Just a random question that popped into my head...
Why is it when it comes to debates, it is only in religious debates that it is acceptable to use the source that you are debating as a source to support it?
Like, for example, if you are trying to prove something about the Bible most seem to only use the Bible as a source to back it up. Yet in science this would not be allowed and outside sources are needed, i.e. criticisms or supports written for the topic.

The bible is the only "source" I need. My religion is built on faith. Some may call it faulty, and say that it has holes, those people are the nonbelievers. I understand these questions and I understand the debates, I have been there too. I am a very spiritual person. I love my God and I trust His Word. There are some things in the Bible that I still have a hard time with and I really have to pray about it. For example, I have a hard time believing a homosexual is born into the darkness and God puts "blinders" on them so they keep getting deeper and deeper in sin.
