Author Topic: Biblical Fatal Flaws: How can anyone take the Adam & Eve story seriously?  (Read 143 times)

It really is a crime when a child's virgin brain being ripe for learning the wonders of the real universe is instead filled with fiction from a much more ignorant time. It sets up a lifetime of rational conflict and guilt for many, or even worse a life of futile delusion. Ultimately modern theism amounts to cowardice inciting a fear of death, truth and reality.

Given that the universe was flat out terrifying to those ignorant camel jockeys I'm not surprised that they thought up characters to control the 'verse and promise protection in exchange for the smoke off tasty cuts of meat. I hope we outgrow this eventually.
We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."
