Why the bible ISN'T evidence.

RE: Why the bible ISN'T evidence.
True. Most most non-believers have fundamentalists in mind. At the same time, most Roman Catholic theologians would (I think) agree with me and they are hardly a fringe denomination. You could say that RC is the premier Christian group.

I once heard a Catholic Priest start an epiphany (Visit of the Magi) homily by saying "You know there were no wise men, right? No visit from gift-bearing Kings or prophets or whatever they were supposed to have been."  He then launched into a great explanation of how the writer of Matthew wanted to use this image to show divinity.  I wanted to hug him.  My fundamentalist parents would have been outraged at that statement.  Yes, the Catholics are not nearly as literal-minded.
"Nothing that a Christian and a Muslim can say to each other will render their beliefs mutually vulnerable to discourse, because the very tenets of their faith have immunized them against the power of conversation."  -- Sam Harris

But the bible mentions people and places that existed at the time of writing. How could that be if it wasn't accurate?

On another note, I'm going to New York next year to meet Spider-Man

My favorite saying:

"Using the bible to prove god exists, is like using the night before christmas to prove santa claus exists"
