Is The Bible Really Accurate?

By - - [ Religion Opinion ]

According to the bible,approximately 3000yrs ago, Earth was flooded with water and the only people who survived were just eight; Noah and his Family.
We now have approximately 8billion people in the world right now.

Can someone tell me how 8 people multiply to 8billion people in just 3000 years?

That's means the population increases at a rate of 2.7million people per year.And we still need to consider death rate too,since it's not everybody that has been born is alive till now.I don't know about you but i think it's impossible.
‎Everyone knows that it takes around 9months to give birth to a baby and that baby will have to grow to around atleast 18years before finding a mate and then proceed to giving birth to another baby. At this rate we should be around half a million(if my calculations are right) or so. How then did we reach a freaking 8billion? I suppose only God knows that.. Or do you? 

And if the only race of people that survived are Israelites, where the hell did Americans,British,Blacks etc originate from? 
Seriously, something is wrong with our universe,Right? Or is the Bible scam?

I think the reason we are so much is because of the high birth rate in each countries like India, Nigeria and China. In Nigeria a family can have up to 8 to 10 children and each children gives birth to another children. The children's children too gives birth to childrens. If we want to look at some family, i mean the whole family, the grandfathers, grandmas, father, Mother, uncle, aunt, niece, nephew and cousin approximately they should be up to 50 in just a family. So what are we saying here?

I don't care if the bible is scam or not . but what I believe is there is a supreme being above every other man and creature ,and that's God .

God created all race including the Asians, Americans, Africans and the rest . but from the origin of every nation, they have their own way of worshiping their God before Christianity came

People are now seeing the light. The bible is a book written by primitive people who didn't understand there world. They saw things but didn't know how it came about so they created a God themselves, afterall it could only be a superior being that made all things (I don't doubt this). But am of the opinion that no one truely know who that being is. Every religion including christianity is doing guess work.

First of all the Bible is no scam, look if any human wants to find out how God does his things the person will eventually end up confused, now speaking about the different races , people spread all across the world, and all across the world we have different climates each race adapted to the different climates spread across the world. Check out a Caucasian who has been living in Nigeria for years without going back to his country or hiding from the sun you’d see he or she is already toning down to being brown skinned that’s how it works and for people abroad they tend to be lighter in complexion. You can make your research about this later. Now no where in the Bible states exactly what race existed ( whether it was black or white) we just know people existed, if we can know what race existed that will probably serve as an answer to all our questions. Thank you

The fact is that no one can truly know the full extent of that crisis if other people survived or not and besides, christianity is not the only religion that has details or story of the "Great flood that cleansed the world" so i think all that matters is individual belief, if you choose to believe or not.

Nobody can actually say for sure if the Bible exactly accurate or not but there are things in the Bible that can be portrayed to some of the things that is going on in the world today, if not %100 accurate, it's still a little bit close to it .

The Bible is never a scam and can never be. No man understands the ways of God and we will never be able to comprehend cos they look like foolishness to us. Thing is, the Bible is for reproof, discipline and growth of believers to help them know God more and get closer to Him.

It’s very confusing and people don’t really wants to argue about this kind of details in the Bible , and now there is a lot of versions of the Bible with different explanation and ideas , which I heard to be said it’s the word of God , can this be said to be masterminded by great philosophers

I don't mean to dispute you, but it seems to me in my own point of view that your calculations might slightly be incorrect.

Yes the birth of Jesus Christ serves as a partition in time and history, as in the fact that the years before his birth been regarded to as BC and the years after his birth as AD.

I don't know if I'm not fully informed oh, but to the best of my knowledge, there are 2000+ years after Jesus' birth, but I have not come across anywhere that gave account of the exact number of years from creation till the time of Jesus' birth. The highest is that they reference an event and how many years before jesus' birth it happened. So we shouldn't categorically say it was 1000 years. And thus the 3000 years you used seems to be incorrect to me. I stand to be corrected anyway.

The bible says that His ways are not our ways neither are His thoughts our thoughts. The bible also says that the wisest of men is like the foolishness of God. If you begin to question God, you might end up swallowing more rhat you can chew. The bible also says that when the people of the world gathered together to build a tower that reaches heaven, God brought confusion into their midst and they started speaking in different lauguage. This is why we have so many languages in the world today.

There is nothing wrong there,that is if you are talking about the world population,y ou just didnt do your research well,dont you know that the women conceed in pair(the born twin,a male and female) so its very possible even considering population factor.

And back then ,they live longer life,therefore a woman can born as many as possible throughout their lifetime.

again,God is surely with them,and he does what pleases him beyond our imagination.

