Genesis Chapter 1:
Light was created on the first day (Verse # 3-5)
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
 
The cause of light, stars and the sun etc. was created on the fourth day (verse # 14-19)
14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
 
How can the cause of light be created on the fourth day later than the light which came into existence on the first day?
 
How can there be a night and day without the earth?
9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
 
The above verses 9 to 13 says that the earth was created on the third day and the verses 3 to 5 says that the night and day was created on the first day. The day depends upon the rotation of the earth.  Without the earth created, how can we have a night and day on the first day?
 
Also the above verses 9 to 13 says that the earth was created on the third day and the verses 14 to 19 says that the sun and the moon were created on the fourth day.  Today science tells us that the earth is part of the parent body the sun.  It cannot come into existence before the sun.
 
How can the vegetation come into existence without sunlight, and how can they survive without sunlight?
11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
 
The verses 11 to 13 says that the vegetation, the herbs the shrubs, the trees were created on the third day And the sun, according to the verses 14 to 19, was created on the fourth day.
 
Almighty God created the Heavens and the Earth in six days
31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
 
Today science tells us that the universe cannot be created in a 24 hour period of six days.
 
The world will perish or the world will live forever?Hebrews Chapter 1:
10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: 11 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
 
Psalms Chapter 102:
25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. 26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:
 
Psalms Chapter 78:
69 And he built his sanctuary like high palaces, like the earth which he hath established for ever.
 
Ecclesiastes Chapter 1:
4 One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.
 
Which of the above verses are correct?  The earth will perish or remain for ever?

Other Errors

 

1. Purification After Childbirth!: Leviticus, Ch. No. 12

1 The LORD said to Moses, 2 "Say to the Israelites: 'A woman who becomes pregnant and gives birth to a son will be ceremonially unclean for seven days, just as she is unclean during her monthly period. 3 On the eighth day the boy is to be circumcised. 4 Then the woman must wait thirty-three days to be purified from her bleeding. She must not touch anything sacred or go to the sanctuary until the days of her purification are over. 5 If she gives birth to a daughter, for two weeks the woman will be unclean, as during her period. Then she must wait sixty-six days to be purified from her bleeding.

 

A woman remains unclean for double the period, if she gives birth to a daughter, as compared to a son!!!

 

2. The Test for an Unfaithful Wife!: Book of Numbers, Ch. No. 5

27 If she has defiled herself and been unfaithful to her husband, then when she is made to drink the water that brings a curse, it will go into her and cause bitter suffering; her abdomen will swell and her thigh waste away, and she will become accursed among her people. 28 If, however, the woman has not defiled herself and is free from impurity, she will be cleared of guilt and will be able to have children.

 

3. Cleansing From Infectious Skin Diseases!: Leviticus Ch.No. 14
1 The LORD said to Moses, 2 "These are the regulations for the diseased person at the time of his ceremonial cleansing, when he is brought to the priest: 3 The priest is to go outside the camp and examine him. If the person has been healed of his infectious skin disease, 4 the priest shall order that two live clean birds and some cedar wood, scarlet yarn and hyssop be brought for the one to be cleansed. 5 Then the priest shall order that one of the birds be killed over fresh water in a clay pot. 6 He is then to take the live bird and dip it, together with the cedar wood, the scarlet yarn and the hyssop, into the blood of the bird that was killed over the fresh water. 7 Seven times he shall sprinkle the one to be cleansed of the infectious disease and pronounce him clean. Then he is to release the live bird in the open fields.

 

4. A bat is not a bird.  But sadly the Bible says:

These are the birds you are to detest and not eat because they are detestable: the eagle, ... any kind of heron, the hoopoe and the bat (Leviticus 11:13-19)

You may eat any clean bird. But these you may not eat: the eagle, ... any kind of heron, the hoopoe and the bat. (Deuteronomy 14:11-17)

 

5. Rabbits do not chew their cud

The rabbit, though it chews the cud, does not have a split hoof; ... (Leviticus 11:6)

 

6. Insects have more than four legs.

All flying insects that walk on all fours are to be detestable to you. There are, however, some winged creatures that walk on all fours that you may eat: ... Of these you may eat any kind of locust, katydid, cricket, or grasshopper. (Leviticus 11:20-22)

 

7. Snakes don't eat dirt:

So the Lord God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, ... You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust..." (Genesis 3:14)

 

8. Camels have split hooves:

There are some that only chew the cud or only have a split hoof, but you must not eat them. The camel, though it chews the cud, does not have a split hoof; it is ceremonially unclean for you. (Leviticus 11:4)

 

9. The earth isn't stationary as once thought:

... The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved. (Psalms 93:1)

... The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved. (1 Chronicles 16:30)

He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved. (Psalms 104:5)

Joshua said to the LORD in the presence of Israel: "O sun, stand still over Gibeon, O moon, over the Valley of Aijalon. (Joshua 10:12) .

 

The church used these passages to convict Galileo of heresy.

 

10. The earth is not flat, as once thought. It has no corners at all, and "ends of the earth" is not typically interpreted as from outer space:

... he will assemble the scattered people of Judah from the four quarters of the earth. (Isaiah 11:12)

Oh Lord, ... to you the nations will come from the ends of the earth... (Jeremiah 16:19)

... and there before me stood a tree in the middle of the land. Its height was enormous. The tree grew large and strong and its top touched the sky; it was visible to the ends of the earth. (Daniel 4:10-11)

  

11. Earth has pillars!:

3 When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm. (Psalms 75:3)

6 He shakes  the earth from its place and makes its pillars tremble. (Job 9:6)

 

12. All trees bearing fruits bearing seeds are food!:  Genesis Ch. No. 1

29 Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.

 

Today, even a layman knows that there are several poisonous plants like wild berries, plants containing alkaloid - that which if you ingest, or if you eat there are high possibilities you may die. How come the Creator of the universe and the human beings does not know that if you eat these plants that you may die?

 

13. Unicorn Existed!:     Isaiah, Chapter 34, Verse No.7

And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.

 

14. The Son is 2 years older than the father! Chronicles II

20 Thirty and two years old was he (Jehoram) when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem eight years, and departed without being desired. Howbeit they buried him in the city of David, but not in the sepulchres of the kings.  (Chapter 21)

1And the inhabitants of Jerusalem made Ahaziah his youngest son king in his stead: for the band of men that came with the Arabians to the camp had slain all the eldest. So Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of Judah reigned. 2 Forty and two years old was Ahaziah when he began to reign. (Chapter 22)

The father was 40 years old when died and the son was 42 years old when started to reign.  Even in Hollywood film, you will not be able to produce it. ­­­­­

Also 2 Kings 8:26 - Two and twenty years old was Ahaziah when he began to reign; 

Was Ahaziah 22 years old or 42 year sold?

Volumes after volumes on errors in the Bible can be written.  We invite everybody to accept the truth in one true God.  Remember Krishna is Hindu god, Buddha is Buddhist god, and Christ is Christian god.  Why believe in so any human gods.  Believe in one powerful omnipotent and omniscient God who does not cry out loud from the cross My God, my God why have you forsaken me!

Mark Ch. No. 15 34And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?"--Which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?")  How can God leave God!

 

Also Jesus (peace be upon him) never preached Christianity.  He lived as a Jew and died as a Jew.  He was never born on 25th of December and he never ate pork.  May Allah guide all the Christians, Jews, Hindus, and all the other non-Muslims to the only true path.  Ameen.
