Religious zealots tell us that the Bible is proof of God.
This is just plain false. The bible is merely
an assertion that God exists, but provides no proof.
If it can be said that the Bible is the proof of God, then it can

On The Origin Of Species, is proof of evolution.
The Bible is an ancient novel chock-full of nudity, sex, murder, rape, genocide, patricide, fratricide, homicide, bestiality, seduction, drinking, cruelty, homosexuality, socialism, magic, witchcraft, wizardry, child and animal sacrifice, prostitution, swearing, lying, cheating, stealing, sexism, misogyny, adultery, polygamy, concubinage, superstition, idolatry, gambling, beatings, maimings, stabbings, testicle-crushing, and really bad morals. As if it didn't already contain enough bad* stuff to get it banned a thousand times over, the wretched book promotes slavery, telling you exactly who you can keep as slaves, and just how severely you can beat them. How cool is that?

Mix and match any or all of the above to taste.
