The Bible is hands down more credible then Darwin's books of theories. Now I'm not saying that Charles' books are not good for observing the difference in species of birds and how they have adapted to certain areas with specific beaks for an example. But if you are looking at historically accurate The Bible hands down wins the fact race, as being that so many pieces of the Bible have been confirmed in other writing from ancient Rome of which have 100% guaranteed the historical accuracy. Now it also depends on what version of the bible you read as well, between Catholic and most Protestant churches the Catholics add the Apocrypha books whereas Protestants believe that isn't part of the Word of God. I've studied both Darwin's Theories and The Bible and from sure fact, I have to say that the Bible is more credible then Darwin's theories.

I accept.

What *specific* arguments do you raise for the credibility of the Bible?

What *specific* arguments do you raise against the credibility of Darwin's evolution-related books?

Pro has forfeited Round 2, but has not yet fulfilled their BOP.

To nominally fulfill my BOP:

Many Biblical prophecies have not been fulfilled [1]. Hence, the Bible is untrustworthy.

The thread was talking about the validity of the Bible and asked if it would be even to Darwins Theories, and based on the historical accuracy of the Bible I and a number of my Colleagues have come to the conclusion that the Bible is a very reputable source.

So, you are NOT arguing evolution, you are arguing the reliability of the bible, right?

And yes every ancient Roman Script that has been found agrees with what the bible has said, Bible is a very reputable source. I personally don't agree with the Roman Catholic version of the bible because it adds stuff that ins't actually the Word of God. So Ragnar pulling specific pieces out of the text, isnt exactly accurate, please keep everything in context.

This is suppose to be linked to a thread not entirely a different discussion within itself.

What exactly are you debating? The story of creation vs. evolution? That the bible is historically accurate? What exactly?
