I know you're probably frustrated because there are obviously many more than 439 contradictions in the Bible, but I find that this list offers a decent number to get us started. If you want to add another contradiction, erroneous statements, or other story errors from the Bible, feel free to.

Be sure to zoom in, so that you can see the verses themselves: http://www.project-reason.org...

Yep, that's what happens when five people account the same event in five different books. A good number of accounts can be reconciled by using alternative Hebrew definitions, simplifying otherwise false dichotomies or noting that some individuals go by two names (Peter vs Simon, for example). Nevertheless, some things like the two directly opposed genealogies of Mary from David in the Gospels are plain contradictions.

Theologians have come up with solutions (some reasonable, others farfetched) for almost two millennia now but when taken at first reading these are obvious contradictions.

I was laughing at a list largely composed of differences in Hebrew methods and idioms, then acting as if someone would want to add more.

Lol. Let's count the contradictions in the contradictions that are claimed.

I know, of the parts of list I read I noticed about 2/5 to be erroneous but some contradictions do exist. One famous example being the genealogies of Joseph (*correction, I said Mary before). There are explanations but most are non-nonsensical. If that's not a contradiction, what is?

Make me a list of contradictions that exist that aren't contradictions because of an interpretation problem, or a translation/transliteration problem. Then take out contradictions that don't affect doctrine, because they are unimportant, and likely just one person's perspective of something versus another's perspective.

Show me another work of this magnitude, that covers the issues that the Bible does. Consider that the Bible was written over the course of approximately 1500 years, on 3 different continents, by dozens of different authors who by today's standards were far from having an education with any kind of scientific knowledge. Are you surprised to find some difficulties within such a work??

Now, consider that such a work contained no difficulties. Imagine that it was perfectly flawless and not even skeptics could find a problem with it. Wouldn't that then be the skeptics reason for questioning it?? "It's too perfect, there is no way that dozens of uneducated people conspired on a book, over 1500 years in the making, and didn't make a single mistake", would then be their complaint.

Danged if ya do, danged if ya don't.

@Mircosuck, If you got time after these two brush you off and I finish some things. We can go at it again. Since, you have 1001 of them, you can choose any you like.

That's kind of the point. (1) There are people who take everything the Bible says as true so even transliteration problems or differing perspective concerning specific events completely disprove such a position, and (2) one point of the list is to make it a point to those who think that this book is really divinely inspired by *real* revelations then we'd probably see at least some semblance of coherence.

Now, consider that such a work contained no difficulties. Imagine that it was perfectly flawless and not even skeptics could find a problem with it. Wouldn't that then be the skeptics reason for questioning it?? "It's too perfect, there is no way that dozens of uneducated people conspired on a book, over 1500 years in the making, and didn't make a single mistake", would then be their complaint.

Danged if ya do, danged if ya don't.

I don't know if any atheists would actually say that so it's a bit of an unsupported presupposition on your part. But let me go on record and say that if the Bible really had no logical contradictions, conformed perfectly to reality, and if no one in the thousands of years since these stories were written had found a single problem with any proposition or doctrine found therein, that I would accept it as at least probably true (not fully since I have some epistemic difficulties myself to deal with).

I used to have great study habits. Now it seems I only have great study habits about things that I'm not tested on. I like researching topics that I will address in my career, not memorization tasks that I couldn't care less about. Ya know?
