Forgeries in the Bible

Of all the 66 texts in the Bible (the Roman Catholics have 73 books), there doesn't exist one single handwritten original. We don't even have the first copies of the originals, we just have copies of copies of copies of copies etc.

The writers in Antiquity also had somewhat looser standards for accuracy when writing down or copying texts. Sometimes they wrote in other authors' names (usually more famous and authoritative, authors), - they usually added, subtracted, altered and removed "historical" events in the texts as they saw fit. They often mixed fiction with non-fiction, and some could write texts in the name of their adversaries to discredit them, and then use the forged text against them later.

A Killing Joke

How barbaric is something that promotes killing when being laugh at?

Read your Bible to find out.

Here, Elisha was being teased by kids, calling him a baldie. Now, what did Elisha did? He asked God to send two she bears to rip 42 children to their death.

23 And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.
24 And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the Lord. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.
2 Kings 2:23-24King James Version (KJV)

Who killed Goliath??

David did (1 Samuel 17:50) - "Thus David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and he struck the Philistine and killed him; but there was no sword in David’s hand."

Elhanan did (2 Sam. 21:19)- "And there was war with the Philistines again at Gob, and Elhanan the son of Jaare-oregim the Bethlehemite killed Goliath the Gittite, the shaft of whose spear was like a weaver’s beam."

Read the Bible. Take your pick.

"The Christian Bible is a drug store. Its contents remain the same but the medical practice changes. For 1,800 years these changes were slight--scarcely noticeable.... The dull and ignorant physician day and night, and all the days and all the nights, drenched his patient with vast and hideous doses of the most repulsive drugs to be found in the store's steak.... He kept him religion sick for eighteen centuries, and allowed him not a well day during all that time." - Mark Twain and the Three R's, Ed. by Maxwell Geismar, p. 107

When confronted by an atheist, most Christians will advice them to examine the Bible so an atheist will know God. In seems there is a sort of intellectual dishonesty to such a recommendation. In the first place, a Christian who gives such suggestion is not even truthful enough to tell the atheist that he/she don’t know what Bible a non-believer should look at.

Eat Your Heart Out, Eliseo.

Funny for Mr. Ely Soriano to place everyone on his garbage bin. I saw this article from called “Eat Your Heart Out, Atheists!”. 

It's about some atheist telling Christianity promotes cannibalism base on John 6:51-54 which says “51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

I think it dander the Sorianism pride (hehehe!)

No Mob?

There is this story in the Bible in which I consider to be a clue that the whole thing didn't happen in reality and... No, it's not the resurrection story, or those miracles. Well, yeah, but this story is a real cream of the crop I would say.

It can be found in Mark 11:15–19, Matthew 21:12–27, Luke 19:45–48 and John 2:13–16

The story goes like this: Jesus visited the Temple in Jerusalem where the courtyard is described as being filled with livestock and the tables of the money changers, who changed the standard Greek and Roman money for Jewish and Tyrian money. And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. And he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. And he told those who sold the pigeons, "Take these things away; do not make my Father's house a house of trade."


Now Jesus did what? Without meeting any retaliation from those money changers? That's too unbelievable.

Imagine going to Quiapo, then start kicking those booths where they sell those graven images, turn over those card tables and then make a whip and start whipping all those people with a rope cord. Surely, someone in that group will stand up and give your ugly mug a taste of his fist. Now, here a guy like Jesus who can just whip everyone with a rope cord without facing the force of the entire mob of money changers and you want me to believe this shit really happened?

Jesus and the Fig Tree.

You know what I really hate, a fig tree killer!

When I question the story about Jesus killing the fig tree in the Book of Mark (11:12-13, 20-21) and the Book of Matthew (21:18-21), I always get different responses.

John the Atheist: Do you have to kill an innocent life form just to prove your point?

Christian: If the value of the “point” you are trying to prove is more valuable than the “innocent life”, why not. The Fig Tree represent the Jews.

