I am going to a top ten list as to the reasons why I choose atheism. Here is reason number 10.
This is best summarized by a snide quote that I found from Mark Twain.
“It ain't those parts of the Bible that I can't understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand.
And, this is what I have come to understand. The Bible is a historical document that was created to contain and support the historical, political, legal, educational, psychosocial, and sociocultural agendas of its time. These issues are not relevant to me, and they should not be to people in modern times. When placed in its proper context, the Bible is a good fairytale at best.
