    Heb_5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need t ...[text shortened]... growing in in the meat [righteousness and good works] is actively discouraged, almost forbidden.
    And it seems to me obsessing over such is not life fulfilling. Especially since all that eating proscription is 100% written by men and never inspired by a god.
    Also verses like 'men are worth 50 shekels but women are worth only 30'. CLEARLY manmade to codify the idea of men being top dogs in human culture.

    Too bad you can't see that. For instance, the same about Jews eating pork. CLEARLY a man made edict since we now know exactly what makes pork unsafe to eat. Therefore if WE know, an omniscient god would CERTAINLY know and instead of that omniscient god saying don't eat pork it could have just as easily said, look there are these tiny bad animals inside pork and if you want to eat it you have to cook the hell out of it, then it's safe to eat.

    Do you see THAT kind of advice anywhere in the bible? NO just negative edicts. Which CLEARLY comes from men not knowing jack about the real world just writing a work around for a specific problem they saw, hey, pork can be bad for you, solution, don't eat pork.

    That is SO mankind.

    Does Leviticus 27 Teach that Women are Worth Less than Men?

    yes, the apologists bear in. A couple of sentences in the bible followed by page after page of apologist literature, reams of it no doubt written in total to rationalize away that difficult perverse passage.

    How do your apologists react to stories of god tests, like Ab almost killing his son? Since your god has the attribute of omniscience, would have known when the universe was first created the outcome of Ab's test and all the other bogus tests in the bible.

    Seems they don't think through their plots very well, eh.

    Since you worship at the altar of science, you could answer with some handy apologetics of your own now.

    The last man to walk on the moon explained that there was no crater left by the rocket of the Lander because they shut the engine off before it touched the surface. And he said that that is exactly what the first landers did too, shut the engine off before touchdown. Therefore there was no crater in the dusty surface.

    But if you look at the video of the Eagle landing, the rocket engine was not cut off until it touched down on the surface.

    So do I believe that last astronaut to moon land or do I believe the video of the 1969 landing with Neil Armstrong ?
