I can understand man rounding down the value of pi, for example, but to get the entire creation story wrong is a bit of a stretch.
Likewise, given that God is all powerful, he surely would not have left an obviously inaccurate account of his greatest work go to press, or was that just another sign of his fallibility?
Seeing as we know the only source that defines the Christian God is inaccurate, and at least part of the definition is inaccurate (infallible), we can not trust the remainder of the definition.
Science has proven that the earth is closer to 4.5 billion years old.In fact, depending on how much evidence you consider to be acceptable, and how you define us as a species, you could place humans at between 1.8 million and 130,000 years old.No one could sensibly claim that humans are 130,000 years old. God decided that the earth needed cleansing, so he instructed Noah to gather up two of ever species to save.The Bible is the only place that defines God, and God is defined as being infallible.The Bible is also stated as being of God’s word (albeit written by man, see below).To add a touch of justification to this, let’s break it down.We know the Bible is inaccurate, in fact the Bible is contradictory within its own pages.There is simply too much evidence available for our inspection. Everything other than Noah, his family (or part of his family) and the animals he chose to save would be killed.There are around 10 MILLION known species of animal on our planet.He then, after the waters had receded, would have had to return them to their original locations.You also have to question to environment on board Noah’s Ark, an environment that could sustain animals that require intense heat and animals that require intense cold, as well as Noah and his family that required a more moderate climate. Just so we’re clear, I’m establishing that that the Bible is inaccurate. There are more examples of course, some which make it clear that the author of the Bible thinks the world is flat, some which make it clear that the author thought the world did not move and then there are more considered examples, such as the value of pi being unknown at the time (surely God would have known it!?! So this is my statement, logically derived from the above.
