True, bats are not birds, the earth doesn't sit on pillars, and rabbits don't chew their cud.Ancient literature was compiled when men knew nothing of science.
They suffered horrible fates from diseases and natural earth catastrophes ... so what they wrote came from their experiences OF suffering. The average life expectancy was about 29 years of age.
It's common sense that their literature would reflect the notion that the gods were punishing offenders and that there would be the same literal hells in hereafters. Their lives on earth WERE living hells.
But science has explained that gods are not killing humans with lightning bolts, et cetera.
I suggest it's time to stop being so silly as to believe that a god is there to welcome you to eternal bliss and reject other souls to eternal hells.
All that was harmless.
But Jesus mocking those who practiced good hygene by washing their hands before eating!
How much harm did that do throughout the ages?
Oh, and "thou shalt not suffer a witch to live"
So many goodies from the delusional angry god.
Mine is the only true God. My God odesn't tell us to harm anyone.
peace and love,
