At its peak, it was one of the best shows on all of television.
Few bother to read and understand what is written in the Bible or think critically about what Christian doctrine implies. Each point listed below presents a claim for questioning the authenticity of Christianity.
In total, they lay out a convincing case that Christianity is untrue. In Christianity, we see none of these elements.
This strongly implies that Christianity is a myth and possesses no intrinsic truth. Gary Shadle is a theist who volunteered to construct a rebuttal to each of the listed reasons. This effort began on October 1, If there is something I have overlooked that you think should be on the list, please submit it and I will consider adding it.

The task force convened on and off from to Other findings of the group included: As such, it remains the best effort to date to ascertain the true historical Jesus, stripped of the myths that have been attached to him over the centuries.
Although many religious leaders objected to the findings, it must be acknowledged that the level of effort, the range of resources used, and the qualifications of the reviewers lend much weight to their conclusions. The following quote is taken from John W.
The Bible is filled with superstitious beliefs that modern people rightly reject. It describes a world where a snake and a donkey communicated with human beings in a human language, where people could reach upward of years old, where a woman instantaneously transformed into a pillar of salt, where a pillar of fire could lead people by night, and where the sun stopped moving across the sky or could even back up.
This world is populated by demons that can wreak havoc on Earth and make people very sick. It is a world of idol worship, where human and animal sacrifices please God. Visions, inspired dreams, prophetic utterances, miracle workers, magicians, diviners, and sorcerers also populate this world.
This is a strange world when compared to our world, but Christians believe that this world was real in the past. My contention is not that ancient people were stupid, but that they were very superstitious.
As Christopher Hitchens puts it: Religion comes from the period of human prehistory where nobody had the smallest idea what was going on. It comes from the bawling and fearful infancy of our species, and is a babyish attempt to meet our inescapable demand for knowledge.
And finally it is a world where God feels that he must kill his own son because he can find no other way to forgive people of their sins. It should take only a few moments of reflection to understand, to grasp, to figure this whole thing out, that the god of Christianity is to adults as Santa Claus is to children- an imaginary friend.
Here are three of the forty-five Gospel scriptures where Jesus mentions Hell: And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

What colour was he? Where in the Bible can I find out? APE-MAN? Man, apes and monkeys: what are the differences?. Modern Western culture often tends to stereotype Warriors and Poets as belonging to distinct, different and opposing groups (Elves vs. Dwarves + Sensitive Guy and Manly Man).Warriors are manly men who like hitting each other and other simple pleasures.
Where did the human races come from? See this page in: Dutch. A ccording to the Bible, all humans on Earth today are descended from Noah and his wife, his three sons and their wives, How is it that many different skin colors can arise in a short time?
Remember, whenever we speak of different “colors” we are referring to different shades. Finally the Bible says: “And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the Ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth and of them was the whole earth overspread” (Genesis , 19). Now although the Scriptures do not mention races, they do have a great deal to say about nations and languages.
Question: "What is the origin of the different races?" Answer: The Bible does not explicitly give us the origin of the different “races” or skin colors in humanity. In actuality, there is only one race—the human race.
Within the human race is diversity in skin color and other physical characteristics.
