According to Bill Maher:

“The Bible was not meant to be history; it was not meant to be literal,” he opines. “They were parables; people read it back then and read into it something that was not literal; we’re the dummies who read it literally.”

Is the Bible merely a bunch of parables that was never meant to be taken literal or considered as history?

I don’t think so. The comedian is really showing his ignorance here about the variety of literature that really is contained in the 66 different books of the Bible. Obviously some of it is literally history.

Here’s an good response to Bill Maher’s claims about the Bible:
