Am I the first to click the stupid poll option? What has become of me?

I read parts, but I think it is bullshit so I have no reason to read any further.

The truth is, Muslims never apologized for their faith having something to do with the attacks on 9/11.

I am currently in the process of reading the Bible.
I have read from Romans to the end and from Genesis to where I currently am in the middle of Isaiah.

So am I allowed to click 'Yup' on the poll?
#11
Nope. I've seen what it does to people.

some of it, but the writing style sucked. it was way too boring, the plot was rambling and inconsistent, I didn't connect with any of the characters, and I couldn't read past the first few chapters.

harry potter is much better.

Not all of it, but I study it often. It is my religion after all :p

Dare I post a serious answer in this thread?

I've read most of it and, while not a Christian, though Job was a great book that made you appreciate the shit you have.

heavily all the way through. how else can you make an opinion of the religion you were born into?

and honestly, after finishing it (read it a few times to be honest although after first time it was skimming parts) and doing a lot of research, i had to leave the church. can not stand to be a part of it. there are some interesting stories in there, but i dont believe its the religion for me.

I've never read it and I don't plan to either. In fact I barely read books at all.
That's a shame, books are great.

I agree with this. The events were so fake and I couldn't understand the plot.

Meh. I'm gonna go on the assumption that you're not religious.

Have you read every scientific paper on every facet of science? You don't need to read something cover to cover to understand it. Especially religion, which is usually told through stories that even a child can understand.

If all of science were able to be condensed down to one novel sized book I certainly would have read it.

Front to back, plenty of times. This was back when I was big on religion and such though, I remember fuck all now.
#32
i used to be catholic and reading the bible was what turned me into a born again agnostic. the hatred, sexism, and intolerance in deuteronomy and leviticus alone were enough for me to loose my faith. religion and all that noise is alright as long as it doesnt effect anyone but the practitioner. but anybody who says the bible is the word of god obviously hasnt read it or theyve figured out a way to "doublethink" themselves into accepting it.

I read it several times. It sucked. The worst part of it, for me, was that the "important" stories are the most vague and open to be interpreted a million different ways. These are the parts that Christians claim make it the ultimate in truth.

Christianity isn't really about knowing the Bible inside and out. It's supposed to be about a personal relationship between you and God, and the Bible is God's word to us as a guidebook to life. You don't memorize the instruction manual before you use something do you?
If I pray about something and I feel I get an answer in my heart, why would I turn to the Bible if I feel I've already gotten the answer from the source?
#36
Thanks sglover, I wasn't criticising you but just curious. It's nice that you have such faith in prayer.
#37
I read a bit of Genesis
That was back when I was 16 or 17 and was being forced to attend church.
The only way to stay awake was to read, and the only book available was The Bible.

They also had little envelopes for people who wanted to donate money.
I used to draw pictures all over the back
#38
I've read certain parts both in school and of my own free will (mostly in school, though). That being said, I feel as if I know many more of the stories from the Bible than the ones I personally read, probably from listening in mass as a child etc.

Yes. crazy work of fiction. Proverbs is good, the rest I can do without.
Smile when you say that.
