The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision. --Lynn Lavner

Current Mood: amusedamused

There's different possibilities.

One if that Moses lied. Another is that he misinterpreted what God said. It's also possible that God merely said it so that they would, as I said, stay alive. And there was no intention of being a long term thing.

Sacrifices can mean anything. I haven't done a lot of work trying to "decode" the meanings, but I'm sure a lot of other people have. Many think it was a symbol of what was to come. Others think it was to make man feel guilty. Again, it's still possible it was nothing but a lie, or that Moses just had a bad connection on his Nokia.

God: Moses, can you hear me now? Well, asses to you then. Go burn something. (Stupid connection..)

Moses: Huh? Um.. Okay..

Sure, I think the whole thing’s fiction — I’m an atheist. But the whole context of the discussion assumes that there’s worth in the Bible, that the people who’re using the Bible as support for their bigotry are foolish not for trusting the Bible, but for trusting a bad translation, or for not thinking about what they read. This isn’t a point of view that is well-addressed with the argument “Maybe Moses lied.”


You are putting words in my mouth. I never gave any context for any discussion. I merely made some comments. If you want to see more of what I think, check my journal.

But I do not believe the Bible is right, word for word. I do not think that at all. I merely think that some of the events it depicts have happened, and that the writings are REAL. I never said it was true or accurate.

I think you are looking for a debate where one does not exist.

Could be.

I never said you thought it was true or accurate, so we may be in furious agreement here.
