the bible is made up of vigorous lies and twisted stories. god, or whoever theyre talking about does not have any plan for us.
All the same reasons why every other claimed deity figure of human history is fake.

"Properly read, the Bible is the most potent force for atheism ever conceived." Isaac Asimov

Just 21 things that are 100% wrong in the bible:

1. There is not one bit of physical evidence for a global flood - no geological evidence, no mass extinction a few thousand years ago, no evidence that all life was wiped out and gradually repopulated from a single location.
2. You don't get striped goats by having your goats copulate in front of striped sticks.
3. Stars can"t hover over a spot on earth and accurately guide people to that place.
4. Earthquakes do not happen when an angry god shakes the earth.
5. The cure for leprosy is not rubbing birds" blood all over a person.
6. You can't cure snakebite by gazing at a brass snake on a pole.
7. All species of life did not come into existence in a single week.
8. Rain does not happen when windows are opened in heaven.
9. It is not possible to stop the sun as it travels across the sky.
10. The earth is not a few thousand years old.
11. Rabbits do not chew their own cud.
12. There are no four-legged fouls.
13. People can't float to the sky.
14. Rabbits do not have hoofs.
15. Stars cannot fall to earth.
16. The Earth is not a circle.
17. Pi does not equal 3.
18. The earth is not flat.
19. Donkeys can't talk.
20. Bats are not birds.
21. Snakes can't talk.

The Bible was written. Meaning a person wrote it, a scribe.
It could be code, metaphor, based on something older, allegory or a practical joke of the ages for all we know.
It doesn't matter. What matters is it is STILL affecting and controlling people today.

It's about the will of a person, entity or being, overriding and sadistically imprisoning the will of all others. Considering its or their will greater than the will of everything else and psychopathically imprisoning and controlling everyone using various ponzi schemes and basically organized crime.
Not only that it lays plans for genocide, murder, vampirism, body mutilation of young children, cruelty, enslaving other races, fascism, delusions of grandeur, racism, murderous envy/jealousy, use of terror, the abuse of women, and even a planetary apocalypse. And people AGREE to it, which is the stupidest part of the entire abomination.

The ironic thing is, that this "god" creates all this pain, bloodshed, and chaos only to promise a savior figure, like a carrot on a stick that never comes, or worse, is supposed to come after worldwide destruction (which seems to be the goal to achieve).
