I was thinking: why don’t Christians realize that the Bible is not the word of god? A history of scriptures show us that the Bible has much in common with other texts (i.e. animal sacrifice; myths and mythological characters; the death of people that believed differently). Wouldn’t the word of the creator of the universe distinguish itself — so much so that naysayers see it as distinctive? It most certainly should or at the very least, we should expect as much. However, that is far from the case. Thus, I offer the simple yet effective Argument from Distinction:
P1 If any scripture be divine, we should expect it to be distinct from other scriptures.
P2 The Bible does not meet that expectation.
P3/C1 Therefore, the Bible is not divine.
P4 If the Bible is not divine, it could not have been written and/or inspired by a divine source.
P5 The Bible is not divine.
P6/C2 Therefore, the Bible could not have been written and/or inspired by a divine source.
From P6/C2, one can infer that since the Bible isn’t written and/or inspired by a divine source that it isn’t the word of god.
