In answer to your question.

No.

Their brains are putty in the hands of others. They lack the spark to generate independent thought. Drones. Imitation life. No need to respect them as human beings. Although they will preach you should. It enables the agenda of those that produced them.

You are not on here to reason with them. It is impossible. You are on here to reinforce and coalesce your own thoughts to your own ends. They are mere props.

You are utterly ignorant about evolutionary science. Evolution is simply a change in alleles over time. It does not speak to origins. If only you clowns realized ignorance wasn't a virtue.

I agree, they are all around me, cant go to Facebook without a dozen "pray for me" requests or for some sick child, every check out clerk says "have a blessed day" instead of have a NICE day.

Help me please, take some of them back, or send some out west where there is a lot of empty space. Help, help.

The Greeks outlawed homosexuality? You just talk right out of your stink hole, don't you.

And Italian and a Greek were discussing whose history was the superior one. The Greek exclaimed, "We have the Parthenon!"

The Italian retorted, "We have the Coliseum!"

The Greek exclaimed, "We invented Mathematics!"

The Italian yelled, "We had the great Roman Empire."

This continued on until finally the Greek, smugly stated what he knew would give him the last word, "The Greeks invented sex!"

And the Italian shot back, "Yes, but the Italians introduced it to women!"

Why don't you come back when you have at least one thing you understand or know?

<quoted text>The Bible instructs man to rape and beat their slaves ...???
...Wow...how can anyone now , believe anything you write from this point forward ...?
Rape:

When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.(Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)

Beating:

When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property.(Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)

The servant will be severely punished, for though he knew his duty, he refused to do it. "But people who are not aware that they are doing wrong will be punished only lightly. Much is required from those to whom much is given, and much more is required from those to whom much more is given." (Luke 12:47-48 NLT)

Yeah, it's an ugly book. Look at what it has done to you.

the 10 commandment never reach such draconianism .
They never reach past thought crimes outside of not killing or stealing. Is this really the best goat herders could pass down to humanity as laws to follow. How about admonitions against war, violence, rape, slavery?

Death leads to being dead, no judgement, just gone on to make way for the next generations, as nature has intended for millions of years. The only people who worry about a judgement are the Christians who wonder if they did just enough to get them through those pearly gates and to those golden streets and a mansion made just for them.

We are living creatures made the same way as all mammals on this planet. I haven't heard of anyone trying to save the soul of their dog, cat, pig, cattle or any other creature. We are no better than they are, but because of the unique structure of our brains, we think we are. We think we are so special that when we die, a magical creature is going to take us up to a place where we can live on forever.

Then there are those of us who recognize the truth and live our lives like it is the last life we have. Cause it is.
