Talk:Prophecies prove the accuracy of the Bible (Talk.Origins)
Forwarded response by user:Brianbleakley
- Denial. The ones in denial about this prophecy are those that do not want to believe that they are actually fulfilling Biblical prophecy. There is no doubt about its fulfillment, since it did not happen in the distant past, but is currently being fulfilled.
So here is a Biblical prophecy that does not fit any of Talk.Origins four categories. Therefore their claim that there are no Biblical prophecies that cannot fit into at least one of their four categories is proven false. Response: II Peter 3:3-6 is not a prophecy at all. It is no more a prophecy than a prediction of a solar eclipse is a "prophecy". It it merely a prediction, based on evidence, inference, and common sense. Peter is suggesting that people will doubt the apocalypse. Because of this they will doubt Biblical histories as well. Any intelligent man could have predicted this.
Proposed Deletion: 2 Peter 3:6
I'd like to recommend deleting 2 Peter 3:6 as well. While it's a nice synopsis of the atheistic mindset it's really not a prophecy at all, and if so, not something that can be said to be clearly defined and specific. I've provided a much better alternative in Daniel 9:25-27 which I think makes the 2 Peter verses unnecessary. --Jzyehoshua 14:04, 12 May 2012 (PDT)
