I'm not a spambot
Why can't fundies understand that not everybody believes in their God? In their fantasy world, even people of other faiths, or no faith at all, have to secretly believe in God "deep down inside." Bullshit.

No, I don't want to read it because I don't want my IQ lowered about fifty points.

My isn't scared to read the Bible, my has read the Bible. My went to a strict Roman catholic school. My would suggest everybody read the Bible just like my would suggest everybody read Mein kampf. My thinks reading such things help you to understand exactly what it is that is wrong with them.

Tires of the Fundies
"You're" not "Your". I am assuming you were home schooled.

No, I have read it. It did not come across as god's word but as something based off myths and legends. Kind of what it is.

Oh, I love reading the bible!
It's the world's best joke book!
2/10/2008 6:59:16 PM
meh, why not read it, it's a good old novel right there.

Actually It *would* scare me if the Bible really was the word of god because that would mean the universe was ruled by a brutish, infantile and unintelligent ogre.

On the contrary - I have read the Bible several times, and not only am I not afraid of it, but I still think it's complete bullshit.

I've read parts of it. Very boring.

It has an awful lot of sex and violence. I was shocked and appalled.

I read the bible when I was seven.
It's crap for idiots.

The monster under my bed can whup your retarded god's ass any sabbath of the year, blivet. His book sucks hind tit as well, but what do you expect from a retarded and probably illiterate god?
Stupid fundies, assuming that their imaginary goat-fuck tribal chieftain is the Alpha and Omega.

I've read it. In fact I've read it in several versions, still have my
about the house somewhere, and I think my thesis notes on the
Song of Solomon
are in a box in the attic.
And I still don't believe a word of it, anymore than a graduate in English Lit. who finaled in Joyce believes there really was a man called Leopold Bloom who did all the things written about him.

Actually, I read the Bible; reading and actually thinking about the heinous things it said is what cured me of being a Christian.

Meh! Read it, the hero dies in the end.
Sorry about the spoiler folks!

"Your scared to read the Bible because you know it is God's word and your afraid to see that."
The absurdity is that more Atheists than Christians have read the Bible in its entirety. It speaks volume. that Atheists actually encourage Christians to read their own Bible from cover to cover. Nothing produces Atheists faster.

I read it.
You're illiterate, by the way.
2/14/2015 7:59:11 PM
Just the opposite in fact. More Atheists than Christians have actually bothered to read the Bible in its entirety. Which is why we're Atheists.
2/15/2015 1:04:43 AM
My scared? No, my bored. I tried to read it, but got bored around all the "begat", and just skimmed through the rest.

You WISH it scared us. I've resourced it many times, that means reading parts of it. Probably more than you've done, certainly more than fundamentalists commonly do.
People like Hitchens, Harris and Dawkins have corrected Christian debaters on scripture (love that, one of them rare moments of bitchslap you get watching these debates.) by either correcting the wordage or pointing out the context of it's actual meaning. Also these guys, Especially Hitch, are very well read and catch them claiming non-Christian wisdom as Biblical.
Matt Dillahunty and the cast of Atheist Experience podcast is a great place to hear these smackdowns too.

Most Atheists I know have read the bible more fully and completely then most Christians I know.
2/15/2015 9:51:57 AM
In fact, I often thought I'd take the cheap school give out Bibles, cut the spine binding away to separate the pages, mix them up in a big rubbermade bin, come up with profound religious questions like:
How do we know God loves us?
What is his plan for Earth?
Why did he make us?
or other stupid shit like that, pull out a random page and a random verse on it and post it on a Christian website, once a day.
Because I think this is how some do it with how often they use a verse that doesn't answer the question in anyway.
