What Are Atheists’ Favorite Bible Verses? June 9, 2014

What Are Atheists’ Favorite Bible Verses?

Valerie Tarico asked a number of atheists what their favorite Bible verse was — without snark — and she compiled the responses at AlterNet.

Here’s just one example:

1 Corinthians 13.11: “When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.” This phrase speaks to me. Many of us were indoctrinated as children with lies. These lies included things like Santa Claus, spirits, gods, monsters under the bed, boogie men, etcetera. As we grow older we are supposed to dump these myths. It’s ironic that the Bible endorses this wisdom.

— David Silverman, President, American Atheists

My own response is included in the mix.
