Oh, I didn't know the key to salvation would be in riddles. God wouldn't say "Ooooooh, that wasn't literal. Sorry, you go to hell."

Ever wonder why so much in the bible is in proverbs and stories? Like all the ones Jesus tells? It's not literal because it's meant to make people think learn themselves.

You ever read a history textbook?  In the Middle Ages, the Church established colleges to advance knowledge and preserve it from Roman civilization.  Great progress was made in medicine, etc.  Also, monasteries kept ancient literature alive by saving and duplicating it.

If anything the bible should be used as a book of morals. not a book of facts.
A story doesn't have to be true for one follow it's moral.
That being said. Some Atheists read and follow some interpretations in the bible because they think it's morally correct, whether it has happened or not.

... you haven't actually read the Bible, have you?

You know, I can take the jokes, even horribly delivered jokes like the one in this content. Heck, I'll even laugh at some of them. If they're original and well thought out, why not? I want to establish the fact that it isn't the Atheist community voicing its opinions in the form of jokes (albeit terrible ones) that vexes me. It's the blatant ignorance in the comment section.

Listen, I'm an Agnostic-Catholic at best. Personally I feel like I'm still on a journey in my spiritual life, and I really try to keep my eyes open and stay objective to the truth, the absolute truth, which I believe in my heart exists. I don't buy the lies of modern culture; the seductive path of relativism and progressive thought. I believe in a moral universe in addition to the physical one, and that certain moral frameworks are more in sync with the moral universe than others. After scrutinizing and attempting to understand (admittedly at times ) some of the philosophies we've developed over the years, I've found that the morals and values of Christian thought is way superior to, well, basically everything else out there. I'd like to make it clear that I'm talking about traditional, Christian philosophy (specifically intellectual Catholicism).

So, considering this, I have to question the motivation behind your astonishingly pretentious statement. What is it that you find so repudiating in the Bible that makes you think that it isn't a decent moral framework to follow? Atheist or not, most respectable non-believers don't deny that it's high quality philosophy (in addition to the occasional superstitious passage about God's wrath, but that's all in the Old Testament). I don't understand your juvenile, yet cynical comment.

TL;DR: I'm guessing you didn't read this, which is okay. My point summed up is basically this: what makes you find the moral framework that the Bible provides to be unfitting?

I think that you deserve more than just simple thumbs for being the intelligent, honest, and non-apathetic person you are. I think that most atheists don't understand religion of any kind enough to even think about bashing it. And at the same time, a lot of religious people don't even understand their own faith; instead they give themselves a title and say they have faith, yet it's nothing more than simple words and in the end both atheists and religious folk look terribly stupid.

I'm a Christian, but I'm not gonna be pretentious and say I understand Christianity as much as I'd like to. In what I have found, however, is that most people - Christian or not - that get in on the Atheism v. Christianity debate are extremely uneducated about what sometimes is their own faith.

You, my friend, have said the wisest thing that I've heard all week.

It was written by primitive people with barbaric morals. What was okay to do back then/ was advised, will now get you put in prison.
For instance..
www.skepticsannotatedbible.com/says_about/children.html

There is more but Iv been up for 19+ hours so I don't feel like holding your hand. Just look for yourself.

Since questions are being asked...
Hell, its clearly a man made concept, so why threaten kids/none believers with it if you know its ********?

Being gay isn't a choice and it IS natural so why would "god" create something that's automatically going to hell?

If we can point to a time line and say this is around the time when this religion was written, why in the hell would you believe it but disregard more modern religions as false?

Also how does it make you feel knowing the story of jesus parallels so many others before him?

Good. Let's get started.

1. You didn't actually answer my initial question, have you read the Bible? Your reply, although uninsightful, was incredibly revealing. For starters, your animosity towards Christianity makes it so blatantly obvious that your intellectual participation in this discourse is not intellectual at all, but emotional. Your "source(s)" (which I have checked out, thoroughly mind you) are nothing but unoriginal circle jerks, using verses taken out of context and displaying old superstitions from Genesis and Deuteronomy as unequivocal evidence of the "intellectual shackles imposed on us by religion". It is clear to me, and to everyone here, irrelevant of what side they represent, that you are factually and philosophically biased.

