Business Insider Discredits Itself

I read an article last December (2016) that confused me. It appeared on the Business Insider website. What I found confusing is that Business Insider, as noted on its “About” page, “is a fast-growing business site with deep financial, media, tech, and other industry verticals.” So why, then, would it feature an article and video by Joe Avella discrediting the Bible? From where does its expertise in this matter come? Since when does a publication named Business Insider have anything to do with religious matters? Unless the subject is how the clergy are bilking the congregation or how the clergy scandalous mismanage donations for their own personal profit, it seems completely out of place that a business-focused publication would run a commentary on the Bible's authenticity.

I wrote Mr. Avella, but he never responded. Just for the record, the article and accompanying video play into general misconceptions whose only intent is to discredit the Bible. Contrary to those claims is much more authoritative research helping readers to appreciate the rich value that the Bible brings.
