Is the bible a reliable and accurate source of information regarding the history of life and the earth.Posted by: SamStevens
The bible is not reliable. Scientific evidence that is tested and peer reviewed shows that the earth is not 6000+/- years old, that we weren't created but that we share an ancestor with chimps, and that life evolved over its 3.5 billion year old span. There is no evidence for a great flood nor do snakes possess vocal cords.
It is a reliable source because it is god's word. We were created in his image and looking at human nature shows this, we are unique in the fact that we don't rely on instinct and that we have morals. The bible also stood the test of time being around for about 3500 years. It is also true that a talking snake tricked Adam&eve into eating a fruit and that the great flood really happened since the bible describes it happening.
