    There is nothing to ignore and this is not due to lack of knowledge. Perhaps you need to read a book by Hugh Ross.

    It doesn't. It exists because of a body of early believers in Christ. They collated the book. It's a fundy myth that Christianity derives from the Bible. It doesn't. The Bible derives from Christianity.

    Indeed there were Christians way before there was ever a Bible.

    Instead of saying the Bible, wouldn't it be a bit more accurate to say the New Testament portion of the Bible? Just a thought....

    Yes and no. It was the community of believers who decided which bits of the Jewish Scriptures would form their Bible. So although the texts already existed, as specifically Christian Scripture they come after the church.

    What do I say to YEC's? Open their mind a little and conceive other possibilities...other ways of interpreting scripture. The Bible isn't a readers digest.

    Thanks for the comments. The point you raised is precisely the reason why I used the qualifying words "a bit" in my earlier post....
