Reply to "If the Bible Is the..."

The Helio Biblio 'contradicts' itself because it is myth that is not supposed to be taken literally. Contradictions 'shouldn't' be a problem. What Fine is hilighting is that the literalist religio-fascists are idiots. "They" are the ones who teach that the Bible is the literal word of God(to all people) and therefore they create this paradox. They are the ones who teach religious dogma to control the masses, rather than the hidden essoteric teachings of the Abrahamic religions, therefore they create this problem for themselves...I mean, they can't expect us not to think now can they?...Well, maybe some of us...

I would also add that if they would stop insisting that the veneration of the 'aspects' or 'incarnations' of God is 'idol worship' than I think most of the Helio Biblio's 'contradictions' would dissapear. This 'polytheism' that is still present in the compilation of other ancient culture's spiritual traditions with a patriarchial twist, known today as the Bible, is largely what makes it sound like one big contradiction...

El, Elohim, Adonai, YHWH, Ehyeh-Asher-Ehyeh, Shaddai, and Tzevaot, between praise names and aspects we could go on and on...
