This is not allowed, I thought. I thought people were supposed to follow it to the tee, but since the bible has been mistranslated and even plagiarized, how is this possible?

Seems like you dont want a response on this. Your OP was so condescending no one that may have had an answer for you would post here.

Your judging christians on the strict followers when the real bulk of the christian population would say something like, " Oh yeah Im christian, i think". Most christians I know dont ever go to church but they still dont denounce their faith.

This is for Christians who shy away from philosophies like Taoism or some forms of Buddhism that lack a "God" and are purely philosophical in nature. Do you think there's something inherently wrong about them, do you have a thing against foreign cultures (maybe apathy?), or do you just assume you don't need to study them because you already know so much?
And here's a follow-up question: Since fields of engineering (like civil engineering, electronics, etc.) aren't in the Bible, does that make them automatically false? If not, then that must mean it's possible for people to discover valuable or at least useful knowledge that isn't in the Bible, and that would have some big implications in itself.

I thank God I was delivered out of those artificial phony "philosophies" and later came to know and realize the only true living God. How could I ever go back to the smelly empty vanity that they offer your ego. What shall I fear? Ha ha ha ha.

I would say christianity is the most open minded religion on the face of the planet,
after all christianity is western society (in many senses).
Im catholic (one of the appearently strict forms of christianity) and im open to pretty much learning and understanding everything i possibly can.

In my opinion christianity is a pretty decent religion because it offers you the bible which is full of stories on how to respect and build civilization with your fellow man
Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?
But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for [her] hair is given her for a covering.
and its no big deal if I say creationism is bunk as i understand that because of the lack of science at the time of the bible being written how would evolution be in there anyways.
I dont think God would have gone to a prophet and been like, " ok so your made of many little cells with DNA and I fixed yall up with some mechanisms like evolution so you can adapt to your environment, now pay attention cause hydrogen bonds form alpha helices naturally with the components of DNA and hydrophobic protiens are held on the inside . . . you getting all this Moses, oh yeah you only have a rock to write on, so on second thought we will just do the ten commandments.
Science can never disprove God,
it can only disprove people that influenced christianity that were full of [snip]
