The Skeptical Review 1991 (Volume Two, Number One) http://freethought.tamu.edu/mag/sr/1991/1/ The Jannes-Jambres Syndrome How did Paul know the names of the magicians who opposed Moses (2 Tim. 3:8)? Farrell Till shows that Paul knew their names from a widely known oral and written tradition and that, therefore, this verse hardly constitutes evidence for the inspiration of the Bible. Yahweh's Failed Land Promise "On several occasions prophetic statements were made in the Pentateuch about the land that Yahweh, the tribal god of the Israelites, had promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob." According to Farrell Till, the Old Testament evidence shows that Yahweh broke his promise. Possession of the Promised Land Charles Coats gives a Christian response to the above article, contending that Yahweh did not break his promise. According to Coats, Yahweh's promise was a conditional promise and the Israelites had not lived up to the conditions of his promise. Scientific Boo-Boos in the Bible Scientific mistakes in the Bible prove it is not inerrant.

How many times have bibliolaters said this to skeptics after all rational efforts to defend the Bible have failed?" Farrell Till responds to this oft-given inerrantist argument. The Blood of Jezreel Jerry McDonald replies to Farrell Till's article entitled "A Perfect Work of Harmony?". He claims there is no contradiction between 2 Kings 10:30 and Hosea 1:4. Ahab, Jezebel, Jehu, and the Blood of Jezreel Till responds to Jerry McDonald and claims that the contradiction between 2 Kings 10:30 and Hosea 1:4 still stands. Bible Biology Did Bible writers demonstrate knowledge of scientific facts that were unknown at the time the Bible was being written? According to Farrell Till, "there is no more 'scientific knowledge' in the Bible than in any other literature of the same era." Recommended Publication Farrell Till advertises _Biblical Errancy_.

Yahweh, The God of Gods Were the Hebrews unique in practicing a strict monotheistic religion? According to Farrell Till, the early Hebrews "believed in polytheism as much as the nations around them." Jehovah, The One and Only God Can somone speak of other gods without affirming their existence? According to Mac Deaver, although the writers of the Old Testament spoke of other gods, they were not polytheistic. The Wisdom of Solomon Was Solomon really as wise as Christians think? Sandra Till says that some of the biggest absurdities in the Bible concern "the so-called wisdom of Solomon." More Problems for Bibliolaters Is the Bible so harmonious that it can only be explained by divine inspiration? Farrell Till writes that "bibliolaters cannot harmonize the Bible without resorting to scenarios so preposterously far-fetched that only the very credulous can believe them."

If It Walks Like a Duck... Till writes, "An especially embarrassing myth for bibliolaters is the quaint little story about `the sons of God' producing a race of terrestrial giants by marrying the daughters of men." Much Ado About Nothing... Steve Gunter offers a rebuttal to the above article, and claims that "Till has simply misread the passage." Inerrancy Publications Several materials on Biblical inerrancy from Skepticism, Inc. Why Didn't They Know? According to Till, "just about everyone who had been associated with Jesus knew that he was supposed to be resurrected except the apostles."
