That's a good reason to say overall, the Bible is trash. It would be mocked in 2012. Very good reasoning.
And it isn't a core of peoples beliefs, people pick and choose the bits they like and disregard the bits they don't.
The Bible is the most fundamental source of differences in beliefs so yes, it is the core of their beliefs. How does people picking and choosing bits to believe make the core source not the Bible?
Every philosophy filters down to the average person, but if we trashed buddha or socrates or descartes you probably wouldn't care.
Nice assumption.
