            No, that's not the point of the thread. Try to remember what the topic was. I know it's hard but think really hard or scroll up and you will remember. I asked why atheists think that "deboonking" some random verse somehow disproves all of religion or all of the Bible. Or why they think "deboonking" one thing an author said debunks everything else that author said, such as some random quote by a bishop. Do atheists just wrongly assume that everyone holds a doctrine of inerrancy? That's the question I was asking. Then you sperged out for "proof" and immediately when I provided it, you quickly changed topic exactly like I predicted you would.

          • 5 months ago
            Anonymous

            No, it's not. My question is why atheists assume that it is inerrant and infallible. Suppose you found an error in a science textbook. Would you assume that there was some mistake, and look for the correct answer or would you immediate jump to, "HOLY SHIT THIS BOOK IS SO STUPID I JUST DISPROVED SCIENCE LUL SCIENTISTS ARE FRICKING MORONS". Why do you assume that anyone, let alone faithful Christians, would find that a compelling argument against religion? When I find a "contradiction", I don't immediately assume to have debunked all of religion. My first assumption is maybe I didn't understand what I read and should read it again with more context, like reasonanle person would.

            It's never seen as an error no matter how illogical it is because it's "A holy book from god".
            Denying that makes you an evil nonbeliever.

            >>You pick up a 5000 year old ancient book that has been translated into English and misunderstand what you read.
            Any nonbeliever that just objectively thinks about what they're reading get immediately silenced. Thus the errors remain.

    But it's usually the religious using it out of context. Take the "lucifer" reference in one of the books that ends up being a mockery of Babylonian astrology and living, existing kings at the time that people say refers to the devil. They always say it refers to Lucifer when reading the book shows it isn't. But they ignore everything after that part. Atheists (unbelievers in a given religion in general really) are the best at reading those scriptures since they don't read it having to come to a predetermined conclusion that proves their god. They can read it with an outside perspective and be neutral because they have no stake in it.

        How is it not true? I can read the books and not have a vested interest in making sure the outcome necessarily agrees with what I already believe. I don't have to interpret things a certain way to make things fit whether they do or not. I can know the real historical, cultural, etc., contexts. Whereas as a Christian you can't. You're gonna already have a fixed belief that will be whatever your sect/you think it means. And you have to stick to that against any evidence to the contrary. This is what all religions do. Very few ever actually convert. So is the verse about kings and not Lucifer? Well... the author was divinely inspired and REALLY meant Lucifer and just pretended it was about kings to reference this other thing. It's eaey to just look through and look for some random passage or make some ad hoc excuse that seemingly harmonizes it in your head. As a believer they cannot view it in an impartial sense. That's completely alien and unfomfortable for them.

      Another issue: schizoid nonsense. Say you point to the Lucifer thing and it being about an existing king. Well they don't care about that context. What they'll do is usually cite a whole different book and verse that they take to be applicable to the "out of context" verse that makes it fit. Did it become about kings? Well, in Job it says... Oh was that verse about slaying Babylonian babies? Well in the New Testament... and so on. Until you get this weird cross referencing passages that different authors at different times and with different religious conceptions said and they just look for some verse (which is trivially easy in a book as large as the Bible) that will cover something. It's kinda sad how they do it. Because if you keep following and allowing their "context" you start getting to some real schizo shit where nothing means anything it actually says and every verse has to now take on new, completely different contexts. A few times I've even had people cite the same verses as context for completely different scenarios and shit. It's like watching a human mind just spin its wheels and going nowhere. The psychology of the religious mind is bizarre to me. I wish it was less taboo to study them and find out what the hell is going on in their heads.

        If I found Christian arguments reasonable or logical I would accept them. Much Christian biblical commentary appears at odds with more historical critical analysis, and when it comes to the troublesome quotes, the apologism usually only makes sense of you are already giving the bible and the Chirstian faith the benefit of the doubt in the first place.
