Nice to see this is still going. And that everyone is getting along!!!

I have a question for the Christians. Why didn't God reveal himself to a literate civilization? The people he revealed himself to were bronze age men who didn't know where the sun went at night. People in China had been literate for many years, why not go there?

Anyway, no need to answer me. I ask just so the Christians will think...well, OK...

The Bible, in any form, is fiction.

....are you aware of Hiccum's Dictum?
Hickam's dictum is a counterargument to the use of Occam's razor in the medical profession.[1] The principle is commonly stated: "Patients can have as many diseases as they damn well please". The principle is attributed to John Hickam, MD. Hickam was a faculty member at Duke University in the 1950s, and was later chairman of medicine at Indiana University.[2]
When discussing Occam's razor in contemporary medicine, doctors and philosophers of medicine speak of diagnostic parsimony. Diagnostic parsimony advocates that when diagnosing a given injury, ailment, illness, or disease a doctor should strive to look for the fewest possible causes that will account for all the symptoms. However, this principle has very important limits in medical practice. The actual process that occurs when diagnosing a patient is a continuous flow of hypothesis and testing of that hypothesis, then modifying the hypothesis, and so on. In the context of this method, the principle of Hickam's dictum asserts that at no stage should a particular diagnosis be excluded solely because it doesn't appear to fit the principle of Occam's razor. The principle of Occam's razor, or parsimony, does not demand that the diagnostician necessarily opt for the simplest explanation, but instead guides the medical practitioner to seek explanations, without unnecessary additional assumptions, which are capable of accounting for all relevant evidence.
What does this have to do with anything on this post?

I hate to break the bad news to the christians in the thousands of different theologies concerning biblical beliefs. The bible shows it condemns almost all conflicting doctrines being taught today.

Your upset with athiests, yet God has condemned most of the teachings and so which ones? You may be joining athiests and others in the symbolic lake of fire.

Galatians 1:8
But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!

Prov 16:25
There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.

That is a lie. God "GAVE" up nothing, if you believe in the whole book, then he simply took his son home to be with HIM, in which case christians were supposed to be joyful. No one who looses a son is joyful.

My name is not Rove or Walton - and of course, they aren't planning on doing any of that blue collar suffering thing.

God's a family kind of guy? According to you and the Bible, he owns everything and wants you soul, too. If you don't suck up to him with praises and do his every bidding like a good little sycophant toady yes-man he'll make your life miserable and then toss you into a burning pit of agony forever.
