Two Hillbilly teenagers enjoy a question about science in the bible

Why don’t you believe that the Bible’s scientific knowledge proves its author is God?

 

Because I don’t believe the Bible shows scientific knowledge.

It shows three things:

  • Everyday knowledge such as many people would have at the time
  • Intelligent guesses that turn out to have been right
  • Things that are not actually true that believers claim are true by special pleading.

The Bible reads exactly as the collected folk wisdom of an unscientific people. Much of it started as oral history, and all of it was written by untrained, unscientific people.

Its “scientific knowledge” can only be seen with the eye of faith which makes it, yet again, a circular argument,
