← Simply ... should I read the bible?

Tyler Durden's Avatar Jump to comment 5 by Tyler Durden

I'd just be interested in anyone's thoughts, is the Bible 'recommended reading'?

Yes. Read it. Read every book, chapter and verse. Even the boring ones (Matthew 1). It will certainly confirm your atheism, and help you see how sick and twisted the book actually is when it comes to advocating morality.

You may enjoy some of the literature (KJV), stories (Parable of the Talents) and analogies. But it will also equip you with more information and armoury than your Christian friends know how to deal with - as they've probably never read it.

(I've only read parts of the Qur'an, so, I would have a similar query: should I read the Qur'an?)
