Exodus Buy-bull Part 1 of 3
Nov 11-Mon> 2013
So I’m back again with The Buy-bull Journal after 3 months of being away and this time we’ll be doing Exodus. I know I said 5 weeks but I got stuck doing research and writing.
This is continued from my Genesis Buy-bull Journal.
I started to do the new testament Matthew Buy-bull Journal yesterday and if you wanna check that out go there.
And yes I know this is a direct rip-off of The Bible Reloaded but they like me it seems and don’t seem to mind.
Check them out by the way, they’re really awesome! They really are the greatest!
I also started reading Bart Ehrman’s book Jesus Interrupted for an hour every day yesterday and found that it has some things regarding the whole bible, not just Jesus, or the new testament.
Anyway, rather than bore you with details, let’s get this over with.
1) Alright, well I remember these long family histories used to bother me, but yesterday actually wasn’t that bad. At least I can skip verses that’s fine since it gets this overwith faster.
“NOW these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob.”
2-4) WOW these names sure do look more normal than the names in Matthew at least. Hey I just got an awesome idea! Let’s tighten all these names up here and maybe get done faster.
“Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,
Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,
Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.”
5) Ok so Jacob had 70 kids, wonderful.
“And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.”
6) So how many years later was this supposed to be I wonder? You just gotta love how men have kids in their 80′s and onward in the bible. Very believable. NOT.
“And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation.”
7) Ok, boring now.
“And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them.”
8) Which of course history has no record of this king, or pharoah, or the other pharoah in this story and I can’t believe I forgot to mention it earlier.
Actually there is no record of the Exodus either:
“Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.”
9) Yeah again, no history of this Exodus anywhere.
“And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we:”
10) Having put out the fact that this is clearly historically fictious I feel like I am now just commenting on a book of fiction. Oh well.
Ok, now since these people were born in Egypt wouldn’t that technically make them Egyptian? Would this guy seriously even care?
“Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land.”
11) So I believe it’s saying that he enslaved the Israelites, Bottom line and put people in charge of them.
“Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses.”
12) Yeah, cause they really would care.
“But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.”
13) “Rigour”? Oh okay, “harsh”.
“And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour:”
14) Well it makes a great fairytale. Wait a second, no it doesn’t. WTF? I can’t believe I was reading this garbage in my bible storybook when I was 7.
“And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in morter, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigour.”
15) He “spake” not “spoke”? What’s the difference?
“And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah:”
16) Yeah there’s not only no record of this, but not only that HOW COULD THERE NOT BE?
“And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live.”
17) Well here’s a thought…. why wouldn’t God just magically make Pharaoh not be such a douche?
“But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.”
18) Yeah, I wonder why they would do that? Gimmee a break.
“And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them, Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children alive?”
19) Sorry, I bet this makes me look bad and a whole bunch of people get this verse, but I sure don’t.
“And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto them.”
20) They waxed? Well I guess they didn’t have laser treatment then.
“Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty.”
21) God made them houses did it? Really? Isn’t that interesting?
“And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses.”
22) And of course people would just go along with this? Really?
“And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive.”
Well that wasn’t as bad as Genesis was, so maybe this gets better as it goes along and isn’t so boring. Stupid I can handle, but boring, well I don’t have ADD but let’s just say I get bored real easy and have to read things several times. But at least I do.
Nov 13-Wed> 2013
Back for more commentary, of this dispicable book. I am going to quote something that was written about my NT blog yesterday to clear things up.
“All that writing and it’s mostly rhetoric. Not much worth replying to here. So far I’m unimpressed. Perhaps other posts are much better.”
First off, why would I care what you think? Secondly, this journal is for documented proof that I not only have read the bible but gave an attempt to understand it, in case religies accuse me of saying I didn’t at least try.
I am assuming that the imbecile who wrote that thinks that the entire point of me doing this journal is to debunk the bible. Actually no, I don’t have to. There already is no proof of the bible and it makes no sense and it’s historically unfactual and there is no evidence of God in the bible, or outside of it. I am merely pointing out what is already common knowledge and putting things into perspective for people.
If I can point a few things out along the way though regarding certain things that might make people think though, then why wouldn’t I? I know that in my last journal entry I said that “I can handle stupid”, but obviously I was wrong. I just had to encounter someone who was so stupid that I realized this.
Ok, enough of that, let’s get this over with:
1) Ok, Levi was the son of Jacob alright sure.
“AND there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi.”
2) So if he wasn’t a good baby what would she have done?
“And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months.”
3) My mind is still blown that Moses wrote this story and Genesis and didn’t remember this as a Baby, yet people believe God told all this to Moses.
Amusing that christians believe that God told all this to Moses, but don’t believe that Mohammed wrote the koran over 20 years from what the angel Gabriel said. I really don’t see the difference.
“And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river’s brink.”
4) Funny how we hear all these names throughout the bible of irrelevant people and people, but the sister never had a name. You’d think that God would have said the name of his own sister.
I mean if you were Moses and you wrote the first 5 books of the bible as is claimed by devout brainwashed trillions, wouldn’t you at least ask God what your sister’s name was? Think about this people.
“And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him.”
5) Ok, that’s hot. Well up til she finds the baby.
“And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river’s side; and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.”
6) Hey this is like Tarzan, but with no apes. Actually it’s like Mogli but without the wolves.
“And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews’ children.”
7) For that matter wouldn’t you want to say the name of the woman who saved your life and raised you as a son? Guess Moses didn’t have too much of an attachment.
“Then said his sister to Pharaoh’s daughter, Shall I go and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee?”
8) Well isn’t that special?
“And Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called the child’s mother.”
9) Well that’s kinda weird. It’s like she gets to have a baby minus all the work.
“And Pharaoh’s daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the woman took the child, and nursed it.”
10) So “Moses” is old Egyptian for “pull out of the water? Interesting.
“And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.”
11) So did he know his roots, or not? Guess someone told him.
“And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens: and he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brethren.”
12) After he ate his liver with flava beans and a nice Shante.
“And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.”
13) Uh, what? Ok maybe I’ll get a better app version soon. One that translates better. I mean WTF does this mean?
“And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong, Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow?”
14) Oh okay he’s saying “someone saw him kill the guy and he’s worried. Well look at that. Moses knew that killing was wrong and didn’t have a bible to tell him. Well he killed him anyway, but it shows that he did in fact know.
“And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us? intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? And Moses feared, and said, Surely this thing is known.”
15) And how about that? People actually have murder as a crime and didn’t need a bible to tell them it’s wrong and is a crime.
“Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a well.”
16) Yeah ok.
“Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father’s flock.”
17) Well this story sure has rushed through fast.
“And the shepherds came and drove them away: but Moses stood up and helped them, and watered their flock.”
18) Is it me, or does this remind you of an episode of The Incredible Hulk from the 70′s? You know how David Banner just goes everywhere and finds work? Damn I feel old. I just realized how few people actually remember that who might be reading this.
“And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, How is it that ye are come so soon to day?”
19) Since Moses is the one who wrote this I find it funny how he just doesn’t seem to say the names of any women here who interacted with him but there’s gotta be a hundred names we’ve heard so far that only get mentioned once and that’s it in Genesis.
“And they said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us, and watered the flock.”
20) How convenient for Moses.
“And he said unto his daughters, And where is he? why is it that ye have left the man? call him, that he may eat bread.”
21) So Moses is writing about himself here and finally gives a woman a name.
“And Moses was content to dwell with the man: and he gave Moses Zipporah his daughter.”
22) I’m missing something here. I don’t see the connection. What does “gershom” mean in whatever language he spoke? Does it mean “son of a stranger in a strange land” maybe?
Let’s look it up:
Ok, so the name means “sojourner”. Wherever that comes from.
Darn I read a little bit of spoiler there.
“And she bare him a son, and he called his name Gershom: for he said, I have been a stranger in a strange land.”
23) What the hell does this verse even mean? Were they happy about him dying? Were they sad? WTF?
“And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.”
24) Ok, so if God wanted to change it then why not simply manipulate the laws of the universe and change things with the same magic it used to create everything in 7 days?
“And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.”
25) Uh, if God respected them so much then it wouldn’t have them as slaves in the first place.
“And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect unto them.”
Ok, so to the douchbag who wrote on my blog his little condescending remarks about the “rhetoric.” Please go eat a nice big excrement sandwich and find someone who actually thinks you have anything worthwhile to say. Like maybe your psychiatrist.
Nov 15-Fri> 2013
Back for more punishment to a story that makes you bang your head against the wall knowing people believe it to be true.
I think it’s so funny how people sometimes say the bible is “well written” even if they don’t believe any of it.
Like this woman:
1) So I guess this explains his staff that they always showed Moses with in pictures like he was Gandoff from Lord of the rings or something. He was a shepherd.
“NOW Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.”
2) Yeah this just makes so much sense and is so believable.
“And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.”
3) The person who wrote this fairytale must have been smoking some burning bush when he wrote this.
“And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.”
4) Hmmm rather than magically teleporting Moses to heaven and talking to Moses itself, God does this burning bush thing. Well God had regular face to face conversations with Abraham in Genesis. Why not Moses?
“And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.”
5) Yeah, God is that much of a douche that it cares if Moses wears shoes while it talks to it.
As explained here:
“And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.”
6) Didn’t he already look at the bush? What’s the difference?
“Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.”
7) Ok people this is just mind-blowing.
Why didn’t God just magically make everything happen? Why wouldn’t God magically make Pharaoh let the Israelites go?
Please people, would you just give that some thought? This is nonsense.
“And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;”
8) God sure sounds like a powerless nothing.
“And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.”
9) So make them stop then “God”!
Control how they behave and make them stop.
“Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them.”
10) Seriously. Remember in the movie Star Trek: The Last Frontier, when they thought they found “God” but it turned out to be an evil space alien?
Why would God need a starship? Why would God need anything?
“Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.”
11) Oh Moses you’re just so humble.
“And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?”
12) So let’s just go along with this Moses. So Moses was ballsy enough to kill an Egyptian but not ballsy enough to say “hey God I’m not you’re little bitch ok”.
“And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.”
13) Why would God seriously need any other name but “God” right?
“And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?”
14) What a douche God is in this book. Well he wasn’t any better in Genesis, but hey, whadda ya do?
“And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.”
15) Oh ok, thaaaat God. Gotcha. STFU!
“And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.”
16) God is just soooo lazy.
“Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and say unto them, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, appeared unto me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt:”
17) So obviously there’s a lot of cows and bees there right? If there’s so much milk and honey.
“And I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt unto the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, unto a land flowing with milk and honey.”
18) Well that was easy.
“And they shall hearken to thy voice: and thou shalt come, thou and the elders of Israel, unto the king of Egypt, and ye shall say unto him, The LORD God of the Hebrews hath met with us: and now let us go, we beseech thee, three days’ journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God”.
