Absolute Reality

This article is in response to "Bible comprehension" -> http://www.news24.com/MyNews24/Bible-comprehension-20140813 (First post, not sure how to add links)

I am a Christian, and yet I say good article. Good question too. It goes beyond bible interpretation. It is a battle of realities. Which reality is the real reality? (Just as you ask, which interpretation is valid). Who has the right credentials to claim the true reality? Just as you ask who has the right credentials to claim the true interpretation of the bible? Like you see no one qualified enough to claim to true interpretation of the bible, I also see no one qualified enough to claim the true reality.
Even if approached with scientific methods (and there is no scientific method to prove the beginning of existence, I mean nothing exploded to everything is just pure nonsense to me),  still one asks the same question, who has authority to claim that the scientific interpretations of existence are the REAL ones?
The big bang theory and evolution (not all of evolution is incorrect) claiming our ancestors were but mud is not science. It is in fact a religion, it is based on believing it, not knowing/proving. It cannot be observed (anymore anyway).In this article, I am not against the NOTHING can explode into existence (but I sure am against this), I am simply asking, why should we take this interpretation. Also, lets not forget that this existence theories have also suffered many interpretations and revisions. Anyway, it is a theory, by definition, a theory is not a fact. We just grow more confident on a theory based on repeated experiments (we cant experiment big bang though), and grow the body of knowledge overtime. 
I am not here saying I know someone (or am that person) who has the perfect credentials to say which is the correct interpretation of the bible. I am here saying, which is the correct version of reality? This leads to saying, which is the absolute reality? Is reality an absolute thing? 
In my reality (incorrect as it may be) God does exist. In your reality (scientific as it may be) God does not exist. There is a clash in our realities, and the 100th generation from our's will still view things differently. 
Though we may differ (whether in interpretation of the bible, or in the bigger picture - REALITY) in realities, the question the remains is which one is the real one and who has the credentials to lay a claim on it, and why?
We may have different answers on this, but this is my answer: A person or entity with the highest wisdom, power, knowledge, and authority has the right credentials to say what is really real (including the interpretation of the bible as per your article). In your world, I am guessing there is no such person. In my world, this becomes one of the reasons why there is God.

You do not understand the meaning of "scientific theory". Gravity is also a theory. This article answers nothing and merely shifts the onus to atheists, textbook strawman argument. Next

" I mean nothing exploded to everything is just pure nonsense to me" Of course of course. And how do you feel about a talking donkey?

Head meets wall... Over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over... Head so far up the clouds @ss, lost track with reality. (IE thinks there are more than one reality... There is only reality, and how you choose to bastardise it in your head for your own delusional peace of mind...) Shame...

You say: "...is my answer: A person or entity with the highest wisdom, power, knowledge, and authority has the right credentials to say what is really real (including the interpretation of the bible as per your article). In your world, I am guessing there is no such person. In my world, this becomes one of the reasons why there is God." It is a common human response when they reach the boundary of their own knowledge or understanding, to evoke a god to fill that gap. Mankind has been doing it throughout the ages and as human knowledge expands, so the god is pushed ever further out to new areas that are unknown. Taking science right out of the equation, dismiss it and all theories outright and you are still left with the un-provable fantasy that is religious belief. It is man's buffer against the fear of the unknown.

I agree with you and observe that the atheist support group (Hoekie vir Eensame Atheists) is in full force again with their standard modus operandi and argument: You are stupid, I am clever, eff off. As for me, I like your article. Well written.

Humpty, unbelievably stupid Dumpty sat on the wall and wrote this: -The big bang theory and evolution (not all of evolution is incorrect) claiming our ancestors were but mud is not science.- Now they wonder why so many educated people in educated countries become atheists. How can one person be that stupid and still be able to breath?

Sounds Like your god has made it incredibly difficult to figure out if he is real or not with all these different realities you speak of. Why on earth would it be this difficult ?? So just because I view things differently to you I have the misfortune of spending eternity in Hell ?? This seems a bit unfair.

Just becuase you don't know the answers, doesn't mean that therefore god did it. Start firstly by admitting to yourself that the Bible is written by humans and secondly by asking yourself if there is or has ever been a human on the earth who was capable of knowing stuff that you could never know as a human yourself ie was it from a different species or what? If not why should you believe what is in the Bible any more than you believe what you read in a newspaper or from someone like Oscar Pistorius? Religion is entirely MANMADE from mans imagination therefore it cannot be supernatural.
