    I'm agnostic. I doubt all of it. There is not a poll option for that.

    Damn, perhaps the A/C area has something going for it after all.

    There is no scientific evidence that much of any of it is literal, with the exceptions of some actual Roman emperors mentioned in the new testament and use of real places. The whole creation thing is rubbish.

    Also, there is no option for "No fucking Way".

    I'm sorry, I don't speak gibberish. Can you translate this sentence into English?





    If God can do anything, can He get out of his own RNC?




    Nice Christian attitude there dude.





    I think you need less Bible study and more English grammar dude.
    You missed the ENTIRE POINT of my post. Nice try though. Read for sarcasm next time.

    Thankfully I live in America, where I can (mostly) ignore it. And give the Jehovah's witnesses the finger when they bother me at 8 AM on Saturday mornings.

    I'll step up and admit I voted for literal. (And a hearty "**** You" to Feedback and everyone else that made comments like him. I mean that. **** all y'all.) In truth, though, I voted that as it more closely matches my beliefs than the other choice. It is far too simplistic to say (even as a believer) that the Bible is literal. It has parable, poetry, prophetic imagery, and metaphor as well as history, and even that is only "literal" in the context of the times and culture in which it was written.

    As an aside, this thread displays the usual lack of understanding about Christianity, textual criticism of the Bible and Biblicla history that appears in religion threads on bullshido. For example...
    The virgin birth was probably a translation mistake.
    Whether the VB is true or not, do you have any, you know, evidence that the Biblical claim is based on a translation error?
