Here's the thing: some of the atheists here look equally nerdy.

Not in the elements they describe.

Yeah, especially the ones that debate/argue scripture.

I don't consider you an atheist, you are a curiosity, but a pleasant one.

Opinion: A great video, lot's of truth there.

How disingenuous.

If scriptures were prone to a single interpretation, then why are there the myriad of different sects. Some use them for many wives, so to promote gays, some to discriminate against the and on and on.
Further, modern scholarship is showing that damn near half of the scriptures are forgeries and the other half have unknown authors while those who study the Eastern religions for comparison see plagiarism throughout the Bible.

Try using that shifty look on the bible to see just what that book of myths is.
I have some respect for it as a book of wisdom but that is it.

In fact, I has just started a new thread that speaks partly to that.
If Christians would educate themselves just a bit, much of their idiocies would die.

I spent a great deal of my life as a biblical scholar. If anyone can be called a nerd, it is certainly me.

I'm a very obsessive person. When I was a Christian, and even after I ceased to call myself a Christian, I had a very unhealthy obsession with biblical studies. Though, to be honest, I've learned a lot, I don't regret anything.

Course, now, the only way you could get me to read a bible is if you wanted me to sit in at a bible study and contradict just about every single thing that everyone gets out of it.

That said, it would be kind of hard to drag me to a bible study. I am not fun to have at bible studies, because I've yet to go to one where the people studying it aren't borderline retarded. I hate bible studies. Take a scripture out of context, say what it means to you. That is what most of it is. I find that 90% of the time, I'm just placing the piece of scripture into context, and explaining what it ACTUALLY FUGGIN means. Which, when put into context, is usually pretty lucid.

That wouldn't even really be that bad if there weren't arrogant preacher types around to muddle everything up and keep people ignorant. Who are you going to listen to, the guy who actually reads the thing and makes sense, or the guy who wears a suit and takes your money on Sundays?

Hey, if you're dumb enough to pay the guy, he better know what he's talking about.

IMHO, 90% of religion is tradition, and 10% is belief.
