The American Bible Challenge

http://gsntv.com/shows/the-american-bible-challenge/

 

 So GSN has cancelled High Stakes Poker and instead has picked up what is certainly going to be the show of the century, "The American Bible Challenge". I thought that we should suggest some questions that ought to appear to see how well the contestants really know their bible.

 

For example,

When the children of Israel came across a man picking up sticks on the Sabbath and brought him to Moses, what punishment did the Lord recommend?

Why did the Lord send two bears to kill 42 children?

What action does the bible recommend a man take if he looks at a woman with lust?

What horrible act did Ananias and Sapphira commit that caused the Lord to smite them?

 

I'm sure the more scholarly among us can come up with thousands of great questions for the show.

The Old Testament is a treasure trove of filth and depravity, and I'm speaking of the "Bible heroes".

For a bonus round, they

For a bonus round, they could have questions on God ordained rape:

Q: When does God permit war rape?

A: As long as you call her your 'wife'. Then divorce her when she no longer pleases you.

 

Why not have RRS or other atheist groups do a parody Internet show?

Gambling and the bible, both rely on the scam that the house doesn't make money if it is a fair game. Vegas makes money the same way the bible does. It sells you a utopia that does not exist and shanks you with fine print. Credit cards and home loans  run along the same Monty lines, "Guess which cup the ball is under".

This is not a challenge is as much as it is the desperate act for believers to compete with the other scams that make money.

lol, he wouldn't be an all loving god if he would have burdened a single poor bear with killing 42 children, 21 per bear is much more manageable.

21 is still quite a bit of work, especially if they start running away, hope the good lord saw fit to provide the poor bears with some gatorade. After all a moral god wouldn't want the bears to suffer and would want them to keep their energy up to kill the children quickly.

First off, bears don't sweat. Second- you believe atheletes drink gatorade to "keep(ing) their energy up"?

It's better to keep quiet and be thought stupid.... you know the line.
