Could it be that your eyes are not opened, because of whats really going on inside?
Surely now you will tell me this is not the case, and the first liar doesn't stand a chance.
I will stand up here and take a risk that SOI will accuse Me of lying.
Between the ages of 6 and 7, I read an illustrated version of the Bible cover-to-cover... Several times. If ever there was a chance that My eyes could have been "opened" to the alleged truth of the Bible, that
would have been the time for your invisible friend to work his magic.
SOI, it had the exact opposite effect. By the time I was 7½ years old I had seen through the artifice of organized religion and had publicly stated something to the effect of "Stories of Hell would be a really good way to keep a group of people under control."
And at no
time in My 53+ years have I believed in the god of the Bible.
I've continued to read the Bible intermittently over the years. In My eyes, "opened" or not, it simply doesn't deliver. It's valuable primarily as a piece of historical literature, and heavily derivative literature at that. It's not particularly original, and it certainly isn't a good source of either history or moral instruction. I'm quite convinced that it was neither written by nor inspired by a god.
My disbelief is just that -- Disbelief. I see no evidence for the god of the Bible.
(chalks Her hands and takes a couple of practice swings with Her Clue-By-Four™) So, tell Me, SOI... What do *you* think is "really going on inside"?
