RE: What made you certain that the Bible is a lie?
For me it is a combination of things. I don't know if I ever truly believed. Even when I was in church and sunday school, I was told to ask questions. I always liked to ask the tough questions and when the teacher had no answers, I could see the anger in their face. They would tell me they would find out the answer and then they would just hope I would forget by the following sunday. I have also read the bible from beginning to end. There is so much false info in there, it is quite absurd. I was told from a young age that the bible is the word of god, cannot be altered, and is 100% true. Then we have whole books that are "not followed anymore". I heard someone on a youtube video say that "what was true 2000 years ago, is still true today.". I see it the other way around. What has been proven to be untrue today, was also untrue 2000+ years ago. 2000 years ago, we believed the earth was flat. We know now and have known for quite some time that the earth is a sphere. According to the logic of the christians, the earth must have only become a sphere when we discovered that it was a sphere. You can always tell how truthful someone is being by how easily they become angry when you dispute them.
