Ianus and our way of life

Reader comment on item: Britain's Encounter with Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: our way of life

Submitted by Infidel (Canada), Feb 22, 2008 at 02:06

I've read many of your articles and am impressed by your contributions. However, your statement that "all religions born in and around the despotic and obscurantist "Holy Land" belong to abject barbarity" simply amazes me. On my way of reading the entire Bible for the third time, although I've studied many other chapters many times, I continue to be impressed by the wisdom it contains. And every time I read from the Bible, I learn new knowledge. I've read thousands of books but there is none like the Bible.

Tell me, have you ever read the Bible? Even an atheist should at least read the book of Proverbs simply because it contains wisdom that can be found no where else. The book of Job was written more than 500 years B.C. Job 26:7 God stretched out the northern sky and hung the earth upon nothing. Scientists did not come to this knowledge more than a thousand years later. Job 38:16 Have you entered the springs of the sea? Tell me Ianus, when did men learn that there were springs in the ocean? Proverbs 8:28: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the "fountains of the deep".

How did the writer of the Book of Proverbs know that there were fountains of water in the ocean at least two thousand years before men discovered them? Isaiah 40:22 It is He who sits above "the circle of the earth". Tell me Ianus, how did the writer of the Book of Isaiah, who lived 740 B.C. know that the earth was round? Was it not Columbus the explorer who discovered that the earth was a globe in the 1600's A.D.? Let me assure you Ianus, that there is no deliberate obscurity or evasion of clarity in the Bible.
