I now lend my voice to your rant.

You're right about the short-circuit in logic that occurs in the True Believer that turns to rationalization. No matter how much bashing occurs, that's not what is going to turn a True Believer to the Dark Side.

I don't have examples before I've had my morning coffee, but much of the bashing would not affect a True Believer because the Atheist's critique of the Bible only addresses surface issues that the True Believer doesn't believe in any way. Oh, I do have a case in point (Only took half a cup): Ridiculing God for resting on the 7th Day. Oh, poor God got all tired and sleepy from creating the universe. This is a ridiculous critique in the eyes of a True Believer. No one believes God took a nap. His rest meant that he was done. And threads pointing out what ISN'T in the Bible is also seen as quaint to the True Believer. Fundies and Evangelicals read their Bibles (at least the ones I was around). They know the saying, "God helps those who helps themselves" is not in the Bible. They know angels don't look like Renaissance paintings. Anyway, if I can recant my relationship with Jesus after 40ish years, I can certainly recant my comments that I disagreed with your rant about Bible Bashing. Smile
Thanks. It's something I've repeatedly witnessed conversing with believers.

And we're not the Dark Side, though that is always amusing. We are the side with the light of curiosity and rationality, not the darkness of willful ignorance.

Yes, but it needs better nomenclature. I believe the Church Fathers would have used the term, "Post Natal Eucharist."

Or maybe it's supercircumcision.

I propose a minor change to suppercircumcision. Because babies aren't just for breakfast anymore. Smile

Geez, would you two keep it down? I'm trying to eat a baby here!

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.
