Which is better, the old testament or the new?

Because the New Testament chronicles the life of Jesus, I like it more. ^_^

New Testament, from what I understand. I still doubt the veracity of the new testament though.

I just like the first few pages from the Genesis

After that, it's boring and confusing

I don't know what you're talking about. All of genesis is boring and confusing from what I've seen.

Haven't seen you in a long time. Hello.

A lot of the problems people have with the old testament are addressed and solved in the new testament. I actually think when people read the bible for the first time that they should start with the new testament.

New Testament. I really dislike how much of the Old Testament goes on and on about bloodlines. "And so _____ begot ______, who begot blah, blah, blah...." I can't sit through it.


No, being an atheist doesn't mean a person cannot favor any section of the bible over another. You're just giving an assessment of a single collection of stories, out of millions of others. It's not hard to do.

Doesn't the new Testament just reinforce everything about the old?

Nope. Some things in the old testament were abolished in the old testament so they aren't reinforced in the new. The new testament tells the story of Jesus and explains none of us are without sin so instead of being saved by law we will be saved by faith. It actually adds a lot and even expands upon the ten commandments. Drastically different.
