Skeptic's Annotated Bible

  1. Why are you going down this road yet again? I don't understand why you have such a problem with god. You are worse than the hardcore fundies with atheism rhetoric. Take a hike!!!!
  2. I like this too, as they've obviously put in alot of work in pointing out the contradictions & absurdities of the Bible.

    However, there is some sloppiness/ blatant misleading on this website.

    Just an example I found pretty quickly in their 'contradictions' section:

    Is it OK to drink alcohol?

    No: Num.6:3
    "He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink, and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or dried."

    Without even needing to reference the context, I knew that this was written to solely apply to men who voluntarily take the vow of the Nazarite (similar to a monk). The website clearly takes the passage out of context, as if this would apply to everyone.
