Old Testament ultraviolence

Since incessant warfare and large-scale massacre has apparently been going on since the Old Testament era, there is no such thing as Middle East peace.

In the Old Testament, kill tallies [on both sides] hit five figures on a semi-regular basis, without the help of modern weapons, so the recent Gaza conflict only counts as a minor scuffle.

I don’t trust any deity who seems to be unable to keep the peace in their own territory, and whose followers are always fighting among each other.

That being said, I don’t think getting rid of religion will make things better. People will just find something else to fight about [those atheist authors are just being naïve and idealistic].

And on a final note, this must be City Harvest’s favourite episode: [give us all your money or drop dead]
