Then you are not using the Bible to determine what morals, etc. are good - you are using your own faculties/morals to determine what parts of the Bible are good.

And how does a protest demanding equal treatment by their government or having pictures of that protest land in a newspaper hurt anyone?

Should no one ask for anything - since it might be denied?

I think they are referring to organizations that are experts in the field and that this is more of an appeal to authority than just an ad populum argument.

Santa Claus, or the tooth fairy were only for example - the question remains:

Do you still believe in everything you believed in when you were young? If not, what convinced you otherwise?

never had a reason to doubt

- the bible contradicts science ref ref (e.g. says there was an earth with an atmosphere and trees and grass and night and day, etc. before there was a sun)

- it contradicts history ref

- it makes unfulfilled prophesies ref

- it makes self-contradictory claims about God (e.g. is it possible for an all-powerful god to make a stone that god cannot lift?)

- it tells similar stories that existed in close by regions (e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epic_of_Gilgamesh )

- it even contradicts itself! ref ref ref

there certainly is "reason to doubt", you just choose not to

I've believed in him since I was young

Do you still believe in everything you believed in when you were young (Santa Claus, tooth fairy, that the earth is basically flat), etc.? If not, what convinced you otherwise?

I almost forgot the best one. What were Jesus' last words? You would think that might be important to get right, but out of the 4 gospels - Jesus has 3 different last words.

Matthew 27:46 -

About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?" - which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

Mark 15:34 -

And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?" - which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

Luke 23:46 -

Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." When he had said this, he breathed his last.

John 19:30 -

When he had received the drink, Jesus said, "It is finished." With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

he spoke to me after that and said he was lying to you - then we had a good laugh (and a good scotch)

maybe you mean regional cooling and warming, but the entire globe cooling and warming at the same time is not possible unless you have a new brand of physics you want to spring on us.

and whether or not anyone is depressed is not a valid arguement that they are right or wrong.

“Reality has a well-known liberal bias.” - Stephan Colbert

what do you use to tell what parts of the bible are completely true and what parts are completely made up?
