well not a full bible just the new testament. The only thing is I am a big agnostic, and the 'holy' text isn't enough for me to believe. It is probably the most historically inaccurate thing ever written. With that being said, I didn't have a chance to deny the guy handing them out, he was standing in the middle of where I had to walk, so rather than be rude or try to dodge him I took one. My question to you, pit, would be how to get rid of it. I don't want to trash it because I don't want to disrespect it or what it symbolizes, I was thinking about going somewhere and just leaving it on a table, any suggestions?

Give it to a mormon next time they knock on your door.

I was given a pocket bible of sorts yesterday at college. My friend ripped most of it up, I ended up recycling it

lol, I don't think the mormons are going to come knocking on our dorm doors any time soon, but I do know some mormons so I may throw it at them next time I see them.

Read it. It's worth reading. Then use it for toilet paper if it has nice soft pages.

I remember a friend of mine putting a firecracker between a Bible. Huh. Give it to a homeless guy, maybe he'll put it to good use.

my only problem is that it has never been proved right, no one can even prove that jesus ever existed outside of the bible, and he didnt even have a name until some disciples came up with a name around 400ad or something like that

But it's never been proven right either.

perhaps you can hold on to it and read it. the bible is one of those books that has defined civilization for quite a while...

I actually thought about that but on the inside cover it says 'not to be sold' so if there is a god he may get pissed about that.
I was also thinking of putting jesus' signature in it and selling that bad boy as if jesus had personally signed it, i mean people say that he has spoken to tham, why can't he sign autographs.

ACtually in its original language of Aramaic some words dont even transfer to latin, and some latin words dont transfer to english or italian, and in the bible used now a days, a lot of stuff has been completely left out because it would make some things in the bible questionable. So what I meant by inaccurate is, the version I have right now is NOTHING like the original text b/c it has been altered to conform to the church's views.

I didn't mean for this to turn into a religious debate, but what els can you expect from some people in the pit. I was expecting serious answers as well as a couple lulz.

Well, I think you should read it, and then give it away. If you're agnostic then arguably you ought to be informing yourself as much as possible about all religions. I'm an atheist, but it pisses me off when people criticise something they haven't even read. In all other forums of debate they would be ridiculed.

Its not like I haven't studied religions in searching for my own, I just know what I don't believe.

you just said if there is a God that he might get annoyed if you sold it since it says not to sell so if your worried that He will get mad then you just admitted to yourself that you're not sure if He exist or not so why not read it and then decide if you want it or not and if you don't then give it to someone who looks like they could use. if it can't change your life then maybe it could for someone else. =)

God is in all of us so technically if you signed it 'God' rather than 'Jesus' you could sell it as an authentic autograph. I wonder if that would work with checks....

No I know, of course you have. I wasn't having a go at you, it was an 'in general' thing. I like your idea of leaving it in public somewhere for somebody else to pick up.

Use it for wank wipes. When you've finished, tear out a page and use it. The paper's really good for that.

I said I was agnostic, not atheist there is a difference, I leave all possibilities open, but as I said earlier, I know what I don't believe and that isn't going to change unless I see god or jesus first hand or it can be scientifically proven.

i believe that we are each our own gods; as we are the centre of our own universes, and our ultimate responsibility is to take care of ourselves and survive and fulfil our purposes in life e.g. procreate. Our accountability is to ourselves and our own morals. The greatest thing a person can do is to do what they think is right, you can't ask anything else of anyone.

happiness is a journey, not a place.

actually, the NT was written in greek.

but yeah, if you really don't want it, just leave it someplace. someone will pick it up.

ok that's cool man just leave it somewhere then so that someone else can read it that's probably a more respectable thing to do then to just let it go to waste =)
