RE: An atheist's critique of the Bible (Book and eBook now available)
Here is something I have been hearing lately from religious people who are now realizing that the bible is filled with tales that go from ridiculous to plain absurd.

"The Bible is but a metaphor"

In a desperate attempt to explain the violence,the absurdities, all the contradictions, some religious people have embraced the silly notion that the bible stories are a metaphor.

Wow... From reading the few bits on this forum about the bible I discovered things I never knew about before, and no, I haven't dug myself through the 33 pages of this thread yet. Wink I've never seen so much shit in one place, eh... book. Apart from that I actually never really read that bible even when I was "believing", I had fairly enough of it during class and it bored the shit out of me. My book of morals were the Fairy tales from Hans Christian Andersen, and my fav up to this day are "The ugly duckling" and my all time fav ever, "Tiny".

I have a small request for the fine folks of TTA. I just read about a guy who sold a million eBooks by paying 300 people to give 5 star ratings and my book is doing well so far with just 1 rating. Could those of you with an Amazon account, some free time, and a desire to make bad life decisions head on over to the amazon site and give me some stars?

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?u...rian+shuty

Those of you who already did will find that your review has been deleted because I had to submit a new file for all the corrections I made and it wipes the slate clean.


The reviews don't even have to make sense.

A few suggestions:

"This book tastes great when baked at 450 degrees for 20 minutes. Slather on some BBQ sauce and serve over rice for best results."

"I just bought this book yesterday and I'm loving it. It props up the wobbly table in my kitchen perfectly!"

"I gave this book to a blind deaf-mute kid for Christmas. So far, I've heard no complaints!"


As far as paying you... anyone who rates get a Rep point from me (assuming I haven't already repped you). Just PM me your amazon name so I know it's you. Thanks, you ragtag tribe of gypsy renegades.

LoL. I was going to go review it, and then it turns out it's my review. I'll go ahead and review the New Testament one as well, although I haven't read it yet. Tongue

Done and done. I didn't say the Rep would make sense.

And since I don't like to beg for something without giving back, I'll start a few forum threads as soon as the weed wears off.

I tried to make my New Testament review more humourous, and less serious. When it goes live, I hope your socks are blown clean off.

I've reviewed all three. Thinking back though my review for the physical book may get rejected cos I think I forgot I was no longer on TTA and might have titled it 'Fucking Brilliant'. Not exactly the cleverest thing I've ever done.

The other two should be fine though. If the third one gets rejected I'll have another go at it, and try not to swear this time. Big Grin

Yep, Amazon have already emailed me effectively telling me I have a dirty mouth. Let's hope attempt number two makes it through the screening process. Big Grin

Are you J Tucker? Socks are gone. You play a very convincing "I'm in my own imaginary world" character who is disappointed with zombie fiction.
