Great post! A perfect demonstration of how just one atheist can make more sense than a thousand Christians.<quoted text>
Dude. Your commandment to not steal? You stole it from the Jews.
Christian ethics are inadequate. The first forty percent of your Ten Commandments is dedicated to feeding your god's enormous ego. They're all about him and his endless need.
And ours make your look even more ridiculous. Your Ten Commandments don't even mention such ethical ideals as justice, compassion, tolerance, helping the weak and disadvantaged, egalitarianism, democracy, freedom, integrity, or courage. Instead, one is dedicated to honoring your parents.
GTFOOH with your shabby "ethics." Obedience under threat of eternal torture isn't ethical behavior anyway.
The Ten Commandments are indeed, a joke.
"Honour thy father and mother" Jehovah says.
Man, what a dumb deity he is.
What if you father is Josef Fritzl? I'm sure you remember him.
Do Christians honestly believe that Fritzl's daughters should still honour that man? If they do then that proves just how degenerate their sense of morality actually is.
If, however, they admit that it doesn't apply in this particular case then it's hardly an absolute rule.
Which makes a mockery of their deity.
