Au contraire. Your bible is riddled with error and contradiction.

What moral principles are original to Christianity? "Thou shalt not steal"? You stole that from the Jews.
Incidentally, whenever Christians pick and choose which commandments of their bible to accept and which to reject, they are applying an external standard to your so-called absolute biblical morality to do it.
"You stole that from the Jews."
No need showing off your stupidity any further. Jesus was a Rabbi the Christian faith was Jewish the split came years after Jesus. However the OT was always part of Christianity and the Jewish faiths. Nothing stolen.
Silly games the atheist play.
Why under this rule then the same holds true to science. Nothing but words and numbers in all their theory's.
