It would have to be self-published.

No one would take a risk on such obvious bullshit.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

Definitely had to say that too... unless some pompous public figure like Bill O'Reilly claims to have been a ghost writer of it.

If someone writes even a modestly compelling, admitted work of pure fiction, people will either flock to it as truth, or condemn it.
Look at how bent-up folks got over The DaVinci Code.
The lengths people will go to over irrational beliefs is apparently unlimited.

I can't imagine any publisher would agree to print the bible if it were a new book since it's boring, poorly written, badly formatted and contradicts itself all the time.

RE: What if the bible came out today for the first time?
If the bible came out for the first time today, we would be arguing with Islamics, not Christians. Every day, 4 times a day or whatever, tones would be rung over every single land in every church everywhere in almost every single country so people can bend down and pray on carpets.

Basically, everything that makes up human culture, history, ethics, morality etc. Would be replaced by Islam instead of Christianity.

The bible would just be the new Scientology. Except for the fact that Islam is much less tolerant, so no new religions would had been tolerated and atheists and secular people would be persecuted on levels far greater than anything today.

We would probably all be dead right now.

Well I'll have to shelve it as fiction, obviously.
If there's any argument it can be moved up to 398.24 next to other favorites as Anansi the spider, Aesop's Fables or Red Ridding Hood.

I did too - Weeping

But I didn't make it through the whole book.

If it came out today it would be rated X for all the raping, hacking up body parts, killing babies, hangings, stonings, brother killing brother ( fratricide), father killing daughters, fathers killing sons, sons killing fathers, fathers impregnating daughters, drownings, polygamy, biological warfare, burnings, decapitation, purposeful starvation and infestations, and general rules and regulations that are senseless and misogynistic.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

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.
