The bible the myth, all great civilizations tried to explain the natural occurrences that happened in there daily lives, most failed. Some had great ideas and theories, but all explained things that could only be understood as supernatural. The bible is an account of such occurrence. a book to educate the illiterate masses and give them a moral path to follow. As time passed we grew and obtained a vast amount of knowledge the writers of the bible couldn't even grasp.
From the outside looking into the bible it reflects the myths of the ancients and feels in the gaps with knowledge of their time. It has no relevance with today's culture or technology. We need only to look upon it as a attempt in history, society, but nothing more. It is the moral code of conduct of the time and just for bronze age Palestine. It has no place in the moral realm of today, nor is it justifiable.
We as a species need to understand what the bible has to say, understand that it had a time and to place but we have surpassed the knowledge bronze age man, it is no longer needed to be that moral guide. We no longer need to search its text for meaning. The truth is there its a myth nothing more.

Must... resist... urge... to troll..

I wholeheartedly agree with you.

The Bible (and the Quran for that matter) is codswollop.

WOW...quess that does it then. Course there is the Jungian collective thing, but hey, guess its settled. Most scholars know the mybe of the texts contained in sacred scripture. This was determined through historical, textual and literary criticism.

Your perception about the Bible is as flawed as the devil himself. Of course the Bible has great relevance in today's world. And yes, there are prophecies that are being fufilled today that you are not aware of. You fail miserably to comprehend the scriptures and you are clueless about the current world events and how it correlates with what has been said then. The Torah, Koran, Kebra Negast.
They are all relevent. And you are not.

You can keep your fairy tale book of myths to yourself. Its not needed today and wont be needed tomorrow. Yeah bronze age Palestine. that's what we need to base our modern society on. The moral standard of the time, fits right in today. Out dated and obsolete. no longer needed and should be seen as it is, Fairy Tales written long after it happen and glorified by men nothing more.

Wasn't it Nitzche that stated religion would be dead by the end of his generation only to have a Major Bible Study be held in his house for nearly 50 years starting right after he passed away?

By what evidence to you espouse this prophetic death of religion?

I am assuming you have more than mere desire and opinion?

You can learn from the bible. The problem is when people elevate it to being something it isn't, and very clearly isn't. Everything, no matter the source, should be examined critically.
