Now before I even get into this, I'm not directing this towards all Christians. I fully accept that there are Christians out there who are open-minded, sensible, kind and not ignorant. This is coming from a slightly atheistic standpoint (though sometimes I consider myself to be a Taoist or Buddhist.)
I'm really sucked into the religious part of YouTube. It's super enlightening if you subscribe to and watch intelligent and open-minded people. But there are always the not-so-intelligent-bordering-on-idiotic-let-alone-smart-enough-to-be-open-minded people, and they do give me a good laugh sometimes.
Exhibit A: I saw a comment regarding homosexuality, and it said something along the lines of "homosexuality is wrong, it's a sin, and gays will go to Hell for it." Obviously I'm opposed to homophobia, period, but as I read on, someone had replied and stated that they were atheistic and then proceeded to ask what sort of evidence or proof they had to back up that fact. And his reply was that it was in the Bible.
If you don't see how stupid that answer was, read on. And even if you do, humor me.
You don't use the Bible to prove to a freaking atheist that this or that is wrong or right. Okay, you're speaking to someone WHO DOESN'T BELIEVE IN THE BIBLE to look to to the Bible for proof. And even further, proof is SCIENTIFIC. Science involves experiment, tests, surveys, FACTS.
I hate to say this, but most Christian people HAVEN'T EVEN READ THE ENTIRE BIBLE (And I'm not even blaming them for this. It's just that, you'd think they'd have read the bible fifteen times over since they use it in arguments so much). Knowing many Christians myself (most of them sensible to a degree), I am SURE that this is true. Most people who follow Christianity are given certain passages and excerpts to read, often taken out of context,
