That's presumptuous. The Bible can be weighed up the same as any testimony.The fact is says so in the bible is not valid evidence.
Christ had to come when the Roman Empire was in power. And the miracles all are tied up with him.There are any number of much more reasonable explanations other than literally a suspension of the laws of nature.
Again, isn't it truly bizarre that all these miracles occurred only just slightly before (relative to the entire history of humanity) the advent of video cameras?
Where is the moral value in making people have to believe in unreliable bronze age eyewitness testimony instead of waiting a few thousand years and letting them witness it directly? God waited 198,000 years after the first humans existed, why not wait a few thousand more instead of making people rely on faith?
So no its not bizarre at all. Secondly, God intended that people would rely on the testimony of those eyewitnesses (who then penned the gospels, which form part of the bible).
