By Robert G. Ingersoll
The phrases 'blasphemy', 'evil' and 'pagan' have been hurled at Robert Ingersoll by means of the prepared Christian Church from the instant he made his first announcement from the pulpit. And, inspite of their unanimous rejection, his phrases live to tell the tale via this present day. As proven during this textual content his prose used to be terse, biting, slicing and just a little smug for he felt it was once his objective to deliver the sacred scriptures into the glare of a extra life like realm. Deemed as being written hundreds of thousands of years after the very fact, he observed the Bible as being not anything greater than an exhaggerated sequence of people stories that have been passed down through a handful of people that, for his or her personal cohesion and value, self-proclaimed themselves as being 'God's selected ones'. whereas Mr. Ingersoll deals no medical facts that his statements have validity (other than basic good judgment) he asks the questions that experience caused the doubt and anger that religionists have repressed in the course of the centuries.

Can we believe that Christ raised the dead? A widow living in Nain is following the body of her son to the tomb. Christ halts the funeral procession and raises the young man from the dead and gives him back to the arms of his mother. This young man disappears. He is never heard of again. No one takes the slightest interest in the man who returned from the realm of death. Luke is the only one who tells the story. Maybe Matthew, Mark and John never heard of it, or did not believe it and so failed to record it.
God was the immediate governor of the world. If the people were good, God sent seed time and harvest; but if they were bad he sent flood and hail, frost and famine. If anything wonderful happened it was exaggerated until it became a miracle.

No miracle ever was performed. No intelligent, honest man ever pretended to perform a miracle, and never will.
Then he tried again -- took them into Palestine and had them governed by Judges. This, too, was a failure -- no schools, no Bible. Then he tried kings, and the kings were mostly idolaters. Then the chosen people were conquered and carried into captivity by the Babylonians. Another failure. Then they returned, and Jehovah tried prophets -- howlers and wailers -- but the people grew worse and worse. No schools, no sciences, no arts, no commerce. Then Jehovah took upon himself flesh, was born of a woman, and lived among the people that he had been trying to civilize for several thousand years.
