What do you value more, truth or faith?

I spent 17 years of my life using mental gymnastics to justify what I believed. I was living a mental simulation where god was real. this greatly skewed my perspective on reality.

to any one that believes these verses were taken out of context or misinterpreted please read the following verse

2 Peter 1:20" "no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation."

And if you think this is bad wait till you see what Islam has to say, here I'll translate for you: KELL DA INFEDELS. THERE IS NO GOD BUT ALLAH!!! In all seriousness I have nothing against religious people but there is something messed up by the people who were writing those books at the time.

Since so many people are going on a "DAT'S DA OT ST00PID!" spaz attack, you might want to add in what Jesus said about how not a single letter of the law shall pass away. ;)

Old teatament: God is an insecure Asshole.
New Testament: God is still an insecure Asshole but does a better job at hiding it.

Why do you hate us what did we do to you atheists?
Spooneads Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2014  New member
... We don't hate you.

We don't hate you, we just see a lot of problems with the Bible. We don't directly come and attack you(at least the majority of us, I don't want to speak for all atheists), we just pick apart laugh at some of the rather messed up logic in religion. It's rather entertaining, some of the stuff the Church comes up with. I don't understand why you would believe in this book, which could be easily made up, has hundreds of logical fallacies and often shows God ordering people to murder outright, when you could agree with the reason of thousands of educated people working with science? I think you really should stop worrying and enjoy your life <3

Dude I'm not worring and the reason I believe in the bible is because it's an acient text made by 1000 of differnt authors all believing the same thing and I do enjoy my life because my savior died for me and you and the rest of the wolrd also Christians have allot more fun then the awesomest rave party

The fact that it's an ancient text kinda makes it rather unreliable. I don't know if you've noticed, but the age of Catholicism was a period of rather large decline in the rate of scientific discoveries.
I really hope you ignore the Exodus and most of the Old Testament, there is really some messed up stuff in there.
Clearly laughing at some of the stuff humanity thinks up is a bit more fun than sitting in church on Sundays having a 'rave party'.
lol this argument is hilarious

Eh I'm going to pray for you and my church is not in the 17th century it's in the 21st

That's thoughtful, but it would be pointless to pray for me when it won't really do anything.
the 17th century was only a few hundred years ago. I think you should do some research on your own religion.According to your religion, the New Testament describes Jesus's life, which apparently happened around 2000 years ago, the start of the calendar. The New Testament ended way before the 17th century and by then they had ditched most of the gruesome and inhumane practices. Whether you believe in the 17th century God or the 21st century God doesn't really make a difference. The Bible is still the same book whether you read it in the 17th century or now. Some rather disturbing notions it contains, too.
