Premature Judgement

fawlty35:

I haven’t logged into this youtube account in over 3 years.

The Bible is full of allegorical tales from earlier cultures. It doesn’t take a linguistics ‘Professor’ to know this. It seems that the ‘Professor’ feels like he has found some truth that only the “academic few” are aware of. This is not the case.

For you, the Bible and God are one in the same. Both you and the ‘Professor’ believed at one time that something written by Man is the ‘Word of God’.

When this no longer appears to be true, you discount God entirely as did the ‘Professor’. Try reading Bernard Haisch for a different perspective. You seem to have committed to a one track analysis of God’s existence, largely led by someone who may be looking for answers himself (reason he was reading the amazon reviews in the first place).

“For you, the Bible and God are one in the same.”

Ummm… nope! The blatant refutation of this particular statement occurs at 0:25 in this video:

Prejudiced and mistaken judgements like this happen a lot when people don’t watch the entire series before critiquing it.

  1. What is it with Christians and their inability to present a logical argument? It’s like every time they “accuse” you of something the response is: “uh, no, your is refuted here”.

    I’m beginning to suspect there is a gene to regulate confirmation bias strength in people and it’s over active in the religious.

  2. Insert “argument|lie|statement” in between “your” and “is”…

  3. [Get ready. Long comment ahead.]

    “Prejudiced and mistaken judgements like this happen a lot when people don’t watch the entire series before critiquing it.”

    I think his criticism of you still stands, actually. I also notice that you skipped the Bernard Haisch part of his comment, unless of course you’ve read the guy.

    I learned that the Bible included mythological embellishments from my Catholic school’s priests. It didn’t “shake my faith”. In fact, I always expected that to be the case. Even the early Christians knew this, which is why they took most of their allegorical methods from the works of Philo of Alexandria and the constantly evolving interpretations of Pharisaic Judaism.

    It seems that you and the professor were fideistic fundamentalists. If so, then your choice was between faith (whatever that is) and evidentialism (basically eliminative materialism). With such a bad dichotomy to begin with, no wonder you sided with the latter.
