    That would be the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster!

    This ‘word of God’ nonsense irritates me no end. Aside from the fact that the bible is filled to the brim with misogyny, murder, injustice, brutality, contradictions and all manner of other demonstrably false crap, it can’t escape notice that our modern standards in ALL areas are superior to that offered by ANY of the barbaric texts that the major religions put forward as ‘devine’ works. Which begs the question: How could it be that an omniscient, omnibenevolent deity could produce or inspire anything so obviously filled with gross errors?

    HI CAPT. Z

    the damn thing irritates me too. but i gotta tell ya,

    next time your in a bookstore, look around for

    a bible with ” Modernized ” translations……………..

    you know…the gospel written in contemporary english.

    if you thought the old-timey stuff was quaint and great,

    wait’ll you see what they’ve done with it !!!!

    some of it reads almost like ” dick & jane “………………

    really, really preposterous.

    take a look…………you’ll enjoy.

    The bible is the twisted form of truth.
    Bet this will make most atheists happy.
    But there’s still one true book.

  13. R J Says:

    most people who claim to

    “speak from the heart”

    rarely do

  14. solomon Says:

    Its because they did’nt do it from a true heart.

    No, they did it from a functioning mind. The horrors, I know.
