Ok here it is, you don't want to validate the Bible (for some valid reasons)
What we want to validate is the truth, regardless of whether we like it or where we find it. We don't find it in the bible. What we find in the bible is a lot of reason to think that it's a work of fiction.
but yet it speaks of you.
It does? I will personally give you one million dollars for each WWGHA member who is named in scripture. (If you don't want the money for yourself, donate it to a Japan relief effort or some other worthwhile cause.) I'm talking about specifically by name, either by screen name or by actual name, not some crap like "the lost children of Israel" or something.
It speaks of future times from ancient days, and I know you find this ridiculous.
Right, because it is. Prophecy, both biblical and otherwise, is always so vague that it can be interpreted in just about any way. Watch the movie "Koyaanisqatsi" some time. It gives a bunch of prophecies from Hopi mythology that appear to be coming true, at least from the film's perspective. (That aside, though, it's a really good film, so I recommend it for that reason as well.)
You want signs, (and you will get them)
We hear this a lot. We've never been impressed.
but yet this will still not be enough to turn your hearts.
It's not our hearts we're talking about, here, it's our minds
. We're not going to accept something because it feels good or seems right to us or anything like that. We want evidence
, objective evidence that can be reviewed and analyzed by others.
Do you want to have a discussion on the merits of atheism?
Sure, we do that all the time here.
On the elevation of your discovery of no God?
That's not quite an accurate assessment of our position. We haven't "discovered no god" any more than we've "discovered no leprechauns". Leprechauns may exist, but unless and until someone gives us some evidence we can look it, we will consider the notion to be unworthy of consideration. Ditto Yahweh.
On your appetite (this is not literal)?
Literal or not, it's not pertinent.
