Excellent post and accurate re-telling of that silly old story. It's so funny when illustrated !

ahh, the bible.. the good old days of incomprehensible deities and blind submission to their masochistic whims.. would be a joy to go back there, even if only for the sweet memories..

Job is a great story. My fav book in the Bible, it's also a pretty agnostic book.

I always wondered how Mrs Job felt about losing her kids so God could prove a point. Hmmm

This makes me laugh. It makes me happy I'm an atheist. ^_^

Hilarious! There should really be a sequel to this.

GOD is not this evil character that your video expresses. He is very real and loves us enough to not destroy us for all the horrible things we are. This is blasphemy and denial. I mean honestly, what's the point of this video? To get The Word out or to make fun of GOD? GOD deserves HONOR & GLORY, not disrespect and mockery!

Psalm 74:18-Remember how the enemy has mocked you, O LORD, how foolish people have reviled your name.

Proverbs 1:22-How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge?

There you have it. Karen is a "horrible person" who deserves destruction through god's wrath. Yikes. What a decrepit belief system. Glad I'm done with that!! -Wes.

ooOOoh! Bible verses! BIBLE VERSES! Oh, holy crap! Everyone! RUN! RUN! Karen's invisible friend is gonna get us!! And she has BIBLE VERSES!! Aaaaaa!. Seriously though... Hey, Karen - before the more knowledgeable people here rip you to shreds, you best go away for a little while, do some dtudying, and perhaps learn a little more about your religion before posting stupid things like this that only serve to make you look, well, without being crass, slightly above mentally retarded... -Wes.

Oooookay, Karen, you're on.

Tell your precious little imaginary god to resurrect every member of the Amakalite people who was executed as a result of its orders to Saul (1 Samuel 3) and every being that drowned in the Noachide flood, down to the last earthworm and cockroach...

...and maybe, just maybe, we'll stop calling it a monster.

As for being "horrible", no human being who has ever lived can measure up to the god of the Bible. It is the poster child for horror. Get your pious head out of your butt and read your fucking Bible, lady. You are obviously worshipping "Yahweh Lite", the touchy-feely never-did-anything-wrong god... Not the god of the Bible.

You know it is interesting how most people who comment on this page hide behind the name "Anonymous."
It is also interesting how most of you mouth breathers can't spell the most basic of words that you throw at Christians, whose only crime (and in fact, true religion) is loving others.
By the way, I wish to point out that at times, I too have been disallusioned with Christianity, but have decided that the importance is not in the accuracy (for just one example...let's be honest, how likely is it that the pharow of egypt would keep chasing his slaves after all the crap he went through whilst doing so...), or in the Christians (lets be honest, most of us, myself included, are a bunch of hypocrites), but in the IDEA...and the idea is to love others, and be kind to them. No matter how twisted and perverted this idea becomes once interpretted by humans (i.e., "The Church," "The Crusades," "Mr. Rogers"). In keeping with bringing up thoughts of accuracy, BTW, I have been thinking alot about the possibility of "Noah's Arc." All species on one boat? Well, since I am not an ex-Christian (stumbled on the site totally by accident), I can only presume that not as many species had evolved at that point (yes...Christians believe in scientific facts like "evolution" and "gravity" too...). What do youn all think?
Oh, and Tim? I have great news! There is a sequel!
It's temporarily been called, "The rest of the Bible."

"He who lives in glass house should avoid throwing stones" -- old elementary school proverb

David Wisniewski said...

True enough. I apologize for my typo. But I believe that there was more to my comment than one misspelled word. If, however, you feel the need to focus on that part of the comment, because the rest goes against what you wish to think, then that is perfectly acceptable.

.:webmaster:. said...

David, you are the one who criticized misspellings, after which you immediately misspelled something.

That is ironic.

Deal with it.

The rest of your rant is far too chaotic for me to make heads or tails of, therefore I have no comment in response. Perhaps if you endeavored to make your points a bit more systematically and coherently, there'd be something that someone would find worth responding to.

Regardless, the proverb stands: If you find it necessary to throw stones, be sure you don't end up stoning yourself. Or if you prefer another proverb: "He who is without sin, let him throw the first stone."

"What do youn [sic] all think?"

Have a great day.

David, most of the Anonymice are drive-by Christians. The regulars, myself included, either have Blogger accounts or sign our posts.

"It is also interesting how most of you mouth breathers can't spell the most basic of words that you throw at Christians..."

That's an ad hominem argument, David. Insults do nothing to further your case.

"...whose only crime (and in fact, true religion) is loving others."

No, that is *not* why we find Christianity so repulsive. I, myself, have no problem whatsoever with the concept of love. But love is not what we tend to get from the various religious bigots who visit this site. We are regularly insulted or threatened with hellfire. Outside the site there are Christian theocrats lobbying in government, trying to impose their religion's morality on the rest of us. Generally, Christians' practice of their own religion is hindering our ability to live our finite lives in ways of our own choosing.

...and the idea is to love others, and be kind to them.

Christianity never, ever had a monopoly on the concept of being kind to others. People have been kind to others since people began. Otherwise, we would have killed ourselves off hundreds of thousands of years ago.

David,

The vast majority of anonymous posters here are visiting Christians, and the majority of those exhibit atrocious spelling and/or grammar. In fact, many seem to be functionally illiterate.

Another common theme among Christian visitors is the rapidity with which they cast aspersions (as you just did). Have you taken the time to understand what this site is about? Do you understand any of the positions taken by the regulars here?