19) And AGAIN I can’t say this enough. Why wouldn’t God just magically make Pharaoh let them go?
“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?”
“And I am sure that the king of Egypt will not let you go, no, not by a mighty hand.”
20) That’s nice. AGAIN why not just magically just make Pharaoh let the Israelites go? Why all the fuss. Why not just be neat and descreet?
“And I will stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt with all my wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and after that he will let you go.”
21) So God really does sound pathetic in this story.
“And I will give this people favour in the sight of the Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty:”
22) If God is supposed to be some all-wise master of the universe, then how come it wastes everyone’s time with this silly nonsense? Just appear to Pharaoh instead, since God is so into appearing to people. Be a burning bush for Pharaoh. I mean come on people, really think about this. I know you can.
What a stupid plan God is saying.
“But every woman shall borrow of her neighbour, and of her that sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: and ye shall put them upon your sons, and upon your daughters; and ye shall spoil the Egyptians.”
Nice! That was rather painless. Only 22 verses in that one.
Nov 17-Sun> 2013
Well I hope everyone has been enjoying reading along with me in both my Buy-bull Journals. I will be going on vacation though for 5 days and will be back this Friday night.
I will be back though whether you love it or hate it.
Alrighty, let’s get this story overwith about the life corrupting story known as “Exodus”.
1) I just love how this verse tries to bond with the skeptics and say “well yeah of course it sounds unbelievable”.
“AND Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The LORD hath not appeared unto thee.”
2) How did God not know what he had in his hand? Is God retarded?
“And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod.”
3) Funny how there is no record of inanimate objects becoming animals since the video camera was introduced.
Also funny how what God is doing here is making it’s existence known by actually showing it’s power!
Funny how that is all it would have to do to convince people it exists today, but doesn’t. Kinda like God isn’t real, or something and this story is just fictional nonsense.
“And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it.”
4) Again reminding people how for the 100th time how this is historically unevidenced and there is no record of Moses, or the entire Exodus happening.
“And the LORD said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand:”
5) Wouldn’t this be a good thing for God to do today, but on a greater scale?
“That they may believe that the LORD God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath appeared unto thee.”
6) Seriously? This is supposed to scare people? “NOOOO his hand turned white! AHHHH!!!!! RUN!!!!!!”
Imagine if he pulled a piece of string out of his nostril, or coin out of his ear!
“And the LORD said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow.”
7) “AHHHH His hand turned back to normal!!!!! NOOOO!!!!! Make it stop!!!!!
“And he said, Put thine hand into thy bosom again. And he put his hand into his bosom again; and plucked it out of his bosom, and, behold, it was turned again as his other flesh.”
8) Imagine how impressed a simple little magic act from a street magician would make them.
“And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee, neither hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign.”
9) And Spiderman got superhuman powers when bitten by a spider and didn’t die because it was a mutant spider and it’s venom mutates people instead of killing them.
“And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe also these two signs, neither hearken unto thy voice, that thou shalt take of the water of the river, and pour it upon the dry land: and the water which thou takest out of the river shall become blood upon the dry land.”
10) Then that makes it even more unbelievable that a God would have chosen an imbecile like Moses, but again reminding everyone how all God had to do was simply manipulate the forces of the universe and simply make Pharaoh let the Israelites go. Telepathy would be good.
“And Moses said unto the LORD, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.”
11) How about Moses mother and father? They made him.
You know his father who is some random guy from the house of Levi and you know, some woman.
“And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?”
12) Because speaking and making up things is just so hard.
“Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.”
13) Sorry, no idea what this means.
“And he said, O my Lord, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom thou wilt send.”
14) Well God sure sounds like a douche still. We don’t really see anything that makes this either logical, or reasonable. I mean why again would he be mad at Moses? Whatever.
“And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and he said, Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart.”
15) Let’s see. So God could do this, but not stop the nazis from gassing jewish people, rapists to stop raping, serial
killers to stop killing people and stop typhoons and Eartquakes, wars, human sacrifices, disease and famine?
Are religious people actually this stupid? WTF? How can smart people like John Lennox, or Alister McGrath actually believe this to be true? They can’t right? They must think that at least Exodus is just “theological” right. Mind completely blown.
“And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do.”
16) Then why not just chose Aaron in the first place instead of Moses?
“And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people: and he shall be, even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him instead of God.”
17) Is this where Tolkien got the idea then of Gandalf the wizard? Didn’t he have a staff too?
“And thou shalt take this rod in thine hand, wherewith thou shalt do signs.”
18) Well Jethro really was relevant and played a big part in this didn’t he? LOL
“And Moses went and returned to Jethro his father in law, and said unto him, Let me go, I pray thee, and return unto my brethren which are in Egypt, and see whether they be yet alive. And Jethro said to Moses, Go in peace.”
19) Well how did they die? God killed them? Well why not kill Pharaoh then? Oh wait a second. Why not just magically make Pharaoh let the Israelites go and they’ll be free?
“And the LORD said unto Moses in Midian, Go, return into Egypt: for all the men are dead which sought thy life.”
20) Now this is just becoming an episode of Seinfeld (a show about nothing).
He took the rod of God LOL Well they do say God is a man.
“And Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them upon an ass, and he returned to the land of Egypt: and Moses took the rod of God in his hand.”
21) Huh?! WTF?! Why would God make Pharaoh not want to do this? Oh this is so stupid!
“And the LORD said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go.”
22) AGAIN, do people not see how stupid this is? Why go through all this? Is God just bored?
“And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn:”
23) Okaaaaay there, thaaat’s nice. People should just follow this example and threaten to kill people’s babies to get what they want. God does.
“And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn.”
24) What? Huh? God met Moses and tried to kill him in a motel? This just gets more and more stupid.
“And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the LORD met him, and sought to kill him.”
25) Please let me know, if there are any brainwashed religious believers here who are reading this, how this is not completely retarded and wanna explain it to me in a way I’m not seeing where this doesn’t sound so completely stupid.
“Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband art thou to me.”
26) Alright now. I’m shaking my head here in awe and disbelief thinking how billions of people have actually based their life on this book and how I have just lost complete faith in humanity!
“So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband thou art, because of the circumcision.”
27) So now God’s talking to Aaron? So why again didn’t God just talk to Pharaoh? Even if it’s just in a dream, why not threaten him, levitate him, make his genitals fall off, SOMETHING?
Why would God do the most illogical, non-productive methods that just make God look like an idiot?
“And the LORD said to Aaron, Go into the wilderness to meet Moses. And he went, and met him in the mount of God, and kissed him.”
28) Ok, please believers who base their life on this idiotic story, WHY would God get Moses to tell Aaron what to say when God was already just talking to Aaron? Why not just skip the middle man?
“And Moses told Aaron all the words of the LORD who had sent him, and all the signs which he had commanded him.”
29) And nobody said to Moses “hey Moses, why wouldn’t God just kill Pharaoh and God puts someone in charge who likes us?”
“And Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the children of Israel:”
30) Of course they did. Kidding, no they didn’t.
“And Aaron spake all the words which the LORD had spoken unto Moses, and did the signs in the sight of the people.”
31) Now you gotta ask yourselves some questions:
a) Are all people this stupid and gullible?
b) If people were this easy to believe nonsense like this in the first place, then don’t you think they just believe ANY stupid story they’re told?
c) Can you not see that the whole bible might only be so popular because people were so gullible and stupid?
“And the people believed: and when they heard that the LORD had visited the children of Israel, and that he had looked upon their affliction, then they bowed their heads and worshipped.”
Ok well I hope today’s Journal entry gave everyone something to think about! I HOPE!
Anyways, back in 5 days when I come back from vacation. Don’t turn this channel.
Nov 23-Sat> 2013
Ok back from vacation after 5 days. Let’s see where we left off. Ok, so Moses and Aaron were talking with the elders and the elders just ate up everything they said.
Whew today is only 23 chapters. I did the Matthew NT Buy-bull late last night and Chapter 5 had like 48 chapters. Not what I wanted to come home to. Kinda like bein a kid again and startin your homework late Sunday after bein on March break and school is Monday morning and not knowing how much you had to finish.
1) Ok, so doesn’t anybody think when they’re reading this that if Pharaoh was such a douchbag that maybe he might simply laugh and say “ok guards kill them”?
“AND afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness.”
2) Again, he would just say “bye guys, thanks for the laughs. You’re dead”. Am I the only one thinking this?
“And Pharaoh said, Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go.”
3) Also, AGAIN, so why doesn’t big, bad, old, omnipotent God just telepathically make Pharaoh let them go? What am I missing here?
“And they said, The God of the Hebrews hath met with us: let us go, we pray thee, three days’ journey into the desert, and sacrifice unto the LORD our God; lest he fall upon us with pestilence, or with the sword.”
4) Uhhh, okay. So wild shot here. I think he’s saying “what the hell do you care about what the hell I do?” I think.
“And the king of Egypt said unto them, Wherefore do ye, Moses and Aaron, let the people from their works? get you unto your burdens.”
5) I think he’s saying “why are you slowing down production of stuff they could be doing? Time is productivity”. I think.
“And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now are many, and ye make them rest from their burdens.”
6) Ok, read verse 7 too.
“And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the people, and their officers, saying,”
7) So let’s get this straight. Pharaoh is now gonna be a total prickasaurus but isn’t gonna do anything to Moses and Aaron WHY again?
“Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore: let them go and gather straw for themselves.”
8) So it’s kinda funny that what christians don’t realize is that all this BS is supposedly because the Israelites who would later be called jews, are supposedly God’s people.
Do read John 8:42-45 in the NT to tell me how much sense this makes then:
Jesus tells the Jews they are the devils children. Yeah that makes so much sense.
“And the tale of the bricks, which they did make heretofore, ye shall lay upon them; ye shall not diminish ought thereof: for they be idle; therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God.”
9) So is God merely protecting Moses and Aaron? Ok, so why not either make Pharaoh be nice, or omnipotently make Pharaoh let the Israelites go.
“Let there more work be laid upon the men, that they may labour therein; and let them not regard vain words.”
10) Hmmm could this be somehow used as a strawman argument about being men without straw? Ok, that was cheezy and I won’t even pretend that was funny.
Hey WOW! I just got a wicked brainstorm for a future project! How about combining “The Wizard Of Oz” and “The 10 Commandments” and making it one movie? Someone send this idea to Seth Rogan!
“And the taskmasters of the people went out, and their officers, and they spake to the people, saying, Thus saith Pharaoh, I will not give you straw.”
11) Yeah king of the year here.
“Go ye, get you straw where ye can find it: yet not ought of your work shall be diminished.”
