Whats the loophole?Descender said:I agree of course, but that doesn't constitute 100% proof. Not that it matters to me, but that's the way it is. There will always be a loophole.
well then he isnt benevolent, again.
That there is 100% proof that the Christian God doesn't exist. God could still exist, and have had a son called Jesus, and Moses could still have freed the Isralites and killed the Mennenites and the Hittites etc, but the above proves the bible isnt the word of God.
Or if it is hes lying. In which case one of the major aspects of Christian religion - God is good, FAILS.
One way or another the Catholic belief system falls right there.
There is no way out without acknowledging that some of the keystones of the Christian faith are wrong.
