This is my “closing argument”—so to speak—when concerning Christianity. Can we definitively “prove” without a doubt that Christianity is a false doctrine? Probably not. But can we narrow the probability of it being a true doctrine? Yes.
All of Christianity, every single teeny tiny thing that Christianity has stemmed from, comes back to one point. Every single sin, every single death, god sending himself down to issue the redemption challenge, every kitten and child drown in the great flood, every person condemned eternally to hell, every person of another faith stoned to death (and also every religious person of the same faith who was simply picking up sticks on the Sabbath, who was stoned to death), every misfortune in the world, every disease ever to exist, the very reason both the Old and New Testaments were written, the reason for prayer, the reason to sit in church every Sunday, and yes (as I can not epitomize this enough) EVERY SINGLE THING that has to do with Christianity; whether killing in the Old Testament or saving in the New Testament—EVERYTHING!—comes down to one action: That a woman, who was deceived by a talking snake, ate a piece of fruit. That’s all. That’s the reason for all of this. It’s the reason we wear clothes, the reason we fight, the reason we feel pain (not only in child birth, but all pain), the reason we must work for a living, the reason we sin, and yes, the very reason we all die. A woman listened to the words of a snake and ate a piece of fruit.
So if your child dies, if you get your leg crushed in an earthquake, if your animal dies of some obscure disease, if your son rapes the neighbors daughter, Charles Manson, Ted Bundy, John Gacy, Hitler, and all other deplorable things… these are merely the CONSEQUENCE! OF A WOMAN! WHO LISTENED TO A TALKING SNAKE! AND DECIDED TO EAT A PIECE OF FRUIT! It all stems from this one action.
Is this “proof” definitive, absolute, conclusive, et cetera enough to say that Christianity is one big fat lie? Sadly, no, it is not (somehow). But it is up to you to decide. Do you believe, and I mean truly believe as a true fact, that everything horrible in the world that has EVER happened, is the direct result of a woman being deceived by a talking snake? If you do not believe this, you are not a true Christian. And if you do believe this… what a horrible god to follow.
