The Bible clearly states that "thou shalt not suffer a witch to live". It directs one to a) believe in witches and b) to kill them. It has many other very direct and clear abominable instructions.

When you decide to interpret the Bible or other 'inspired' book, you are using your own ethics and morality to accept, reject, or modify the instructions therein. If you just blindly follow them, you are irrational.
Still your interpretation.
There's not much more to it.
My interpretation of what? A direct statement?

RE: Atheist Promotional Videos?
It doesn't add up to YOU Ideasonscribe.
The term "misinterpret" is based on who's opinion? Yours vs the Pope vs an Atheist perhaps? Don't forget all the other "mis"-interpretations that COULD be added.

The bible clearly indicates that witches and demons exist and that you should kill them. Is that a misinterpretation not to be taken literally? Cherry picking again to blame?
Yet, the bible does not provide in ANY way ANY method to determine who is and who is not a witch. None.
So, negative consequences are the result. This is a clear example. Don't see how you can worm out of it, but go ahead. You will anyway.

If religion and the bible did not spout and spread the meme, stupid and frightfully deadly things like witch burning would not occur.
Ya see, it's like this. We, as in Science and rational thinking people, have a method to ferret out truth.
We use it constantly and have gained great benefit by it. You have too.

Religion and your entire blabbering ancient text has none. Your belief system has constantly held back humanity and we have gained little benefit from it.
The Great Absent One has given humanity NO method(s) whatsoever, NOTHING to determine what is and what is not true, good or beneficial for a happy civilization to grow. Just lots of weird shit like witches. I mean, we had to find out the hard way that poison ivy itches not to mention a few other things.

Instead, the false faith you perpetuate spreads deadly memes (like witches) yet you defend them to the continued detriment of innocent 72 year old grandmothers. (see the video. Ama's horrible story begins about 2:50 or so with links in the description)
Go ahead, defend your silly position to Ama Ahima/Hemma's kids and grand kids that you think your side is still right ... Go and tell them it was all a misinterpretation!... if you really think that it is.
Nah. You will keep up the spin. You have to tell bigger lies to keep the original lie going.
Or, you could just denounce the entire matter and tear it out of the "good book" for the betterment of the next reader.





Yeah, I blabber a little, but the point was made. Religion, god, and the bible utilize NO method to ferret out truth. Just phony myths, parables and dogma which obviously leads to stupid and dangerous behavior. I simply challenge them to think that one through a bit. Using faith is a crappy method for fact gathering.

It's all in your head, because there is no other place it could be.

Ok, well I've stirred up some pissed off individuals.
I'll go somewhere else for now.
I'm sure anything I say from here on will just agitate even more.
So, just do what you do.

Coffee, while it can make a zombie look and function like a human being, doesn't actually turn them into humans...

Religion is an excuse; not a cause. Humans are the cause. You have to be a human first before you can be religious. It's silly to attribute anything negative or positive religion because people and their actions are the reason for an end product; nothing else.

Gonna have to agree with Eternal here. We may be on the opposite side when it comes to religious beliefs, but he has said everything I think in regards of pushing an agenda on people.

Somewhat agree, I think religion can influence people to a point, (Ie hitler killing gays) however as you see today, you have a choice to ignore your religion's teachings and go things about your way.
Here is the problem with that line of thinking. People generally believe that if you do disobey the religious creeds, your eternally fucked. Not only does RELIGION order you to do things, but it has a clause of which if you DON"T DO THE THINGS, YOU WILL BE DAMNED TO HELL.

religious violence is, and should be blamed on a relgion that enforces a cruel, sadistic punishment to be carried out when you should and want to disobey.

I would like to engage in the discussion, but I am more of a Defend the existence of God and not so much ready yet to Defend against allegations of Scripture. I've studied more on the evidence for a creator because I first wanted to know if I believe in God in the first place. When it comes to going deep into the interpretations and Greek/Aramaic language interpretations of Scripture, I think I'll just worsen your already aggressive view against it.

Since I see that I would do no good in this conversation and in fact would do harm, then do you really want me to continue in it?
No, you guys can just continue on believing what you will about Scripture and maybe someone with a better grasp than myself will come along and do a much better job.
I need to get myself a better understanding of this topic before I talk about something I'm not prepared to talk about.
