I still don't know why all atheists love to tear apart a book they don't believe in just so they can ridicule someone.
how could you not know why? if the bible was universally perceived at the book of fairy tales and quasi-history that it is, we would have no reason to discuss anything other than the prose it contains.
but you guys use this book to guide not only your life but the lives of others who do NOT agree with its teachings. you even use it as a SCIENCE BOOK fro crying out loud. may atheists believe - with very good evidence - that the bible is an evil, archaic, profoundly ignorant book to base our morality upon. anyone with a moral fiber is and should be outraged that people still use this book for moral guidance.
i do enjoy reading parts of it that shows me how far we have come and and how little has changed since those ancient times. but as long as you and cohorts use it to modify MY life and to do evil, someone has to call BS on it. it is a moral imperative.
