that the bible was just a book written to conrtrol the human population? I know that the bible has predicted many events...but then, so has nostradomus. So do you think it is possible that a the person(s) who wrote the bible were just psychic? What is it about the bible that MAKES it from God? And here another question...I have been told "God would never give humans the DESIRE to live forever if he did not plan on fulfilling that for us. Animals do not have this desire but people do." Well, yes we do, I dont ever want to die, and I dont know many that do, but how do we KNOW that this is not something that exsist for all life? Mabye my dog does not comprhend death the way I do, but certainly if a coyote were chasing after her to eat her she would run away or fight back...meaning that she knows this could be her end? What do you all think?
