The problem is you can't proove
they're lies to someone who believes. You can only reasonably assume they are fairytales and bed-time stories and point out inconsistencies. Noone who believes would actually believe (funny, that) that the bible is anything but
the thruth. Why are you persuing this matter? I mean, if you did it for yourself, because you wanted to know something, I could understand. But you seem content on trying to bring down those who believe in the bible (who even might have a need
to believe in the bible) from their faith. You want to make them see that the book they believe in so much is a lie? Why? What's it to you?
You'll only end up banging your head against the wall, because believe me, very few of those people will change their religion. In fact, the more you yell about the bible being a lie, and pointing out all the inconsistencies in it, the more certain they will be that you are wrong. (For some funny reason.)
Please, don't get me wrong here. I'm not asking you to shut up. I kinda enjoy thrashing on the good book. But only for the fun of it. Not to try and actually change anyones belief, because honestly, I don't have the time, strength or will to do so.
Am I making any sense here, or should I just shut up?
