• Then were all screwed. "everyone"
  • There's no way to prove that it is or isn't, or which's all a matter of personal opinion and belief - no absolute truth...
  • To you, what if the Qu'ran is right? Also, to answer your question, "Whoops."
  • Then I'd rather go to hell, than go to heaven. Seeing as how I refuse to spend an eternity bending knee to some self-absorbed sicophant.
  • About what? Which Bible?
  • Which Bible? The Bible is not a statement or assertion. What do you mean when you ask what if it is right? Are you referring to some statement or assertion in the Bible? What do you mean by "right"? Do you mean "true"? If you are suggesting that the Bible is entirely/completely true without exception, then I would have to say either we have not read the same book or you aren't trying honestly to read it critically.
  • Well I suppose for this question we are setting reason aside and assuming temporarily that the bible does turn out to be right... I'd belong in hell. I refuse to obey someone who would create a world and allow such suffering to continue on while he had the power to stop it. By the way, too all the smart asses who nit-picked his question with responses like "which bible" etc, I think we both know that you knew what he was getting at. There is no need to be so damn literal about it.
  • You mean, about Jesus being God, and Jesus also being all about 100% forgiveness?
  • Oops yo...:)==(
  • You mean what if it's OK to kill babies if God orders you to? bashing babies against rocks (Hosea 13:16 & Psalms 137:9). Mass killings “all the living creatures of the city: men and women, young, and old, as well as oxen sheep, and asses” (Joshua 6). Bible also allows slavery, including selling your own daughter as a sex slave (Exodus 21:1-11) Exodus 3:21-22, 12:35-36 & Luke 19:29-34 all promote stealing. Joshua 2:4-6, Exodus 1:18-20 & 1 Kings 22:21-22 all support lying. No thank you, I'll just stick to the ethical lifestyle I have chosen.
  • Well that depends on whose interpretation turns out to be right. Some would say I am going to hell, others would just say I am going to rot in the ground (which is what I think will happen anyway).
  • It can't all be right, as there are internal contradictions.
  • I'll worry about that when I'm dead, if there's anything after. Beyond all the hubris and discrimination and vehemence attributed to the prominent need to glorify The Bible through uncertainty and fear, I'm sure God would want me to live my life to the fullest, and exploit everything He's given to me, within reason of course. And denouncing Jesus or the Bible is really nothing compared to killing in the name of God for example, or regressing that which He gave us to use, such as a mind to make my own path. I mean, what are you gonna do if The Bible is wrong?
  • It's "atheist", not "athiest". Do you mean, what if the Bible is right about the existence of a god? If that is the case, such a being, since it would be omniscient, would know that my atheism is the result of earnest seeking for truth. I don't think I have anything to apologize for.
  • Until such time as it is proven otherwise, I'll continue to believe that it is nothing more or less than a fantasy book
  • What if the Koran is right? What if Harry Potter is right? What if Scientology is right? You simply use your reason and make the best decision you can.
  • If I died and found out the Judeo-Christian version of God was reality, then I would inform Yahweh that he had not provided any concrete objective evidence to support a belief in his existence. After that Im sure my ass would get sent to hell.
  • Is your god so gullible that we can hedge our bets?
  • The reality's not, but I will entertain the thought. If it was right, then I guess I would make a feeble attempt to turn my life around. If I was already doomed to hell, then I wouldn't even try and I would continue to live my life the way I see fit for me to enjoy it.
  • Then we'll repent on our death beads.
  • Then we ought to kill disobedient children by throwing rocks at them.
  • God will forgive us.
  • Then I shouldn't have @#$%'d my sister! ;-)
  • You mean, the part that says that if you commit a mortal sin, then you're going to Hell when you die, unless you confess that mortal sin to a priest first?
  • well - i guess id have to take some guns with me and kill jesus.
  • **REDACTED**
  • There are many very different denominations of Christians who base their doctrines on the Bible. Some take a fundamentalist/literalist view of the Bible, others do not. To answer the question, I wanted to know if the asker was suggesting the the Bible is literally true, because my response to that kind of religious view being right would be very different from my response to other Christian beliefs being right. My point was that the question needed clarification, because not only are there multiple versions of the Bible, but also because the Bible is not an assertion. I agree with much of what is in the Bible and would consider it "right;" however, I certainly do not agree with a fundamentalist interpretation of the Bible. As it turns out, this clarification has proven relevant. In any event, I did not appreciate the "smart ass" comment.
