Fellow atheists: Are you as tired as I of Christians using the bible as the end all/be all of their arguments?

Why do they do that? In recent years the bible has been shown, at last, to be vastly falsified and made up by thousands of translators and scribes over thousands of years. But Christians still hammer away at that book, saying its the truth, the word of god and ALL answers to life can be found there. No matter how... show more Why do they do that?

No matter how hard I try, I simply cannot wrap my mind around that kind of thinking and logic. (And I DO try, I WANT to understand why Christians have this need!)
Slowly but surely, Christianity and religion in general have been eroded, bit by bit, by philosophy, geology, physics, paleontology, biology and science in general.
Once religion was a world dominant way of thought, now all they have left is faith and an old, falsified book whose meanings and messages are so vague that they can be interpreted hundreds of different ways.
So why? Why do so many still fight to hold on to something so hard even thought it has been falsified? Would it make more sense to obey Green Eggs and Ham?
