Intrinsic flaws of Christianity

Christianity is a religion in
which events are claimed to have occured but which can
never be proved. Those who practice it live by different
morals than are preached by the most holy texts. It is an
institution in which the most holy scripture is contradictory,
and wherein the supreme being, by the very definition,
cannot exist. Christianity is, therefore, a fundamentally
flawed religion. According to the Bible, events have
occured which are even more miraculous than the
resurection of Jesus Christ. Events such as the stopping of
the sun by Joshua (Joshua 10:12-14), the reversal of the
sun\'s course by Isaiah (Isaiah 38:7-8) , the resurrection of
the saints, and their subsequent appearance to many
(Matthew 27:52-53) were witnessed by thousands of
people. The stopping and reversal of the sun would have
been visible worldwide. The idea that people could have
witnessed these events without having been amazed by
them is, quite simply, ludicrous. Other cultures having
witnessed this would certainly have offered their own
explanations in keeping with their own cultural and religious
beliefs. Surely a society existing at the time would have
documented this miraculous event. Yet nowhere have such
works been found. In the instance of the resurrection of the
saints, Matthew is the only person to mention this
occurence in the Bible. Surely other first-century Christians
would have used this as further proof of Jesus\' divinty. It
would fall to reason that Paul and the gospels would have
mentioned it. This is not, however, the case. Nowhere else
in the Bible is this mentioned or even hinted at. These
events are then, at best, highly unlikely to have occured.
The fact that Matthew is alone in writing of the resurrection
of the saints leads us to believe that certain writers of the
Bible had differing views on christianity. The christian Bible
is highly contradictory, not just to modern day christian
beliefs, but in and of itself. Today\'s society is of the belief
that all people are created equal, and Christians submit that
their god is of the same belief. Modern Christians believe
that their god loves everyone, and that they are all equal.
However, after Adam and Eve had eaten from the tree
forbidden by god, this deity said to Eve "I will intensify the
pangs of your childbearing; in pain shall you bring forth
children. Yet your urge shall be for your husband, and he
shall be your master." (Genesis 3:16). This tells us that,
according to the Christian religion, women shall naturally be
dominated by men. This kind of behavior is not conducive
to a being who believes in inherent equality. Women are
repeadtedly treated as objects and told to be submissive in
the Bible. "According to the rule observed in all the
assemblies of believers, women should keep silent in such
gatherings. Rather, as the law indicates, submissiveness is
indicated for them. If they want to learn anything, they
should ask their husbands at home. It is a disgrace when a
woman speaks in the assembly." (1 Corinthians 14:34-35).
"Man was not made from woman but woman from man.
Neither was man created for woman but woman for man.
For this reason, a woman ought to have a sign of
submission on her head." (1 Corinthians 11:8-10). The
Bible also permits bondage. "Slaves, male and female, you
may indeed possess, provided you buy them from among
neighboring the nations. You may also buy them from
among the aliens who reside with you and from their
children who are born and raised in their land. Such slaves
you may own as chattels, and leave to your sons as their
hereditary property, making them perpetual slaves."
(Leviticus 25:44-46). This same Bible gives laws on the
punishment of slaves. "When a man strikes his slave with a
rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be
punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two,
he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own
property." (Exodus 21:20-21) We find further examples of
prejudice in Deuteronomy. In the Bible, it is stated that "No
one whose testicles have been crushed or whose penis has
been cut off may be admitted into the community of the
Lord. No child of an incestuous or adulterous union may be
admitted into the community of the Lord, nor any
descendant of his even to the tenth generation."
(Deuteronomy 23:2-3). Consider the first statement. If a
faithful Christian were to get in an automobile accident with
a resulting injury to his genitals, he would not be admitted
into Heaven. The second statement is even more ridiculous
than the first. An innocent child, through no fault of its own,
is born a bastard. He
