Argument from amazon reviews

Now if the bible was the word of a sky daddy wouldnt it have 5 stars on amazon and glowing reviews? Well no, it actually has less than 4 stars. If you dont believe me click here.

Here are some of the reviews:

This book should never be left where it could fall into the hands of children. Recurrent themes of bloody violence, murder, racism, incest and rape are dealt with extremely irresponsibly. Horrific events are presented as justified by circumstances and as solutions to petty wrongs.

Constant repetition yet also hypocracy of previous chapters within the same sentance
It's almost as if someone wrote this is some kind of a joke!

First of all there seems to be a million different versions of The Bible to choose from, so settling down on just one is a little difficult. How would I know which one is the best? Eenie-meenie-miney-moe saves the day.

The second half of the book introduces some new characters, most importantly Jesus Christ who seems to be based on Buddha. Here's a confusing part that is never really clarified. Jesus is the son of Mary and Joseph, but he is also referred to as the son of God. Which is it?

I think we get the idea.

Interesting Mike... it seems that you've now resorted to using comments from people that are even less informed than you....

How are you a critical thinker, a scientist and a bible scholar all in one? It seems to me that the BIBLE may need some revising. Check my blog and tell me what you think.

What do you like about Dawkins? Do you like to tear into his arguments to attack them for their logical fallacies as you see them??

Mike, I read those reviews, they are all writin by misinformed retards who have no business commenting on an ancient piece of literature as if it was some sort of novel.

Then again, it did get less that four stars.

Well, I guess its apostasy for me!

You're using Amazon reviews for arguments?!

HAHA!

Mikey, you're 'arguments' get dumber and dumber as the weeks go on. This is the same source that has such comments as:

This book was boring; it needs werewolves and lesbians or something.

Yep, so being boring means anything in real life. I guess those theoretical physics books are wrong because they are boring. Come back when you have some real arguments that are not written by stupid people like you.

Mikey's blog is boring. I don't find anything intelligent there. Surely if atheism was true, there would be some sign of it amongst the proponents.

Therefore, atheism is not true.

Wow! Those arguments work so easily!

Mike is Wright said...

but nobody says my blog is the word of a skydaddy.

Nick said...

Oh. So arguments can be boring and valid?

Hey mike-this bible happened to get good reviews on Amazon.Does this prove the bible was god-inspired to you?
