Bible it's like an old cooking book that was kept with the family for a very long time. Nobody knows where the recipes came from but we are told that it could only come from a supreme god-like being because it is so impossible to explain it in any logical system. Of course all the scriptures were produced, modified, alternated, conglomerated and filtered by some interested (purely human) parties in the course of history - it was just a part of the process of keeping control over ignorant masses. Please do some research. The Bible is not an original text! Have a look at this very powerful monograph: http://www.chronologia.org/en/es_analysis2/index.html - watch for DUPLICATES in BIBLE. It is not a speculation - this research was published and was done according to the standards of modern scientific discovery. If you want to keep your naive believes - do it, we will respect your choice. But please understand that there are arguments against your believes so if you want to keep your illusion do not make us speak up.
The basic problem is that one believes that everything is real, and thus everything is treated as such.
