When Charles Darwin wrote "On the Origin of Species", slavery was illegal in Britain yet legal in America. Your civil war hadn't even happened yet.
It wasn't illegal throughout the UK- it wasn't banned in Sierra Leone until 1927, and it was nice of England to ban slavery after in installed it as 'normal' practice around the world.

Ah diddums, somebody is very angry with reality.

If only you knew of an all poweful god that could have made things differently for you.

Agreed. Why do atheists keep making up propaganda to falsely promote their agenda?
You mean like how theists waste trees print-spamming books around the whole world and building loads of buildings when they have no proof of god?

The God of the Bible also allows slavery, including selling your own daughter as a sex slave (Exodus 21:1-11), child abuse (Judges 11:29-40 and Isaiah 13:16), and bashing babies against rocks (Hosea 13:16 & Psalms 137:9).

This type of criminal behavior should shock any moral person. Murder, rape, pillage, plunder, slavery, and child abuse can not be justified by saying that some god says it’s OK. If more people would actually sit down and read the Bible there would be a lot more atheists like myself.

The babble is better, tends to be softer paper and a whole babble will last you maybe a week if you don’t eat to much spicy food. Much more economical, considering they give them away free in hotel rooms because they need to get rid of the overprint.

"I'm going to create man and woman with original sin. Then I'm going to impregnate a woman with myself as her child, so that I can be born in human form. Once alive, I will kill myself as a sacrifice to myself. To save you from the sin I originally condemned you to. Ta dah!"

Good points. A deity which permits slavery, stoning and other vile crimes is totally unworthy of worship.

This is the ugliness of atheism. See how hateful the above atheist is?
Very, very hateful. It's what the religion of atheism is all about.
Can you actually do anything else other than lie and hate?

Is this what christianity has taught you to be, a lying, hating troll?

You are such a pathetic example even by the high standards of pathetic examples of your godbot faith

Nope he is claiming that’s what the babble says of the god of the babble.

i.e. the babble claims your god can commit genocide with impunity, condones slavery, child abuse and child murder (in fact the book claims he is pretty good at murdering first born children himself)

There is quite a difference between fact and what is written in mythical book penned by escaped slaves and goat herders. But of course you are a godbot and so you have extreme difficulty comprehending the difference between fact and mythology
