PBS: Myths of the Bible

PBS is running a series of stories about the Jewish history as told in the bible. There is little to no evidence to support the bible, including the much-believed idea that Moses wrote the first five books. It would have been difficult (although the gullible would swallow it) for Moses to write about being dead and buried.

What I want to know about is the covenant Abraham supposedly made with God. This is right after God tells him he was just kidding, he doesn’t have to kill the baby. The covenant says he’s going to lead him to a promised land, where he’ll be fruitful and multiply. Oh, but you have to cut off the head of your dick. (After that, being fruitful would be a miracle.) And all of your offspring, incestuous though they might be, have to cut off the heads of their dicks, too.

Enjoy that promised land.
