I can take text out of context to, "The more statistically improbable a thing is, the less can we believe that it just happened by blind chance. Superficially the obvious alternative to chance is an intelligent Designer." -Richard Dawkins.   
   
The whole quote gives a vastly different meaning to Dawkins' words.   
In regards to the bible you also have translation issues from Hebrew and Greek, poetic language, metaphors, an unbelievably varied culture from our own and context. There are so many variables completely ignored in internet quotes of the bible that it would probably take a an entire semester to give a basic understanding of each missing attribute.   
Everyone is entitled to an opinion but please refrain from backing it with stupidity and laziness.
