I understand what you're getting at, but I believe it is innacurate to say the bible is a complete fairytale. Some of it is, while other parts are apocryphal. And a great deal of it has proven to be historical (cross referenced with other historical texts).
I also don't mind if you want to tear down Easter, but be better grounded in your "facts" before spouting off, otherwise you will look the fool.
You want to be anti-Bush and anti-neocon? Great, it's a worthy cause (I think). But when someone comes along that makes an attack on something (Bush, Easter, whatever) and claims things that are just incorrect or erroneous, then my respect flies quickly out the window.
If WE want to really make a change in this world, then we must avoid attacking people's cherished Holidays with innacuracies.
If we want to be listened to, then we must first gain their respect.
On the other hand, if you want to dissassemble Easter, go for it. But write an episode of South Park (or whatever) and make it something we can laugh at.
But please do your research first so you don't sound like some anti-neocon-nut who isn't very well educated.
it is not inaccurate to not believe in giant magic bunnies.
The Bible is a joke. It has talking animals, a man living in a whales belly for three days and people with magic powers (they even have magic duals.) Ever read Levidicus? It is discussing, animal scrifices, death for basically any kind of vcrime including swearing at your parents.. Its homophobic. It supports slavery even in the Ten commandments it states that slaves don't have to work on the Sabbath (4th commandment) and that one should not covet their neighbor's slaves, wife or ox. (10th) then the next chaper Ex 21 you can read about how to beat you slaves and how it is wrong to beat them to death but Ok as long as they get up in a day or two (EX 21:20).
Are you an adult? Do you seriously think a book wear people live to be 700 years old and where all of Egypt is covered in frogs is not a fairy tale just because there is some real history mixed in with it?
I got my "Facts" and I will spout off. You look like a fool for believing in this nonsense. It was a poster for kids and it was funny. Must have hit a nerve. You have no idea how educated I am or how much I know about religion or History or the Neocons.
I think you're a spaz who can not emotionally handle anything undermining the religion you were taught as a child.
ps Being anti-neocon is totally irrelevent to being an atheist
