Proverbs – Chapter 17: Untitled

Bring on the wisdom!  LOL! We’ve had 16 chapters of worthless ‘wisdom’ so I’m sure this chapter will be better, right?  🙂

“Whoever mocks the poor shows contempt for their Maker;   whoever gloats over disaster will not go unpunished.” – Proverbs 17:5

Here is one of the few good verses in the Bible. One shouldn’t mock the poor nor should one gloat over a disaster. The part about the Maker is bullshit, but the rest is good.  

“Better to meet a bear robbed of her cubs than a fool bent on folly.” – Proverbs 17:12

Mother bears are quite protective of their cubs. I’d much rather face the fool than a pissed off mother bear!

“To have a fool for a child brings grief;   there is no joy for the parent of a godless fool.” – Proverbs 17:21

The ‘wisdom’ this chapter has to offer is advice to parents to disown their children because their children didn’t fall for the indoctrination.

Again…worthless wisdom.

Daniel 4:11

Today’s Crazy Bible Verse comes from the book of Daniel and contains a heavy dose of anti-science.

“The tree grew large and strong and its top touched the sky; it was visible to the ends of the earth.” – Daniel 4:11

A tree that can be seen from the ends of the Earth?  The ends of the Earth? This verse implies a flat Earth and a very tall tree, much taller than any tree on Earth.  Sigh.

Proverbs – Chapter 16: Untitled

Today we continue our trek through the book of Proverbs and look to receive more biblical “wisdom”.

“The Lord works out everything to its proper end…” – Proverbs 16:4

Including the death of starving children?

“Kings detest wrongdoing, for a throne is established through righteousness.” – Proverbs 16:12

WTF?  Is the Bible seriously saying there’s never been a bad leader?  Ever??!?!?!?! Seriously?!?!

“How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver!” – Proverbs 16:16

What if that gold and silver is to buy much needed food for children?  Any moral person would argue gold/silver in this case is far better than wisdom.

“A violent person entices their neighbor  and leads them down a path that is not good.” – Proverbs 16:29

This describes God perfectly!  A violent person who leads others down a not so good path.

Once again, another chapter in Proverbs that professes to provide us wisdom but provides very little useful wisdom.  Hungry? God has a plan for you. Need money to buy food? Sorry, but wisdom is better than food. SMH.

Proverbs – Chapter 15: Untitled

Let us continue our trek through Proverbs as we gain ever more ‘wisdom’.  

“The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.” – Proverbs 15:3

So God watches children suffer horribly and starve to death?

“A fool spurns a parent’s discipline, but whoever heeds correction shows prudence.” – Proverbs 15:5

Do you hear that little kids?  It is godly to let your parents beat the shit out of you.

“Stern discipline awaits anyone who leaves the path; the one who hates correction will die.” – Proverbs 15:10

Do you desire to use your critical thinking skills?  Then prepare for the beating of your lifetime!

“Better a small serving of vegetables with love than a fattened calf with hatred.” – Proverbs 15:17

What great wisdom to a starving child!  I know you are starving and have little food, but just remember, love fills the stomach more than food!!!  Fuck you God.

“The Lord is far from the wicked,   but he hears the prayer of the righteous.” – Proverbs 15:29

Say what???  ROFL!!! The Lord brought evil into this world, according to the Bible.  By definition God is wicked!!!

Another chapter in Proverbs filling us with biblical ‘wisdom’ that really does nothing the help society.

Proverbs – Chapter 14: Untitled

In the last chapter of Proverbs we found the Bible thinks it is wise to beat your kids.  Sheesh. Well, let’s read on for more wisdom in this chapter.

“The house of the wicked will be destroyed, but the tent of the upright will flourish.” – Proverbs 14:11

If your life’s turned upside down, guess what?  You were wicked!!!

“The simple believe anything, but the prudent give thought to their steps.” – Proverbs 14:15

Such as believing in talking snakes and donkeys and living inside a fish for three days?  Hmmm.

“All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.” – Proverbs 14:23

Working three jobs to make ends meet and put food on the table for your family?  Guess what? You’re not working hard enough! Instead of working 70 hours per week, put in 80 hours per week at $7.25/hr.  Sheesh.

