Some skeptics of the Bible even say that the renowned man (son of God) Jesus Christ never really lived on earth 2,000 years ago, thus pronouncing that the detailed eyewitness accounts of the life of Jesus written in the books of the New Testament are lies, ‘though with no proof at all that any of the New Testament consists of false statements, rendering specious the notion that Jesus known as the Messiah was not real on earth.
Many other skeptics realize that to doubt the historicity of the man called Jesus Christ in the Holy Land 2,000 years ago would be tantamount to a denial of the existence of Julius Caesar or Plato, so they reluctantly grant that he lived there then, but deny the accounts about his miracles and of course the ancient scriptures of the Old Testament leading up which detail the generations of human history all the way back to Adam and Eve.
Now here is where the skeptism of biblical history comes into play even among purported believers of the Bible, those professed Christians who say that the early portions of Old Testament scripture cannot be true because science has (supposedly) proven them false. Yet when you ask those doubting the book of Genesis and even the books of the Bible which immediately follow where then in the Bible does really history begin to be reported, they gasp, pause, giving you that blank stare, then probably saying nothing of any coherence.
Incoherence from Christians who say they don’t believe Genesis is no surprise because to name a person in the clear geneology back from Jesus into Genesis requires that they explain what’s supposedly wrong with the father of that person in the clear geneology which they would name? Do you see the slippery slope? This is why atheists have such an easy time intellectually against professed Christians who doubt Genesis; the atheists ask “if you can’t believe Genesis then on what basis should you believe the rest of what is called holy scripture?”
The reality of the Bible is that none of holy scripture can be demonstrated false, even Genesis, where the global flood of Noah’s time is born out by geology and paleontology seeing the Deluge here http://globalflood.org and its fossil record http://detectingdesign.com/fossilrecord.html, with the timeline and cause of the Ice Age according to the biblical template and the geneologies explained here http://genesisveracityfoundation.com, the science of the future, old school man.
