No, you are the one who gets 'spoon fed' [wrong] 'answers' so you can go around
thinking you know stuff, instead of actually getting down to checking things and
finding stuff out yourself.
The question before you is how to prove that the bible was written [inspired by] by
To do this requires both that you prove a gods existence, and that you then prove that
that god wrote/inspired the bible.
You cannot do this by saying the bible proves itself as that is a circular argument and
a logical fallacy.
You have to assume that the bible is true before you can take it's word that it is true.
This especially falls down when it's proven to be false.
Until you can prove that the bible is the word of an actually existent god to the satisfaction
of people who don't already believe it's true. Citing passages from the bible as 'evidence'
is utterly and completely pointless.
You have to prove it's true FIRST.
And any claim that the bible 'proves' itself true is a logical fallacy.
