Evidences and Facts


In reading various blogs related to discussions between believers and non-believers, I find it rather puzzling that the former take it for granted that the latter accepts the credibility of the Bible. Again and again, as questionable matters arise, Christians will reference scripture to “prove” their point. Occasionally, a believer will reference a noted apologist who supports the matter under discussion, but essentially it is the words of the Bible that are the determining factor.

As an example, I lifted the following from a discussion related to the existence of the person Jesus. (Interestingly, the blog visitor preceded his comment by saying: “I’m about evidences and facts.”)

What you need to understand is it is very clear in the Bible that hundreds of people saw Jesus and people touched his wounds and saw him up close. It is one thing to have a person act as a double to trick the masses for a cruel trick on humanity it is completely another thing to have someone go up to Jesus and see his wounds and touch them. Jesus was making it very clear with no doubt to all the witnesses he was indeed Jesus Christ.

So the natural question that pops into my mind as I read this is what “evidences and facts” does this person have that “hundreds of people” saw Jesus? How does this person know that “Jesus was making it very clear” that he “was indeed Jesus Christ”? Indeed, what “evidences and facts” does this person have that it wasn’t someone acting as a “double to trick the masses?”

Oh Wait! Could it be? Ahhh yes. As the person noted, “it is very clear in the Bible”!

Do believers not understand that atheists do not accept the validity of the Bible? Do they not realize that atheists reject the existence of gods in any size, shape, or form? Do they think it’s all a façade and that in reality, atheists (deep down in their hearts) truly believe the Bible God exists?

It would seem so.

I can only surmise that they put their faith in the BIBLE scripture that says …

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12; ESV)

And thus, they continue to reference the contents of this several thousand year old book written by nebulous individuals … certain that it has the force to “pierce the soul” of the Non-Believing Atheist.

“It’s true, the Force of the Jedi Bible — all of it, it’s all true.”

  1. Again, this is why I’m a devout Muslim for in the Quran it states, “This book is NOT to be doubted!” I mean, MIC DROP, BABY!!!! What more evidence is needed. How much more proof can there be. It says right IN the book that it’s not to be doubted! Thus, Islam is the only true religion and Allah the one true god. After all, it says so RIGHT IN THE BOOK!!! $Allahu Akbar$

  2. Dear Nan,

    Hear me sing, “Jesus loves me, this I know, for the bible tells me so.” (evil snicker) I don’t get it.

    No god = no Jesus Christ = no word of god or scriptural inspiration = delusional rantings by people who do not understand the word “no.”

    You ask, “Do believers not understand that atheists do not accept the validity of the Bible?” They do not.

    God is like the first domino. When it falls, everything that follows becomes moot and fails. Except this, it’s all they have.

    So it is really not a belief in a god that members of all Abrahamic religions have, it’s blind faith in scripture. And they provide all the evidence of that. We don’t make it up. Fact.

  3. I delved into the holey scripture for years. I was so proud of my ignorance I wanted to share it with the world.

    Christian researchers have access to thousands of books, interpretations of scripture, opinions, alternate languages, well-written thesis, translations, drawings and paintings, apologists, bible readings and study guides. But no facts.

        • No, there is no actual written version for centuries after it all happened. Stories told around the family gatherings, campfires and any other place people met. And even now there are many interpretations of the same bible that I don’t know what to believe. Even the Catholic bible has several versions, depending on what company did the printing. The stories are all closely related, but again, too many people take phrases out of context and interpret them wrong. Example: “An eye for an eye” seems to always be taken out of context with the rest of the phrase omitted – – “Vengeance is Mine, says the Lord!”

  4. Nan, here is an excerpt from the survey from 2014 by the Pew Research Center US Religious Landscape.

    “While about four-in-ten Christians (39%) say the Bible’s text is the word of God and should be taken literally, 36% say it should not be interpreted literally or express another or no opinion. A separate 18% of Christians view the Bible as a book written by men, not God.”

