People here have to deal with a lot of shit. Someone said you were POE and no one could be that brainwashed yet..... read the forums what you said isn't as far gone as some of the crazy ass shit theists have brought in here. So generally people have been trained to not take shit as a result.

To be fair I said you might be trying to engage in satire on the religious nutters, I generally try to give people the benefit of a doubt if you will.

God is a fictional character, but yes, he is a villain.

As the self proclaimed creator of evil, I think, this alone puts him in the bad guy territory.

Killing nearly everything on earth with a flood makes him the most ruthless fictional villain in a book.

So yes, he's a fictional bad guy villain.

What evidence did he show that all others practiced human sacrifice while the Jews did not? Why did you believe that claim?

What reason did he give for Yahweh deciding to tell one specific group to (a) not kill humans as sacrifices and (b) kill everybody who does? Did he explain why the supposedly omnipotent creator of the universe didn't simply tell everybody the same thing? Or fix it so that they didn't want to kill?

You are SO fucking gullible.

Maybe if you pray for the ability to use punctuation you'd be better at this. By the way, the archeological and historical evidence completely contradicts the claim of millions of Jews enslaved in Egypt so you are "studying" a fictional account.

"god" didn't kill anybody. Bronze/iron age tribes fought each other and made up stories to justify their actions and political propaganda is not a new thing.

You should request a name change to gullibleview.

The splinter Hebrews simply stole the Yahweh character from the prior polytheistic Canaanites in which Yahweh was a lesser god under the head God El as part of a divine family.

My guess is that there could have been lots of contributing factors as to why the splinter sect started. City state rivalries, political unrest, even disease. It should not shock anyone if humans simply couldn't figure out the bacterial danger of bathing in blood and drinking blood but some saw death in doing that so made up superstitious answers as to why Yahweh was punishing people for doing it.

It does not matter to me anyway. There are much older religions in any case, and our species was around long before any written religion, and our planet is 4 billion years old, and our universe is 13.8 billion years old.

Humans make up all god/s and all deity claims and all religions.

So this friend tells you a story and then you hop on this forum and ask -"how bout dat?"

[Image: 1ig8dl.jpg]

If god could reveal himself to the Jews about human sacrifice, then why couldn't he reveal himself to the Canaanites and discourage them from human sacrifice?

This is too easy and it highlights how god deliberately chose the genocide route.

Of course this is all a story with no basis in fact, the Jews were Canaanite and the conquests of Joshua were just a story for those Canaanites that wanted their own origins myth apart from the Canaanite tribes they came from.

Mission accomplished Thumbsup

Now if you'll excuse me I may have some new books worth reading.

Steiner was a crackpot with some really strange ideas. But you'll figure that out in short order. Get the books from the library if you can. They aren't worth your money.
