Just something I ran across. Both before and after the tweaking. Go figure.

    1. Uh, well, somebody definitely thought this was WIN…twice.
      First pic was closer to correct than the second was. They should have left well-enough alone!

      As far as the message of the sign goes, it is correct; however; when you are Catholic you are mostly told NOT to read the Bible. I guess the Pope and his cronies don’t want their lemmings, oops, followers learning the truth.

      Now I sit back and wait for the anti-God/Bible flames in 3, 2, 1…

    3. Correct punctuation makes all the difference.

    4. I’ve actually read the Bible.

      Ugh. What a long, boring, contradicting mess it is.

      It’s that way for a reason. That way they can claim whatever they want is in there, and no one will bother to check up on it, because “a man of god” told them.

      I especially like the laws for selling daughters into slavery.

      • Honestly? I didn’t expect that from you. I’m not religious but I consider the bible a great piece of literature. Of course it’s plagiarism, but I appreciate it anyway. Contradictions aren’t nice though that’s true, but if you look at it as if it were poetry they’re half as bad. Some of the best authors have stated that they use the bible as a source of inspiration, take Wolfgang Hohlbein for example. He isn’t religious either.

        I guess it’s difficult to recognise any beauty the Bible may contain with all these wars and injustice that have resulted because of it, but to disregard it so much does prove a certain lack of objectivity.

        • I’m guessing you’ve already read Ich und Du by Martin Buber, but if you haven’t I highly recommend it, along with Hegel, obviously in German, no English.

          • I have not! I think Caio recommended Buber as well, in that thread where he ridiculed me for being a determinist. I’ll go and raid my local library today, thank you once again. It’s good that you reminded me, I think I tried to forget about Buber to spite Caio. How idiotic.

        • But is it because of the Bible or is it because of people?

          Reply

          • Of course, people. Just like with guns, they don’t point at people on their own, people choose to be bad or good based on how they have been raised and so much more, a book or the availability of a weapon doesn’t make them suddenly commit crimes. Though I think people prefer to blame the bible, you know similar to, it’s the sin not the sinner. I have no problem with that, as long as they don’t say things like “away with all Christians/Muslims/Jews!”, it’s all cool by me.

          • I’ll go with the third option: Both. Due to the fact that the bible is open to interpretation and doesn’t completely work with modern times.

        • I have studied the bible as the literary work of fiction that it is, and I too appreciate its merits in that regard. I am equally certain that many artists and authors have found untold inspiration within its contradictory and plagiarized pages.

          I also do not believe that the bible has caused the untold misery suffered by millions throughout the centuries, rather it is the manner in which religions and religious leaders have manipulated and bastardized its words in order to subjugate the untold millions who escaped death by their hands.

          I know that the bible is not a thing to be disregarded, but I was working with the twelve words that I had. Fourteen if you count the “U”s.

        • Didn’t expect that of me?

          First of all, I read the whole thing. It’s long. It’s boring. There are lots of info dumps. Reading the whole ‘X begat Y’ part near the beginning is a slow torture (that I wisely skipped past after the first few). Lots of the earlier books are just “God’s laws” info dumps. Deuteronomy is especially bad in this regard, even if it gives me my favorite quotes.

          The new testament is easier to read, but still kind of preachy. Mostly full of well meaning advice that I only see hippies following, and I don’t think their inspiration was the bible. Even then it tells multiple versions, jumps around a lot, and doesn’t tell the whole story. I never found the part of Jesus getting crucified. 99% sure it’s not in there.

          There is very little poetry in it. A lot was probably lost in translation after translation… like the word satan being Hebrew for ‘adversary’ or ‘opponent,’ and the replacing of anyone who challenged God with a bet in the old Testament (like the Angel who challenged God in Job) with the “Devil,” a character added in the new testament.

          Religion has good and bad parts, but the bible IS a long, boring, contradicting mess.

          Anyway, my favorite bible quote:

          11When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one draweth near for to deliver her husband out of the hand of him that smiteth him, and putteth forth her hand, and taketh him by the secrets:

          12Then thou shalt cut off her hand, thine eye shall not pity her.

          ~Deuteronomy 25:11-12

          (Basically, if two men get into a fight, and one man’s wife grabs her husband’s opponent by the balls, her husband muss cut off her hand, and do it without hesitation).

          • I didn’t expect it of you because I consider you to be one of the most objective people on this site.

            Well ok, I’m not quite sure why you cited all these things now. I’m also disappointed that you said the new testament is easier to read. Fuck the new testament and easy short readings. To me the entire bible is poetry, though it’s pretty apparent that you read the bible and interpreted everything literally. Of course it’s boring and ugly if you do that. I see you know of the significant differences between the messy translations and the original in Hebrew so that’s good. They also changed “place of shame” into a so called “hell where you can burn for eternities.” The original is filled with riddles, doublespeak, and other fine things that one could spend several lifetimes trying to decipher.

            But yeah whatever, I guess I was wrong about you at least when it comes to literature. Es irrt der Mensch, solang er strebt.

    5. Too bad neither was smart enough to notice the glaring puncuation error.

      As regards the contradictions: pic or it didnt happen

    6. Rather burn in hell then go to a Christian Church. I lean toward Buddhism and Ancient Hawaiian/ Native American religions anyhow.

    8. Ask yourself this: What has religion done to the world ? Would one think the world would be better off without it, or is it essential to our survival

    9. if you compare Christianity, Islam, and Judaism ,they are all essentially the same religion. they all worship the same god, and have the same prophets. the bible is sadly used as a scapegoat for violence and pain over the years. people who dont read the bible but call themselves a Christian are the bad ones. not the ones who have read it. i am a Christian and I believe in God, but I don’t believe the entire bible. only portions. I believe in evolution but also that there is a God and that God does get his hands dirty in the business on Earth and that he created Earth, but not that he created life and mankind. just because some one follows a religion, that doesn’t mean they are the idiots who don’t formulate their own opinion. if someone wants to believe that the bible is literal and everything in it actually happened, so be it as long as that’s what they truly believe, not what someone told them to believe. believe whatever you want, as long as you truly believe it and it is your belief not what someone else said to believe.
