God knew what he was doing, yet he would not have pronounced edict had he known it would cause a problem......blah blah.<quoted text>
Now before you go speaking of incest and genetic defects you have to consider the context of the scriptures and the fact that God knew what he was doing........
God would not have pronounced that edict had he known that it would cause some sort of problem to the genetic code.
Which is it? God knew what he was doing or didn't he? The fact is, you don't know. You don't know if a God exist and it cannot be proven.
The Bible is a book written by man.....period. It's been translated more times than a baby has its diapers changed. Gather a group of people in your home. Have one whisper a story to another person, then he/she whisper to another and continue until it reaches the last person. That story will completely differ than it's origin. If a group of people in a single room cannot accurately iterate a story in a room, how in the hell do you think a book can be accurate through thousands of translation throughout thousands of years?
If I had something to offer the word which would better their lives, I would roam the earth and "sell/advertise" my product or service proving it's existence. Why doesn't a god, who wants to have his people believe in him, display himself and PROVE he exist instead of relying on brainwashing hearsay and a book written by man? If you rebut with some sort of reply of God "testing" the "faith" of man, that makes him a sadist.
I won't dispute a Deity, but I don't follow like a lemming as most religious zealots do. Until there's concrete proof, it's all hearsay. It's best to follow the golden rule before following a book of fiction.
