so youre saying the bible doesnt textualy make historical sense? like as if it were a book, when you read a book, do you take everything literally, or do you need to be contextualist when reading and put what was happening back then into perspective?

I'm saying it doesn't make any sense what so ever. Many took this nonsense as literal, we later learned such things couldn't possible happen and they changed gears saying that non sense was just metaphor.

Though another problem arises in that there is no clear line between what's suppose to be taken as metaphor and what's suppose to be taken literally. As it stands we could easily say God is nothing more then a metaphor.

You're doing it wrong. That is not how to argue.

What Mage is doing right is that unlike most people, he's providing sources and (for the most part) explaining how that link applies to his argument. If you want to reject that, at least explain why.

Anybody ever heard of H.L. Mencken's "Treatise on the Gods"? Some of you may get a kick out of it. It's a rather cynical piece about how "God" may have come to be on its most basic level:

Severely truncated, imagine a cave man about to drown from a rainstorm. As a last, desperate, animal instinct, he strikes at that which is about to kill him, and beats at the rising waters with a stick, shrieking madly as he sees his end coming. Shortly after, the rain storm stops, the waters recede, and the cave man survives. He looks at the stick, and finds "divine providence." The cave man's family sees him strike back the waters and calls him their saviour. Guess who just got his own religion? It's quite a fun read, if a bit wordy.

Oddly enough, I choose to believe in a God out there, because the alternative is an eternity of oblivion, and that sounds rather spooky. Call me a pragmatist.

Maybe it's your version of the Bible that left out dragons, mine clearly had them included.

Dude there are different versions of the bible, many different.. yours just appears to have no dragions mentioned, mine happened to have them mentioned. I'm not stupid, I know what I read. I believe that is true for you too, and I'm ok with that. Just be a bit more open and think of this possibility, ok?

yes god exist

Not helping. Go get some proof, until then please be quiet

The New Revised Standard Version has replaced the word dragon with
serpent/crocodile in most cases, but I'm sure we'd like to see the originals


Maybe you missed that part of Mage's link

You really need to stop acting like the first four letters of your name. You also fail for seemingly not realizing there are many versions of the Bible, especially when the link I provided make mention of this.

Maybe you missed that part of Mage's link


In some cases the word is also replaced with the word jackals.

Something to keep in mind is the word serpent and the word dragon were interchangeable in Hebrew.
http://strongsnumbers.com/hebrew/8577.htm

This is based on the belief that a lizard or serpent never stopped growing and if allowed to live for hundreds of years would eventually turn into a dragon.
