My fellow conservatives/christians: Lawrence O'Donnell is indeed an offensive, ignorant tool. I loathe him on almost every level a person can loathe another. But he has a point. The Bible, for all it's positive points, has faults. I was once a bible-believing Christian. But it does contain errors of almost every kind -- historical, logical, moral.

It is obvious that togubin hasn't spent any significant time in the study of the holy scriptures. Every one I have known who started out with their superior intellect to prove the Bible and the New Testament a fraud have come face to face with the historical truth. WorldKop's post is about the consistency of the Bible written in two different languages over thousands of years. Every time I have questioned the Bible I have found out that I was wrong. All you have to do is look for the truth. Where the scriptures are concerned, historical context means everything.

togubin- actually, the bible is remarkably consistent considering it is a set of books written over hundreds of years by many different writers.

O'Donnell's rant has so many holes in it, but his tactic is genius: declare the Bible to be full of lies and distortion rooted in medieval law, then mock the idea that God could have written said text and you got yourself a impenetrable argument.

Let's say I can answer O'Donnell's claims regarding slavery and death sentences in the Bible, all he needs to do is throw up the "you can't prove the Bible is the inerrant Word of God" firewall. If O'Donnell really wanted honest answers to his Bible questions, he is only a couple clicks away from...
