    Of course. And murder & child abuse being wrong are only opinions. Any morality & any notions of freedom & human rights are all only opinions.

    Again, what does that have to do with errors in the Bible?

    I'm saying that opinions are not the same as errors. If the Bible says that women are inferior, that's not an "error in the Bible". It's an opinion that is not as popular as it used to be.

    Yeah, that Firmament idea is a joke and embarrassing for Bible freaks.

    Some say it is the atmosphere and claim that God was clever and kind to provide us with an atmosphere.

    Once again they underestimate their God.

    Apparently, all things are possible with God.

    God could have made us live in a vacuum if he wished.

    Is there an atmosphere in Heaven ?

    Are you saying that God has opinions that have changed ?
    That sounds like a big old error to me !

    Well, no, I didn't say anything like that. I said what you quoted.

    I didn't say anything about "God's opinions". Do you think the opinions in the Bible are God's opinions?

    Of course the God in the Bible stories does change his mind pretty often. Why would that be an error?

    The bible claims it is the word of god. The bible claims god does not change.

    Does it? Chapter and verse?

    It shows him changing his mind. Is that the same as his nature changing?

    A scientist might not change his routine at all, yet his routine might involve wiping out an experiment and resetting it.

    Thus, 'doing something different' and 'not changing' are not mutually exclusive.



    For the sake of argument:

    The act of giving mankind free will is a deliberate attempt to set things in motion that are not directly in God's control.
    And if the experiment goes awry, there's no reason why he wouldn't wipe it out and start again.

    All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
    2 Timothy 3:16-17

    Where does it say that "all scripture" is the Bible?
