This happens often, I find. Someone with a very specific sort of reading of the Bible defends it by saying:
1. It's too complicated to discuss.
2. You don't know anything.
3. You're attacking Christianity.
These are all defensive obfuscations that lead to no learning for anyone.
BTW, no one said, Blackdog, that you don't know something. For example, back those many posts ago I asked some questions you still haven't answered. I suggested some linguistic explanations that put your view of the Bible into question. Rather than defend your views, you attacked me as ignorant.
It's a weak set of ideas that doesn't merit a defense. It's a weak debater who runs away when challenged. Unfortunately, for many people, scriptures are the one text we can think with (i.e., we draw conclusions about other things based on them) but mustn't think about (i.e., we must not investigate them beyond the dogma we've been taught).
Personally, I think we have to investigate the Bible as we would any other text. That doesn't mean relegating it to the status of a fairy tale, but it does mean engaging with a variety of interpretations with a tendency to challenge them all. We do that with every other idea and every other text--why not with this one? Why is it necessary to run away and hide in the warm, easy comfort of what you already "know?"
