Lying for god

Tidleb has this post on his blog as a response to a theist, Eva, and her exaggerations or rather misrepresentation of her former beliefs or lack of.

Eva tells us

I can’t exactly remember how things started to change, but I do know that, over time, something began to happen. Everything in my life was going along nicely, but something certainly shifted. I started to wonder ‘what if?’  What if there is something more than what we see around us. What if we are more than just our body? Could all the beliefs that I have built my life on, been wrong? Probably not, but what if?

So I decided to buy a Bible. The only familiarity I had with the Bible was from the bits that are quoted in the Life of Brian and I didn’t even know where to find one. I finally did, in Ellison Hawker. It was pink fake snakeskin, which would not have been my first choice, but I smuggled it home in a brown paper bag.

My friend tildeb has addressed part of the lies. I want to point out here that, whereas I haven’t read her other posts, this conversation story actually looks made up. Her agnosticism, if real, was poorly informed. Did you notice her play with Pascal’s wager?

Why the bible and not the Gita, Vedas, Koran, or even the book of moron Mormon?

And who doesn’t know where to find a bible? You live in Saudi Arabia? I mean, you could even order online.

Her story sounds like a case of make it up as you go along.
