The difference is Islam has never allowed for modernization on any large scale at all. All of the important points of modern society - corporations (for profit and for civil reasons), secular political institutions, laws developed apart from scripture - are totally incompatible with Islam at a fundamental level (some are outright forbidden). As a religion, it is tribal in nature and simply doesn't adapt.

You can point to shit from hundreds of years ago, but the reality is that Christianity has moved on and Islam hasn't, because it can'. I really don't understand how intelligent people buy this garbage that all religions are equally bad. They may be nonsensical to you, but Christianity and Judaism are much more humane, adaptable religions and they don't contribute to suffering today in anywhere near the numbers Islam does.

That sucks and I disagree with them, but it rather proves my point since the attitudes are changing (and many church leaders are behind the progressives). Just as many used the Bible to argue against slavery.

The scary thing about Islam is the uniformity of interpretation, crossing national boundaries and centuries of followers. There simply isn't any forward movement, because it is incompatible with progress.

Yep. Early religions. Islam is no longer an early religion, and yet it is still one of the most malignant forces in the world. Have you ever even read the Koran?

You really have no way of knowing if religion is a lie. None of us do. People are free to believe whatever silly things they would like. What does it matter to you?

Truly, I don't get why atheists/agnostics are so bent on lumping all religions together as equally evil (except Buddhism and new age stuff, which they seem give a pass to for some reason). Why is it so important to you that everyone agree all religion is equally bad? On its face, just looking at the way of life in various countries, it should be pretty obvious that there are some differences.

Islam still does horrible things in a barbaric way. George Bush (undoubtedly a religious man who was the hero of the Evangelicals) denied federal funding for abortions, restricting the rights of women abd did his part to hold back stem cell research (a stem cell related procedure may have recently helped cure a man of AIDS). When the Dali Lama ran Tibet he lead a nation that encouraged slavery abd the mistreatment of anyone who wasn't a priest.

All religions are bad and have lead to horrible things happening to innocent people. That cannot be disputed. You can bieve that god cannot be disproven but to me god has never been proven. I am an atheist and if I am wrong than god will not let me complete this sentence.

Critical thinking is essential and believing any old nonsense just cos it appears harmless can lead to stupidity on a dangerous level.

Looking at the evidence presented from both sides, its only reasonable to conclude gods don't exist. If I were to claim elves flew in the sky at night, you could not say you know they don't without committing a logical fallacy. One could apply the same standards of 'knowing' one way or the other about anything, and if they did, nothing would be known for sure. Everything would be a logical fallacy if only one person were to claim otherwise. This is all a dream, prove me wrong. ;)

The old testament certainly does, but not the new. At least Christians can quote Jesus' teachings of love and peace. Besides a few quotes about respecting the Holy places of all religions, and being kind to fellow "people of the book" (Christians, Jews, etc.) Muslims don't have much to prove their religion is one of peace. If Islam vanished the world would be a safer place.

You "think that [it] might"? lol. Clearly you haven't actually read the Koran. It is at its core hateful, militaristic, violent, and intent on world domination through any means necessary. That's their endgame - dead infidels and Muslim control. There is little of the progressivism, peaceful teachings, or promotion of tolerance that exists throughout Judeochristian scriptures (granted there are a lot of unpalatable parts there, too), but I suppose you could say parts of it are pretty enough as poetry goes.

Most people who have done a comparative reading of Judeochristian vs. Muslim scriptures away with a pretty good understanding of why Muslim countries are so disproportionately represented among the most horrid places to live in the world.

If you're so convinced that all religions are equally bad, why don't you go preach about atheism in Saudi Arabia or Yemen? Or try being a gay person there? I get that you don't really like Christianity, but at least Christians won't kill you these days for who you are. There's a fundamental difference there and I'm not sure why you're so opposed to recognizing it.

When did he say this?

1) “For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass the law until all is accomplished. Whoever then relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but he who does them and teaches them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:18-19 RSV) Clearly the Old Testament is to be abided by until the end of human existence itself. None other then Jesus said so.

