You dont have to open the bible to see its a lie
I see so many atheist debating the contents of the bible. But do we really have to open it to see its bull. No we don't. Why, because of the basic questions anyone would ask about any book that might come across your desk.
1. What kind of book is it?
2. Why was it written?
3. Who wrote it?
There are many more but we only need the first one.
To believers it is the absolute truth and not subject to any change. To me, a person who has never been introduced to any religion other then personal academic curiosity, its is any odd concept in itself. I mean, I have been told to read a lot of books, but never has a biology teacher dropped a book on my desk and said this is the absolute truth, and is never subject to change. If a teacher told me this, I would instantly know they were full of crap and a liar. To me this is the most damming peace of evidence against most religions.
I would also like to note that not all religions make absolute claims. For example Tibetan Buddhism does not.
Well, when I talk to religious leaders, one thing I always ask them is: What would you do if a fundamental tenet of your religion was definitively disproved by science? And, at least in the West, and especially among fundamentalist religions, the tendency is to say, "Science couldn't possibly," or, "My religion is an absolute truth, and if science gets different answers, too bad for science." The Dalai Lama's answer was: "If science found a serious error in Tibetan Buddhism, of course we would change Tibetan Buddhism." So I tried to push him on this issue. Suppose it was something basic? Suppose, for instance, it was reincarnation? And the Dalai Lama said to me, "If science can disprove reincarnation, Tibetan Buddhism would abandon reincarnation." And then he said, "But it's going to be mighty hard to disprove reincarnation."
