“One book composed by editorial committee from numerous accounts 300 years after a set of events does not constitute undisputable historical fact.”

    Yes it does ! Becuase god made them get together and inspired them to make the choices they made. The committee were mere vessels for Our Lord . So its true , its the word of god !

    Just joking , but you can be sure this would be the unthinking faith-heads’ stock reply.

    However a god that poweful could have just put the whole thing together himself and said , here , this is my bible , no go preach the art of stoning , rape and damnation , and dont worry about the inconsisitencies , I deliberatley put them in there to test your faith. much like I did when I planted dinosaur bones around the planet.

    A gawd that powerful would have been able to incorporate his word into our dna…anything less proves that he not omni-anything.

    I believe trying to convince adult theists of our logical take on their “faith” is a waste of time. They did not become entrenched in their ideology overnight. They have been programmed over many years, starting when they were baptized, with a set of “god-parents” who swear they will bring up the child in the faith should anything happen to the parents. At least WEEKLY brainwashing continues through the impressionable years, until they become adults who are mentally locked-in by the indoctrination. We must find a way to counter or nullify this programming in children! We need social laws which prohibit the indoctrination of children who are under legal consent. Similar to laws which protect children from other harmful or dangerous situations.

    Can I get an “Amen”? 🙂

    To do this it will help to have science-rationalist schools that explain the facts and rights of science and atheism as opposed to the fictions and wrongs of religious mythologies.

    Instead, many countries do the contrary.

    Dan Dennett’s wonderful book “Breaking the Spell – Religion as a Natural Phenomena” ought to be required reading in high school.