The same "excuse" is found here in this Facebook post.

Liar, liar Christian pants on fire.

Lying for Christ again? You can see the original source of this Christian propaganda @

Here's The Answer to Your 10 Questions

I wonder why do these lists of questions claimed that non-believers can’t answer well? Maybe that’s because Christians assume that when a person answer differently from their standards and pre-conceive ideas that means you can’t answer it well. So without further adieu...let’s begin.

Hare! Hare! Ding! Dong!

“Different folks, different strokes”, that’s the same with believers. To justify god-belief, different believers propose different reasons to justify the existence of a god. Take this internet article from a certain Sivakumar Balasubramanian.

The Atheist Test, courtesy of the “Banana Man”

Ray Comfort (AKA the Banana man) is up to his dirty tricks again. The master of straw man and bad science is back. This time...since his so-called banana spit (AKA “atheist nightmare”) didn’t made any blow against atheism, he is now hallucinating in giving atheists some kind of a spiritual test.

Yep! That’s right folks! Mr. Comfort is publishing propaganda leaflets entitled “The Atheist Test” – now on sale in your local Christian bookstores!

Atheism is against the law...What law?

I think this is one of the funniest Christian tirades against atheism I have read in the Internet. The funny thing in this article is that the god-believer who wrote this is trying his very best to look like logical and scientific. According to this article, atheists have to break some “laws” of nature to become logical on its explanations. Well...if that’s the case, then that means atheism itself is illogical.

Proof of God’s Existence? Eh sa pambalot ata ng tinapa galing yan eh.

I have read a lot of articles about the existence of god, from the most scholarly written to the absurd and I can sometimes tell where the particular apologetics comes from. Most Pilipino Roman Catholics I have talked to uses philosophy to prove god exists, but I am astonished on how Filipino Born-Again Christians do it. Gosh! Where do they get their apologetics, from dried-fish wrappers? I have read Norman Giesler and William Craig Lane’s explanation and frankly speaking, I felt ridiculous comparing the following “apologetics” you are about to read to the works of Giesler and Lane. Today, I would like to share these “apologetics” that I have received and read in a certain Friendster group in which I am a member. Well...this is not an example of scholarly works and from the looks of it; they appear to be for laughs. Nevertheless, this is how most Filipino Born-Again Christians think they can attest their god’s existence.

John the Atheist answers LeastOfBrethren

More issues about the Bible, God and a certain wager.

Eli Soriano's "Chuwariwap" Boys.

Chuwariwap is a street lingo which means boot licker. Have you seen those variety shows from the 50’s and the 60’s? Is that the American Bandstand? Well…something like that, anyway, do you notice those people singing in the background while the singer sings. Yep, that’s them.

Most Christian commentators like Mr. Eliseo Soriano are surrounded by boot lickers like flies in a piece of a Butter Finger candy bar. I really don’t know the reason for this but I assume that these boot lickers have a positive effect on the commentator’s ego, that’s why he allows them to swarm around him. It’s really not hard finding boot lickers in a kennel full of fanatics.

Richard Dawkins once said that public debates only foster publicity. That’s a nice reminder but how about if these freaks are in the Internet? Do Mr. Soriano and his cahoots only utilize the Internet and blogs to gain publicity? Well it seems that way. I really don’t care if Mr. Soriano lambaste other Christians and especially the Iglesia Ni Cristo…it’s quite funny watching them throw mud at each other, but what if they began stepping on the atheist’s turf?

After giving a little piece of my mind in one of Mr. Soriano’s anti-atheist article, two of his lap dogs started to charge and believe me, their bark is worst than their bite.

First they ignored my criticism and if you will read their messages…well I think it’s more of a publicity stunt than a refutation. Hmmm... maybe you better read it yourself.

Science vs. "Science"

Is science a religion? Is it biased or relative? Well…most theists, post modernists and relativist will agree.

