Also if you only believe certain stories involving the supernatural such as the resurrection of Jesus but discount all others, why do you believe any of it at all?

Not at all. I believe in the resurrection, the miracles, etc.. but I believe that various things such as the Creation account were actually non-literal prophecies rather than history.

That sounds like the second option. It's not like a story can be 'half fact' - it's either fact or fiction. A fictional story based on an actual event is still a fictional story.

I believe 100% but none of the choices represents that sorry, the first choice does not represent that. As Elijah came in spirit as John the Baptist. Peace

How do you believe100% of the bible but not really 100%? 100% is all of it. That would indicate the 1st choice. If you do not believe 100% of it you would choose the 2nd choice.

If you believe 100% of it how old do you believe the Earth is? Just wondering.

You don't get it. There are prophecies in the Bible, your poll does not reflect that. And your second choice has a blasphemy called fiction.
You should just have 100% option. For God there is no time and space.

How do you fail to see this means 100%? And please explain these these prophecies and how they don't fit in with the first choice.
