Most likely, with the same justification the Quran was inspired by Allah.

Right... So, you have this proof that the Quran IS inspired from God? More proof than the bible?

- I figure you wouldn't give me even a mildly convincing answer. I'll await the response of someone who actually believe in the faith to justify his belief.

I think, more or less, they believe in it because, on some level, they can either relate to it or find some meaning from it. From what I've seen, people who aim to "prove" the divine validity of the bible tend to use the bible as a basis, and then try to find specific events/ data that correspond with the biblical account.

I don't really care that you run away from the only answer available, all theists do.

- Since you're not a believer, why don't provide reasons to disprove the inspiration?

- I reckon this is true. A book couldn't have this much sway on many souls if it couldn't be related to.

From what I've seen, people who aim to "prove" the divine validity of the bible tend to use the bible as a basis, and then try to find specific events/ data that correspond with the biblical account.

- You mean like abductive reasoning, checking if the hypothesis (the Bible) corresponds to the facts (reality)?

Not at all, it's the only option a theist has when presented with truth.

You haven't provided any evidence to even claim your book and the bible are inspired by god.

I am afraid I'm not Christian, but I believe that the inspiration of the Bible was ultimately from God. That is, Jesus was a Messenger of God, and His teachings inspired the Bible.

Is this what you mean when you say "inspiration of the Bible from God"? Or do you mean something else?
