If atheists are correct and there is no God, why was the Bible written?

The Bible, the Tanach, the Koran, etc.are a selection of religious writings that fit the world view of the respective religion.

Religious writings that did not make it into the Bible are called “apocrypha“.

Oh, again a bad translation from English.This is meant: “If atheists are right and there is no God, why was the Bible written?”

Well, there are a few possibilities from a logical point of view:

  • There is God, and the Bible was written by non-believers in God to influence or control “the people”.

(Type: Conspiracy Theory)

  • There is God, and the Bible was written by believers in God to give “the people” a handle on what is right and wrong.
  • (Type: Education through Ethics of Principles)

  • There is God, and the Bible was written by believers and non-believers who could not help but have been told otherwise because the existing God has presented his thoughts to them.
  • (Type: Forget the atheists who didn’t understand it)

  • There is God, but in tradition something has really gone wrong (type: the true revelation is yet to come)
  • There is no God, and people with a compulsive conception (god-believing) have done something psychotic.
  • (Type: all nonsense from the start)

  • There is no God, and people who knew that others would accept a conception of God, even though they themselves did not believe in it, wanted to influence or control “the people” (we had already had above; Type: Conspiracy Theory)
  • There is no God, but people have written the Bible to make it easier for “people” to understand what is right and wrong (type: education through ethics of principles; we already had)
  • There is no God, and the Bible has been deliberately conceived in contradictory way, so that “the people” can recognize it for themselves.
  • (Type: Forget the believers who did not understand)

  • God may or may not be, but the Bible was a way to try out what follows from a positive premise.
  • (Type: The best theory is nothing without example)
    Note: if the premise was negative, no book would have been produced.

  • God may or may not be, but we must somehow get a grip on “the people”.
  • (Type: Conspiracy Theory)

  • God may or may not be, but he is a great narrative figure.
  • (Type: all fairy tales)

  • God may or may not be, but we will not know.
  • (Type: the true revelation never comes)

  • You dare to say that there is no God?
  • Damnation, fiery pile and hell, hell for you! (Type: Vollidiot, not powerful of thought)

  • You dare to say that there is a God?
  • Nonsense, lies-pres-se and contempt, contempt for you! (Type: Volidiot, not powerful of thought)

  • I don’t believe in God.
  • The book is supposed to change that? Ok, let’s see. (Type: ignorant, but interested)

  • I believe in God.
  • In the book I learn more. Ok, let’s see. (Type: ignorant, but interested)

    There are probably a few more.In my experience, only the last two of these guys talk to each other. The rest is borne, right-honed, power-hungry, megalomaniacal, logic-fixated or otherwise disturbed. There is no need for any discussion with believers in God and atheists in equal measure. There is nothing to discuss, there is no need for a conversation from the outset.

    You can’t convince anyone you’re not willing to understand.There is no point in trying to impose your opinion as the right, more important and better.

    It is not the question of the existence of God that is decisive, but openness to the faith (or non-belief) of the other.
    Otherwise, you can easily save all the evidence, arguments and evidence (wherever) you can, and so can I.

    In any case, I belong to the believers in God.I am always ready to answer and have a conversation. It should just be respectful. For my side, I can promise that.

    So, first we have to think and think when the Bible was written.

    The Bible as we know it today is about 2500 AT and about 1900 NT years old.

    The Old Testament is a book on the identification of a people and the explanation of the world as it is committed to the people of that time.It contains a collection of myths and is partly copper-plated from older texts.

    How does a Stone Age man, or a Bronze Age man, explain the world?How did he deal with the incredible natural disasters? There must be gods behind it.

    And that’s how stories come about.

    With the NT, it’s much more difficult.It is a story from different angles, which were written down according to supposed observers, at a later date and subsequently modified again and again. The story takes place in a strictly religious but also revolutionary environment in the Roman province. The promise of a better life after the present appeals to many, and the simple rules are a good way to steer people.

    Other religions and mythologies have also tried to describe the world.

    Religious freedom is not freedom to the found truth.

    In the freedom of a Christian, you better ask yourself why is a valid constitution that does not stand above a formally invalid Bible (unprotected name, no original text).

    Authors are in the cover.This does not give rise to the legitimation of a fictitious supernatural, omniscient, almighty authorship of God.

    If atheists are correct and there is no God, why was the Bible written?

    This question has already been asked in a similar way, orAnswered:

    How did you come up with the idea of writing the Bible?

    The Bible was written for often anarchically egocentric nomadic peoples and other cultures, so that they could develop their own morality on the basis of an understandable history, which enabled them to live together more peacefully.

    The Bible and other unbooks were written as a means of oppression, by fraudsters of the worst kind.

    I suspect out of boredom.There was little exciting literature before.

    I was not aware that the Bible was written by atheists.

    Because it has been recognized that tradition alone is not enough!(at least with the Bible)!
