DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE ANY OF THIS?

The Bible has the following either implied or stated as fact:

Our universe was spoken into existence out of nothing…by a floaty thing  in the sky
Plants were created before the sun was.
The first man was created from dust.
The first woman was made from a rib taken from the first man. (we both have the same number of ribs however)
They are in a garden that has ‘magic’ fruit, to make people live forever and be smart.
There is a talking snake.  (did it have legs I wonder)
Incest was used to jump start the population.
There are Angels…good and bad…and demons.
There are giants and Unicorns.
There are witches, wizards and magicians.
There are bad Angels that rape human women.
Human pregnancy/reproduction is possible with no human father. (just like some of the other gods around the time of Jesus).
People can rise from the grave and walk the streets. (Zombies anyone?)
People live as long as 900+ years.
Dinosaurs and people lived together.
God commits genocide by flooding the earth and only saving 8 humans. (apparently the thought of just starting completely over never occurred to Him)
God makes the Sun stay in the sky so a human battle can be completed.
There is a talking, burning bush somewhere in the mountains of the Sinai desert .
There is a talking donkey.
People (other than Moses) can change wooden staffs into live snakes
A man sees Jesus in a beam of light…and all of Jesus’ thoughts and wishes are downloaded to him. (Hollywood Blvd. anybody?)
There is a man that lives inside a fish for 3 days.
Insects are said to have 4 legs (would a God REALLY be this stupid??)
The cure for leprosy is dove blood sprinkled on the toes (REALLY??)
If you position mating livestock in front of a stripped stick, they will produce stripped offspring.

Today we can actually disprove most of these Biblical assertions/stories.

Do mainline Christians really believe any of this is true?  Or is it just the fundamentalists wackos among us.

Interested in family and friends,grandchildren, photography, darkrooms, history, archaeology, scuba diving, computers, software, fast cars, journalism, writing, travel, ecology, news, science, and probably most other subjects you could think of. Did I mention family and friends?? I require iced tea or cold brewed coffee and a internet connection to be fully functional. Sometimes there are just so many words in my head they spill out.

    When I were a whole lot younger, I used to think people made a little more sense. Now as a Full Grown adult I’m really amazed at the Complete & Constant lack of thinking & reasoning that is common place among people who also call themselves “Adult’s”It’s really a Miracle that a society so full of dysfunctional dillusional dimwits can manage to function with out it caving in on itself.Damned near everyone you meet young or old, Black, White, Brown, Yellow, Blue, or Green, Tries to Sell you on some Nonsense about something they’ve Never even seen, & it’s getting Increasingly harder & HARDER, to find clear thinking Rational individuals,who can think, & Think for themselves..

    ummmmm wrong book

    • the word of me says:

      Unicorn: This animal is totally fictitious. None of these are alive today and no scientist has ever found a fossil of one. However, unicorns are mentioned in the King James version of the Bible 9 times, in 5 different books, by at least 5 different authors: by Balaam, Moses, David, Isaiah, and even God himself in the book of Job.

      The giants mentioned in the Bible are Goliath and the Nephilim, but as with Unicorns no physical evidence has ever been found.

    Yeah, isn’t this supposed to be about the Bible?

    • the word of me says:

      It is about the Bible….the things listed (except one) are from the Bible.

      The ‘except one’ is humans and dinosaurs living at the same time.

      The Hebrews had no idea that they existed 65 million years before the Hebrew times.

    That’s the first I’ve heard of unicorns or giants being referred to in the Bible.

    Also, a few minor comments: no one in the Bible lived in a “fish”–it was a whale, a mammal.
    Plus, what is a “stripped” zebra? That threw me off at first, until I realized the writer meaned “striped.” I think there are other errors of reason or Bible sources–certainly “Grammar; Spelling, Etc.” Please, capitalization and quotation marks aren’t supposed to be used for emphasis wherever or just thrown in Wherever!

    I get the gist of it, but to some people, lots of little mistakes mean that the general argument is flawed.

    • the word of me says:

      Ahh, the spelling and grammar police finally found me. O.K. Guilty….sorry, If I remember correctly I was in a real hurry to finish up and take my wife on a date night.

      The only things in the list that wasn’t from the Bible, is the one about man and dinosaurs living at the same time. That is implied by the Genesis stories in the Bible, and places like AiG and ICR flat out saying that humans and dino’s lived at the same time.

      Of course we now know that humans and dinosaurs are separated by about 65 million years

      Jonah and the Fish, Jonah 1:17 Authorized KJV:
      “17 Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.

      The article remains the same….strong
