Did you ever take a philosophy class?Unbelievable that you can't see your 2 sentences there contradict each other. You've let other people tell you what to do. You HAVE been forced to believe via the subtle coercion of religious indoctrination. You can't consider yourself a free-thinker if you start from the unfounded principle that everything in the Bible must be true having been told to do that by other humans. If you're going to be free then you start from the principle of actually appraising whether something is true or not based on evidence
Unfounded principle that everything in the Bible is true.
No, sound belief based on evidence from work!
Unlike you, that had not done the work, only parroting what others have told you to believe.
No one has ever told me everything in the Bible is true therefore I believe everything in the Bible is true. Why would I believe someone just because they say so?
That goes against what I already said, that I verify my beliefs based on my own study, my own work not on others. Do you have trouble with comprehension?
What is ridiculous is you parroting the same ignorant claims I have heard by every skeptic I have debated with.You can't use the Bible to prove that the Bible is correct. That's ridiculous. That's like saying Harry Potter exists because the Harry Potter books say he does.
You are a copy of the societal beliefs of today. Nothing authentic about you.
The stupid circular reasoning argument giving by skeptics.
You cannot prove the Bible with the Bible for that would be circular reasoning.
No, no, its not.
To prove you don't understand the things you say,
Look at the court system.
If the subject(Bible) cannot prove itself,
Then the accused guilty party cannot defend himself as innocent.
That would be according to you circular reasoning.
The person guilty is allowed to stand trial on his own behalf because it is not circular reasoning. His own testimony is EVIDENCE to determine the truth.
Just as the Bible can stand on it's own and defend its self as to give it's own evidence to prove it is true.
Harry Potter never claimed to be true, it is fiction.
The Bible has many authors that all testify to the truthfulness of its claims.
It is multiple books written over long periods of time that one author will be proven true by a later author who verifies the prophecy takes place.
The Bible is an accurate historical document.
Every skeptic that has tried to say it is not historically accurate has been proven wrong.
Just as I can prove myself innocent by testifying of myself, so can the Bible.
It would be helpful for you to learn what circular reasoning means before you go making arguments about things you do not understand.
