Ridiculously Fallacious Arguments – I Fail to Understand the Desperation


KJV Online, on a page titled “Scientific Proof of the Bible”, purports to demonstrate the bible referenced scientific discoveries prior to mankind. It’s is further suggested the reader consider if this is scientific proof that the bible was inspired by their god.

While I certainly can’t know the mind of the writer, this reeks of desperation born of delusion.

To illustrate, here is is one of the “proofs”.

Fact: “Certain animals carry diseases harmful to man”
Bible reference: Leviticus 11
Man figured this out: 16th Century

Leviticus 11:1-8 follows. I actually pitty the person that conceived the following as supporting in any way proof of the supernatural.

{11:1} And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,
{11:2} Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These [are] the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that [are] on the earth.
{11:3} Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, [and] cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.
{11:4} Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: [as] the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
{11:5} And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he [is] unclean unto you.
{11:6} And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he [is] unclean unto you.
{11:7} And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he [is] unclean to you.
{11:8} Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they [are] unclean to you.


I am a thinking being. I value reason.

  1. Actually, the reason for listing a set of animals that were not to be eaten was solely to differentiate the Hebrews from the other Canaanites who did eat all those critters, making a hobby horse they could ride around like the Adventists and their Saturday services, so they could say, “Look at us, we’re special!”
