I don't know who Behe is; this was my own conclusion that I came to during patho class. I'd already taken A&P I and II...and I might add, aced all of them while working and having a baby in the middle of the semester. I'm not a simpleton. But anyway, I heard the term "irreducible complexity" later. I'll read the article later in more depth, if I have time; I just scanned it, and I still fail to see how interlocking complexities could have ALL evolved at the same time. It doesn't make statistical sense if we are looking at a purely natural process.
Christians believe the books and letters collectively known as the Bible were given to human writers under God's inspiration. This was done over a time span of a millennium and a half, through over 40 men from HUGELY different walks of life, and all agrees with itself. Archaeology doesn't prove the Bible, but in many case supports it and has never contradicted it.
It's also interesting to note that it touches on scientific tidbits that were not known at the time, but have since been empirically proven. Job describes the earth as being "hung on nothing," Isaiah describes the earth as round--hundreds of years before the earth as flat debate (yes, I know theologians were on the wrong side of that debate in Galileo's day...but they didn't get their position from the Bible
). Job describes the hydrologic cycle: "For he draws up the drops of water, they distill his mist in the rain, which the skies pour down and drop on man abundantly" long before the development of meteorology. The book of Job also, quoting God (yes, I believe God used to speak audibly in a way that He doesn't now--Hebrews 1) in a dialogue between the two, describes an animal Behemoth that sounds a lot like a sauropod (Brontosaurus type) dinosaur...tail like a cedar, bones like tubes of bronze, limbs like iron, plant eating, "first of the works of God" (meaning greatest, grandest), seeking shade from trees in the marshes, able to withstand a turbulent river. That was obviously long before any of those guys were dug up, and I'm not aware of any modern animal that fits that description.
Less-ancient manuscripts of Biblical texts are very similar to more ancient ones; no differences are there that change their meaning. The differences are ancient equivalents of typos, if you will. Not at ALL like a game of telephone. A game of Scriptural telephone would yield a result like "This is not the first world or first universe. There have been and will be many more worlds and universes. These are created by..." becoming "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth."
In any case, the OP asked a question and I responded to it...in the Nursing and Spirituality forum
. I don't have a lot of time to go back and forth with people who just want to compare Yahweh to the Flying Spaghetti Monster and compare Christians to followers of the FSM. So I'm not going to continue this debate, but hope I answered your question!
