A Comprehensive Set of Explanations
The Bible appears to offer the most comprehensive set of explanations regarding the human experience. This apparently strong, Biblical set of explanations appears to include answers to questions for which science appears not yet to have offered an alternative. Consequently, ascribing more influence to the Bible’s apparent claims than to claims of a pink unicorn, magic space pizza or wizard, as appear to have been suggested, appears to be reasonably considered to be less-than-irrational.
The explanations that the Bible appears to offer appear to include (a) origins, including that of earth and of man, (b) the origin of adversity, (c) the solution for adversity, (d) some portion of the apparent conflicts in the middle east, (e) the historic development of estrangement from God, and (f) the apparently significant role of the nation of Israel. These six points appear to be drawn solely from an small, early portion of the first book of the Bible.
Comprehensive Presentation: Events, Perspectives and Principles
The Bible appears to explain the human experience by presenting relevant events, perspectives and principles. This approach appears to offer a more thorough, well-rounded and relatable presentation of the range of human experience than might an shorter or academic analysis of theory. This approach appears intended to inform regarding what representative parties did, what their thoughts were and the principles that are suggested to impact the human experience.
A Pivotal Moment: Rejecting God's Sovereign Leadership
The Bible appears to suggest that the Biblically-suggested rejection of God’s sovereign leadership is pivotal to the human experience and impacts every aspect of the human experience from human biology and human thought to the environment. The Bible appears to suggest that, as a result, the sole solution to this adverse human condition appears to be the restoration of the God/humanity relationship. This apparent Biblical suggestion appears to be substantiated by history’s apparent report that, despite all of the physical, intellectual and technological development throughout human history, humanity appears reported not to have resolved the adversities associated with the human condition.
Impact of Rejecting God's Sovereign Leadership
Aspects of the human experience apparently suggested by the Bible to have been impacted by this occurrence appear Biblically-suggested to include:(a) the human ability to discern, identify and interact with God, (b) adverse aspects of human nature such as those that might be reasonably described as evil and barbaric.
Introduction of Human and Animal Aggression
The Bible appears to suggest that the fall of man affected human perspective, eventually leading to envy and murder. Development of aggressiveness in animals appears to be reasonably explainable via transference of aggression from humanity to animals. Science appears to suggest that living entities besides humans appear to perceive emotion and, to some extent, to internalize and/or produce the emotions that they perceive. In light of this understanding, introduction of animal aggression via exposure to human aggression appears to be reasonable.
The Importance of the Bible to the World
The Bible appears to suggest that God intended to form a special relationship with Abraham’s lineage, that Abraham was to direct his lineage to keep God’s standards (Genesis 18: 19), and that all the nations of the world would be blessed through Abraham’s lineage (Genesis 12:1-3; Genesis 17:1-8, 19, 21; Genesis 18: 18, 19; Genesis 22:17, 18). An apparently reasonable interpretation of these passages appears to be that God planned for the nation of Israel to exemplify to the world the potential for the relationship between God and humanity. The importance of the Bible to the world appears to be that the Bible appears to be understood to be the guide to that special relationship.
Preference for the King James Version
A certain amount of preference for the King James Version of the Bible appears to be suggested by some. The King James Version appears to be reasonably understood to employ what appears to be generally referred to as the “Old English” dialect of the English language. An apparently reasonable possible explanation for this preference is that “Old English” appears to be reasonably considered to be one of several languages and dialects that appear to be reasonably considered to be the object of greater appreciation among languages and dialects. Recollection appears to suggest that other demographic groups besides that of Christians appear to be somewhat drawn to the English dialect apparently favorably associated with Shakespeare and King Arthur. An apparent, apparently attractive perception of strength and dignity appears to be associated with the dialect.
