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.
2 Kings 1:16 And he said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Forasmuch as thou hast sent messengers to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron, is it not because there is no God in Israel to enquire of his word? therefore thou shalt not come down off that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die.17 So he died according to the word of the LORD which Elijah had spoken. And Jehoram reigned in his stead in the second year of Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah; because he had no son.
