Back in the 1960’s there was a preferred Television series referred to as Get Clever. The show was a spoof of James Bond-variety counter-espionage. Agent 86, a.k.a. “Smart,” was played by Don Adams. I did not see quite a few episodes, but I do recall a gag he usually repeated. When Clever reported to the head of his agency, he would from time to time say issues like, “Would you think there had been 200 of them?” There would be a lengthy pause, and then, “Would you think 100? What about 75?”
Would you think this report: a guy fed 5000 males with five loaves of bread and two fishes? Properly, would you think 50 loaves and 200 fishes? Would you think 500 males, and no ladies and young children? Did not you think me when I told you he also walked on water? Would you think me if I stated the lake was frozen? Would you think a man lived to be 400 years old, and then he constructed a gigantic boat, when any 100 year old man would have difficulty constructing a ship model? What else?
One particular commentator wrote about an atheist mother’s knowledge reading Genesis to her tiny girl, when the girl burst out laughing “A speaking snake!” Now, that is funny. Wonder what language snakes speak: Hebrew? Greek? King James English? Did he speak with a lisp, like Daffy Duck? How did he pronounce these g’s and w’s? Would you think a snake stood upright, when its complete skeleton screams “Crawl”?
Now, the complete book is filled with jokes. Individuals inform you “God inspired” this ridiculous book. And right here you believed “God” did not have a sense of humor! How about a couple of hundred troops playing trumpets – would you think these sounds knocked down stone walls 10 feet thick? O.K., would you think two feet thick? Guys floating up like balloons, by means of the clouds? Just recall what the Christian apologist Tertullian, who died 1800 years ago, stated: “It is not possible for a man to come back from death thus, it need to be correct.” And: “It’s particular due to the fact it is not possible.” Tosser!
It really is astounding, just how gullible some men and women are.Now we have sci-fi. Back then, these gullible ignorant folk had been entertained with inane stories projected bigger-than-life, with their personal Paul Bunyans and Supermen of the deserts. For instance, the Egyptians have no records of a Moses ever getting in Egypt, let alone a collection of all the negative stuff stated to have occurred to them, triggered by a Hebrew god! If we laugh at scriptural silly, outrageous stories and claims, it is due to the fact they are laughable from the starting to the finish of time. They study like the tall stories of drunks, or males higher on LSD. ( “Revelations”- they are certainly on hallucinogens.) Notice?
It really is astounding, just how gullible some men and women are. If a salesman goes into a neighborhood and tries to sell insurance coverage guaranteeing the purchaser will reside healthily for a thousand years, not only would he uncover no takers, he’d be laughed out of the neighborhood. But if he puts on a black dress, hangs a cross about his neck, carries that gilt-edged book and is promoting eternal life, you must treat him with respect?! Guys who could not develop toilet paper (anything to truly advantage humans), claim to be founts of wisdom and raise men and women from the dead, even 1 man so lengthy-gone his physique was rotting? Hilarious.
If you take outright lies, compound and embellish them, retain ’em coming 1 following the other till you get tons of them, you have made a giant joke book. Then you contact it “tradition.” That is a very good summation of “the Bible.” The Joke’s on absolutely everyone who believes it. My mom would say, “Fool me as soon as, shame on you fool me twice, shame on me.” Do not get fooled in the very first spot you can laugh out loud.
The lies pile up into the thousands in that Joke book. Some people take them seriously! What would occur if these critical believers elected a man for president who lies like their book does?
