I was reading my Bible and I thought of you guys. Im curious what you guys think, but reluctant to start another topic
1 Corinthians 1:18-29
 For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

 For it is written,
         "I WILL DESTROY THE WISDOM OF THE WISE,
         AND THE CLEVERNESS OF THE CLEVER I WILL SET ASIDE."

 Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?

 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.

 For indeed Jews ask for signs and Greeks search for wisdom;

but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness,

 but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

 For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble;

 but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong,

 and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are,

so that no man may boast before God.

I dont know why it changed colors
I'm guessing that you cut-n-pasted this in from another web page, rather than typing it in yourself. I looks like you pasted in the HTML markup as well as the text itself. Some browsers/applications will do that automatically.
Johnny's hints for HTML. If you use the Rich Text (the default) you can highlight the text that you have copy and pasted then click the T with the little x and it will disable the Rich Text on the highlighted/selected portion making it look uniform.
reads pretty much like the usual contradictory and circular arguments put forth by most believers. at its base what I get from it is "god" wants an ignorant and subservient flock of worshipers, but then that's pretty much my interpretation of the whole damn book.
Of course. They loved the glory days when translating the bible into a language that people could read was a crime. They knew that disclaimer verses like these wouldn't be enough to keep vast numbers of people from using their brains and calling the hoax out for what it is.
Sounds like the type of disclaimer I'd toss in if I knew I was writing something stupidly absurd.
Yeah, the people who wrote the bible did predict one thing correctly: smart people would eventually figure out that it's all bullshit.
indeed
Seriously, what are you trying to achieve quoting bible at atheists? Might as well quote a cook book, that might actually give us some useful information.
Anybody know a recipe for God A La Mode?
Some things do never change. And the desire for con men to have an ignorant and gullible audience to prey upon is as strong now as ever. Anytime I see a person or book claiming that ignorance is good and that knowledge is bad, I look for the catch.
There is no catch, the author simply requires dumb people to buy his bullshit.
