This review is from: Lost Scriptures: Books that Did Not Make It into the New Testament (Paperback)
A selection of texts and extracts of early Christian writing, mostly purporting to be by apostles, some of which were for a while thought canonical, but which has not come down to us. Divided like the New Testament itself into Gospels, Acts, Letters and Acolypses, the works sometimes recount the familiar Bible story, and in other cases are rich in implausible miracles, which were seemingly needed to bolster the faith of early congregations. If the known New Testament miracles may strengthen faith, these are so outlandish as discredit all such stories. The pages are set out in double columns with numbered verses as in the usual presentation of Bible texts, and are eminently readable. Those who enjoy this book (like me) will certainly find it raises many questions, and want to learn more.

What makes one miracle more implausible than another?

In reply to an earlier post on 27 Oct 2012 19:31:40 BDT
Exactly. Any miracle is by it's very definition implausible, or to be more precise scientifically impossible and against logic.

In reply to an earlier post on 27 Oct 2012 19:37:59 BDT
So what?

Since when was the Whole limited by what is logical and what is scientifically possible?

In reply to an earlier post on 28 Oct 2012 10:32:25 GMT
Because that is reality. There are no such things as miracles.