2) All of the vicious Old Testament laws will be binding forever. "It is easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away than for the smallest part of the letter of the law to become invalid." (Luke 16:17 NAB)

3) Jesus strongly approves of the law and the prophets. He hasn’t the slightest objection to the cruelties of the Old Testament. "Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest part or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place." (Matthew 5:17 NAB)

3b) "All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness..." (2 Timothy 3:16 NAB)

3c) "Know this first of all, that there is no prophecy of scripture that is a matter of personal interpretation, for no prophecy ever came through human will; but rather human beings moved by the holy Spirit spoke under the influence of God." (2 Peter 20-21 NAB)

4) Jesus criticizes the Jews for not killing their disobedient children according to Old Testament law. Mark.7:9-13 "Whoever curses father or mother shall die" (Mark 7:10 NAB)

5) Jesus is criticized by the Pharisees for not washing his hands before eating. He defends himself by attacking them for not killing disobedient children according to the commandment: “He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.” (Matthew 15:4-7)

6) Jesus has a punishment even worse than his father concerning adultery: God said the act of adultery was punishable by death. Jesus says looking with lust is the same thing and you should gouge your eye out, better a part, than the whole. The punishment under Jesus is an eternity in Hell. (Matthew 5:27)

7) Peter says that all slaves should “be subject to [their] masters with all fear,” to the bad and cruel as well as the “good and gentle.” This is merely an echo of the same slavery commands in the Old Testament. 1 Peter 2:18

8) “Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law" (John7:19) and “For the law was given by Moses,..." (John 1:17).

9) “...the scripture cannot be broken.” --Jesus Christ, John 10:35

Jesus preached only to Jews and told his deciples not to preach to non-Jews, then decided later on he'd spread his "good news" to the Gentiles. Most Christians will tell you the Old Testament only applies to the Jews/Israelites and not them.

No real motivation to write a huge post about it right now (this is like trying to explain the plot of Serial.

Hey Cunt, this is what the bible says about rape.

1) Murder, rape, and pillage at Jabesh-gilead (Judges 21:10-24 NLT)

So they sent twelve thousand warriors to Jabesh-gilead with orders to kill everyone there, including women and children. "This is what you are to do," they said. "Completely destroy all the males and every woman who is not a virgin." Among the residents of Jabesh-gilead they found four hundred young virgins who had never slept with a man, and they brought them to the camp at Shiloh in the land of Canaan.

The Israelite assembly sent a peace delegation to the little remnant of Benjamin who were living at the rock of Rimmon. Then the men of Benjamin returned to their homes, and the four hundred women of Jabesh-gilead who were spared were given to them as wives. But there were not enough women for all of them. The people felt sorry for Benjamin because the LORD had left this gap in the tribes of Israel. So the Israelite leaders asked, "How can we find wives for the few who remain, since all the women of the tribe of Benjamin are dead? There must be heirs for the survivors so that an entire tribe of Israel will not be lost forever. But we cannot give them our own daughters in marriage because we have sworn with a solemn oath that anyone who does this will fall under God's curse."

Then they thought of the annual festival of the LORD held in Shiloh, between Lebonah and Bethel, along the east side of the road that goes from Bethel to Shechem. They told the men of Benjamin who still needed wives, "Go and hide in the vineyards. When the women of Shiloh come out for their dances, rush out from the vineyards, and each of you can take one of them home to be your wife! And when their fathers and brothers come to us in protest, we will tell them, 'Please be understanding. Let them have your daughters, for we didn't find enough wives for them when we destroyed Jabesh-gilead. And you are not guilty of breaking the vow since you did not give your daughters in marriage to them.'" So the men of Benjamin did as they were told. They kidnapped the women who took part in the celebration and carried them off to the land of their own inheritance. Then they rebuilt their towns and lived in them. So the assembly of Israel departed by tribes and families, and they returned to their own homes.

Obviously these women were repeatedly raped. These sick bastards killed and raped an entire town and then wanted more virgins, so they hid beside the road to kidnap and rape some more. How can anyone see this as anything but evil

2) Murder, rape and pillage of the Midianites (Numbers 31:7-18 NLT)

They attacked Midian just as the LORD had commanded Moses, and they killed all the men. All five of the Midianite kings – Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur, and Reba – died in the battle. They also killed Balaam son of Beor with the sword. Then the Israelite army captured the Midianite women and children and seized their cattle and flocks and all their wealth as plunder. They burned all the towns and villages where the Midianites had lived. After they had gathered the plunder and captives, both people and animals, they brought them all to Moses and Eleazar the priest, and to the whole community of Israel, which was camped on the plains of Moab beside the Jordan River, across from Jericho.

