Here is a short list shortcomings I have seen if any one cares to mend the gaps please be my guest. I will number each point so if care enlighten me you may reference the numbers.

1) book of genesis god takes a rib from adam and makes eve. leaving men a rib short. this is totally not true. men and woman have 12 sets of ribs.


2)book of genesis adam and eve have two sons. Cane and Abel. cain kills abel. seth is born. this all makes sense but this is where it loses me, seth and cain take wives............... huh what wives???? enoch and enosh... take wives too???? huh irad and kenen...take wives???? I think you see where I am headed with this. even if there was some biased against woman back then it doesn't change the fact that that supposedly the only people in existence were adam and eve and they didn't have a daughter. and also was there already a biased against females this early on or was this biased belonging to a writer many years later.


3) who kept record of this??? do really think adam and eve and their direct descendants knew how to write. I would gather no.


4) Sodom and Gomorrah: lot offered his virgin daughters up to the men who wished to have sex with the male visitors. is avoiding a sin by committing a sin what this trying to teach us?


5) noah and the flooding of the entire world. this is not possible. the amount of water on the planet earth doesn't change. it may freeze it may evaporate but it doesn't go any where and it doesn't come from anywhere. so for the amount of water to increase so drastically to flood all of the land is incomprehensible. also there is not scientific evidence of this. if the water level on the earth had risen above all of the land it would be evident. and supposedly all of the water rained down from the sky. this story seems to me like it came from someone who didn't understand that heaven wasn't past the clouds no?


I will stop there for now. any one have some good explanations for these points. if so lets discuss it. I'm all ears.


Congrats on pointing something out that a 3rd century Church Father pointed out himself. The book of Genesis cannot possibly be literally true. The dudebro's name was Origen.

What's up with Crunchyroll as of late having a whole bunch of debates about religion all of a sudden? It's not a rhetorical question I'm genuinely curious as to why more and more forums have been popping out as of late.


My thoughts exactly. Most people don't even bother to understand the basic theology or philosophies behind certain religions, yet they are so quick to wish to discuss them with preconceived nothing and no interest in changing those. This applies to both sides of the debate. It's fascinating, yet frustrating to watch.

The problem with religious debates is that it can never be proven one way or the other, that is the whole point of 'faith' so there is little reason for people to bother discussing it in the first place. It always ends with one side saying 'i am right, just except it'.


So true. We can thank to the Scholastics for their hubris that they can prove that their is a god. It's only caused the equal hubris of the other side, and very few take a step back to think for moment.

(1), say he took a rib, never said he left adam that way. considering we have 12, i think its safe to assume if some one can clone/mod the DNA code from a rib into a woman, then they could have replaced the rib.
(2) Genesis 5:3-4, adam and eve had daughters.
(3) moses(?) wrote this. either he made it up, or it was communicated to him by God.
(4), yeah, no idea. good question.
(5) the water is the same, but considering how the earth crust is constanly shifting, its possible the land was lower over all, there by able to flood the whole world.
