atheist marshall brain




over at why doesnt god heal amputees wrote


makes this claim  Understanding the Bible

You keep opening the book to random pages, and nearly everything you find is utter nonsense. Either it is meaningless, completely irrelevant, disgusting or downright wrong.

Ask yourself this simple question: Why, when you read the Bible, are you not left in awe? Why doesn't a book written by an omniscient being leave you with a sense of wonder and amazement? If you are reading a book written by the all-powerful, all-knowing, all-loving creator of the universe, wouldn't you expect to be stunned by the brilliance, the clarity and the wisdom of the author? Would you not expect each new page to intoxicate you with its incredible prose and its spectacular insight? Wouldn't you expect the author to tell us things that scientists have not been able to discover yet?

Yet, when we open the Bible and actually read it, we find it is nothing like that at all. Instead of leaving us in awe, it leaves us dumbfounded by all of the nonsense and backwardness that it contains. If you would look at the Bible fresh, and read what it actually says, you find that the Bible is ridiculous. The examples shown above barely scratch the surface of the Bible's numerous problems. If we are honest with ourselves, it is obvious that an "all-knowing" God had absolutely nothing to do with this book.

The Bible is a book written thousands of years ago by primitive men. A book that advocates senseless murder, slavery and the oppression of women has no place in our society today. It is time for us to recognize this simple fact.

But what if you need still more proof? If so, then here is a question: Why, when you read the Bible, are you not left in awe? Why doesn't a book written by God leave you with a sense of wonder and amazement? If you are reading a book written by the all-powerful, all-knowing, all-loving creator of the universe, wouldn't you expect to be stunned by the brilliance, the clarity and the wisdom of the author? Would you not expect each new page to intoxicate you with its incredible prose and its spectacular insight?

Instead, opening the Bible inevitably creates a feeling of dumbfoundment. Have you ever noticed that? Instead of brilliance, much of the Bible contains nonsense. The topics of the previous several chapters, where we discussed the Bible's advocacy of slavery and animal sacrifice, the Bible's misogyny and so on, are excellent examples. But they are just the tip of the iceberg. You can open the Bible to almost any page and find nonsense instead of wisdom. Here are several examples:

his specific example,

Revelations 12:

   And a great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars; she was with child and she cried out in her pangs of birth, in anguish for delivery. And another portent appeared in heaven; behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems upon his heads. His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to bear a child, that he might devour her child when she brought it forth; she brought forth a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne, and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which to be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

marshall brain picked that passage from the last book of the bible revelation which my church said contains prophecies of the end time. his intention is to show this passage along with passages on child abuse slavery sexism is to show the bible is pure nonsense.

*spoilers this post contains spoilers to history channel's vikings*
*don't read if you plan to watch this and haven't yet*

one of my fav shows is Vikings and uh...if you watch it, esp the most current season features

viking bishop Heahmund



he's a precursor templars and crusaders.

he's a warrior bishop which like the templars and crusaders we sure don't have guys like this anymore.

he's an ordained priest AND he is a highly capable, indeed superior warrior.

basically his arc reminds me of both dances with wolves and the last samurai.

he's captured by the vikings




i call this dances with vikings, the last warrior bishop

he's kinda like a jedi, a christian version.

he has won the respect of the vikings due to his superior martial prowess. so one viking clan led by ivar the boneless  wants to recruit him to kill the rival viking clan by lagetha so bishop heathmond isn't killing christians but pagans.

the last episode he's captured by lagetha



in previous seasons legatha took offense to christians, told floki she wants him to install pure anti-christian hatred and raise her children to be strong believers in thor and odin. she doesnt want any viking converting to christianity and put to death a christian missionary. she hates christians. she wants her children to grow up and kill christians.

anyhow she's fallen in love with bishop heathmond a christian and she expressed interest in his religion which LOL. if i were heathmond and i'd had to choose between a man named ivar the boneless or a hot viking blonde woman uh no brainer unless she's treacherous. funny how "love" can get you to change your mind about a religion so quickly.

this is the kind of drama i like, this and kung fu panda, not 90210 or dynasty.

anyhow back to the OP

bishop heathmond was captured among the pagans he started reciting from memory




Revelations 12:

   And a great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars; she was with child and she cried out in her pangs of birth, in anguish for delivery. And another portent appeared in heaven; behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems upon his heads. His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to bear a child, that he might devour her child when she brought it forth; she brought forth a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne, and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which to be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

it sounded really cool when he said it. like he's some wise seer, something profound.

reading this on a piece of paper the atheist marshall brain point is this is ridiculous and i agree until i saw vikings, and watching bishop heathmond i'm thinking wow, that's deep.

it almost sounds shakespearean to me at least. of course the context was he was wearing armor and had a sword, and killed a lot of pagans in heat of battle so there's that.

one the actor who plays him is amazing and two this is context of brutal savage fighting. war.

after a lot of vikings wind up dead after a battle, and bishop heathmund is captured, he recites that it and it sounds almost poetic. a vision from the gods.

sounds a bit better IMO. context is everything
