Bible stuff.

It astonishes me that Christians can argue seriously amongst themselves about what passages of the Bible mean, using expressions like "the guidance of the Holy Spirit", "we cannot fully understand God", "it's meant to be taken literally/metaphorically", "only those in the Spirit can understand", "you are not a true Christian", etc., to cover the fact that the Bible is nothing more than a collection of stories written by men putting their ideas of 'God' and his wishes into writing.

Christians have been studying the writings and arguing about them for 2000 years, and still there is no consensus on their 'meaning', yet they obstinately refuse to accept them for what they are.

There's nowt so queer as folk!

What happens when atheists stop telling the truth about religion:

Many christians seem to have never read the bible and certainly don't have a clue as to it's history. If the bible was remotely true, there would not be thousands of versions of christianity, all based on it, and there would not be hundreds of millions of ex-christians.

It is to be regretted that many people are unable to cope with life without the opiate of the masses. :(

Could you please translate this for me?! Thank you.

It was interesting to hear Andrew Motion and a Prof of English this morning deploring the lack of general knowledge so many students these days demonstrate  of the Bible and classical myths etc.

I see there is a video a few posts down. I'll click on it ......ah, no, I see it is a picture, so I still need a translaton please!

LD - Thank you, but unfortunately, no! My screen reader will not read the page.

Ok I'll quote what it says instead:

Quote:
"I Did It For The Lulz" (IDIFTL) is a catchphrase which serves as a catch-all explanation for any trolling you do or any internet drama you cause.

If you are experiencing troll's remorse, saying "I did it for the lulz" three times out loud should clear your conscience, therefore cleansing your soul in all circumstances... no matter for all those dead Sudanese.

Encyclopedia Dramatica is proof that doing something for the lulz is the only reason to do anything. IDIFTL is also the greatest legal defense that has ever been used, second only to the bullshit claim of insanity."


1.  lulz  - Beginning as a plural variant of lol, Lulz was originally an exclamation but is now often used as a noun meaning interesting or funny internet content.
Lol -> lul; lols -> luls; lolz -> lulz.

Lulz is the one good reason to do anything, after every action taken, you must make the epilogic dubious disclaimer: "I did it for the lulz".

Thank you LD. I think I understand it now...but think I will probably not try to use it myself, as I'm sure to mis-apply it!!

Back to Bible stuff...

I was just ambling through the web and found this.

"Who has conquered the Middle East over the course of world events":

I found it quite interesting.

That was brilliant - thanks LD - really really interesting.

Some bits I knew about - but I didn't know how far things extended.

I took a look - but gave up when I realised that it misses out parts of Europe entirely.
