|Gee, it seems that I already debunked FL's claim that evolution is incompatible with Christianity by showing that one may believe in God and Jesus and not be blind followers of everything the Bible says as literally true. Why? Because the Bible was written by fallible, sinful men, not any God, and it would be insulting God Himself to claim otherwise.|
Well, let's see Dale. First, you've just denied the operation of the providence of God in the making of the Scriptures.
And this is a problem for you? Maybe you just need to grow up.
Second, your particular argument attacking the reliability of the Scriptures, is just as quickly applicable to the Gospels as well as Genesis, and is just as severe an attack on the historical claims of the Cross of Christ as well as the Creation.
Only if you assume that if the records of Jesus' life are not totally accurate, then the entire record is worthless. Rather, a little critical thinking would debunk those parts that are false and discover those that are true, resulting in a more accurate record about Jesus.
So you haven't reconciled anything between evolution and Christianity by your specific argument there. Instead, you've denied an important biblical attribute of God, and ALSO succeeded in employing a skeptic-argument that actualy attacks Christianity itself, not just Creation. Good job!
But you can still beleive in God and Jesus without beleiving blasphemous absurdities about the Bible, FL.
If you need a man-made book to beleive in a God who is said to have created the universe, of what value is your faith? You might as well worship an idol.
