Prototype_1You know you're not suppose to read that passage literally.
Love this argument. Non Judeo-Christian people: "Here, look, the Bible says something that's blatantly untrue." Judeo-Christians: "Well, uhh, obviously that part isn't supposed to be taken literally, duh."
How do you know which parts of the Bible are and are not supposed to be taken literally? Is there a separate book that specifies which parts of the bible are supposed to be taken literally and which parts aren't? And why in the hell would the people who wrote it put it in there in the first place if it wasn't supposed to be taken literally? What is the point of that? To make it as hard as possible to figure out how to live the way God intended us to live and be good people? Did all the people who wrote it think it would be funny to put stuff in there that wasn't supposed to be taken seriously just to fuck with the people reading it thousands of years in the future?
Makes no sense to me why Christians can't just say there are parts of the Bible that are just wrong, and instead try to cover it up using words like "allegory" and phrases like, "you know you're not suppose to read that passage literally."
