top 10 theories about who really wrote the bible
I love when the news actually posts something factual, instead of gooing over whatever shoe one of the kardashian sluts wears...

Here are the top ten theories of who actually wrote the bible. None of these are news to me as I obsess about this and use it as a hammer to smash creationists with, but nice to see it on yahoo news Smile

Thanks. This is a keeper. It's one of my pet peeves as well though I haven't done the in depth studying you have. I'm re-reading the Bible Unearthed as I had a lot going on when I first read it last year and not much sank in. I've read several Bart Ehrman books and when I get around to it I'll read further information on who wrote the bible.

It's a very human book and far more interesting because it wasn't written by who they say wrote it.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Interesting that the comments don't actually dispute the evidence but just rail about how evil atheists are for trying to take away their security blanket.

All pretty much common knowledge. There was no Moses, so he absolutely could not have written anything. The DH is common knowledge, (it's been "adjusted" some, but it stands, as is everything else they list). There are some more complex origin theories for Deuteronomy of late, but it's a completely different "thing" than what precedes it. The analysis of dialect and vocabulary use (and change) is getting to be very advanced, and specific, so they know more and more about location and dating than anyone ever thought possible. The answer to why there are conflicting things in Paul is, there were at least 2 people writing under that name. Lining up their conflicting statements is one easy way to demonstrate deeply disparate philosophies.

Don't read the comments. Too many fucking morons out there.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

Yup, nice to see it on the main news area of yahoo for once, educating the public is hard to do when the news happily splashes the latest pro jesus story across the top, but typically buries any contradicting information, unless of course if they seek to light up their forums and cause server crash by posting stuff like this Smile

So true. Look at this (!) : http://www.salon.com/2014/09/01/5_reason...r_existed/

I was a bit suprised to see this, in a way. Of course the fundies are having a field day with it, and the comments reflect the same-ole same-ole. But at least this topic is no longer just dismissed as "wacko". Was thinking we should start a thread here about it, (maybe it's been done to death ??? ) but I have some new thoughts, now that I know more of the history of the time, (turn of the millenium).

We can call it "The Dog that Didn't Bark". Tongue
