Debate on the Bible (NOT religious)

  1. Jul 16, 2008 #1
    If we accept as real the Judeo-Christian God and that Christ was his divine son (I do not actually believe this, but just for the sake of argument), then how important should the Bible be?

    THis seems pretty religious to me.

    But, before this thread is closed:
    Insofar as you believe that the stories told in the Bible is true, and the moral messages within it correct, then you'd pretty much say that the Bible is a necessary manual for life.

    I don't think it's religious at all since we're not debating the truth or falsehood of any religion. This debate isn't about religion any more than euclidean geometry is about the parallel postulate, as I mentioned in that link.

    Well, you won't get euclidean geometry without regarding the parallell postulate as valid, so your analogy, or parallell, is rather skewed..

    I am afraid from looking at your other conversation that this type of discussion violates our religious posts rule.
