You can keep on heaping insults on dead Adam, or keep on praising him, how in the world it is going to harm him or help him?
So why people should not follow his example?
You did not give any reason for that.
Why you people act so dumb and forget the question which is being asked?
Is this a "sickness" you get when you decide to become an Atheist?
Only a sick person would follow his example, like all those sick Muslims who bomb buildings in the name of their imaginary god.

Dead Adam? Is that the way you will refer to him? How funny. Is insult to the dead a problem for you?

Nothing said or not said, will ever help or hinder the dead. You keep saying we are not helping, what help should he receive from us? The intentions of our words, were never to even attempt helping or harming either the dead murderer or his victims, because either one is impossible. Helping would have been something that could have been done only before their deaths, but not after.

My answer for people not following"dead Adam's" example was in that post. I will repost it for you here. Will you not see it a second time? >> (The reason more people shouldn't follow Adam's example, is first of all Adam is a shitty example of someone to follow. Next he is dead, a murderer, a loser, a nut-case, a freak, not in any way a leader, and did I say loser? What is there to follow?) << Can you see it?

We don't forget the question, you intentionally won't see the answer, no matter how many times we post it.

Atheist is not something you decide to be, it is what all people are until they are indoctrinated. Non-beliver is also what people are until they are indoctrinated, but some are (after indoctrination attempts) disbelieving of the god claims and then deny the validity of theism. That is not the same as being atheist.

Exactly and especially when the poster troll spams again and again and again crap that is way off topic and pointless. Muq and Derek being the main culprits of this and both need to be repeatedly reported for it and have the admins and mods mass delete their spam.

Compare this with total casualties during the life time of our prophet do not even reach 1000 (on both sides), and 400 of which were from this single incident of BANI QURAIZAH, otherwise it would be much lower.

And yet, these Jews have temerity to accuse our prophet of using sword to propagate his faith.

And Moses did not controlled this single fight, he sent his armies again and again and only God knows how many humans they killed in those campaigns.

And mind you, they NEVER gave the chance for these people to come and accept the religion of Jews!! There was no respite given to them except, God has given this land as our Inheritance, you MUST vacate it or get killed.

b. Joshua and use of Jewish laws of War:

Joshua used this law of war many times during his campaigns as we read in the fall of Jericho "They devoted the city to Lord and destroyed with the Sword every living thing in it- men and women- young and old, cattle sheep and donkey" (what was the crime of these poor animals?– MUQ)

And the example of Jericho is not a lone incident in the life of Joshua. In fact most of the book is filled with the heroics of Joshua and his people and how many of the enemies they killed.

If you add altogether, it would be close to a Million humans that were killed during the battles of Joshua and enemies of Israel.

And them compare it with a figure of 1000 during the time of our prophet. Who was a more 'peaceful warrior"?

(Contd.)

You already posted this off topic poorly written spam an now you repost it again? I see we need to start reporting you.

By the way did you forget this is the atheist forum? Why would we care about the Moses myth anymore than we care about the Muhammad myth?

4. Jews and their Laws of War:
And we should see, if Jews had not used this law against their enemies in the past. And we should also see if there were any Jewish Prophets who used this law against their enemies.
If it is proven that Jews did indeed used this law against their enemies, then there is no reason whatsoever that they should complain if they are subjected to the same law themselves.
Details of Jew's Law of War is mentioned in Deut. Chapter 20 which says:
"When you march up to attack a city, make its people an offer of peace. If they accept and open their gates, all the people in it shall be subject to forced labor and work for you"
"If they refuse to make peace and engage you in battle, lay siege to that city. When the Lord your God delivers it into your hand, put to sword all the men in it. As for women and the children, an the livestock and every thing in it, you may take these as plunder for yourselves.… This is how you treat all the cities that are at a distance to you and do not belong to nations nearby"
"However in the cities of Nation that Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breaths. Completely destroy them….for HITTITES, AMORITS, CANNANITES, PERIZZITES, HIVITES, and JEBUSITES, as the Lord your God has commanded you" (Deut. 20 V 10-19)
Very TOUGH and Clear verses, don’t you say!!
5. Was this Jewish Law of war used by any Prophet of God?
No one should think that this law was only in the "stature books" and was NEVER used by Jews against their enemies. We find prophets of Jews using this law in their times against their enemies a number of time.
Let us see some examples:
a. Moses and his fight with MIDINITES:
In the book of Numbers chapter 31, we see Moses taking revenge against the Tribe of MIDINITES (under Close watch of YHWH) let us read some thing from it:
"The Lord said to Moses "take vengeance on the MIDINITES … they fought against the MIDINITES (12000 Israeli force, 1000 from each tribe - MUQ) as the Lord Commanded Moses and killed every man… and Israeli captured women and children and took all their herds, flocks and goods as plunder…
"Moses was angry with the officers of army, "Have you allowed all the women to live?.... Now kill all the boys and kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man (How soon these Jews forgot how were they treated by the Pharaoh and his people? It was their FIRST Generation who escaped from the punishment , now they want to do the same with their enemies- MUQ)
And do you know how many people were killed in one single battle? Just imagine, what is the percentage of women who have NEVER slept with a man in any society?(i.e. women between the age of 1-17?)….10 %?
"And they found 32,000 Women who had never slept with a man" (Num. Ch. 31:35)
So number of humans killed in One Single war of Moses against the TRIBE of MIDIANITE was close to 300,000 !!(If we assume that figures given in Bible are accurate- MUQ)
MUG Be advised, I have today (24/12/12) made the owners/moderators aware of your total ignorance to my warning, and warnings of other posters of your inconsiderate spamming in this forum. EACH time you spam, or fail to enter into debate sensibly in a proper, recognized and in an adult way, I shall consider it an affront aimed at me an resend without notice the CUT & PASTED report I've submitted to the owners/moderators today.
