I would like to lightly learn the bible (for discussion only). Please share the most ridiculous passages that irritate you.

“Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.” - Bible

I could probably paste the entire bible here.  The bible is ridiculous and irritating to me in its entirety.  -- However, these are the verses I read that started me questioning in my teenage years and that eventually lead me in the path to Atheism. 

 

1 Timothy 2:12

New International Version (©1984)
I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.

1 Corinthians 11:3 *
 
3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman [is] the man; and the head of Christ [is] God.

1 Corinthians 11:7 - 9*
 
7 For a man indeed ought not to cover [his] head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.
9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.
 
1 Corinthians 14:34 - 35*
 
34. Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but [they are commanded] to be under obedience, as also saith the law.
35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

(Woman to be silent in church. A woman is not to speak in church)


Ephesians 5:22 - 25*
 
22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so [let] the wives [be] to their own husbands in every thing.
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

(Wives must submit themselves to their husband, afterall he is the head of the wife)


Colossians 3:18 *
 
18. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.

(Wives submit to their husband -- the Lord expects it)


1 Timothy 2:9 - 15*
 
9. In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
Thank you Blithe, Steph, and Eugene for your insight into that piece of crap bible. I was speaking with a friend tonight who said these passages must be from the Old Testament. Once again, Chrisitians deleting and extracting whatever info they feel suits them best. Is this material found in the New Testament as well if this is even true as my friend says?
The verses I posted are from the New Testament.  Eugene and Blithe are citing the Old Testament. Both are bad Testaments in my opinion.
Don't they just love to pick out the parts that make them look bad. Why are they changing "God's Word"? Are they embarrassed?

I love it when they dismiss and excuse certain parts of the bible!  We should always take the opportunity to point out to them that by rejecting certain biblical lessons they are showing their natural moral compass.  

If they cry "context", ask them if that means that we have "evolved".  

They can't argue that religion teaches morality when it becomes clear that they are morally superior to the manual.

Why does anyone, but especially women, kowtow to idiot-misogynist men and their filthy, dirty motherfucking book?  I'll never know...

 

CHEERS!!

You should pick up a copy of Ken's Guide to the Bible. It's small, humorous and a great starting point for learning your way around the oldest piece erotic horror ever written.
Thank you, Morsa. I look forward to reading it.   :)

Dark Funeral
Godhate lyrics

In the land of Israel, not too long ago.
A man sat in his prison cell, watching the moonlight.
They called him the king of Jews, but he had no crown.
All he had were his hope, for the coming of his Lord.
A Lord that isn't there when you are in need,
A lord so full of shit, you will die for his deeds.

Guilty or not, you're full of shit.
Spreading your lies that too many believes.
You are a fake, and I know the truth.
I know your name and your god I do hate.

When the moon fades away, the rise of sawn.
Our self-proclaimed king, he starts to cry.

Guilty, guilty!!!
You will die upon your cross, amongst the other thieves.
Guilty, guilty!!!
You will die upon your cross, amongst the other thieves.
The day has now arrived, and it is time for you to die.
Still blinded by stupidity, believing you are Christ.
Walking down the streets of Jerusalem,
Covered in spit, from the people you loved.
I love that song man... wow, its the one that made me become an atheist

This observation (from an unknown source) is quite useful if you want to loosely learn Bible basics:

 

The Bible:

As scientifically accurate as the rantings of an end-stage syphilitic mental patient who's been electrocuted and hit in the head with a shovel.

Cheers!!

In 1st Samuel 15, the first few verses, God orders his troops to invade a city (Amalek) and tells them to be very sure to kill all the little babies, especially the ones still being breast fed. I often ask my Christian friends, "Would you have followed such an order?" and then I ask them to please describe to me how they would go about killing a little baby. "Throw it on a table and chop it up with your sword? Hold it by the feet and smash its head against the wall?" If the god depicted in the Bible were real, then life would be truly absurd, but we nontheistic humans possess the ability to create our own meaning in our own lives and to live compassionately and morally without reference to, or fear of, a war criminal god.

Indeed, Raymond.  When we begin to learn TRUTH, FACTS, when WE begin to learn and examine and KNOW OURSELVES and OUR HISTORY, you'll then KNOW that it is YOU that has the REAL POWER, and that, in fact, WE ALL ARE GOD.  And with this we ACT, armed with the TRUTH, KNOWLEDGE, POWER and a STRENGTH SO VAST and SO DEEP...that we begin to TRANSCEND everything that's ever been thrown our way, including any religion...
