There are 7427 blatant absurdities in the bible. Among them:
Luke 14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
One cannot be a disciple of Jesus unless he hates his mother, father, wife, children, brothers, sisters, and even his own life. That says a lot about family values.
