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?
Religion loves to deploy magic whenever science deconstructs religion. When science picks religious beliefs apart, religion turns to magical incantations in order to convolve faith and reality. Evolution? God did that. The creation of the universe out of nothing? God did that. Who created God? God is eternal. Its magic!
How long should we allow such sleight of hand to be the response to such questions? How dare theists use such childish rebuttals as responses to these important questions! What do you think?
Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.” – Genesis 22:2
What kind of sick individual would put a parent in the position of killing their child? How could this be considered moral? It does not matter that Yahweh/Jehovah recanted his mandate to Abraham and allowed his son to live. Imagine what God wanted Abraham to do as a test. He wanted Abraham to slit his son’s throat and then set him on fire. Please re-read the previous sentence one more time for emphasis. This is the God that wants your adoration. This is why the scourge of religion needs to be eliminated, not by force but by the understanding that is what this God would like as devotion. Pure allegiance and service to this vile creature is what it desires. This monster can gift wrap the rest of the Bible as a sound foundation of morals but this requested act is a testament to what God wants from us.
“Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. – Matthew 10:37
Please remember both the example of Abraham and the aforementioned scripture when thinking about where you devotions lie…
