You could call me a moaning bastard all you want to.

Nope because I found it to be quite reasonable and is something I myself would agree with.

No I do not think that it is rude. I think that the way the question can be conveyed can be considered rude.

It was with the manner you used to ask the questions. In most cases, the idea you were getting at wasn't rude in any way, just the tone and such that you used to me was rude.

I am not encouraging anyone to commit suicide since I think it's stupid to do so even if you do believe in God since blind faith like that is foolish but I am basically getting religious people to think over their religion.
With that particular instance, it came off to me as though you were encouraging them to kill themselves. I do understand that you were questioning their belief and that I have no problem with but it was the way you questioned, the tone you used.

My point still stands that both of us attacked others on here. I won't deny that I did and I'm quite certain you are well aware that you did also.

Then it's rather pointless to continue with this idea.

I want to ask why I've seen contradictions in Bible stories, why some sources say one thing happened but other sources (sometimes, this is in the Bible itself so that book actually contradicts itself there) say other things. I am basically sayng that it makes what religion teaches unclear and should question its truthfulness. I'm also merely wondering why Christians say that Heaven is better than Earth but I want to continue on Earth and go to Heaven when I die naturally. I don't think that they should kill theselves for obvious reasons but I am getting them to see the flaw in their belief, nothing else. so, why then are both of the things I've said so?
Wait... did I read the part in bold correctly?

Some sources say different things because the bible, like all pieces of literature, is open to interpretation.

As for the contradictions, you can argue some of it is due to interpretation but in many places, yes, the bible does contradict itself. The reason I believe this is so is because there were numerous authors who contributed different parts to the bible.

As for your last question, you've said multiple things so I'm not sure what exactly you're referring to.
