God killed them because they're Cylons... that's what I took from this.

Chapter and verse, dipshit.
Adding (more) nonsense to the bible is a sin you know.

So your God is a bit of an incompetant when it comes to ending bloodlines. Just one more thing he can't do? or is it just that he hires cheap help?
Nephilim show up in Genesis 6. But pretty much all of Genesis is a bunch of parable and "just-so" stories.

Mass killing to end bloodlines? The Godwin on this one is just far too easy.
9/20/2009 4:25:42 AM
And you worship that same genocidal madman. How delightful.
9/20/2009 5:05:37 AM
Are we talking about the christian God, or the God-Emperor of Mankind here?
9/20/2009 5:12:50 AM
So your omnipotent God first had no choice but to kill them, and then failed doing exactly that? Tell me again why I have to ass-kiss that incompetent mass-murdering narcissist...
9/20/2009 5:51:48 AM
Nothing can and should ever justify mass killing of men, women, children and animals.
Can your God not really come up with anything else besides killing off everything he doesn't like? It's getting old.
9/20/2009 6:09:08 AM
...but actually not all of them were killed. Some escaped.......
WTF?? Are you saying your doG is not omniscient and omnipotent?
9/20/2009 6:40:15 AM
I've just finished reading a sci-fi/Dan Brown ripoff novel based on a similar sort of idea. It was called 'The genesis code'. It wasn't very good.

"The reason God had the people killed, men, women and children....including their animals, was because they were nephilim contaminated.....hybrids. Their bloodline had to end........"
And, yet again, your god's omnipotence comes back to bit you in the ass.
Is your god omnipotent or not? If yes, why couldn't he either magically "poof" them out of existence or, better yet, why did he allow such a thing to happen in the first place? If he's not omnipotent why does the Bible lie to us and tell us he is and why would you call such a being "god"?
"ut actually not all of them were killed. Some escaped..........."
"God was completely justified in having this done."
Your god is almost never "justified" in anything that he's recorded as having done.

God is all powerful, except for all this shit he can't control
9/20/2009 7:28:27 AM
Numbers 10. and 11. are:
10. When one experiment went awry he tried to cover it up by drowning the subjects.
11. When subjects didn't behave as predicted, he deleted them from the sample.
That's not a way normal humans should behave.
9/20/2009 7:33:02 AM
So he couldn't just make them all sterile? Allow them to breed but ensure that their offspring turned out 100% human? Altered the hybrids' genetics to make them entirely human?
No, he had to kill them all. Because he had no choice. I mean, it's not as if he's supposed to be omnipotent or anything.

Jezebel's Evil Sister
Some escaped ...
Dang! Bible God failed yet again.
Why you worship such an incompetent loser? (Oh, yeah, because you made him in your own image.)
9/20/2009 7:42:46 AM
Hmm, genocide based on some form of racism.
9/20/2009 8:47:47 AM
My favorite line from fundies now is "God was justified..."
9/20/2009 9:28:44 AM
"The reason God had the people killed, men, women and children....including their animals, was because they were nephilim contaminated.....hybrids."
And you know this because...? I mean, it doesn't say that anywhere in the Bible."
"Their bloodline had to end........but actually not all of them were killed. Some escaped..........."
But that means you perfect, omnipotent, omniscient God failed in ending their bloodline.
"God was completely justified in having this done"
Genocide is never justified.
9/20/2009 9:40:50 AM
You have any evidence for this? I mean hard, concrete evidnece? Or have you just pulled it out of your fundameltalist fundament?
9/20/2009 9:48:00 AM
Gotta be a poe ...
9/20/2009 10:09:33 AM
This is why fundamental cultism is anathema to Christianity. Fundamental God-is-a-raving-loonyists like you are a blight on humanity. The dribbling maniac that is your God has nothing to do with Christianity.
9/20/2009 10:43:46 AM
What the fuck is nephilim?
9/20/2009 11:22:58 AM
oooooohhhh......you're gonna burn for that one!

Musical Bookworm: Nephilim are supposed to be angel/human hybrids. You really don't get much detail of them, except in the books of Enoch and Jubilees (which aren't in the usual Old Testament...). For whatever reason, they're supposed to be irrevocably evil and malicious (don't ask me why...). The book of Jubilees even goes so far as to say that the direct reason for the Deluge was to eradicate the nephilim. However, although they could be physically killed because of their human nature, their angel nature allowed them to persist as spirits. In other words, demon=nephil.
The crossbreeding itself, by the way, was regarded as evil. I think it had something to do with humans thinking this a way to circumvent mortality, which they were not supposed to do. It doesn't help that in return, the angels who sided with humanity taught a lot of things they were not supposed to know (and looking at the list from Jubilees, I have to wonder what's left that humans WERE meant to know, besides passive acceptance of fate). Stasis-worship, anyone?

so an omnipotent god
a allows his creation's bloodline to be contaminated by delinquent angels
b can't do his own dirty work
c can't organise a hit