12) How do you make bricks with straw again? Hmmm maybe I shouldn’t comment if I really don’t know, but all I know is that one second Pharaoh was bitching about slowing down production and now he’s totally slowing it down himself.
“So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw.”
13) Yeah that makes total sense. That’s like McDonald’s telling it’s emplyees they have to kill their own cows and get their own bread to serve customers.
Duuuhhh. Who believes this crap?
“And the taskmasters hasted them, saying, Fulfil your works, your daily tasks, as when there was straw.”
14) This makes as much sense as saying that your rotweiler won’t bite you if you stop feeding it and start kicking it!
“And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh’s taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and demanded, Wherefore have ye not fulfilled your task in making brick both yesterday and to day, as heretofore?”
15) Yeah, Pharaoh, why not just kill Moses?
“Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried unto Pharaoh, saying, Wherefore dealest thou thus with thy servants?”
16) Well it is kinda stupid isn’t it?
“There is no straw given unto thy servants, and they say to us, Make brick: and, behold, thy servants are beaten; but the fault is in thine own people.”
17) Huh? Sorry. I don’t get it. Sacrifice to who’s lord? What?
“But he said, Ye are idle, ye are idle: therefore ye say, Let us go and do sacrifice to the LORD.”
18) Funny how when I read this all I can think about is how retarded the person who wrote this actually was, because of how unbelievably stupid it is, then I remember the countless billions who believe this was real and then I close my eyes and facepalm in my hand.
“Go therefore now, and work; for there shall no straw be given you, yet shall ye deliver the tale of bricks.”
19) Sorry folks. Again I am at a loss for what they mean here.
“And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in evil case, after it was said, Ye shall not minish ought from your bricks of your daily task.”
20) Who if course were completely unaffected by Pharaoh and Pharaoh couldn’t give a flying fart what they said, but just soooo logically decided to leave Moses and Aaron and bring productivity of his kingdom to a screeching halt.
“And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came forth from Pharaoh:”
21) Yeah, smooth move Ex-lax!
“And they said unto them, The LORD look upon you, and judge; because ye have made our savour to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to slay us.”
22) How about “hey God, you powerless prick! You sure are useless”. Maybe that would have been more appropriate.
“And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Lord, wherefore hast thou so evil entreated this people? why is it that thou hast sent me?”
23) Again for the millionth time. How do religious people think God is omnipotent and believe this bible at the same time?
Obviously God really isn’t that powerful.
“For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in thy name, he hath done evil to this people; neither hast thou delivered thy people at all.”
Well it’s great to be back. Please feel free to comment how anyone in their right mind would be considered intelligent by believing this actually happened again, or how this makes ANY sense?
Nov 25-Mon> 2013
Ok, well I just finished writing this entry of the Buy-bull and though there are quite a few geneologies in it I will say that there are a few WTF?! moments that are very interesting.
1) Ok, so then magically cause Pharaoh to just DO IT! Aren’t you supposed to be God, or something?
“Then the Lord said to Moses, “Now you shall see what I will do to Pharaoh. For with a strong hand he will let them go, and with a strong hand he will drive them out of his land.”
2) God sounds like such a doofus here.
“And God spoke to Moses and said to him: “I am the Lord.”
3) What was the whole point in saying this? “I appeared to them, but they didn’t know me by this name”. Like, who cares? People actually think it’s ok to assume that God would say such a vain, narcissistic statement? Why again?
“I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as God Almighty, but by My name Lord I was not known to them.”
4) Then why not just magically align the forces of the universe that you supposedly made God and make it happen?
“I have also established My covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, in which they were strangers.”
5) So if God remembered then why did it let it happen in the first place? Isn’t it supposed to be God?
“And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel whom the Egyptians keep in bondage, and I have remembered My covenant.”
6) Very odd isn’t it that there is no record of the Israelites ever being slaves in Egypt in the first place.
“Therefore say to the children of Israel: ‘I am the Lord; I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, I will rescue you from their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments.”
7) This had to have developed as a child’s bedtime story and they passed it off as being real.
“I will take you as My people, and I will be your God. Then you shall know that I am the Lord your God who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.”
8) Of course God could have sent some angels then to help Moses and did God’s dirty work but I don’t see that happening.
“And I will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; and I will give it to you as a heritage: I am the Lord.’”
9) That and Moses was a total psychopath who kills kids. Oh wait we haven’t gotten to that book yet. Sorry.
Oh wait he didn’t actually mean “children” of Israel, my oops.
“So Moses spoke thus to the children of Israel; but they did not heed Moses, because of anguish of spirit and cruel bondage.”
10) Yeah sure and so when was the last documented time God talked to someone since the bible and out of this tiny little area on the planet.
“And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,”
11) This is kinda like a parent sending their 5 year old on a 15 minute walk to go to a crackhouse to buy some crack and telling the dealer that they’ll bring the money next week.
“Go in, tell Pharaoh king of Egypt to let the children of Israel go out of his land.”
12) WTF?! LMFAO Did I seriously just read that? “Uncircumcised lips”?!
Ok Moses, here’s a thought for you….
DON’T TELL PHARAOH AND DON’T SHOW HIM YOUR BIRD! Simple!
“And Moses spoke before the Lord, saying, “The children of Israel have not heeded me. How then shall Pharaoh heed me, for I am of uncircumcised lips?”
13) How many times are they going to say this? Gee I wonder if Moses knows yet?
“Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, and gave them a command for the children of Israel and for Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.”
14) More geneologies. YAAY!
This is a command that God wants them to say? WTF?!
“These are the heads of their fathers’ houses: The sons of Reuben, the firstborn of Israel, were Hanoch, Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi. These are the families of Reuben.”
15) Blah blah blah blah zzzzzz
“And the sons of Simeon were Jemuel, Jamin, Ohad, Jachin, Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanite woman. These are the families of Simeon.”
16) Make it stop PLEASE!
“These are the names of the sons of Levi according to their generations: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. And the years of the life of Levi were one hundred and thirty-seven.”
17) As Elaine from Seinfeld would say “yada yada yada”
“The sons of Gershon were Libni and Shimi according to their families.”
18) And George from Seinfeld. Yada yada yada.
“And the sons of Kohath were Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel. And the years of the life of Kohath were one hundred and thirty-three.”
19) Don’t care.
“The sons of Merari were Mahli and Mushi. These are the families of Levi according to their generations.”
20) Huh? Ok, HELLO?! WTF? I had to read this several times over.
So Moses mother actually did have a name. FINALLY they mention it. Moses mother was also his aunt? Huh? So his dad did the wild thing with his aunt? Ok, whatever.
In case anyone is reading this and their mother is also their aunt, then I mean no disrespect. I just never met anyone in that position.
Wait, wouldn’t that also make Moses’s dad his cousin?
“Now Amram took for himself Jochebed, his father’s sister, as wife; and she bore him Aaron and Moses. And the years of the life of Amram were one hundred and thirty-seven.”
21) Ok here we go again, more boring geneologies.
“The sons of Izhar were Korah, Nepheg, and Zichri.”
“And the sons of Uzziel were Mishael, Elzaphan, and Zithri.”
“Aaron took to himself Elisheba, daughter of Amminadab, sister of Nahshon, as wife; and she bore him Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.”
“And the sons of Korah were Assir, Elkanah, and Abiasaph. These are the families of the Korahites.”
“Eleazar, Aaron’s son, took for himself one of the daughters of Putiel as wife; and she bore him Phinehas. These are the heads of the fathers’ houses of the Levites according to their families.”
26) Uhhhh….. huh?’ What? Why would we think they weren’t the same Moses and Aaron again? Well besides the fact that this story never happened and this isn’t real.
“These are the same Aaron and Moses to whom the Lord said, “Bring out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their armies.”
27) Yeah no kidding. Ok this really indicates the mentality of the people who read this story I guess and think it’s real. It actually has to tell people to make sure that they know they are the same Moses and Aaron. WTF?!
“These are the ones who spoke to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring out the children of Israel from Egypt. These are the same Moses and Aaron.”
28) This story just drags and drags. GET IT OVER WITH!
“And it came to pass, on the day the Lord spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt,”
29) Yeah ok God, since you’re so lazy.
“that the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “I am the Lord. Speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say to you.”
30) AGAIN with the uncircumcised lips thing? WTF?! Why did it matter again?
Also, this kinda should show people the mentality of the people this is based on.
Aswell as the fact that. MOSES DOESN’T NEED TO SHOW HIM HIS BIRD! WTF?! I mean does Pharaoh know? Is he gonna be afraid he’ll hide a rock in his foreskin to throw at him, or something? Who cares?!
“But Moses said before the Lord, “Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh heed me?”
This makes me want to watch the movie the 10 Commandments and do an article on it. Guess I’ll make that a project after I’m finished doing both Exodus and Matthew Buy-bulls. I’ll be taking some time off to do blogwork.
Nov 27-Wed> 2013
Well in today’s story I bring up a view things I want religies to think about. These things are magic and why is there magic and how do people interpret magic in the bible and outside the bible?
1) So God is making Moses seem
like God to Pharaoh, according to God? Ok so wouldn’t Pharaoh wonder how Moses doesn’t telepathically make Pharaoh do it?
Again, why wouldn’t God just MAKE it happen? Why did he need Moses?
“So the Lord said to Moses: “See, I have made you as God to Pharaoh, and Aaron your brother shall be your prophet.”
2) Do people not see that God in this story is just a drama queen? I mean seriously, why is all this neccessary?
“You shall speak all that I command you. And Aaron your brother shall tell Pharaoh to send the children of Israel out of his land.”
3) Harden Pharaoh’s heart? Why would God do that? Isn’t that sort of well, DUMB? Why is God saying he is going to make things worse by being an even bigger prick than Pharaoh? Real
big of you God. How mature and brilliant you are.
“And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and multiply My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt.”
4) What a stupid plan! Then to top it off these people kill your son and then hitler kills over 7 million of them anyways! God is just brilliant. NOT!
“But Pharaoh will not heed you, so that I may lay My hand on Egypt and bring My armies and My people, the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments.”
5) More unsurpassed narcissism eh God? Nice! So tell us again why you’re so good and wonderful?
“And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I stretch out My hand on Egypt and bring out the children of Israel from among them.”
6) Well aren’t they just badass then?
“Then Moses and Aaron did so; just as the Lord commanded them, so they did.”
7) WHAT?! Seriously? 80 years old?! Now please hear me out ok? All religies who are reading this… wouldn’t God have picked somebody younger? I mean seriously, think about this, if you were God would you have picked some old dude like Moses, or someone maybe a bit younger? Aaron too?
“And Moses was eighty years old and Aaron eighty-three years old when they spoke to Pharaoh.”
8) Funny how these interactions with God speaking ended AFTER the bible isn’t it?
“Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying,”
9) Well what a well thought out plan. A plan that I can think of an endless number of better suggestions.
How about Moses staff he has turns Pharaoh into a snake, or a pillar of salt like what happened to Lot’s wife in Genesis? An infinite number of better things could happen then this STUPID plan in this stupid fictious story.
“When Pharaoh speaks to you, saying, ‘Show a miracle for yourselves,’ then you shall say to Aaron, ‘Take your rod and cast it before Pharaoh, and let it become a serpent.’”
10) So God did this eh? How come it could do this but not make Pharaoh suddenly have a heart attack and die, or give Moses superhuman strength like Samson and beat them all up?
“So Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh, and they did so, just as the Lord commanded. And Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and before his servants, and it became a serpent.”
11) So now I REALLY want people to think about this ok? Do they not see what this is saying? It’s saying that there are magicians and sorcerers!
Do christians believe in magicians and sorcerers? Not normally. If there were magicians and sorcerers then why wouldn’t God simply cancel out the magical power of the universe if it really wanted people to worship it!
For that matter, why couldn’t Jesus have just been a magician with a few good tricks?
There actually is a Jesus Myth that Jesus was an Egyptian magician and nothing else. How does that grab you?
“But Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers; so the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments.”
12) So if God is the omnipotent master of the universe then how was it possible for the other snakes to form in the first place?
“For every man threw down his rod, and they became serpents. But Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods.”
13) Brilliant! What a stupid plan!
“And Pharaoh’s heart grew hard, and he did not heed them, as the Lord had said.”
14) Well duh. Yeah great plan God. You’re just so smart and powerful.
“So the Lord said to Moses: “Pharaoh’s heart is hard; he refuses to let the people go.”
15) Also, again why wouldn’t Pharaoh just kill them again?
“Go to Pharaoh in the morning, when he goes out to the water, and you shall stand by the river’s bank to meet him; and the rod which was turned to a serpent you shall take in your hand.”
16) I am no psychologist, but does any sane human being actually think this is how Pharaoh, or any human being would talk, or act?
“And you shall say to him, ‘The Lord God of the Hebrews has sent me to you, saying, “Let My people go, that they may serve Me in the wilderness”; but indeed, until now you would not hear!”
17) So let’s get this wonderful plan straight again. God is going to turn the water into blood. Does anybody actually wonder where the blood came from?
Think about where blood comes from and then ask yourself why God couldn’t just turn the water into something inorganic. What kind of blood?
“Thus says the Lord: “By this you shall know that I am the Lord. Behold, I will strike the waters which are in the river with the rod that is in my hand, and they shall be turned to blood.”
18) Uh yeah about this. Wouldn’t this also mean that the Israelites and Moses will suffer too? Isn’t that rather dumb of God?
“And the fish that are in the river shall die, the river shall stink, and the Egyptians will loathe to drink the water of the river.”’”
19) Isn’t that a little gross for a God to do? Isn’t all the blood and gore supposed to be a demon thing? Not that there is such a thing as demons, but doesn’t anybody just kinda misplace the blood and stink a little bit?
“Then the Lord spoke to Moses, “Say to Aaron, ‘Take your rod and stretch out your hand over the waters of Egypt, over their streams, over their rivers, over their ponds, and over all their pools of water, that they may become blood. And there shall be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in buckets of wood and pitchers of stone.’”
20) Yeah again, no record of this in Egyptian history, or anywhere else for that matter.
WTF is with all the dramatics again?
“And Moses and Aaron did so, just as the Lord commanded. So he lifted up the rod and struck the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh and in the sight of his servants. And all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood.”
21) So what exactly were the Isaelites drinking again then?
“The fish that were in the river died, the river stank, and the Egyptians could not drink the water of the river. So there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt.”
22) Magicians of Egypt? Isn’t that funny how it’s saying that there are magicians?
If God is all powerful wouldn’t it just cancel all other magic out?
I gotta ask people. Has anyone ever thought Jesus was just some magician from Egypt and not really God, or the son of God?
That is one of many plausible Jesus Myth theories by the way:
“Then the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments; and Pharaoh’s heart grew hard, and he did not heed them, as the Lord had said.”
23) Uh didn’t God for whatever stupid reason want Pharaoh’s heart to be hardened?
“And Pharaoh turned and went into his house. Neither was his heart moved by this.”
24) Yes and the Israelites.
“So all the Egyptians dug all around the river for water to drink, because they could not drink the water of the river.”
25) Oh this plan just gets better and better.
“And seven days passed after the Lord had struck the river.”
Ok, so am I saying I believe in magic, well no. Do I believe in illusionists? definitely. There are thousands of them now and I’m sure there were a lot back then too.
Nov 29-Fri> 2013
So let’s see if today’s Buy-bull entry might have at least one single thing that makes sense.
Nope. Just read it. Completely stupid.
1) So God is showing Pharaoh what a narcissistic douche it is.
“And the Lord spoke to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord: “Let My people go, that they may serve Me.”
2) I still don’t see the point in all the drama instead of God just making Pharaoh do this.
“But if you refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all your territory with frogs.”
3) Kinda sounds like God just wanted to be a jerk to people. People still just love to say God is love, or God is full of love, or that God is a maximally moral being, Obviously not.
“So the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into your house, into your bedroom, on your bed, into the houses of your servants, on your people, into your ovens, and into your kneading bowls.”
4) So frogs appear from nowhere. How about simply causing a virus out of nowhere and make Pharaoh sick, tell Moses to tell Pharaoh that he’ll only get better if he let’s the Jews go.
“And the frogs shall come up on you, on your people, and on all your servants.”’”
5) So instead of just making Pharaoh let the jews go with his omnipotent God powers, he has to waste everyones time.
Kinda odd that there was no one to save the jews from Hitler and turn the nazis water into blood, or frogs. There really wasn’t anything supernatural to save them.
Odd that there hasn’t been anything supernaturally proven since the bible was written & none of the things in the bible were proven either.
“Then the Lord spoke to Moses, “Say to Aaron, ‘Stretch out your hand with your rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come up on the land of Egypt.’”
6) How about a sharknado instead? Imagine if a sharknado were created?
“So Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt, and the frogs came up and covered the land of Egypt.”
7) So Moses and Aaron are magicians now? Seriously? What did they do?
“And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs on the land of Egypt.”
8) Well that was easy wasn’t it?
Obviously he was convinced.
“Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, “Entreat the Lord that He may take away the frogs from me and from my people; and I will let the people go, that they may sacrifice to the Lord.”
9) Huh? He’s telling them to destroy the frogs? They won’t just magically disappear?
“And Moses said to Pharaoh, “Accept the honor of saying when I shall intercede for you, for your servants, and for your people, to destroy the frogs from you and your houses, that they may remain in the river only.”
10) As I pointed out before, isn’t it kinda odd that Pharaoh didn’t kill Moses and Aaron already?
“So he said, “Tomorrow.” And he said, “Let it be according to your word, that you may know that there is no one like the Lord our God.”
11) Well gee that sure is magical. The frogs couldn’t just jump in the water on their own?
“And the frogs shall depart from you, from your houses, from your servants, and from your people. They shall remain in the river only.”
12) That’s funny how God wouldn’t just know.
“Then Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh. And Moses cried out to the Lord concerning the frogs which He had brought against Pharaoh.”
13) Those poor frogs.
“So the Lord did according to the word of Moses. And the frogs died out of the houses, out of the courtyards, and out of the fields.”
14) So couldn’t they just bury them if they smelled so bad? I mean it would only take a day. Some people dig, some people scoop and bury em.
“They gathered them together in heaps, and the land stank.”
15) Well that was God’s wonderful plan was to harden Pharoah’s heart.
“But when Pharaoh saw that there was relief, he hardened his heart and did not heed them, as the Lord had said.”
16) So let’s see. God can magically make frogs and lice but not kill off Pharaoh and not make Pharaoh just want to let the jews go. Brilliant.
“So the Lord said to Moses, “Say to Aaron, ‘Stretch out your rod, and strike the dust of the land, so that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.’”
17) So right after Moses stopped the plague and Pharaoh seen that it was done, wouldn’t he just kill Moses and Aaron if he was that much of a skidmark?
“And they did so. For Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod and struck the dust of the earth, and it became lice on man and beast. All the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt.”
18) Wait a second… what enchantment? They didn’t do anything. They were just spokesmen for an invisible psychopath.
Now this is what I don’t get. Was this a typo? It says that they failed to bring forth the lice, so lice appeared. Huh?
“Now the magicians so worked with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not. So there were lice on man and beast.”
19) So why not have a really hard heart and kill the 2 of them? Or why not give Pharaoh a really hard heart attack?
“Then the magicians said to Pharaoh, “This is the finger of God.” But Pharaoh’s heart grew hard, and he did not heed them, just as the Lord had said.”
20) So we now know that god is not worthy of worship since it is not all powerful and doesn’t want to stop evil things from happening. Very pointless don’t you think?
“And the Lord said to Moses, “Rise early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh as he comes out to the water. Then say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord: “Let My people go, that they may serve Me.”
21) This reminds me completely of this famous quote by Richard Dawkins:
“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”
“Or else, if you will not let My people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies on you and your servants, on your people and into your houses. The houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground on which they stand.”
22) So Moses is scaring people with bugs because God supposedly is causing and controling the bugs, but can’t cause a poisonous spider to bite Pharaoh and save a whole lotta drama and pain.
“And in that day I will set apart the land of Goshen, in which My people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there, in order that you may know that I am the Lord in the midst of the land.”
23) Ok so AGAIN why wouldn’t Pharaoh just kill them?
“I will make a difference between My people and your people. Tomorrow this sign shall be.”
24) So God is so powerless and pathetic it has to use bugs to do it’s dirty work? That’s just sad.
“And the Lord did so. Thick swarms of flies came into the house of Pharaoh, into his servants’ houses, and into all the land of Egypt. The land was corrupted because of the swarms of flies.”
25) Yeah God sure loves those sacrifices. Why again does it need them? Will it die if it doesn’t get sacrifices?
“Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, “Go, sacrifice to your God in the land.”
26) Well that actually was a very nice and mature thing for Moses to say.
“And Moses said, “It is not right to do so, for we would be sacrificing the abomination of the Egyptians to the Lord our God. If we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, then will they not stone us?”
27) Isn’t demanding “sacrificing” kind of a thing that a psychopath would do? Seriously.
“Why would God expect them to travel 3 days though? Couldn’t they just make a sacrifice nearby?”
“We will go three days’ journey into the wilderness and sacrifice to the Lord our God as He will command us.”
28) Oh no you dinent?!
“So Pharaoh said, “I will let you go, that you may sacrifice to the Lord your God in the wilderness; only you shall not go very far away. Intercede for me.”
