  • There is no evidence that the big bang theory happened.

    Where did that nothing, that created the earth and everything in it, originate then? Let me know when you've create something out of nothing and then tell me that the Bible isn't true.
    Evidence that the Bible is true: The Earth and everything in it! Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth." GOD is the one who created that "nothing" into the Earth.

  • Yes, Religion is built on faith

    I believe that god does not exist scientifically, but he is made of the faith and hope from the humans who praise him. if we believe in these stories, there is a higher power behind there making, while if we don't believe in them its up to us to determine whether or not they actually happened.

  • Ultimately, yes, but I'm sure not quite as written...

    I believe that the stories in the Bible were ultimately based on real events, but, I believe they also changed over time, as they were handed down, told and retold, and so on. Minor events may have been exaggerated into major miracles, and the overall story might have been changed around to better match the overall religious message the story was trying to tell. Yet, I think there is still a kernel of truth to most of them.

  • Yes, but the variations depend on your beliefs

    The stories of the bible did happen but what exactly did happen depend on your beliefs. Some people believe in Christianity and others in Catholicism, yet other have still other beliefs. There is a higher power that is explained in the bible and those stories have been shared for years. It just depends on your beliefs.

  • Most of them did

    You have to take genre into account. For example, the story Jesus told about the ten virgins didn't really happen, but then Jesus didn't intend for anybody to think they did. That was a parable. It could be that the whole book of Job is a parable, which case it didn't actually happen. But some things recorded in the Bible definitely happened. The kingdom of Israel WAS split in half between Judah and Israel. The northern kingdom of Israel WAS defeated by the Assyrians and scattered. The first temple was destroyed by the Babylonians, and the Jews were sent into exile. The Persians did defeat the Babylonians, and the Jews were allowed to go back. And they did rebuild the Temple. Etc. etc. These are all historical facts.

  • Yes and No

    Events in the bible did not happen exactly as written. For example, the creation story likely did not happen exactly as written. However, the meaning (that god created the universe) is true. Some stories in the bible are not meant literally, but rather are meant to teach. Some are matters of belief. For example, do you believe Jesus rose up on the third day? They cannot be proved, and cannot be known for sure, but must be believed in.

  • History and myths have been tangled together to create religions therefore making the events of the bible exaggerations of true occurrences.

    Look at the ancient greeks, for example. Achilles, one of their most prized heroes in greek mythology, was an actual soldier. His life was shrouded in myths of nymphs and magical rivers but when you strip him of that you get the true story of Achilles. That is what the bible is. It is the history of a people recorded in the form of how their theoretic God touched their lives. Some elements of the story are purely imaginative reworked versions of the truth but underneath the layer of mysticism is pure, simple fact.

    Allow me to demonstrate. Let us take the famous story of Ishmael, Abraham's eldest son, born of his wife's handmaiden, Hagar. In case you do not know the story, Isaac and Hagar were banished from Abraham's camp because his wife, Sarah, did not want her son Isaac to have to share his inheritance with Ishmael. The story says that Ishmael began to die of dehydration when the two were banished in the desert. Hagar left and ran away, not wanting to watch her son's inevitable death. Then an angel spoke to Hagar and told her that the Lord would provide. At her heels the angel brought water from the ground. Hagar used this water to save her son from his fate. Let's peel away the myth to find the fact. The angels voice is the myth. The water sprouting from her heels is not. How is it possible then? My answer is Hagar was purely lucky. In the desert there are certain places where, when the right amount of pressure is applied, water will spring from a sort of underground pocket of it. I propose that Hagar stumbled upon one of these pockets. While she ran, the pressure of her feet was enough to draw water from the ground and she created a small well of water with which she gave Ishmael enough to drink that he lived. She was a lucky woman, in the right place at the right time. Science even supports the idea that this is the true nature of the biblical story. Hagar, being religious and having no understanding of the actual scientific occurrence must have concluded that it happened through the aid of an angel. The event did happen, making the contents of the bible true, but it has evolved into stories of magic over many, many years.

  • Logic

    You believe in Noah's ark? Moses splitting the Red Sea? The creation of life only thousand of years ago? Come on. It has been proven that life is 3.5 billion years old. There is no evidence for Noah's ark, and we should all know by now that no one can take a sea and split it.

  • Of course not.

    There is little more to support these fairy-tales than the wishful thinking of those who are unlearned in science and history. Adam and Eve, Noah's ark, etc. are cute bedtime stories, but ones that should no more be taught as actually true than Jack and Beanstalk or Humpty Dumpty. As far as I'm concerned, they all have an equal amount of evidence supporting them: none.

  • NO

    Proof? You need proof to support the bible and everything it contains inside it. Science has proven that evolution exist, what has the bible done to prove itself? Nothing, I haven't seen this so called "God" do much to stop the wars that's been happening the last couple of centuries.

  • No, they're just silly little stories!

    Let's use Noah's Ark as an example: Some old guy finds out the world is going to flood, so he builds a boat for his family and 2 of every animal on earth.
    FLAWS: 1. Noah built a boat likely the size of an entire city by himself in 1-2 weeks. It's easy to see why this is impossible. 2. The world flooded because everyone except for Noah, the animals, and his family were sinners. So, newborn babies were sinners? All Christians were sinners? 3. TWO OF EVERY SINGLE ANIMAL IN EXISTANCE, AND THE FOOD, WATER AND SUPPLIES TO CARE FOR THEM. I rest my case, crackhead Christians

  • This Can Not Exist

    Are these real life stories? It just can't be. It is unrealistic and does not sound like an actual historical event. So, why does the bible (or Catholic bibles I believe in) teach all this fake and silly collection of myths and lies? Can we find out the real origin of man?

  • God wrote them to learn from

    God had the bible written to be learned from to worship him, not to be taken as a history book.
    The only reason why you would need to read these things literally is if your faith in God isn't strong enough to look at the bible with a discerning eye.

  • Think about who wrote it.

    Who wrote it? Probably a group of goat or sheep herding nomads. These nomads were afraid of everything. Storms, the sun, basically everything they couldn't explain. People back then knew so little that it was frightening to them, and they needed a way to explain it all. The Bible is not the only example; there are thousands of myths, legends, and stories written by other ancient civilizations that attempt to explain the world. Today, little has changed. People are still afraid, even though they know more. They are afraid of their fates and the seek out security by relying on strong, all-knowing figures like God and Jesus. That's perfectly fine, but it's important to recognize this and decide if that's the kind of life you want to lead.

  • There is no proof that bible is true and it has no supportive proof

    There is absolutely NO proof that If no god or gods exist then so what? Let's assume that life on Earth is unique throughout the entire universe, as much of the evidence to date indicates. That doesn't mean that we are forsaken and that world-anarchy will eminently ensue. In fact nothing changes, except for the centuries old burden of incorrect beliefs and hatred amongst differing races is removed in an instant. We can still adhere to the laws of the land and the moral codes taught to us by our parents. We could learn to have greater respect for planet Earth and all of its life and not just human life. We could learn to live with people from all races and not immediately hating and wanting to kill someone just because they believe in a different god.

  • Where is the Proof?

    There is absolutely NO proof in modern science that supports any of the miracles that were every recorded in the bible. Sodom and Gomorra? They still stand today. The burden of proof falls on you christians and other religious factions. Not on the Atheists. I rest my completely vlid case.
