Quote# 41183

Abel's animal sacrifice pleased God simply because it involved death and blood. And that's the only thing that will pay for our sin. The purpose of the sacrifice was to have the sacrifice take our sin. God is not interested in your work to pay for your sin. It requires death. Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin, the Bible says. So without the blood you can not be saved. Cain's offering of fruits and vegetables, as wonderful as it may have looked, was not impressive to God. Just by the same token, your good works and my good works are not impressive to God. The only thing He is looking for is the blood.

Hell of a god you got there, Kent. Hell of a bloodthirsty ghoul king of a god...

Blood for the blood god, skulls for the skull throne, indeed.

Yeah, Kent. Looks like the ten commandments are irrelevant now, you stupid lying bitch?

...and they get upset when we call them a "death cult"...

Good. Can we give him your's?

Oh, of course, makes perfect sense to worship him then. More blood for the blood god!

And the skull throne piles up ever higher.

And they completely miss the real message of the story which is when you screw up (Cain getting jealous and killing Abel), you need to acknowledge it, take responsibility for it, and not try to weasel out ("Am I my brother's keeper?").

It's the same message in the Adam and Eve story - he blamed her, she blamed the serpent, and they all got bitchslapped by YHWH for not owning up and saying sorry.

Bearing responsibility for your actions is a good thing for all humans to practice.

Of course, the stupid fundies manage to miss all the subtexts in Genesis and get obsessed by literalism and outdated dogma.

Wow. Hovind actually admits the real meaning behind the Cain and Abel story. Congratulations.

Blood for the blood god? Geez Kent, let us write the jokes. You just keep being the straight man. We'll handle the punch lines.

Wow, this is a first: Hovind ain't lyin'.

I read somewhere (can't find the link sorry) that it was more to do with trying to stamp out the worship of the Semitic mother goddess Asherah (the consort of Yahweh). Traditionally blood/meat sacrifices were made to the Sky Father while grain was given to the Earth Mother. Thus Cain's offering of his work was rejected over the portion of Abel's flock.

A very old morality tale made to solidify the power of the priests.

You'd better start slashing yourself, Kent.

YOUR good works, Hovind? Where?

What if your god is the number one sinner to begin with?

Evolution is a lie and God's a vampire! It all makes sense right?!

Michael Wong on Creationtheory.org used this same argument AGAINST Christianity...

I never expected one of them to admit that theirs is a death cult.

Lovely. I sure wish I was stupid enough to feel safe and special believing in a fictional god out for blood. Yeeeees, siree.

KENT! KENT! I LOVE YOU! THANK YOU FOR SAYING WHAT WE WANTED YOU TO COME OUT AND ADMIT ALL ALONG! THANK YOU!

Finally. The God of Love charade is over. They dropped the mask they use to tempt fence-sitters, agnostics, and the ignorant. The true face is revealed.

Blood for the Blood God.
