An Atheist Left This Long Message in a Hotel Room Bible

A Reddit user opened up his hotel room Bible only to discover that another atheist had already gotten there first:

Side effects of believing anything in this book: racism, sexism, homophobia, paranoid delusions, Crusades, inquisitions, genocide, genital mutilation, logical fallacies, superstition, lack of scientific understanding, and magical worldview.

If you experience any of these symptoms, drop this Bronze Age bullshit immediately. Learn to enjoy reality.

Wise words all around. And much more of a personal quality than just slapping a warning sticker on the cover.

Maybe someone going through a rough time will open up that Bible, read those words, then realize the answers she needs are nowhere to be found in that book.

That thought always makes me feel better, anyway.
