The case against the existence of the biblical god is extremely strong

11 March 2014, 07:13

Here are a few questions for the bible punchers.

Do you recognise your god below? Is that the god you claim to know and pray to every day? That you expect others to believe in? Why should anybody honestly believe in such an entity and its existence?

Why is god - we're talking the biblical god now - such a bad communicator?

He leaves it to mankind to decide what he communicated and meant. God did not dictate the bible. It is a man made concoction and reflects the views of a small group of elitist clergy and their emperor.

And so mankind fought each other through the centuries over what should be in the bible and what it is supposed to say. Up to the present.

Worse even.

God allowed predictions to slip into the bible that failed demonstrably.

And so god allowed the creation of a whole industry of theologians and every other Tom Dick and Harry that goes around proselytizing to come up with all kinds of excuses why the prophecies either did not fail or why they failed or even why they don't mean the clear language they are in.

Fortunately we now have the internet and we are able to read. We are now in a position to challenge the lies and misrepresentations.

Why is god such a bad communicator? And so silent through the ages while his subjects were fighting it out among themselves over who has the right god and the right truth on their side?

Some of the worst examples of how the bible and Christianity imposed itself on humanity can be found in the personal testimonies of the victims of the Inquisitions.

Read them (google) but be sure to be close to a toilet or have a bucket at hand to catch your vomit.

God remained aloof while old, senile women were being tortured with among other torture methods with boiling water. As he did while they were burnt alive.

Those same victims were almost all genuine believers in the biblical god and their church. One can only surmise what went through their minds as the executioner lit the stake fire.

The case against the biblical god’s existence is extremely strong. The bible and history make sure of it.
