Whacked Bible Contradictions: 2
Mathematical contradictions. Gotta love ’em. You’d think the almighty creator of all (including math presumably) could get his earthly scribes to do simple math correctly.
Not that such things as flat-out, numerical errors will ever stop a true believer from staying the course.
Gen 11:26 — Terah was 70 years old when his son Abram was born.
Gen 11:32 — Terah was 205 years old when he died (making Abram 135 at the time).
Gen 12:4 — Abram was 75 when he left Haran.
Acts 7:4 –This was after Terah died.
Thus, Terah could have been no more than 145 when he died.
2 Kings 24:8 — Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem three months.
2 Chronicles 36:9 — Jehoiachin was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months and ten days in Jerusalem.
I like this next one. Two, consecutive verses.
Gen 8:4 — And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.
Gen 8:5 — And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.
Actually these are all more time errors than math errors. Maybe BibleGod has trouble with that since he “lives outside of time”. (We’ll not bother with the silliness of that concept for now.)
Oh, but here’s a math error for y’all.
1 Kings 7:23 –Then [Solomon] made the molten sea; it was round, ten cubits from brim to brim. A [rope] of thirty cubits would encircle it completely.
Hmmm…. Pi = 3 …. That would have made a lot of calculations easier in school.
