None of us know for certain the Bible is 100%, we weren't there.
People tend to say something is real cuz its written in the Bible.... even if it sounds farfetched or has no grounding or hardcore evidence to support it, yet similar tales told in any other fantasy or scifi novel are easily accepted as pure entertainment and imaginary.
What makes "Its in the Bible" all ya have to say? Do you have to be thoroughly entrenched in your faith or a bit brainwashed, stubborn, closeminded or something...no offense btw, I just don't understand how some words in a book thats been translated many times over 20 centuries and has been picked apart so many different ways is considered anymore credible than any other book of stories you'd find at a bookstore or library.

missionarywifey ... You know very well that phrase means 'something that is popular right now- a FAD' and that's exaclty what your beliefs are whether you agree or not. You don't think the ancients had just as much faith that their gods were real and that their religions would last for eternity? Same thing applies here. If you think the biblical religion is the oldest and the only one to have existed for thousands of years, you need to take your butt to the nearest college and enroll in an ancient civilization/religion class pronto.
Also, saying you believe god is real because he said so is like me saying I am the Queen of England because I said so- it doesn't make it true and it sounds ridiculous.

THe bible is a manipulated book used to control the minds of the convinced, with the fear of a God who knows everything we dont. Everyone knows God helped mankind write a book! I just want to know why he decided thats all ppl needed to know. I mean if you are going to instruct the making of a book, why not include important facts about the world; like How deep is the ocean? Where/ when did trees originate?Why do Ancient Egyptians have pictures of domesticated dinosaurs?What is the earths core like? Why did he STOP instructing ppl/prophets to continue writting?
