Re: Some good information on religious fundamentalism


"According to the way I perceive your opinion everything is a work of fiction that is written, combine that with liquid truth and nothing really makes sense unless one wants it to."

I do think that unless there is tangible evidence to back a claim, the claim remains fiction. The bible, and the god character in the bible, is a work of fiction created by man to try and explain the world around them, because they lacked the scientific evidence to form an objective view. The bible was also created as a mechanism to control other people. This is why there is a hierarchy in jewish, islamic and christian churches, that persists today.

Liquid truth, to me, simply means that there is no absolute truth, truth changes, what was considered true at one stage in history, may not necessarily be considered true at another. What is true for one person, is not necessarily true for another. Examples of this are everywhere. Truth can change when more knowledge is gained, more evidence discovered etc.

I have already given examples of the god character sanctioning war and killing in the bible, so I am not going to go into that again. Perhaps support for those engaging in war is a better term, (we see today many nations claiming the support of god in warfare).

You can play with the semantics of this, but the question remains, if the god character in the bible has given the commandment, "thou shalt not kill", then goes on to support/sanction killing, this is a contradiction.
