There are 7427 blatant absurdities in the bible. Among them:
It is the natural tendency of the ignorant to believe what is not true. (H.L.Mencken)
Murder is murder, regardless of who commits it or why. Many idiots repeat ad nauseum that the biblical God had his reason for the slaughter of 25 million innocent lives. Well, so do murderers and serial killers have a reason for the killings they perpetrated in our communities. If God can get away with his genocidal deeds, why are we indicting, prosecuting and giving the death penalty to murderers and serial killers? At the end of the day, Stalin, Pol Pot, Lenin, Mao, Hitler, king Leopold II of Belgium, look like choirboys compared to God. While the political thugs are no longer slaughtering victims, every single Christian is still under the command from his God to murder others.
Numbers 25:1 And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab.2 And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.3 And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel.4 And the LORD said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the LORD against the sun, that the fierce anger of the LORD may be turned away from Israel.5 And Moses said unto the judges of Israel, Slay ye every one his men that were joined unto Baalpeor.6 And, behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought unto his brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight of Moses, and in the sight of all the congregation of the children of Israel, who were weeping before the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.7 And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose up from among the congregation, and took a javelin in his hand;8 And he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel.9 And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand.10 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,11 Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, hath turned my wrath away from the children of Israel, while he was zealous for my sake among them, that I consumed not the children of Israel in my jealousy.
