Nobelsprisvinnaren Jose Saramago hävdar att världen skulle vara bättre utan bibeln och att den är ”en handbok i dålig moral”. Kan inte annat än hålla med.
”The Bible is a manual of bad morals (which) has a powerful influence on our culture and even our way of life. Without the Bible we would be different, and probably better people,” he was quoted as saying by the news agency Lusa.
”Saramago attacked ”a cruel, jealous and unbearable God (who) exists only in our heads” and said he did not think his book would cause problems for the Catholic Church ”because Catholics do not read the Bible.”
He said he would not have to settle accounts with God, because ”the human brain is a great creator of absurd notions, and God is the most absurd one of all.”
