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?

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.

maybe ya missed it...here it is again.
"God would never tell one to kill...It's something all "true" Christians KNOW"
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.

Lets just say, that no TRUE Christian would not kill another on the grounds of their beliefs...
But on the other hand Evolutionists have no such qualms.
And of course YOU (and your monumentally massive humongous ego) gets to decide who is and who isn't a "true" Christian, right?

Would you or would you not kill if God commanded you to? Keep in mind that in the golden olden days your god was shall we say, a bit of a cranky pants. Then he sends his hippy son down and chills out for a bit. Then at the end of the story he has another mood swing and turns into a major ahole again.

So remind us again why you're attempting to lecture others in morality when you derive yours only from an invisible magical wizard just because it tells you so, motivate purely out of fear and selfishness?

I do not even know what a god is. So to answer it would be silly. As for killing our government kills people every day. We are currently in a perpetual state of war (against a religious group). So that is hardly a big deal.
