No.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: By the Numbers
I have read multiple versions of the "Bible". As a student of history and politics I understand the influence of religious books on society. I find I know more about the Bible than most Christians. I also seem to know more about the religion they profess to believe in than most people that claim to be religious.
Most religious professionals either out right lie or vastly misrepresent what is in religious scriptures. I never understood the need to say a guy so he could tell you what the text means. Grift and graft.
