      over 450 versions of the bible.. 50 in english.. always commissioned and paid for by wealthy.. ie king james.. all commissioned to be inline with their version of what the bible should say.. the wealthy and powerful learned early that the bible was a powerful book because it could cause rational people to believe without question.. and easily controlled.. it is in the bible therefore it is from gods mouth..

      throw that book out or send it back to hell amigo.. then turn to god and let him guide you the rest of the way through life… surely you know the difference between right and wrong by now… you will find a good friend who will not lie to you.. i promise you that.. but you gotta listen.. or the words will just fall on deaf ears.. amen

    “Top Ten Signs You’re a Fundamentalist Christian
    10 – You vigorously deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions, but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of yours.
    9 – You feel insulted and “dehumanized” when scientists say that people evolved from other life forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim that we were created from dirt.
    8 – You laugh at polytheists, but you have no problem believing in a Triune God.
    7 – Your face turns purple when you hear of the “atrocities” attributed to Allah, but you don’t even flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in “Exodus” and ordered the elimination of entire ethnic groups in “Joshua” including women, children, and trees!
    6 – You laugh at Hindu beliefs that deify humans, and Greek claims about gods sleeping with women, but you have no problem believing that the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, who then gave birth to a man-god who got killed, came back to life and then ascended into the sky.
    5 – You are willing to spend your life looking for little loopholes in the scientifically established age of Earth (few billion years), but you find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by Bronze Age tribesmen sitting in their tents and guessing that Earth is a few generations old.
    4 – You believe that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share your beliefs — though excluding those in all rival sects – will spend Eternity in an infinite Hell of Suffering. And yet consider your religion the most “tolerant” and “loving.”
    3 – While modern science, history, geology, biology, and physics have failed to convince you otherwise, some idiot rolling around on the floor speaking in “tongues” may be all the evidence you need to “prove” Christianity.
    2 – You define 0.01% as a “high success rate” when it comes to answered prayers. You consider that to be evidence that prayer works. And you think that the remaining 99.99% FAILURE was simply the will of God.
    1 – You actually know a lot less than many atheists and agnostics do about the Bible, Christianity, and church history – but still call yourself a Christian.”

    “THE PROBLEM WITH RELIGION IS EVERY TRUE BELIEVER HAS THEIR VERY OWN TRUE VERSION”

      I have strongly disagreed with many of your statements in the past. But today, some of the points you mentioned were correct based on my experience with Fundamentalist Christians, most notably
      fault- finding – having 80% of their doctrines are the errors and faults of others’ belief.
      self-righteousness to borrow your own phrase
      believing “that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share their beliefs — …. excluding those in all rival sects – will spend Eternity in an infinite Hell of Suffering.”

      However, I am not sure if we have the same definition of Christian Fundamentalists… Which is those who believe only on what is found in the Bible… I.e. or fundata in scriptura ( = founded on scriptures).

      In fact, you yourself said: “You actually know a lot less than many atheists and agnostics do about the Bible, Christianity, and church history – but still call yourself a Christian.”

      Are we on the same page?
