    So, the bible isn't a book of myths ? just Fairy tales, and fables ?

    Atheists insist there is nothing and are fervent preachers of nothing, so it is not surprising that they know nothing.

    Pink said that myths were used to tell historical events. He did not say they told them accurately.

    Hey Pink (you moron) - here is the dictionary.com definition of the word MYTH:

    myth[ mith ] -- noun 

    1.a traditional or legendary story, usually concerning some being or hero or event, with or without a determinable basis of fact or a natural explanation, especially one that is concerned with deities or demigods and explains some practice, rite, or phenomenon of nature.

    2. stories or matter of this kind:

    realm of myth.

    3. any invented story, idea, or concept:

    His account of the event is pure myth.

    4. an imaginary or fictitious thing or person.

    5. an unproved or false collective belief that is used to justify a social institution.

    GEE!   Look at how many time words like THIS show up:  legendary.  with/without basis in fact.  invented story or idea. imaginary.  fictitious.  unproved.  FALSE belief. used to justify...

    GET AN EDUCATION - you FOOL.

    Atheists know what a myth is, but here is the truth: 

    Two thousand years have gone by since 

    Jesus came back and appeared to his disciples. 

    The fact that Christians, along with their prayers, 

    belief, repentance, and special routines want him 

    to do it again, does not seem to be bringing him back. 

    In John 14:19, Jesus makes it clear: 

    “A little longer and the world will behold me no more.” 

    Obviously, Christians don’t give a damn about what Jesus says. 

    They believe that they deserve better.

    Mike (below me).  This questioner "pink" is clearly too big of an idiot to understand things like that.  You need to use a coloring book, pictures, and very small words for this moron to even begin to grasp what you are saying. His very low self-esteem is showing -- look at how he fires back his little second-grade comebacks to everyone responding to this thread.  LOL

    Of course we know what a myth is.  It was used to create a plausible explanation for something that happened in the past but for which there is no information.

    That doesn't make a myth the facts or the truth.

    I don't know why *you* don't know what a myth is.  Myths told legends, not history. It's a Greek word, you know -- μύθος/mythos.
