Well of course you are going

Well of course you are going to find contraadictions in a book made by a bunch of human beings who made everyone believe that god spoke to them.

Yeah but you would expect

Yeah but you would expect those contradictions to come from different human beings at least.

The bible, and the books of

The bible, and the books of the new testament specifically, *were* written by several different humans.

I really like this photo

I really like this photo because it puts forth biblical scriptures - make more! Honestly I do not research the bible, I don't have the desire to. But I do love bringing up various contradicting/peculiar scriptures to people who are so strong in supporting the bible and telling me how I should believe based upon its words.

I really like the photo too

I really like the photo too but for different reason, I like it because it shows Jesus swinging on a cross in a way that makes it look like a good time- like he's having fun! Makes me smile every time I see it.
