The Bible is clearly flawed. Very obvious stories such as the flood simply did not happen as claimed. The high handed claims that it sets some user high standard for morality don't stand up to the slightest scrutiny. I would challenge anyone to show me the value of the tale of Lott and Sodom and Gomorrah. Curiosity = instant death but incestuous rape is allowed without a flicker of criticism from this alleged virtuous god? And that would be the tip of a humongous iceberg.
Then there are ridiculous things like the prescribed cure for leprosy, idiotic claims about the number of legs insects have, total ignorance of the world outside of a relatively small patch of the middle east and edges of Africa/Asia, not to mention ignorance about stuff going on outside of the atmosphere and the location of earth within it.
No wonder the church tried to hard to prevent the average Joe from being able to read it for themselves and enforced blasphemy laws on anyone who questioned it. Once you start to pick at the bullshit for what it is, the whole thing unravels before your eyes. The only miracle I see in the bible is that so many people still think so highly of it and even revere it.
