You are missing the point. The interesting thing is that they actually recorded the violence to be studied forever instead of censoring it like we do. That in itself is impressive. Why were they honest, and we are so deceptive and censor everything? They accepted a red pill world. We live in a blue pill bubble.Paracelsus said:I'll say the same thing to you as I said to dear old Kavi when it comes to this false equivalence between the Bible and the Koran, Sherman: find me the section of the Bible in which Jesus advocates cutting off people's heads. Or raping captured female prisoners. Or where Jesus said it was cool to marry and then fuck nine year olds, something Mohammed not only endorsed but actually did.Sherman said:What you should notice is that the ancient religions were really up front about their violence and even recorded it in books so that people could remember it for centuries. Today we think we are more civilized. But this is a blue pill delusion. We are actually more violent because technology magnifies our violence. The sanctions on Iraq killed over a half million Iraqi children. And the bombs from drones, most of which miss their targets, kills innocent people. We are never allowed to see the actual gory result of what Western bombs do. It is 100% censored from our view. So we can continue the delusion that we are civilized and better than others, like Muslims. Total blue bill. Appreciate the ancient texts. They put everything up front in writing instead of censoring it. They allow you to see what the US media censors from your view. The Bible and Koran are as red pill as you can get.
And as for the Old Testament? You can quote every recorded Israelite massacre you like, but it still doesn't override the Ten Commandments that lie at the heart of Judaism: thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not commit adultery, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's goods, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, etc.
Frankly your reasoning around religion isn't much better than your reasoning about North Korea's Lil' Kim being, and I quote, "a good man."
The death toll Muslims enacted on other religions and on each other across fourteen hundred years far outweighs any death toll Christians enacted on Muslims, even allowing for modern technology. And let's not forget a fair proportion of that Christian vs. Muslim death toll is enacted in self-defence, i.e. due to hordes of Muslims who can't stay the fuck in the desert and prefer to go get Spanish, Bosnian, Croatian, Greek, French, Russian, Indian, and Italian pussy.
