There are 7427 blatant absurdities in the bible. Among them:
A lie is a lie even if 200 million people believe it; the truth is the truth, even if no one believes it.
The mere honesty of true science, waiting for sure and verifiable answers, makes it impossible for many to rely on. That’s where religion steps in to fill in the blanks; it has an answer for everything under, above and behind the sun. It suffices to mention anything and religion will go to great length to staple an undated instructional tag on it, without an ounce of proof or evidence.
All that is required is a donation, and religion will spit out an answer faster than Porky Pig can say “that’s all folks”.
