None whatsoever.

The Bible is a collection of almost 40 different books, written over a time period of 2000 years, ranging in subject matter from ancient Hebrew mythology to early Christian propaganda, and chock full of self-contradiction and paradox.

It is a miracle that so many people have any faith in it at all as a source of factual information.

I know; that's why I made this; I wanted to see what reasons people would give.

Protip: your conclusion doesn't follow from your premises.

Okay fine.
The major basis of biblical literalism is that the Bible is God's Word, and since God is a perfect being, his words wouldn't be self-contradictory or paradoxical.

Only us saints can understand the difference between the religious lies by religious Jews and Romans ( antichrists ) and the original writings of the prophets and saints. Christians easily believe in the religious lies in the Bible because they can't understand the symbolic prophecies.