From the Christian apologetic book "When Skeptics Ask", there are two types of science: Operational Science and Origin Science. Operational science seeks answers that are testable by repeating the experiment over and over. Now, it is falsifiable if the cause does not yield the same effect. Its conclusions should allow one to project what will happen in future experiments. That makes operation science predictable. So there’s no room for a supernatural Sky Daddy in its findings.

Faith as a Virtue?

Next year will be election time again and this time we’re going to elect candidates that will represent our Nation. Funny that most of these aspiring candidates include Bible verses or the name of God on their campaign slogans and printed materials as if belief in God is a plus. It was not surprising that when Mrs. Aquino died on August 1, 2009, many reporters and articles (on newspapers, magazines, TV talk shows and the Internet) have pointed out her being faithful. The former President in known to her devotion to the rosary and the Roman Catholic Church.

I won't criticize her on her personal devotion to God. That's her business. What I'm after is how the common masses assume that when a person is devoted to God that makes him/her a good leader. As if faith is a positive virtue.

Lying for Jesus again?

Why are some Christians such liars?

See the picture? According to this, it is a picture of a Christian Nepali pastor that was being burned in Nepal for preaching the gospel.

Eh saksakan pala kayo ng mga sinungalin eh. [ What a bunch of liars! ]

It turns out that it was a picture of a thief being burned in 2006. The guy was a thief named Mario Quishpe and he was caught stealing in the city of Pelileo Grande, south of the capital Quito. That's in Ecuador, not Nepal. A few minutes after the picture is taken, he was rescued.


So, is lying a part of Christian evangelization?

The Mythical Jinn

"Genie" from the Disney animated movie "Aladdin."

Ok, you see them uttered by Muslim, well because the jinn is part of their Qur'an. In Qur'an 72:1 it says that, "It has been revealed to me that a group of the jinn listened and said, 'Indeed, we have heard an amazing Qur'an."

So what is a jinn?

According to a certain Islamic website...

The Jinn are beings created with free will, living on earth in a world parallel to mankind. The Arabic word Jinn is from the verb 'Janna' which means to hide or conceal. Thus, they are physically invisible from man as their description suggests. This invisibility is one of the reasons why some people have denied their existence. However, (as will be seen) the affect which the world of the Jinn has upon our world, is enough to refute this modern denial of one of Allah's creation. The origins of the Jinn can be traced from the Qur'an and the Sunnah. Allah says:

"Indeed We created man from dried clay of black smooth mud. And We created the Jinn before that from the smokeless flame of fire"
(Surah Al-Hijr 15:26-27)

Really huh?

The fact is that, the Jinn are pre-Islamic Arabian mythological characters and according to the information in the Arabian Nights, types of jinn include the shaytan, the ghoul, the marid, the 'ifrit, and the jinn. The 'ifrits seem to be the strongest form of jinn, followed by marids, and then the rest of the jinn forms. So a jinn is what we also known as a genie - Yeah, that "Genie in a bottle."

Ancient magicians and wizards civilizations pre-dating Mesopotamia, created magical lamps and bottles to trap these Jinn. These magical prisons, composed of gold, silver, and mixes of known & unknown elements, were then placed in a special temple.

However it was found that over time the tricky Jinn were able to use the power of pure thought to escape their magical confines. Also, with the help of Angelic forces who revealed that in order to keep the Jinn confined they must be released every so often in a controlled manner. This controlled manner resulted in the granting of wishes.

In addition, a powerful spell keeping them in a fantasy reality within their prison, distracts them from trying to escape. After this happened the trapped jinn officially became the magical genies that grant wishes we know of today.

So I guess those who wrote the Qur'an incorporated these mythological characters in their holy book.

Aladdin would be proud.

As Hemant Mehta has said, "Decent people, religious or not, will do everything they can to help the drowning person. It’s that simple."

Christian Memes?

Before you believe those Christian memes, read your Bible first.