29) Why do religies not see that a normal human being would not behave, or react like Pharaoh is here?
“Then Moses said, “Indeed I am going out from you, and I will entreat the Lord, that the swarms of flies may depart tomorrow from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people. But let Pharaoh not deal deceitfully anymore in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the Lord.”
30) What does it mean “entreated”? Couldn’t it just say “talked to”. For that matter, isn’t God just telepathic anyway?
“So Moses went out from Pharaoh and entreated the Lord.”
31) So he commanded the flies, but not the frogs, or Pharaoh? Well that makes sense. NO IT DOESN’T!
“And the Lord did according to the word of Moses; He removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people. Not one remained.”
32) So clearly the writer of this wrote this for children right? Only a child would be stupid enough to believe this to be true. Oh wait a sec. I forgot how dumb the world really is.
“But Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also; neither would he let the people go.”
Well this story just gets dumber and dumber and the more I read the more I cant believe anyone is stupid enough to believe a word.
Dec 1-Sun> 2013
Today’s bible is a little different. God shows how loving and compassionate it is and not even a little psychopathic, petty, or narcissistic.
Just kidding of course. It’s the same old stuff.
1) Ok I had to look again to make sure I didn’t have yesterday’s chapter, This is like deja vu here. Same old threats, said the same way.
“Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go in to Pharaoh and tell him, ‘Thus says the Lord God of the Hebrews: “Let My people go, that they may serve Me.”
2) So more brokenrecorditus from God. Interesting that in Matthew in the new testament I’m reading in my other Bu-bull Journal, Jesus is telepathic, but God here really has no telepathic powers of any kind. God is really a wimp here. Well so is Jesus really when you think about it.
“For if you refuse to let them go, and still hold them,”
3) Isn’t that a wonderful loving God? So wonderful and caring that it murders it’s innocent animals.
For that matter, don’t people ever wonder that if God really even was caring at all it wouldn’t allow animals to suffer by the trillions and trillions just so they could be something’s food?
“behold, the hand of the Lord will be on your cattle in the field, on the horses, on the donkeys, on the camels, on the oxen, and on the sheep—a very severe pestilence.”
4) Also, reminding people that Moses supposedly wrote this which of course he didn’t.
Again also, no record of this outside of the bible. Wouldn’t you think this would happen that someone recorded this?
“And the Lord will make a difference between the livestock of Israel and the livestock of Egypt. So nothing shall die of all that belongs to the children of Israel.”’
5) So again, more drama from psychopath narcissist God.
“Then the Lord appointed a set time, saying, “Tomorrow the Lord will do this thing in the land.”
6) Sounds very caring, especially for the Egyptians who were actually good people and just under Pharaohs orders. Nice god.
“So the Lord did this thing on the next day, and all the livestock of Egypt died; but of the livestock of the children of Israel, not one died.”
7) So what we’re going on here is that everything that God has done here is:
a) completely illogical
b) undocumented and unproven
c) completely evil and psychopathic
Why again did God say “he wanted to harden Pharaoh’s heart”? Great plan.
“Then Pharaoh sent, and indeed, not even one of the livestock of the Israelites was dead. But the heart of Pharaoh became hard, and he did not let the people go.”
8) So if God is omnipotent then why do the drama again? Wouldn’t it be better to just MAKE Pharaoh let the israelites go?
“So the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Take for yourselves handfuls of ashes from a furnace, and let Moses scatter it toward the heavens in the sight of Pharaoh.”
9) Well God does love misery right? So what other reason could God be doing this than because it enjoys misery and loves showing off.
Interesting how there have been no examples of God since 2000 years and only documented in a book of nonsense and contradictions.
“And it will become fine dust in all the land of Egypt, and it will cause boils that break out in sores on man and beast throughout all the land of Egypt.”
10) How pleasant.
“Then they took ashes from the furnace and stood before Pharaoh, and Moses scattered them toward heaven. And they caused boils that break out in sores on man and beast.”
11) Why were there magicians again? Couldn’t God just cancel out all their magic power in the first place? Wouldn’t all magic power logically come from God in the first place?
“And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils, for the boils were on the magicians and on all the Egyptians.”
12) So if he knew already, then why not do another strategy instead of all the drama filled plagues.
“But the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh; and he did not heed them, just as the Lord had spoken to Moses.”
13) So hey Pharaoh, here’s a suggestion, since these 2 guys are causing all these problems and you’re already a wanker, why don’t you just kill them?
“Then the Lord said to Moses, “Rise early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh, and say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord God of the Hebrews: “Let My people go, that they may serve Me,”
14) Well how about that eh? God is having a contest to see who can be the biggest jerk. So far it seems that God is winning.
“for at this time I will send all My plagues to your very heart, and on your servants and on your people, that you may know that there is none like Me in all the earth.”
15) So why not just tell Pharaoh yourself God? I mean, you’re already talking to Moses, you’re already telling Moses to tell them your message. Why not just tell Pharaoh? Why the drama?
“Now if I had stretched out My hand and struck you and your people with pestilence, then you would have been cut off from the earth.”
16) What I still don’t follow is why anyone would think that God was either wise, or loving when obviously it isn’t either.
“But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth.”
17) Well Pharaoh might not be the brightest guy, but at least he’s showing one good example and that is that he’s standing up to a bully (God) while God is simply saying “let people walk all over you and be a weakling”.
“As yet you exalt yourself against My people in that you will not let them go.”
18) Well that sure is impressive God, not nearly as impressive as not doing all this and just magically cause Pharaoh to let them go on their own.
“Behold, tomorrow about this time I will cause very heavy hail to rain down, such as has not been in Egypt since its founding until now.”
19) Uh, that’s funny. Didn’t God already kill ALL the livestock in verse 6?
“Therefore send now and gather your livestock and all that you have in the field, for the hail shall come down on every man and every animal which is found in the field and is not brought home; and they shall die.”’”
20) I guess these are animals they got from another country since God killed them already in verse 6.
“He who feared the word of the Lord among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his livestock flee to the houses.”
21) Yeah cause they deserved that because of Pharaoh. That makes so much sense.
“But he who did not regard the word of the Lord left his servants and his livestock in the field.”
22) Again, if God is the one doing this then why would it need Moses to do anything?
“Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt—on man, on beast, and on every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.”
23) Fire? Hail is one thing, but fire?
“And Moses stretched out his rod toward heaven; and the Lord sent thunder and hail, and fire darted to the ground. And the Lord rained hail on the land of Egypt.”
24) So yeah wouldn’t the fire melt the hail and just turn it into, well…. rain? Wouldn’t the rain put out the fire?
“So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, so very heavy that there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.”
25) All because God is a psychopathic narcissist and a bully. How nice.
“And the hail struck throughout the whole land of Egypt, all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail struck every herb of the field and broke every tree of the field.”
26) I guess God was just protecting the Israelites so that there would be more of them for Hitler to put into gas ovens and torture later. God knew about how Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, so wouldn’t God already know the Jews would kill Jesus too?
“Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, there was no hail.”
27) So if Pharaoh was already such a douche, then why not just let them go, realize you are beat and just not say anything?
“And Pharaoh sent and called for Moses and Aaron, and said to them, “I have sinned this time. The Lord is righteous, and my people and I are wicked.”
28) Or how about Pharaoh just tortures them until the rain and hail are stopped?
“Entreat the Lord, that there may be no more mighty thundering and hail, for it is enough. I will let you go, and you shall stay no longer.”
29) Uh yeah how about Pharaoh would just whip them with a cane until they stopped the hail, oh and the fire.
“So Moses said to him, “As soon as I have gone out of the city, I will spread out my hands to the Lord; the thunder will cease, and there will be no more hail, that you may know that the earth is the Lord’s.”
30) I love how God just keeps this going. It could stop this at any time, but doesn’t. I suppose cause it didn’t have enough people back then to torture and kill on a regular bases, now it does.
“But as for you and your servants, I know that you will not yet fear the Lord God.”
31) So let’s just pretend that there is some kind of truth to this story. Except that Moses was just a crazy dude who said stupid stuff and Pharaoh thought he was amusing so he didn’t kill him and Aaron was his older brother who looked after Moses bevause he was special and all these plagues happened over a 10 year period and Moses never made predictions, but simply brought stuff up during while it was happening.
“Now the flax and the barley were struck, for the barley was in the head and the flax was in bud.”
32) Which destroying would again only harm innocent people who had nothing to do with this, like maybe the woman who saved Moses as a baby. Unless God killed her off already cause it was bored.
“But the wheat and the spelt were not struck, for they are late crops.”
33) Well God sure must be having fun.
“So Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh and spread out his hands to the Lord; then the thunder and the hail ceased, and the rain was not poured on the earth.”
34) Ok so kill Pharaoh then God and quit the drama.
“And when Pharaoh saw that the rain, the hail, and the thunder had ceased, he sinned yet more; and he hardened his heart, he and his servants.”
35) So you gotta wonder now if God was just making Pharaoh not release the israelites so it could make itself look good.
“So the heart of Pharaoh was hard; neither would he let the children of Israel go, as the Lord had spoken by Moses.”
Okay well if this wasn’t just a story that you tell your kids how much God is an uncaring psychopath then I don’t know what to tell you besides “please seek medical help, you really need it”.
Dec 9-Mon> 2013
More of the lovely plagues and stories of God the fictional psychopath.
Enjoy. I will say that so far Exodus hasn’t been as bad as Genesis was. Still really bad of course, but not AS bad.
1) WTF?! It’s the same thing each time. Again what is the point of hardening Pharaoh’s heart? This is so dumb.
“Now the Lord said to Moses, “Go in to Pharaoh; for I have hardened his heart and the hearts of his servants, that I may show these signs of Mine before him,”
2) So AGAIN, wouldn’t the logical thing be to tell Pharaoh himself in dream, or just magically make Pharaoh do stuff?
“and that you may tell in the hearing of your son and your son’s son the mighty things I have done in Egypt, and My signs which I have done among them, that you may know that I am the Lord.”
3) Ok, so if Pharaoh was just a wanker, wouldn’t he just kill the 2 of them? Seriously people, think about this.
“So Moses and Aaron came in to Pharaoh and said to him, “Thus says the Lord God of the Hebrews: ‘How long will you refuse to humble yourself before Me? Let My people go, that they may serve Me.”
4) Drama queen God, at it again.
“Or else, if you refuse to let My people go, behold, tomorrow I will bring locusts into your territory.”
5) While God sits comfortable wherever it is.
“And they shall cover the face of the earth, so that no one will be able to see the earth; and they shall eat the residue of what is left, which remains to you from the hail, and they shall eat every tree which grows up for you out of the field.”
6) All because God couldn’t just do things itself, like kill Pharaoah, make Pharaoh be nice. God really doesn’t seem very omnipotent here, just annoying.
