There are 7427 blatant absurdities in the bible. Among them:
Most wars, the Crusades, the Inquisition, 9-11, arranged marriages to minors, blowing up girls schools, oppression of women and homosexuals, fatwas, ethnic cleansing, honor rapes, human sacrifices, genocide, burning witches at the stake, suicide bombings, Jihads, condoning slavery, the systematic raping of little children… all above are caused by religion.
