Penn & Teller On the Bible

My beliefs on religion are pretty out in the open, but somehow I can never find a way to articulate myself as well as Penn & Teller. Snide as they tend to be, sometimes they just it the nail right on the head.

The topic discussed in the video is one of the most troubling for Christians. They don't see it as the true paradox that it is. See, most "modern" Christians aren't literalists when it comes to the Bible; they see it more as a guiding tool than anything else.

Yet, they also state that The Bible is the true word of God. I mean, who would take it literally, if judged on the scriptures shown in the video? But doesn't the Bible also say that every word in it is true? Weird.
