Contradiction is only seen by narrow perspectve.

Calling the Bible a joke is used to hurt people, not enlighten them.
Those words show bitter arrogance, not constructive critism as it
ignores how others feel about that book. What benefit to others is
gained by calling someones belief a joke? To put the "believers" minds
straight? I think not. I think the unsensitive person who attackes
others beliefs, even if illogical or unrealistic, is after some kind
of self grandizement or to illude themself into thinking "they know
the truth of the universe" and should attack others to prove they do.

Although this is not the place to defend about such things it is also
not the place to attack those same things (that being someone's
faith). There is no real forum to defend a faith or religion, or words
in a book about that, other then where such faiths are in fact

However I did laugh at the ironic use of using any-kind of zen to
seriously, even Python's, as that is very unzen-like. That is a
contradiction by it's very own definitions!
