Creative writing + critical thinking paper on – principally – the logical contradictions in the Bible and that these apparent contradictions are irreconcilable. I am mainly intereste-d in the logical contradictions. This is as opposed to discrepancies in numbers mentioned in various books, describing same events. This is because of the existing discrepancies – might be argue-d – be a result of scribal “errors”.
Even though the Bible explicitly mentions on numerous occasions. The writers (authors) of the books of the Bible and subsequently the scribes (re-writers) and translators (and should and ought and must have been). Were guide-d by the alleged “Holy Spirit.”
In their each and every step and thought, who (or which God / Holy Spirit) apparently has totally and completely faile-d. As – allegedly – on his job hangs the “salvation” of the world and consequently – the glory (glorification) of God through this “salvation”.
For example, it is argued by Christian apologists that God needed to add glory to himself. Additionally, his character through this “work of salvation”. It is also argued that God is perfect. The dictionary definition of the term “perfect” is that nothing can be added or taken away from/of something that is already perfect.
But if God neede-d to add more perfection to himself, then it logically follows that he was not perfect in the first place. It’s like the term “optimal”. One can not say “more optimal” or “most optimal”, as this would be non-sensical.
Optimal already means perfect for its current state. Otherwise “more optimal” would have to mean “more perfect”, which is non-sensical. Generally, the universal use of the masculine “he”, “himself” or “his” of God, which implies masculine gender. This implies anthropomorphic features of the deity, but it is argue-d that God is a spirit and therefore does not possess anthropomorphic features or character traits.
But on the other hand, Jesus Christ is argue-d to have been 100 % man and 100 % God. Therefore God does possess anthropomorphic features, but then if he does, then this violates the 3 main laws of logic or laws of thought. The logic law state that something cannot be and not be at the same time and in the same sense of the word and that something either is or is not.
In other words, a woman is either pregnant or is not. She cannot be half-pregnant or both pregnant and not pregnant. Moreover, all of the alleged 3 persons of the deity are of masculine gender. Moreover, something cannot be one and three at the same time (the doctrine of the Trinity). Again this violates the laws of logic that govern the universe.
