Default What do you do

If you don't believe in the bible or god or Christianity and then proof of what is in the bible is discovered and scientifically proven.

I know that every six months or so someone makes this claim, but what happens if or when science verifies what is written in the bible.

This has already happened with the discovery or what was called a giant species of man. The bible tells of giants as far back as Genesis, so when scientists discover the same thing the bible already says existed doesn't that give credibility to the bible as being accurate.

anyway i think it is pretty much impossible to get all those animals/insects/all living things in pairs on a boat, make sure they dont eat each etc. Oh wait I should have guessed that God would have cast a magic spell to make them get on and behaive themselves. I mean shit a lion wants to eat a gazell right? Did god say oh well the lion can just eat rainbows untill the flood was over?

The bible talks about a lot of things that can be proven to be historically accurate, that doesn't mean that everything in it is.

Some people think the book of Ezekiel describes space aliens coming to earth.

Also, The Sun isn't exactly a credible news source.

I believe that yes, it should be credible and accurate as to what the bible says if scientifically proven to be accurate. According to the material found it was dated to be around the time of the flood(4800 years). Christians would believe it but nonbelievers would rule it out and make up one thing or another as to not give credit were credit is due.
It reminds me of the story of Lazerus and the rich man in the bible. wanting to return to his brothers and warn them that hell is real and they need to be told. Jesus told him that they would still not believe. God has given us enough evidence to see Him in everything we do and see. Some will see it and others will not see or believe.

this is another article from the Sun, today: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage...-in-shops.html

Aber, so you trust the dating on this (4800 years) but not anything that shows that something is older than 10,000 years?

I don't know that many educated people refute what the bible says from a historical perspective, at least not all of it. What is disputed is that it is "inspired" writing, inspired by God and therefore entirely accurate. That has been proven incorrect time after time yet people still believe in it. What I think most readers need to keep in mind is that there is a generation (at least) between what was written and the events depicted. Furthermore, the Catholic church decided which of the scrolls were actually included in the bible and VERY few have access to the excluded texts which could directly contradict what was accepted.

My problem with the Bible is that we change it every decade or more so that it reflects our society's beliefs. Slavery was a common topic of early American bibles. All of the major characters had them in the old testament. Today's bibles talk about "servants" and "hands". By 2020 gays will no longer be excluded from the ranks of Christians.

Did you really mean to source The Sun magazine? Don't they claim to have pictures of Oprah's gay alien baby?

So, the dating process used to date this at 4800 years is correct. But anything dated at 6001 years and older, its wrong?

I stand corrected on the Sun's value as a scientific resource.

Heres another article that solidifies the Sun's reputation for serious jounalism.

Science only has value if it lines up perfectly with the bible.

Fossilized bones are nothing more than minerals that filled odd shaped cracks in the earth and hardend. The fact that many of the bones can be repeatedly assembled into animal like structures is mearly a coincidence.
