Stick. Carrot. Ass.
For those of you just joining us now, I'd been giving Christianity and the bible a chance... I wanted to see if it were at all logical or remotely possible for the "word of God" to be true. I was entertaining the idea. So I began reading the bible. [First Bible-Questioning] I don't know how much more of this I'd be able to take. I'm not going to read the whole bible, I have better ways to spend my time. This will probably be one of the last religion-based globulations. There are just way too many loopholes in the bible and there are plenty of people who have already pointed them out. Fighting over the truth is not worth my time. I get too angry when people refuse to remove their blinders and see the light, which actually came from a star, the sun (not from any god), which creates photosynthesis in plants, causing them to grow, with the addition of water, etc. :o
What is the bible to me? The bible is a book (refutable by any 9th grade science text book) that was written by man to explain the things that their ill-equipped, 2000 year-old minds could not comprehend, writing it in such a way to benefit the heterosexual MAN. Then why, later in the bible, are there so many incidents of homosexuality? Even incest...
For example: Genesis 19:5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, so that we may know them. - Wanting some gay sex...
Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. Eh?
Genesis 19:8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof. - That's nice. Give your virgin daughters to a bunch of guys so they don't screw the other guys. I'm sure the girls will be happy with this idea. Turns out Lot, the dad, lied to the guys because the daughters were married and likely to have already been deflowered.
A glimpse of the incest in the bible:
Genesis 19:30-36 And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters. And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth: Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father. - This is great. It's like... reading this in the bible makes incest okay...
Aaand back to the beginning...
What did God do before he created the Earth and how long was he around for? How did God come to be? Was there nothing before Earth? Nothing before 6000 years ago? Did God create those galaxies light-years away as well? The Milky Way? Did God create the other planets and the stars? No. He didn't. Space is so vast, no one in the time the bible was written could even begin to understand the enormity of space. They couldn't incorporate any space business to the bible even if they wanted to.
Let's say Adam and Eve did take some time to "BowChickaWowWow" and Eve had a son, Cain, who killed her second son, Abel. Later, Cain "BowChickaWowWowed" his wife and she had a son, of course, and... WAIT A MINUTE! Woah! Where did this wife come from? Let's see...
1 + 1 = 3, + 1, - 1 = 3. Not 4.
In English: Adam + Eve = Adam, Eve and Cain + Abel - Abel (killed) = Adam, Eve and Cain again... Did Cain screw his mom or his long-lost sister?
Does anyone know what happens when people related by blood mate with each other? They make humans with deformities, physical and/or mental. So if the brothers and sisters and mothers and fathers all had sexual relations with each other, they'd all look like weird little freaks, as would we.
Genesis 4:17, baby. After 4:17, all these sons were springing up from out of the ground, thanks to mysterious unnamed women or their mother, and some of those men took two wives. It's always been okay for men to have more than one wife. :) Since a man usually only has one penis, if they have sex with one of their wives, couldn't you say they're cheating on the other wife, breaking one of the ten commandments? Committing adultery. I'm stretching it, I know.
Leviticus 20:17 And if a man shall take his sister, his father's daughter, or his mother's daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness; it is a wicked thing; and they shall be cut off in the sight of their people: he hath uncovered his sister's nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity.
What makes the Christian god/religion better than any other? What makes it more right? This god or any other god is about as believable to me as the tooth fairy or the boogie man or Zeus.
Christians love using quotes from the bible, especially to answer questions they don't really know the answer to. I long for straight-up answers. They always use the nice quotes and forget about the bad stuff in the bible like the violence, murder, the result of committing homosexual acts, incest, and all those unmerciful consequences of whatever God dislikes, or rather, of what Man dislikes, regardless of the fact that the bible encourages some of those acts sometimes... Oh man. It's just too confusing. Why don't they see this? I feel like slapping certain people around and shaking them, saying, "Wake up! Get a grip!"
I'm going to stick to logic and facts and you can stick to some old man-made book that has more holes in it than Swiss cheese.
If you can't read the bible and really think about what it says, if you keep your blinders on to hide from reason, then all I ask of you is to keep religion to yourself and don't indoctrinate your kids before they've been exposed to, and are old enough to understand, all religions.
Raise an eyebrow or two - Swiss Cheese
But, see, religious people will probably not look into any of these links or the video because it's outside of their blinders.
Eat what you're fed and go where you're being led.
How is the bible bull shit?
