Exposing Evolution As A Mess and Atheism As Hot-Air!

Dawkins Does Not Understand Bibilical Prophecy.

with 11 comments

In the video above Dawkins is asekd what if you are wrong and displays ignorance but this goes down well with his audience.

Is it me or does  this man not know how the bible was written? Before time God promised a messiah, told us where he was going to be born (Bethlehem),  what he will do, how he will die etc. and Jesus fulfilled all those prophecies.  Now the chances of that happening are less than  one in a million because you have 365 messianic prophecies in the Old testament.

Do you see the beauty in all this?  An Atheist is betting one of this days God is and the Bible is going to do what they have not done yet, get it wrong.  Everytime God has given a prophecy, it has been fulfilled.  I think this sufficient evidence for faith but Dawkins does not understand this.

  1. My goodness, this is simply amazing. You have a book that says something will happen later on in the book and when it does, you think it’s a fulfilled prophecy. The thing, you see, is that we have no evidence the event that supposedly fulfills the prophecies ever happened. None whatsoever. You may say that the Bible is evidence of some kind but then I would have to go into an explanation of what evidence is.

    Here’s an example. I predict that the next line I type will consist solely of the the word “Frank”.

    Frank.

    There. I am as much a prophet as everyone in the old testament.

    By the way, the Bible gets things wrong all the time. Here is a partial list:

    1. There was a flood that covered the whole world.

    2. The human race was spawned from two divinely created humans in a magic garden.

    3. There is am entity that is both omnipotent and omniscient who has created us in his own image and has given us a set of rules to live by, yet if we break these rules, he punishes us forever in fire. Still, he loves us.

    I could go on. You, sir (I refer to the blogger) are the very worst kind of small-minded pedant.

  3. That doesn’t matter, because the authors of later books knew what most of the earlier ones said. Most of the authors of the New Testament books knew each other. Jesus himself surely knew much of scripture, so it would not have been that difficult for him to fake it as a “savior”.

  4. Not to mention that we can’t be entirely sure that monks didn’t make what they could have thought to be legitimate corrections when they were copying the texts and all that jazz.

    I’d just like to point out a few things on the first page of the New Testament in my copy of the Bible…

    It starts out saying that Jesus is a descendant of David and Abraham because Joseph is a descendant of David and Abraham… but Joseph’s not supposed to be the father, is he?

    And then it says “All this occurred to fulfill the Lord’s message through his prophet: Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel…” And of course, Jesus was named Jesus, not Immanuel.

    Don’t feel like delving further into the Bible today, but that’s some VERY accurate prophecy there on the first page.

    The final point I’d like to make is that one could equally say that you are demonstrating that you do not understand Quranic prophecy, or that Bobby Henderson is a prophet of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

  5. What prophecy? Have you read The God Delusion? Have you even read the Bible? The Bible is full of inconsistencies.

    Let me ask you this. What would happen to a guy who would say that he spoke to a bush on a mountain, and the bush was lit on fire? Let me answer this one. You would send him to the same place all Hitlers, Napoleons, and another dozen of Moses’.

    He was fortunate they didn’t have mental institutions back in those days.

    Sci-fi books are more coherent then the Bible. Read scriptures that never made the Bible. See how off the Bible is.

    hahaha prophecies….I predict that we will have few more wars before this century ends. (don’t forget to write this down).

    Plus, if your God would exist. Why the Bible stops….did God stop existing? why no one makes new entries and new gospels?

    Too much BS and not enough answers.

  6. Victor have you read the Old testament? This is what I am talking about, some people read the” God Delusion” and believe every lie without reading the Bible for themselves to ascertain if the claims are true.

  7. I actually read the Old Testament before I read The God Delusion. It just so happens that the first chapter I randomly flipped to when I first got my Bible was Leviticus chapter 20.

    Have you read The God Delusion with a copy of the Bible in hand, flipping to the passages he cites to make sure that they are actually there?

  8. Dawkins is an evolutionary biologist. Not a theological scholar, and it shows.

  9. I have of course read the good ol’ KJV through and few times. When I was a teenager, you and I were on the same page. I, fortunately, grew out of it.

    As to your claim regarding the different authors of the bible. You are correct, the were multiple human authors of the bible, writing quite independently of each other but well aware of and refrencing earlier texts. Later authors (the new testament authors) looked back at the old testament prophecies and made sure the mythologized life of christ fit them.

  10. Of course. I read the whole thing when I was younger and believed in Santa Clause, God, Tooth Fairy, etc.

    You don’t have to be theological scholar to interpret and understand the Bible or any other books.

    Theological scholar is just a fency name for theist.

  11. 3. The Jews would begin to regather in Israel (Isaiah 11:11-12; Ezekiel 37:21-22; 38:8; Luke 21:29-31). Over five million Jews have returned to Israel in recent times! This is unprecedented in human history. Never has a people group been dispersed for hundreds of years to every corner of the globe, and then regathered back to their homeland. Yet, God said it and He has done it before our very eyes!

    4. The nation Israel would be born in one day (Isaiah 66:8). On May 14, 1948 Israel became a nation.
    5. Bible taught in all nations Genesis 12:3–Matthew 8:5, 10

    6. Israel, once a desolate desert, would blossom in the last days and export produce to the world (Isaiah 27:6; 35:1-2; Ezekiel 36:34-36). Israel’s increased rainfall and world-renowned irrigation technology have caused the land to blossom. Incredibly, as foretold, they currently export over 800 million dollars worth of fresh produce each year, including over 200 million in flowers and ornamental plants!

    8. The last days Jews would plant forests of trees. The Bible even specifies the variety of trees, cedar, acacia, myrtle, oil, cypress, pine, and box (Isaiah 41:18-20). Since 1900 more than one billion trees have been planted in Israel! This has happened in our day after Israel lay barren for nearly two millennia. http://www.treesfortheholyland.com/

    9. A pure language would be restored (Zephaniah 3:9). At the end of the 19th century the Zionist movement brought about the revival of Hebrew as a spoken language. In 1948, Hebrew became an official tongue of the state of Israel. Originally there was only one language (Genesis 11:1) and this pure speech will be restored (Isaiah 19:18). Interestingly, Hebrew has no swear words.

    10. Jerusalem would be rebuilt on its own ruins (Jeremiah 30:18; Zechariah 12:6). Since 1948, Jerusalem has been rebuilt on the old ruins exactly as foretold.

    Jesus’ prophecy that the temple in Jerusalem would be destroyed. It was by the Roman army under General Titus in 70 CE.

    Daniel prophecied that Alexander the Great would overtake the Mede/Persian Empire.

    Daniel prophecied that the Roman Empire would overtake the Grecian Empire.

    Jeremiah prophecied that Babylon would be destroyed, never to be rebuilt. And it is still desolate today.

    Zephaniah foretold that the country of Moab would become just like Sodom, a desolate waste forever. Where is Moab? When was the last time someone claimed to be a Moabite?
