Bible study: (1) A detailed study of the Bible for the purposes of supporting one’s predetermined faith. (2) Mining the good book for random bits that coincide with what you already believe, and ignoring anything that disagrees (3) A close reading of a bronze age collection of contradictory myths used to support things that science and common sense say are impossible; see Faith.
Atheist Bible Study: (1) A reading of the bible to see what it actually contains with as few preconceptions as possible. (2) A search for the truth. (3) Kicking the Bible’s ass so you don’t have to.
I am an atheist living in Bismarck, North Dakota. I live modestly in a great neighborhood. I like my neighbors, adore my son, and worship my wife. I am the happiest person I know. I wouldn’t trade my life for anyone’s. I enjoy being me. I would enjoy being a richer me, but certainly not with the sacrifices my family life would take. I am honest and try hard to do the right thing. I shovel my neighbors sidewalks and clean their gutters. I dig out their cars buried by snowplow and help rake their lawns in the fall. We have them over for supper regularly, and I enjoy their company. Fundamentalist Christians, observant Jews, and lapsed believers; I like them all. I give to charity and believe we have a duty to others. I consider myself a good person and good citizen and try to impart these values to my son.
And I do not believe!!
