I haven't misrepresented your answer at all. What I recounted is a direct quote from your post
right here. It's the very last sentence of your reply to question 6, and
it does fairly sum up your opinion on the validity of that question.
You think that atheism, the lack-of-belief, is a religion which subsists on faith; you also think that questioning Christianity through atheism is a
pseudo-intellectual pursuit. Both of these stances are patently false.
Atheism is not "having faith that God does not exist" as you seem to believe; it is lacking all belief, or faith, in a higher power, a set of
spiritual rituals and ceremonies, and alternate essences (like spirit, soul, etc). Since you clearly demonstrate a biased opinion of atheism, I can
safely assume your opinions about the questions atheists pose will also be similarly biased. You do not fail to disappoint.
Now then, the reason that the question of how many women went is important is because the Bible is supposed to be the infallible, divinely inspired
word of God. If God cannot count, and if God tells a different story to different people than it makes God an unreliable witness. In a court of law
this is akin to lying, and the testimony of an exposed liar is discarded.
The Bible is a flawed document; whatever pseudo-intellectual babble you dress it up in: it is inconsistent, contradictory, historically and
scientifically inaccurate, and should not be taken as anything more than religious myth, superstition, and a product of a bygone age.
Sorry if my direct quotations of your work offend you. If you don't want people quoting exactly what you say, then don't say it.
