“Visualization of the contradictions in the Bible taken from The Scripture Project by Steve Wells (see the Projects section of www.reasonproject.org).
The bars that run along the bottom of the visualization represent the 1189 chapters in The Bible, with the length of each bar corresponding to the number of verses in each chapter. White bars represent the Old Testament and grey bars represent The New Testament. Each arc indicates a contradiction.”

    7. Hmmm…could this possibly be a worse tangle of contradictions than would be present in a similar chart of the current, post-Clone Wars series Star Wars Expanded Universe?

    9. Contradictions how? Are we talking about how in one chapter it may say “Don’t poke people with sticks” and then in another book (likely written hundreds of years later) it says “Hey go out and poke everybody with sticks!”, or are we talking continuity errors, like maybe in the New Testament Gospel of Matthew it may say “And Jesus woke up on his 30th birthday and his disciples gave him an awesome pair of sandals, while in the Gospel of Mark it might read “And after waking on his 30th birthday, the disciples gave him a new donkey?”

      That was long. o_O

      But really, I’m not so concerned about the New Testament contradicting stuff in the Old, since if you ignore the question of the divinity of Christ, and look at him as a Rabbi and activist, that’s kind of what his whole point was. Essentially he was a Jewish Martin Luther.

      Besides, it’s fun to find some Bible thumper who vehemently opposes gay marriage by citing Leviticus as their justification, then asking them if they eat bacon, cut their hair, or shave, since that’s also prohibited in Leviticus. Or maybe Deuteronomy. I forget. My point is the text cannot be taken literally.

      Don’t even get me started on everything wrong with the KJV translation, anyway.

    13. The whole foundation of Christianity is based on the idea that intellectualism is the work of the Devil. Remember the apple on the tree? Okay, it was the Tree of Knowledge. “You eat this apple, you’re going to be as smart as God. We can’t have that.”

    14. I love how you atheists gather around each other, masterbate your egos, give names and titles to your grouping, and quote other atheists as basis for *YOUR OWN* beliefs.

      And then call me a “sheep”.

      Welcome to a religion, enjoy your stay.

      BTW, if this completely worthless pic were true, there would be no one in the world who could possibly believe the bible sans one of you such jag-offs tossing out an “irrefutable contradiction”. As it stands, no one can provide one that can’t be reasonably explained. Don’t bother googling one up either, the author of that geocities site you’ll inevitably reference is just as ignorant as you.
