  • 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.

  • Of course there's proof!

    Let me ask you this - If a God, who created the world, who delivered the Israelites from the hand of the Egyptians, who created human beings, can't split a sea, then he's a fake. But he did split a sea. Obviously, he can! There's archaeological proof for nearly anything in the bible. In the early days of Atheism, a common deterrent to the Bible was that the Hittites didn't exist. Now, the bible referenced them multiple times, but if they didn't exist, then the bible isn't true. Well, they do exist. Just do a quick Google search! Somebody above this said that it was written by a bunch of sheep-herding nomads. I'm quite sure that, if a bunch of sheep-herding nomads survived for over 1,400 years, got a bunch of facts correct, and made a bible that doesn't contradict itself at all and doesn't make any errors, then are they sheep-herding nomads? NO! Either they're a tribe of ultra-smart human beings or they had divine inspiration. Sodom and Gomorrah DO NOT stand today. They were destroyed when the bible said they were destroyed. They have been found, sure, but they're destroyed. Abraham is said to have spawned three religions. Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Everything before that the three religions agree on. The bible has more proof for it than the other two religions combined. Many, many archaeological discoveries have been found in the past years. Once you read this, you'll probably say that there is no proof that the bible was written over such a long time period. Sorry to burst your bubble, but there is. A lot. From the 1947 discoveries of the Dead Sea Scrolls by a little boy, which proved the Bible was written over a long time period, to the Holy Roman Empire, which proves the Bible was written before 800 AD (just to counter anyone that says the Bible was written in the 1500s), there is a lot of proof. Sorry, but there's no bedtime story as epic, or as true, as the Bible. And the Bible isn't even a bedtime story! Archaeological proof? Look at the Philistine cemetery. Look at the Roman tablets dated all the way back to A.D. 52! Look at the hundreds of thousands of sculptures, drawings, and written affirmations of Christ dated in that time period. To say there is no proof is to be ignorant of proof all around. By the way, the Illiad, which all scholars agree was written by Homer, has 3 copies written in the time period in which scholars think it was written, of which there is a time difference of 800 years between the first and second copy. The Bible, however, has 15,000+ copies written in that time period, of which (at max) there is a difference of one year. There are about 10 discrepancies at most between any copy. Discrepancies include removal of a comma, misspelling of a word, or even a space too many.

  • Some of them were true, but some of them weren't

    People are saying that it's impossible for a sea to split. What they're missing is that if you have a God that exists, why can't he split a sea? People are saying that the cities stand today. They were destroyed, but they've been found. People are saying that the bible was written by a bunch of sheep-herding nomads. Why, then, is the Bible so long? Back then, in the early days of Atheism, people were talking about the Hittites, and how there is no proof that they existed. Well, we now know they did! Don't believe me? Do a quick Google search. There is actually a lot of proof for the Bible, yet people are saying there isn't. "Good" Atheists, ones who have researched this topic for decades, say that if God did exist, then all of the stuff in the Bible is true. Splitting a sea is a no-brainer. There have been many, many archaeological finds in the past years that prove, again and again, that the bible is true. A common trend I've seen from the people that said "NO" is there is no proof, and the Bible is a collection of bedtime stories. There is proof the Bible has been written over thousands of years, from the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls by a boy in 1947 to the entire Holy Roman Empire, there is a lot of proof. I rest my case.

  • Noah's ark found!

    There are many archaeological facts supporting the accounts found in the Bible. The best I've found so far is from this website link-
    and there are many other artifacts found including evidence of the Red Sea crossing ( Submerged chariot wheels), the stone where the Bible states the Moses struck and water poured out, Sodom and Gomorrah, and more.

  • 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.
