You added the following to Petitio principii:

"Fortunately, if you are speaking to someone who actually knows what they are talking about, their answer to "How do you know that that God wrote it?" will certainly not be guilty of circular reasoning. Their answer should not merely be "Because the bible says so." They should go on to explain that the Bible has been confirmed, and not contradicted, scientifically, archaeologically, historically, and prophetically. The believer should then explain that this makes the Bible trustworthy and, therefore, God wrote the bible."

I've changed this paragraph in the article because:

  1. The articles in this wiki are to be written from an atheist perspective; atheists would not agree with the above statement. (Perhaps you just phrased it poorly?)
  2. The reasoning you give is an example of a non sequitur: even if everything in the Bible were "confirmed", it still wouldn't be evidence that God wrote it.

If you'd like to try to rephrase your original contribution, please do. But don't write it from a theist perspective. - dcljr 14:20, 7 October 2008 (CDT)
