The Bible is NOT the word of God. Not even close.
I have a problem with the Bible on many levels. One is that it is just plain bullshit, but more than that is that people believe that bullshit and do so with full knowledge that it is bullshit. I know that many xtians would like to argue the point with me over that, but it is still true. I’ll explain.
Onto the fairy story: God is omnipotent and omniscient. God made us. God gave the Ten Commandments to Moses. <—- Right there. That’s the problem. God, in his infinite wisdom gave his message to a man he knew to be fallible. God knew we were corruptible. Also, he only gave us the Ten Commandments. He didn’t give us the Bible. He didn’t give us any of those stories. They were written at least 3o years after Jesus was thrown off the island. None of those guys even knew Jesus. So we have a book that is supposed to be the word of God that God didn’t write, that tells us stories of Jesus by people that didn’t even know him. Not to mention that many of those stories contradict each other. Oh, oh, mustn’t forget that there is no proof as to who actually wrote the Bible either. That too must be taken of faith.
If you hired a biographer to write your story would you accept this when they handed it to you? If you were the publisher, would you accept a book so badly written and risk losing money on it? Of course not, so why would god accept such a hodge podge of contradictions, outright lies, behaviour that is not only violent, genocidal, petty, racist and misogynistic, but downright incestuous and pornographic in parts? Not only would a god not want to have this be his words, but I would think that any intelligent being would have put a stop to it before it spread. We sue people for slander for far less, so why would a god allow it?
The Bible is an insult to any intelligent human being that is really honest with themselves and not willing to give up their freedom, self respect, morals, ethics and their right to self determination to a non-existent figment of the imagination of some power hungry, desert dwelling freak bent on domination of all he surveyed and beyond.
If, and I doubt it, but if there are any xtians reading this, please, for just one day put aside your ‘beliefs’ and read the Bible from the beginning as if you’d never read it before. Most probably haven’t, which is a plus for them really. Read it with an open mind, a critical mind and think about how unlikely what you are reading really is. Do not equate anything you read to what you already know and tell me what you think about a book written in this manner that purports to tell you how to live your life and what to tell and do to your children.
THINK ABOUT IT AND LET ME KNOW
