Neat.

he isn’t gender-neutral: Some claim that singular they is unnecessary because he is gender-neutral, and that this whole kerfuffle about singular they being in any way good or useful only came about when “arrogant ideologues began recasting English into heavy artillery to defend the borders of the New Feminist state.”

If you really think that he is gender-neutral, you ought to find nothing wrong with the following sentences:

(3a) At the funeral, everyone was dressed to the nines, each wearing his swankest tie or nicest dress.
(3b) Is it your brother or your sister who can hold his breath for four minutes?

<quoted text>I have no interest in your god being real or not real. That's just stupid and dishonest. I want to know everything that is true, as much as possible. Without demonstrable evidence, and in light of the misuse of the god concept, there is no reason to believe it is anything more than a scam. You claimed anecdotes were used in court. Your explanation above proves how wrong that claim is.
Great. Then you're a non- believer.

Feel better?

<quoted text>How did they carry termites on the ark? There are over 4,000 species of termites. A mature queen can lay 30,000 eggs a day. Do I need to do the extrapolation for you? Termites love them some gopherwood. Did they bring a mound or nests? The queen can not survive outside a mound or nest. Why bring termites, anyway?
Then there are the beetles. No, not the mop-topped cuties from yesteryear, but the 300,000 species of beetles currently known to exist. Their period of gestation and profligate reproduction surpasses that of the termite. They would soon overrun the boat, if not for the cockroaches.
So, the KJv is a Midievel translation but that old time religion of souls and magic rain boats is some damn advanced science. GMAFB.
I just wrote: You staunchly defend certain parts of it and repel and protest others. Atheists do that quote often.

And you proved my point by completely ignoring my post and started rambling on about termites & cockroaches.

lmao there`s just no downside for god with apologists like you out there.

if someone goes to hell for obeying a mistranslated passage(like killing a witch for example) that`s a bit like rough justice isn`t it?

The most powerful entity in the universe couldn`t guarantee an accurate translation of his instructions for living a life as one of his gang?..too bad so sad.

You know that God don't care what you have to say about the bible?
Since you don't care, here:
Psalm 50:16-23
16 But to the wicked person, God says:
“What right have you to recite my laws or take my covenant on your lips?
17 You hate my instruction and cast my words behind you.
18 When you see a thief, you join with him; you throw in your lot with adulterers.
19 You use your mouth for evil and harness your tongue to deceit.
20 You sit and testify against your brother and slander your own mother’s son.
21 When you did these things and I kept silent, you thought I was exactly like you. But I now arraign you and set my accusations before you.
22 “Consider this, you who forget God, or I will tear you to pieces, with no one to rescue you:
23 Those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me, and to the blameless I will show my salvation.”
...you can personally vouch for that particular translation can you? LMFAO

Alright, then. We'll use you beloved KJV version.

Where does the KJV bible instruct ***me*** to kill witches?

No shit, ole chap. That quote was from OCB's link about the use of 'they' & 'he', that's why the author wrote those two sentences using 'he' in lieu of 'they'.

"They are a witch" is not a proper sentence.

"They are witches" is.

"She is a witch" is.

Absolutely not. But "reading it cover to cover", what many of you claim to have done, is not sufficient to say you understand it.

"Seeing" isn't always "believing", though, is it? There will always be people who refuse to believe what they see, but, instead, see what they believe. I suspect you are the latter of the two.

"They are a witch" is not a proper sentence.
"They are witches" is.
"She is a witch" is.
"They are a witch" is certainly a sentence.

for example:

"If a person is involved in the practice of witchcraft then we may draw the following inference. They are a witch."

English appears to be something else on the list of things you haven`t quite mastered...and we all know by now it`s a non exhaustive list.
