Of course if an all powerful being wrote a book it would follow there would only be one book and be dominant everywhere in the world. There would be no predecessors, or parallels or alternatives in any other language because mere human authors wouldn’t able to compete with it. You wouldn’t need faith to believe it because all evidence would point to it and it would be demonstrably true. It would contain profound morality and wisdom far beyond human contemporary capacity. It should inspire unity with every reader - if god wrote it, we should expect no less.
Unfortunately we have the very opposite of that.[/quote]
I’m not sure what about I wrote is funny to you. We should believe in things unless we have justifications for them. What other aspect of your life would you take such an enormous leap of faith?
