Really?

How many individuals have been killed as the result of scientific experiments, as opposed to how many have been killed due to religious motivation?

So "true Christians" ignore the parts of the Bible where God told people to kill?

Now you are dodging your own words. Sad, so very sad.
Saying the word doesn't mean I meant to confuse you. You still have to define what "normal" is. Why do you call people insane and delusional if you didn't think you are the normal one? Are you a mad scientist?

Half that list didn't fit, and there are a few more lists. The better question is, what doesn't your god command to be killed? I didn't even get into the freaking sacrifices yet.

Wrong. From your favorite source, Wikipedia:
"Rejection of the state religion was tantamount to treason. This was the context for Rome's conflict with Christianity, which Romans variously regarded as a form of atheism and novel superstitio."

Wrong. Was it the official religion in the whole empire, yes or no?
That's what "state religion" means. Official in all jurisdictions of the state.

If "*no* TRUE Christians would *not*", that's the same as "TRUE Christians *would*".

No, you did not answer the question, you avoided it:

I will repeat the question:

If your god commanded you to kill, would you kill?

Only a dishonest person would refuse to answer, only an atheist would be unable to answer. Which are you, dishonest or an atheist? Also, your god has commanded killing in your own bible, so yes, it would command such.
What if you have no idea what caused the creation event known as the big bang and think atheists just another religious group pushing their own myth about how things came into being?

Anyone who claims to know the ultimate truth and seeks to convert the masses to their "one true faith"...

Then you know you are a liar. So all that is relevant is that whether you even believe the BS you spout since you know you're a liar, or if your humongous ego makes you think you get a free pass from God to break the 9th Commandment as often as you like.

You are merely a psychological curiosity of fundamentalist psychology in a sea of millions. Nothing more special than that.

Why are you referring to words like they must all have scientific meaning?
The meaning of words changes over time. They have no fixed meaning. It is called evolution.

Sir Charles,
With all due respect, could you possibly edit your descriptive statement in regards to the means of passing along information from generation to generation, to "VERBAL tradition" please.
It sounds MUCH nicer, with a keener byte as to what you are actually stating--and far less sodom and gomorrish.

You didn't answer the question, why won't you answer the question?

I didn't ask if your god would ask you to, I asked "if it did ask would you?"

I didn't ask you to break your own god's commands, but you do so flippantly, how can we trust you in anything at all now?

That was not the question I posted, why do you ask a new question without answering the one I asked as the response to my post asking a question?

It's a simple question:

If your god commanded you to kill, would you obey it?

It's not a difficult question to answer for sane people or atheists, why can't you answer it?

I am not the one claiming it's based on reality, I am asking that since you think it's reality, you lied when you stated your god would never command killing. You are a liar ... or a troll, starting to think you're a troll now.
