  1. You know when you read the bible and it says something the ‘christians’don’t like,then it’s a translation problem or not literal thing.Thats why schools on theology and what I like to call cemeteries[seminaries]teach answers to explian why ,not how come.Then the old stand by spirtual not physical.Beats me why’god’ would write something that had to have certian people to tell you what it meant.Or best yet as used by some,it’s been revealed [finaly] like salvery was revealed to the ‘christians’as bad although it was ok’d in the bible as you should obey the master.Go figure?

  2. My goodness. You’ve become as bad as PETA handing out pamphlets to “carnivores” about little bunnies being dismembered, squirting blood all over the little children.

    You should carry some humility toward the word of God. But, then again, you’ll see for yourself someday…

    I think you’ll find it’s “you lot” that are usually running around insisting that the bible is the literal word of ‘im upstairs, not “us”. I think you’ll also find that that’s Russell’s point.

    Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go and attempt to teach quantum mechanics to a chicken, as I need something a little easier to do.

  4. to UnAtheist:
    so are those quotes not actually from the bible?
    do the pictures misrepresent those quotes?
    Humility?
    He’s only helping to bring the word of God (humbly) to the ungodly masses. Praise be to him!

  5. Hello, Stating the Obvious. Yes, the Bible is violent. Is that really so surprising? The Teapot people simply prove the point of how dangerous that text can be in the hands of those who know nothing about it, nor how to handle it. Please.

  6. MM,

    “Those who know nothing about it, nor how to handle it?” and by that you mean: “people who are willing to look past violent passages and “interpret” it for us idiots?” Interpret in this context meaning: Only listen to the parts that make sense in today’s terms, not everything.

    Either it is the word of your god, or it’s not-which is it gonna be? The teapot people are not proving that it’s dangerous in “certain” hands, they’re proving that it’s dangerous, violent and makes no sense in today’s terms, period. Doesn’t matter how you read it, if you think it’s the literal word of an infallible god, you must go out and start stoning all those heathens that work on Sundays. Oh, and make sure that rapists marry their victims. And a plethora of other absurdities.

  7. Terra,

    I do not know how much or how often you have undertaken to read the Bible. I can tell you this: Christians do not make sense of the various voices in Scripture “according to today’s terms;” rather, we make sense of Scripture in light of the Cross- that is the critical piece that interprets the whole.

    Taken apart from that central Event, I can understand how the conglomerate might otherwise seem “absurd.”

    All the best to you-

  8. Anybody see 2 Kings 6:28,29? Seriously, WTF!

    Also, Terra’s last point was logical and relavant as opposed to MM’s last post which could use some explanation- “light of the cross”? Maybe if you were using a lamp or something, you’d have better luck.
