The Bible is true because it can be explained by science. We just aren't that advanced at the moment
Debate Rounds (3)
I also believe that it's of man's ignorance and pride, we have pushed God aside. We appear to advancing so well with technology that we feel as though we no longer need a 'Creator' or a 'God' to tell us what to do and how to live. This is understandable. Being made in God's image and all, I do not think that humans are stupid. I do think that if people were to put their minds together, they can achieve... but I think the knowledge is then limited...
So I will be arguing that the Bible is true by using the 'supernatural' happenings and the things that Bible said that have only been recently discovered. I might touch on a bit of history; our civilization- it's past and future but I will not be arguing about morals, good/evil, sin or anything of that sort.
My first point:
If this story is found as being true, would that not qualify the others as being more likely to be, if not completely?
Consider the story of 'The walls of Jericho' in Joshua 6. (Ai)
I have found a video if you are unable to read the story. It's not the best but it will do. If you don't want to watch the whole video, please just watch from 4:00. (Aii)
So let's establish first whether it's true or not.
It's fair to assume that the people + technology back then would have 'primitive' when compared to the technology we have today. Their walking about the walls of Jericho was seen as a miracle but any scientist would know that the phenomenon was resonance.
Accompanied by the stamping of feet, the sound waves created by the instruments and vocal chords caused the very atoms in the wall to vibrate, gaining more energy. This increase in oscillations would cause the material of the wall to become unstable and eventually fall down like the story goes.
What happened is much like what is taking place in the video a wine glass breaking with sound.
A more famous example would be Tacoma Narrows bridge that collapsed in 1940, Nov 7.
What made them walk about the great walls? It seemed so irrational. The logical thing would have been to at least try and damage the walls or shoot for the enemy. What gave them that insight? If resonance was only found out a few decades ago, there's no way people thousands of years old could have known about it. This story in particular would have seemed ludicrous before the discovery of resonance.
Using science, I can conclude that the story did take because it has something in it that has been explained and observed. The story must be true because I'm sure it would be pretty difficult to fabricate a story and then put in a phenomenon that you weren't even aware existed.
So if that is true, how many more things are there in the Bible that simple omit simple because we cannot explain yet?
