Inconvenient Evidence

The quote comes from a comment Tyler left on Tony Breeden’s blog, which I thought made an important point very clearly and succinctly.

    Odd that you omitted my answer, which reveals why his quote is nonsense:

    “Nothing is plain in the record, credulous serpent. What we have is evidence – and evidence is never self-explanatory. It has to be interpreted. You can interpret that evidence on the authority of men committed to pure naturalism, on the authority of God’s revealed Word, or on your own authority as you do, picking and choosing when you believe the Bible is true and when it must be wrong because the naturalists object to the supernatural revelation of God.”
    Keep thinking,

      You mean on the authority of those who interpret the evidence as God’s revealed word.

        On the authority of those who interpret their interpretation of the words of ancient human beings as “God’s revealed Word.”
