  1. Haha! Good one! Ten commandments look good framed on a bathroom wall.

    The thingking atheist must not have thought too hard on actually getting the commandments right…they got the first four wrong and all the rest out of order. Haha if you’re going to bash something, make sure you have the fundamental facts right!

      Dear Mr/Ms ZztheX,

      You complain about the ordering? You do know that the Bible itself does a lousy job of ordering the commandments? There are at least three different sets of commandments in the old testament. They aren’t numbered. And some of them aren’t ten, but 14-15.

      So perhaps you mean the ten commandments in Exodus 34 (excerpt):

      “Of all thy cattle thou shalt sanctify the males, the firstlings of ox and sheep”
      “The firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb; and if thou wilt not redeem it, then thou shalt break its neck.”
      “Thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, even of the first-fruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the turn of the year.”
      “Three times in the year shall all thy males appear before the Lord GOD, the God of Israel.”
      “Thou shalt not offer the blood of My sacrifice with leavened bread; neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the passover be left unto the morning.”
      “The choicest first-fruits of thy land thou shalt bring unto the house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in its mother’s milk.”

      It would seem this is one of those cases where the believer haven’t read his Bible properly. You’d be surprised how much atheists know about the Bible. The guy above calling himself The Thinking Atheist was a faithful and proselytizing believer for 30 years before rejecting his faith.

      After 3,000 years, Christianity still haven’t finished interpreting which commandments are valid.

      If the Bible is to much of a burden to read, the whole mess of the commandments is readily explained on a neutral and factual wikipedia page:

      Of course, you are free to ignore all of this and just put your blind trust in what some priest or your parents told you. Your choice.
