Amusing you think reading is a substitute for thinking. Then you pass judgment on those who don't read the same thing.
Amusing that you would rather argue with straw men than a real person. You just stay in your nice warm comfort zone, Dave.
Give us some of your original thinking, Oscar. Just a few paragraphs. Not the passing judgment stuff, but how you see things work personally on a physical or spiritual level.
I will bet you can't. It will be nothing but regurgitation of what you have read.
You will totally ignore and dodge that challenge.
"but how you see things work personally on a physical or spiritual level"? Can you be a little more specific when you throw down a challenge?

Thanks.

You cannot truthfully deny that multitudes of curious occurrences are readily observable in the Bible.

To a Xtian believer, these strange events are nothing more than the mysterious ways of God.

To a freethinker, the alleged phenomena are an indicative subset of the widespread superstitious beliefs held by our ancestors.

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of ridiculous statements made by the authors of the Bible.

Whether you enjoy reading about plumb lines or talking donkeys, the Xtian religion carries more than its fair share of absurdities.

In fact, some of the biblical reports are illogical enough to disqualify explanations through supernatural means.

There are jelly fish fossils from this Cambrian extinction. A pretty major event would be needed to make fossil all over the world of the same time period. We call it Noah's flood.

Where are all the people fossils from then...genius? Or even animals we recognize as living 6000 ya, epic fail and making your self look pretty shabby in the brains department.

Um, I'm not actually Oscar Wilde. That's just an avatar.

But as for my own original thoughts, here is one: I really like Sea Veggies seaweed snacks.

How was that?

Atheism requires no faith at all but i wish i had Jean-Paul sartre's attitude to religion, a man so thoroughly atheist he deemed the whole subject beneath his intelligence to consider. Simply religion is divisive and restricts us as a species, simple as that.
BOOK OFFER - There's a book causing a buzz in the UK called '2082: The Chronicles Of Hope'. It's featured in the USA today on Amazon Kindle Daily Deal for one day at $0.99. I'm not anything to do with the book but believe it could have such a positive influence if the word is spread, as it features an atheist revolutionary, humanitarian working-class genius politician very much in the George Carlin mould. He's got an integrity and strong desire to build a better world, rather than merely a capitalist puppet for the corporations who really run things. I highly recommend
George Carlin was a genius? Wow, he must have been great at keeping a secret.

Do you believe every fossil has been found?

Do you believe everything that lived turns into a fossil?

Fact is most people would be hanging on to trees and other floating item until they died they would have then bloated and floated and would then have been eaten. They would not have been buried alive in mud slides in the numbers like that of sea creatures.

That's still millions of years before humans existed, still making your myth a failure. Of course ignoring the fact that you twisted the facts to support your ignorant assertion here. Not to mention, there were no rabbits, birds, or mammals.

The term "Nibiru" comes from the Sumerian cuneiform stone tablets and writings that are 6,000 years old. The term Nibiru means "Planet of the crossing". The Sumerian culture is the first recorded civilization on earth, then called Sumerian, today's Iraq. It has been known throughout ensuing time periods as Sumer, Mesopotamia, and Babylon, all the same location for where earth's first culture shows up on earth. The Sumerian Culture is the oldest known civilization we know of based on the artifacts and monuments that still remain.

Stories throughout the english version of the bible, today's modern version, speak of many events that changed the coarse of humanity in our past. If we look at the stories in the bible as historical accounts of what actually took place, then we need to research the origins of these stories. The hebrew version of the bible, known as the Old Testament, which is a much older version than the english translation, is derived from the stories of the Sumerian Culture. When we trace the origins of the Old testament we can see that it is also based on previous translations from subsequent older languages throughout history.

"That's still millions of years before humans existed"

That correct.

Your 3 BIG Myths:

1) the Big Bang when nothing exploded
and created everything.

2) rain falling on rocks and settling in a mud puddle and spontaneous self generating life sprang forth.

3) plants evolving into plant eating animals.

And when I snap my fingers you will wake up and believe these 3 myths as if they were fact.

"SNAP"
