Anyone, let me know your favorite pet peeve contradiction.  Glad to help.

Luke 3:23–38 vs  Matthew 1:1–17

good luck and don't forget to back up your assertions. Claims without supporting evidence will result in further humiliation.

What's true is already so. Owning up to it does not make it worse.

Question.  We have stories of Zeus, and Odin, and Horus.  Tales of gods other than Yahweh that differ in the specifics.  Should we follow your logic and say that, although those tellers differ in the details, the underlying fact - that there are pantheons of gods other than Yahweh - therefore MUST be true?


Question repeated in case Skywriting missed it.
Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.
Why is it so hard for believers to answer a direct question?

I like this reflexion. Why I think that this is a good reflexion ? I think that because we can't deny the reality of contradictions.

There are no contradictions.  Just the same truth told from different perspectives.
If there was only one "book" or one author for the scriptures it would be harder
to understand the intent of any passage.  But they all tie together seamlessly.
