I was in some forum and I just had the craziest itch. I posted to a person’s thread about religion and all that and I write this.

The. Bible. Is. Flawed.

Reason number one:
Written by humans.
No one, absolutely no one, can successfully argue that humanity isn’t flawed.

Humans can be evil, if they so choose. Their decision to choose evil may not seem evil to them. Perfect example, Prop 8.

So, what is to stop them from adding or rewriting the Bible. Perfectly possible. Besides God of course, who still hasn’t struck me down from cursing his name over 1000 times, that “Don’t Test God,” shit won’t work as a comeback, I’d only tell you God was a liar then, ’cause He said he would strike me with lightning…

I will update my post later, seeing as it is difficult to get the origins of the Bible that isn’t recorded in the Bible, meaning who it has been passed to and through over the years and what has happened to it.

But, try and disprove the speculation that somewhere along the time line, humans might have gotten a little cocky and added to the Bible, changed it, rewrote it, or,  perhaps, try and disprove the speculation that maybe Humans weren’t as perfect as they appear in the Bible, oh wait, they aren’t at all. So, people could have done evil actions and didn’t listen to God when they were writing a book, or were not satisfied with the rules and wanted to change them. Anyone could be responsible. There are certainly times in the Bible’s life where it was restricted from the public eye.

I’m pretty sure Humans wrote the Bible. They are the ones that did the action.

Reason number two:
God.
He is a jealous God, no one can worship another god but him. That makes me wonder if there are more than one god, since He states in the bible, There are no other gods before or after Him, Rev. 22:13 “I am the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last,” yada yada yada, anyway, why then, should He make the first commandment “You shall not have any other gods before me.”
Clearly he is demanding us to not worship another god. He is, after all, Jealous.
If he is Jealous, wouldn’t that make him a prideful person, it seems to me, from Exodus 20, that he is a very proud being, most of the commandments are about Him.

If you think God means to not put time and energy into items or other people more than Him, you are wrong. That is the second commandment, “You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.”

We make crosses and put them over our beds, we make prayer beads, fish stickers,
NOTW merchandise…

Don’t make an idol in the form of anything in heaven above, on earth, or in the water…

Hm..

So, God clearly says there are other supreme beings, you just are not allowed to worship those ones ’cause they won’t lead you to a blissful hell.

‘Kay.

“You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,” verse five goes on to say.

Why is He punishing children for the mistakes their fathers made?
That seems rather unloving.
The children of the father are being punished by God for their father’s sin…

And besides, I’d hate God too if He still was the way He was in the First Testament, oh wait, Exodus is in the first testament…

But verse six makes it all up for it ’cause God’ll love only the next thousand generations. Well, actually, I am using the Biblegateway site you said you are using NIV from, or something? Anyways, they have “generations” in curly brackets, {, this could very well mean that they added that word. I guess I’ll never find out what God said after “thousands.”

He demands that we work six days straight and then on our ONLY DAY OFF we give it all to Him. The Sabbath Day. Yeah, he seems pretty prideful, a little egotistical?
Sure, it could only be a reflection of when God made the entire world in six days and rested on the seventh, but God is supposed to be perfect and all powerful, why did He rest anyways? Couldn’t He do it in one day if He was ALL-powerful and ALL-knowing and omnipresent?

Besides, He is ALL-everything, wait, whoa, all-everything? Is he all-knowledgeable?  If yes, then He must know how to make a rock that is so heavy, not even He can move it, right? But then, He is ALL-powerful, why can’t He move it? If He can move it, why isn’t He ALL-knowledgeable enough to know how to make an immovable rock?

Ugh, circular reasoning gives me headaches.

To sum up the rest of the commandments, they are all about Him, well, more than half I should say.

Besides the hated “honor your parents” commandment,
There is the “Thou shalt not murder,”

God failed. Let us see, the first murder He committed was a genocide of 20,000,000 people. The Great Flood and Noah.

He hated those people for their “wicked acts.” Sure, they may have offended him by having orgies in temples and churches or something, but isn’t He a forgiving God? Oh, not until he replicates himself by impregnating a girl without cumming in her and then kills himself. Yes, He did. He allowed Judas to betray Him, He allowed the death, no, He went to it. I guess suicide is okay in the Bible. It isn’t mentioned ONCE!

God didn’t forgive 20,000,000 people because they were having sex and doing drugs and well, I guess I would be pissed too if I didn’t want the people I created to worship gods that didn’t help at all.

But, the flood was before the ten commandments, God is still in the clear.

His next major murdering, after the commandments of course, was 3,000. That is better, a lot of improvement from previously killing over 20,879,003 beforehand.

Still not forgiving I guess.

Overall, His murders in both books add up to 24,644,205 exactly. This is a fact from the blog [url=http://dwindlinginunbelief.blogspot.com/2010/04/drunk-with-blood-gods-killings-in-bible.html]Dwindling in Unbelief[/url] if you would like to check.

“Thou shalt not commit adultery.”

Then don’t impregnate an unmarried, betrothed 16 year old, then, God.

“Thou shalt not steal.”

Hm, nope, can’t think of God stealing.

“Thou shalt not bare false witness against thy neighbor.”

Hm, has God lied?

He did tell us He was jealous, that s pretty truthful, but He also tells us he is ALL-powerful and ALL-knowledgeable, but then there is that whole rock thing, and well, this one is on the wall.

Wait, He did tell us to not worship other gods but then He also told us there were no other gods besides him.

“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

Don’t covet? What does THAT mean?

Using google’s tools and typing in the search engine, “define: covet” I find;
“To wish for with eagerness; to desire possession of, notably enviously”
But changing “covet” to “jealousy,” the first listing again is
“covetous: showing extreme cupidity; painfully desirous of another’s advantages,”
It uses covet to explain jealousy, (first commandment).
Pretty important if it is the first commandment, explaining why He is a jealous God, no, just that He is and don’t worship anyone else, plzkthnx.

I can’t follow rules that a God has demanded me to follow if He can’t follow them all Himself.

So, Humans and God are the two main reasons why the Bible is flawed, should be enough reason to throw it away altogether and start living for each other, for the earth, for the betterment of humanity, then to live for an imperfect god.

Try and disprove my post. Kudos to you if you read it all, but sorely disappointed if you can’t try and argue with me, if you try and attack my ways of reasoning, I will only be more disappointed.”

I can’t wait for your comments.
