So, I guess this is it. I started working on this project back in May of 2006 with the first comic being posted at the beginning of June. To be honest, I never really thought I would finish the bible, I just wanted to go until I got boredwhich actually happened mid-Genesis. But I continued this comic for close to 2,000 days and I attribute my longevity to all of you! Without your criticism, questions, and praise, I never would have lasted this long!

I still think this project is worthwhile; coupling humor, design, and critical analysis makes it much easier for someone to enjoy and comprehend an otherwise atrocious book. But Ive grown so weary of reading, reviewing, and researching a novel I revile. Believers often wonder why non-religious people would waste so much time combating religion, often accusing us of harboring hidden beliefs. But the reality is, the reason we fight religion is because religious people continue to make and support policies that oppress us. Im quite proud of the work I put into this project, and even more proud of the responses Ive received from all of you. While I really wanted to at least illustrate Deuteronomy and finish up the Torah, this project has become a chore rather than a hobby. Pulling myself out of the clutches of religion was a Herculean effort, and I have no desire to let it ruin my happiness ever again!

The comics and the comments will remain online, and I will no doubt begin another religion-themed project before too long, hopefully one that will give all of you more involvement. Until then, thank you everyone who has been reading along with me all these years, youll never realize just how important you have been to me!

TAG, thank you so much for the work you have done. Thank you for being willing to keep this online into the foreseeable future, too. It is an invaluable resource. Even without Deuteronomy rounding out the Torah (first 5 books of the Bible), the logical decimation of all the fallacies, the questions exposing all the hypocrisies, these things will help back up many of us who may find ourselves in that unenviable position of explaining why "Because The Bible Tells Me So" is not the right answer when it comes to questions of morality, ethics, and righteous, compassionate behavior...which does NOT have to rely upon the words of some "holy book" in order to exist and be utilized. Our humanity, our humanitarianism, is not dependent on some imaginary god-being yelling at us and threatening to punish or reward us for arbitrary reasons.

...I still haven't delved into the Book of Mormon or the Bhagavad Ghita, even though I know I should to round out my education in Religions. I know how tiring it is to deal with this stuff. You have my admiration for sticking with it as long as you have, and my gratitude.

Thank you. You've touched more lives than you know...but more importantly, you've touched more *minds* than you will ever know. Thank you.

Bye, TAG.

I always admired your perseverance - I once collected the "wisdom" of Martin Luther and I felt sick after a view weeks, such nauseating spite, cynicism and misanthropy.

Thank you for the countless hours you spend!

I for one couldn't read the bible, so therefor I shouldn't ask you to continue to. It isn't nice to force oneself to be tortured, nor ask another to do the same.

Thanks for all your hard work TAG!

I can't wait to see what you come up with next, even if it's not religious themed.

Hiro.

A Herculean effort. Unlike the many pro-commentators, you had to actually read what it said and deal with the errors instead of cheery-picking and glossing over huge swaths of a horribly written horrible book. I salute you.

...I still wish these could be put into a book format we could buy... *sigh* But at least it'll be online!

No, but thanks for the laughs. Great stuff.

Thank YOU, TAG. In your five years on this job, you've introduced us to new ideas and new ways of thinking. To critical and scholarly methods of engaging with religious texts. This is a comic I usually came away from smarter than before I read it. And more importantly, equipped with the tools to engage intelligently with the material.

And thanks to everyone who joined in the discussions below the comics. Your insight and polite disagreement have provided further depth to the conversation that would have been sorely missed without you.

This comic, in its final form, is an invaluable tool for anyone looking to contend with the zealous, as well as anyone struggling to find a way to engage critically with their religion. Thanks for making it possible.

Oooooh!

Well, it was fun, or at the very least highly educative while it lasted. Thanks a lot for your dedication, Guru.

Thanks for going as far as you did. I was wondering how long you could keep this up for.
I'll miss reading your comics every evening.
Best of luck for the future.

TAG, thanks for all the work you put into this comic! Reading it was funny, alarming, informative, etc. And it helped me once to annoy, confuse and drive away a guy from one of those free churches, when he was trying to sell his church/religion to me. *grin*
All the best!

Thanks. It was an eye-opener to see just how normal the whole thing is.

Your basic crappy soap opera plot, everyone sleeping with everyone else, the rich hoarding all the money, the lawmakers being protected by law, the same show-defining early plot lines retold at great length over many seasons with slightly different characters.

Much like the real world. George Bush, II, the other War in Iraq, nothing like Vietnam, honest.

