“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.”

    soon there will be an indicator in your comments on your -/+ status. not sure if I should shade the entire comment or just have a little indicator.

    Kero

    You should make it so people who have + have like glowing comments and alarms go off whenever one of them looks at the page you are on.

    Puulaahi

    What shit storm? I don’t see a shit storm?

    THIS IS M[c]S-!!!!!!!!

    It should be noted that the Bible was written by man, not God.

    /just sayin.

    RSIxidor

    That’s asking for a shit storm right there.

    Because now someone will come and tell you that the bible was written by men inspired by God and therefore is FLAWLESS VICTORY.

    Good god i am a Jew/Christian and even i think that argument is bullshit.

    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?

    Nahhhhhh!

    RSIxidor

    Any point in which you make a Star Wars chart would be big, but maybe not this massive.

    RSIxidor

    Damnit where is the full size high res version of this shit? I am intensely interested.

    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.

    wookie_x

    Hey, if the KJV was good enough for Jesus, it should be good enough for you!

    [insert sarcasm here]

    Just This Guy, You Know?

    Well played, sir. 😀

    natedog

    the bible was written by 40+ authors over 1800 years before it was translated from 3 languages into 1 and compiled together centuries later

    this was all hundreds of years ago

    TheLotusEater725

    You also forgot how the torah (old testament) originally started out as a verbal record WAAAAYYY before anyone bothered to physically record it.

    conan776

    Good thing I’m Catholic and the whole Bible thing isn’t that big of a dealio. 😛

    TheLotusEater725

    Wait a minute. BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH ATHEISM BLAH BLAH BLAH EVOLUTION, SOMETHING SOMETHING MY FAITH WILL NEVER CHANGE, RICHARD DAWKINS, DOMGATACISM, BARACK OBAMA, MUSLIMS, CHRIST IS GOD SCIENCE, SOMETHING GOING TO HELL. IF EVOLUTION IS REAL THEN WHY DO WE STILL HAVE MONKEYS, SOMETHING SOMETHING THE EARTH IS 6,000 YEARS OLD MY PASTOR SAYS SO AND HE TALKS TO GOD AND LIKE WHY WOULD YOU ARGUE WITH GOD, OK NO SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE EXISTS BUT SOMETHING SOMETHING RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGEEEEEEEEEEEEEE?

    Ok i feel better.

    Just This Guy, You Know?

    You forgot the “WHAAAARGARBL!”

    see people, the judaic BS cant even keep its story straight
    forsake the lies of the jaudaic-based religions and embrace Odin as your Lord
    the Norse keep the truth alive

    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.”

    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.

    TheLotusEater725

    SHHHHHH, you are oppressing them by pointing out flaws in their arguments. Also you probably hate science and rape little boys as well.

    Just This Guy, You Know?

    Honestly, that irony has never been lost on me. Atheists, like theists, are asking people to take on faith something that cannot be proven. Atheists also seem to have a great need to spread their message and meet with other like-minded people to discuss that message. Sure sounds like a religion to me. >.<

    fracked again

    The universities are religions, too. As are political parties, poetry readings and stamp collecting clubs.

    fracked again

    Nobody can provide me an example and I don’t want to hear any. LALALALALA! I CAN’T HEAR YOU!! Don’t need google, there are books upon books upon books about the subject written by scholars on all sides of the issue.

    Welcome to intentional ignorance, enjoy your stay.

    Will bet that this is intended to be a big impressive wall poster. I’ll buy it. This project is like the best use of time I can think of.

    Screw cancer research, amirite?

    RogerX

    Hmmph. If God had intended for cancer to be cured, he wouldn’t have invented it in the first place.

    Spartiate

    Just like polio, scurvy and smallpox.
