You're the one trying to push the notion that the skin color of the ENTIRE BODY was changed... and YOURE the one using this illogical falsehood stupidity:
1. God did it so people wouldn't accidentally kill him? Even though the whole point was that Cain would be afraid for those deliberately seeking to murder him. You Dummy.
2. You thinking that changing his skin color is somehow helping people "not" recognize him? Well you gotta make a whole bunch of assumptions. But before we do so, you're as coy as No Surprise. What color was Cain's ENTIRE BODY CHANGED TO (since you're insisting he wasn't merely marked). After all, dummy, now he's got this newfangled thing going on that attracts MORE attention!
<quoted text>
lets see...

Adam was 1 color Eve came from him....
at that time we had Adam and Eve = 1 color.

now we have dark skin and light skin.

how did that happen genius?

You have to figure that out.

But Just because it HAPPENED, doesn't mean that the passage about CAIN has anything to DO with it.

You trying to say that white people came from the mark of Cain or something? That would be rather racist of you.

You trying to say that black people came from the mark of Cain or something? That would be rather racist of you.

One but not the other... hmmm...

OR neither, and perhaps skin color variation came about from some other means!

See that's just it

YOU ARE THE ONE FIXATED ON SKIN COLOR!

And YOU ARE THE ONE SO RACIST you AUTOMATICALLY GO TO

"MARK" to mean "SKIN COLOR" even though it's not

why not the tower of Babbel?

but more importantly, why focus on Cain?

is it a coiencidence that you're focusing on the same passage that was used against black people for hundreds of years?

And thirdly the psychology.

You guys have been saying that I'm the racist.

yet here you are...

so obsessed with having a nice package easy answer that fills your void of racism

"how did that happen genius"

AS IF... I have to have an explanation to REPLACE this racist myth garbage...

that causes YOU and No surprise to take the meaning of "A MARK" and changes it to "THE ENTIRE BODY COLOR CHANGED"

I mean you'd AT LEAST acknowledge, with all of your rigid interpretations... AT LEAST say "Yea Osirica, it's a metaphor"

BUT NO...

Look at you! Sinking!

And your buddy No Surprise? I lobbed two torpedos "Owth" and the Syriac countdown on his candy behind!

1. Changing his skin to a black person wouldn't help him stand out in any way. Why would you think it would? Why would you assume it's black skin verses any other color? Isn't that racist?
2. Even still, he's targeted not "by accident" but because people would come after him for killing his brother. THEREFORE, people WOULD recognize him, THEN try to kill him.
WHICH MEANS...
Whatever the OWTH.. the SIGN is.. it would be a sign to the OTHERS that God is protecting him. THUS a mere change of skin color would not make such an effect.
But perhaps something supernatural to show his wouldbe killers to back off. Since the Hebrew word OWTH over SIXTY times ELSEWHERE refers to a sign. And those signs are usually miracles.

Leviticus 19:28 - does not use the hebrew "OWTH". Uses a different Hebrew word.

Leviticus 19:28 - "QA'AKA" which was NOT used for Cain. This is the word that WOULD have been used in Hebrew if Cain was actually given a physical mark!
Ruth 3:4 - "QAL" which means to make a "note"!(Mark this down)
1 Sam 1:12 - "SHAMAR" which means to take heed.(Mark my words)
1 Sam 20:20 - "MATTARA" which refers to an easy target,(He's a mark)
NONE OF THESE MATCH YOUR LYING FILTH
I've WAITED for this. You tried and tried to avoid and I forced your hand.
And you know what's so funny? You tried to sneak it by didn't you?
Throw the various hebrew words in for the same "ENGLISH" word.
The English word "mark" has several meanings, some are even homograms. In the END, none of those and none of the Hebrew words for "discoloration" is used to describe black people.

My source was a Jewish source for where OWTH is used in the OT. So I suppose I'll just relent and say(in a lie)you know more then the jewish scholars/rabbis interpretation. You win :)

No she's right.
You went and tried to counter by finding various uses of "mark" in English bibles.
yet the issue here isn't the use of "Mark" elsewhere, but in that passage.
Did the word Mark in that passage mean
Physical mark like a tatoo
Mark as in take a note
Mark as in mark my words
Mark as in easy target
and so on?
And despite all that, none of it, not in English or Hebrew refers to changing someone's ENTIRE BODY COLOR. That's not a "mark".
Calling Dana a she? She's a he I believe. You might want to ask him to be sure.

You are a racist. You're a black racist. Everything Biblical to you is black and African in origin from all the people to the present day Jews that are black by genetics but according to you don't realize it. You stated if God had a colour it was black. That a black God obviously created a black race of Africans like himself. And he began with Adam and Eve. And everyone was black and African to way past Abraham and Moses. You stated all other colours and races were 'mistakes' and somehow weren't born to be their real true selves, black Africans.
You're thee most self defined racist that bounces about these threads that exists.

So what.

No one is saying that God ordained it as a curse against Hebrew (some of which were also BLACK) because of a curse on Cain.

The Egyptians, who were one of MANY black groups in the world, enslaved the Hebrews because the Egyptians at that time were ignorant of God.

You get what I'm saying buddy? Or are you going to play dumb some more?

No you didn't

All you did was copy English translations of the Bible.

None of your comments related to "OWTH" but instead related to the English "Mark"

I broke it down and here you are hoping to sneak your lie by.

Get your BUTT BACK OVER HERE:

"My source was a Jewish source for where OWTH is used in the OT."

NO IT WAS NOT

YOU DID NOT SHOW SOURCES OF OWTH, YOU QUOTED PASSAGES WITH THE ENGLISH WORD MARK!

That would be, except that is not what I believe.

God is a spirit, not a physical person from any part of Earth.

I've said that to you a million times.

So you lie below... AGAIN.

Your other statements about God making Adam and Eve and then cursing other colors?

Also a lie, I've never talked about others being "false colors" of God. How can any skin color be a "true" color of god in the first place? God is a spirit, not a physical being.

I've explained this to you MULTIPLE TIMES

Nope.

None of that garbage below is what I teach or believe. I believe that Adam/Eve were black because they were created in Africa, and in an environment that is appropriate for darkerskinned people.

There is nothing racist about that. If they were created in the cold mountains, I'd accept that they were white. But that's not the case.

Also, I don't try to push an agenda that whites (the white race) came from a mark and curse on Cain.

My opinion is not rooted in ignorance and bias

Yours and the one you defend... is.

There is nothing in the thing that implies, it goes to a point to where it's not even a mark.

Changing the entire color of something is not placing a mark on it.

It's idiotic, especially even the Hebrew writer outlines the difference.
