Dragons don’t exist, dinosaurs do. Dragons have scales, so do reptiles. Dinosaurs are scary, so are Giant Monsters.
The word Taninnim in the bible means serpents, repites, snakes, large monsters. You do not refute that definition. This would include creatures that are not found in nature currently. I believe this is a reference to dinosaur
You value your ideas higher than others’ and your perceptions above others as if you have objective reason to believe it…but you don’t, you merely assert it true and turn away to be content with your pride. That is hubris.
It sounds like your logic is, if the bible describes dinosaurs, that would justify the bible is an authority, That would be using the bible to justify the bible’s own authority which you think is the fallacy of authority. This is a non sequitur
You’re putting the cart before the horse. I am not suggesting the bible is true therefore the bible is true. I am saying;
- science is true (authoritative)
- the bible says something that resembles what history and evolution agrees on
- If that is true, the bible says something scientifically true
That is a categorically different argument. This is a non sequitur.
This debate topic is a negative affirmative topic, in other words I am not taking the burden of proof and merely taking a defensive stance on the issue and have no burden of proof other than an equal share. I have given evidence which I consider to be rational and in line with scientific consensus on multiple fronts. So it would be better to talk constructively about the implications of if this were true. But you won’t because if so the argument is already won so you are treating this as if I have the burden of proof when I don’t.
The biblical GOD is love 1 John 4:8 and is our creator and provider. The truth is so much more real that the lie because GOD was a man and died for your sins and that is how real love is and everyone has seen love but most have not believed that He is truth itself. I would rather believe that than make my god darkness and nothingness. For this reason the bible says None are without excuse in believing in GOD because GOD is ever present and available to all. Those who don’t believe have only excuses to believe because love is the ultimate truth and is the fulfillment of all desires of mankind and explains the purpose of having a mind which is a tool to experience it.
You could easily say, well what if my god is Hate? Isn’t that just as valid, well the truth is if you don’t worship love, you do serve hate. The bible says, nobody can serve two masters, either you will love the one and hate the other or vice versa. Do you believe in love or do you deny it for the sake of darkness?
