Bible And Catholic Church
I just stumbled across your web site and read a little. Actually I seem to agree with you.
I was raised as a "good catholic boy" by very sincere and devout parents. I had the religion "drummed" into my mind in a relentless fashion for 18 years.
Actually, and in point of fact, I don't believe one single thing that I was taught by or about the religion. Not one single thing. I don't believe any of it. Does it not seem bizarre that a person should grow to adulthood and not believe any of the "core values" of his life? Is that not schizophrenic? Is it not deeply and profoundly perverted?
In reality, I believe the teachings of the Catholic church to absolutely absurd. Preposterous in the extreme. Actually, beyond preposterous.
The core idea that a man (God incarnate) came back to life after being dead for three days is patently ridiculous. It violates all the laws of physics and therefore it is impossible. Utterly so. There is only one explanation that makes sense -- they lied. Which makes a tremendous amount of sense. In fact it explains everything. They were not "mistaken," or "confused," or "well meaning," or any other such nonsensical pablum. They lied in or to build a political, economic, social, and psychological juggernaut.
