Reply to "If the Bible Is the..."

Do you study mathematics or logic? Math gets its beauty because its driven from truth and proof. Yet there are paradoxes in math, so why can't there be paradoxes in the Bible?

For example? I'll give some of the paradoxes in math. What is 0^0 (zero to the power zero). One argument says that 0 to any power is 0. Hence 0^0 = 0. But the other argument says that any number raised to the 0 power is 1, so 0^0 = 1. ??? OH NO ALL OF MATH WILL CRUBMLE??? Unless, we don't define 0^0 and make sure not to use this number.

Another is called Russel's Paradox. Let A be the set of all sets that are not members of themselves. Then is A a member of itself? If so, then by the definition of membership in A (not being a member of itself), then A is not a member of A - CONTRADICTION!!!! If not, then A not a member of itself, then again by the definition of the set A, A belongs to itself - CONTRADICTION!!!!!

This doesn't mean that all of mathematics is useless, just like these verses in the Bible shouldn't mean that all of the Bible is useless.
