As an atheist, I have to chuckle…

You gotta admit, it takes some balls.

We’ve got a country full of gun-toting, gay-hating, Bible-thumping, war-starting Christia… er, hypocrites and these people have come out with a movie filled with evidence disputing that their almighty Savior (you know, the one who preached the tolerance and love they so conveniently ignore) never even existed. Sure, The God Who Wasn’t There is filled with old evidence, long substantiated evidence, stuff I’ve known about for year, not too much new, shiny, cool shit, but it takes some balls to release a movie like that in a country filled with people who hate anyone who doesn’t love their big, spooky, imaginary old man in the sky (or young man impaled on wood, if you prefer the gayer interpretation). Yeah, you'll love the trailer!

As for me, I’d have no problem with Christians if they’d just be Christian, if they’d just follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, but that would require them to love their enemies, turn the other cheek, provide for those less well-off than themselves, and…. oh right, FORGIVE.

That ain’t happening.

Don't you think hypocrisy is built into the bible? That "turn the other cheek" thing doesn't gibe with the many times god orders his people to kill, kill, kill.

You might enjoy looking at my blog. I think you'll get some laughs.

Of course, the Bible is fallible as a work written by man. I don't believe, however, that the underlying message is less valid.

Please don't ask me to defend the Bible... it hurts...
