I used to think

my favorite Bible story was the one about God sending two bears to eat 42 children, cuz they made fun of a bald guy, (2 Kings 2:23) BUT, I have a new favorite.

That would be Joshua 10:13, where God stopped the sun, so his people could slaughter more heathens.
So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day.

BUT, that story, like the rest of the Bible, was written before the pesky 'thang' called SCIENCE.
You see, the sun doesn't orbit around the earth, like ancient man (Bible authors) thought. The earth ROTATES, at about 1000 mph.
SO, for the sun to stand still, the earth would have to stop rotating. Get it?
The oceans would slosh over, the momentum would knock over trees, etc, as the planet goes from
 1000 mph, to ZERO. Can you imagine? Ancient man couldn't, SO, another Bible story was born.
AND, Christians claim the 'astronauts' found that earth is 'missing' a day. REALLY?
But, like Noah, Jonah, Adam and Eve etc, it makes a great myth, story, and I'm the bad guy for saying, IMPOSSIBLE!

You could be excused for believing these myths in the 16th century, but NOT in the 21st.
You have a functioning brain, maybe, OR you may be a FOXSheep.

Again, nothing against spirituality, BUT, a 'literal' Bible, and Pubs promises? C'mon, use your brain.

I'm just tired of 'pretending' that these myths are REAL, and the 'believers' vote as a bloc, giving us A-holes like Trump. RU kidding?
Just another reason why religion isn't 'harmless'.
