    Hm, and based on comparative analysis you're dumber than a bag of hammers.

    Comparative analysis is great isn't it?

    Keep trying Gayfly1, you'll eventually get one right. If only by pure dumb luck.
    And in your pathetic case, I emphasize the word dumb.

    That is a rather compelling argument to become a satanist. :D
  7. The bible isnt violent, people are violent. If you are against religion because of the violence, then by the same logic you MUST be against governments, yet you have a horse in that race, dont you? Every country has a history of killing people from other countries to conquer their land. So if you arent going to choose a horse in religion, why do you choose a horse in government?
  8. Kill the Entire Town if One Person Worships Another God

    Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors. "The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him." (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)
  9. All human language is limited and constantly evolving (like physicists had to steal from James Joyce to name subatomic particles "quarks").

    If religions believe God is All-Knowing, then since language is imperfect and limited, anything in a book that a human can read is Dumbed-Down in the extreme, vs what God would know and understand.

    So what do people do? Kill each other over an extremely dumbed-down version of something in a book....

    Still trying to figure that one out.... :D
  10. if god is all knowing shouldnt his book be filled with all the knowledge in the world?
    the bible lectures people on what to wear and what to eat but it lacks a simple command that has caused millons of unwanted deaths. "thou shalt boil the water". why? because germs were not a concept the ignorant men who wrote the bible understood.