“They shall fill your houses, the houses of all your servants, and the houses of all the Egyptians—which neither your fathers nor your fathers’ fathers have seen, since the day that they were on the earth to this day.’” And he turned and went out from Pharaoh.”
7) Way to bring suffering God on people you created.
“Then Pharaoh’s servants said to him, “How long shall this man be a snare to us? Let the men go, that they may serve the Lord their God. Do you not yet know that Egypt is destroyed?”
8) Well is he going to, or not? This is the most ridiculously unbelievable story I’ve ever read. Oh wait a second, there were like 10 stories in Genesis that were just as retarded, if not more.
“So Moses and Aaron were brought again to Pharaoh, and he said to them, “Go, serve the Lord your God. Who are the ones that are going?”
9) So just say “everybody and all of our stuff” instead.
“And Moses said, “We will go with our young and our old; with our sons and our daughters, with our flocks and our herds we will go, for we must hold a feast to the Lord.”
10) So, is caving now then?
“Then he said to them, “The Lord had better be with you when I let you and your little ones go! Beware, for evil is ahead of you.”
11) Well it’s about time.
“Not so! Go now, you who are men, and serve the Lord, for that is what you desired.” And they were driven out from Pharaoh’s presence.”
12) Huh? What am I missing here? Did Pharaoh not say they could go? Then he’s STILL unleashing the locusts? WTF?!
“Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come upon the land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land—all that the hail has left.”
13) Well that just makes sooo much sense. He said they could leave. Is this a bad copy of the bible I have? I copied and pasted it right off the internet.
“So Moses stretched out his rod over the land of Egypt, and the Lord brought an east wind on the land all that day and all that night. When it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts.”
14) God sure is a douche that’s for sure.
“And the locusts went up over all the land of Egypt and rested on all the territory of Egypt. They were very severe; previously there had been no such locusts as they, nor shall there be such after them.”
15) All while God watched comfortably while so many people suffered.
“For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the land was darkened; and they ate every herb of the land and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left. So there remained nothing green on the trees or on the plants of the field throughout all the land of Egypt.”
16) But he already said they could go, so what is he saying now?
“Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste, and said, “I have sinned against the Lord your God and against you.”
17) Of course he would do that, but why wouldn’t he have killed Moses and Aaron after the first time and why would God go through all of this unneccessary nonsense.
The ONLY 2 options are that this never happened, or God is a psychopathic narcissist, who enjoys suffering.
“Now therefore, please forgive my sin only this once, and entreat the Lord your God, that He may take away from me this death only.”
18) Oh get this overwith.
“So he went out from Pharaoh and entreated the Lord.”
19) So why wouldn’t God have just made a bunch of poisonous insects and snakes attack Pharaoh in the first place.
“And the Lord turned a very strong west wind, which took the locusts away and blew them into the Red Sea. There remained not one locust in all the territory of Egypt.”
20) Huh? Why would God do that? What is the point?
“But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he did not let the children of Israel go.”
21) What a pointlessly stupid story that makes no sense whatsoever.
“Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, darkness which may even be felt.”
22) Why did God need Moses to do anything if it wasn’t for drama and effect? Well of course this never happened.
“So Moses stretched out his hand toward heaven, and there was thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days.”
23) Ah, well isn’t that typical though? God, the cause of so much suffering of children. The egyptian children in this case. Same old, same old.
“They did not see one another; nor did anyone rise from his place for three days. But all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.”
24) So is the problem here that Pharaoh is haggling here? That he won’t fully give into the demands? Well it doesn’t really even matter since this never even happened. Not because of a god, or Moses, or because a Pharaoh wouldn’t give in to the demands.
“Then Pharaoh called to Moses and said, “Go, serve the Lord; only let your flocks and your herds be kept back. Let your little ones also go with you.”
25) Uh didn’t God already kill eveything? What does God need sacrifices for?
“But Moses said, “You must also give us sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice to the Lord our God.”
26) Oh so the Israelite livestock is fine. Suuuure it was. Did I also mention before how there was no record of the Israelites ever being slaves in egypt?
“Our livestock also shall go with us; not a hoof shall be left behind. For we must take some of them to serve the Lord our God, and even we do not know with what we must serve the Lord until we arrive there.”
27) Well why would the lord be so stupid?
“But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he would not let them go.”
28) Well that makes sense doesn’t it?
“Then Pharaoh said to him, “Get away from me! Take heed to yourself and see my face no more! For in the day you see my face you shall die!”
29) And all the while God would just be watching this and laughing. How stupid a thing to think.
“So Moses said, “You have spoken well. I will never see your face again.”
So how do you rationally read this book, or chapter, or any other book in the bible and still either believe it happened, or believe this is the god you worship, or even believe in God at all?
Dec 11-Wed> 2013
NICE! Are my eyes deceiving me? Are there in fact only 10 verses in this chapter? That’s awesome!
Exodus chapter 11:1-10
1) So let’s get this straight:
a) God doesn’t have to do this last plague, but it is anyway.
b) God is the one who hardened Pharaoh’s heart in the first place, God even said it did.
c) God didn’t need to do any of the plagues in the first place to make Pharaoh release the Israelites, but is doing one more plague on top of all the other ones anyway.
d) Moses and Aaron are fine with all this.
“And the Lord said to Moses, “I will bring one more plague on Pharaoh and on Egypt. Afterward he will let you go from here. When he lets you go, he will surely drive you out of here altogether.”
2) Huh? Why does God care about gold?
“Speak now in the hearing of the people, and let every man ask from his neighbor and every woman from her neighbor, articles of silver and articles of gold.”
3) Well isn’t that great of Moses to say about himself since he supposedly wrote this.
“And the Lord gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants and in the sight of the people.”
4) Again, why all the drama? Why does God have to go through all this?
“Then Moses said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘About midnight I will go out into the midst of Egypt;”
5) Anybody who says that “God is love, or is completely moral and is just, is completely out of their mind. The bottom line is that the god of the old testament is far more evil than the also fictional devil. If they think differently about what the god of the bible is described then they aren’t reading it properly.
“and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on his throne, even to the firstborn of the female servant who is behind the handmill, and all the firstborn of the animals.”
6) Well obviously the riots last year and revolution were a bigger cry. Also, there is no record of this ever happening.
“Then there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as was not like it before, nor shall be like it again.”
7) Drama queen God.
“But against none of the children of Israel shall a dog move its tongue, against man or beast, that you may know that the Lord does make a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.’”
8) Well I guess God sure is happy about being right and all after all it’s unnecessary plagues caused so much suffering.
“And all these your servants shall come down to me and bow down to me, saying, ‘Get out, and all the people who follow you!’ After that I will go out.” Then he went out from Pharaoh in great anger.”
9) What a narcissistic wanker God is.
“But the Lord said to Moses, “Pharaoh will not heed you, so that My wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.”
10) Well AGAIN why would God harden the heart of Pharaoh in the first place? This is a long pointless story that God not only was a total prick about, but shows nothing that shows any intelligence, morals, or love.
“So Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh; and the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he did not let the children of Israel go out of his land.”
You know this story is just another thing that should show people how pointless, illogical and stupid religion really is but it doesn’t. How anyone in their right mind could believe this story is real, or that God is real based on this story is something that completely lacks any grip on reality.
This should really be proof that religion is nothing but brainwashing and I really can’t see how people don’t think so.
Dec 13-Fri> 2013
Ok well here’s day 2 of being back on a new blog that I made specifically just for this Journal. There’s only been like 10 people who have read it since I closed my Twitter account and old blog.
Guess I’ll have to pop on Twitter and start the account for a few hours and advertise this Buy-bull a bit. Maybe.
1) Oh boy I can only imagine what the psychopath of all psychopaths is saying. Not Moses, although he was a definite psychopath for sure.
“Now the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,”
2) Huh?! As opposed to what?! How is this any different than saying your year starts in January?
“This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.”
3) What does that mean? He’ll kill the lamb, or just eat one? WTF?! I mean seriously, this is craziness! People actually believe that God gives a flying crap and demands that people kill/eat a lamb on that date every year?! And I’m the bad guy for speaking out against this? Even worse than that, I’m the bad guy to other Atheists for calling these people idiots.
I mean seriously, seriously think about this. Does anybody think that maaaaaybeee the person who wrote this might have just been a shepard, or sheep farmer?
This is no different than if Colonol Sanders wrote the bible and said that once a year everyone HAD to eat a chicken covered in 7 herbs and spices.
“Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying: ‘On the tenth of this month every man shall take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household.”
4) WTF?! Yeah God really insists that people kill lambs. What does God have against lambs? Isn’t that just totally a coincidence that God wants people to kill something that’s tasty?
How about instead God wants everyone to eat a cob of corn? How about a turnip? God is one bloodthirsty mofo!
“And if the household is too small for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next to his house take it according to the number of the persons; according to each man’s need you shall make your count for the lamb.”
5) Does anybody ever think why God would even care?
“Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats.”
6) Do people not see that this ISN’T a commandment by God and is just some stupid scriblings of stupid people that is only believed because people are stupid and brainwashed?
So what if the person who wrote this said that God said to boil kittens in scolding hot water once a year? Would people just believe that God said that? YES! THEY WOULD! CAUSE PEOPLE ARE MORONS!
Why would the “all knowing master of the universe” give a crap about people killing innocent animals?! THINK ABOUT IT?!! DUHHH?!
“Now you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at twilight.”
7) What is this?! This is just painful to read! Why is it painful you ask? Because I’m reading this and I know that there are people who just don’t have a clue why this isn’t true and it just doesn’t even register in their brains how stupid this is!
Blood on the doorposts? WHAT?! That’s retarded! Why would God want that? Can anybody seriously give a logical explanation to this?
“And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it.”
8) Yeah cause God seriously wants that and that’s such a priority in God’s infinite life! Are people seriously mental?
Look, it’s not that I like insulting people or calling them names, but what do you want me to say? I’m reading this and my mind is just completely blown!
“Then they shall eat the flesh on that night; roasted in fire, with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.”
9) WHO CARES?! This is just crazy!
So why don’t crazy religious families who believe every word of Fox news do this? I mean they hate gays! So if they’re stupid enough to believe all the other idiotic nonsense then why in the blankity blank do they not all kill a lamb and burn it, head and all?
“Do not eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted in fire—its head with its legs and its entrails.”
10) Why would God care about this? If people don’t do this anymore, even though God is giving specific instructions to do so, then obviously they don’t believe it, or think it’s credible, so why believe any of the bible at all? There’s no proof any of it is real.
YEAH YOU HEARD ME! NO PROOF OR EVIDENCE!
“You shall let none of it remain until morning, and what remains of it until morning you shall burn with fire.”
