where Bob draws the line between hocum and truth?
Was JEsus the Messiah? The bible claims it, but Bob thinks that some of the bible is obviously hocum.
Can a man live again after brain death? In heaven (does it exist?)
Its easier just to say all the bible is true, even if its patently not.
But once you unleash the "allegory" idea, where do you stop?
Maybe god is also bunkum? that makes a lot of sense to me.
Zombie Jesus who sort of came back from the dead...
Away in a graveyard, a stone overhead
The zombie lord Jesus is raised from the dead
The bones and the corpses are at his command
And rise like their master to swarm o'er the land!
The women are screaming, then running away
Poor Mary and Martha are gnawed where they lay
I fear thee, lord Jesus, your curséd undeath
With worms in your bowels and rot on your breath.
Have mercy, lord Jesus, don't eat me today
Next year I'll be bigger, I promise! I pray
Some shaman or rabbi or priestess or such
Will stake you and save us from your deadly touch.
I know Bible literalists apologists have their explanations, but they are ultimately just band aids over bull sh!t.
