me jest? or Boiledmeatloaf? i wouldn't go so far as to say that the entire bible contradicts itself...but these are some pretty impressive examples i would say!

the challenge i present is...if one believes that everything the bible says is true...then how can two things of contradicting nature be true? and saying a miricle...well...i hope that's not your (not you ricochet...the proverbial your) answer.

the one that i dont get is
that we should love our neighbors and brothers etc

BUT

gay people (and other people who do wierd sex things) should be put to death

huh?
cause you know jesus loves the death penalty

Edit
OHhh man what a site!

hehe My mom is catholic and my dad was jewish... I dont think there was a Bible(or a Talmud for that matter) in our house :lol:

I recently began reading the bible. Genisis down and a shit load more to go. I want to read both Testiments and the Koran(sp?)... just so I can call everyone on their bullshit. I have never bought into main stream religion. Im more interested in Native American ideas actually.

I think the contradictions are due to the Gospels being written by different people. If you read the Da Vinci code its pretty cool when they talk about how Roman Emperor revamped gospels to make Jesus appear more godlike and how they destroyed all the ones that depicted him more as a man. Being raised as a christian I never understood how God was vengefully and jealous then turned nice and loving. But i do believe that religion should not be taken fanatically. Many may not agree with this statement but Many many wars were due to religion.

yeah, that was directed at you..jokingly. it's not a secret that the Bible has many contradictions. after all, it was written by man (even if you think it was dictated by God).

I am not disagreeing with you at all, and I realize not everyone wants to hear the arguments presented. I just don't bother anymore..I live in the Bible Belt and am very far removed from Christianity and organized religion in general. I've learned to be very tolerant of other people no matter how delusional I think they are. it's all good, though. :smile:

yeah ricochet, i agree...I am pretty much removed from the godly thing. I usually resist the discussion. But i have been sparked recently because here in PPD there is a biblical literalist who i found the site for. and then i remembered you all! it get some slight pleasure in shaking things up, and this guy has never met an athiest. He is going to be around here, locked on the same floor as me and i thought i might bring some new perspective to his biblical booty!

Fearfect, i thought you would enjoy it! ha!

You can hardly expect to take much fact from Brown's depiction in The DaVinci Code. While some of his "facts" are present (albeit weird interpretations) much of what he concludes and implies is better described as artistic license than truth.

cool, but does this negate the lessons that could be learned from the bible?

there's a lot of really great philisophical concepts that we could all learn from.

I normally think of the bible as a bunch of short stories with a lesson at each end. the really cool thing is that the more you read, the more you'll see how the concepts flow with each other quite nicely.

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

I do not understand Chrisitanity.

Why would people be damned to an eternity for not believing in Jesus during a finite life? How just is that? What about all the billions of people who have never heard of (nor ever had the chance to hear of) Jesus? Why are these people born destined to damnation?