11) So God would care about any of this WHY?! Like think about this! Why would God care about this in the slightest bit whatsoever?!
IT WOULDN’T! Why would it be so petty?! In case people haven’t realized, God either doesn’t exist, or doesn’t give a smelly turd what anyone does!
“And thus you shall eat it: with a belt on your waist, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. So you shall eat it in haste. It is the Lord’s Passover.”
12) So religies think a God that kills babies is a good thing to worship? Last I checked anyone who kills children for no other reason than for showing off, is a despicable being.
Now what is this OTHER GODS nonsense? So how come religies all claim there is only one true god when the bible is clearly saying that there are other gods? What does that even mean?
“‘For I will pass through the land of Egypt on that night, and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the Lord.”
13) Now THINK about this people. Why would God need people to do this? It doesn’t know? It’s stupid? Isn’t God supposed to be all knowing?
Not only is this whole thing retarded that it had to do any plagues in the first place, but why kill first born kids and why would GOD need people to sprinkle blood on doorknobs?
So if an Israelite had a liking to an Egyptian family and they put blood on the doorpost of that Egyptian family’s door, does that mean that the firstborn would be spared? Retarded.
“Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.”
14) So who here killed a lamb on passover recently and cooked it with it’s head still attached and legs too? Know anyone who did?
“‘So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to the Lord throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance.”
15) WTF?! Ok, this just gets dumber and dumber! This is like a game of Simon says!
I’m seriously completely mind blown here. Like why would God even care about these stupid petty things? IT WOULDN’T! Would you?
Pretend you’re God for a second. What could possibly compel you to demand people do this silly little things, OR ELSE?
I mean let’s say I was God and I even gave the slightest bit of a crap I might say “please under no circumstances eat other people”. That would kinda make sense, BUT THE BREAD?! Don’t eat fluffy bread?! I just can’t take it!
“Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall remove leaven from your houses. For whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that person shall be cut off from Israel.”
16) Argh. I just wanna swear here so bad, but I clicked “G for suitable for everyone” when I made this blog. I just keep getting angrier and angrier as I read this.
I mean seriously how can people be this mind blowingly stupid to believe any of this ridiculous unsurpassed stupidity?!
I mean there’s so many other things I’d rather be doing than this stupid journal and with my life, I read this bible and I just get angrier and angrier! I mean how can there possibly be religie scientists and intelligent people if they believe this book is true? It’s just not possible! I mean it can’t be! This is CRAZY!
“On the first day there shall be a holy convocation, and on the seventh day there shall be a holy convocation for you. No manner of work shall be done on them; but that which everyone must eat—that only may be prepared by you.”
17) Ugh. How about if I were God I’d say this instead. “Once a year you have to approach the person you hate the most in the entire world and you have to try to make peace with them somehow”? Now that would make sense. I mean there still isn’t any rational reason why I would even give the slightest bit of a you know what about what anyone did if I were God, but at least that would be admirable and respectable.
“So you shall observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread, for on this same day I will have brought your armies out of the land of Egypt. Therefore you shall observe this day throughout your generations as an everlasting ordinance.”
18) I mean I read some really stupid stuff in Genesis and seen some really stupid stuff from Ren and Stimpy, but at least Ren and Stimpy are made up and supposed to be stupid. This bible is even more stupid than Ren and Stimpy.
How could anything be dumber than this and believed by billions?
At least Ren and Stimpy are funny!
“In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at evening, you shall eat unleavened bread, until the twenty-first day of the month at evening.”
19) FOR EATING BREAD! I’m seriously yelling at this right now! How can people seriously not see that what they were raised to believe was total brainwashing and nonsense?
How about focusing on something REAL?! Not bread, or Jesus’s face appearing in a piece of toast! Like seriously, WHY WOULD GOD CARE ABOUT BREAD UNLESS IT WAS A TOTAL FART WAD?!! WTF?!
“For seven days no leaven shall be found in your houses, since whoever eats what is leavened, that same person shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he is a stranger or a native of the land.”
20) Blah, blah, blah, bread, bread, leavened, unleavened, blah, blah, blah, good bread, bad bread. Bread, bread, bread.
“You shall eat nothing leavened; in all your dwellings you shall eat unleavened bread.’”
21) One thing that’s for sure about the god of the bible. It sure loves burnt flesh and death.
“Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel and said to them, “Pick out and take lambs for yourselves according to your families, and kill the Passover lamb.”
22) Uh, why was all that necessary again God?
“And you shall take a bunch of hyssop, dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that is in the basin. And none of you shall go out of the door of his house until morning.”
23) I seriously am disgusted in humanity right now. I’m truly ashamed to live on this planet right now. Actually I’m mostly ashamed that I believed this entire bible at one time!
Why would God not know?! WTF?!
Please tell me how this isn’t completely evil? Actually please don’t bother telling me, the answers religies give me are always even stupider and the fact that any body would actually defend this will just make me angrier and more disgusted!
In fact I think I’ll just disable the comments on this blog, so I don’t have to read people actually defending this and raising my blood pressure even more. It’s so maddening to hear these responses. They just leave me in complete awe that such stupidity exists!
“For the Lord will pass through to strike the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the Lord will pass over the door and not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to strike you.”
24) Well that sure makes no sense. Surprise, surprise.
“And you shall observe this thing as an ordinance for you and your sons forever.”
25) What? Killing lambs, or blood on doorposts?
“It will come to pass when you come to the land which the Lord will give you, just as He promised, that you shall keep this service.”
26) Well it is pretty dumb, so it isn’t surprising that they would ask.
I just wish that there were more critical and free thinkers who wouldn’t accept the answer “because God said so and it says so in the bible” and would say “that makes no sense and that’s pretty stupid”.
As it is I really don’t know anyone who celebrates this by killing a lamb and roasting it’s head and spreading it’s blood on peoples doorposts so their firstborn kid dies.
“And it shall be, when your children say to you, ‘What do you mean by this service?’”
27) So we’re supposed to be celebrating a bunch of kids getting killed because people worship a drama queen psychopath. Sorry, no thanx.
“that you shall say, ‘It is the Passover sacrifice of the Lord, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when He struck the Egyptians and delivered our households.’” So the people bowed their heads and worshiped.”
28) Interesting how nobody said anything about this being wrong or anything and saying they were disgusted that God killed a whole bunch of kids.
“Then the children of Israel went away and did so; just as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did.”
29) YAAAY! God killed a bunch of kids! God’s so loving and good and smart and everything. NOT!
“And it came to pass at midnight that the Lord struck all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of livestock.”
30) That’s so nice! I still think back to reading this story in the bible when I was 8. YES I READ THIS WHEN I WAS EIGHT! I can’t remember thinking anything illogical about this then and I believed every word.
I’m sooo glad I put all this into perspective when I was 14 and came out of this ridiculous brainwashing, stupidity and nonsense! Now if only more people would do the same!
“So Pharaoh rose in the night, he, all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt, for there was not a house where there was not one dead.”
31) Well if I were Pharaoh I’d probably be a wee little bit angry that my kid got killed and might let the Israelites go but probably kill the 2 dudes I felt were responsible. I could be wrong, but that just feels to me what the normal reaction would be.
Just sayin IMO.
“Then he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, “Rise, go out from among my people, both you and the children of Israel. And go, serve the Lord as you have said.”
32) Yeah, like God’s blessing is even worth anything. Even if God existed, which it doesn’t it’s blessing is obviously worthless.
“Also take your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone; and bless me also.”
33) Huh? Why? Does it mean that the Egyptians are angry and might kill them?
“And the Egyptians urged the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste. For they said, “We shall all be dead.”
34) Bread shmead.
Who cares about the bread? Is that why hitler put over 7 million jews into gas ovens? Because of the bread they ate and didn’t kill a lamb?
“So the people took their dough before it was leavened, having their kneading bowls bound up in their clothes on their shoulders.”
35) Yeah great. Sorry about your dead kids, but give us your gold, clothes and silver. Charming.
“Now the children of Israel had done according to the word of Moses, and they had asked from the Egyptians articles of silver, articles of gold, and clothing.”
36) Douchbags. So glad that this story and every other story in the bible isn’t real in any way shape, or form.
“And the Lord had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they granted them what they requested. Thus they plundered the Egyptians.”
37) Yeah you’d think that this might have some actual documentation of this ever happening, but nope. Nada, zilch, zero. How would this not somehow be documented? Guess what though? IT WASN’T!!!!
“Then the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides children.”
38) Wouldn’t the Egyptians have simply just taken all their livestock the first time?
“A mixed multitude went up with them also, and flocks and herds—a great deal of livestock.”
39) Isn’t it fascinating how they talk more about the bread than the dead kids? Also the Israelites seem
more concerned about the bread than the dead kids.
“And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they had brought out of Egypt; for it was not leavened, because they were driven out of Egypt and could not wait, nor had they prepared provisions for themselves.”
40) 400 years since Joseph put them there in the first place. Funny how God could have simply just made things nice for the Israelites continuously, or not put them in Egypt 400 years ago if it didn’t want them there, so it didn’t have to go through all the drama of the plagues and murders.
“Now the sojourn of the children of Israel who lived in Egypt was four hundred and thirty years.”
41) Yeah this makes no sense. They did all this because they changed their minds about letting them go? How about none of this happened in the first place.
“And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years—on that very same day—it came to pass that all the armies of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt.”
42) Yeah cause their lord the psychopath is just so great and everything.
“It is a night of solemn observance to the Lord for bringing them out of the land of Egypt. This is that night of the Lord, a solemn observance for all the children of Israel throughout their generations.”
43) No foreigner? You mean like modern day christians?
“And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “This is the ordinance of the Passover: No foreigner shall eat it.”
44) Ah, slavery. Gotcha. Also, again with the circumcision. Like God would even care about how IT made people in the first place! If it didn’t want ardvark impressions, then why make them that way?
“But every man’s servant who is bought for money, when you have circumcised him, then he may eat it.”
45) So what if they do eat the lamb?
“A sojourner and a hired servant shall not eat it.”
46) Ugh, this is just getting me all riled up again. This is ridiculous! Why would God care about this? IT WOULDN’T!
“In one house it shall be eaten; you shall not carry any of the flesh outside the house, nor shall you break one of its bones.”
47) Who cares about it? Eat it, don’t eat it. Big fat harry deal, as Garfield would say. Well Garfield would of course eat it.
“All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.”
48) Please tell me how all God’s silly rules make any sense? So basically this is all this is saying. If you don’t follow God’s stupid, petty little rules then God doesn’t like you. Just because.
Oh yeah, I forgot that I disabled the comments section. Oh well.
“And when a stranger dwells with you and wants to keep the Passover to the Lord, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as a native of the land. For no uncircumcised person shall eat it.”
