Do all atheists own a Bible? Personally I own two and one New Testament. As a research material what do most of you atheists use, a physical book Bible or online resources such as Bible Gateway or the Skeptics Annotated Bible? Alternatively does anyone use an offline resource, such as a Bible study program on your computer?
For those of you who would like a handy offline Bible resource, I suggest you have a look at the Sword Project, free Open Source Bible study software. This program can be loaded with various versions of the bible as well as commentaries, dictionaries etc; which are available on the module add-ins page. Alternatively you can try BPBible – “a free, flexible Bible Study tool” based on the sword project software engine. BPBible is also fully searchable, a great tool for finding that obscure reference to unicorns for instance. BPBible is also available as a Portable Application which can be run from a USB memory stick, if you don’t want to load it onto your PC/Laptop. The attached picture is the search screen showing the six (6) mentions of the word unicorn in the King James version of the Bible.
There is another version called e-Sword based on the Sword project engine, it looks a lot better than Sword and the graphics work with it.
