Wow, The Bible Sucks. . .

So, I've been reading the Bible. . . After the recent blog swap over at the evangelical atheist, I decided that I knew much less than I had once beleived about religion. My philosophy is to Know Your Enemy, which brings me back to the Bible. With school and everything it's been slow going, but I have learned alot. And it's all pretty much made me more of an atheist.

Just looking at the Bible as a book, I don't particularly care for it. The plot meanders along its way, not particularly caring about the readers interest. The main character seems to greatly change from one chapter to the other, and indeed seems to be a totally different person on occasion, striking people one minute, giving them unequeled wealth the next.

Perhaps the greatest example of God's weakness of character is The Book of Job.

So God had an ultimate servant. And when I say ultimate, I mean super-best--vital-critical-absolutely definatley totally awesome. This was the cheese. In fact he was above the cheese, beyond it, over it. He was so far ahead of the cheese that, in comparison with it, he was beyond the horizon. His name was Job.

Now one day Satan and God were talking:

And the LORD said unto Satan "From where do you come?" So Satan answered the LORD and said, "From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it."

The the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?"


So Satan, being the eternal ass that he is, says that Job is only loyal becuase God protects him. So God, being weak, essentially says "Go, knock urself out, make Job's life a living hell, but do not harm his body. See if he stops beleiving." And the Devil does so. By the time he's finished, Job's house is gone, his possesions are gone, his wife is gone, his 7 sons and 3 duaghters are gone, but he remains faithful. Whattta dope.

Then Satan and God talk again. God basicly makes fun of the Devil for failing, and Satan says it was just becuase Job wasn't physically hurt. So God once again crumbles, he lets Satan do whatever the hell he wants with Job, and Job gets totally screwed.

In the end Job does get his house back, his possesions a different wife, and 10 different children.

So what we can see from this is that, were I to beleive in God, the Bible itself says that serving him loyally ends up totally fucking up your life. It also shows me the hollow see throughness of the Christian religion. Well, I read part of the Bible, and boy does it suck.

No book in history has ever caused as much destruction of good, innocent people as the Bible.

It is utter bull. Yet people are willing to kill their mamas for it.

To say the Bible sucks is the understatement of the century.
