Well consider this.

While not evidence it certainly qualifies as one of the most wonderous works known to humankind.

The Bible was written over the course of around 1400 years with about 40+ authors contributing to it. Most of these authors wrote their own piece on their own with no knowledge of what the other were writing or had written.

And yet this book fits together seamlessly with zero faults in its story.

One guy didn't say Jesus died on the cross and another predicted he would live forever and rule the world, no, their stories all intermingle exactly.

That in itself is an impossible feat.

I mean we have all played that game where you sit in a circle and tell something to the person next to you and it goes around the circle and by the time it gets to the last person its a completely different thing.

Now try doing that over more than 14 centuries and getting as accurate as the Bible.

Some would say only a God like being could pull that off.

How could some of the writers in the Old Testament possibly have predicted that Jesus would arise, and how could some predict he would die the way He did?

In fact, science itself says that until something can be proven wrong that it should remain a possibility so you would be going against the scientific method by outright dismissing God.

Is the Talmud consider a wonderous work ?
What about the Koran ?
What about all the Hindus writings ?
What about all religious works the world over ?

The bible is full of falsehoods.

I don't know why folks find this objectionable, but it's the truth.
Every religion the world over is man made.
Mormon is just the latest example.
Is religion innate or learned? No matter the tribe and from which century, they all had/have an religion, even the lost tribes in the Amazon. So who taught them?

The simplest way to explain mankind is with a god who created everything. To keep slaves from killing their masters god makes it a mortal sin to kill another human, it also helps keep them from stealing from the masters because that is a sin.
Now in the year 01 what names were there for people? I doubt it would be mathew mark luke or john as they came about in the 1000's. Also who created this god fella?

The earliest religions were animalistic.
That is easy to accept. You could say they worshipped Mother Nature but I doubt they had classes or congregation.
No God above nessasary.
We know now no god was nessasary for man to be created, just as no god above was nesasay for the three waves of life before us. Did Dinosuars need a god ?
Man created god.
This is why we have differant religions across the world.
Writing did not begin with religious writing but as arithmetic in its earliest form for trading

Of course it is. The lazier, yet quicker elements of a tribe made themselves into a priestly class by inventing religions in order to sponge off the rest of the tribe.

Transpose this phenomenon into nations.
