What a Fucktard

Many of you may remember that long ago I had a throwdown with an apologist from my home state of Alabama about Vestigial Organs.

The same dumbass, Kyle Butt, appeared in a Youtube video I recently stumbled across. For all those who do not live in the South, let me assure you that most of us are not mentally retarded. Nor does the vast majority of Alabama, or the South in general, have such a stereotypical accent.

In the video, Butt-fuck tries to tell us that faith isn't really belief without evidence, it is belief because of evidence. That's funny, because it wasn't to the author of Hebrews: Hebrews 11:1 says, "Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." Does that sound like the author was trying to put forth an evidence based worldview to you?

Kyle then tries to claim that the divinity of the Bible can be proven because it is consistent. Did Kyle overlook Matthew 26:29, in which Jesus says that he will not drink of the fruit of the vine until he has come in his father's kingdom , and Matt. 27:34, in which Jesus drinks from a sponge filled with wine while on the cross? By the way, if you want to see this contradiction, you will have to use the NIV rather than the KJV (which says Jesus drank vinegar from the sponge). You see, the KJV was translated from a very erroneous manuscript which contained many scribal changes - ie, places where man saw fit to alter the "Holy Word of God" to get around embarrassing contradictions such as the one mentioned.

Apparently he debated Dan Barker recently. I haven't listened to much of it yet. You can get the audio here:

Kyle Butt!
Oh the irony.

I can fully appreciate your chagrin at having to share the planet with the likes of this Biblebot.

Sometimes I actually wish that the Rapture was true and that all of these people were snatched away in the twinkling of an eye!

btw; I'm reading HOW TO PROFIT FROM THE COMING RAPTURE, Getting Ahead When You're Left Behind by Steve and Evie Levy.
It's "the investment guide that the Antichrist doesn't want you to read"..hilarious!

It helps to laugh about it because all of them Slingblade fellers ain't gonna change their minds no-how.

Note: If you're going to use someone else's book to refute their faith, read it correctly.

In both the KJV and NIV translations of Matt.27:34, Jesus refuses to drink the wine/vinegar. And it hardly makes sense that translaters of the KJV would seek to hide an "embarassing contradiction" - which isn't a contradiction anyway, since He doesn't drink what He's offered in either version regardless of its description (purely semantic) - only to have the "contradiction" remain in the more recent NIV.

Jesus does taste the wine before refusing it.

"And it hardly makes sense that translaters of the KJV would seek to hide an 'embarassing contradiction'"

It wasn't the translators, it was the scribes copying the manuscripts.
