Growing up in a highly religious household and
attending religious schools (I have long since
started to think for myself) I was intrigued by the
existance of this site. What I thought I would
find would be an intellectual response to simple
apologetics. What I found was a lot of simple attack
on Biblical literalism and simple ignorance of the
contents of the Bible.
I am in no way a holy roller or a Bible thumper
but this was just a terrible attempt to dispute the biblical
record. Granted the site took a lot of effort to build
but the majority of content is as much fluff as most
Sunday hat wearing tract pushing Jesus freak
will feed you.
The outright shock and horror that the Bible contains violence,
sex, and intolerance shows a lack of understanding of the Bible. The misconception
that God is sunshine and lollypops was brought about by the reactions of people to the
fire and brimstone preachers of yesteryear and the need to maintain attendance at
church(you draw more flies with shit than vinegar). According to the 'facts' as
mentioned in the Bible: He is a holy and just God. Piss Him
off and you will get pissed on. He doesn't report to a higher power,
HE is the higher power. His Word is law even higher than the
laws of thermodynamics.
This site will give me a lot of amusement to show to some old aquaintences but
as for a real resource it has a LOT of work to go. If you hit a real theologian or bible
scholar you'd better have a bit more than this site.
