I can accept the possibility of a god of creation. Jesus was a nice guy, but probably a con man. It is the stories of the bible I do not believe in. It is obvious men wrote these stories, not a god. It is not that god does not exist, but rather man does not know god. If man does not truly know god them all religions are just the fantasies of people. When man can say with certainty where and how the universe came from nothing we may have a better understanding of god. When man can explain WHY we evolve and HOW consciousness comes from non-living matter we may have something. As long as we cannot explain how consciousness works and where memories come from we have to admit there is more to reality than we know of.
Once upon a time "scientists" studied alchemy. They wrote discourses on it. Honored each other for their accomplishments and saw no flaws in their thinking. Is this any different than "studying the bible"? We write books on the "proper interpretation" of the passages, claiming scholarly works. This is a philosophy of nonsense. Until politicians, scientists and social leaders expose it as such we will be stuck with it.
