Religious follies

A short list of extreme follies from the Bible.

  1. The idea of the one true god – at least 3 religions fight over whose monotheism is the true monotheism.
  2. The idea that god approves of slavery (“Slaves, obey your masters”)
  3. The idea that god orders killings, in some cases approximating genocide, by people who are commanded not to kill.
  4. The idea that god so disapproves of homosexuality that gays must be killed by the people who are commanded not to kill.
  5. The idea that god so disapproves of adultery that adulterers must be killed by the people who are commanded not to kill.
  6. The idea that god so disapproves of witches that witches must be killed by the people who are commanded not to kill.
  7. The idea that god has a chosen people.
  8. The idea that god grants his chosen people lands that are already occupied by gentiles.
  9. The idea that god inspired or authored the laws of the bible and yet forgot to include the cornerstone of law, due process.
