Definition of Christians – Those who believe in Christian Mythology.
Like those who believed in Greek Mythology, Christians have a firm belief in an unfounded or false notion for which there is no proof.
Definition of bible – The sacred scriptures of Christians comprising the Old Testament and the New Testament.
The Bible has been altered, edited and revised hundreds of times.
According to those who believe the Christian myth, the “real” Bible consists of 39 books of the Hebrew Scriptures, called the Old Testament, and 27 books of the Christian Greek Scriptures, called the New Testament. Christians also believe their Bible was inspired by a god and written by some 40 men over the course of 1,600 years. But to set the record straight, there is no “original” Bible and the books in the Bible have been altered, edited and revised hundreds of times.
The first list of books that matches a Protestant Bible cannot be found anywhere in history prior to the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century. And even then, Protestant Reformers often did not include all of the books Protestants use.
For example, Martin Luther initially doubted the canonical status of Hebrews, James, Jude, and Revelation. And while Luther had much praise for the Old Testament deuterocanonical book Judith (which he did not believe to be inspired by God, but which he thought Christians should read), he often criticized other biblical books found in Protestant Old Testaments including Esther and Jonah. The famous Swiss Reformer Ulrich Zwingli doubted that Revelation belonged in the New Testament. John Calvin, who never wrote a commentary on Revelation, also had concerns over its canonical status.
Prior to the Reformation, all Christian biblical canons either excluded books from the Old Testament that Protestants (and Catholics, and Orthodox) consider inspired, like Esther—-or, they excluded some of the 27 New Testament books that Protestants (and Catholics, and Orthodox) consider inspired, like 2 Peter, Hebrews, James, Jude, and Revelation—-or, they included some or all of the 7 deuterocanonical books that Catholics (and Orthodox) include in their Bibles. There are no Bibles (nor lists of biblical books) that have the complete 27 New Testament books and all 39 Old Testament books in Protestant Bibles, but which exclude the 7 deuterocanonicals.
The stories in the Bible are retellings of far more ancient stories.
Everything in the christian bible was taken from Ancient Pagan Texts that pre-dated it by thousands of years. This has been proven time and time again, and is becoming harder and harder for Christians to deny. By examining various Ancient Pagan Texts and comparing the epics and stories within with the bible, it can be clearly seen how the bible has simply copied these texts, only changing a few minor details such as the names of people or places.
Of course, there is one question that is bound to arise. How can we be certain that Christianity copied from the Pagans, and not the other way around? Well, first, the Pagan Texts predated the christian Texts by some good 1000 years. This rules out any possibility of the Pagan’s having copied from the Christians. Even in the bible, it states that Christianity came long after Paganism.
One good example of this copying of Text is the story of “Noah’s Ark”. A very similar epic appeared some thousands of years before the bible in Ancient Sumeria. Only, in the Ancient Sumerian Epic, Enki (The God of Science and Engineering) appeared to Ziusudra and instructed him to build a boat that would be able to withstand a large wave of water, as some of the other Gods had been planning to let humanity suffer in the coming deluge. Enki also instructed Ziusudra to take onto the boat the “seeds of life”, so that after the flood, life could be sustained on earth once again.
This epic appeared thousands of years before “Noah’s Ark” of the bible.
There are tons of other examples. Everything in the bible, even down to the “star characters” has it’s Pagan match and was stolen from Pagan Texts.

Keret’s family tragedies and illness are comparable with the story of Job. In the original tale, “Satan” never even entered into the picture. Here, Jewish Jehova replaces El”

Having irrational thoughts and beliefs about talking plants and animals, people walking on water and living inside animals, virgin births, resurrections and living dead, bearded men constantly watching you, sky wizards that grant wishes if you beg them enough, devils that will tempt and torture you in eternal hellfires if you don’t do what a magical book tells you, are signs and symptoms of serious and debilitating mental illness. Not only are these thought styles in error, they’re intensely uncomfortable to the person who uses them–or should we say suffers from them, because no one would deliberately choose to have these anxiety-producing thoughts. When these thoughts emerge in words and deeds, the damage can be even worse. deitydisorder.org
Examples of serious mental illness include major depressive disorder, deity disorder/schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. https://www.psychiatry.org/patients-families/what-is-mental-illness
Deity Disorder is the prototypical psychotic disorder. Not only is it the most common psychosis, but Deity Disorder tends to involve abnormalities in all five of the emphasized symptom domains: hallucinations, delusions, disorganized thinking and speech (Speaking in Tongues), grossly disorganized or abnormal motor behavior (Dancing Diaspora), and negative symptoms. Like the DSM-5 neurodevelopmental disorders, Deity Disorder is viewed as a neuropsychiatric disorder with complex genetics and a clinical course that tends to begin during a predictable stage of indoctrination by a cult or a religious organization. Whereas the neurodevelopmental disorders tend to begin during childhood, symptoms of Deity Disorder tend to reliably develop during late adolescence and early adulthood. deitydisorder.org
