I have long been fasinated by problems that within the last 100-200 years we have found with the bible. For example, there is the issue with Noah's Arc and a global flood. Do a Google Search (since I can't post the link yet -- this is my first post) for "Problems with Noah's Arc" Another one is the issue of Santa Claus and the speed at which he would have to travel to make it to every house in approx. 30 hours. See, for example, do a Google Search for "Why Santa Claus can't exist" We have pretty strong evidence that it wasn't Adam and Eve, but evolution. Another hole in the Bible. Bill Mahar points out that the concept that Mary was a virgin was only mentioned in 2 of the 4 gospels. That is a pretty significant fact to leave out in the other two. Was that something that was added to the bible at a later date? According to the Bible, three wise men visited when Jesus was born. But, is there any discussion of Jesus after that, until he was much older? If these three wise men knew he was God's son, wouldn't there have been something of significance say during his 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th years of life? Anyone who has a child knows that during these years, a child can be quite a handful. It would seem to me that Jesus, like any child would still need his diaper changed, would still have temper tantrums, etc. All the things of growing up. Essentially, my question is -- what happened on day 2, and week 2 and month 2 with Jesus after these wise men left? Am I the only one in this world that finds these questions troubling? I am sure that there are similar questions, issues and problems in Judism and the Muslim faiths as well. Everyone is free to believe what they want to believe, but these things seem to be pretty big questions. Some say that Noah's Arc is an "alagory," meaning a myth. But, if that is true, then isn't it logical to ask what else in the Bible is also a myth?
