5.0 out of 5 stars Romping read, 14 Dec. 2009
This review is from: The Holy Bible (Paperback)
In "God" the church has created the ultimate anti-hero. A truly weird and disturbed imagination and a look into a nightmare world where logic, reason and science play second fiddle to the kind of malevolent dictator that makes those of ACTUAL history look like playful little kittens.

From Holiness' review debunking this atheist nonsense:

"The Bible is a collection of books written over thousands of years by different people from all walks of life who were responsible for writing the books in The Bible. The Bible was a huge influence on English literature (just like Shakespeare) especially the King James Version and still remains quite a influence even today. Yet there are some who dismiss The Bible or ignore the facts behind it.

Most criticism on The Bible started when Darwin published his book "On the Origins of Species" which would later become the holy book for atheists who formed an extremist sect known as Darwinism (the difference between a Darwinist and evolutionist is that the former devoutly preaches evolution while the later simply accepts it). Most of these Darwinists today are made at school when they are first taught evolution and noting that it contradicts the Genesis account of life, they dismiss the rest of The Bible as "superstitious nonsense" nevermind the fact that nothing in The Bible teaches superstition (belief in a god is not superstition and there have been many great minds in the past - and present - who believe in a god for logical and sound reasons). These extremist atheists ignore the narrative behind the whole bible as well as the archaeological evidence for many of the events.

Indeed, now there are geologists who have accepted that a flood did occur in the Middle East. This is not only backed up by geological evidence but by the stories/records from different religions and cultures across the world which pretty much have the same story. There are hundreds of these stories all with the same similarity of a man building a boat to protect his family and animals. One might say this just shows that story of Noah was inspired by an older religion/story (such as the Epic of Giligamesh) but considering this exact story is found in hundreds of other flood stories show that they most likely derived from an older oral tradition about a flood occurring that found their way into various religions and cultures.

A local flood certainly doesn't contradict The Biblical account of the great flood considering that most of human civilization was centered in the Middle East (where human civilization also begun and where the oldest traces can be found) and this would have been considered the "world" at the time.

Next up, we have Mitochondrial Eve and Y-Chromosome Adam. These aren't the first humans and I don't believe they are the Biblical Adam and Eve but the science behind them is that all humans alive today can trace their ancestry back to Mitochondrial Eve and Y-Chromosome Adam proving that it's not genetically impossible for humanity to be descended from two people and contrary to atheist claims, The Bible does not contend that Adam and Eve were the only humans created otherwise Cain would not have been able to have found a wife after being exiled and wouldn't talk about being fearful of people who might kill him. Of course all of this can be disputed unlike the next fact.

Biologists found genetic traces of Jewish Priesthood dating back to one man. In Jewish tradition, all Jewish priests (not rabbis) are descended from Aaron (the brother of Moses). Now scientists have found that Jewish men - in this priesthood lineage - share distinctive genetic traits supporting The Biblical account that priesthood is passed from father to son. This individual is known as Y-chromosomal Aaron who is identified as the Aaron from The Bible. This is significant in proving the historicity behind The Bible. Now if Aaron was real, who's to say that Moses wasn't?

Fast forward past a few books of laws, regulations and laws and we come to the Books of Judges and Kings were have shown to be historically accurate too. No historian or archaeologist doubts the existence of the historical kingdoms of Judah and Israel anymore and even most the constructions and fortifications ordered in The Bible be the kings have now been excavated (Tell Hazor Solomon gates, Tel Gezer, En Gedi temple) once again proving the historicity behind The Bible. Then there are other archaeological discoveries which confirm events recorded in The Bible such as The Cyrus Cylinder, The Moabite Stone, The Lachish Letters, The Shishaq Relief, The Nabonidus Cylinder and so on.

So while it's in debate that some parts of The Bible may be metaphorical, it's been proven without a doubt that there's also a great deal of truth behind it and many of its events.

Of course none of this proves the supernatural aspects. However we have the fulfilled Biblical prophecies for that. Atheists love to claim that there prophecies were written after being fulfilled but radio carbon dating of scriptures (such as the Dead Sea Scrolls) prove otherwise. The Bible accurately predicted the destruction of Tyre at the hands of Alexander The Great and contrary to atheist claims (who seemingly ignore history or who are just ignorant of it), the ancient city of Tyre was actually pulled apart by Alexander so he could build a causeway to the island fort of Tyre. In other words, the city was thrown into the sea (as accurately predicted in The Bible) and the old area that Tyre stood on was never rebuilt on. While there is a new Tyre, it does not stand on the old site and was not constructed using the ruins of the old city. This is just one of the many fulfilled Biblical prophecies.

Old Testament aside and now we come to the New Testament the most important collection of books for the Christian. The New Testament contains four gospels, all recounting the life, teachings, sayings and parables of Christ Jesus who taught of love, peace and forgiveness (something the atheist is unable to recognized in their brainwashed extremist mindset). Those who say Jesus didn't exist show their ignorance of history. The historical evidence for Jesus is so overwhelming that anyone who engages in some research on him will see that he did exist. Even secular historians such as Bart Ehrman (an agnostic) have come to this conclusion.

Historians near the period of Christ did mention Jesus as well as the early Christians. Tacitus, Josephus, Pliny the Younger, Thallus (cited by other historians for his account on Jesus back in 50 A.D). If Jesus didn't exist, there would have been people about in 50/60 A.D who would have said and who would have challenged the disciples. Atheists like to use the myth that humans didn't live very long back then (and while this was true for poor folk throughout history, it's not true for everyone) but if a 10 year old child was around back in 30 A.D, they should have lived around to 50 A.D or 60 A.D. In any case, instead of historians of that period (who should know the history back then better than anyone today) denouncing Christ as being fake, they are instead mentioning Christ in their records as Christianity eventually grew throughout the Roman empire (the very empire persecuting it) and eventually came to spread across the entire world. The martyrdom of the early Christians is also more than enough proof for the truth behind the miracles of Christ and his disciples.

Conclusion:

The atheists who write their little pathetic, infantile and emotional-charged reviews for The Bible clearly know nothing about narrative, context, archaeology behind it, outside sources, extra-biblical books or non-canonical books. All of the criticisms of God's actions in the Old Testament have been answered by Christian apologetics which go into depth with scripture verses revealing the narrative (i.e David's son dying is often seen by atheists and anti-Christians as God killing the children when it was actually David who condemned his son to death, by his response to Nathan about paying fourfold for the murder he had committed, in fact, it should be noted that four of David's sons died).

In the end we are in an era where scientific progress is being made in great leaps. Our knowledge of the cosmos is increasing and STILL Christianity remains the largest religion in the world with over 2 billion living adherents. Atheism on the other-hand takes up a small tiny percentage and is only large on the internet because it allows for a place for minority groups to gather. These extremist atheists - pretending to be scientific - prowl across the internet jumping upon anything mentioning God or religion but they're no where to be seen in real life.

And yes, as always, I won't be viewing comments. I don't have time to debate with those that don't listen and who are ignorant of archaeology, geology, theology, philosophy, literature, context, narrative and history."

Also The Big Bang theory was proposed by a Catholic priest and atheists are the ones who happen to be opposed to it with their belief in the debunked steady state theory. Also evolution doesn't debunk God. It simply explains the variation of life. I suggest you atheists take some proper science lessons. Good day.
