Those verses can't both be true,

How do I know which verse to believe?
O...let's wait for langoliers answer.

The angels also look like men and they were created before Adam.

Bad interpretation of the Bible lead to priestly celibacy and the rape (and some castration of young children) of thousands upon thousands of children.
The Church's (supposedly taking inspiration from the Bible) are nowadays trying to deny safe abortions and birth control to women (control their bodies and sex life).
The church down through the ages has been responsible for the torture and death of many people who expressed their disbelief in God or the Church or the Bible.
Even now the Muslims (who supposedly worship the same God) are killing people for disbelief, heresy, and blasphemy.
There's more, but I'm depressed now.
So Christianity and the Bible are really responsible for several million poor peoples death.
We should one day do some actual count.

Quite ironic that some people would blame Christianity for the very thing that it quite plainly speaks out against above all other religions.

Luke 6:27
But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,

Matthew 18:21-22

Then Peter came up and said to him,Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times? Jesus said to him,I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.

Romans 12:17-21
Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written,Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord. To the contrary,if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Gun's were not a "scientific" discovery. They are an engineering accomplishment. Abortion was not a gift of science either. The only one from your list that you can attribute to science is the atomic bomb. And Christians and religious people have still cause far more deaths over the history of the world.

Is self defense never a good thing? Is any kind of defense bad?

Your former post was about science.
But religion killed by virtue of the interpretation they call the ultimate and only truth, were i distinctly recall: do not kill.

What non hebrew bbible readers make of it is a total parody.
Always out of context.

I believe Jesus meant we should give our enemy every chance to do the right thing, but at some point the bad guy will have to be stopped.

The Bible mentions the language of Canaan in Isaiah and the Phoenician writing was part of it. We have many words today that have origins from then "QTN" which means "thin" in Canaanite is where our word "cotton" came from. NImrod/Marduk spoke it and spread it abroad.

Have you never considered that it could have been a parody?
Here we have the romans that crucify hundreds every day, that use and abuse peole as slaves. And there we have jesus and his band of merry man traveling freely, freeloading of widows and telling people to love the Romans and pay the tax!

Do you really think he was anything like a saviour to those down trodden or is it more likely that the entire new covenant is making a joke out of judaism!

Woman have spontaneous abortions all the time...where do you draw the line.

Or you get babies in suitcases and the garbage-dump or in the backyard.
I think it's sanctimonious nonsense off people that love a society where competition is the norm and where nobody gives a rats-ass about poverty or rape. Everybody is responsible for their own life is not even being a society!

Perhaps I should have said "cookbook engineering". I would still not call it science. And religion is still responsible for more deaths. Guns don't shoot people all by themselves.
