When we were kids we all dreamed to be like Spider man, Batman, even Iron man, but some of us grow up and decide that fairy tales are for kids and nothing in them could possibly be real. How is the bible any different? There are many tales in the bible that people believe to be real no matter how you show them it is not. The one in Ezekiel 1: 16-30, these verse talk about a creature that was not described but with wheels and flying wings, not to mention the creatures in glowing metal. It is so absurd that it isn't even able to paraphrase to send an idea.In Judges 19:22-30 there is a story about a man and his wife wondering the street, when they decide to seek shelter for the night, and find a man kind enough to let them stay. That night however, a group of men turn up at the door and demand to see the guest so that they may have sex with him. The owner is unwilling to let his male lodger be raped and so offers up his virgin daughter instead. However, this is still not good enough for the men, so the owner offers them his guest’s concubine and the men accept. The man brutally rapes her and left her on the door step. The make this even weirder the husband finds her and chops her up into 12 pieces and send them to the 12 tribes of Israel. I understand that Christian is nuts to talk to someone that does not talk back, but one story in, 1 Samuel 18:25-27 the babble talk about how David brought Saul some fore skins from back from the 200 Philistines that he killed.
If we could not be Spiderman or Batman what makes people think that they could live with a GoD that allows so many different bibles, and so many different interpretations of the bible? When will these people grow up and understand the difference between a fairy tale and reality? My wife says that this verse was because women would of stop religion a long ago and is why they were not permitted to speak in church. 1Cor.14:34-35 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. To say what Madalyn Murray O'Hair said best, “Religion has caused more misery to all of mankind in every stage of human history than any other single idea.”
