Because we (humans) SAY it is.

That's all you need for THAT.

Are you seriously this dumb, or did you take special stupid lessons?

In a world without the Tooth Fairy, in which teeth and cavities are derived from men, you really have no objective basis to make toothy judgement on cavities since men determine these things.

You **also** think that Past Life Regression is a real thing.

Still waiting for your proof of this "soul" thingy.

A thing for which you are unable to even **describe**, let alone prove it's real.

Apart from your severely corrupted imagination, of course.

In a world without God in which rights are derived from men you really have no objective basis to make a moral judgement on slavery since men determined these things. Your judgement carries no more weight than your opinion. Their is far more valid because they handled the circumstances as they did based on their time and circumstances. Slavery to them was an act of mercy. Better to be a slave than to be dead. As they used to say,''Better red than dean.''
<quoted text> your reaction is emotional and personal. There is nothing logical in any of it. Seems you are so crippled by emotions you cannot look at it dispassionately or historically. <quoted text> It was regulated for the benefit of the slave. I believe i already pointed that out. You won't discuss this further because you cannot without looking like a loser. Your emotional outrage is pure bluster.
You think killing the slave was OK?

Maybe fun even?

If his god tells him to?*

I have no doubts at all, he would murder his neighbors....

Grind that axe Bob. Because we know you have an axe to grind. A chip on the ole shoulder.

Was it because the church wouldn't let you have a relationship as a grown man with a 15 year old girl?

You judge people Bob but how does it feel when you are judged?

By the way, you don't have to answer the last two questions. It's better that way for the audience.

Dude, I thought you were dead, or gone.

I thought you had reached the end of the trail, or rode off into the sunset.

Whaddup?

Being a slave, is not as bad as to have to face your fate. Hell is not that bad either. Thank God you are wrong.

If you had one you would know it. I don't see why you keep posting this my answer won't change. I don't get why you keep asking someone questions when for whatever reason you do not believe their answers. Then when I point out you are socially challenged I am mean, or when you respond and it is not close to what I was saying, I mock your comprehension, that is mean of me also. My favorite was when you told me "I was calling you subhuman when I said you don't have a soul." Yet you were the one that started this "You have no soul" finger pointing. I am happy to say I know you are wrong.

I think Bob would be best off if he first learned to lose his hatred for the Christian/Catholic religion. Once he gets on with his life he could find a workshop of some sort, most likely it would be amongst youths, where he could work on his comprehension skills. From my readings of his post, his hatred consumes him to a level, that basic comprehension is a challenge. As much as I like my idea, I think Bob's hatred will not permit it. Instead he will remain the crying loser he is.

We all share a godless reality - its just that people who buy into cults like creationism choose to lie to themselves and others.

Hell isn't real and its part of your cult's weak story / lie, just like the god you can't prove and continue to lie about

Souls aren't real until you can prove them.

Its a shame that you lie about aboslutely everything you cannot prove.

When you're able to prove the god you lie about here & correct your bible, removing the hatred against atheists, women, slaves and sheer scientific ignorance, you will win at life!

Yes, I have proved it to myself, I can't prove it to someone that either lacks comprehension or a soul in the first place. It is sad you may be right. Soulless one.
