At the end of last year I traveled to Mississippi and of course I had to stay in many hotels. I decided to read the bible which is something I had never done. I read the first two pages of genesis and noticed a contradicting statement. I then guessed that there were probably many flaws in the bible that people simply ignore and that someone could write a book about it. Then tonight I ran across this work called "101 contradictions in the bible and realised that someone had already done this. Has anyone else read this? I was rather amazed at how cut and try the statements were when they contradicted each other. I also have to ask how someone can believe so strongly in a book that is obviously flawed. If you do believe in the bible then I wonder do you simply choose parts to believe and not believe?? If you don't then your contradicting yourself. I don't know i'm very tired and a bit aggrivated at the ignorance in the world but this ignorance has nothing to do with the topic at hand. I am also posting on another forum and the people there are far less "bright"

There is a thread in here that has all 101.

I answered them, however many here believe that I did not.

You can also see that many arent "contradictions" to begin with.

Why tiptoe quietly through life just to arrive safely at death?

I have the e-book but I did actually look many of them up and I found that some are not contradictions but then again alot of them are. My original questions still stand.

Does that mean that you believe all of it as the word of God?

No it only has 101 of the 339 contradictions in the Bible.

I would like to take a stab at those, but it would take forever. I would have to do them little by little.

I believe the words of Jesus are the "words of God."

I also have to ask how someone can believe so strongly in a book that is obviously flawed.

probably most christians are ignorant of these supposed contradictions. others probably dont care. others will try to find a decent explanation for a supposed contradiction.

Zandore, you were correct. The creation was the contradiction within the first two pages of genesis. Thanks for for the welcome by the way. I was getting at the point that if you believe the bible to be created through men by the all knowing why does it have flaws. If you believe the bible word for word then you have contradicting beliefs that you have left unanswered within yourself.
