The bible vs. Wikipedia.

This image made me smile.  :)

People who write things in the 21st century are more enlightened about morality and science than writers from a particularly ignorant part of the world 2,000 years ago.  Who knew?  And if you insist that god inspired the contents of the bible, you’re just painting your all-knowing, all-wise god as a being with less scientific and moral sense than modern high schoolers.  Of course, the trappings of the bible are not “ignorant”…they’re parables.  Either that or they’re just figurative language that was intended to mean the opposite of what they actually say (which is pretty shitty writing for a supposedly all-knowing god).  :P
