Top reasons for not believing (part 1)

December 13, 2008 at 12:59 am (Dead Sea scrolls, reasons to doubt)

Here’s why religion (mainly Christianity) just doesn’t make sense:

  1. There are multiple mistranslations. Venefica is one of them. Venefica instead of the “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.” Also, 666 (Revelation 13:17-18) is really suppose to be 616 according to the Dead Sea scrolls.
  2. How about those impossible ages of Noah (950) and Adam (930) and others? Sorry, but that’s a little impossible considering that the longest lifespan is currently 177 years.
  3. If you’ve ever read Letter to a Christian Nation, you’d know that Sam Harris uses Jesus’s own words against him and Christianity.
  4. The 10 Commandments appear three times! And each one is a slight variation from the last one.
  5. God hates shrimp and bacon. But they’re oh, so good.
  6. There’s the discrepancy of alma which in Hebrew means “young lady” instead of “virgin”.
  7. Giants, UFOs, dragons, even unicorns… oh my!
  8. Only 144,000 people are going to Heaven. Guess that means you’re shit out of luck.
  9. More to come. (Check out the reasons to doubt tag.)
