How the Bible was "rewritten" is probably a topic for another thread all by itself
Funny how one can have "fits" about how the Bible was "re-written" and is therefore not to be believed but yet they will believe what is in those "re-written school textbooks
Fits? This is a debate. There's a certain humbleness to scientific knowledge since they're willing to admit when they're wrong. Textbooks need
to add new found information and correct the old things. They need
to be rewritten in order to further peoples knowledge on subjects. Would you be against rewriting medical science journals if a new bacteria was discovered? That's the point of doing it.
Religious ideology works different- if anything is proven to be rewritten or false, the foundation completely collapses and the followers have nothing to go by since it's so ancient. Most are not willing to accept that course.
even after knowing God and any reference to Him was removed from them (talk about tampering with evidence!!)
There is no evidence of any gods (especially defined deities) anywhere (unless it's a cheap appeal to emotion), so it is completely wrong to assert a spiritual belief system in a book that teaches about the scientific world. And christianity is still taught in public schools. It's just taught with all of the other beliefs so students can wrap their heads around them and get a feel for what the world is like. Nothing is asserted as true. They just get an aerial viewpoint, which I think is great.
Jesus ALWAYS spoke the truth. Jesus was human. No human is PERFECT---Jesus WAS.
To stick around the desert and simply be the 'talk of the town' is far from perfect considering there's a whole world
he could have preached to. That would have definitely given him some ample proof of his existence and perfection, right? Instead, you just have followers blabbering around the world about this magical dude and none of them seem to get their stories straight. That's hardly a perfect plan. His story has holes and steals from a lot
from other myths-- it's a very imperfect mythical quest pattern I may add.
they can't find where Jesus told one single, simple lie? I think that makes Him pretty trustworthy
I bet you that if this protagonist was real and was living out his quest today, the media could show it in a heartbeat. But realistically I don't use the word "trustworthy" with ancient writings with so many plot holes within the story. :-