    To me, religious texts, even if divinely inspired, were written, edited, translated, retranslated almost entirely by “imperfect men.” The gospels in the Christian bible were written between 30 and 75 years after Jesus was crucified, based on stories that were told after his death. They also were not all written in the same languages, so there are some inconsistencies.

    I think we should focus on the overarching messages of religious text such as the various permutations of the Golden Rule of treating others like you want to be treated or treating your neighbors well in times of need.

    But, what the above survey shows is only 39% of Christians believe the bible should be taken as the word of God.

  5. This is an annoyance I deal with regularly. Yes, believers would like to point to scripture as proof, to which I explain that “scripture is your claim, not your evidence. You’re trying to prove to me that scripture is true, it can not be your proof as well.” They do not get it at all, I believe because it’s always been used as “evidence” by those indoctrinating them into the fold. It’s incredibly annoying to me.

    I usually throw in the fact that I could use “The Origin of Species” to prove that evolution is true and they will inevitably argue the point.

  7. Nan, I have just a quick short comment about this Christian infallibility non-sense. 😉

    In response to the ill-founded presupposition by that “E & F” Christian 😄, s/he and thousands of other blind-faith Christians of the world intentionally refuse to examine the independent evidence & facts of their Greco-Roman blind-faith compared and contrasted to Late Second Temple Judaism & Messianism easily found in Zugot (170 BCE–30 CE) & Tannaim (10-220 CE) Literature, i.e. the direct, precise context Yeshua bar Yosef (Jesus) was born in, raised in, educated in, fought to reform along with thousands of other Jews and rabbis, then was executed for by the Romans. Hence, this begs the elementary question: Was Yeshua/Jesus a Jew in that time-period?

    Of course he was. No Christian can deny that FACT. Period. Therefore, if someone REALLY wants to know who this rabbi-reformer named Yeshua was… you have no choice but to start with his Jewishness. How many modern Christians know primary or secondary facts about 1st-century CE Sectarian Judaism/Messianism of Syro-Palestine in the Late Second Temple Period? It is miniscule, and I’m being generous with that. How many Christians even consult Jewish scholars of the Tannaim literature and culture today? HAH! 😄

    Furthermore, outside of Yeshua’s deeply steeped Jewishness a FACT not equitably found in the decades-late canonical Gospels—nor what little there is isn’t accurate or comprehensive at all—what are or where is the independent evidence of this Greco-Roman “Son of God” messiah? I share what MOST historical scholars of the 1st-century Levant already know and have known for many decades (a century?). From my own Why Christianity Will Always Fail page:

    There are at least 41 known Pagan and Jewish authors/historians during Jesus’ lifetime or within less-than 100 years of his life that aside from two forged passages in the works of a Jewish author (Josephus), and two disputed passages in the works of Roman writers (Pliny the Younger & Suetonius), there is no mention of a Jesus Christ. Nor within a century of Jesus’ life do any of these authors/historians make any mention of the later disciples or apostles.

    The “version” of Christendom’s story and history the last 2-millenia is NOT supported by any plausible “evidence or facts.” But the vast majority of Christians today only allow or defend their faith in a Kangaroo Court where the jury and judge will only gaze or reference ONE source, ONE dependent and highly biased source: their Greco-Roman canonical New Testament.

  8. The reality is that there are almost no believers that accept all parts of the Bible. They pick and choose passages that resonate with their own life choices. What’s more, the Bible is full of contradictory passages. This makes the claim “it must be true because it’s in the Bible” even more absurd.

Re “What you need to understand is it is very clear in the Bible that hundreds of people saw Jesus and people touched his wounds and saw him up close.” This should be stated that “What you need to understand is it is very clear that the Bible claims that hundreds of people saw Jesus and people touched his wounds and saw him up close.”

    Then, we can go from there by asking “How would the Romans feel about someone they executed walking around drawing crowds? The Romans had spies, lots of them. This would have been reported. The Romans would have figured “That bastard Joseph of Arimathea tricked us.” then scooped Jesus up a second time and nailed him up for good. This would have taken only an hour or so from Jesus drawing a crowd.

