Just asking.


Because no one could make up hundreds of stories over many centuries written by numerous writers and intertwine those stories in such a way as to bring one, unified, consistent message to mankind.

As stated many times in this thread: There is no book in the whole world like the bible.

You make it sound as if everyone here echoes this opinion of yours....when the reality is that you alone are the one who keeps saying this about the bible.

Every religion has its "holy book"...and all of them are "unique", in their own way. Of course...you also keep on saying that no other holy book claims to contain the "Word of God"...which is a mistake on your part. But I forgive you...because I know that you are not well versed in the "heretical" religions.

I get that that. But the question is "is that your only argument?"
