I can't get over how fake and underwhelming the Bible is (both Old and New Testament) as literature and scripture, compared to even the lowest level writing that you can call an article I've ever come across. I just cannot fathom anyone taking that seriously, let alone as some sort of moral guidance and build civilization on it. I always believe the west's achievements happened completely separately from this pile of garbage. If not, everything instantly becomes atrocious. Well, I did let it get to me sometimes since they stressed it so much, and now I have such hatred for those oil paintings (no longer enjoying european art museums). And I mean, once you have learned the historical context, actual painting technique and how to recreate it digitally, there is no room for any of that awe anyway.