    That the Bible makes claims is not miraculous. actually, it is not the Bible, it is the authors of the books one is quote from. What was his name again, I forget. Oh, you don’t know who wrote it or when it was written, so you have no way of knowing whether the writer had a hidden agenda, now do you? Hmm. I wonder how many people actually wrote for publication. It is clear that the priests in the OT times inserted some of there own ideas into scripture so that they sounded as if they were God endorsed (Both Jesus and the prophet Ezekiel said so, or claimed to have said so in the Bible.). Do you think that could have happened in the NT as well? Gee, if we only knew something about the writers.

  13. Nan: “I find it rather puzzling that the former take it for granted that the latter accepts the credibility of the Bible.” I find it rather puzzling that it is taken for granted that heaven exists. Without heaven gods cannot exist and the Bible is just a Jew/Jesus fable. GROG


      • The Jews have a God who resides in a celestial kingdom. What do you mean the Jews don’t believe in heaven? All religions Depend on the supernatural, without magic the faithful have nothing. GROG.


        • No, the orthodox Jews do not believe in heaven. They believe the dead go down to “Sheol” (an underground “pit,” known as the “Land of Forgetfulness.”) They are cut off from God and humankind. There is no concept of judgment or reward and punishment attached to Sheol.

          While they do believe in a Supreme Being, they are not fixed on the idea that “he” lives in a “celestial kingdom.” They lean more towards a god whose presence is everywhere.

          It is the CHRISTIANS that altered the perception of “God” — primarily based on the Zoroastrian religion — and as you wrote (and I agree), they are the ones that heavily “depend on the supernatural.”

        • Interesting. IMO, this guy definitely has an outlook that’s a bit “far-out.” 🤪

          One other thing — yes, the Jews as a whole DO have a wide range of beliefs. But note that I was referencing the orthodox Jews and their beliefs as presented in the bible. Modern-day Jews are not so unlike Christians with all their different perspectives/beliefs/activities.


        • Jews have a number of different afterlife beliefs. Some believe in a heaven and hell where you go based on merit. Some believe in a heaven and hell, but hell is temporary and you go to heaven after purging your “impurities.” Some believe in a bodily resurrection. Some believe in a combination of these things. Some think that when you die that’s it, you’re worm food.

          Judaism never put as much focus on eschatology (the part of theology concerned with death, judgment, and the final destiny of the soul and of humankind) as Christianity.

          According to Pew Religious Landscape: 40% of Jews believe in heaven, while 22% believe in hell. This is in comparison to about 80% or higher belief in heaven among Christians and 60% or higher belief in hell for all types of Christians.

          Also talking about Orthodox Jews in Biblical times is a misnomer. Orthodox Jews might themselves claim they are continuing normative traditions that stem all the way back to ancient times, but they are just as much a product of the 19th century as Reform Judaism.


          Nan seems to be talking about ancient Israelite beliefs that transformed into Judaism over time. Otherwise her points about Sheol in ancient Israelite beliefs match with my understanding.

          You are correct. I was referencing what is laid out in the bible as related to the Jewish perspective on death. You are also correct that, just as with Christians, there are numerous outlooks on what happens at death among modern Jews.

          For me, this is just one more indication that the entire idea of “religion” is simply whatever one wants it to be … which, IMO, totally undercuts its validity.

The odds of man writing 668 prophecies (sometimes 100’s of years later, and all of them coming true, without the help of God, has a probability of 10 to the 38th power- (1 in 100 billion, billion, billion, billion)..

As Nan pointed out, using the Bible to prove the Bible is as ridiculous as anything I can think of; perhaps using the TV show “Ancient Aliens” to prove the existence of aliens? Using the Quran to prove the Quran?

