Moderates, chose your side.There are two types of Christians. The first type believes that the stories in the Bible are historically true, and have actually happened. These Christians are very common (especially in the USA, where they are the majority). These are the Christians that I (and most other Atheists) are especially trying to reach, because they often harm others with their believes.Moderates, chose your side. in Philosophical

The second type of Christians believe that the stories in the Bible (like Genesis) are not meant to be taken literally, and are simply parables or metaphors. These Christians are quite common, but to a much less degree than the other type of Christians. While these Christians are often not fundamentalists, they are quite annoying in their own way.
The reason these kind of Christians are so annoying is because they usually target Atheists instead of other Christians, even though they often agree more with Atheists than with other Christians. They accuse us of taking the Bible literally, and try to make us look just as ignora
Guess Abraham got luckyMaybe you've heard of Jephthah. He was a brave warrior who was asked to fight against the army of Ammon. But before we begin, let's take a look at what happened earlier:Guess Abraham got lucky in Introductions & Chapters

Then the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served the Baals and the Ashtoreths, the gods of Syria, the gods of Sidon, the gods of Moab, the gods of the people of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines; and they forsook the Lord and did not serve Him. So the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel; and He sold them into the hands of the Philistines and into the hands of the people of Ammon. From that year they harassed and oppressed the children of Israel for eighteen yearsall the children of Israel who were on the other side of the Jordan in the land of the Amorites, in Gilead. Moreover the people of Ammon crossed over the Jordan to fight against Judah also, against Benjamin, and against the house of Ephraim, so that Israel was severely distressed.(Judges 10:6-9)

Yahweh: John Marko just cheated on his girlfriend Janet with her friend Gale!
Gabriel: I see.
Yahweh: I'M GOING TO PUNISH THE SHIT OUT OF HIM!!!!
Gabriel: Just calm down lord! There's no need for punishment. That night, John and Gale got drunk, and they made love together. The next morning, they both regretted doing it, because they both knew the consequences this would have. The next day, John and Gale got the courage to tell Janet about it. Of course Janet was furious at them, but they eventually managed to convince her that it was all just a drunk mistake, and they were both very sorry about it. John promised Janet that it would never happen again, and that he seriously regretted what happened. Eventually, Janet accepted their apology, and they seem to have worked it all out. So why are you still you mad?
Yahweh: Because he cheated
Not THAT mysterious.Many times, when Atheists ask Theists questions regarding God's actions (or lack thereof), the Theists claim that God works in mysterious ways. According to them, we can't know God's reasons, because they are too complex for us to comprehend. Theists frequently use this argument, yet they make several mistakes.Not THAT mysterious. in Philosophical

Their first mistake is that, even though they claim that we can't understand God's reasons, they always have other ways to justify God's behavior. They may claim that God allowed some disaster to happen because the people affected by it were sinful, or they claim that God allows bad things to happen because he doesn't want to interfere with free will. In all these cases, the apologist is trying to give a reason for God's behavior, and therefor claims to know his reasons. If they actually believed that God's reasons can't be known, they wouldn't be using these arguments, and would instead stick with the ''mysterious ways'' argument. However, they don't, showing that wh
