This is incontrovertible proof that God is evil. God does not live by his own golden rule.

OK. So, firstly, your plan to show how bad the fictional God is, to a religious person, does not work on that actual person.

Secondly, the lurkers on a science based skeptic forum are unlikely to be seeking religious guidance from skeptics. Angel has been a lurker here for over a decade and still is totally religious and spamming stories about her "God" and "Jesus". If we show her the bad things her fictional "God" has done she will simply spam more stuff about her "God".

The better scenario is to eliminate any reference to her "God" and demand she only responds with educated scientific reasoning. Eventually she will work out her "God" may as well be a pink unicorn or a Leprechaun or Santa Claus or any other fictional character, to us Skeptics.

Matthew Ellard wrote:You are arguing that fictional religious narratives are good evidence to use against other fictional religious narratives. That hasn't worked for 2,500 years. It is better to drop any connection to religion and let people fully replace religious philosophy with the rational scientific explanation. If you don't do that we will still be arguing "How many Angels can logically dance on a pin?" or "Can God make a stone so heavy God can't lift it?". That would be a complete waste of time. :D

Gnostic Bishop wrote:A religious belief is not fiction to the believer and to call him delusional just kills any effort to show him that what he believes is immoral.
It is a fiction to the religious person. If two religious idiots can argue about "how many angels can dance on a pin" and both remain religious, then that is clear evidence that you plan to show that "God" is a wicked person simply does not work and has not worked.

Gnostic Bishop wrote:You go ahead and do your thing and I will do mine.

You won't make a dent. Angel will simply go into her defensive mode and say "God works in mysterious ways". Indeed most members here have put Angel on ignore, because Angel cannot respond in a logical manner and is unable to see any paradoxes in her Biblical "God". She simply ignores those arguments.

You are correct and that is why I post more for the lurkers than for her.

People will see how poorly she apologises for her God and that is good enough for me.

Actually Angel is correct for a change. There was no biblical flood so his fictional god did not kill millions of innocent children.

I completely get that. It's not even difficult. It's practically common knowledge.

But you aren't saying "do something", you aren't even asking "what should be done".

What you are saying is, "Do exactly as I do. Agree with me. Think like me. My reasoning is sound and your's is not."

I think you time line is off.

That reciprocity rule is way older than Christianity. There is nothing in Christianity that was not plagiarized from other older belief systems, except perhaps substitutionary atonement, although most older religions thought that punishing the guilty and not the innocent was the moral thing to do.

I am aware that it is all fiction but if children can determine who is good and who is evil in their fairy tales, we adults should be able to do the same in our fairy tales for adults which is basically what religions are.

If you are not going to read scriptures literally, then there is no God or Jesus either.

And if you are going to read the scriptures literally enough to believe in a real Jesus, then you have to indicate how much of the bible to scrap and how much is truth.

Just what does "read the scriptures literally" mean anyway? I can see some simple answers, like it literally means God created the world in 6 days. But you run into trouble on page 2 with a slightly different creation story. Or if you take the 683 laws literally, how do you handle the contradictions, not to mention the various covenants, however many there are. And there are no literal instructions for getting to heaven.

I like Majid Nawaaz's term "vacuous" reading. It implies that you are reading an isolated passage with no sense of the context, not even of the other canonical scripture that came before it, let alone the historical context, the translations, the copy errors, etc.

Just what does "read the scriptures literally" mean anyway? I can see some simple answers, like it literally means God created the world in 6 days. But you run into trouble on page 2 with a slightly different creation story. Or if you take the 683 laws literally, how do you handle the contradictions, not to mention the various covenants, however many there are. And there are no literal instructions for getting to heaven.

I like Majid Nawaaz's term "vacuous" reading. It implies that you are reading an isolated passage with no sense of the context, not even of the other canonical scripture that came before it, let alone the historical context, the translations, the copy errors, etc.

So genocide and the torture and killing of innocent babies and children is not wrong to you.

Thanks for making my point as to Christianity corrupting the morals of people.

Or more likely independently discovered.

But my timeline is WRT "Moses" versus Jesus.

Confucius didn't say he was God or got it from God etc.

Timeline might still be a bit off though.


Sigh.

The Sumerians taught the Captive Jews how to read and write by having them copy the Sumerian myths.

Ignore expert scholars at your own risk.

I hear you.

I think that vacuous reading are good words to describe what believers are doing when reading their holy books.

Have you ever experienced ~ when something
speaks to you? Then you just had to have it. ;-)
I am like that with knowledge and words.
So they are everywhere are are all out of order.
Out of context. This creates chaos and confusion
in the world. Then people start to fear talking
to each other. Especially when nothing you
say ~ sounds right. The spelling of a common
word ~ all of a sudden ~ doesn't sound right and
you actually have to ask for help spelling it.
I find knowledge in the bible when read
either way as I am able & willing to adapt.

In reality, you can't spell basic word like "whether" and your posts are incoherent and make no sense.

What knowledge did you gain from the Bible concerning your "God" killing all innocent children in the flood? Would that be How to commit genocide? :lol:
