Fuck the Recursive Bible! Anonymous 06/06/2022 (Mon) 02:47:39 No. 6997
Have any of you ever spent so much time with fundamentalists that you started thinking characters from the Bible decided to read the Bible itself to figure out what they had to do next? FUCK THE RECURSIVE BIBLE! Also, days were less than 24 hours long in the distant past, "red" was sometimes used in the Bible to describe brown objects, and most Bible-thumpers might secretly be porn addicts.
>>6997 >ave any of you ever spent so much time with fundamentalists that you started thinking characters from the Bible decided to read the Bible itself to figure out what they had to do next? That reminds me of how they claim the Pentateuch was written by Moses and yet it talks about his death.
Saying most Bible-thumpers might secretly be porn addicts is too much when at most they have some stag magazines.
>>6997 The red/brown discrepancy actually seems pretty reasonable. Some red and brown shades are similar, so I can see how someone might label brown as red. Every culture recognized different colors, in both modern and ancient times. In Japan, most shades of green were historically considered blue, while some cultures described many shades of blue as different colors that we would just label "blue". Brown isn't even considered a color to some because it's technically just a darker shade of orange, similar to how pink is just a lighter shade of red. >days were less than 24 hours long in the distant past Never heard this one before. How did they measure hours? Usually around that period I just heard time mentioned in the context of day/night rather than proper measurements. (sunrise, sunset, midday, etc) >>6998 Are you saying you won't write about your own death in your autobiography?
>>7069 Porn consumption statistics in more conservative regions of the US suggest that, yes, religiosity is a predictor of increased porn viewing. src: https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn16680-porn-in-the-usa-conservatives-are-biggest-consumers/
>>6997 It's even worse than you think; in order for thw bible to be true, God himself would have to have sinned: 1. Knowingly withholding a good deed is immoral (James 4:17). 2. God knows the entire timeline (Isaiah 46:10). 3. Included in all knowledge would be knowing human suffering would eventually occur. 4. God did nothing to prevent human suffering, breaking his own rule (James 4:17) - sinning, effectively. Either none of it is true, or the 'good' God fails to live up to his own standard, meaning none of it is true.
>>7309 Sin is disobedience to god. God cannot sin by definition because he is not accountable to anyone or anything.
>>7321 I have to question the logic of worshiping asking for moral guidance who can't - or won't - hold themselves to the standard by which they judge others. In fact, that's the main reason I left Christianity - if God existed, he'd be a cosmic-scale hypocrite. (And we haven't even talked about the glorification of cruelty, the mollycoddling of slavery, etc.)
>>7327 I think the general perspective is that god transcends morality and other human concepts. An ant on the sidewalk cannot comprehend the motivations of a child toying with it. From this perspective, god is essentially an unknowable cosmic force, and any religion which claims to speak his will are blasphemers.
>>7309 God did an ultimate good through a certain suffering - His Son, Jesus, who was literally perfect - for our f ups. God gave us free will to do whatever we want. A lot of our suffering is from ourselves: what we do to ourselves and what others do to us. Would you rather we lose our ability of free will? God already cleaned up our mistakes if you believe His Son took it. Do you want Him to wipe our choices also?
