Tried to honestly listen to this book...

Wow, could not listen to this book for longer than 30mins...it is basing much of "facts" on the Bible. I take the Bible for what it is, a popular account of stories, beliefs, and recollections of events that happened more than 2000 years ago. It is written by humans and translated many times. Is there useful information in the Bible, sure, there is also a lot of fantasy and symbolism that (depending on one's beliefs) are considered "factual" or "absolutely correct." Unfortunately, anyone who believes that the Bible is "fact" will immediately say this book is amazing and "true" which just props up their beliefs. Turns out "truth" is defined as "that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality" and "a fact or belief that is accepted as true". The very problem is the definition of truth...it uses the words "acceptance" and "accordance" which implies "not universal in nature" or "indisputable." Faith is not fact, it is the belief in something (whether factual or not.) Just because you have faith does not make it true for others, faith is personal. I'm not disputing whether Jesus existed or not, I just don't believe that the Bible should be the definitive litmus test for the claims...it is one source. I am spiritual, but I am cautious about relying on one book (The Bible) for all religious meaning. Wars have been fought and children have been exploited in "the name of god"...we should always seek to question why we believe in anything, we may never had a choice in what we believe.
