How can we verify that the bible is a credible source? Is there any evidence confirming that God is behind it? Whenever somebody throws a bible quote in a debate, why should we acknowledge it?
There is a famous paradox known as the Omnipotence Paradox which states that omnipotence is self-contradictory when you ask the question "Can God (omnipotent) create a rock that He Himself cannot lift?" This question arises a problem. If God could create such a rock then He would not be able to lift it making it so He would not be omnipotent. If God couldn't create such a rock then He would not be omnipotent because He would not be able to create such a rock. So, is an omnipotent being (such as God) possible?
Aside from various texts pointing to Jesus being God; consider the following: 1) The New Testament claims Jesus saved a people out of the land of Egypt. “Now I want to remind you, although you once fully knew it, that Jesus, who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterwards destroyed those who did not believe” (Jude 1:5, ESV). (2) The reference to rescuing Israel from Egypt is one found throughout all of the Bible beginning with the event itself known at the Exodus. This narrative is nearly common knowledge among atheists, agnostics, Muslims, Jews and Christians alike as we know well the story of the parting sea as Israel escaped Egypt.(3) God, the LORD, is the one who brought the people out of Egypt. It is repeated that God brought the people out of Egypt lest the people forget and abandon their covenant with God. There are roughly 95 verses in the Bible signifying that the “LORD” brought people out of Egypt. (4) Therefore Jesus is God. (a) We are told that Jesus is the one who brought the people out of Egypt. (b) God is the one who brought the people out of Egypt. (c) Therefore, Jesus is God. Additionally: The readers of Jude would have understood this to be the case given that they were primarily Jews and knew well the story of the Exodus and celebrated it every year.The rendering of this verse in the ESV: manuscript evidence: Nestle and Aland in their Greek Text, Novum Testament Graece (27, 28 editions) agree as we can see in their rendering of verse 5 in Jude,"Ὑπομνῆσαι δὲ ὑμᾶς βούλομαι, εἰδότας ὑμᾶς ἅπαξ πάντα ὅτι Ἰησοῦς (Jesus) λαὸν ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου σώσας τὸ δεύτερον τοὺς μὴ πιστεύσαντας ἀπώλεσεν" What manuscripts contain the rendering "Jesus"? Well, most of the early witnesses including; A, B, 33, 81, 1241, 1739, 1881, 2344, pc, vg, co, Or1739mg, 88, 322, 323, 424c, 665, 915, 2298, eth, Cyr, Hier, Bede (all can be examined here: http://www.csntm.org...) Also; P72, Codex Vaticanus, Codex Alexandrinus, the Bohairc Copic, and the Latin Vulgate all have a rendering indicating "Jesus" (while P72 says God Christ).NA28: http://www.nestle-aland.com...

Religions are groups of people united by shared sacred values. Sacred values are those values that are deemed by the adherants of a specific religion to be of the utmost importance. No one could amass an army of people willing to risk their lives in the interest of values they don't hold at the deepest level.
"Albert Einstein was quoted in The New York Times, Nov. 9, 1930, saying: “I assert that the cosmic religious experience is the strongest and noblest driving force behind scientific research.”Albert Einstein stated: “God Almighty does not throw dice.” and “Before God we are all equally wise – equally foolish.”As recorded by Helen Dukas in “Albert Einstein, The Human Side” (Princeton University Press, 1981, p. 66), Einstein stated: “My religiosity consists in a humble admiration of the infinitely superior spirit that reveals itself in the little that we, with our weak and transitory understanding, can comprehend of reality. Morality is of the highest importance-but for us, not for God.”Einstein stated in an interview published in G.S. Viereck’s book “Glimpses of the Great,” 1930: “I’m absolutely not an atheist. … The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn’t know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God. We see the universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws but only dimly understand these laws.”"http://mobile.wnd.com/2017/03/how-1-of-historys-most-brilliant-men-viewed-god/
According to a video from one of brontoraptor's debate, children are trained to be atheists.And even now, these children become adults in bodily appearance but not in wisdom. Damien Marley in a song patience asks "are we growing wiser, or we just growing tall?"That is a very interesting question.So some fully grown ass men and women are still obeying mummy and daddy.(lol, ironical, just like jesus obeys his father till death).Your Grandparents trained your parents, they trained you and i suppose you too are training your children in the same foolishness.These three hated atheism:Lord Kelvin , Isaac newton, Albert Eistein. Who can go pass these three.If through your stupid little ways, you maneuver it possible, then you have indirectly insulted your ancestors of science which is an insult to yourself, a current they follower.
