When Jesus (God), the originator of the cosmos and creator of all life, specifically human beings, was confronted with an epileptic individual in Mark 9, did he cure his neurological illness by touching his head and somehow halting the incessant random impulses in the brain with his magical powers? No. He exorcized the demon that was controlling this individual’s body. Epilepsy is the misfiring of neurons that unconsciously promotes sudden and awkward movements entirely out of the control of the afflicted individual. Demonic exorcism is not a valid form of treatment. If this is the God who created us in whole, why was he ill prepared to administer the proper care? Doctors today can explain in great detail what exactly happens during a seizure. Why is it that human beings (created by God) are better equipped to care for this malady? If Jesus was the creator of all humanity, why did he provide false information to be inscribed in his inspired word?
He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, “Do you see anything?” He looked up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.” Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. – Mark 8:22-25
What was the deal with Jesus spitting on people? We know that if Jesus was real, he could heal with just his own words. Why did Jesus need to spit on people to heal certain maladies, like blindness?
Absalom said to Ahithophel, “Give us your advice. What should we do?” Ahithophel answered, “Sleep with your father’s concubines whom he left to take care of the palace. Then all Israel will hear that you have made yourself obnoxious to your father, and the hands of everyone with you will be more resolute.” So they pitched a tent for Absalom on the roof, and he slept with his father’s concubines in the sight of all Israel. Now in those days the advice Ahithophel gave was like that of one who inquires of God. That was how both David and Absalom regarded all of Ahithophel’s advice. – 2 Samuel 16:20-23
So all in all, because David killed Uzziah in order to sleep with Bathsheba, Uzziah’s wife, God cursed David and had David’s son forcibly have sex with his concubines “in the sight of all Israel!” What does this say about Yahweh, the God of Judaism and Christianity?
But if the thing is true, and evidences of virginity are not found for the young woman, then they shall bring out the young woman to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her to death with stones, because she has done a disgraceful thing in Israel, to play the harlot in her father’s house. So you shall put away the evil from among you. – Deuteronomy 22:20-21
Therefore, if a woman has sex before marriage, she should be stoned to death. What does that say to how early Christian women in that time period were treated? This does not happen to men. Why the dissymmetrical management between sexes? This is because women were treated as chattel in the eyes of men and that belief was transposed into the Bible because the Bible is the act of men and not of God. What say you?
Why is it wrong when a suicide bomber detonates themselves? Lets pretend that there are no civilian casualties or building damage. The bomber fails and he or she is the only resulting death. What is the problem with that? We would still say that the person was a deranged individual. However, this person believes in martyrdom and has come to the conclusion that this needs to occur in order to please its God, Allah. It is the art of human sacrifice to a diety. If this is true, then Jesus sacrifice can be viewed in the same manner. Both are acts of human sacrifice to a God. Both died as martyrs. Both should be viewed as deranged. What do you think?
