It propagates almost exclusively from childhood indoctrination. If Biblical literalism isn't emphasized during childhood, if a child is raised with Christianity without that emphasis, they are not likely to be literalists as adults.

I'm one of those people that believe the Bible as it is written. I believe that Adam and Eve were humans created just as the Bible says. I believe that God created all animals of the land at the same time and all of the animals of the see at the same time. ALL meaning Dinosaurs as well. I believe that when talking about creationism or evolution you're talking about faith. I put my faith in the scriptures and others put their faith in science.

even the atrocities toward women? Not being educated, Not talking you men when on your period?
Ok for fathers to let their daughters be raped?



Because if you buy that much, you have to buy it all.

You really believe dinosaurs were around at the same time as people? So, the Flintstones is historically accurate?

I believe in it all. I didn't say that I have to like it all. When reading scriptures, especially the old testament, which I'm sure is the part you are referencing, you must keep it in correct context and understand the period, the laws, and the culture of the people at that time. If you have a specific scripture that you would like to discuss I can give you my thoughts on it.

Like what? Since neither of us were there, then I'm assuming that you're taking the word of someone else that says that something never happened. You're putting your faith in whoever made that statement, and I put my faith in scripture. You are welcome to believe anything you want. It's not my job to convince anyone of the truth of scripture.

Let's start you off with some thing easily disproven. The ark. Even Ricky Gervais has a good argument against it and he's a comedian.

I put my faith in historical documentation, archaeologically, and science which all prove vast swaths of the bible never happend, and others happened much different than recorded. The conquest of Joshua would be a perfect example of a non historical event.

Not to mention it's a rip off of the sumerian flood story.
