How The Bible Keeps “Predicting” Things

Christians believe The Bible predicts a bunch of things.  I’m yet to see any convincing predictions.  Surely God could have made at least a couple crystal clear ones that couldn’t be called into question?

For comparison, let’s look at a modern example of a prophetic work that people believe in:  The Simpsons.  Take a look to see how these ideas relate next time you are looking at Bible prophecy.  Also, look into “self-fulfilling prophecy” – that is a concept that was completely ignored when Bible prophecy was talked about at the church I attended.  It is when prophecies come true because people want them to come true and work for them to come true.

Difficult Questions for Atheists? Part 2: Something from Nothing

Many Christians seem to have a hard time understanding viewpoints outside of their Biblical narrative. Hopefully this post is helpful in sparking some sort of understanding.

Finding Truth

You can find part 1 here.

As I said in the last post, my friend UnkleE gave me a series of questions recently that he believes present difficult problems for an atheist’s worldview. I had forgotten, but we’ve actually had similar discussions before, and you can find them here, here, and here (thanks for the reminder, Howie).

Anyway, this time around, one of the questions UnkleE asked was this:

How did something arise out of nothing? (Or how can a series of events have no start?)
