21 of my favourite absurd Bible verses

The Bible is a book of claims, not a book of facts. It is not the “word of God” because “God” didn’t write it, men did.

In this article, I point out 21 of my favorite absurdities in the supposedly flawless “word of God”, the Bible.

1. God creates light before the sun and stars

God spends a day making light before making trillions of stars. “He made the stars also.”, and almost as an afterthought, he makes the trillions of stars. Genesis 1:14-19

2. God gets tired and rested

God got tired and rested. Even God gets tired sometimes.

“And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made” Genesis 2:2

3. Adam names every animal on earth

Adam names every animal on earth. God makes the animals and parades them before Adam to see if any would strike his fancy. But none seem to have what it takes to please him. (Although he was tempted to go for the sheep.) After making the animals, God has Adam name them all. The naming of several million species must have kept Adam busy for a while.

“and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field” Genesis 2:18-20

4. Cain gets a wife from outta nowhere

Cain is worried after killing Abel and says, “Every one who finds me shall slay me.” This is a strange concern since there were only two other humans alive at the time — his parents! 4:14

“And Cain knew his wife.” Except the only woman on earth was Eve his mother. Genesis 4:17

5. Noah had three sons when he was 500 years old

When Noah was 500 years old, he had three sons. Genesis 5:32

6. God kills all living things because human imagination is evil

God decides to kill all living things because the human imagination is evil. Later (8:21), after he kills everything, he promises never to do it again because the human imagination is evil. Go figure. Generis 6:5

7. God repents that he made man

“And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart” Genesis 6:5

8. God kills everything to make the world less violent

God was angry because “the earth was filled with violence.” So he killed every living thing to make the world less violent. Genesis 6:11-13

9. 50, 000-millions of animals boarded Noah’s ark on the same day

All of the animals boarded the ark “in the selfsame day.” Genesis: 7:13-14

Noah, a 500 year old man told millions of animals onto the ark, or according to Christian apologists only 20, 000-50, 000. “However, this response requires creationists to believe that just 16,000 animals developed into billions of species in less than 4000 years” – RationalWiki
