Christianity is a huge, evil lynch mob that was made for the purpose of prosecuting against atheists.

An example was the salem witch trials. The Christians assumed that the people were witches just because and then burned them at steaks.

Another example is the crusades. They also burned good atheists at steaks.

Christians assert that the burden of proof is on us when it is on them, therefore Christianity is a lie!

The Bible advocates genocide, killing egyptian babies, murder, rape, slavery and BURNING GOOD ATHESTS AT STEAKS!!

Christians burn good atheists at steaks!

The Crusades was more of an example of a historical period, rather than the religion of Christianity itself. Furthermore the perpetrators committing these atrocities were acting against the fundamental teachings of Christianity, and its leader.

Christians are no longer "burning atheists at steaks" (correction:stakes)

As for the Bible advocating genocide, the historical and circumstantial context has to be considered. During this period Israel was inhabited by the Canaanites, Amorites, Amelkites, and so on, these were groups that practiced incest, pedophilia, rape, murder, idolatry and child sacrifice; many also displayed violent behaviour towards the Hebrews. One example in particular is when the Amorites refused the Hebrews safe passage and attacked them.

Essentially they were disrespecting the land of Israel and violating G-d's law. What the Torah outlines is not that G-d commanded "genocide" as such but that he asked the Hebrews to drive their inhabitance into another land.

How do you know this stuff? Maybe because the hebrews wrote it? They also claimed to have wandered a handkerchief sized desert for forty years without leaving a single archeological artifact. You know I reckon that on balance of evidence that they are compulsive liars or just folktale creators.

The Crusades were instigated in the name of Christianity and the belief that it was better for someone to undergo a few days of torture, than an eternity of torment. So it wasn't about history or a historical period, it was about attempts to force conversion to Christianity. As for the fundamental teachings of Christianity, these were determined in the 4th century, while the supposed "leader" was said to have lived more than 300-years earlier, yet no one of credibility ever saw him or even heard of him during that time.

True, now they're burning witches. Is that better?

So that justifies, "slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and a-s-s"? One is likely to be just as successful on any ethical grounds to try to justify Hitler's attempt to cleanse the human gene pool.

Essentially they were disrespecting the land of Israel and violating G-d's law. What the Torah outlines is not that G-d commanded "genocide" as such but that he asked the Hebrews to drive their inhabitance into another land.
I can't speak for what the Torah states, but the Bible most clearly shows God commanding "his people" to commit genocide. And genocide is NEVER justified under anything short of pure heartless barbarity.

I'm not disputing that it was ordered by the Catholic Church. What I'm suggesting is that the crusades are also reminiscent of a historical period, in which religious and civil war was abundant.

The implication here is that this happened in past tense, over 700 years ago to exact.

My knowledge of "this stuff" is attributed to having read the Torah and learning about certain archeological findings and historical texts dated back to the time of the Canaanites and Amorites.

What "balance of evidence" are you referring to exactly? So far you have made no citations to evidence, only outlining your opinions on the subject.

If you want to bring your imaginary god into it, he actually ordered the Alleged destruction of these alleged tribes because they allegedly wouldn't worship him.

The title and content of this debate is covering religion, more specifically the Old Testament, so it's inevitable that G-d and reference to G-d (whether you believe him to be imaginary or not) will enter the discussion. Again, the command made by G-d bares little connection to these tribes not worshipping him.

And I thought this was just a useless troll thread in which nothing interesting would be said.

Good reasons for apologizing for genocide, killing every man woman and child...
I'm sure....

I mean look at the story of the calf, God almost killed every last Jewish person (children included) because they maybe kinda turned away when they became desperate...
Then when moses convinced him not to bring such evil down upon his people god only had moses command fratriced so as to slaughter Half of the jewish people's men women and children.

And, consider... that's what god did to the Jewish people..
you know, the REAL people.
- - -

Clearly those other people were sub-human and didn't deserve the land they held, much less to continue living, besides they would've corrupted the REAL People again, and we couldn't have that...

