God contradicts himself!


tabletsA thoughtful person who thinks about God cannot help but notice the amazing contradictions. They are everywhere you look.

Here is one very simple example. On the day Moses comes down from Mount Sinai with the stone tablets containing the Ten Commandments, he discovers that the Israelites have created a golden calf. To punish the people, Moses gathers a group of men and takes the following action in the book of

Exodus, Chapter 32:

Then he [Moses] said to them, “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘Each man strap a sword to his side. Go back and forth through the camp from one end to the other, each killing his brother and friend and neighbor.’ ” The Levites did as Moses commanded, and that day about three thousand of the people died.

So… one minute we have God carving into stone, “Thou shalt not kill.” Then the next minute we have God telling each man to strap a sword to his side and lay waste to thousands. Wouldn’t you expect the almighty ruler of the universe to be slightly more consistent than this? 3,000 dead people is a lot of commandment breaking. Obviously that is a total contradiction. The reason why you find contradictions like that in the Bible is because God is imaginary.

    Before I even try refuting anything you are saying, first, allow me to ask: How can a person who doesn’t exit (you et al) contradict Himself? I think you don’t even know what atheism is all about.

      God here means the god of the Bible. Not an existing god!

        But Harry, in good faith, before I even bring up my Christian argument (for I believe in Jesus Christ and in this God you claim contradicts Himself), why should you be concerned about the “self contradicting” statements of a “nonexistent God”.
        I thought, in order to validate your point, even in the slightest manner, and while defending the atheistic notion that there exists no God, you WOULD NOT try to argue from an angle that a non-existing God said such and such self contradicting statements; of which even logic would deny that something that has never existed could possibly have a mouth – leave alone a conscience and a mind – to utter things: whether true, false or half-true or even nonsense.
        My point is this: your angle of arguing against a “god” and the statements “he” put forth means that you are arguing against something; that you are arguing against matter (which even the most devoted atheists like Stephen Hawking believe exists) and not air or nonexistence. (But to clarify things a little, my God, the God of the Bible, is not “matter” so that we may pose an argument at things that resemble the commonness and limited finality of mankind).
        If, at all, your point of argument should then be believed (or even be tolerated) by people like myself, I guess you should start by never referring to words a nonexistent “god” said or says. You should argue and refute things from an angle of a nonexistentialist – which atheism partially subscribes to… That’s my point.
        After you’ve done that, then we may begin to debate.
