Facts and Fiction of the Bible:
The Bible ‘book’ = a compendium of fire side tales and fables, recounted orally, for generations by goat herders and primitive tribes from the stone age, until writing was invented, and then, many different sources, transliterations, and versions were copied and written down..
”The Bible was created during a time where stories were verbally passed down over hundreds of years. Stories constantly morphed and changed over time, and the Bible is a collection of these.
This is why it has the nearly identical flood story from Gilgamesh, and why Jesus has the same characteristics as Dionysus, Osiris, Horus, Mithra, and Krishna.
The contradictions and immorality in the stories are not evidence that God is flawed or evil, but rather that humans invented him, just like the thousands of other gods that we used to, but no longer believe in.
..and to answer the questions of the many fears and mysteries of our universe, like ‘thunder’ and earthquakes, since there was no science yet. That was the old Testament….
The new Testes is also hearsay since these letters, ‘gospels’ and stories were written by the loyal faithful, the camp followers, not by objective historians at that particular time, or by any contemporary writers, and these tales were written many years after the supposed events of this mythical Jesus.
There is essentially very little evidence of a Jesus in real documented history. A couple of spurious Roman reports, and all the rest anecdotal …but more importantly …a Jesus’ existence is not an issue! A Jesus is irrelevant without a god !
Then, many of these stories, but not all, as many were not chosen, [ There are more than just four Gospels but only these four were agreed on ], were compiled for one self-absorbed converted Roman Emperor in his Nicean Council, for his expressed purpose of conquest and
control of the people of Europe for his Holy Roman Empire.
He recognised that this was the perfect religion/mythology for the future domination of the populaces. Half of the stories were ignored by the Nicean Bishops and none have been proven to be based on fact. This ‘Bable’ book is backed up by absolutely no facts and no evidence.
It is not proof for any god(s) ….(or of any jesus as a god…)
The fables are intertwined within historical places and people… eg Egypt and the Pharaohs existed, whereas Moses and the Exodus did not happen…!
It is a historical novel …. ie A book of fiction…. Only!
The Bible book is proof of a book … ONLY (certainly not evidence of any gods…)
PROVE a god!
Right on the money! Well done!
