Just because it’s fucked up to deny the right of a child to live doesn’t mean that your god thinks the same way.
First, he says:
Exodus 20:13 (New King James Version)
****See footnote below this post)****
13 “You shall not murder.
And then contradicts himself:
Ezekiel 9:5-7 (New King James Version)
5 To the others He said in my hearing, “Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity. 6 Utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children and women; but do not come near anyone on whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary.” So they began with the elders who were before the temple. 7 Then He said to them, “Defile the temple, and fill the courts with the slain. Go out!” And they went out and killed in the city.
Isaiah 13:15-18 (New King James Version)
15 Everyone who is found will be thrust through,
And everyone who is captured will fall by the sword.
16 Their children also will be dashed to pieces before their eyes;
Their houses will be plundered
And their wives ravished.
17 “ Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them,
Who will not regard silver;
And as for gold, they will not delight in it.
18 Also their bows will dash the young men to pieces,
And they will have no pity on the fruit of the womb;
Their eye will not spare children.
1 Samuel 15:2-3 (New King James Version)
2 Thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘I will punish Amalek for what he did to Israel, how he ambushed him on the way when he came up from Egypt. 3 Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.’”
Hosea 13:16 (New King James Version)
16 Samaria is held guilty,
For she has rebelled against her God.
They shall fall by the sword,
Their infants shall be dashed in pieces,
And their women with child ripped open.
Numbers 5:17-21 (New King James Version)
17 The priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel, and take some of the dust that is on the floor of the tabernacle and put it into the water. 18 Then the priest shall stand the woman before the LORD, uncover the woman’s head, and put the offering for remembering in her hands, which is the grain offering of jealousy. And the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water that brings a curse. 19 And the priest shall put her under oath, and say to the woman, “If no man has lain with you, and if you have not gone astray to uncleanness while under your husband’s authority, be free from this bitter water that brings a curse. 20 But if you have gone astray while under your husband’s authority, and if you have defiled yourself and some man other than your husband has lain with you”— 21 then the priest shall put the woman under the oath of the curse, and he shall say to the woman—“the LORD make you a curse and an oath among your people, when the LORD makes your thigh rot and your belly swell;
And with all that said, why NOT help send the little ones to your sick, depraved god’s domain?
Just look at them…
HOW could you follow a god that ordered people to massacre these precious little things? Is this what a “loving” god would tolerate and allow to happen?
Think — For Yourself.
****The New King James Version replaced “kill” (from the King James Version) with “murder.”****
Exodus 20:13 (King James Version)
13Thou shalt not kill.
Just saw this ridiculous apologetic (redundancy much?) on some kids’ Bible TV show and felt like making a cartoon strip version of it:
Feel the Christian love.
Evil? Where Does Such a Thing Come From?
It never ceases to amuse me just how apologists like to use the “vacuum analogy” when responding to the statement that if evil is caused by “The Devil,” and “The Devil” came from Yahweh, then Yahweh certainly allowed “evil” to exist. (Oh, but wait: if there was no “evil” then we’d all be ROBOTS!!!) Do you really think that belief in “some red guy with an arrow-pointed tail carrying a silly little trident” would prevent us from being “robots”…?
No. Incorrect. “Evil” comes from nature; animals always display this “evil” that religious fanatics spew about because in nature it is all a matter of life and death through survival: the strong shall prevail and reproduce as the weak perish like mosquitoes. For other animals to cause “evil” they would need a “Devil” to represent their enemy, which Christianity has failed to provide. Therefore, these animals are “robots,” even though they share emotions alike ourselves. What’s the difference, other than threats of “burning in Hell” with “some red guy with an arrow-pointed tail carrying a silly little trident”?
As humans, we have been “evil” long before religions came around because we desired (and still do) the power of superiority; this has nothing to do with “some red guy with an arrow-pointed tail carrying a silly little trident” because humans are capable of showing different emotions and personalities.We are “evil” because we want to win the fight and not lose — and what could be wrong with that? It just shows that the desire for power and recognition is a GOAL in life; we want to apply a meaning to each and everyone of us because life is what we make it out to be.
Now, tell me how “some red guy with an arrow-pointed tail carrying a silly little trident” has ANYTHING to do with why we experience these emotions? Honestly, I’m very fucking glad we do; we feel better about ourselves by putting down those who also put us down. What’s wrong with that? Why can’t we experience these natural emotions? If Yahweh wants us to adore him, then why the need for “some red guy with an arrow-pointed tail carrying a silly little trident” in the first place?
The “but otherwise we’d be robots!” argument is a silly one because nature has shown us that non-human animal lifeforms TOO display these emotions. Try cuddling a pet dog and watch the other one whimper or rage in jealousy over the other — this is also possible with humans. So, why must these animals be fortunate enough to share emotions that us humans would be prosecuted for? I find religion to be quite an ironic world. And no, Christianity is no more a thing of “non-religious faith” than Islam is “just some religion” (in the eyes of Christian fundamentalists). In fact, both religious share similar traits of violence, pedophilia, incest, misogyny, hatred of homosexuals (the people who “chose” to be attracted to the same sex one day while waking up), and many more. How can religion look so “good” when all these flaws are present?
To conclude, again I shall say that “evil” being caused by “some red guy with an arrow-pointed tail carrying a silly little trident” is nothing more than a figment of your imagination caused by fear (much like the phobia of sleeping in the dark without a nightlight). And it is this “fear” that continues to grow and expand by word of mouth. Savages harvest on this “fear” by telling their children that if they do not believe in Yahweh (or some other sky fairy) then they will be spending the rest of their lives with “some red guy with an arrow-pointed tail carrying a silly little trident.”
Christianity is purely pathetic. Maybe it’s time more people open their eyes and look around them; this world is not perfect and life is what each and everyone of us makes it out to be, whether we want to live a life of “evil” (such as participating in the Gay Pride Parades or a therapist convincing a troubled believer that fearing a “loving” deity like Yahweh is completely irrational) or believe in this heap of garbage. You choose how you want to live. Not me. And you can’t tell me what I should do with my life, so fuck off.
