Intro: Bible scholars, take off those goggles!

Bible goggles are the pre-conceived notion that God is supernatural. Scholars start from that position, and find that surprise, the Bible is full of contradictions. What, ya think?

Imagine if biology or economics were studied in this way. If we began from the basis that science is all magic. Everything would be a confused mess. We could never make any progress.

It gets worse, Bible scholars check their interpretations by how people at the time understood the text. Imagine if science progressed this way? "We know that science is magic, but maybe we will get a better understanding of the work of the pancreas if we ask 1000 random people"!

The Bible Goggles are the problem. Stop assuming that God is supernatural. Take those goggles off!
