The 1.6% Solution

1.6% of the North American population says that the Bible can’t be trusted in what it says. Example: These people used to say that because the Bible is the only known book to mention the Hittites, that people group had obviously never existed. Then the entire Hittite library was discovered in Turkey. This 1.6% of the population still maintain their implausible position. They maintain their position not because of a lack of evidence, but because evidence was never part of their decision in the first place.

  1. Nah, not examining the evidence was the reason I stayed Christian for some long. When I decided to look at the facts "with an open mind" I discovered that a lot of my beliefs weren't based on evidence but other things like ignorance and wishful thinking.
    I won't lie. It hurt a lot. But in the end I found it better to live with the truth and not "The Truth (tm)".
