The Truth Is…
Nothing in the Bible that pertains to God can be proven as fact.
The Bible is wrong about every important “fact” that believers use to support their faith.
The overwhelming number of
- scientific impossibilities
- logical impossibilities
- internal contradictions
- differences in theology between the Old and New Testaments
- differences in theology between writers of the gospel
- numerical contradictions
- mathematical errors
- incorrect historical references
- failed prophecies
- failed promises
- false authorship
- heinous acts of crimes against humanity (slavery, torture, infanticide, genocide, abortion)
found in the Torah and the Bible cannot possibly be the inspired, inerrant word of God.
Since it is impossible to “prove” the existence or non–existence of God, we must rely on circumstantial evidence.
The Truth Is…
The preponderance of circumstantial evidence leads to the conclusion that there is no god
- The magnitude of human suffering throughout the world, throughout the ages argues against the existence of a loving God. Think Somalia 2011.
- No prayer that could prove God’s existence has ever been answered.
- According to the Bible, between 1500 BC and 1000 BC, an allegedly loving God ordered or participated in 135 separate incidents of murder; killing over 24,000,000 innocent men, women, children and fetuses. There is no documentation of these stupendous slaughters anywhere other than the Bible. He has not been seen or heard from since.
- God only intervened on behalf of the Jews, and no one else. Thus one must conclude that his “appearances” were created by Jewish zealots intent on proving that “their” God is far superior to your God.
- Anything that can be scientifically proved is presented incorrectly in the Bible.
- Foundational stories (Creation, Adam, Eve, Flood, Ark, Exodus, Moses) never happened.
- No corroborating archeological evidence has been found; contrary evidence has been found
- No mention of of the Jews in ancient writings of Egyptians and Greeks
- No mention of the Bible’s supernatural events mentioned in the writings of the Egyptians, Greeks or Romans
- No mention of Jesus or his miracles in the ancient writings of the Romans.
- Real bad things happen to good people, real good things happen to bad people.
- An allegedly omniscient God constantly asks questions, has fears, human reactions.
- God/Jesus are no different than religions of their times. I.e. virgin birth, sacrifice, suffering, raised deity, ad infinitum.
- Other religions were well established in other parts of the world in 1500 BC – 1000 BC. There is no resemblance between these religions and the Jewish/Christian God. If the J/C God were universal, He would have destroyed their religions just like he tried to do with all the non-Jewish religions in the Old Testament because “His name is “jealous””.
- The Jewish God made his presence known only to a select few, in a very small part of the world, long ago. Thus knowledge of the Judo/Christian God is based on the writings and oral tradition of men who wrote over 2000 years ago; then these writings were edited, combined, translated and copied multiple times in multiple languages, all by men with multiple agendas. This is a very tenuous scenario upon which to base a religion.
- There are over 10,000 distinct religions. Within Christianity, there are 33,830 denominations. IF there were a universal God, there wouldn’t be 10,000 different religions.
- Most of their adherents of these10,000 different “religions” are a product of their time (century) location (country) and parent’s religion. Had they been born in 1950, in Jackson Mississippi to white Christian parents, chances are they would be Christian.
Circumstantial Evidence for God
- The writings of 20 – 40 ignorant, superstitious, unknown, Taliban-mentality men, with unknown agendas writing between 3500 and 2000 years ago.
For example, it is unclear in these writings whether Jesus is God (a matter of debate among the 1000 denominations of Christianity), (just one more example of inconsistency in the Bible), but, if you consider Jesus to be God, then …
- to whom is Jesus praying?
- how can a God die?
There is no God
Man made God in his own image; a God of fear, hatred, jealousy, murder, bigotry and retribution.
