Which, when considered rationally, calls the whole mess into question and makes it all unreliable unless you have a reliable way to discriminate. Of course, since even writings done for "honest reasons" may not be true so it isn't enough to determine the intentions of the writer. The claims must be matched against reality.

Not all are things that I would agree are actually contradictions but many are. It's what I'd expect from books written over a long time by different people with different agendas. It is not what I'd expect from writings with a single source providing guidance.


I wouldn't expect it to affect your faith (which is not a proper noun no matter how often you capitalize it) since you believe because of your personal psychosis.
Why yah gotta go callin people crazy? I wanted the ones you personally thought where discrepancies, not a link.

As far as the writings matching up; someone mentioned that the writings span 3 continents 40 writers, and 66 books and that they have the same message.

It goes much further than that though. The writings of all faithful seem to be pretty similar, not just the writings in the bible, and not just the writings of the abrahamic religions.

Faith in selfless Unity for Good.

All the writings of everyone, "faithful" of whatever jargon nondescript manner that is supposed to mean, or anyone else writing of most any style are pretty similar. Because we are all of the same species and of a mindset to the things there are basically just 7 essential conflicts all storytelling is rehashing in the same manners which different placesettings and focuses here or there.

But yes, morality tales have generally read like the same moralities plays in history since the early animalistic stories to the depictions of gods throwing other beings into volcanos.

Bigfoot/Sasquatch/Yeti/Yowie/Almas/skunk Ape/Grassman/Wendigo/Orange Pendeck/Mapingauri/Yeren have been written about, and witnessed for many years WORLDWIDE. It MUST exist then, right?

2,000 years from now whatever form of human exists then will inevitably find all of these mentions of bigfoot worldwide, and will certainly exclaim "Bigfoot" existed! He must have, look at the copious amount of worldwide documentation of him. Rolleyes

I call you crazy because based on your posts I sincerely believe that you have some serious issues and need professional help.

I have no interest in discussing various contradictions with you. I was only explaining the "two fathers" reference that you asked about. Given that you cherry-pick what you read and don't actually appear to comprehend much of it anyway there is no way to have any sort of productive discussion.

Go read some from those links; they don't have a consistent message at all except when read with god goggles on so that you skin over all the stuff you can't explain and come up with inane interpretations of other parts to make it sound the way you want. The scriptures are a mess from start to finish.

Yes, you've said that before. Your ability to see only what you want to see and ignore what disagrees is legendary. You need help Pops. Get some.
