Why was slavery wrong for the ancients? For the same reason it's wrong now, and will be wrong 2,000 years from now. Your twisting and turning in the wind here, owning another human being under ANY circumstance is wrong, period. If you can rationalize slavery as NOT being wrong at any time, then you are as immoral as your God who promotes slavery.<quoted text> In a world without God you have no objective reference point to judge ancient cultures in far away places. Why was slavery objectively wrong for the ancients? Who are you to judge right and wrong for the ancients? Can you even determine historical context? You keep the Bible around to validate your prejudices. They are logical contradictions which exist in your head. You know next to nothing about the Bible and could not pass a basic biblical literacy test.
<quoted text> Are you making these accusations up out of thin air?
<quoted text> I get the gist of your argument. I just don't buy your conclusion. It simply means they classified things different for different reasons. The fact you will not accept this reasonable explanation only indicates your hopeless hostility, and unreasonable stubborness. Like i wrote it is a minor point made by hyper critics with a hostile agenda. It did not originate with you.
<quoted text> God don't screw up people do. How can you be so anal? Don't you realize how dogmatic and anal you are? Insisting God screwed up in the bats and birds thing. Ignoring historical context. Don't you realize how foolish and stubborn you appear to reasonable people? I get tired of slapping folks like you around and you still don't learn anything. Useless as tits on a tomcat.
It would appear that I know more about your holy book than you and most Christians do.
"It simple means THEY classified things differently" Who is THEY? You keep referring to the "ancients" are you now claiming that ancients wrote the bible and it is NOT the word of God. Lets get our positions straight before we carry on here. For if GOD is the author of the bible, then it is HE, not the ANCIENTS, that got the classification wrong. Does it seem reasonable to you that the creator of all things including bats and birds would screw up the classification?
