If you are not one of god's chosen, you are not allowed to quote the bible!
There are 38,000+ sects of god's chosen, they can't even agree on whether jesus is god or not, but they are the fu[kin' chosen and you best not fu[king forget it!
Now stop quoting the bible! You are just trying to make our god look bad!
Sorry that I had to get ROTC tough on you.
No problem I loved ROTC. It was a hell of a lot of fun.

Very good teacher, I agree! Wow, she was smart & logical and taught you all something very valuable.
Now use that information here.
God did not own slaves.
God was not a slave owner.
In your religion, what happens to a person who simply does not believe in your god? They are sent to hell for eternity, right?

If the blaspheme the holy spirit, they are damned to hell for eternity, right?

In your religion, god owns you and can put you where ever he wants. Is that not slavery?

God did not condone beating someone to death.
Read this very slowly! What happens to the master who beat his slave to death, IF THE SLAVE SUFFERS FOR A DAY OR TWO before dying?

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)

Here's a clue, NOTHING! Your god says that nothing should happen to the master. The slave was his property to do with what he liked.

Exactly! Man wrote the bible.

Yes. And that law, legally protected by the courts of the day, was revolutionary.
You will have to explain that one in more detail. A slave was protected, as long as he died straight away and did not suffer.

If a god gives you a number of rules concerning slaves and how you can own them for life and never states that you cannot own slaves, what does that mean to you?

Technically, in ancient Hebrew it was a 24 hour time frame, not a day or two.
Brilliant! That completely undermines my entire point! LOL! Now show me where god says that a day or two really only means 24 hours.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
What did God do? Really, why are you so stuck on "God demanded slavery"?
Again, you must lie to try to divert from the facts. If you cannot produce the post where I stated, "God demanded slavery", then be a man about it and admit that you lied.

That is bullshit. Name one nation that did not have a social strata. Name all the nations that have ever existed.

Slavery. Try to keep up.

WHOOO-HOOO! You CAN learn!

And man is fallible
I'll will tell you again.

I don't know, you won't answer.

What did God say about slavery?

Don't assume that just because it is written in the Bible, it is a "law from God".

God did NOT force or condone Lot's daughters getting pregnant by him, but it is in the Bible....

So, I'll ask you ONE LAST TIME- What did God say about slaves?

There's where your mistake is, right there.

Try to understand that what is recorded in the Bible is not all "law" for us to follow, a lot of it is merely record.

With your illogic, we are "instructed" to not eat of the Tree of Knowledge because it is written in the Bible.........

And that underscores the skeptic's point, doesn't it? Christians think they can call the Bible the Word Of God, but then dodge out of specifics within as the words of fallible men when confronted with difficult passages. Unless you've got a copy that clearly delineates God's words from man's words, what we have left is just a nice collection of Judeo/Christian philosophy.

Your weren't here to observe so you really can't say either of these are NOT possibilities. Of course you may still keep you supreme creator theory and just one of many.
Since all logic and deductions are based on present day observations in this time and place, then you simply can NOT know with any certainly that your imaginary being has anything to do with anything.
I think you stretched your brain too much in the past doing those convolutions.

As a human being you see yourself as something special. You pay li[p service to just evolving from matter, but you really feel at the top of the heap. You are special, you can investigate and determine and pass judgments on everything else, even though you just happen to be made up of materials aligned in a certain way. You really aren't in touch with what you proclaim. You think too much for your capabilities. Gets you stuck in loops.

I see humans beings, myself included, as being constructs serving the purpose of something higher on the ladder. My ego is under much better control than yours.

As I said before, I am a technician. I recognize machinery. We are machines. Worrying and guessing about what constructed us is beyond our abilities. The environment provided for us by this higher force will determine what we do.

"beyond our abilities"? You mean now or forever? Only a intellectually defeated person would say, "beyond our abilities", so let's forget about it. We would still be living in trees if we thought like you.

Do we have a cure for that?

No, it is beyond our abilities, so we quit looking.

What the hell are you a tech on?
