In the beginning....

The Man, the Myth, the fundamentalists Christians!!!


There is a Blockage in the System

The funniest thing about fundamentalist Christians is that they are the easiest to discredit using the Bible? Correct me if I'm wrong, but their premise for religion is that the Bible should be taken literally, right?

The Bible says "thou shalt not kill," yet people blowing up abortion clinics are more often than not fundamentalist Christians. The Bible says to "turn the other cheek," but they are the ones leading the call to war since 9-11.

Maybe, Jesus was on to something. I don't mean to be presumtuous, but maybe the sermon on the mount applied to everyone and not just everyone who didn't take the Bible literally.

Well, I have a solution. I haven't quite worked out the logistics, but hear me out. You see, there was a Christian philosopher born only about 150 years after Christ, who, like the fundamentalist Christians, believed that the Bible should be taken literally, and, consequently, he castrated himself after reading a certain passage in Matthew:

Matthew 19:12
"12For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it."

So, I don't know if the fundamentalists have conveniently skipped this passage and opted to dance with snakes, drink watered down poison, and hate reason, but if someone could notify them then maybe we, over the next couple of generations, could get the whole religion debate started again.

Thank you.


NOTE: When I say solution, I'm neglecting the other possiblity: reminding fundamentalists that the Bible is a translation of a translation, which means that unless you know ancient Hebrew and Greek, you CAN'T take the Bible literally (this is the aspect, I must interject, where Muslim fundamentalists have the upper hand, at least the Koran is written in Arabic, which all Muslims, from what I understand, believe is the language in which you have to read the Koran).

Just to further solidify the fact that the Bible CAN'T be taken literally, God didn't say, for example, "Let there be light." Okay? If God said anything, it wasn't "Let there be light," because English didn't exist when God created the world (which is why the "if" is important). We created language....or if we got language from God, it's been thouroughly muddled in the milions of years people have been around.
