Reviews - What do customers think about The Bible: The Devil's Book?
More research to do May 30, 2008
It would be great if this author were also to write books about The Talmud, The Zohar and the Koran. Would he use the same title?
Maybe he can also write a book about atheism, including Stalin and Mao (together good for 100 million deaths), would he use the same title?
Effective Arguements but lost my favor in the end Dec 23, 2006
The author makes an excellent arguement about the bible being the book of an angry and vengeful as well as cruel being , known as YHWH. He poses questions about Israelites ravishing whole entire nations for not worshiping Jehovah (YHWH). He also points out the problem with sacrifcing animals and humans for someone else's "sins". Shouldn't we all be accountable for our own errors?
I really felt I could identify with the author until midway through he poses the thought of there being a "master race" of people. That's when he lost me. In all of his attempts to debunk the bible due to cruelty and racism, the author himself turns into the very thing he tries to debunk. That's my opinion of it. Was a bit disappointed, but overall I'm still glad I purchased the book.
THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOK I HAVE EVER READ IN MY ENTIRE LIFE ! Apr 19, 2006
Very logically and methodically, the author sets out to prove how the philosophy of the so-called "Holy Bible" is the underlying cause of most of the strife in the world, and is truly the book of the devil himself !
In this "holy Book". is to be found direct orders from the tribal God, "Yahweh", to exterminate entire nations, people who had done nothing wrong, and give their country and their possessions to their murderers. "And thou shalt consume all the people which the LORD thy God shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity upon them..." Deuteronomy 7: 16 You read how Yahweh's followers execute this command to perform large-scale murder and robbery. They commit slaughter after slaughter. They exterminate town after town, region after region. Men, old people, woman and children: they kill everybody ! "...and they took the city. And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword." Joshua 6: 20-21 "And they smote all the souls that were therein with the edge of the sword, uterly destroying them: there was not any left to breathe..." Joshua 11: 11
"...but every man they smote with the edge of the sword, until they had destroyed them, neither left they any to breathe." Joshua 11: 14 You read how this Yahweh demands unconditional obedience and threatens his followers, in case they should be disloyal to him, to opress them in such a way that they will be compelled to eat their own children !!! See Deuteronomy 28: 52-57
You read that this Yahweh actually tests some of his followers in order to see if they are willing to slaughter their only son in honor of him when he commands them to do so. See Genesis 22
You read how this Yahweh takes pride in setting people against each other and in stirring up war among them: "And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and everone against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom." Isaiah 19: 2 You read how this Yahweh at the end of times will provoke an enormous war, which he intends to result in a colossal butchery. This tribal god actually gloats to himself at the very thought of masses of carrion eaters enjoying the numerous dead bodies scattered about ! See Exekiel 39: 17-20
You read how the Bible fortells that one day in the future this Yahweh will destroy this planet and all it's inhabitants. You read about the horrors that will happen then. And you get the impression that Yahweh is exulting over the atrocities that will be committed. See Isaiah 13: 4-18
This is just a start to the shocking revelations, no pun intended. With Christianity and Islam, branches of the original tree, the author goes even further.
Beyond that, the author shows how even Communism and National Socialism (Nazism), are members of the "Bible-Club", in which one exteminates one's percieved enemies without remorse for the "greater good".
One is left with the firm conviction that there is something very seriously wrong with the psyche of humans who would follow the teachings of a "deity" who openly announces that he intends to sow discord among them.
One is further left with the conclusion that most of the people on this earth are dangerous lunatics, who in one way or another are worshipping a being which in any normal and logical circumstance would be known as "the Devil."
The basic thesis this book proves, is that the greater part of the suffering of mankind, not all, can be traced directly to the specific origin of the doctrine of the "Holy Bible".
To put it another way, one can compare mankind with an ill person who resorts to the pills and injections of a doctor called Yahweh. The more pills he takes and the more injections he gets, so he hopes, the faster he will recover from his illness. But actually he doesn't recover at all. On the contrary, his health deteriorates more and more. For the true cause of his illness are those very pills and injections of doctor Yahweh. Those pills and injections are not medicines. They contain the very poison that makes him ill, and Yahweh is not a doctor at all -- in fact he is an evil-minded brute who enjoys tormenting and torturing his patients.
The author analyses the nature of this poisen. He further explains how the basic philosophy or "world view" of this poison has spread into most of the major religious and political philosophies of the world, and continue to wreak havoc to this very day !