49) And all the laws just make sooo much sense. Please review them again.
“One law shall be for the native-born and for the stranger who dwells among you.”
50) So basically God is saying to be a bigot, treat other people to lesser standards then others and that it’s all okay.
“Thus all the children of Israel did; as the Lord commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did.”
51) Rather than doing anything logical, non-psychopathic, rational, believable, or sane, like simply make Pharaoh release them on their own, or make Egypt a happy place for them.
Either way it’s not true, is a completely made up lie and people are either brainwashed, or indoctrinated to believe this, or really stupid, or both. Sorry fellow Atheists who tell me I’m too mean, while you in the meantime enable this behavior by not telling them the truth.
“And it came to pass, on that very same day, that the Lord brought the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt according to their armies.”
YIKES! This took around 5 total hours to complete! I really gotta get started earlier, or tighten things up a bit, or maybe if a chapter is too long then just take 2 days instead of one to finish.
I guess I’ll have to split the days for each chapter when school starts up. I can’t believe how many more years I have to go of this stupid journal! Hope it’s worth it somehow! We’ll see.
If someone reads this and somehow gets snapped to their senses then it’s worth it!
Dec 15-Sun> 2013
Ok, well here we are again at the end of a part. Not a chapter, but a part. The mere thought of one day completing reading and commenting on every single verse of this holy book of evil kinda seems like a prison sentence. Oh well.
1) No God didn’t say anything to anyone. Seriously, what sort of mentality would be going through the head of such a being?
a) There is no record of anything in the Exodus ever happening.
b) The Exodus is completely and historically inaccurate having taken place (according to the bible) in 1250 BC, which fits nothing of anything to do with history, or truth.
c) This book and the 4 other books in the Pentateuch, or Torah were written 100’s of years after this was said to have been written. Many hundreds.
d) Moses didn’t write them and there is no evidence Moses even existed.
e) There is more chance that the God of the Torah was an evil space alien with free time on it’s hands than a God who would be responsible for any of it’s words, or actions.
“The Lord said to Moses,”
2) Seriously people, think of how much God would care about this. It seriously wouldn’t, WHY?! Like what would be the point of this?!
How does the god of the old testament not sound like a complete monster? Yet people insist on worshipping such a monster based on complete lies and nonsense.
“Consecrate to me all the firstborn. Whatever is the first to open the womb among the people of Israel, both of man and of beast, is mine.”
3) Seriously people. I’m begging you to put this into perspective! BREAD? A certain type of bread? Please think about this.
WHY WOULD GOD CARE ABOUT WHAT KIND OF BREAD PEOPLE ATE?!!
“Then Moses said to the people, “Remember this day in which you came out from Egypt, out of the house of slavery, for by a strong hand the Lord brought you out from this place. No leavened bread shall be eaten.”
4) YAAY! They get to walk through the desert for 40 years! Which of course never happened either.
“Today, in the month of Abib, you are going out.”
5) Well boy wasn’t God a liar then?
All it did was bring them into the land of the Idi-ites!
“And when the Lord brings you into the land of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, which he swore to your fathers to give you, a land flowing with milk and honey, you shall keep this service in this month.”
6) Bread, bread, bread. Seriously, how does this little fact regarding the bread not make people see this bible and everything in it is total nonsense and stupidity?!
“Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, and on the seventh day there shall be a feast to the Lord.”
7) So let’s get this straight? God cares more about bread then it does about lambs goats and innocent first born children?
a) Pathetic and despicable that someone believes such an entity exists.
b) Pathetic and despicable that people actually worship such a being they believe exists.
c) Pathetic and despicable that someone would write such a stupid and retarded thing about bread in this bible and not be completely ignored.
“Unleavened bread shall be eaten for seven days; no leavened bread shall be seen with you, and no leaven shall be seen with you in all your territory.”
8) If you were a kid how would wandering through the desert for 40 years be a good thing?
Also, isn’t it a bit sexist to say “he asks”? Guess girls and woman weren’t important enough to even give an answer to.
“You shall tell your son on that day, ‘It is because of what the Lord did for me when I came out of Egypt.’”
9) I would think about what a scumbag God is with every bite of the bread.
“And it shall be to you as a sign on your hand and as a memorial between your eyes, that the law of the Lord may be in your mouth. For with a strong hand the Lord has brought you out of Egypt.”
10) How is this important celebrating that several children were killed for no reason other than God wanted to show off and God caused unbelievable drama and suffering while it sat comfortably cozy watching the universe?
“You shall therefore keep this statute at its appointed time from year to year.”
11) Why not just magically do it then? Why the big drama and waiting? Oh wait, I keep forgetting that this never happened.
“When the Lord brings you into the land of the Canaanites, as he swore to you and your fathers, and shall give it to you,”
12) Again, why?! Why?! Why?! Why?! Why?! Begging you religies reading this to just ask yourself that question. I mean how hard is it to actually think about this?
Why would God need these animals? Does it eat? Why would it care? Why don’t people do this anymore?
Could it actually be that maybe the bible and all the contents in it are just made up nonsense and brainwashing without an ounce of truth and you only believe it because you have been mislead?
There isn’t a shred of truth to say otherwise!
“you shall set apart to the Lord all that first opens the womb. All the firstborn of your animals that are males shall be the Lord’s.”
13) WHAT?! How can a thinking person actually believe that God said this?! This is CRAZY?! Yet BILLIONS have and BILLIONS still do.
God wants firstborn animals killed to celebrate it killing firstborn humans? God wants you to break something’s neck? I just can’t take it! The stupid, it burns, IT BURNS!!!
“Every firstborn of a donkey you shall redeem with a lamb, or if you will not redeem it you shall break its neck. Every firstborn of man among your sons you shall redeem.”
14) At this point a rational and intelligent child realizes that their parents are not only insane, but stupid.
“And when in time to come your son asks you, ‘What does this mean?’ you shall say to him, ‘By a strong hand the Lord brought us out of Egypt, from the house of slavery.”
15) So God is such a petty narcissist egomaniac that it needs people to marvel at it’s dirty work? Really? How can people not look at this as anything more than pathetic, retarded, illogical and evil.
I just don’t get it! I mean, in case people don’t understand why I have this problem with religion, it’s because these religions have desensitized people to these ridiculous and evil things, while robbing people of their intelligence.
I’m doing you a favor here! You should be thanking me for trying to stop you from making such total fools of yourselves! I mean if you only knew how brainwashed and retarded you are thinking and acting it would truly drop you to your knees!
“For when Pharaoh stubbornly refused to let us go, the Lord killed all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man and the firstborn of animals. Therefore I sacrifice to the Lord all the males that first open the womb, but all the firstborn of my sons I redeem.’”
16) Told to people from people they respected and trusted who brainwashed them, from people they respected and trusted who brainwashed them, from people who they trusted who brainwashed them and so on and so on. Like a virus, or cancer!
“It shall be as a mark on your hand or frontlets between your eyes, for by a strong hand the Lord brought us out of Egypt.”
17) So all this death, misery and uneccessary drama and God doesn’t even have a plan? It then wants the Israelites to start thinking for themselves to see what they want?
Ok, well how about just asking them what they thought would be a good idea before God did all that? How about like just simply making Pharaoh be nicer, or just make him let the Israelites go without all the drama?
“When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near. For God said, “Lest the people change their minds when they see war and return to Egypt.”
18) Oh okay sure, so they were equipped for battle. Pharaoh lets 600,000 slaves go into the desert and Pharaoh gives them weapons too. Brilliant.
Why would slaves be given even one single weapon, or be allowed to take them? Do religies not think about these things? Are they not capable of putting together these thoughts? Are they afraid God will convict them of “thought crime” maybe?
Well if God couldn’t telepathically control, or communicate with Pharaoh, then I seriously doubt that it can read anyones thoughts and be mad at them for doubting it!
“But God led the people around by the way of the wilderness toward the Red Sea. And the people of Israel went up out of the land of Egypt equipped for battle.”
19) Oh whatever.
Yeah dig up 400 year old bones of Joseph. Wouldn’t Joseph be buried with Jacob in the cave in the field of Machpelah in Genesis 50? Why would they move him from there?
If Joseph was living in Egypt and was important then wouldn’t he be in a sarcophagus, or mummified? Wouldn’t they mention he was mummified?
“Moses took the bones of Joseph with him, for Joseph had made the sons of Israel solemnly swear, saying, “God will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones with you from here.”
20) Blah blah blah.
“And they moved on from Succoth and encamped at Etham, on the edge of the wilderness.”
21) Gee that sure is nice of God to do. Too bad about all the torture, rape, murder, famine, death, blindness,deformities, disease, catastrophies and war that goes on every day that God does nothing about.
“And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them along the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night.”
22) Again, it’s too bad about 7 million jews dying in gas ovens, or were starved executed and tortured in WW2.
Which shows how God either doesn’t care, or it enjoys the misery, or it doesn’t exist.
God doesn’t exist by the way.
“The pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night did not depart from before the people.”
Okay well this is the last entry in this part. On to Part 2 of The Exodus Buy-bull. Though I’m alternating postings of The Matthew Buy-bull.
Some ending words for this chapter:
– Is it right to call religious people crazy and stupid because they believe this idiocy of the bible and what their religions involve?
} Probably not.
– Am I a bad person for calling them these names?
– Should I really be doing this journal if it just angers me and makes me probably sound a bit nuts?
} I don’t know. Maybe not.
– If I continue to do this journal should I not be as insulting and not tell the world how disgusted and angry of how I feel?
} Then I really wouldn’t have anything to say.
– What do I have to say to these Atheists who seem to have taken religious debating up like it’s a sport and are all buddy buddies with religies, like they are an opposite teams of a sport and tell me I am too mean?
} This isn’t a game and unless you push these believers into facing the truth, forcing them into answering questions behind why they believe their religion, or god, or how they aren’t brainwashed, then all you’re doing is encouraging their insanity!
– Do I think that calling someone brainwashed is an insult?
} No. Being brainwashed to religion and belief in gods is a “condition” and I am merely saying they are victims, nothing else.
If there isn’t another way of saying “brainwashed” that they don’t feel insulted by well that isn’t my fault!
– Do I think it’s helpful to call religious people stupid, or insane?
} If nobody pushes them to step back and think, or answer questions, then how can they not ever doubt, or question their beliefs? If nobody pushes them to do research for themselves to see that they have been deceived and lied to, then they will continue to destroy the world. If they aren’t crazy and stupid then PROVE IT!
SO YES IT’S VERY HELPFUL!
This way of thinking and behaviour religious people have must not be encouraged, or accepted as “normal”, but delusional, stupidity and insanity and nothing else. Say it as nice as possible, but say it! If you don’t say it, then maybe someday nobody will.
They might even thank you for it later.
