Default why are there errors in the bible and yet people follow it?

1. Astronomy: First we deal with Astronomy.The Bible speaks about the creation of the universe. In the beginning, 1st Book, Book of Genesis, 1st Ch., it is mentioned - It says… ‘Almighty God created the Heavens and the Earth, in six days and talks about a evening and a morning, referring to a 24 - hour day. Today scientists tell us, that the universe cannot be created in a 24 hour period of six days.

if your going to argue the Quran also says six days : "Your Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in six days and then settled Himself firmly on the Throne... (Qur'an, 7:54)

the word used is "ayyamin" meaning (long) periods and NOT 24 hour days like the Bible has it mentioned..


Gen 1:14-18 claims that God made the sun on the 4th "day". How can there be three "days" before the sun even exists?
Gen 1:11;12 claims that plant life was created before the sun. How can there be plants without any sun?

these are just a very few of the errors.. there are many more

and if ur going to say that the Bible is not a science book? well dont you think it should be consistant with science because its GODS words? or given by God?

God and science have never got along very well. I would'nt take those days to heart for the NT says one day is like a thousand years to the Lord. If I am to believe in God which I do, that He created the universe, black holes, super novas, dark matter, us and what not, I gotta believe He could do a book.

INSPIRED by God, but through the personalities and knowledge of the MEN who wrote them.

Besides, the Bible's mythological tales are not to be taken literally, but metaphorically.

A lot of people argue that the Bible is meant to be taken metaphorically rather than literally, especially in regards to the more fantastic of stories. Quite a strong opponent, though certainly not without its own problems.

Well, many books, technically. The Bible is more of a collection of Jewish and early Christian writings than a single work.

This is true, many letters, and He put it together in a way that with the right heart a person is able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
