In a discussion last week about christian faith someone laid a mythical source and story on the table as a thrustworty source next to the Bible. It was about the myth of Lillith before Eve. Since the person does not believe in the existence of Adam and Eve. He took the source actually as some truth. That made the discussion kind of difficult for me. Some people see the biblestories also in line with these myths.
The person i had a discussion with accused me of just picking the sources i wanted for defending my christian faith. Actually i had never heard of Lillith but i had a guess because i knew that the person reads a lot about myths, philosophy and extraterrestrial life. He believes that everything is energy and so there is no real evil or pain. This is to draw you a picture of how difficult the discussion was.
My question now is how about dating the sources of Lillith. Are these stories written before or after the biblical sources. Did Abraham believe these stories before he learned to know the Lord? When the person showed me the page of the stroy he said it was a myth. The problem is i think that hetis possitioning the source next to the Bible. How can i engage in a useful conversation?
What to say?
