I love it when you guys try so desperately and ineffectually to justify your totally conflicted beliefs.
Whatever God does is good. He is always holy and just. I don't consider that he committed infanticide, genocide, or human sacrifice. In every case you can cite, it is always the human who does any of these things.
Allegedly at your god's command. Ever heard of the Amalekites?
If you are correct and God does not exist, then it is simply humans attempting to blame God for commanding them to do so. If I am correct and God exists, then each of these humans still has free will not to do any of these things if it were considered to be immoral.
Which is more immoral, disobeying a command from god or infanticide?
On the other hand, given that morality seems in human terms to be determined by the culture at any particular time,it might well be that people in those times did not have any moral concerns with these matters.
Even though your god had set moral standards for them for decades. Which is more immoral disobeying your god's command or genocide?
If that is the case, then you are being culturally insensitive and take the arrogant view that the 21st century is somehow more moral than these ones. This of course is a nonsense, isn't?
Perhaps not the 21st century's morals but mine certainly are, I've never committed genocide.
It is absurd to place 21st century morals on any culture prior to it, unless you believe that morals are self existent apart from one's own culture. Hence you take either the command divine view - which you don't or you believe that absolutes exist apart from time and culture. And if that is the case, I would love to see your theory to support such a thing.
So you still practice stoning non virgin wives to death as commanded by your god? Amazing how your contradictory beliefs always come back to destroy your contradictory beliefs.
As for my views and science - if you took the time to read my post you would have observed that there are three views - divine command, modernist, and post modern. I linked science and absolutes with the modern view - not the divine command system. Idiot.
And what makes you think those claims mean anything to anyone but you.
You'll be running away and claiming victory shortly. You stayed resolutely away from the human sacrifice, any particular reason.LOL
