"Minister and self-described “public advocate for the Christian faith” Dr. Tom Dickson assured Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt on Sunday that there was ample evidence for the story of Jonah living in the belly of a fish for three days and other Bible tales to convince atheists.
During a Fox & Friends segment titled “Keeping the Faith,” Earhardt pointed out that 19 percent of Americans were skeptics who did not believe that the Bible was sacred, up from 10 percent in 2011.
Dickson explained that many people were turned off by the Bible because it had been used as a “tool for oppression and slavery and violence.”
But he argued that those were “universals of human culture, you don’t need the Bible to have war, violence and slavery. They were there in Greece and Rome before the Bible.”"
