I watched Bill Maher’s Religulous the other day, and it reminded me of this infographic I’ve been meaning to share with you. It visualizes 439 contradictions in the Bible, as compiled by Steve Wells for The Scripture Project.
The bars that run along the bottom of the visualization represent the 1189 chapters in The Bible, with the length of each bar corresponding to the number of verses in each chapter. White bars represent the Old Testament and grey bars represent The New Testament. Each arc indicates a contradiction.
