All stories told by superstitious, scientifically-ignorant Bronze and Iron Age men.
Fortunately, this biblical garbage is not taught in schools and only a minority of people believe it. I can’t see any reason why teaching this tripe should not be outlawed as well.
I make no apologies for refusing to debate the merits of scripture. But you however, press an issue which is mind boggling, for you believe none of it, and want answers from all of it, as you ‘try to prove’ the defects in God and his word, while you deny the defects of your own heart. – CS
On the so-called religion of peace
By the way, Stephen was killed by men following God’s sacred and absolutely true command
Where IN THE NEW TESTAMENT do you see a Christian stoning someone to death or cutting their heads off? Where do you see the command by Christ or Paul to kill someone in the name of the Lord? -CS
By the way, if all-ah was the true God, his followers would be more like Christ than Satan. -CS
Is-lam is a monstrous and ugly counterfeit. And atheism is a monstrous and ugly denial of a Creator. -CS
On Creation and a Creator
Some have deemed Albert Einstein worthy of intellect apart from the Divine, while citing Paul as a mental midget. Ha, to this I say: The God of Paul the apostle is the Creator of Einstein’s brain, while the writings of Paul are proof of the Divine. -CS
Without God in the mix, we are but shallow thinkers, left alone to swim in the sea of stupidity, ignoring the waves of reason which crash before us. -CS
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. -Genesis
‘I hope you have no contact with children.’
‘I accept none of your arguments about your god’s creation or what life is due to your god unless and until your god has the courtesy to show me what I need to satisfy my curiosity.’
And God created great whales. They are great in every regard; of course they are, the greatest of playgrounds needed the greatest of guests. -CS
‘How is it that your flawed reasoning never improves?’
‘So says Bronze stone age men.’
On the virgin birth of the son of God
‘You are the personification of a hypocrite, ignoramus, a plonker, and a stunted intellect.’
On the apostle Paul being a tremendous man of God:
‘Paul was not a saint (regardless of what the Catholic Church says). He was just a man who believed he had been given a special mission by god (similar to Jim Jones, David Koresh, and many others across the span of time.’
‘I advise years of extensive therapy.’
‘You mean basing an entire career on falling down in the middle of the road, flopping around like a carp, and experiencing a hallucination that a dead man spoke to him? I’m not seeing how that would make anything else he had to say particularly credible.’
‘So easy to analyze anyone from a distance, especially when that distance is 2000 years! Your last line sums it up beautifully, “If Paul had a mental disorder I want what he had” Paul had an amazing grasp of language and understood the culture of his day. He had to have been incredibly intelligent and God gifted him with many powerful gifts.
If I “covet” anything of Paul’s it is his unswerving and total dedication to His Lord and proclaiming the truth of the Gospel, every word conveys his passion.
Really interesting post – Thanks!!!
I no more need an excuse for my atheism as you do not to believe in Martians.
‘Insanity is believing all things came to exist by chance and apart from Intelligence. Atheism is the religion and proof of that insanity.’ -CS
‘I believe that the Bible is from the Creator, who is our Redeemer, and that He inspired those who wrote it, and He preserved their words in history. It is completely trustworthy, infinitely more trustworthy than the words and writings of the scholars who tear it down, and whose so-called scholarship changes all the time.’
‘I once got really aggravated with atheists and threw a bit of a fit. There was one in particular that just irritated me. In the process of praying and venting my frustration, God left me sputtering by informing me that the guy actually leads more people to Christ than many Christians do. Oh ouch, and so true!’
Four comments of exceptional mental prowess- ‘no God!’
‘He hasn’t give the proof already. He hasn’t given any proof that I can see and the fact that you are convinced already says nothing about your god.’
‘You offer nothing of honest value to those who try to crack open your mind enough for you to see the travesty you have made of your natural curiosity in the name of your faith-based beliefs. You are welcome to remain proudly and arrogantly encapsulated in the ignorant cocoon of your own delusion.’
‘Maybe one day you too will become truly enlightened and see what you believe for what it really is: the worst form of moral corruption.’
‘The moon doesn’t need a “reason” to exist. It just does. It’s an emergent product of the way the universe works.’
On the flood of Noah
‘I just proved that it was physically and scientifically impossible, but you’ve probably deleted my proof by now.’
I don’t mock the Bible. I don’t despise it. But I do recognize myth when I see it and I recognize the paucity of literalism when applied to it. (In contrast to your assertions, I have learned much wisdom from myth.) This is what you’re doing with the Flood; you are confusing the symbolic with the historical and believing yourself correct because you believe it.
You are calling into veracity the testimony of the son of God. He used that truth (of the flood), that event in the history of man as a springboard to teach the exact certainty of later things. Will you challenge the Lord’s integrity? Was He part of a grand theft of delusion which he was happy to promote? -CS

Hopefully, one day, arseholes like Ken Ham and his ilk will be seen for what they are: deranged, and will be prosecuted and prevented by law from teaching this nonsense to children. And why not? The Klu Klux clan are illegal, as is apartheid.
I can’t see any reason why teaching this tripe should not be outlawed as well.
‘Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?’ asks the Creator to arrogant man.
‘For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water, and in the water; whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished.’ (Peter the apostle)
And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered. (who ya gonna believe?) -CS
And the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. (God’s word)
On moderation of comments
Do you ‘censor’ what goes into your salad, or do you sprinkle in rat poison so the spices do not complain?
Your excuse is lame and baseless. Have you ever read the comments by your friends on my site? Do you really believe disagreements are withheld?
You have no case. -CS
On this author
I hate that man’s (CS) guts with every fibre of my being and I won’t be shy about telling him so. -ashley 10.15. 16
You truly are a sanctimonious hypocritical maggot-infested ****hole, Colorstorm and John is spot on when he hopes that you have no access to children. -littlestonegod 5.2.16
You are such a fool. -the bird man 5.1. 16
So, John, you willingly lie to children. That is why you should have no contact with them. You are a retardant to the human condition, a diseased human being. –the apostle of atheism jz 4.28.16.
CS is like a malaria carrying, blood sucking mosquito buzzing around someone’s ear. I keep mosquito zappers handy, too, should you need one. -neuronotes 6.9.2015
Nah. I’ll just use CS’s blog for that. Thanks for the offer though. I’ll keep it in mind. Come to think of it, covering it in puke would almost certainly be a massive improvement. -Ashley 6.9.2015
I have never commented on his blog. However, I had read a couple of his posts a while back, and have been in discourse with him in the past on other blogs. It didn’t take me long to realize that he’s mentally unstable. I think he fits the 4 criteria of a study done in Canada with around 1,500 college students–that he would kill someone if he thought god told him to. -neuronotes
