You ask: "How can anyone argue using the Bible (or any other holy book) as fact when;

a) They can't provide evidence that there is a god of any sort."

Bible is a book, not a fact. What kind of "evidence" do you want? God is spiritual entity.

Ludwik Kowalski (see Wikipedia)


Ludwik Kowalski, a retired nuclear scientist and the author of a free ON-LINE book entitled “Diary of a Former Communist: Thoughts, Feelings, Reality.”

http://csam.montclair.edu/~kowalski/life/intro.html

It is an autobiography illustrating my evolution from one extreme to another--from a devoted Stalinist to an active anti-communist. This testimony is based on a diary I kept between 1946 and 2004 (in the USSR, Poland, France and the USA).

Why am I distributing these books on-line, instead of selling them for profit? Because I want to share what I know and think about communism. The more people know about proletarian dictatorship less likely will they experience is. Please share the above link with those who might be interested, especially with young people, and with potential reviewers. Thank you in advance.

Hello Ludwik,

If you click on the name of the person in the post you replied to, you can find their posting history and see that they haven't posted here in 3.5 years.

Also, if you type:

[qs]"How can anyone argue using the Bible (or any other holy book) as fact when;
a) They can't provide evidence that there is a god of any sort."[/qs]

Then it will look like:

"How can anyone argue using the Bible (or any other holy book) as fact when;
a) They can't provide evidence that there is a god of any sort."

"qs" means "quote, shaded". The "[qs]" goes at the beginning of what you want quoted and the "[/qs]" part goes at the end.

Bible is a book, not a fact.

To "use a book as fact" means that they're accepting what is written in the book as being factual. Its not a claim that the book, itself, can be considered a fact.

What kind of "evidence" do you want? God is spiritual entity.

I suppose repeatable empirical evidence would be what is wanted.

How do you know that God is spiritual entity?

If you read the Bible, a pretty good idea of your culture and customs. For example, you learn in practice, slavery, women were considered chattel.
