An Open Letter to the Atheist Trolls

Dear Atheist Trolls,

While I recognize that your stunning intellect has allowed you to detect the seemingly glaring flaws in the Scriptures, after nearly two thousand years with the New Testament, and up to fourteen hundred more for the Old Testament, we have addressed these issues ad nauseum. Any criticism that you can discover in a translation, (and that without devoting years of study to it), has already been rebutted. Please consider that the skeptics before you, while not approaching your intellectual development (nor your wit or good manners), may have brought these to our attention.

Please find something new to talk about.

Sincerely,

Me.

P.S. If I read one more person saying, "There are two contradictory creation stories..." I'm going to TYPE IN ALL CAPS.

That's what comments are for -- people have to get used to the idea that they can click on that kind of post and see the blogger get pwned. (It has happened to me a couple times, so I know what you're talking about.)

In the atheists' defense, when you think of something as a work of fiction, snark is totally appropriate even when the series' true fans can explain to you how it's actually totally canonical that the Hellmouth prevents people in Sunnydale from noticing how many people get exsanguinated weekly.

Snark I don't mind (I am reading the Heathen Reads the Bible blog, after all). People presenting fallacies as truth when 20 seconds worth of Googling would debunk it, that's what's annoying.

I thought you were referring to the heathen reads the bible blog.
