Zombies, Prophets and Sea Monsters: Tackling the Absurdities of the Bible

Zombies, Prophets and Sea Monsters: Tackling the Absurdities of the Bible

Well, strap yourselves in folks because our latest podcast episode takes you on a wild, biblical rollercoaster ride! Our episode, titled "Isaiah Chapter 27," promises all the highs and lows of your favourite theme park, with a dash of political intrigue and plenty of sarcasm.

Right out of the gate, we tackle Isaiah and his penchant for the macabre. Zombies, folks. God-made zombies. Yep, that's in the Bible, tucked away in the cryptic language of the 'good book'. And if you thought zombies were intriguing, wait until you hear about Leviathan, the biblical sea monster. Because nothing says 'I love you' quite like creating a beast just to destroy it later, right? We know, we were just as baffled.

Just when you thought we couldn't take another left turn, we somehow segue into the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This comes courtesy of a potentially controversial phrase - "From the river to the sea." Before anyone gets their knickers in a twist, let us assure you, we are just as flabbergasted by this connection as you are. And before we could dig any deeper, our better judgement prevailed and we decided to step away from the quagmire of Middle East politics. Don't worry, though, we promise to bring it up again, in another episode, probably after a few more beers.

One thing that struck us throughout this journey was the Bible's love for dramatic shifts. One moment, we're dissecting a sea monster, the next, we're serenading a fruitful vineyard. If you're confused, welcome to the club. The only consistency we could find was God's consistent inconsistency, particularly when it comes to his anger management issues.

We're just two atheist podcasters, trying to make sense of a text that has shaped millions of lives. Are we succeeding? Who knows! Are we having fun? Absolutely! So come along, join us on this wild ride, and bring your sense of humour. You're going to need it. Oh, and before we forget, the next time you see a zombie, ask it if it can read. We're dying to know.
