wisdums of the bible.
Fellow Atheists,

could yourselves give me some ideas of what to include when discussing or debating about the wisdums of the bible?
l know some and should they be included about the wisdoms of bible? :
1. like encouraging unwashing of hands before a meal
Luke 11:38
wikipedia: "In developing countries, childhood mortality rates related to respiratory and diarrheal diseases can be reduced by introducing simple behavioral changes, such as hand washing with soap. This simple action can reduce the rate of mortality from these diseases by almost 50 per cent.[5]
Hand washing with soap is the single most effective and inexpensive way to prevent diarrhea and acute respiratory infections (ARI), as automatic behavior performed in homes, schools, and communities worldwide. Pneumonia, a major ARI, is the number one cause of mortality among children under five years old, taking the life of an estimated 1.8 million children per year. Diarrhea and pneumonia together account for almost 3.5 million child deaths annually.[6] According to UNICEF, turning hand washing with soap before eating and after using the toilet into an ingrained habit can save more lives than any single vaccine or medical intervention, cutting deaths from diarrhea by almost half and deaths from acute respiratory infections by one-quarter."

2. jesus declares all foods "clean".
foodborne viruses cause over 120K hospitalised illnesses and over 3K deaths per year
Mark 7:14-23
3. 6th commandment not to kill, but encourages killing in countless passages.

thanks

"Clean" refers to kosher animals like cattle, chicken, and lamb. When the NT says all animals are "clean," it's adding pig, camel and shimp to the menu.

It has nothing to do with germs or foodborne viruses.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

RE: wisdums of the bible.
You want the comprehensive list or should we just abbreviate it to 'The oral traditions of Bronze Age tribesmen probably shouldn't be relied upon for all your 21st century needs?'

Flesh and blood of a dead star, slain in the apocalypse of supernova, resurrected by four billion years of continuous autocatalytic reaction and crowned with the emergent property of sentience in the dream that the universe might one day understand itself.

Wrong thread. Facepalm

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
