I told you I was always a doubter. I used to sit there on Sunday mornings and wonder if certain people in the congregation felt the way I did.
Get serious for a minute. You're the one who's amazed that I doubt some 2000 year old story from the stone age which declares virgin birth, walking on water, water into fine wine, resurrection etc. You're amazed that I doubt that there's some invisible man in the sky who dropped by once during ancient times and left the only keys to the kingdom in the hands of people who thought the earth was flat and the universe revolved around it. I'm very sure that if there's anything after death...which I strongly doubt, that all of us will get an equal shot at it and not just those who believe a story about virgin birth, son of god, savior of the world, crucifixion, resurrection etc. The first time that story was told was about 3000 years before Jesus' time and it's gone around that part of the world ever since.
There's one way to prove the bible...by reading the bible. Thomas Jefferson was so sure it was a fairy tale that he wrote his own version of the new testament leaving out the ridiculous and the miracles.
