Comparing The Bible To Other Fiction

Christians almost always get into a tizzy when atheists compare their holy book to other works of fiction. It doesn’t matter what aspect is being compared, it is the comparison itself that seems to generate the outrage.

Usually when I compare the Bible to some other work of fiction, I am comparing a particular aspect of the books. For example that they both list real people and/or places. Like when I use the DeVinci Code for comparison. Sometimes, I will compare the Bible to Star Wars when talking about moral themes (to which Star Wars blows the Bible out of the water).

Another comparison I often make is on the fancifulness of the story with the Harry Potter series. Sometimes I will compare characters like Jesus and Superman. It isn’t always even a negative comparison either. Superman is a great guy. But it doesn’t matter. Religious believers still get angry.

My thought is that the Bible is fiction and when it is talked about in the same breath as other fictional stories and/or characters, it becomes all the more obvious just how fictional the Bible really is. This is why Christians hate when the Bible is compared to other works of fiction even if those comparisons are positive.

    Star Wars is far better than the Bible. Star Wars IV introduced flying penises (x-wing fighters), and The Empire Strikes Back has much more eating/digesting imagery than Jonah and the whale.

    Having been one of the few people on the planet who has actually read the Bible from cover to cover, many parts several times, I can say that I consider the Bible to be very poor literature. There’s a lot of crappy fiction out there and this is amongst the worst, the most boring. The Book of Mormon pretty much plagerizes the Bible and it is just as much of a snooze. The Quran is the same. Actually, most “scripture” is just hideous. What a happier humanity we’d have if people would skip this crap and read good fiction.

    MOSES NEVER EXISTED, EXODUS NEVER HAPPENED, scholars agree.

    I found your website after reading your examiner good article that Exodus never happened. Thanks for the good job. I just want to add a few more comments to support you and some references. You may be familiar with some of them, but I want to be sure you had them. Here it is:

    The main book of Judaism, called the Torah (the first 5 books of the Old Testament, “OT”) is filled with stories of a man called Moses, the story of Exodus and the persecution of Jews by an Egyptian king who allegedly enslaved them.

    The Torah is obvious mythology. The fact that it is fiction is obvious from Book 1, Page 1. The Earth is not 4000 years old. Cultures (unknown to the scribes) flourished much before. Written records and archeological evidence using carbon dating show man’s presence tens of thousands of years ago, probably over a 100,000 years ago. A million people cannot live in a vast desert (without water or food) in a hostile nation for 40 years–and leave no trace.

    The techniques of higher criticism showed that the Old Testament was weaved together out of four source documents and was produced much later than claimed.

    See “The Forgery of the Old Testament” by Joseph McCabe:

    http://www.infidels.org/library/historical/joseph_mccabe/religious_controversy/chapter_07.html

    Also see: “The age of Reason”, Thomas Paine, in which Paine labels the OT as “spurious.”

    Furthermore, archeological and historical evidence has proven Moses, Exodus, Abraham, Joshua, King David, etc. to be basically myths copied from African and Eastern/Middle Eastern cultures.

    For eg., according to Prof. Ze’ev Herzog who teaches in the Department of Archaeology and Ancient Near Eastern Studies at Tel Aviv University, in “Deconstructing the Walls of Jericho”, states as follows:

    “This is what archaeologists have learned from their excavations in the Land of Israel: the Israelites were never in Egypt, did not wander in the desert, did not conquer the land in a military campaign and did not pass it on to the 12 tribes of Israel. Perhaps even harder to swallow is the fact that the united monarchy of David and Solomon, which is described by the Bible as a regional power, was at most a small tribal kingdom. ….. Most of those who are engaged in scientific work in the interlocking spheres of the Bible, archaeology and the history of the Jewish people – and who once went into the field looking for proof to corroborate the Bible story – now agree that the historic events relating to the stages of the Jewish people’s emergence are radically different from what that story tells.” (in an article in the Jewish magazine Haaretz, as republished on):

    Book: The Laughing Jesus: Religious Lies and Gnostic Wisdom, by Timothy Freke and Peter Gandy.

    See:

    Ancient Egyptians, who kept one of the most detailed ancient historic details, make no mention of any Jews there or other historic events of any “Moses or any “Jew” slaves escaping, though they make mention of one Egyptian slave who once escaped and was caught. The Moses myth was copied from the African myth of Mises.

    The fact is there was no Abraham, nor Moses, nor any King David, no enslavement in Egypt, and no Exodus. All these stories are myths copied from prevalent Zorastrian, Egyptian (i.e. African) and other Eastern myths (such as Sargon & Mises/Manu myths, the Code of Hammurabi, etc.) prevalent around that time in the Near East and projected back in time. Moses never existed.

    Moses could not have parted the Red Sea, not only because it violates the laws of physics, and there was no Moses, but because there was no Red Sea to cross, since Egypt and Israel have a common land border!

    Since Moses never existed, Judaism and even the notion of a “Jew”, I believe, collapses like a house of cards.
