With or without these scriptural books guidance, we would have came to ask ourselves the same things the scriptures relate to.

How did we get here?
Is there a God?
Whats our purpose?

You don't need the books to answer your questions, now we have the internet.

Uh... The Bible answers those questions a lot better than Yahoo! Answers would.
Genesis I. And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them.

Yes, I think the divinely-inspired Word of God answers metaphysical questions much better than random people sitting behind a computer.

I think a divinely inspired mind could write a more comprehensible understanding, and if what they wrote was up for debate a more mutual perception of the understanding would probably occur within the discussion.

That's not how Scripture was intended. It was never meant as an argument, it was meant as an explanation.

I'm just explaining how it should be read -- not as an argument, but an explanation. The veracity of the explanation is another issue.

We don't need it, if we don't think it's necessary. But at least, if we have purpose & curiosity, where the scriptures maybe considered as solution that has relevancy to our purpose & our curiosity, then we may look into the scriptures, reasonably.

I think the spiritual books have a few purposes.

Many people need an outside authority to regulate thier behaviour because they are too scared or incapable of of the introspection and experiementation necessary to discover their own 'system' of living and applying.

To pass down and preserve life lessons and theories on life to the next generation.

To create and disseminate a common belief system to use as a basis to unify the actions of a group (management, leadership etc...).

For some it i their way of contributing to the betterment of mankind, they feel as if they are writing a gift for posterity.
