stolen from reddit, but such a simple way to rationalize a disbelief in god
"We can no longer afford the luxury of political correctness. When religion causes violence, its root claims must be challenged." - Sam Harris
Churches, temples, mosques everywhere, but atheists billboards go to far.
plain and simple, hallucinations of a bunch of desert dwelling uneducated shepherds. Why didn’t god talk to the chinese or anyone else in the world of that time
I don’t get your point. I’ve read this verses in the bible, two different versions at least. I’ve looked them up online, yes, and in their context. I’ve studied the old testament and new testament separately. I understand the ‘context’ everyone keeps talking about. What a lot of people seem to be ignoring is that the ‘context’ doesn’t explain why God, in his all-knowing wisdom, decided to make the moral guidelines for humanity context specific. Don’t you think that if the bible is truly what it is claimed to be (the written moral compass laid out by God Himself) then it wouldn’t be context specific? Wouldn’t not have to rely on context but rather be a universal code that can be applied to any context? Like rape? Isn’t it agreed upon by most that rape is bad no matter what? Why isn’t that included in the ten commandments? Have you ever wondered why a book like the bible isn’t clearer on what you can and can’t do but is rather so open to multiple interpretations? Context and all? Why didn’t God set us up with better verses? Why does everything have to be a fuckin test? Literally every little thing, every little verse, line, prayer has to be a test of faith. It’s all just goddamn distraction to keep you thinking about whose interpretation is better rather than realizing the similarities behind this story and the life of Horus. But that’s just my opinion
There’s nothing to oppose, there’s no fight between two things, there just is no monotheistic god
