In response to a previous article:

Inge: Including dashing of infants against rocks.i
Daniel: Hm?
tomathyst:ii I was thinking of asking about that sort of thing.
Inge: "Hm?" Indicates an unawareness of the actual contents of "the whole bible".
Daniel: Oh, yes I'm aware of that. Yes I believe that part too.
tomathyst: Daniel loves that nasty savage stuff.
Daniel: I love God.
tomathyst: That's the OTiii god you love.
Daniel: Same God as the NT.iv
tomathyst: The NT is not your 'cup of tea'.
Daniel: Why do you say that?
tomathyst: Because it appears that you like hate, and other nasty savage stuff.
Daniel: Revelation 2:

23 I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works.

NT, red letter, Jesus Kills.
tomathyst: Must be some fans of the OT wrote revelations. :) They got their stuff in there just before the book was closed by history.
Daniel: I like the nice parts of the Bible, but most people like those parts too. It's more productive to focus on the parts most people don't believe.
tomathyst: Is it?
Daniel: Yes. What good is it if I say "God loves you" and you say "I know" ; meanwhile you don't believe that God kills people and for this you will perish forever in the lake of fire.v
tomathyst: Mythology. There's no forever for you, fire or not. You'll just be dead, like before you were born. It's all about what you make with This Life of yours. You and everyone else. This is It. Make it good.
Daniel: I don't know how you could know that, but may God save you!
tomathyst: I don't Know anything. Neither do you.
Daniel: I know what the Bible says.
tomathyst: You don't know the authors of it, really. A bunch of guys, some good, some very good, some wanting to scare the life out of you, and some just plain nuts.
Daniel: The Bible existed before it was written;vi it is from everlasting.
tomathyst: Mythology. No older than a few thousand years. It was a great project though; there's a lot of good stuff in it. Veins of gold! Stick to the veins, miner!

  1. Psalm 137:
    9 Happy the one who takes and dashes
    Your little ones against the rock!

  2. An atheist operator of a Bible chat room.
  3. "Old Testament."
  4. "New Testament."

  5. Darwin: Better, "for not believing God's word..."

  6. John 1:
    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
