The God Delusion

“To be fair, much of the Bible is not systematically evil but just plain weird, as you would expect of a chaotically cobbled-down anthology of disjointed documents, composed, revised, translated, distorted and ‘improved’ by hundreds of anonymous authors, editors and copyists, unknown to us and mostly unknown to each other, spanning nine centuries. This may explain some of the sheer strangeness of the Bible. But unfortunately it is this same weird volume that religious zealots hold up to as the inerrant source of our morals and rules for living.”

  1. it seems to me that he works hard to show that the bible has contradictions, errors, and irrationalities, and then steps back and claims that he has proven that God does not exist. No, he has simply shown that the bible is not infallible.
    While i personally know that God does exist, i believe that it is impossible to prove either the existence or the nonexistence of Him/Her.
