I wasn't attacking anybody. And I never once said ALL Christians believe EVERY impossible story in your book of fiction is true.
And yes, I do know the numbers on "Bible Literalism". I've seen the latest gallup polls and shit. And while, thankfully, the % who think the bible is the literal word of god is declining, it's still embarrassing.
There's the evangelical, young earth creationism wack jobs that believe every word and story in the bible is the word of god and true and then there's the rest who cherry pick the **** out of it.
Yes, I realize alot of Christians cherry pick the "loving" verses and stories and think all the good shit is true, yet somehow ignore all of the awful immoral parts, the impossible stories and obvious contradictions, yet still believe it's inspired by the Christian god.
They ignore the genocide, misogyny, racism, incest, condoning of rape and slavery, etc...Yet go right to their bible when it comes to homosexuality and other moral issues that fit their agenda. It's pathetic.
And again, what is ignorant about the fact that the story of Adam and Eve is impossible and not true?
What is ignorant about the fact that that is where "original sin" began and if there was no original sin, there was no need for a "savior" Jesus to forgive us all for our sins. Without Jesus Christ, there's no Christianity.
What is ignorant about stating that the religion is based upon the story of Adam and Eve and that story is obviously not true?
The term original sin doesn't have to mean it spawned all other sin. It was just the first. Everyone sins, and it doesn't have anything to do with the Adam and Eve story. Their sin was simply the first one, but is in no way related to any of my sins. Therefore, yes, I ask Jesus to forgive my sins. The same holds true with all of the genocide, racism, incest, etc. that you mention. Those are all sinful things.
