But... in the context of acbytesla's post that you replied to ... can you please tell us what is the faulty premise you have identified please??

no.

the point of a logic argument can be that premises believed to be true must be false.

the calculation that the Sun can't be made of coal (an assumption in pre-nuclear science), or it would have burned out already, would be such a case.

And ye shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your slaves for ever

And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die.... If thou shalt hear say in one of thy cities... saying, Let us go and serve other gods...

No I am saying that your premise that "God exists" is a faulty premise is in itself a faulty premise.

Which would imply that it is instead a true premise. But whatever. My point is that if you start by assuming that a false premise is actually true, your logic can be rock solid and you will still come to conclusions that are false. Your logic isn't at fault, just the premise on which you build it.

You're talking about validity. You can have a valid argument with false premises. But soundness requires premises to be true.

The river in Egypt is called the Nile... "denial" is an English word which signifies what apologists of your ilk do when faced with the cognition of reality which is dissonant with their Blind Faith about their deadbeat sky daddies.

I swear I donít understand what most of you are arguing about.

Logic cannot prove the existence of a God. But logic can point out the flaws in people's argument for the existence of a God. In fact, most of the arguments I've heard for it's existence are logically flawed. They are almost all loaded with circular reasoning, tautological nonsense, and fallacy after fallacy.

Otherwise they say it's faith which is more honest, but is just as ridiculous.

And I asked you to live up to your above statement that you can find verses that "directly contradict" my verses.

It has been over 12 hours and so far nary a whimper...

I will wait... but I know I will be long putrefied before you ever come up with anything that is valid.

In the meantime here are a few more verses you can add to the list that irrefutably prove the extent of your deadbeat sky daddy's depravity... 2 Samuel 21:1-14 and Joshua 7:1-26.... if it will make it easier for you, you can start with these before any of the others... you do not even have to show any verses that contradict them... just do your usual apologetics and see if you can come up with an excuse for why he is not a vile deceiving monster as amply demonstrated in those verses.

In the meantime here are a few more verses you can add to the list that irrefutably prove the extent of your deadbeat sky daddy's depravity... 2 Samuel 21:1-14 and Joshua 7:1-26.... if it will make it easier for you, you can start with these before any of the others... you do not even have to show any verses that contradict them... just do your usual apologetics and see if you can come up with an excuse for why he is not a vile deceiving monster as amply demonstrated in those verses.
It took you an hour? It took me a couple of minutes.

Here's a pretty good list.

Nope... the bible never said that... the REAL GOD of Genesis 1 created humans ... man AND woman together at the same time with his word and in his image and told them to go forth be fruitful and multiply and have dominance over the Earth... entire Earth... read this post.

The LESSER god YHWH ... of Genesis 2... molded mud-man alone no woman ... out of mud... not in his image ... and he was told to be the GARDENER of the garden YHWH made for himself on Earth in which to stroll in the cool of the afternoon.

YHWH then decided to mold out of mud some cows and sheep for "help meet" for the poor solitary lonely mud-man... and when that did not "amuse" him YHWH decided to wrench his baculum and BUILD Eve.

So no... YHWH did not make man perfect nor in his image... he made a callow gardener out the dirt he was supposed to till... and YHWH never intended for Adam to "know" Eve ... when they did he fired them and threw them out of the garden.

I suggest you read Genesis 1 to 3 carefully... and notice one thing... God = Elohim ... The Lord God = YHWH elohim.... Genesis 1 never mentions the name YHWH which does not come onto the stage until Genesis 2:4.

Note: Noah was descended from Seth the third son of Mud-Man and Eve... and since all the creation of Elohim got annihilated by YHWH and only Noah and his family were saved... this implies that the humans whom Elohim created perfect and in his image are long ago gone... and earth is now populated by MOLDED and BUILT out of mud descendants of mud-man who was neither perfect nor in the image of any god let alone God.

Note: All this of course is in the fairy tale universe of the Bible... nothing to do with reality of course.

A very good list... thanks... I will look at it carefully soon... but... I noticed it does not have 2 Samuel 21... also some of mine are not there ... but it has some stuff I do not have.

Also... I use the Masoretic text for the Tanakh (OT) stuff to ensure fairness to the exact meaning and in context and to make sure it says YHWH not something else.

Thanks ... I will make sure to update my list...

ETA: by the way... there are scads more that I did not bother to do because there might be some verses in opposition if construed and wrung apologetically... I wanted a list that cannot have contradictory verses... as far as I can wring and contort... but some apologists might teach me something new one day.

Here's another good list.

https://skepticsannotatedbible.com/cruelty/long.html

Also, Dan Barker a former fundamentalist preacher wrote a pretty good book titled GOD: The Most Unpleasant Character in All Fiction. He lists what he considers the 10 worst Old Testament passages.

Top ten list of Dan Barker is ok... but could have chosen worse things... I have not read that book yet... I am probably going to wait for the Audible version.

A lascivious voyeur... he makes Ananias and Sapphira drop dead on the spot for lying about not giving all THEIR money to the communist cult of Jesus... but he watches and keeps watching all over the world for millennia his caste of licentious perverts ravaging children and does not lift a finger to make them drop dead like he did Ananias and Sapphira.

But an image is not the real thing. God could not realistically make another God, being, as he said himself, jealous. I th8nk we have to give old Jehova the point here. Adam could never be perfect. There's plenty else to blame him for, including making Adam in the first place, since he has to have known what was coming. Really the god of the Bible is just a super-sized kid and the world is his train set.

Nothing more dangerous than a man who is convinced he speaks for God so he acts against others for their own good with God's blessings. The Buddhists have a saying: "If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him!"

CS Lewis famously wrote:

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

Evidently they do not count because they do not exist... as evinced by the fact that you cannot produce any of them.

You still have a chance to respond to this or to this if you want to prove me wrong.

For the first link, most of them are contradicted by Galatians 3:28

The Psalms 68, Matt 10, Matt 15 group form a contradictory cycle.

Seriously.... have you read Galatians 3:28 ... let alone any of the verses in the first link???

And how does that have anything to do with "directly contradicting" the litany of atrocities that YHWH and Jesus did and commanded and advised???

Have you read Matthew 19:12... how is this sordid grotesques turpitude by Jesus "directly contradicted" by any verses in Matthew 10, 15 or Psalms 68... or Galatians 3:28???

If anything ... Psalms 68 and Matthew 15,10 demonstrate further the EVIL that is YHWH and Jesus.... thanks for those!!!
