Honestly, I can't believe that being a credible Atheist means that I have to know more about religion than the entire damn congregations and clergies of the local Baptist, Lutheran, and Catholic churches combined. Not that this is a difficult challenge. Of course I'm grateful for the people who put up the Dark Bible, among many websites, to give me the down-and-dirty about the Scriptures, so that when I'm getting proselytized or just having a "rational" discussion about my beliefs, I can cut right to the heart of the conflict and inconsistency that riddles the Good Book.
I was once Born Again, and spent a few of my high school years studying all the "nice" parts of the Bible, so I know what I'm going to hear: However, one of the things that turned me off to religion was the firm admonishment against the study of anything that conflicted with the teachings of the Bible; namely, anything that had to do with science, especially evolution.
Once I started taking Anthropology courses, it became clear to me that the Bible, along with all religion, was contrived by man, so I just stopped paying attention to it all. I have too much other stuff to deal with without having to know a bunch of mythology and superstition.
You know, Christians like to get all butt-hurt when you reject their dogma, then turn around and ridicule your study of bones and rocks as folly. And, of course, the best thing to do is to avoid these conflicts in the first place, but religious study is going to take up a lot more space in my life, and those of my children, than I thought it would, and that's just really annoying.
