Paula, I have read many accounts of what successful writers had to go through to get their first stories or novels published.  You are absolutely right! 

If some unknown writer wannabe walked into Random House or Ballantine, or any other publisher, with a manuscript of the buybull as it is today, it wouldn't even be accepted for the "slush pile" as fiction.

If he was dead set on getting it published, he'd have to go to a "vanity press" and pay to have it priinted.

Or put it on the net as a blog.

I wonder how many hits he's get.  (I say "he" because no woman would have written that misogynistic crap.)

to me the proof is the pudding. the bobble cud only have been written by an isolated tribe of primates. god creates man then he kills of all except one family of which the patriarch is a drunkard. then he selects a group of slaves and gives them some desert land which they have to take from the people who live there.

It IS totally different when you are looking in from the outside, after being a part of the religion. I admit that I haven't read the bible, but I am currently reading the Brick Testament. I assume this 'version' makes fun of the buybull in many ways, but all I keep thinking is "If someone tried to publish this today, it would never happen!" It is so bad! What ridiculous stories that make NO sense, whatsoever. Talk about holes in the plot and inconsistencies!

The arrogance of xians...that was something I didn't notice till I started looking at it from the outside.  Plane crash survivor: "Gawd was looking after me (but not the other passengers; they all died).

Or, when a woman's granddaughter was murdered, "Gawd is testing my faith (because I'm important)."  Why would an all-knowing super-being need to test anything?  She/he/it would already know what's going to happen.

I'm still embarrassed that I used to believe all that crap.  Reading the buybull from cover to cover (twice!) was the last straw for me.

Right you are Paula! God's plan is not moral. Just read the bible .. I did It helped me become an Atheist.
Comment by Paula T. on May 13, 2012 at 7:06pm
No one stops to think about the morality of gawd's plan...or more precisely, the immorality. "he can do what he want's cuz he's god!" I call BS. Would any one of us cause the type of wounds the woman in the article had endured for any type of plan? nah, because we are better than their fake loving, omnipotent deity.

Sad story. Just another example of how prayer obviously works and how god clearly favors her. No mention of science or technology or skilled physicians that helped god out.
