Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

If she is not a virgin the men in town are to stone her death. If she is raped the rapist is to pay her daddy 50 shackles and marry her because she is damaged goods.

Your god commanded his people to take slaves, rape children and put infants to the sword.

What a monster you worship!

Blacksheep #149223 {The bible god stated that girls who lost their virginity before marriage were to be stone or burned to death. Most of the world does not believe that is proper or moral anymore.
Now since the bible god said to do it and most of us ignore him, that should tell you something about the bible god!}
The scripture you referenced doesn’t say that any woman who is not a virgin should be stoned. You only took a small portion of the scripture that does not tell the entire story. This scripture you referenced is about a dispute resolution as a result of a married man making the claim his wife was not a virgin when he married her. Such accusations are a result of two people who are obviously not getting along. Or the possibility he married the town whore and no longer loves her.(Deuteronomy 22)
Where there was proven a false accusation against a woman the man is whipped and fined.
In cases of rape the woman was spared and the man is stoned.
In cases of fornication. The man must marry the woman and can’t divorce her.
It has been my pleasure to shoot down in flames your misinterpretations.

No a rattlesnake is by far morally superior to your god. Never has a rattlesnake forced trillions to suffer and die because a woman ate a magical apple.

What a monster you worship.

Let's see if the Hovind rip off or even you will finally answer my question. I am willing to bet he dodges it and runs away from it much like you do.

Your god ordered his people to take slaves, rape women and put every infant to the sword. Is this moral?

Lame dodge in 3...2...1...

If you are talking about abortion, I think it's immoral in most cases especially as birth control.

Rape was against the law and still is.

Slaves were permitted this is true but not by kidnapping.

Your god ordered infants sucking at their mother's teat to be out to the sword.

Your god ordered his people rape and capture women of places they went to war with. Raping a non believer was fine with your god. Raping a believer cost you 50 sheckles.

Your god proudly advocated slavery even Jesus and Paul in the NT advocates slavery even commanding a run away to return to his Christian master.

Are these factual occurrences in the bible moral or immoral?

Rape was illegal and yes it’s immoral. Punishable by death in the bible. God never ordered anyone to be raped, ever. Name one person that God ordered to be raped.

Herod the Great ordered the killing of children a fact that eludes you which makes me think if it is ordered by man then you think it’s moral. If it is ordered by God you think it’s immoral.

Pharaoh ordered the killing of children. You never mentioned that.

The United States killed children by dropping the A-bomb. You never mentioned that.

The ATF and FBI killed children in Waco. You never said anything about that.

Timothy McVeigh killed children in Oklahoma City, no mention of that.

Then the Newtown incident, no word from you on that issue.

I think the killing of children is immoral regardless who or when. If God ordered me in war to do so I would try to plead to spare them. It has been proven that a righteous man can plead before God and negotiate with him.

Nope, in this country you're not given that kind of free will until you reach the age of 18.(You didn't this?)

As expected typical Christhole.

Well so back to my original comment your screen name is stolen from a stupid made for TV movie! How lame! Stop scampering.

Once again I have factually crushed you half wit.
Why that's just too funny! You wasted all this time and effort over one little remark I made. I never claimed it was a Russian word, I said you don't know what it means in Russian. I did not say I knew what it meant. LOL

I played a little word game that atheist play all the time. LOL

Keep digging! Someday you'll wake up.

LOL

What a dolt.

So why does the free will of a child rapist/murderer always take precedence over the free will of the innocent child that gets killed? Is the essence of your religion injustice?
