Not necessarily. Some parts of the bible are hyperbole, but not all. And the portions that are hyperbole aren't for the purpose of deception or story telling around a camp fire when there's nothing better to do. Hyperbole isn't like that. At least not in ancient Hebrew culture.
Ancient Hebrew culture is like any other. They have a cultural mythology/history that fluctuated or peaked at times in belief, and waned as time passed and other encountered cultures mythologies were adopted and assimilated, becoming their own after a time.

That is the pattern of history. That template rarely varies.

<quoted text>> Osama sees you believe anything that is thrown out into public view by any brainless twit who doesn't believe in God. Go figure!!! So, tell all of Topix ... were you present when Moses received the Ten Commandments? No??? Oh, you were on a neighboring mountain listening to the neighborhood mystic. Did you learn anything that would help you to live a good life? What's that you say ... "I learned from the mystic that there wasn't a God"! No, Osama said, "Did you learn anything that would help you live a good life?" Osama doesn't want to know if you lost your marbles. Enough of your fruitless ramblings ... where's the beef?
Tell us something that's true, and will be helpful to you and your pack of lost and lonely, wandering in the wilderness heathens. Think back ... Osama knows it was a loooooooooong time ago, but, you need to come up with something constructive, and truthful. Maybe check with one of your all-knowing scientists, who could help you find one of your truths. Osama knows it's circling one of the Super Massive Black Holes of the Milky Way Galaxy right now. Hurry up and find it before it is swallowed up forever, and ever! Scaritual, pulls his communicator from his pocket, and in a somewhat frightened tone says, "Beam me up, Scotty"!

Osama sees the lobotomy really took it out of you, huh, CrackedLibertyBell? Too bad! Hey, how's the titanium bolt the surgeon put in your neck to keep your empty head from falling off and bouncing on the floor like a basketball? Hope it helps you eventually become level headed! Okay, okay, all joking aside, Osama, wishes you all the best, even though he knows you want be able to hold a knowledgeable conversation with the real intellects of the universe ... yep, the believers of God Almighty. Osama did see in a medical journal, that people who had a lobotomy had a 50/50 chance of being able to walk and chew gum ... albeit, not at the same time. Hope you're not a gum chewer! Now, run... oops, I mean, walk along and try your best to get your IQ back up to 10.

Yours truly,
Dr. Osama (Helping the brain dead to lead as normal a life as humanly possible ... yes, atheists, there are miracles)

P.S.- Don't be trying to unscrew that titanium neck bolt ... ya hear!?

A change of perspective.

TOPIX ATHEISTS!!! DO NOT READ!!!
Thanks Dave that was good reading.

Here something else TOPIX ATHEISTS!!! DO NOT READ!!!

Last words of famous atheists:

Caesar Borgia: "While I lived, I provided for everything but death; now I must die, and am unprepared to die."

Thomas Hobbs political philosopher "I say again, if I had the whole world at my disposal, I would give it to live one day. I am about to take a leap into the dark."

Thomas Payne the leading atheistic writer in American colonies: "Stay with me, for God's sake; I cannot bear to be left alone , O Lord, help me! O God, what have I done to suffer so much? What will become of me hereafter? "I would give worlds if I had them, that The Age of Reason had never been published. 0 Lord, help me! Christ, help me!…No, don't leave; stay with me! Send even a child to stay with me; for I am on the edge of Hell here alone. If ever the Devil had an agent, I have been that one."

Sir Thomas Scott, Chancellor of England "Until this moment I thought there was neither a God nor a hell. Now I know and feel that there are both, and I am doomed to perdition by the just judgment of the Almighty."

David Hume, atheist philosopher famous for his philosophy of empiricism and skepticism of religion, he cried loud on his death bed "I am in flames!" It is said his "desperation was a horrible scene".

Napoleon Bonaparte, the French emperor, and who, like Adolf Hitler, brought death to millions to satisfy his greedy, power-mad, selfish ambitions for world conquest: "I die before my time, and my body will be given back to the earth. Such is the fate of him who has been called the great Napoleon. What an abyss between my deep misery and the eternal kingdom of Christ!”

Sir Francis Newport, the head of an English Atheist club to those gathered around his deathbed: "You need not tell me there is no God for I know there is one, and that I am in His presence! You need not tell me there is no hell. I feel myself already slipping. Wretches, cease your idle talk about there being hope for me! I know I am lost forever! Oh, that fire! Oh, the insufferable pangs of hell!…Oh, that I could lie for a thousand years upon the fire that is never quenched, to purchase the favor of God and be united to Him again. But it is a fruitless wish. Millions and millions of years will bring me no nearer the end of my torments than one poor hour. Oh, eternity, eternity forever and forever!, Oh, the insufferable pangs of Hell!”

"Strawberry" Pinson, a good Christian man, right before he died:

"I'ma sayin air's at least 3 coons upinat tree, somebody me uh shotgun!"

Then he took a big breath and died.

If you are arguing for and prosyletizing it, then it is a religion.

There is no other reason for your passion about it.
