You're full of spit!
You see, this is the crux of the matter. (Pun intended.) You have churches all over the world telling non-Jews stories that make the Jews look really bad. In fact, the stories make the Jews look like evil people that you could feel justified in hating. This is a really big problem, and has led to a lot of the anti-Semitism we see in the world. The same thing happens in the Muslim world. They also spread stories that make the Jews look bad with the same results: hatred of Jews. Of course, most Jews (and more and more Gentiles) reject these stories as propaganda from enemies, but unfortunately, many religious people accept this all as "the word of the Lord", even though there is no proof at all (and in fact, there is much proof to show that the Jews were not the way they are depicted in these stories).
It's really weird that we live in a world where the people who brought us the Ten Commandments and sayings like, "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you", are demonized by two of the largest religions in the world. I deal with this subject in my book and show how the Bible actually predicts this situation. For instance, in the very early days of Judaism, Abraham had two sons, Ishmael and Isaac. They were fighting over their inheritance which included the land of Israel. Then Isaac has two sons, twins, who were fighting even in the womb (Esau and Jacob). They also fight over their fathers inheritance.
Jewish teachings tell us that Ishmael was the ancestor of the Arabs (who became the Muslims) and Esau was the ancestor of the Romans (who became the European Christians). Then the Rabbis look deeply into the story line to show how a lot of what goes on between these groups even today was predicted by the stories. (In other words, when you see two of these characters interacting, it is all symbolic of how their descendants will interact.) This explains how you have a world where this tiny tribe of Israel is the focus of hatred by a large percentage of the billions of people on the earth.
Here is where I think many atheists miss the point. We can discuss whether or not God exists for ever, but there is a lot more in Bible that relates to the world as it is, that deserves discussion. It could very well be that whoever wrote the Bible was not God, but a person who came back from the future, or some type of alien or advanced being, or group of beings. In any case, I think it is narrow minded to assume that their are no hidden meanings behind what is written in this prominent book.
As for me, I always loved the way the Beatles hid all kinds of clues in their albums. You could play songs backwards and hear things. You could look at the pictures and see Paul wearing a black rose, or walking barefoot in the street, and these would be clues that he was actually dead. (Of course, this was the Beatles goofing on the world.) But what I love about the Bible is that it is like the ultimate Beatle album. It is just chock full of clues about everything from politics to space aliens. For instance, I have recently heard an interpretation that the snake in the garden (Satan) was symbolic of an advanced civilization that basically gave ancient man the knowledge that we see in ancient Egypt and Greece. Therefore, "God" would be either the concept of preserving the pure genetic lines of the humans, as opposed to those who were impregnated by the aliens represented by the snake...or He could represent another group of aliens. Of course, when you get into this stuff it gets hard to prove, but I did hear one presentation that made a good case using all kinds of ancient mythology to show that all of it is about a time thousands of years ago when aliens came to this planet and began what we call history.
