I often hear religious leaders defend the Bible, claiming that it contains the infallible word of god and asserting it contains no contradictions. No human with the capability to understand written language is able to logically argue against the hundreds of contradictions that are contained within it. This leaves the stark question… Are they unfamiliar with what is actually written or are they lying? Neither case should leave followers feeling confident in what they are told. I argue, however, that the real question is posed… Why is either allowed to be continued? Simply put- fallibility creates doubt… the single greatest enemy to religious adherence. And they know it.
