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 Maccabees 10:16 Then they that were with Maccabeus made supplication, and besought God that he would be their helper; and so they ran with violence upon the strong holds of the Idumeans,17 And assaulting them strongly, they won the holds, and kept off all that fought upon the wall, and slew all that fell into their hands, and killed no fewer than twenty thousand.
OCCASION: God slaughters the Idumeans MURDER COUNT: 20,000
