If God is eternal and all knowing, then why should the religions
Excerpt from the book The True Nature Of Human Nature
Over the years, religion has justified its existence via passages from a holy book and have stated that since the quotes listed in these writings are inspired by their God, they should be adhered to as fact. Previous arguments in the past would involve a quote from scripture as their basis of faith and that these truths were undeniable. These truths included that the world was flat, that the Earth was the center of the solar system or universe, that every creature on the planet was created by God and so on. However, when science provided facts that were contrary to these truths, these principals were either stated to have never been true in the first place or were assimilated into their beliefs. This retroactive evidentialism has continued throughout the history of religion in the face of science. If a sentient creator compelled man to write these books via inspiration and revelation, then why is such fine-tuning of their beliefs essential? I have heard the argument from progressive Christians in the past that the Bible, for example, was written so far back in time that you must understand the Bible in its context and that you cannot bring a modern idea into the classic religious infrastructure without violating or harming scripture. This point of contention falls flat on its face as it places the supreme deity in a position of disenfranchisement, a creator without all of the answers.
