I said just because something is covered under your insurance does not mean YOU have to use it. I assume a heart transplant is covered under mine, but I have no plans to change hearts.

Do you think that humans are an endangered species? There are only 7 billion of us. The rainforest and whales are endangered. They become less and less as we become more and more. Why do you wish to see the rainforests destroyed? Or whales.

Let's get this straight.

'Rational atheist' oxymorons condemn the Bible for setting guidelines regarding slavery in cultures where it was a consequence of war and debt, but excuse the sacrificial murder of unborn children for the convenience of irresponsible couples.

Takes a reprobate to think like that...

1) there is no actual history in support of your 400 years of slavery.
2) the story as told in your bible, is quite disgusting.
In it, your god deliberately prevents poor Pharaoh from actually letting the people go-- so that the bible's god can glory in his ultimate death.
And make no mistake-- the bible **literally** says that Pharaoh's death brings glory to bible-god!
That's pretty sick right there...
.. but before that? Many others have to be slaughtered by your god, first.
It appears you worship a god who gets off on killing......
...sick.
Bob,

I guess you think those 180 Pyramids in Egypt built themselves. Incredible.

I did not endorse slavery for the Jews. Reading and comprehension issues much? LOL!
Refusing to believe the Jewish people were slaves is a endorsement of Anti-Semitism. Just like the former Iraq President refused to believe in the Holocaust. Both cases are historical events.

You can’t build 180 Pyramids in ancient Egypt without slave labor. No society could afford that kind of tax burden. Slavery is still in our modern society. But because it happened to the Jews you refuse to believe it.

How do you figure that? And BTW, you discredit yourself just fine. I'm just trying to show you how you do that. You don't seem very interested in changing your ways to heed what Jesus said either. Fake Christian.

So slavery was OK because of war and debt?

Wow.

Since we still have war and debt today, are you saying slavery should be reintroduced?

No actually, it's not. Anti-semitism is to be prejudiced against someone because they are Jewish. It has nothing to do with slavery. Duh.

sorry for proving you wrong , in such a public forum ..
Was she like some of our little diva princesses around here and have a bunch of scribes following her around while she was dating Joseph, so that they could write down every word she uttered, kinda like Justin Beiber?

They already knew which girl was going to be "the queen for the day" so they stayed on her heels till god impregnated her?

You guys act like every biblical character had a host of scribes writing down every thought and uttered word, even before they were even famous. Does that make sense to anybody? Or would you think, okey, this happened, so maybe they said this or that or lets make up something that fits the case. Easy to write if you already know what happened. Right?

The Egyptians did have slaves, although many of the laborers were also paid and volunteers too. They may have had some Jewish slaves too. But there is no evidence that they systematically enslaved Jews specifically. Sorry, but that is a historical fact.

Really? What corporation can buy and sell people as property, and can beat them unto death, as is described in the Bible?

Sorry, but no, the slavery in the Bible has no modern equivalence, and it is really amazing that you are trying to pain me as an anti-semite when you are being an apologist for something like slavery. Give me a break.

Robert_G._Ingersoll

After the war, he served as Illinois Attorney General. He was a prominent member of the Republican Party and, though he never held an elected position, he was nonetheless an active participant in politics. According to Robert Nisbet, Ingersoll was a "staunch conservative Republican."[6] His speech nominating James G. Blaine for the 1876 presidential election was unsuccessful, as Rutherford B. Hayes received the Republican nomination, but the speech itself, known as the "Plumed Knight" speech, was considered a model of political oratory.

You are simply (I mean that both ways) being obstinate.

Most primitive cultures utilized slavery. As they develop, other methods of dealing with the situations are used. In fact, Christianity introduced that change.

You keep trying to condemn an ancient, defunct practice while excusing the murder of children for convenience. That's both depraved and perverted, not to mention hypocritical!

Then there is the 'rational atheist' oxymorons condemning the tax exempt status of Churches who are actively helping primarily atheists in their own communities RIGHT NOW, while ignoring the pillaging of poor people by our own government through Lotteries.

Looks like the moral high ground of 'rational atheist' oxymorons is the Mariana Trench.

And if we fell off that moral pinnacle and landed on their IQ, we'd die...
