Maybe I'm new but this is the first I'm hearing of this massive project.
Every red line represents a contradiction in the Bible.

Here is the PDF so you can zoom in (takes a while to load if you're on a dinosaur computer like me) : http://www.project-reason.org/bibleContra_big.pdf



Here's a poster you can apparently download: http://www.project-reason.org/gallery3/image/105/



I'm kind of overwhelmed by all the red lines. I was raised Christian and I think if I saw this during my days of devote practice I think I'd be upset by it. Are you?

I think you can find a lot of supposed contradictions if you take them out of context. it would definitely be interesting to look at that more in depth though.

I know it's a Christmas movie, but this quote fits here...



"Faith is believing in something, when common sense tells you not to".

You know, I get the whole "believe without seeing" thing. I believe in aliens, I believe in ghosts, I believe in demons... but I struggle with believing in the Christian God.

My uncle believed he could drive drunk and be safe, even though common sense said otherwise. That didn't turn out so well.

Quoting Rumpelstiltskin:" Problem with the Bible is it was written so long ago, by lots of different people in lots of different ... [snip!] ... anyone's body and possess them so he could write out what he wanted to say. Think of it as paraphrase upon paraphrase. :D "


except that if you compare the earliest copies of the Bible with recent ones, they are amazingly accurate.
