Default The Absurdity of the Abrahamic Religions

Remember all those Bible stories from childhood that you never questioned? Here's some examples of applying logic and reason to the Bible - or any "holy" book for that matter:

Yeah. Logic and mythology don't really play well together.

And that second statement is exactly why I could never worship the twisted, sadistic piece of **** character named 'god' in the story of the bible. Even if I could somehow manage to suspend logic and reason long enough to actually believe in it in the first place.

That's pretty whelming, people. Now, let's discuss the religion that has psychos going around actually butchering infidels, treating women like second class animals, and that has the majority of its members throwing a shlt fit when somebody even cracks a joke about its pedophile of a "founder", or its elevated moon god.

You ever think maybe God knew about DNA since he invented it? Many dangerous animals could have been stored that way till reconstituted. After all He is God.

Take a look at the ancient caduceus below and see if it looks like a DNA strand.

hmmm...more than that, similarities like that that we see or come up with as well as most inventions have a basic design on earth or within the body. Many of our inventions --harnessing electrical charges, for example--make the human body/brain work. And we had no way of knowing about those workings of the body when we "invented" them.
I think about things like that though not in awhile. Thanks for the stimulus.

It's logical that if humans create patterns and designs, someone invented us because we are amazingly designed!

Hey Barnacle Bill - Islam IS an Abrahamic religion. So is Christianity and Judaism. They are all interelated and all have the same source.

Actually, the "caduceus" is from ancient Egypt and is symbolic of the goddess Isis.





Christianity evolved from ancient Egyptian religions. All Christian charachters - Jesus, Mohammed, Yaweh, Allah, et al, are simply the modern recycling of the dieties of the ancient religions.
