Is the Bible really God’s Word?

June 1st, 2012

By Robert Singer
BibleThe Bible is the most widely read book in history. The Book is either biblical disinformation, or the words of a jealous, sadistic, omniscient deity. Regardless of what you believe about the book, it needs to be studied because the Bible shaped the dispositions and beliefs of most of humanity. [1]

All or part of the Bible has been translated into more than 1,200 languages, and every year more copies of the Bible are sold than any other single book.

Whoever wrote the Bible understood "the science of historical motivation," (i.e., psychohistory – the study of psychology and history) and the principle of methodological individualism (Broadbeck; Danto; Mandelbaum).

Methodological individualism is the theory that "the ultimate constituents of the social world are individual people. Every complex situation, institution, or event is the result of a particular configuration and the interactions of groups - nations, political parties, gangs or tribes of individuals, their dispositions and beliefs, and physical resources and environments" (Danto, 267).

One does not have to be a scholar nor historian to realize the Bible cannot be the words of a benevolent, loving Judeo-Christian [monotheistic] God.

If you were God, would you admit to writing a book so full of sadism, contradictions and unmitigated nonsense?

An omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient higher power wouldn’t write a book that resulted in mass confusion. Today there are 330,000 churches and 38,000 denominations in the U.S. alone, arguing about what was lost in the English translation of the Bible. [2]

Christians, especially the Evangelicals, believe the Bible is prophetic. God’s prophets allegedly are accurate 100 percent of the time when they claim specific events foretell the future, sometimes centuries, before they occur. However, the 2,000 prophecies that allegedly have been fulfilled to the letter without any errors cannot be verified, and that is before a discussion of how carbon dating cannot prove when the Bible was actually written.

The “other” God

While I am positive God didn’t write the book, Satan, God’s adversary, might just be the one behind the disinformation in the Bible. [Appendix A]

Believers will admit that Satan rules the world through deception and sin [Rev 12:9], but suggesting that Satan wrote the Bible as an ingenious way to deceive the masses gives Christians a case of religious Cognitive Dissonance (CD). CD is the discomfort felt at the discrepancy between what you believe is true and new information or interpretation that contradicts the foundation of Christian religion. Christians aren’t ready to admit they were “had” or “conned” into believing God wrote the book when in fact it is more likely that it was written by Satan.

The fear inspired by Satan's Big Lie (about going to Hell if you don't believe) would cause good people to actually defend Satan's own writings! They would start a huge intellectual effort called "Christian apologetics," devoted to explaining why, in spite of the glaring errors, contradictions and immorality in Satan's Bible, it was actually all true, and was in fact the word of Satan's arch-rival, God. This would be Satan's ultimate achievement, that the humans that God created would actually turn against God and defend Satan's Bible! [Excerpt from Was the Bible Written by Satan? by Craig A. James]

Satan is fast and supernatural

Satan isn’t omnipresent, omnipotent or omniscient, but the Bible says he is so fast that he often appears to be in more than one place at the same time. Satan uses his supernatural mind and knowledge of mankind to predict human behavior in order to manifest a satanic plan.

Yes, the Bible says he won’t succeed, and he, the beast and the false prophet, are going into the lake of burning sulfur to be tormented day and night — forever. What else would he write to keep the ignorant masses [useless eaters] from ever finding out his diabolical plan?

Pretend for a moment you are living in the first century and are working for Satan. Satan believes Mother-Earth (Gaea) is sentient and wants to hurt her. Your job is to find a way to get humans to weaken Gaea with environmental damage and pollution.

Santorum Hearing Voices

February 27th, 2012

By Michael Collins
Satire


(Washington, DC) Senator Rick Santorum knows something many of us do not. Satan is waging war on the United States. This is no scruffy terrorist group carrying explosives in their underwear or shoes. It is Satan himself, also known as the Devil, Mephistopheles, the Beast, etc. (Image one, two)

How does the senator know so much about this attack?

Santorum hears voices.

Four years ago, he admitted just that:

"Satan is attacking the great institutions of America, using those voices of pride, vanity, and sensuality as the root to attack all of the strong plants that has (sic) deeply rooted in the American tradition," Senator Rick Santorum from The Daily Beast

That's a very strong statement. Some wonder if the senator is barking-at-the-moon mad. Santorum is undeterred. Campaigning in Arizona, he asserted his right to speak out about "good and evil." He referenced former President Ronald Reagan as one political leader who shared this view. Santorum also shares Reagan's strongly held conviction that trees cause pollution.
