He is just displaying his dislike of Christianity. It is similar to many other atheists on this site. They love to load a comment with a zinger like that because it is fun for them. It is very disrespectful, but I guess that is the point. Just ignore it.

I didn't say anything in it was true. I said it was the most influential book ever written, so people who strive to be educated should have some idea what's in it, or, at the very least, should not celebrate being ignorant of what's in it.

+2
level 75
Jul 10, 2019
Ironically @devantilya, the 'legitimate' translations you've read are literally vulgar. As in, translated into your language (aka a vernacular, instead of Latin etc). Etymologically the root of vulgar means common. A lot of Christians were burned, tortured, and killed by other Christians for translating the Christian bible into vulgar languages that common people could understand -- instead of allowing scriptural literacy and interpretation to be monopolised by the clergy and edu-ma-cated elites. One guy's bones were dug up and thrown into a river decades after he died because people were still upset. So yeah, no shame in vulgarity as far as I can see. Snobbery and prudishness strike me as odd vestments for a slave liberation religion.

Sunday? Seventh day... nothing wrong with those
+1
level 38
May 25, 2019
^ For Seventh Day Adventists, the Sabbath is on Saturday, not Sunday. Also depends on which day you believe the week begins; Sunday? or Monday? - So "Sabbath" seems the only logical choice.
+2
level 77
Jun 12, 2019
for everybody that knows what they're talking about, the Sabbath is Saturday. Always has been. Though Sabbath now is sometimes used to refer to Sunday because at some point some Christians got confused and mixed up The Lord's Day with the Sabbath, even though it's super clear even from Christians' own stories that these are two distinct and different days, Jesus rising from the dead 3 days after the day before the Sabbath, in other words on Sunday.

My word choice above might be potentially confusing. Jesus rose "on the third day," not "three days later." So.. on the first day he was crucified (Friday), on the second day he was in the tomb (Saturday, the Sabbath, the reason why they had to cut him down and get him buried in a hurry so they wouldn't break the Sabbath), on the third day he rose (Sunday, the day after the Sabbath).

I was thinking the same thing. Just because satan appeared in the form of a serpent to Eve, doesn't automatically suggest that Eden was infested with them.

Whether or not a single snake qualifies as an "infestation," depends a lot on your opinion of snakes. I've known people who would classify a single snake in their entire state as an infestation!

Great quiz! One little quibble about the first clue though. Apostle wasn't a term synonymous with the 12 disciples, but a more broad term referring to teachers in the early church. The Apostle Paul, for example, was an apostle, though he was not one of the 12 disciples.

I typed Methuzulah something like three times. I do realize it isn't the correct spelling, but it IS the spelling of a music artist. I think it is reasonable to think the one in the bible is spelled the same. Can you please accept it as an alternative spelling?
