The fool hath said in his heart, "There is no God". They are corrupt, they have done abominable things, There is none that doeth good. (Psalm 14:1)
First off, you deny Gods and Goddesses left and right. You say in your heart every day that Zeus does not exist. You say every day in your heart that Odin does not exist. In fact, you deny every God and Goddess -- but one. So if us Atheists are fools, then you're almost identical. Just one little god between us.
Second, this is disgustingly and blindly prejudiced! It's no less prejudice than saying all black people are bad. So, with that said, how can this book ever be considered moral? Do you realize how much death and suffering came out of that little nauseating verse? Do you realize how many good and loving people are continually hurt by this? Or do you not care?
Third, let me school you with a little bible verse that contradicts your little precious prejudiced statement. Matthew 5:22 where Jesus said, "Whoever shall say, Thou fool, is in danger of hellfire." Uh oh. You just said I was a fool. Not bright! Glad I'm not the one believing it. Too bad for you! Feelin a bit hot? The mind can play terrible tricks on a person.
"Christians refer to the following as mythological figures: Hercules, Osiris, Bacchus, Mithra, Hermes, Prometheus, Perseus, and Horus. All are pre-Christian sun gods and yet all allegedly had gods for fathers and virgins for mothers; had their births announced by stars and celestial music; were born on the solstice around December 25th; had tyrants try to kill them in their infancy; met with violent deaths; and rose from the dead. Moreover, nearly all were worshipped by 'wise men' and were alleged to have fasted forty days."
