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.

You are an atheist PIG-tard. I can see why you will suffer and burn in Hell.
All you can do is dream about what you have been told to dream about, you would not know an original thought if one sat on your face and farted

"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!"

Why is our justice system based on a book that would be thrown out of court through lack of evidence?

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

Of course the Bible God does >not< exist, these myths and stories are contradicted by the real evidence.

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

The Constitution of the USA allowed for slavery until after the Civil War. It was "normal" to own people.

(At least the USA *has* a constitution...)

What you (and society) considers moral (immoral) today will change over time. You think you'd behave differently, i.e., maintain what you think is moral now had you step back two or three thousand years?

You are a bigot now.

Man wasn't created with original sin.

For parodies to be successful, they have to contain an element of truth.

Yours has none.

You have totally missed the point.

According to theists, an unchanging perfect >God< is supposed to reveal his perfect truth to the Bible.

The fact that we today find the Bible immoral and in parts horrific, is positive proof, that a Bible God does not exist, but is the fabrication of primitive minds.

I didn't miss the point at all: I refuted it.

And a theist is a person who believes in a "god" or "gods"- now we have someone putting all theists in the same pile?

You lie and hate and you eat and eat and eat and you have sex with strangers for not very much money.

Who are you to judge, Chubby?

Maybe if you put down that biscuit, you could charge more?
