There are 7427 blatant absurdities in the bible. Among them:
The study of inconsistencies in the Bible has a long history. In the 17th century, Spinoza considered the Bible to be “a book rich in contradictions.” In the 18th century, Thomas Paine in “The Age of Reason” compiled many of the Bible’s self-contradictions. And in 1860, William Henry Burr produced a list of 144 self-contradictions in the Bible. This is an updated list of over 712 inconsistencies in the Bible.
Genesis 9:2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.
This verse establishes humans as the fearless masters of the Earth. This blatant idiocy has been used by bible believers to justify all kinds of cruelty to animals and environmental destruction. It has also caused many idiots to grab rattlesnakes as a way to get into heaven. Once again the batteries in God’s omniscience gadget must have been dead because “the fear of you and the dread of you” still cause many people to scream at the sight of a spider, mouse or a roach.
