Evolution is bankrupting morality (Page 2)

mrsmargaret48: " high school history books from the 50's", where would I get history books from the 50's. Your not quoting anyone your expressing an opinion, opinions that have no basis in reality. Fairy tales are not history, the Israelite's were slaves not guest workers and Egyptian society didn't generally practice incest like most societies.

Corwin: Did it occur to you to actually bother to look it up?

https://www.discovermagazine.com/planet-earth/who-built-the-egyptian-pyramids-not-slaves


Excerpts from the above article:

-- The best evidence suggests that pyramid workers were locals who were paid for their services and ate extremely well. We know this because archaeologists have found their tombs and other signs of the lives they lived.

-- hieroglyphics give archaeologists hints about where the workers came from, what their lives were like, and who they worked for. Nowhere have archaeologists found signs of slavery

-- ... obvious origin of the slave idea comes from the longstanding Judeo-Christian narrative that the Jews were enslaved in Egypt, as conveyed by the story of Moses in the book of Exodus.


Read the full article if you'd like to learn the subject in more detail. Before you point the finger regarding what is "fairy tale", keep your source in mind... the Bible is NOT a history book.

kittybobo34: The Egyptian version of the exodus is quite a bit different than the Jewish one, and frankly much more believable.

Troublinn: Lol, it's no secret that ideas of what is Right and what is Wrong, vary from time to time. King Solomon, I think, would be hard pressed to find some common ground with with today's Christian, on the subject of monogamy!

"God's Law" is traditionally shown in terms of do's and don't's. These do's and don't's are the work of moralists and probably serve the useful purpose of keeping us from each other's throats.

kittybobo34: Troublinn,, totally agree, I think Religion served a purpose in establishing civilization, common beliefs, a coded system of behavior. Not sure civilization needs that anymore. Although there are lots of individuals that could not survive with out it.

mrsmargaret48: Corwin, can you read, I said ISRAELITE'S not EGYPTIANS. I know its a forum but facts and reality don't change because they don't suit someones historical fairy tale.

kitty, a lot of people wouldn't survive without a coded system of behaviour because they would be dead, that coded system prevents the world from descending into Mad Max or The Purge. Civilisation needs logic and common sense, something rarely found on forums.

Lol@'suggests'--you are believing in the stories of people who weren't there, over the history of people who were enslaved? That's top-notch ridiculous delusion making!
The Jews would definitely know their history vs the rewrite of history by people thousands of years later who want to paint a picture that they can't possibly know for certain...

Wrong. All it takes is one Hilter to ignore his 'honor'--to create a lot of misery for millions--or billions, these days. Honor doesn't keep people moral, but God's judgment does influence the conduct of many people--who aren't psychopaths...

Or is it just another tedious religious troll trying to be more useful than the basement dwelling shut in that religious people are becoming?

zeffur: What you should be really laughing hysterically at is YOUR irrational & idiotic worldview...

You clowns are as gullible as they come. 163+ years since Darwin published & your delusional apostles can't even provide a sound case that shows evolution is true or has ever occurred--which is no surprise to any sane, honest, rational, well-informed, & intelligent person, because fiction can never be true. But not for evoidiots like bonzono! What a gullible dummy & stupid troll!

You peddle evo shill opinions that have not & cannot prove that abiogenesis & evolution are true, because you have no truth to offer...

Curious. you're more stupid than I gave you credit for.

It's you who is stupid. "163+ years since Darwin published.." means EVERYTHING FROM HIS TIME UNTIL NOW. Your apprehension is pitiful.

If your doctor considers you to be an ape, then your doctor is a vet or highly incompetent. Clearly, you are just a stupid troll who doesn't have any truth to offer to anyone. It's all the same with you lunatics--one idiotic indefensible notion after the next from you... Grow up! Or, better yet, start taking your psycho meds properly!

Sooo.. You've not actually checked that your doctor considers you an ape?

heh, you're in for a funny surprise - but, by all means, continue to be too scared and stupid to actually ask your doctor if you're an ape.

enjoy!

zeffur: Made up god? Prove it! There is loads of evidence that God interacted with mankind for millennia & He continues to do so today--just not with everyone.

You have no proven 'demonstrated facts" that substantiate that your imaginary & delusional evo cult claptrap claims are true or have ever occurred. Why don't you show your unbiased, credible, empirical evidence, proven test results, & sound reasoning?? Because you have no sound case & you never will have one because abiogenesis & evolution are nothing but stupid fiction for nitwits.

Great!, show me something. Anything. Anything at all.
Then show me that thing is more than mythology

And yes, peer review demonstrates what you actually hold to be true anyhow.
You know you hold it to be true, otherwise you'd never bother with modern medical advice.

You also obviously have ZERO sound case to offer than can substantiate that your delusional evo cult claptrap is true or has ever occurred, or you would have proven it here & now--which you didn't do because you cannot do so... You're completely FoS with your idiot & delusional claims...
