Bible is Errant

Creationists claim the bible is inerrant, 100% true, 0% error. But then when you point out the bible says the earth is flat and the sky is a solid dome and the earth is the center of the universe, they backpedal and say god deliberately put errors into the creation to match the thinking of 3000 years ago.

Even if people believed the biblical misconceptions 3000 years ago, it does not make them true.

You can prove to yourself whether the bible is inerrant. Pick ten verses at random. Research/test whether they are each indeed true and consistent with the rest of the bible. If you find even one error, the entire bible cannot be said to be inerrant.

Even if a god could, in theory, have made the earth look older than it is, it is not evidence he actually did so. The bible clearly contains errors. Claiming the bible is inerrant is just a filthy lawyerly trick to avoid an embarrassing truth. It is part of the Christian con man’s breezy patter. When a Christian claims the bible is inerrant, they are not only mistaken, they are lying.
