According to the study of Archaeology many Biblical events apparently did not occur. The Exodus out of Egypt for example has no evidence supporting it as actually having happened. This is very troubling. Some claim that the Egyptians wiped the record from existence out of embarrassment. While possible, this is not evidence.
While some parts of the Bible have been confirmed, others have been refuted. Doesn’t this cause the entire book to crumble if one part of it can be shown to be false? I think it does. Why trust miraculous claims if the basic history cannot be trusted?
The Bible continues to fail basic testing. It continues to be something that can only be believed after much effort is taken to twist and re-interpret it over and over. Just like what Biologos does with evolution and Genesis. Will there come a time when it must simply be abandoned as myth? It is sure far easier to wave it away as such. Anything can be rationalised and defended. With the effort theologians put into making the Bible believable, they could just as easily convince the World that Vampires could exist.
Is no one else bothered by this realization?
