for assuredly, I say to you that many prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.(Matthew 13:17) NKJV
If you’ve ever argued as a Christian on Twitter then you’ll know that the Bible was written by, to quote a phrase frequently used by atheist science trolls (ASTs)…
Ignorant Bronze Age goat herders who didn’t know where the sun went at night.– Atheist Science Troll
This being the case consider that the Bible contains:
The Matty’s Paradigm Harmonization
- The broad narrative of scripture
- Faith vs. sight
- Earth history
- A unified theory of everything
- A theory of first cause
- A theory of time
- A theory of gravitation
- A theory of electromagnetism
- A theory of consciousness
- A theory of redemption
- Present day
- Fulfillment of prophecy
The Bible contains the conditions necessary for nucleosynthesis and the creation of gravity in a way that predicts gravitational time dilation. These are things that Bronze Age goat herders couldn’t possibly have known.
It also contains a mechanism for the deposition of the banded iron formations at the same time that a gaseous oxygen rich atmosphere was forming; a description of where the sun goes at night; zones in the interior of the Earth consistent with seismological data; the dispersal of biodiversity that accounts for current patterns; a prediction of global warming based on the continued expansion of hell.
We’ve also combined theories of time, gravitation, electromagnetism, consciousness and redemption into a unified theory of everything.
A Unified Theory of Everything
It means that God can’t lie. It also means that the Bible is divine. God gave the truth to Bronze Age goat herders knowing full well that they wouldn’t understand it because that they didn’t need to understand it. We do. We can.
God Can’t Lie and the Bible is True