The truth is that there are many things that I don't understand in the bible, some stories told with no good explanation, just like the end of Adam and eve and what about their children. After the world was destroyed with water, the survival are only relative right?foes they marry them selves. But I finally conclude that the bible is written by man and is also rewrite by man for that some stories are added by the writers.

The situation in the time of Noah is that people in the world are not split and distinguished, so people by then are of different types, same thing qualified animal by then, even the whole world can easily be govern by on person, it is the power of God he shows us by rapid the development, because Noah is unarguably the first prophet on earth.
Meanwhile, it is stated not only in the Bible but all the prophets book including the Qur'an.
And if we must have strong faith in God, we must also believe in all his Book. Thanks!

Approximately 3000 years doesn't mean it's actually 3000 years it can be over 5000 years and even at that, you cannot say the Bible is scam Cos the Bible says in 2timothy chapter 3 Vs 16 that all scripture is God's breath and it's useful for teaching, the Bible also says God cherishes his word more than his name so his word cannot be a lie

Do you read the Bible at all? Remember during the time of Noah and Adam and eve, the way they got multiplied was by marrying each other and after and after the flood, the same thing happened. Do you remember the story of the tower of babel after the Israelite have been saved, They were building a tower so big that God had to change their languages  So that's how they were divided and that led to rise of other nations

If you don't believe the narrations of bible on the issue pertaining to life, you will never believe the existence of God, the world is filled with wonders of God and nobody can question his way,work and supernatural power, from what I learned in the bible, the generation that was saved during the time of Noah were 8 but don't forget they gave birth to children's and so it continue like that, we can't say bible is a scam which its not, bible is real and always revel the truth about God.

Go and read your Bible properly. There where some people back then in the Bible who built a very high tower because they wanted to see God. But God changed their languages so they couldn't understand themselves they had to separate. The Bible is summarized...go to isreal and make your research it's in the scriptures

Believing the Bible is faith. The Bible isn't a story written by several individuals. It's a revelation given by God so whatever us written is the truth. The word of God is in the Bible and the word is the truth. You can never understand the bible with your mere knowledge,you need insight and wisdom of God.

Bible is not wrong or telling lies. I think it only happened to people of Israelites and not all the tribe or every where. Remember, Bible only talked about the Israelites more than everyone else . We have Egypt, Ethiopia, Lybia etc that exists before now and people of Israel visited all these places in their exile. So, not everyone was consumed in the flood. It's about the people of Israel

The accuracy of the Bible is not something I think we can every argue about, before our very own eyes we see some of its prophecy coming to pass... 

The wars, killings, struggle for power etc this are some shouldof the things the Bible have spoken of before now, and what do we have??? They are all manifesting ...

Thou there might have been some ommision or probably some little addition in the process of transciribing from one language to another 

Dear writer I believe the Bible is still the most accurate book ever.

Please keep in mind that people lived far longer than we do today. The life expectancy then was close to a thousand years but today it's barely 70

The supreme God created human being and universe. The scientists tell us about the planets. These planets, galaxies and stars are linked to each other.. It was the world of Noah that was destroyed. There were other world in existence then unaffected by the destruction (flood). For example also, there was a world existing before Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve were not first human creation of God. The former world was as well destroyed as this present world will be destroyed later too. Just as remnants were left to safety during the flood of Noah, 8 souls, so also, remnants were left to safety during the pre-Adamic world. These are those married to Cain other children of Adam/Eve that multiply on earth till now.. The bible still metaphorically talks about all these facts. You need to delve into the book of Job, Psalm, Ezekiel and Isaiah illumination.

The Bible is not a scam or untrue. There are so many mysteries of this world that we cannot ascertain. There are even over a million beings that haven't been discovered because of their geographical locations. Those who made research and said we have about 8billion humans in this world made a hypothetical conclusion because I'm very sure they didn't do a head count. What they did was to estimate death rate and birth rate,from there,they draw a conclusion that the earth has about 8 billion inhabitants. People can reproduce a million of their kinds in just a matter of few years. Remember in the olden days, brothers and sisters could get married and reproduce. Some women then have given birth about 4 times before reaching the age of 24 or 25. King Solomon married 1000 wives(700 wives and 300 concubines). Now if Solomon was able to impregnate each of them,then it's possible that the total number of children he would have then might be 100,000. Now , some of the wives may sleep with an outsider and get pregnant without d knowledge of Solomon. So what are you saying? God is a master planner. The Bible is 99% true.

Firstly I seriously doubt 3000 years ago was the time the flood occured, because taking into account the linage of king David in the Bible back to Noah, there are more than 120 generations. And we all know people of old lived long, so there is no way the time of the flood was 3000years ago because we all know that Jesus died more than 2000 years alone. Our historians in the house can confirm that.
