those basing their atheism on lack of physical evidence. Well here is a fact you were definitely unaware of. Did you know you don't need physical evidence, aka indirect and direct evidence, to prove someone or some event happened? Now before someone responds by saying I am making that up look up Corpus Delicti first for a better grasp what this principle can mean I suggest reading it from the Cornell Law School website or any Law website. Now for those of you who have read Wallace you probably are thinking he must have been making up what he said except if you have researched this term then you just found out no he wasn't. The whole principle stems from the fact that you can still prove an action had occurred or person was at such and such place by proving the action or event did take place. For instance, historically we now know the Atlantis legend was based on an actual historical event because we know from geological history there was in fact an eruption which devastated the Mediterannian and second there is an island that matches Plato's description from Solon that's the island of thera. Ok so that's an archeological example of corpus delicti. Now with Jesus we have evidence of a resurrection because we have 11 eyewitnesses who refuse to change their stories even under torture and death. Now that's compelling because something convinced these men they saw a resurrected man to the point they were willing to die for it. So that's evidence, using the corpus delicti standard, that something happened. And I heard the scam argument but the problem with that argument is the whole point of a scam is to reap the rewards of the scam then move to the next scam before someone finds out it is a scam not die for it so someone else can. You will not find a single scam artist that actually dies for their scam, unless it's by accident but that's a different story because it's unintentional, it's just not part of their MO. So what they saw was what they saw. 2nd Rome only needed to do one thing to end the 1st century church at it's root and that was produce the body of Jesus and they never did. A few weeks into the search and they probably just needed any body since it wouldn't be recognizable anyway and that never happens and the Romans had every reason to find the body because one of their biggest issues at the time was keeping the jews under control because Palestine at the time was an area that frequently had rebellions so stories of a resurrected man would be cause for more of these rebellions to occur, or so they thought. So not finding the exact body wasn't an option for the Romans and they never found the body. So something happened which caused the body to disappear and convince 11 men they saw a resurrected man. Now before you start presenting your alternatives i suggest you look up cases that solely relied on this principle first because I have a good idea what your responses are but you might want to check if any of those even flew when it came to being used as a counter argument because I am willing to bet it didn't. Btw this is why the pink unicorn in the garage argument doesn't actually fly even if it was presented by a PHD in zoology, I suggest you note that because zoology doesn't deal with disappearances it deals with animals, criminal justice and forensics deals with disappearances and courts make their decisions on did this happen or did it not happen based on what Criminal Justice and Forensics reveals in a given case which is why Corpus Delicti is very relevant to questions about God or Jesus.

  11. What's to like about the Bible?

    I know what the Bible says. The Bible condones slavery, child abuse, extreme sexism, genocide, animal sacrifice, human sacrifice, disrespect of gay people and cruel and unusual punishment for minor infractions.

    The Bible has been used to justify all means of heinous behavior towards others for centuries now. Luckily, we've been able to move societal norms (in the civilized portions of the world) past the moral codes of primitive peoples.
