Depends what level of meaning you read into it, I think.
12 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 11/15/09 - 7:09:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
there are 66 books written by several authors, involving several stories, scandals, conspiracies, poems, and family trees.
Despite it being a lot of malarkey, I'd say it's a pretty complex book.
12 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 11/15/09 - 7:47:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Complex, though I would say the creation story is simple... and simply WRONG.

And, why isn't there a tabloid link here?

I'm going to say complex because I know even if I did attempt to read it, I wouldn't understand 70 percent.
12 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 11/15/09 - 8:31:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think it's meant to be simple, and the complexity has been created over the years.
12 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 11/15/09 - 10:47:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know. Never read it.

the only thing worse than not knowing is not wishing to know.

I haven't read most of it, but it sounds like it's very hard to follow.
12 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 11/16/09 - 5:09:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
Well... there are alot of quotes and such that requier your own way of figuring it out and looking at it. So it is complex, and probably has very nice points in it, yet I do not believe in god ;P

Well, the Bible is two books really.
One that's utterly intricate and almost ridiculous to read, yet very archaic and simple in its essence.
And the other is quite simple in structure and easy to follow, yet filled with meaning and wisdom.
12 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 11/16/09 - 11:09:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
Complex in the sense that most of the stories have multiple meanings to them.
12 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 11/16/09 - 2:05:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well if you read a portion of it it is complex but it is very easy to understand when you read it. it is the book you need to read if you want to go to heaven.

that isn't what the question was asking, you insipid halfwit.

i think the meanings and teachings behind it are very simple

but some (both religious and non religious) twist the points around to suit their arguments at the time, making them more complex.

This. Times a million.

The bible is simple for some, and complex for others, depending on how deeply you read and your intelligence.

But reading too deeply can cause you to become a religious nut. If you read it on the toilet, then most likely you will miss the values it attempts to teach.

How much you need to read is irrelevant.

So... all those priests who refused to teach their congregation Latin (pre-KJV) were actually damning them all to hell?

As far as the question at hand, I'm going to note pedalmetal's prior point.

How can a work comprised of so many separate books be considered "simple" by any standard? Certainly central themes may be simple, but the book on its own is not at all.

Actually... It may be "simple" when considered relative to the Upanishads. But that's really really relative.

I read the bible - cover to cover - more than once.

That's what caused me to stop being a Christian.

I like where this is going.
12 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 11/17/09 - 2:24:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think its a nice work of fiction writing and short stories

And how much stupidity that was in that comment was irrelevant.