          But tell me something because I am interested: how is it that you are “saved” by god’s “grace” (whatever that is) but thousands of children die of cancer every year, their parents in absolute agony that THIER prayers aren’t being answered? Why do 2,000,000 (yes, TWO MILLION) innocent children die of starvation every single year while god is, what, twittling his thumbs? And this is ok with you? You’re perfectly fine with a god standing by and doing nothing while innocent children die? This to me is a repugnant aspect of religion. I’m sure you’ll find some quote in your scripture that explains it to your satisfaction but you should consider it.

          Lastly, as a demonstration of your ignorance regarding your own faith, you might be interested to know that the KJV and even the N(R)KJV is probably the least accurate re-write of older gospels? It has been interpolated with all kinds of nonsense at the discretion and order of King James himself in order to accord with the views of the Anglican Church.

          You really need to educate yourself about the so-called faith with which you seem so content in deluding yourself. As I pointed out before delusion is a game the whole family can play; ghosts, aliens, etc. However to invest so much of yourself in something about which you seem to know very little is futile.

    Nan, if you understood how God and the Holy Spirit worked, you would understand that non-believers are drawn in by God (John 6:44) And when they are drawn in and are presented the gospel of Christ, it is called the effectual call by God, meaning it’s effective because God doesn’t lose anyone Effectually called…

      The part you’re missing Bruce is the part where all of us “lost souls” have already reviewed all of the big man’s literature and have found it wonting. Many of us were born and bred into the fold and somehow, either in a search for truth or god, or just by luck perhaps, ending up finding “a” truth at least; that it doesn’t work. Your “truth” doesn’t stand up to scrutiny and as a result we’ve let it go and have been content that life is just as beautiful, just as mysterious and full of wonder without a god.

  18. I have been an Atheist for a long time. I was six years old when I started doubting what I was being taught in Sunday school by my Catechism teacher. Most of my family members are Catholic. When I was ten years old, I was supposed to do my first communion. I told my mom that I did not want to go through with it because I was uncertain about the validity of religion. Thankfully, I have a very open-minded mother and she allowed me to opt out of going to church. My father was furious, but I couldn’t follow a deity, which in my opinion, caused so much pain and death. How is God able to “create” the world and everything in it, but he is incapable of stopping wars, famine, child rape, or rape in general, homicides, and more? When people ask me why I became an Atheist, my response is: “I read the bible.” Anyone who reads that book with an open mind will realize it was written by men to control the masses.

You’re correct, largely because they have no idea of what is written in their dogma. I often lament how people can put so much faith in something they seemingly know so little – sometimes almost nothing – about? People like us wouldn’t do that; substance means something to us. It’s cognitive dissonance at it’s worst.

  19. On my way to work this morning, my favorite radio station host was talking about a priest, who has done hundreds of baptisms for the Catholic church. Apparently, several baptisms are now void because he used the wrong word. I think he was supposed to say, “I baptize you, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. I think (if I am not mistaken) he said, “we” instead of “I.” So, just because of that mishap, those baptisms are not valid. I find the whole thing ridiculous, but of course, believers are worried that if they died now, they wouldn’t go to heaven. So, what about all those he baptized and have died? They are in hell? As an Atheist, of course I don’t believe in heaven or hell, but these people are worried. Shouldn’t they have faith that their god will still get them into heaven if they are good? I just can’t believe the attention this was getting. As if we didn’t have more important things in the world to worry about.

    So, in the words of the late great biblical Wossisname, “Truth? What is truth?”?

    I search for my own Truths.
    Truths that satisfy me, and I don’t give a damn for the opinions of others—can an expert in The Holey Bible convince me of his truths by virtue of all the certificates he has plastered all over his office/den/study/shed? Parts of that book, I’m told, are demonstrably true. But then, so it is with Ms Enid Blyton’s “Hurrah For Little Noddy” (book); sadly, though hollows under trees can be found with not too much effort—goblins parking stolen cars in those hollows is stretching things a bit far. Goblins, angels, Toytown, Kingdom of Heaven, saints, miracles … all cheering fiction perhaps, but scarcely Reality.
