Nothing irritates me more then listening or reading quotes from the bible. The bibles knowledge of world affairs is limited to the knowledge of the men who wrote it. Saying they where inspired to write the bible does not make it real.
Common sense distates.... that the possiblity..... of there being some diety in the form of a man (who floats around in outer space), waving his hand to instantly create planets is comical.
The men who wrote the bible preached this foolishness... as they conned people out of there money and other valuables. Even today with our advance knowledge in science there are still many people who defy reason and common sense. To believe in this stuff. Where is the proof of the bible... Dosen't exist does it!! Lacking proof preacher offer threats instead. Believe what we preach and give us your money. Or you will suffer torture and burning for all eternity. Pathetic attempt to steal your money. It is time for all humanity to move forward and put all fanciful religions behind them. Embrase proven science.
