A) I though we had already established that neither were aligned with science
B) given the nature of the metaphysical claims, the above is irrelevant anyways
C) given the nature of metaphysical claims, nothing can actually be known because the claim of "god did it and did it so it would look like he didn't" is always valid. So we can never determine anything about reality nor discern fact from fiction.
D) We end up in a whole new argument of arguing about the bible now as some form of useful information in discerning fact from fiction and fantasy from reality despite being unable to discern reality from fantasy because of the nature of metaphysics.

There is another possibility though.
A) all metaphysical claims are bunk

Ocam's razor. The last possibility is simpler, let's just go with that.
A) Yes. But, some use science and history to bolster metaphysical claims.
B) Not if you're dealing with the metaphysical (God).
C) Yes and no. The claims also have to aligned with scripture. In this instance, that claim doesn't align with scripture (God did it to make it look like He didn't).
D) Why would anyone outside of Christianity care about what the Bible says?

A) That is an unanswerable question because there isn't proof for it or against it.

-You can't absolute stuff... you have to remain open to the possibility of anything, no matter how low that possibility is.
