Totally. It's funny that they would believe the Jews would walk and walk and walk and totally not realize that murder was bad until the 10 commandments came.
Oh, surprise!
"Sorry Aharaon, I shouldn't have killed your wife. I just didn't realize it was bad until now."
"Neither did I. Let's just wait and see what the punishment is and then I'll emotionally react."
And if the Jews had not been overrun by the ex-Jew Catholic military power ... they and their one-god religion would have been a force with which to reckon, because as is plain from the study of history and the behavior of Catholics and Protestants on this forum ... those in the monotheistic religions ALWAYS want others to join their own religions as being based on the one and only universal truth.

Note the words "forced conversion."
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>

The Maccabees also spelled Machabees Machabi (Latin) or Machado from Latin (marculatum) that means "Hammer" (Greek/) were a Jewish rebel army that took control of Judea, which had been a client state of the Seleucid Empire. They founded the Hasmonean dynasty, which ruled from 164 BCE to 63 BCE, reasserting the Jewish religion, expanding the boundaries of the Land of Israel, by conquest, which included instances of forced conversion, reducing the influence of Hellenism and Hellenistic Judaism.

Actually studied or become a believer of? Those are very different experiential realities.
You can't define all religions as falling under one package. I know that's the goal of many theologians - and kind of nice to be inclusive - but the simple reality is that most religions are mutually exclusionary.
If your religion is "true," then everyone else's is false. Hence all religions are false.
Although, from an anthropology point of view, religions are cultural systems. The create "ways of experiencing" the world around believers. In that sense, all religions are true.
Very well stated!

Yeah, I don't agree with you. Faith is a learned way of thinking about reality. It's intellectual laziness, hence religions promote that way.

Peace

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen(Heb 11:1)

Consider for a moment that it was the Church that established the centers of learning in Europe for Universities, that taught intellectual pursuits. It was not atheists. And the Enlightenment which emerged out of Italy, was of the Church as well.

Your re-definition of faith is merely to distance yourself from reality. And that is an intellectual deception.

....Its NOT world history its christian biblical history ONLY!.
....Flavius Josephus wasn't born until 37 AD 10 years after Jesus supposedly died and today what many scholars claim some of his writings were added by others. Why would a devout Jew write about Jesus the Christ (christianity)
.....Philo the philosopher.....a real witness but saw nothing!!
The Catholic theologians wanted readers to believe that many of the Jews supported the new religion ... and that is why the Catholic theologians wrote that nonsense about Jewish "apostles" being filled with JOY concerning their "visions" of the coming of the savior, which is totally ludicrous.

If Jews (faithful to Judaism) could have seen their future, they would have killed that baby that they KNEW when he grew up was going to abandon them for a new religion and in turn cause them centuries of torture and murder.

Ridiculous theology!

Why would you censor Serephema..

I am surprised at your treatment of Serephema in her grief and deeply disappointed at your attitude.....I really expected a better humanitarian attitude of you...

Are we to understand that Your lack of compassion for Serephema stems from the godless attitude that you have gravitated to..

Do you not know that the way you treated her will return upon you own head

I was at Oxford university when Dawkins released his book "The God Delusion" and stumbled upon sever Oxford theologians debating the book. They told me it was "preaching to the choir" and overly simplistic.
So I said "I don't think so, but prove me wrong and answer his simple critique." After that, I picked up my beer and left the table full of theologians arguing amongst themselves, unable to answer the "simple" critique. hahaha, it was wonderful!
What a useless discipline.
Hidingfromyou

I read "The God Delusion", and found it disappointing. It was on the shelf for awhile, I skimmed it again, and then threw it in the garbage where it sits somewhere in a waste site.....

Theologians can argue over how many angels dance on the head of a pin for as long as they want..., just differing beliefs.

As for Dawkins, he was rather pathetic in his arguments that the universe is meaningless(I have watched him several times in debates, until he got what the attention he needed for status and money) But he does reveal the rather poor level at Oxford and why Harvard is preferred by many now....

Those words "not seen" is what the theologians counted on you buying as universal truth.

It's not by chance that they created the gods as "invisible."

That way their religious teachings could never be DISPROVED.

The Muslim theologians also teach their devotees to have FAITH in what they teach is definitely universal truth.

USE your brain for other things than self-indulgence, and you will see the BROAD picture of how cults work their "magic" in brains to control you in states of FEAR concerning hells and devils.

Your "concern" about her tender feelings rings hollow, as you believe that all those who are not of your Protestant faith deserve eternal HELL.

And your reference to homosexuals as being "perverts" shows your REAL character as a KJV-thumping arrogant FRAUD who believes you are a GOD!

I hope that some day our young generations will see the horrors of religion in its true light.

I suggest that homosexuals have been the most brutalized of all humans by those in religion. I would apologize to them on behalf of humanity ... but I can only do my part and support them in their struggles for equal rights ... which is what I have always done.

May we all one day look back at out history and shudder with revulsion at how humans used their books that they treasured as being holy ... to again and again and again harm others.

In 1779, Thomas Jefferson proposed a law that would mandate castration for gay men and mutilation of nose cartilage for gay women. But that's not the scary part. Here's the scary part: Jefferson was considered a liberal. At the time, the most common penalty on the books was death.

Because she belongs to the Greek Orthodox church ... according to your theology ... she will be locked out of your Protestant heaven to spend eternity in HELL.

You should be preaching at her as you do at the homosexuals for being EVIL fodder for your Protestant DEVIL ... you CREEPY FRAUD!!!

I don't fear a supposed afterlife, but I would be dishonest if I said that I don't feel repulsion at physical and emotional suffering.

To watch a child suffering from "for instance" severe cases of autism should pull at the heartstrings of the most cold-hearted human. Pounding their own heads on the floor or against walls is a terrible sight to see, and it makes me wonder if death for them would be a kindness!

I simply had to quit fooling my self that a god exists, because the alternative for me would have been to detest the god for not doing anything to stop the suffering.

Did you ever wonder why a holy god would give a Hitler a soul to travel into a human body ... knowing that the man would grow up to be insane and be the cause of such destruction???

Your devil had no part in creating that "soul."

THINK about it!

The theology claims that a god created Adam and Eve in physical form from the dust of the earth. Supposedly their little spirits were minding their own business in heaven. Then while on earth, the god gave their spirits “souls” to travel back to heaven or to hell when they were done all their suffering on earth. It was their choice of which way they wanted to go … to eternal bliss … or eternal suffering.

I mean REALLY … that humans don’t laugh at such ludicrous theology amazes me.

Even as a child I thought it was laughable.

Widows are not put to death by those in religion. Homosexuals ARE put to death by insane religionists.

And I suggest that if you had the power in your hands ... you would believe that killing homosexuals would be serving the best interests of your HOLY god ... you religious IDIOT!!!

You have a heart of ICE and a brain of fermented religious-infected brain-cells.

Does God want to shout ... or is it the DEVIL that is making you rant and rave while trying to pretend you are a holy god???

Maybe you should check those KJV scriptures and see which ones you will choose "this time" to fit your self-indulgent agenda.
