Being doubtful of an un-credit-worthy theory someone came up with does not mean going against science.

Then there's no way to tell which interpretation is true, so taking its literal form into questioning is in fact, the proper way to criticize the Christian religion, which is what we're doing. Having done so, you'll also find that it'll always come to the conclusion that the Bible doesn't have much truth.

No, he just threatens you with eternal damnation. I was hoping me and him could come to some sort of understanding but, eternal damnation.. yeah that's cool too.

1. He hasn't because he doesn't exist.
2. According to the Bible he did before, for some reason he's given up torturing us now.
