Quote# 25851

As for the Canaanites, not only were they given centuries of fair warning, they practised: child sacrifice ..., incest, bestiality, homo-sex, [and] cultic prostitution, both male and female. We know this from the biblical eye-witness data which is supported by ample extra-biblical evidence ...

They weren't given one minute of warning when Jewish men raided and raped and slaughtered them. Even warning would be useless.

Yes temple prostitutes existed, so what? You guys are even more evil. At least pro's had sex and pleased people.

Take your Jesus and leave my planet.

Abraham and Isaac.

Lot and his daughters.

Maidservants and concubines.

Judah \"went in unto\" his daughter-in-law, Tamar, who was disguised as a prostitute.

In the process, they capture Adonibezek and \"cut off his thumbs and great toes. ...

David commanded his young men, and they slew them, and cut off their hands

The LORD slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast.--

and the fire of the LORD burnt among them, and consumed them

And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died

And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive? ... Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.--

And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain

The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart

So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him

Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces.\" 2:3. God will burn \"the wicked\" and the \"righteous\" will walk around on their ashes. ...

Your cult was scared of an older cult, so you attempted to wipe them from the face of the earth, an ethinic-religious cleansing. While your cult didn't embrace homosexual sex or bestiality, the sheer magnitude of death and destruction that your people broughtin the name of their god dwarfs that of the Canaanites, who had been around as long or longer then you, and who's Hammurabi laws you borrowed liberally from.

They were such an evil group that the Israelites stole their rain god and made him king of the universe! How nice...

Which witness and extra-biblical data?, or did you just invented from your very ass?(note: I studied Middle-East archaeology and all he's saying is BULLSHIT). And which centuries of warning, if the Jewish were fourty years in the dessert before attacking them with a surprise attack?. Besides, if they were so bad, why keeping the virgin women?, could it be because they were after the wealth of the town, not fulfilling a God-mandated order?, moreover, in which way they're now justified to do so?, why are the Caananites worth of punishment and the Jewish aren't?, and how on earth can infant kids be guilty of all that?

\"which is supported by ample extra-biblical evidence...\"

Really? Care to share it with us? Remember what the voices in your head tell you doesn't count as evidence.

Don't insult science by calling the fairytales in your Babble 'data'.

Well, except for the part where you're lying. Which is all of it, really.

5/30/2007 2:01:13 PM


Mm hmm. It's a fortunate thing that libel is such a rare occurrence and never used to justify violence.

Let's see. You are a regular Cannanite guy, just home from a hard day at the camel dung factory. Strange guys show up at your door, \"Hello we are Jews from Egypt. We have wandered the desert 40 years to get here(Yeah, we know, the Lord didn't have very good road maps). We were promised this land by our God(yeah the one that got us lost), so we want you to leave, hand over the keys to your house, and go die in the desert. Oh yeah, he also promised us your crops, your livestock, and your wells, so hand them over. Oh one more thing, your wives and daughters were promised us as slaves, so kindly leave them. Have a nice day!\" So Jonathan, you would just waltz away from everything you own and love because some stranger shows up at your door and claims that HIS God gave him everything that YOU own. Yeah, right!!!

Imho, ritual sex is a good thing.

Ironically, the Canaanites later throve and prospered as Phoenicians [and Carthginians, until the Punic wars...]

Man Called True

The Bible isn't a valid source. \"Eyewitnesses\"? You drunk or something? That garbage was scribbled down hundreds of years after the fact.

\"Extra-biblical evidence\"? Proof or STFU.

I've SO wanted to use this pic somewhere.
I think it fits perfectly with the poster's attitude.

Somewhere in this country the fundies maintain a huge, huge warehouse full of all sorts of evidence. But the building is inconveniently located, so they usually don't bother displaying it.

Sauce? Chapter and verse.

The link is to a second-hand source. Safarti made the quoted comments here (about 2/3 of the way down the page).

Broken Egg

Regular, real-life eyewitness accounts are rarely reliable. Eyewitness accounts from a millennia-old fairy tale even less so.

Try again.

Hah! Perfect picture, MilkyWay! Nothing describes Sarfati (aka \"Socrates\" on TheologyWeb before he left) than that picture.

In fact, there are documents from the Asirians and Persian, where, the irony, they justified what they did to the Jewish(not genocide)on their past crimes. Now, tell me if it's not true that an eye for an eye and the world turns blind.

If you watch videos of Sarfati, you'll see how COMPLETELY in the closet he is. DENIAL DENIAL DENIAL. Not to mention batshit insane.
