You say:

Quite Ironic that Christianity would have that in their Bible and still go about doing all that maiming and killing. All in the name of your God.

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.
"Whsat non hebrew Bible readersis a total parody"

How true that is. Most of them only follow that which they want to follow...not all of it.

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.
never really heard of a bible killing nobody either...

<quoted text>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.
That would however fit with the idea that the Magi (not confused with magicians. But in Babylon history we had Medes and Madi-barbarians and later Magi, a tribe from even further afield near Altai*, that were hot on each others trail or vice versa. All the way to Anatolia.) They were a tribe that raided the Jericho turf. The story tells it later as if Moses was complicit and in a judean form, but also Finkelstein comes with a northern invasion theory.
Later mingling with the heth/hittite. And various names given to the geography in the Sinaï can be traced to a marduk/nimrod/merodach invasion.(maybe three times in the history. 2300-1800-600? Have to read up on my notes)Mari one of the places they settled. So i would trace it to Mari cuneiform dialect. Or at least try that first.

But old hebrew has several dialects, and forms of writing, though i believe Canaan, Omri/Israel and Phenicia was one and the same.
The what we now call Phenician aabecedary can clearly be traced to starsigns, and parts of starsigns.

*Also iconography of fierce monsters with wings, lionfeet, serpent like i.e. dragons were invented to defend the entry into the valley. So you could also follow the spread of thse images to follow the trail.

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.
yet we know that they are to blame for so much of it.

they wiped fueding sects of christianity right off the face of the earth. As recently as the balkan conflict we had christians killing other christians and muslims in the name of their god.

most cults preach peace but in reality they have caused most of the vbloodshed on this planet. it is the inherent divisivness of religious cults that is the problem. when we move past the days of mythical cults as a society, we will be a far better species all around.

look at the least religious countries on the planet, helathies, happiest citizenry, best educated kids, hifghest standards of living... you know, not cave men...

and as far as abortion goes, your claiming that the medical field is not a branch of science?
Abortions have been know as long as man has been civilized. The medical profession is just a handy scapegoat.

And though I would not say that abortion is a good thing it is definitely not murder. Even the Bible seems to agree on that.

Not just that.
But they always quote some verse at you that in context points to an entirely different meaning.

Nice to be on the same page and chapter.:]

Really? You haven't heard of wackos like the Jehovah's Witnesses reject medical care because of the Bible? And of course we all know that organized religion has killed millions.

So how many people did Christians kill last year in the name of God?

I seemed to have missed that one on the news.

it was in reference to the number killed, by the scientific method...

they were also killing people with rocks before the scientific method was born...but the point was that the scientific method makes the ability to kill exponential.

FREE SERVANT got any usefull links?
Mari/Hurri at least brings some. Apropos it would be the socalled Amorite connection.

I love the judging, definitely controversial stuff.

Ah well moses and yacub are attested in archeological finds but not as biblethumpers are used to, but indeed in connection with old ugarit, Knan and Phenician and Egyptian sources.

I said it before if you want to be critical you can count on the entire conservative SAVE JESUS movement. As if the hebrew bible is even their book!

it is the number of women alive that makes the numbers today so much higher...

it is not the science, it is the people that use those ideas and make weapons out of them....mostly religious people to date.

llok at the US air force...uber-christians with nuclear bombs....yikes!

I guess you missed the "thou shall not kill" part.lol

Even the old testament teaches that.

Christianity is based on the teachings of Christ...you seemed to have overlooked that fact.

yet it is there..even in the old testament...god is OK with killing in his name...and slavery and subjugating women and other races, and abondon ing his kids...

why is it you don't know this about your religion again?

So where in your religious cult book does it telll you to kill people that don't believe in your god? why don't you know this about your cult? is your faith that weak?
