The Bible is relied upon as the word of God. The reason why this myth persists to the present day is perpetuated by the fact there are too few people who have actually read it.
Whether you attend a congregation of believers, or are a skeptic, I would bet my paycheck you have never read the Bible from cover to cover. The only way to eliminate ("illuminate" also works) ignorance is through knowledge.
The so-called "creation account" of the Bible is actually a reworded excerpt from earlier Sumarian texts, which themselves could be parts of earlier texts. By all means, do read Genesis, and read it all the way to the end.
Read how Moses' ancestors duped the Pharoahs with lies and walked away with huge wealth. Read how the entire faith is built upon an elderly man who had an infection in his foreskin, and after removing the foreskin, attributed the cure to God, who commanded all his offspring should also have the foreskin removed.
Read God's only promise (in Genesis) to Abraham and his descendents; that they will inherit (steal) the land of Canaan (Pheonicians) at all costs. This God commanded them to perform incest and pedophilia for building a huge army. Read how God killed those who spilled their own seed (masturbated). Read how Abraham's descendents lied to and slaughtered hundreds of millions of innocent people in the name of claiming the land of Canaan.
Read how Moses and his brother Aaron were the mightiest dark scorcerers of all time and how Moses eventually killed his own brother. Read how Moses claimed to be God, himself, and attacked the Egyptians with biological and chemical warfare using metaphysical powers. Read how the Egyptians ignorantly attacked themselves in proving their own metaphysical powers.
The problem with Christianity and all the Abrahamic religions is not the religions themselves, but all the people who don't take the time to read the books and see what they actually say. The more people who are armed with the facts, the quicker this nonsense will be eradicated.
It is annoying to hear skeptics complaining about the ignorance of the religions, when the real problem is the ignorance of the skeptics. Pick up a copy of the Bible (any version) and read it from cover to cover. Help those poor people who go to church and are told not to read their Bible, but to allow the clergy to read it for them.
By picking and choosing a sentence and paragraph here and adding it to a sentence and paragraph there, they preach all kinds of things not in the Bible and ignore the horrific facts that are there.
The Bible has become a tool for magic of itself. People use the Bible to scry into the future, divine their fortunes, enslave others to whatever beliefs the clergy might hold. It is used like a Ouija board, where they ask a question and then open the book and read a sentence as though it was an answer from God. The Bible is used by numerologists in a similar way.
The Bible is a horrific story of genocide, deceipt, and immorality (with a few pleasant metaphysical works included). Using such a hate-filled Bible as a magical oracle has led people astray for thousands of years and perpetuated wars by justifying despicable behaviors.
If you don't like the unscientific and troublesome messages coming from the Bible, then read it from cover to cover and engage so that more and more people understand what it is really all about.
