The Atheist's Book of Bible Stories
Over the years, I have posted all of the chapters from my Atheist's Book of Bible Stories on this site.
However, since the original posting, many of the chapters have been polished and updated.
The complete book is now available for downloading, if anyone is interested: http://www.sendspace.com/file/qwpjol
-At first I thought it would be a cartoon book (kind of a spoof on the yellow 'Bible stories' book), so when I started browsing, my eyes started glazing over, but THEN! I saw that this is actually the full version of a JWD post i once bookmarked. The post I'm thinking of is the one in which you posted from the "The numbers of the book" chapter. I loved that part.
So now that I know what this actually is; thanks a lot! Good job (haven't actually read anything but that one part yet, but I'm guessing the rest is good too).
Congratulations, you hooked me from the introductory
flypage QUOTES, and that's a pretty impressive feat.
I'm one page in and already struck by such phrases as:
"Fear and guilt were stuffed into every crack, to prevent the light from seeping through."
" I will not compare translations, until I find one that translates around a mistake."
Wonderful writing, thank you so much for posting this.
Your book continues to be one of my favorite reads. Everytime I read it I have this overwhelming desire to share it with the world, the christian world that is. I shared one chapter with a JW friend who I can talk freely with, it was the chapter entitled "The Numbers of the Book." The response was that the person didn't have an interest in stuff like that. I know that was just an excuse, because I'm fairly certain that person started reading and didn't get too far before realizing it was time to cover the ears and started chanting "LA LA LA LA LA LA".
The assumptions you make in the preface are so important. Of course, no christian could abide by those.
I would like to look at it, but at the moment I'm in Saudi and due to religious paranoia the Saudi government censors certain Internet sites. I'm not sure why they decided that sendspace.com should be censored, but it seems kind of ironic that I can't look at anti-Christian information because of their censorship.
Anyway, I thought that I would post here to bookmark the thread so I can look at it when I get out of this forsaken place.

Wow, that sucks. Would it be okay if I emailed it to you?

Mine too! It's not at all a dry listing of what's wrong with the Bible. It's a funny, irreverent look at some of the more absurd items. You don't have to be an atheist to appreciate it.
Talk about "food at the proper time"!
I just got my PDA's battery replaced and now I've got some good reading for this Sunday's meeting.
I just took a quick peek at the introductory pages. Looks great.
Thank you Running Man.
Thanks for the update RM.
I enjoyed reading them the first time around. It is time I did a refresher course in atheism so I will read them again.