“The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, turning a person from the snares of death.” – Proverbs 14:27

This is just one of several verses in this chapter stating you must fear the Lord to be wise.  Bullshit. It’s child abuse, not wisdom.

“A king delights in a wise servant, but a shameful servant arouses his fury.” – Proverbs 14:35

How dare those slaves be shameful!!!

Another chapter of supposed ‘wisdom’ that is nothing but a bunch of bullshit that places the blame on the victims.  Life not going right? It can’t possibly be the random nature of life. Instead, it MUST be your fault somehow. It’s the disgusting rationale too many Christians use to justify evil in this world.

Jonah 1:17

It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and it doesn’t get any crazier than the Bible saying a person can live inside a live fish for three days.

“Now the Lord provided a huge fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.” – Jonah 1:17

Yes, you read that right.  Jonah lived inside a fish for three days and three nights.  If you believe snakes and donkeys can talk, it’s not that far fetched to believe people can live inside fish for multiple days.  Personally I prefer to live in a world of reality and living inside of a fish is bullshit.

Proverbs – Chapter 13: Untitled

Who’s ready for some biblical wisdom?  🙂

“A wise son heeds his father’s instruction, but a mocker does not respond to rebukes.” – Proverbs 13:1

The Bible describes God as the father and us as his children.  When he commands rape, slavery, and murder, are we wise to follow his instructions?  Fuck no!!!

“Whoever scorns instruction will pay for it, but whoever respects a command is rewarded.” – Proverbs 13:13

Again, it is far more wise to ignore instructions of rape, slavery, and murder than respect evil commands.  The wise person is one who does not follow this evil god of the Bible.

“Whoever disregards discipline comes to poverty and shame, but whoever heeds correction is honored.” – Proverbs 13:18

Poverty and shame come to those who don’t properly beat their children as the god of the Bible demands!!!

“Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them.” – Proverbs 13:24

See what I mean?  If you don’t beat the fuck out of your kids when they are bad, God will beat the fuck out of you!

The moral of this chapter?  It is moral and wise to beat your children.  This is why you, the reader, are far more moral than God in the Bible.

Atheism Quotes – Robert G. Ingersoll

Today’s Atheism quote comes from Robert G. Ingersoll.

“If the people were a little more ignorant, astrology would flourish — if a little more enlightened, religion would perish.” – Robert G. Ingersoll

I love this quote!  With the rise of the internet and access to other Atheists and information on religion, religion is on a decline.  A slow decline, but it’s amazing what knowledge can do to one’s critical thinking!

Proverbs – Chapter 12: Untitled

Today we continue through the book of Proverbs and the mighty ‘wisdom’ it has in store for us.

“A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones.” – Proverbs 12:4

And what makes a disgraceful wife?  One who is not a slave to her husband and thinks for herself?

“The wicked are overthrown and are no more, but the house of the righteous stands firm.” – Proverbs 12:7

There are wicked people today.  And some who do quite well with their lives.  Besides, the Bible tells us God brought evil into this world.

Better to be a nobody and yet have a servant  than pretend to be somebody and have no food.” – Proverbs 12:9

It’s better to have a slave than to go hungry?  This is the wisdom the Bible shares with us?

“Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies have no sense.” – Proverbs 12:11

So those who work the land have never suffered a drought?  

“No harm overtakes the righteous, but the wicked have their fill of trouble.” – Proverbs 12:21

I thought you were a good person, but then when you were diagnosed with cancer, I realized you weren’t a righteous person.  Only the righteous avoid cancer. Fuck you God.

“The prudent keep their knowledge to themselves, but a fool’s heart blurts out folly.” – Proverbs 12:23

The Bible shares with us the great wisdom of keeping knowledge to oneself.  Sigh.

“Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in forced labor.” – Proverbs 12:24

Lazy people become slaves?  God brought evil into this world according to the Bible and and supported slavery.

What a worthless pile of bullshit!  Wisdom? Hardly! Every verse in this chapter can be basically boiled down to stating the good are good and the bad are bad.  With no evidence to back it up.
