1. Bats are mammals...WRONG.

Bats are birds...

My favorite is probably "I'm not smart enough"----"I will give you wisdom". Yep, we have been waiting a long time for him to give all this wisdom to some of his closest and most devout supporters. I guess he didn't promise when he would impart this wisdom, just that he "will".

6. Well, god does seem to have a sick sense of humor.

At least if you were to look at all the "evidence". Think of poor Job, being just a pawn in a bet with the devil. Now THAT was sick.

Stark contrast. It's like the Light side and Dark side of the Force.

3. Basically the whole bible?

a bunch of fairy tales some can be interpreted as inspiring and some as "wtf"

I have a problem when people say "reading the 'good parts' of the bible gives you morals"... don't you already have morals to decide what's good and what isn't?

5. I am currently reading

 

"God is not Great" by Christopher Hitchens. He rips the buy-bull apart.

7. Um, reading the 'good parts'????

So does that mean there are "bad parts"? (Oh yeah, I forgot about the Book of Numbers. ) Isn't it all the word of god, and I mean literally?

12. Yes it is the word of God....

It's so obvious it's a hodge podge of lots of oral myths and stuff coddled together over many centuries...

like:
The Iliad
The Mahabharata
Gilgamesh
Arthurian legends
La Chanson de Roland
etc


It's SO obvious!!!

10. "I have not given you a spirit of fear." That's what Fox Noise is for. "All things are possible..."

Well, OK, some things aren't possible, like ending war, elimnating obscene wealth disparity, women getting paid the same as men, etc., etc., etc...
