Hex, there are people like that all over the place. In one memorable episode of The Atheist Experience, Matt Dillahunty spoke of a young teen who had emailed in, terrified of questioning his/her faith for fear of becoming a heretic. These are people who value a hallucination over reality.Ask your friend of facts are more important to her than faith, and if faith takes priority, ask her why she looks both ways before she crosses the street!
Hex, it's not that one of you is smarter than the other; it's that one of you is open to new information. She's been told that being open like that is an invitation to hell. Questioning the bible should be no different than questioning any other source: either it has the goods or it doesn't. It doesn't get a free pass just because it's the bible and it doesn't get to prove itself with itself. Evidence talks; bullshit walks.
