Are you asking because you actually want to know, or because you know what I'm going to say and you just want to patronize it? With you and your posts regarding the matter, I'm just going to assume that later.
Yes, I do occasionally patronize religious people on here when I'm bored. I don't take religious beliefs seriously at all, or y'know, respect them, because quite frankly, they don't deserve respect. Totally agree with Christopher Hitchens when he said: "Mockery of religion is one of the most essential things because to demystify supposedly 'holy text dictated by god' and show that they are man made and what you have to show is there internal inconsistencies and absurdities. One of the beginnings of human emancipation is the ability to laugh at authority... it is an indispensable thing people can call it blasphemy if they like, but if they call it that they have to assume there is something to be blasphemed - some divine work, well I don't accept the premise." I do tend to try to focus my efforts primarily towards idiots who believe in creationism or that giants once existed. But in this case I didn't want to patronize anyone, I just genuinely wanted to know your answer.
|If it's the former, it's because I believe the historical evidence provided in the Bible as an accurate recollection of what happened after the death and burial of Jesus. I find it personally hard to say that Jesus was a real person, but then dismiss or only accept part of what was recorded about him.|
Why do you regard the Bible as being historically accurate?
