I actually looked at those verses, it actually IS about a fig tree, but it`s Jesus, and nobody said they hated them. Athiests, hate me now for this comment.

I hate figs too. The last time I ate some fresh ones they made my stomach hurt so much I thought I was gonna pass out. It feels weird to agree with God on anything, but yeah...figs must die and be wiped from the face of the Earth forever.

Dired figs must all be removed from existence. If you`re going to eat a fig, eat it ripe!

i used to hate figs when i was i child, idk why. maybe because of their thousands of crunchy seeds inside. the sweet, ripe, fresh ones are great. it must be deep purple on the outside and blood red on the inside and should be so ripe that it must have cracks on it.

then they taste sugary. very soft & delicious, yumm! ^_^

I once ate a fig. It was the worst fruit I`ve ever eaten. They look so delicious when monkeys on tv eat them. It might`ve just been that they were half rotten, or I forgot to peel them, or they`ve been preserved for over a year to ship them from some tropical country, but still... I understand, God.

Fivezones, what I`ve gotten from your post is that you`re a Muslim that is upset IAB is not making fun of Muslims and Islam, or that you still don`t quite understand IAB after being here for so long.

The thing is, Muslims don`t seem to get their panties in a bunch; they either ignore or make threats when they`re made fun of. Christians, on the other hand, get all upset and whine and moan and then say the same things they`ve been saying forever, which IAB finds amusing.

fivezones: Then the sign would say "Allah loves figs". Which doesn`t make much sense as a parody of the WBC.
Nice to know you consider the WBC to be Christians though, at least you`re not trotting out the No True Scotsman fallacy like so many people do.

I`m happy to poke fun at Islam, if it`s funny or clever. Your attempt is neither.

There is a chapter in the Quran named after the fig tree, and the fruit is also mentioned in Quran in many places. The Quran mentioned figs and then the Prophet Muhammad stated, "If I had to mention a fruit that descended from paradise, I would say this is it because the paradisiacal fruits do not have pits...eat from these fruits for they prevent hemorrhoids, prevent piles and help gout."
Wait, I forgot that IAB only makes fun of Christians because this website is full of cowards

On the following day, when they came from Bethany, he was hungry. Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see whether perhaps he would find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. He said to it, ‘May no one ever eat fruit from you again.’ And his disciples heard it.

Apparently God hates figs because Adam And used the leaves to cover themselves when in the Garden of Eden.
Damn you fig trees for providing leaves so Eve gets cover her boobies....Damn you fig tree

With a little more red tape, you can also say that God hates pigs.

Which he obviously does because his chosen people cannot partake of the deliciousness of bacon. Mmmm....

Or maybe that just means pigs are god`s favorite creation like the way Hindus revere cows.

God only hates them because the only thing he doesn`t actually know is how they get the figs in the fig rolls.

i was about to reply to this and say that i googled it, and all it talks about is figs, and maybe if you misread `fig` as `fag` that would be true, but then i scrolled up and realized i`m a moron with too much time on my hands.

I mostly use this website for the bible, almost always to compare different English translations because that`s what interests me most.

I`ve also used interlinear bibles to get translations from Greek, but I just search for one when I want one. Like this one

Well, you could equally interpret it to mean ALL figs too.

The KJV translation reads:

"And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it."

Whether the `thee` refers specifically to this tree, or to fig trees in general, is a matter of opinion. The words `thee` and `thou` are used plenty of times to refer to a general case throughout the Bible (prime example being the Ten Commandments, thou shalt not X) so the fig trees in general interpretation holds plenty of weight.

@5Cats,

You know it was just fancy shamelessly and gratuitously plugging his political agenda just to get a rise out of us - he likes to associate `good` with `liberal` whenever he gets the chance, since there`s so little actual evidence for the correlation otherwise ;-)

There are plenty of good examples, but this isn`t one. It was just Jesus being a petty whiner over a specific fig tree, not figs in general.

AWalrus: Ah, I suppose you could interpret it as being specific to the one fig tree. Which would allow Christians to eat figs.
But even then, the sign is still correct - God hates figs [from this tree]. So SCFan is still wrong.

Don`t worry, I don`t assume people who argue with me or correct me are trolling :)

Not to completely miss the point, almightybob, as I agree with you, but Jesus rebukes the specific fig tree, he doesn`t curse figs in general, at least not if the passage is read literally.

"And Jesus answered and said unto it [the tree], No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it."

Like I said, not trying to be a troll.

Have you read the verse, SCFan?
Jesus curses figs and says that nobody should eat them ever again (although I`m not sure how many Christians follow this command from Jesus). And since Jesus = God (= Holy Spirit), I`d say "God hates figs" is a pretty accurate summary of the passage.

What specifically is this bald guy ignorant of?

Mark 11: 12-14

The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. Then he said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again". And his disciples heard him say it.

--TRANSLATED FOR THE 21st CENTURY--

The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was peckish and fancied a Big Mac. Seeing in the distance the sign of the Golden Arches, he went to get a delicious burger. When he reached the McDonalds, he found nothing it was closed, because it was 2AM and this was not a 24-hour McDonalds. Then he cast a curse upon the restaurant, saying "A pox upon you, may you never sell another burger again!". And his disciples heard him say it, and Peter turned to James and whispered "Psst, don`t look now, seems like the big JC`s on his period again"
