The Bible, the Tanach, the Koran, etc.are a selection of religious writings that fit the world view of the respective religion.
Religious writings that did not make it into the Bible are called “apocrypha“.
Oh, again a bad translation from English.This is meant: “If atheists are right and there is no God, why was the Bible written?”
Well, there are a few possibilities from a logical point of view:
- There is God, and the Bible was written by non-believers in God to influence or control “the people”.
(Type: Conspiracy Theory)
(Type: Education through Ethics of Principles)
(Type: Forget the atheists who didn’t understand it)
(Type: all nonsense from the start)
(Type: Forget the believers who did not understand)
(Type: The best theory is nothing without example)
Note: if the premise was negative, no book would have been produced.
(Type: Conspiracy Theory)
(Type: all fairy tales)
(Type: the true revelation never comes)
Damnation, fiery pile and hell, hell for you! (Type: Vollidiot, not powerful of thought)
Nonsense, lies-pres-se and contempt, contempt for you! (Type: Volidiot, not powerful of thought)
The book is supposed to change that? Ok, let’s see. (Type: ignorant, but interested)
In the book I learn more. Ok, let’s see. (Type: ignorant, but interested)
There are probably a few more.In my experience, only the last two of these guys talk to each other. The rest is borne, right-honed, power-hungry, megalomaniacal, logic-fixated or otherwise disturbed. There is no need for any discussion with believers in God and atheists in equal measure. There is nothing to discuss, there is no need for a conversation from the outset.
You can’t convince anyone you’re not willing to understand.There is no point in trying to impose your opinion as the right, more important and better.
It is not the question of the existence of God that is decisive, but openness to the faith (or non-belief) of the other.
Otherwise, you can easily save all the evidence, arguments and evidence (wherever) you can, and so can I.
In any case, I belong to the believers in God.I am always ready to answer and have a conversation. It should just be respectful. For my side, I can promise that.
So, first we have to think and think when the Bible was written.
The Bible as we know it today is about 2500 AT and about 1900 NT years old.
The Old Testament is a book on the identification of a people and the explanation of the world as it is committed to the people of that time.It contains a collection of myths and is partly copper-plated from older texts.
How does a Stone Age man, or a Bronze Age man, explain the world?How did he deal with the incredible natural disasters? There must be gods behind it.
And that’s how stories come about.
With the NT, it’s much more difficult.It is a story from different angles, which were written down according to supposed observers, at a later date and subsequently modified again and again. The story takes place in a strictly religious but also revolutionary environment in the Roman province. The promise of a better life after the present appeals to many, and the simple rules are a good way to steer people.
Other religions and mythologies have also tried to describe the world.
Religious freedom is not freedom to the found truth.
In the freedom of a Christian, you better ask yourself why is a valid constitution that does not stand above a formally invalid Bible (unprotected name, no original text).
Authors are in the cover.This does not give rise to the legitimation of a fictitious supernatural, omniscient, almighty authorship of God.
If atheists are correct and there is no God, why was the Bible written?
This question has already been asked in a similar way, orAnswered:
The Bible was written for often anarchically egocentric nomadic peoples and other cultures, so that they could develop their own morality on the basis of an understandable history, which enabled them to live together more peacefully.
The Bible and other unbooks were written as a means of oppression, by fraudsters of the worst kind.
I suspect out of boredom.There was little exciting literature before.
I was not aware that the Bible was written by atheists.
Because it has been recognized that tradition alone is not enough!(at least with the Bible)!
