Isn't the bible poorly written?
After reading the bible, I can only say I'm left confused as it's all down to interpretation.

I struggle with finding out whether something is this or that since it some pages after says the opposite thing.

How can someone who studies it for years and gets a phd in this and claim to understand more of the bible than a normal guy who just read it once when it's impossible to comprehend it.

I give the bible 1/10, it's almost as good as twilight.

I think it only impossible/hard to comprehend when one think about it as word of merciful god, filled with some kind of heavenly wisdom. Otherwise it's just book written with particular audience in mind, edited and changed with part's that don't fit with each other.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Oh please.

We all know the Bibal is worse than Twilight, at least when it comes to structure. I mean, I haven't read it, but I don't think Twilight presented two different openings one after another.

Well it is not one book, such as The Iliad. The bible is a bunch of writings thrown together seemingly at random. Then later edited to the point where entire books were added and thrown away. It's a mess.

Even reading individual books is difficult and at several times mindbogglingly boring, to read Leviticus takes some serious willpower. I'd bet twilight is a better written book compared to each bible book individually.

I read the bible, kind of, a few years back. And yes it was the most tedious book I have ever picked up. I skipped a fair bit of it either due to endless people begetting other people or the sheer level of violence and genocide. But I did find some comedy gold in there also. Like the guy who lies in shit for 40 odd days or so. I had Monty Python style sketches playing out in my head many times. In fact that was the only thing that kept me going.

I don't know. I tried to read it cover to cover but found it so excruciatingly boring I couldn't even get through the first chapter.

If you think lying in shit for 40 days was comedy gold you should read the part about where a guy is commanded by God to bake all his food using human shit for the fire for over a year its in Ezekiel chapter 4 verses 9-12

It's one gigantic political cut and paste job.

That must have been a part I skipped. What's the deal with Yaweh and shit? He is one weird, sick SoB.
