Bible is Nonsense-from a scientific point of view!

You don't believe? May be you have been programmed to think it is holy, virtuous and faultless.
But an independent analysis will convince you it is foolish non-sense. The Bible god punished Adam and Eve monstrously for their simple disobedience and their souls were thrown into raging fire! And Yahweh willed that every human be born in mortal sin! He enjoyed killing Israel’s enemies. and anyone from his tribe who displeased him. He persecuted  the Egyptians and his angels slit the throats of the innocent firstborns. He sent a deluge to kill all except Noah and burnt Sodom and Gomorrah. He enjoyed animal and human sacrifices and the smell of burnt fat and blood. He killed the 10 children of Job and later created 10 others for him in a play with Satan! Steve Wells counts he killed  2821364 in the Bible! (for details see my post, 'the Christian Father-god a diabolic monster.' 

The cruelest incident: (From  Genesis)  “Now as they were making their hearts merry, behold, the men of the city, certain sons of Belial, beset the house round about, and beat at the door, and spake to the master of the house, the old man, saying, Bring forth the man that came into thine house, that we may know him. And the man, the master of the house, went out unto them, and said unto them, Nay, my brethren, nay, I pray you, do not so wickedly; seeing that this man is come into mine house, do not this folly.  Behold, here is my daughter a maiden, and his concubine; them I will bring out now, and humble ye them, and do with them what seemeth good unto you: but unto this man do not so vile a thing. But the men would not hearken to him: so the man took his concubine, and brought her forth unto them; and they knew her, and abused her all the night until the morning: and when the day began to spring, they let her go. Then came the woman in the dawning of the day, and fell down at the door of the man's house where her lord was, till it was light. And her lord rose up in the morning, and opened the doors of the house, and went out to go his way: and, behold, the woman his concubine was fallen down at the door of the house, and her hands were upon the threshold.  And he said unto her, Up, and let us be going. But none answered. Then the man took her up upon an ass, and the man rose up, and gat him unto his place.  And when he was come into his house, he took a knife, and laid hold on his concubine, and divided her, together with her bones, into twelve pieces, and sent her into all the coasts of Israel. And it was so, that all that saw it said, there was no such deed done nor seen from the day that the children of Israel came up out of the land of Egypt unto this day.”                

The Bible literally bashes, kills, and inflicts violence against women. “And the daughter of any priest, if she profanes herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her father: she shall be burnt with fire." (Leviticus 21:9).  This book with sexual violence, sexual exploitation and the abuse of women spreads the idea that women exist for man’s sex needs. In the Bible women are considered evil. It is written, “Of the woman came the beginning of sin, and through her we all die.” Although God punishes both Adam and Eve for disobeying his directions, he places the majority of the blame on Eve for tempting her husband. Men and women are equal in every way. 

Brides, who were not virgins or who did not have their hymen intact (as a sign of virginity) had to be killed.  “If, however the charge is true and no proof of the girl’s virginity is found, she shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death.” Deuteronomy 22:20-21. But why there is no punishment mentioned for non-virgin men? Women would become non virgins only if men violated them. But why it punishes women alone?  After winning a war with the Midianites Moses, as God had instructed him to do, asks to save  every girl who has never slept with a man. (Numbers 31:14-18) Even God receives 32 virgins as his share of the spoils, but they’re handed over to the priest. The reserved virgins will be raped of course.

Yahweh likes incest. There are descriptions of how Lot’s daughters have sex with their father to get pregnant! It cannot be a one day affair as getting pregnant will not happen overnight. It is also written that Cain, after killing his wife Abel, knew his "wife "(his own mother was the only one woman alive at that time as there is no mention of a sister for Cain in the Bible). Abraham marries his half-sister and God approves it. Onan was asked to have sex with his brother’s (whom God had killed) wife and since Onan refused to impregnate her God kills him.

NT is non-sense too.  Jesus lived and died a Torah abiding Jewish Pharisee. The righteous and poor guy exhorted the Jews to return to the ways of Yahweh. He called the hypo-critic Jewish elite 'white washed tombs' and 'sons of serpents,' and they forced  Roman procurator Pontius Pilate crucify the firebrand Jew as a public nuisance. Many felt that the poor guy wouldn't have to suffer so ignominiously and some of them started thinking Jesus was suffering for their sins. St Paul, moved by the vision of a 'cross-carrying bleeding Christ,' asserted he had suffered for the sins of others. He had died for the sins of the world-like the mythical gods! 

In the whole of the OT we do not find anywhere any plan of Yahweh to redeem man from his original sin. We come to know about god's plan of redemption only after St. Paul constructs his above theory. The Roman crucifixion of an ordinary Jew gets a new meaning. How can a punishment meted out by the rulers of the time become atonement for the sins of mankind? Following the Pauline doctrine, anonymous gospel writers make him like a mythical god-with virgin birth and miracles.   

Will an Almighty send His only son to get tortured, scourged and crucified as atonement?  
If God really wanted to help man he could have avoided sending the foolish test to the first parents. Instead, he sent the wily serpent to tempt Eve and as desired by god they failed. For that momentary disobedience God started punishing them.  Yahweh could have ignored the disobedience. Or, a nod of his head or little finger was more than enough to wash off the original sin.   

God turns against the Jews, his own people; he turns against  himself! 
God forgot his covenant with Abraham and his insistence on circumcision: his new followers could keep their foreskin and they simply had to get washed in water in his name. The whole thing makes foolish reading. Yahweh the god of the Jews, who had freed the Israelite from the Egyptian slavery and settled them in Canaan after  massacring thousands of soldiers of the kingdoms of Canaan  and traveled with them in the desert in an arc, and protected them like a fiend later  turns against them. Jesus the son of Yahweh predicts the destruction of Yahweh's temple in Jerusalem! 

Why did the loving Yahweh make every human get birth in sin? What have they done to deserve it? What was the need for Yahweh to impregnate Mary and give birth to Jesus-an act of deception and unfaithfulness to her husband!The followers of the poorest of the poor Jesus who did not even have a pillow to rest his head have lived licentiously and luxuriously at his expense. Perhaps many of the past popes match the OT god in violence, deceit, hatred, sex, incest and massacre.

How can Bible be the best book? How does it become the bestselling Book? May be it forced upon people as they force children to accept Christianity without any consent from them. Wherever there is a natural calamity in a poor country (like in Nepal after a quake, in Chennai in India after a flood) Bible  is distributed free. What can the poor do with it?  It is kept in every room of many hotels! May be the modern day terrorists and serial killers can  learn a lesson or two from the OT practices like stoning adulterous women, raping, incest, beheading, massacring and annihilating entire opposition territory. This book needs to be banned. How many wars it has inspired! How many millions have been put to death for its cross? How many Jews were gassed!
