Depends on what you're looking for. If you're into genocide, human sacrifice, rape, questionable morals, then you might want the old testament. If you're more into contradicting passages about questionable morals you might be looking for the new.

I don't believe in God, but if I had to choose I would say that the New Testament is better. The old testament is way bloodier and probably contains more instances of what could be perceived as hypocrisy (God says don't murder people. Proceeds to drown everyone on earth. Apparently he is the Thane of Whiterun so he get's away with it. That's just my perception though).

Hmmm, when I surf the channels on the remote these two don't turn up. Is this an extension off The Weather Channel? History Channel?

Disclaimer: above post is solid BS. Even though raised as a Catholic I have minimal positive associations being one so I remain ambivalent re Religion. The End.

That's not hypocrisy. God doesn't murder. Killing a person is murder and wrong because you don't have the right to take life. God created life itself and has the right to take it away.

Never read either so I wouldn't have a clue and I'm glad, don't think I'd enjoy it

Better in what way?
I like the ones with super thin pages because I think they're pretty.

I'm sure Coca-McDisney is working on a prequel.

Why do people prefer rock music over techno or red over blue? Just my preference, I'm not saying the old testament is superior to the new testament. It's not really fair since they're just two collections of writings compiled together with individual books.

Never read a single word in that book. Not a book person, nor am I a religious person.
