No, I'm going that route. I'm just asking how you determine what's real (precisely, not etc.).The same way anybody does. Feel it, hear it, touch it, etc. If we're just going to slowly boil away into an existential argument in which nothing exists please stop this chain of questioning.
Really? And how do you test whether something is real?
That's not what I asked.Do I believe stopping a genocidal army from taking over most of the world was good? Yes I do.
You believe it was good?
Killing millions of people to stop that army could be justify as necessary evil, but that's still evil.
No, Bible verses tend to be full of inconsistencies and metaphors (so they can be interpreted as somebody likes), therefore please write your justifications.So do you want me to just read you the Bible...?
Assuming I agree with you on this example (which I don't), explain how the flood or killing all man, woman and children except for virgins, sending plagues to show off, stoning disobedient children is good?
