The talking snake is an allegory, it was not a literal talking snake. That's silly.

Not as silly as you asserting that a dead Jebus will be coming back, and somehow you "know" that. Laugh out load

The story of jeebus depends on that talking snake NOT being an allegory. It requires a literal Adam and Eve to take a bite of an actual fruit to commit the "original sin". Without original sin, Jeebus becomes unnecessary and just a story. Drinking Beverage

You go right on ahead and argue that YOUR version of fiction is somehow more valid than shitshow's version of fiction. Drinking Beverage

This thread has never failed to be on the page when I update to look at recent posts. Here we are at page 121.

Yes. The answer is yes. God actually a bad guy.


Jesus fucking Christ.

I have a question regarding the Allegory Defence and now seems as good a time as any...
Why would any author of any book attempting to convey important information lace the text with obscure allegory without clearly marking it as such used for the purpose of conceptual demonstration?

While my library of books is not extensive, I admit, I can recollect never once seeing a book of fact with interwoven falsehood in such a manner as the world's holy texts are so often supposed to be.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

If the Talking Snake™ can be an allegory, then the Jesus story arc can also be an allegory. The idea of someone coming back from the dead after several days in a tomb, then disappearing into the sky, then coming back 2 millennia later, is even sillier.

I'm sorry, but your beliefs are much too silly to take seriously. Got anything else we can discuss?

RE: Sorry for the last post wrong word but to ask is God actually a bad guy.
I haven't read this thread in a while so I thought I'd catch up and see what's going on. I see we have a couple of Big Gulp Kool Aid drinkers.

Ok, carry on.

Guess I'll check back in another couple of months. Maybe things will have improved by then.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Jesus won't be coming back, it shall be the spirit of Christ that makes a return. The world will be a very different place by the time that happens.
