There are 7427 blatant absurdities in the bible. Among them:
Faith is the glorification of voluntary ignorance, an act of mentalcide. To have faith, one must shut down the brain and avoid common sense.
Faith is blind trust, in the absence or in the face of evidence; it’s pretending to know things that you don’t know. How do you know that Jesus walked on water? How do you know that Jonas was swallowed by a large fish? How do you know that Noah filled a wooden boat with 1,250,000 species of animals in one day? How do you know that Jacob’s selective breeding program worked? How do you know that Mary was a virgin? How do you know what comes after death?
You need faith to convince and force yourself to accept what reason and common sense dictate to be silly and laughable stories.
