Quote# 1719

I agree that things started a long time ago because I can think of things when I went to school. One of the first things I can remember being taught is myths and tall tales. I think these teachings at such an early age made me confuse mythology and the tall tales with the bible stories, like Jonah being swallowed by a fish, and David and Goliath. In a child's mind, it's hard to decipher truth from fiction, especially when the biblical stories have supernatural experiences.
I think that's one of the ways secular teaching gets into the minds of children to question what they've been taught.

Yeah, you don't want them asking questions about the bible. What was that about an unexamined faith?

Gee, you don't think there might be a reason that the Bible stories sound so similar to common myths and tall tales, do you?

As for someone that was raised on a minnesota farm, I will say, it takes a while before you can recognize the smell of pigshit over sheep or horse shit. Just like tall tales, one piece of shit looks stunningly like another.

Then we'd better wait with the Bible stories until the kids are old enough to deduce and separate myth from fairy tale, or rather reality from myths, stories and fairy tales.

I've noticed Fundies confuse other myths for Biblical ones to. It's not because you've been taught other stories or those stories being taught as real or linked to Gospels.

You wanna know why you Fundies confuse fairy tales and other myths with your Bible stories? Because you never read your Bible and your Fundie churchs insist on pounding unbiblical dogma into your heads.

Being pulled to Heaven whole to recieve your crown, throne and mansion
Riding beside Jesus in a final battle against Hell
Watching all your enemies being tortured in Hell

Fundie churchs steal from other fables because the Bible is boring shit, it's not schools confusing you idiots it's your fellow members of wing-nut Christianity. We Atheists have little trouble, it seems, in seperating the myths of history from the beliefs of today