2. Really? The documents, these incredibly coherent and historically traceable documents, are obviously man made? See, this is what gets me about Atheists. The utter arrogance of many of you is so infuriating I nearly lose my composure. The fact that you can assert yourself intellectually and morally superior based on the notion that you and your ilk are somehow enlightened in your nihilism is perplexing, and to be frank, quite irritating. Stop it.
As you so astutely point out, it was written by "primitive people with barbaric morals". Okay, I'm game, let's run with that.
These barbaric farmers and shepherds with no education; no understanding of history or philosophy or any academic experience, are out of the blue inspired to come together and write one of the most profound stories in the history of mankind. A story that has endured for two thousand years; a story that has nearly a third of the entire world's population convinced must be true. They come together, and write a story that absolutely does not match the philosophy of the time, or the norms, or the culture. One that sticks out like a sore thumb.

cont.

If you actually read the New Testament, you would see for yourself what its sentiments are; what the message is. But here it is, all wrapped up in an easy to understand sentence for you: it's a message of love. This is truly what separates the New Testament from other philosophies. It is so clear that Jesus had no agenda of power, or money, or fame. No, he truly believed he was the Son of God, and he selflessly endured a fate we cannot even begin to comprehend. These farmers tell a story of a God who lived and died for the salvation of man; they tell a story of a deep agape love, one which we can't possibly fathom. These philosophical concepts are deep when reflected upon on their own, but when one considers where they stem from, well, that's some weird ****.
This is what I've always said about the Bible and the nature of the Bible: I don't know if I believe it, but it truly is some weird ****.
So no, don't come here and say that it's obviously man made, because the only thing you accomplish is coming across as an arrogant prick. I'm not saying it isn't man made, but if it is, it certainly isn't obvious.

3. Thank you for bringing up a grossly reused subject, namely homosexuality. All I will say is this: the New Testament is the new pact, and nowhere in the NT does it state unequivocally that being gay is a sin. There. Happy? Probably not, that's one less banality you can arm yourself with in a debate with an informed person (although somehow I doubt this new data will make you think twice about it in the future).

4. This is a separate discussion. If you would genuinely like to know why I find Christianity superior to other philosophies, and it wasn't just a pointless rhetorical question, then feel free to ask.

5. I feel nothing, because that's a pathetic attempt at a cheap shot (and it's wrong). I'll answer that with a question: How does it feel that basically all the values presented within humanism are basically just recycled Christian values?

I skimmed and went to bible camp for a few years. I am not saying the bible doesn't have good stories or beautiful poetry. It just shouldn't be seen as literal or used as a moral compass, well maybe now it should since they can just remove or edit all of the atrocities and contradictions that were in previous versions.

The fact that the bible is subject to change shows its not perfect. If it was "the word of god" don't you think it should be infallible?

"These barbaric farmers and shepherds with no education; no understanding of history or philosophy or any academic experience, are out of the blue inspired to come together and write one of the most profound stories in the history of mankind. A story that has endured for two thousand years; a story that has nearly a third of the entire world's population convinced must be true. They come together, and write a story that absolutely does not match the philosophy of the time, or the norms, or the culture. One that sticks out like a sore thumb."
Oh boy... First of all how do you know that? Second, the reason why Christianity is so popular is because they lumped a bunch of variations together. You have probably heard this a lot but if you were born in India you would think Hinduism or Islam is the "sore thumb". So why is Christianity the true and others are not?

3. This is apart of the whole being subject to change bit, which is laughable.

4. Yes, I would like to know because I don't see you having a good reason to.

5. It's not a cheap shot, I was being genuine. This is what killed it for me and I wanted to know if this affected you like it did me.

As for the stories (people) that closely resemble Jesus but came before..
Romulus
Buddha
Dionysus
Horus
Krishna
Heracles
Glycon
Odysseus
Zoroaster
Attis of phyrgia

It's fine as a moral guide, it's when people take it literally is the problem, they're just stories, just like Aesop's tales, they didn't happen, but they have a lesson.

I don't think many people believed Mary either at the time, but this is one of the things I've thought for Joseph many times. It would be really difficult for me to go through with marrying my fiance who was pregnant with a child that wasn't mine. That takes dedication.
