When you go by and to the bible for answers - the source, applied by you, for the God you believe in - you are confronted with too many dicrepancies; too many contradictions.

So, in order to maintain your cherished beliefs, you have to bypass those discrepancies and contradictions. This usually amounts to 'pick and choose' (trying to have a cake and eat it too), in effect creating one's own version of an already established belief system (including dos and don'ts, musts and musn'ts) one chooses to adhere to, somehow, some way.

 

Resistance to evidence which exposes or threatens a person's philosophy is well known to behavioural science. We do not give up 'our' convictions easily - we fear to have them challenged. We find it very difficult to accept evidence when it is opposed to 'our' basic beliefs.

This process is quite extensively documented by behavioural science, it's called <strong>Cognitive Dissonance</strong>.

- I typed 'our' because that what we like to call "our" in this respect is actually someone else's we have adapted as "ours".

it is not what we (think we) know that matters, it is what we can show true that does
after all, truth is demonstrably fact and fact is demonstrably true - everything else ... mere conjecture-

However, if you choose not to add a because to your contentions, you're not saying much other than posing opinion, which is thus noted for what it is.

You're welcome.

don't think so

but yet you would still be able to speak because you learned it from those in your enviroment:

the BIBLE is the letter of what PEOPLE EXPERIENCED before they wrote it down

just like a person speaks before he learns how to read and write the language he is speaking


everything YOU THINK YOU KNOW about reasoning is taught to you


the only PURE REASONING is based on PURE experience


and the writers of the BIBLE had this PURE experience

the rest of them read about it and preach it as something OTHERS SHOULD HAVE


but the truth is, UNTIL ONE experiences what is written in the Bible for themselves, they will just think it is 'manmade garbage'


if MAN really created the God of the Bible, the ONE that MAN can't NOT come to a concensus to or understand without the same EXPERIENCE the writers had, then why did MAN create such A STRANGE GOD???



seems to me man creates things to make life easier and not more difficult


every day is a new day to die to the old and live to the newness of life

None of the above actually addresses what it is in response to.........

as the maxim demands; truth is demonstrably fact and fact is demonstrably true
everything else ... mere BS -

but thats not what I say

prove me wrong?

I answered you without the Bible and you still can't hear me;

maybe you don't understand certain "concepts" or reasoning that you have no frame of reference for