Moses, Eleazar the priest, and all the leaders of the people went to meet them outside the camp. But Moses was furious with all the military commanders who had returned from the battle. "Why have you let all the women live?" he demanded. "These are the very ones who followed Balaam's advice and caused the people of Israel to rebel against the LORD at Mount Peor. They are the ones who caused the plague to strike the LORD's people. Now kill all the boys and all the women who have slept with a man. Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves.

Clearly Moses and God approves of rape of virgins.

3) More Murder Rape and Pillage (Deuteronomy 20:10-14)

As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace. If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labor. But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town. When the LORD your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town. But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder. You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you.

What kind of God approves of murder, rape, and slavery?

6) David's Punishment - Polygamy, Rape, Baby Killing, and God's "Forgiveness" (2 Samuel 12:11-14 NAB)

Thus says the Lord: 'I will bring evil upon you out of your own house. I will take your wives [plural] while you live to see it, and will give them to your neighbor. He shall lie with your wives in broad daylight. You have done this deed in secret, but I will bring it about in the presence of all Israel, and with the sun looking down.'
Then David said to Nathan, "I have sinned against the Lord." Nathan answered David: "The Lord on his part has forgiven your sin: you shall not die. But since you have utterly spurned the Lord by this deed, the child born to you must surely die." [The child dies seven days later.]

This has got to be one of the sickest quotes of the Bible. God himself brings the completely innocent rape victims to the rapist. What kind of pathetic loser would do something so evil? And then he kills a child! This is sick, really sick!

LMAO, see what I mean? You're very ignorant. It certainly does matter why things transpired.

> This is rape and murder endorsed by god.

What you quoted is part of the record of a civil war between the tribe of Benjamin and the other 11 tribes of Israel, which has nothing to do with God's "endorsement". Jabesh-Gilead was sacked by the 11 because they had refused to come up to Mizpeh to take part with Israel against the tribe of Benjamin (Judg. 21:8-14). After the battle in which the tribe was reduced to 600 men, the inhabitants of Jabesh-Gilead were killed save 400 virgins (who were the only people allowed to be married at that time) sent as a peace offering to the Benjamin tribe in order to end the civil war. This is a record of history and denouncing things as 'evil' (which is stupid anyway, since what you believe evil is subjective inb4 you claim I'm a rape supporter) But you won't know that since you're apparently assuming that the Old Testament isn't mostly a record of the history of the Israelites with a little bit of God inserted which is only attached so people can reference prophecies fulfilled in the New Testament.

I find it strange how you're frothing at the mouth of 'gods allowance' of the "rape" of 600 girls but are making no mention of the civil war which reduced a tribe from 25,000 men to 600 men. Maybe that's because you don't research things before pissing and moaning.

Where did God condone rape? The only thing that God came into in that story was when it explained that the 11 tribes had sworn a solemn vow before him that they would not give their daughters to marriage within Benjamin, which they could not break.

Cruelty in the Quran
As for the thief, both male and female, cut off their hands. ... An exemplary punishment from Allah.--5:38

Don't bother warning the disbelievers. Allah has made it impossible for them to believe so that he can torture them forever after they die. 2:6-7
Allah has sickened the hearts of disbelievers and increased their disease. He is a spiritual anti-doctor. 2:10
If you try to compose a surah that is better than those in the Quran, and then fail, Allah will burn you forever if you in the fire that he has prepared for disbelievers, whose fuel is men and stones. 2:24
Allah will shed human blood while angels praise him in heaven. (The angels question why Allah has to kill people; Allah says they'd understand if they knew everything like he does.) 2:30
They who disbelieve, and deny Our revelations, such are rightful Peoples of the Fire. They will abide therein." 2:39
There will come a day when Allah will refuse all prayers and help no one. 2:48
Allah brags about drowning the Egyptian army. 2:50
"Whosoever hath done evil and his sin surroundeth him; such are rightful owners of the Fire." 2:81
Christians and Jews (who believe in only part of the Scripture), will suffer in this life and go to hell in the next. 2:85

