Well, apparently, AcrobatMan, enough people are interested in it that this thread hasn't sunk.

FYM is the proper forum for religious debates. So here they are.

If you don't like it, you're free to leave.

Well, when you think about it, we mere mortals only understand one thing in relation to its opposite. It's the world of duality. Would we understand evil without good, happiness without sadness, man without woman, etc? Also, there's an old saying that the truth is what the opposites have in common. Perhaps therein lies one's homework with the Bible. But of course I'm not a Christian...

I enjoy religious discussions...people are always telling me I'm gonna go to hell, I might as well try to figure out why. Or at least why they think I'm gonna go to hell.

Each on of the 143 attempts at biblical understanding could be their own thread.

The general notion of "biblical contradiction" is greeting card theology at best.

Well, that is just it then, lets not talk about it.

I think that is an oversimplification of the issue.

Actually, I said we should discuss the specific notions.


But the broad generalzation of "biblical contradiction" is not scholarly at all.


I've noticed a number of posts that suggest that books attributed to the same author are "actually" written by different authors. The basis for this conclusion are differences in writing style, etc.

I would suggest that if we took everything you wrote over a year or two, I could pick three separate writings that, when analyzed would say that there were different authors for the three writings.

You could, but is there historical evidence to back it up? The words alone do not justify the conclusion.

There is historical evidence of three two for traditions being combined, explained in the fact that they were not a united tribe or nation, but they had similar traditions, stories, and mythologies.

Mine is probably just a case of split personality.

I've made it a rule for my theology: never trust a biblical critique if it financially or professionally benefits the author. If they write a book about why something is different than we've always assumed, they're always lying.

, or not.

If Bono and the boys are hardcore believers in jesus, why is there even a discussion, if you love u2 then u must love the works of Jesus, as bono has stated Jesus is his hero, and emulates him as much as possible. So why all the hubub???????????? If you hate the Bible why even listen to someone like Bono, seems foolhardy, i wouldnt listen to alesiter crowleys type of music.
