My two cents as a reply to:
'What strikes me funny is that evolution has all kinds holes and steps on it's own foot however the bible is the only doctrine that no one can find
any contradicting aspects
of it, it's very clear and in unity (what's remarkable that the book took thousands years by several writers to
complete )but you refuse listen to it because why? "mystical creature" haha ok whatever floats your boat.'
As if I should believe in:
a murderer, a rapist, and:
Deuteronomy: All nations shall be terrorized by the followers of Yahweh. 2:25
no contradicting aspects here..
• Because God liked Abel's animal sacrifice more than Cain's vegetables, Cain kills his brother Abel in a fit of religious jealousy. 4:8
• "I will destroy ... both man and beast."
God is angry. He decides to destroy all humans, beasts, creeping things, fowls, and "all flesh wherein there is breath of life." He plans to drown
them all. 6:7, 17
• "Every living substance that I have made will I destroy."
God repeats his intention to kill "every living substance ... from off the face of the earth." But why does God kill all the innocent animals? What
had they done to deserve his wrath? It seems God never gets his fill of tormenting animals. 7:4
• "All flesh died that moved upon the earth."
God drowns everything that breathes air. From newborn babies to koala bears -- all creatures great and small, the Lord God drowned them all. 7:21-23
• God sends a plague on the Pharaoh and his household because the Pharaoh believed Abram's lie. 12:17
• God tells Abram to kill some animals for him. The needless slaughter makes God feel better. 15:9-10
• Hagar conceives, making Sarai jealous. Abram tells Sarai to do to Hagar whatever she wants. "And when Sarai dealt hardly with her, she fled."
• "I will not destroy it for ten's sake."
I guess God couldn't find even ten good Sodomites because he decides to kill them all in Genesis 19. Too bad Abraham didn't ask God about the
children. Why not save them? If Abraham could find 10 good children, toddlers, infants, or babies, would God spare the city? Apparently not. God
doesn't give a damn about children. 18:32
• Lot refuses to give up his angels to the perverted mob, offering his two "virgin daughters" instead. He tells the bunch of angel rapers to "do
unto them [his daughters] as is good in your eyes." This is the same man that is called "just" and "righteous" in 2 Peter 2:7-8. 19:7-8
• God kills everyone (men, women, children, infants, newborns) in Sodom and Gomorrah by raining "fire and brimstone from the Lord out of heaven."
Well, almost everyone -- he spares the "just and righteous" Lot and his family. 19:24
• Lot's nameless wife looks back, and God turns her into a pillar of salt. 19:26
• God threatens to kill Abimelech and his people for believing Abe's lie. 20:3-7
• Sarai tells Abraham to "cast out this bondwoman and her son." God commands him to "hearken unto her voice." So Abraham abandons Hagar and
Ishmael, casting them out into the wilderness to die. 21:10-14
• God orders Abraham to kill Isaac as a burnt offering. Abraham shows his love for God by his willingness to murder his son. But finally, just
before Isaac's throat is slit, God provides a goat to kill instead. 22:2-13
• Abraham shows his willingness to kill his son for God. Only an evil God would ask a father to do that; only a bad father would be willing to do
• Dinah, the daughter of Jacob, is "defiled" by a man who seems to love her dearly. Her brothers trick all of the men of the town and kill them
(after first having them all circumcised), and then take their wives and children captive. 34:1-31
• "The terror of God was upon the cities that were round about them." 35:5
• "And Er, Judah's firstborn, was wicked in the sight of the Lord; and the Lord slew him." What did Er do to elicit God's wrath? The Bible doesn't
say. Maybe he picked up some sticks on Saturday. 38:7
• After God killed Er, Judah tells Onan to "go in unto they brother's wife." But "Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and ... when he went
in unto his brother's wife ... he spilled it on the ground.... And the thing which he did displeased the Lord; wherefore he slew him also." This
lovely Bible story is seldom read in Sunday School, but it is the basis of many Christian doctrines, including the condemnation of both masturbation
and birth control. 38:8-10
• After Judah pays Tamar for her services, he is told that she "played the harlot" and "is with child by whoredom." When Judah hears this, he says,
"Bring her forth, and let her be burnt." 38:24
• Joseph interprets the baker's dream. He says that the pharaoh will cut off the baker's head, and hang his headless body on a tree for the birds
to eat. 40:19
• God brought a seven year, "very greivous" famine on the whole earth for no apparent reason (except maybe to make Joseph wealthy). 41:25-32, 54
God wants to be remembered forever for the mass murder of little children. 10:2
These verses clearly show that the mass murder of innocent children by God was premeditated. 11:4-6 (see 12:29-30)
God will kill the Egyptian children to show that he puts "a difference between the Egyptians and Israel." 11:7
God explains to Moses that he intends to "smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast. 12:12
After God has sufficiently hardened the Pharaoh's heart, he kills all the firstborn Egyptian children. When he was finished "there was not a house
where there was not one dead." Finally, he runs out of little babies to kill, so he slaughters the firstborn cattle, too. 12:29
"God ... shall fight for you." 1:30
"The hand of the LORD was against them, to destroy them from among the host, until they were consumed."
God killed all the Israelite soldiers -- slowly. It took him 38 years to kill them all, but he finally got the job done. 2:14-16
"A land of giants: giants dwelt therein in old time ... but the Lord destroyed them." 2:20
"The Lord destroyed them before them" -- the general treatment of the people who were supposedly displaced by the Israelites. 2:21-22
"I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess it, and contend with him in battle." 2:24
All nations shall be terrorized by the followers of Yahweh. 2:25
God hardened the heart of the king of Heshbon and so that he could have him and all of his people killed. 2:30
At God's instructions, the Israelites "utterly destroyed the men, women, and the little ones" leaving "none to remain." 2:33-36
The Israelites, with God's help, kill all the men, women, and children of every city. 3:3-6
"And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city." 3:6
Moses promises Joshua that God will massacre kings and kingdoms for him, too. 3:21
Nothing but friendship and love to be found.