7) Rape of Female Captives (Deuteronomy 21:10-14 NAB)

"When you go out to war against your enemies and the LORD, your God, delivers them into your hand, so that you take captives, if you see a comely woman among the captives and become so enamored of her that you wish to have her as wife, you may take her home to your house. But before she may live there, she must shave her head and pare her nails and lay aside her captive's garb. After she has mourned her father and mother for a full month, you may have relations with her, and you shall be her husband and she shall be your wife. However, if later on you lose your liking for her, you shall give her her freedom, if she wishes it; but you shall not sell her or enslave her, since she was married to you under compulsion."

Once again God approves of forcible rape.

How constant are they in their strife to reach the Fire! 2:175
"Fight in the way of Allah." 2:190, 2:244
If someone murders your slave, then you get to kill one of his. If it was a male that was killed, you kill one of the killer's male slaves. If a female, you kill a female. Murder for murder. Slave for slave. It all works out swell with Allah's wondrous rules. (Oh, and if you don't follow them, you'll have the usual painful doom.) 2:178
"Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you." 2:190
Kill disbelievers wherever you find them. If they attack you, then kill them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. (But if they desist in their unbelief, then don't kill them.) 2:191-2

When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment. (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)

This act was clearly against the will of god. In their anger they destroyed their brethren, felt bad, then stole women to restore the tribe, compounding their sin.

The moral summary comes in the final verse, directly after the story you told.

" In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did as he saw fit."

The point is to show the great evil of the time, and the need for a king, which is realized in the next book: the book of Samuel.

This law was a protection of rape victims. We can't judge ancient people by modern morals.

Virginity was highly prized in tribal societies and nobody would want a rape victim.
The law ensures that the rape victim will have all her expenses paid for the rest of her life.

Because of our freedom of mobility and compassion we judge a law like this as evil, but it was intended for good.

I don't see rape in that passage. I see his wives cheating on him. His son dies of an illness.

God permits evil in the world.

God didn't condone the rape.

God is just. He didn't rape them. Evil men did.

Don't bother. She doesn't look at things properly before denouncing them, and then always refuses to change her mind after proven wrong (instead using things like 'it doesn't really matter' and replying with 'okay' to every reply to kill debate).

LOL Your first scripture is from

The Song of Deborah and Barak

Yor second scripture sounds abhorrent to modern western ears but even to many people today arranged mariages are common. Throughout history, the practise of arranged marriages has flourished but not many cultures include the proviso of a slave not being a concubine, but a wife; not being a slave, but a daughter, and if you fail the woman in any way she is free to leave.

The Quran says not to bother convincing people but the Bible tells me that God loves toto and that I should love her too.

Where is the contradiction and hypocrisy in Christianity?

Christians are hypocrites and contradict the teaching of the bible because they are just people. All people make mistakes.

You talked about critical thinking skills before. How about critical reading? An important part of critical reading is context. Let's examine the next verse after those the 2 that you posted: verse 3.

"The LORD will come out and fight against those peoples"

But, wait... you mean Zechariah wrote that God would fight against the plunderers and rapists?

Why would someone deliberately quote the preceding two verses in such a way as to distort the meaning of the passage? This is nothing less than intellectual dishonesty.

> The LORD will come out and fight against those peoples

I take that to mean the half of Jerusalem which was not put into exile. It is not the people who plundered and raped Jerusalem who the lord came out and fought against, but Jerusalem.

The chapter is headed "The LORD will fight for Jerusalem" in many bibles.

It says peoples (i.e. nations) whereas the people of Jerusalem were one people, one nation. Your interpretation is untenable.

Like many cultures ancient and modern, the israelites practised polygamy. Is this the nature of your objection?

We were made to be polygamous, by god or science, it's a natural thing. The point of life is to make new life. Right?

I think you mean nature, not science lol that sounds like genetic engineering.

Family structures are a cultural thing, but monogamy is the most logical one today.