"However, in the cities of the nations the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. Completely destroy them " the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites " as the LORD your God has commanded you. Otherwise, they will teach you to follow all the detestable things they do in worshiping their gods, and you will sin against the LORD your God" (Deuteronomy 20:16-18).


and it was God who commanded it, because god talks...
It was God. So clearly it was ok to stamp out the existence of those subhumans.

People always have a rationalization for what they do...
even when it's something like Genocide.

When your wrapped up in a Fascistic political structure held together by ideas of Racial importance and unity... it makes those rationalizations all the easier don't it.

Throw the belief in God into it and sky's the limit on what you can do to the inconvenient subhuman mongrels.

Pretty sure Jericho came first.

Are you saying you're surprised that people they ran into after Jericho responded negatively to the Genocidal Marauders at their borders ?

can't be sure,
But I would imagine many among the Amorites would've thought they'd be doing a the entire world a solid by opposing such a cruel band of murderers.

on top of likely protecting their own people...

They'd already seen what the jewish people were capable of.

now, I'm not anti jewish, just rather anti marauding bands of genocidal murderers.

The Bible Unearthed by Finklestein and Silverston. Look it up and get back to me.
It's in video format for those of you who can't read.

Your god most certainly did order the murder of people who refused to worship him.

I am curious ...

http://catholic.org...

http://www.umc.org...

http://www.mormon.org...

Where exactly do you see 'Christians lynching atheists'? Considering everyone involved in the Crusades is LONG DEAD (and the enemy were Saracens), I am wondering why atheists seem so fixated on them being lynched when there is absolutely no call for this from the wider Christian community?

Might this instead be a dose of paranoia?

Yes, it was an example of a time period, but it was a time period during which the church was in control and command. The atrocities committed during this period were purely religiously driven (power lust), for the purpose of control.

Christians are no longer "burning atheists at steaks" (correction:stakes)

But there are many clerical leaders who clearly yearn for the days when they had such authority...

As for the Bible advocating genocide, the historical and circumstantial context has to be considered.

The "context" card... Your "context" is meaningless, when the claims for authorization of such genocide are clearly claimed to have been originated by the deity at the center of it all, no? Your "context" is known, today, as "apologetics." It fails.

During this period Israel was inhabited by the Canaanites, Amorites, Amelkites, and so on, these were groups that practiced incest, pedophilia, rape, murder, idolatry and child sacrifice; many also displayed violent behaviour towards the Hebrews.

In other words, they behaved JUST LIKE the Hebrews.

One example in particular is when the Amorites refused the Hebrews safe passage and attacked them.

Yes... Poor little Hebrews. Such VICTIMS, they were... <teardrop>

Essentially they were disrespecting the land of Israel and violating G-d's law.

Incorrect! They were defending their own land (They lived there, FIRST), a violating Israel's wishes. You may accept Israel's claims that the right to attack a sovereign nation and steal its land and resources (and virgins and livestock and plunder...) came from a deity, if you wish. That is the crux. If you accept Israel's claim, the imperialistic invasion is valid. If you do not accept Israel's claim, they were just another war-like tribe of desert animals who claimed to have won in the name of their deity (as did every other culture at that time).

What the Torah outlines is not that G-d commanded "genocide" as such but that he asked the Hebrews to drive their inhabitance into another land.

Yes, and how DARE the people WHO ALREADY LIVED THERE have an objection to some other tribe's deity and its edicts, right? How dare they not immediately recognize the "other tribe's" deity as the one true, and put their own beliefs aside to accommodate the claims of the obvious "chosen" people, right? After all... it's YOUR deity too, right? How can your deity not be true? How can your deity be made up? He has obviously revealed himself to you, directly, in such a manner as to eliminate any doubt in that your beliefs could POSSIBLY be wrong, correct?
