Record few Americans believe in Biblical inerrancy.

Record few Americans believe in Biblical inerrancy.
  • 24% believe Bible is literal word of God, the lowest in Gallup's 40-year trend
  • View of Bible as secular stories and history at 26%, up from 21% in 2014
  • The largest segment, 47%, still think Bible is inspired word of God

And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

Makes me wonder how many folks are going straight from the inerranist camp to the fable camp.

Should we be on the look out for re-education camps?

And that's why there are 70,000 schisms, denominations, and sects in the confused and confusing world of Christianity.
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

For them, or for Us? The former, to be sure, commonly referred to as The Internet.

YAAAAAAAAAY! Biblical inerrancy is the bottom of the barrel as far as anti-intellectual religiosity goes. I'm so glad it's on the decline!

Just curious, any Biblical inerrantists here?

Probably GC. Maybe Steve? Most will argue for the possibility of every snatch of scripture that comes up being true, whether they claim it all is or not.

Acing net neutrality is going to be bad in that regard. People in those highly religious states may have allies in their ISPs that limit the types of sites people in them can view. The kind of crap I see at a woodworking site I am a member of- A guy cut out a thin plywood silhouette of a woman and painted it pink, with dark wavy hair. People were stabbing their eyes out with Bic pens and complaining about how their "12 year old sons visit this site, and shouldn't see this stuff". Gotta be shitting me. Needless to say, there will be pockets of even more ignorant people, if they can't have unrestricted access to the entire internet.
If you get to thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else’s dog around.
