Religion & History


The Dark Bible
  The Bible describes God as wrathful, jealous and scatological. These quotes show the pornographic, atrocious, and questionable moral verses from the KJV Bible.


Should we admire Jesus?
  Does the character Jesus in the Gospels merit the admiration that so many have bestowed upon him? The Bible's own words throw doubt on the workable morality of the alleged Jesus "the Christ."


Did a historical Jesus exist?
  Did a historical Jesus actually live? All accounts of him come from hearsay writings, non-contemporary sources, forgeries, and beliefs. No good evidence exists for the god-man.

History to consider
  U.S. currency originally never used the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST." The original Pledge of Allegiance never mentioned "God." How the Christians stole Christmas and Easter, and more.
