The problems with the Bible that New Testament scholar Bart Ehrman discussed in his bestseller Misquoting Jesus—and on The Daily Show with John Stewart, NPR, and Dateline NBC, among others—are expanded upon exponentially in his latest book: Jesus, Interrupted. This New York Times bestseller reveals how books in the Bible were actually forged by later authors, and that the New Testament itself is riddled with contradictory claims about Jesus—information that scholars know… but the general public does not. If you enjoy the work of Elaine Pagels, Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan, and John Shelby Spong, you’ll find much to ponder in Jesus, Interrupted.

Seattle PI

Spong does not believe in unprovable historical stories, fairy tales, gospels written by Nazarene fishermen who didn't know Greek much less write it, and he most definitely does not think that if Jesus were to come back today, he would recognize anything the fundamentalists have been saying about...

If you believe the Bible literally, Jesus prays in John, “For you alone are God.” Also, when Jesus is arguing with the Pharisees (Chapter 10, I think) who said he made himself to be God, Jesus pretty much denies it by quoting a passage in the Hebrew Bible that refers to humans as gods.

And while atheists challenge this claim by pointing to the numerous contradictions in the Bible, even relatively few of us dispute that the text we have is the text as it was originally written.

So, if killing a rape baby inside the womb and out of it is the same, and that if that baby has the same worth in both cases, then neither should be unjust killing and it should be legal to kill a 5 year old who was created through rape, yeah?.
