Quote# 1615

[on the 'thou shalt not suffer a witch to live' verses added to the KJV]Maybe (if it's true) God wanted that put in because he foresaw all the trouble in the 1600's with the influx of witches and witchcraft.

So your god foresaw the \"witch trouble\", but only right before it happened. He wasn't so powerful as to foresee this when he dictated the original draft.

Your god is pitiful.

Or, maybe, just maybe, they wanted an excuse to kill so-called witches.

There's a lot of stuff in the bible about disease being God's punishment - does that mean he foresaw the bubonic plague too?

You think all those poor people were actually witches?

Of course. Before then, they didn't have the Bible to warn them.

They used ducks.

Wait . . . What the . . . I don't even . . .

What?

This person can't be real. No one could actually say that. No one could honestly think this. No one could actually think that the people murdered for witchcraft were actually witches. No one can actually have such a poor understanding of history. No one can honestly claim that the witchhunts were a good thing.

I hope this is a poe. I really, really do. I'm having trouble believing that this person is for real. And I really hope that they're not.

The sad thing is that I'm not sure whether this is meant seriously or not. The sad thing is that I can see someone actually posting such nonsense and actually believing it.

My hope for humanity has taken a massive hit.

I...I need to put a gun in my mouth. There is no other reaction to a comment like that I could possibly have.

So He foresaw witch trouble coming and had verses added ahead of time to deal with that, yet didn't bother leaving behind instructions to deal with natural disasters, wars, genocides, and epidemics.

Okay.

But people who can live 900 years, part seas, heal blindness with saliva, replicate food, tell the future, or cause pigs to become suicidal are okay, right?
