I think this website has to be concerned with reading the Bible and other religious texts correctly
I have shown, and you seemed to agree, that you have a problem reading the Bible. I've read 14 versions of the Bible, how about you? I've also have read the Qu'ran, The Book of Mormon, and other religious texts concerning varying religions.
Your problem with us is: most of us actually have read the Bible, other books in concern to the Bible, and other religions. Christians have been coming here for years and the consensus, and you fit this bill, they have either never read the Bible or they have and only their interpretation is correct.
Take Lukvance, and skeptic as good examples. Old Church Guy seems to be one of the few who actually doesn't solely rely on his own interpretation.
because the WWGHA argument would otherwise be a straw man if it misattributed certain beliefs about God to people who don't actually believe that.
So, only a person like yourself knows anything about the Bible? An atheist couldn't know because they are an atheist? We've heard that before, too.
By the way: many of us here are former Christians. I am a former Southern Baptist, and a former member of the Southern Baptist Convention (through a former family church).
Therefore the Bible at least to that extent is evidence. It is the source/foundation of people's operating beliefs.
Now you're trying to put that circle in the square since the Bible is evidence of the people who believe in it: it must be true. That's nonsense. By your logic, any book must be true if it had an effect on their lives.
I'll agree I can't prove the Bible with the Bible but I can give insight into what a lot of theists believe by using the Bible.
Irrelevant. I can do the same with pornography: what does that prove? Nothing, therefore: irrelevant.
The other member asked a question to theists and I clarified what I, and theist, thinks. If you don't listen and try to understand then all you are doing is beating the straw man.
You desperately need to go back to Oz, and I'm not speaking about Australia. What you said is nonsense. The only theist you can show any sense of understanding of is yourself because every single theist in concern to the Bible interpret it to their viewpoint.
