Skeptic's Annotated Bible

This Freethought Ring Website is designed as an anti-fundamentalist version of the King James Bible. Written by a disaffected Christian, this hypertext version of the complete King James text highlights those passages the author contends are embarrassing to Bible-believers, specifically those numerous passages which involve "absurdities, contradictions, violence, sex, insults to women, injustices, bad language or false prophecies." The highlighting is color-coded for easy identification, and a frame provides running commentary explaining the skeptical response. One can also access specific sections of the text by the particular categories listed above. While some might take issue with the combative tone of this evangelical skeptic, this is a highly useful resource for confronting the mass of biblical evidence that challenges any literalist approach to this central text of Western literature and religious thought.
