If God is so offended by poo, why did he create us with a need to do it? King James Version: "13 And thou shalt have a paddle upon thy weapon; and it shall be, when thou wilt ease thyself abroad, thou shalt dig therewith, and shalt turn back and cover that which cometh from thee: 14 For the Lord thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee; therefore shall thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away from thee."
The first edition of the King James Bible contained notes on nearly every page indicating alternate definitions and translations. Over the next 200+ years, FOUR new editions were produced; each one subtracting more of the marginal notes in an effort to reduce “confusion.” By confusion, they really meant doubt- if the KJV was truly god-inspired, as advocates claim, it should have been right the first time. -Rationalatheism (via the-awesome-atheist)
It only takes a simple look at the origins and history of the Bible without the presupposition that it is an infallible holy book to understand how unreliable it is. To claim the Bible is the inspired work of god is like claiming ‘The National Enquirer’ is a legitimate source of news.
The bible hates women. I cannot understand a woman who enjoys the bible and thinks highly of herself. The two don't go together.
