My apologies to the mods ahead of time, but I have faith we can stay on topic here and not discuss matters of faith. The point of the thread is only to discuss plot holes in the Bible. This is not a discussion of contradictions or in irrational beliefs such as condemning homosexuals but not shrimp. It's fine if you think a contradiction is a plot hole. But it won't be a very good discussion if we just talk about the rationality of belief. This came up in a different thread on plot holes and it seemed a touchy subject to delve into anywhere but the debate room. Here are some major plot holes as I see them: The Moon is described as a night light, but you can see the Moon during the day as well as at night. Genesis 1:16 - And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night .... If Jesus is God's only son, how can the rest of us be God's children? Why couldn't God just forgive everyone? It makes no sense there had to be a sacrifice. God's making up the rules, it's not like the Bible says Jesus sat around heaven and asked to be punished in place of Adam and Eve. Where Cain got his wife has always been a plot hole. Genesis 4:16 - And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. If Eve was punished by the pain of childbirth that went on in perpetuity, why are women who accepted Christ not absolved of this pain now and why can non-believers use anesthesia? The disappearance of the Garden of Eden rather than having it exist with angels guarding the entrance is a plot hole. The Tower of Babel language divisions is a plot hole given we can learn other languages and given one cannot enter heaven via a tower anyway. I'm not trying to make a judgement about believers by bringing these up. Some in the other thread said they didn't think there were plot holes in the Bible and I felt it needed answering.