Your comic was informative and yet quite entertaining. Thanks for all your dedicated research. The time and energy you've put into it were very much appreciated. Best wishes.

I step away for a bit and come back hoping the catch up and it ends :( thanks for all your work I've read the bible multiple times both when I was religious and after I left but you still pointed out a lot of things i missed.

The Hand writes:

 

Thank you TAG. I've truly enjoyed reading these. Once you let your imaginary friend tell you what to do, bad things will happen. Or as Stephen Weinberg said "Religion is an insult to human dignity. Without it you'd have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things it takes religion."

Let's hope that some day religion, all religion, will become forgotten as slide rules.

Well, no idea if you remember this name, but in the off-chance you do: hello again, thanks again for having made this, and while it saddens me to see you drop it, I completely understand. Thank you again, and please do have fun in whatever projects you tackle hereafter.

(Fun fact: I went back to check how exactly I'd spelled my nick back in the day, and I had terrible diction. Embarrasingly so!)

TheAlmightyGuru writes:

 

Thank you so much everyone for the kind words! I really appreciate all your posts, critiques, and insight!

And yes, I've read every post ever made to this comic, and I remember pretty much everyone who posted (Yes, you too, Mr-know-it-all).

Laura writes:

 

Sorry I missed the ending TAG. I hope many new great wonderful comics are made by you in the future.

Larqua writes:

 

aww.

I managed to lose the comic via multiple hard drive losses and computer switches, sad to see it ended in the meantime, was looking forward to the new testament.

That said, I can't really blame you for stopping considering what a slog it is to read through the thing. Best of luck in your future endeavors.

Couldn't take the truths in Old Deuteronomy, could you?

"Tired of the Bible" typical Athiest way of tapping out. And now this place is a haunt for spammers. I was right. The Bible is right.

THIS SITE IS A FAIL!

TheAlmightyGuru writes:

 

@This Site is a FAIL: I've missed you so much! I only wish you didn't hide yourself away for so many years.

You're right, of course, Deuteronomy is just too full of truthiness for me to continue. Like in 22:20-21 where God orders women to be tortured to death if they can't prove that they're virgins on their wedding nights.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deuteronomy+22:20-21

Then, I read ahead to 1 Samuel 15:3 where God orders the wholesale slaughter of infants and children.

http://biblehub.com/1_samuel/15-3.htm

So, I thought to myself, "How are you going to deal with such correct truths? Shut it down... you've lost!"

One Weird Dude writes:

 

I'm a Christian, and I'm sorry to see your comic end. I enjoy seeing your take on things (sometimes), and I'm sorry you never made it out of the books of Moses, never mind making it to some of my favorite stories like Jonah or Job or King David. Maybe you could write those up without illustrating them?

TheAlmightyGuru writes:

 

Hello One Weird Dude. Thanks for the kind words. Even though the comic was highly critical of the bible, I tried to make it as fair as I could and consider the position of believers.

I still write about religion on my main site:

Check this out... I've been running a lot of tests on my website recently to see what I could do to increase leads and sales. I realized I wasn't using FOMO and I noticed you aren’t either.

Fear of missing out or FOMO, really gets people to take action.

I ran a split test to see how effective it would be. One page didn't have Proof on it, the other did. That was the only difference and guess what... The page with Proof got 23% more leads than the one without it!

I thought this tool would help you too. I'm by no means "techy" and I was still able to install it myself pretty quickly, and if you have any trouble their customer success team is AMAZING.

Hi,

My name is Randy and I was looking at a few different sites online and came across your site blasphemersbible.com. I must say - your website is very impressive. I found your website on the first page of the Search Engine.

Have you noticed that 70 percent of visitors who leave your website will never return? In most cases, this means that 95 percent to 98 percent of your marketing efforts are going to waste, not to mention that you are losing more money in customer acquisition costs than you need to.

As a business person, the time and money you put into your marketing efforts is extremely valuable. So why let it go to waste? Our users have seen staggering improvements in conversions with insane growths of 150 percent going upwards of 785 percent. Are you ready to unlock the highest conversion revenue from each of your website visitors?

TalkWithLead is a widget which captures a website visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number and then calls you immediately, so that you can talk to the Lead exactly when they are live on your website — while they're hot!

Try the TalkWithLead Live Demo now to see exactly how it works. Visit: https://www.talkwithlead.com/Contents/LiveDemo.aspx

When targeting leads, speed is essential - there is a 100x decrease in Leads when a Lead is contacted within 30 minutes vs being contacted within 5 minutes.
