sk8eycat, recent studies prove beyond question that most atheists know the Buy Bull better than the average Christer. The old saying, "Familiarity breeds contempt" is at play, since the more one knows about religulous texts the more one becomes aware how illogical, inconsistent, contradictory, &c. they are. When a Witness or Mormon comes to my door I ask them, "Did God destroy Sodom because of homosexuality?" They nod and say yes, yes, yes. Then I ask, "Did God turn Lot's wife into a pillar of salt for looking back on Sodom?" Same reaction. Then I ask, "Did God help Lot relocate somewhere else and then direct Lot's daughters to have sex with their father?" They look at each other blankly, then beg off and leave my doorsteps.

I can't do that; I have to live with my JW sister, but she knows what I think about the buybull, and we just don't discuss religion.  Much.

I think it's funny that she considers the El-Ronners a cult, but not her own strange beliefs. (I also think she has Asperger's; she has been strange and awkward since infancy, and she shows all the traits, but there's no way I can get her to see a neuro-psych specialist for a diagnosis.  And it's much too late, anyway.)
