It is often said that morality comes from the bible, or that it contains parables about morality that should guide us today. But do you really understand the moral precepts of this Bronze Age book? Have you read the bible cover to cover and actually thought about the contents?
If not, it might be time to open the bible and look. To help motivate you, I've prepared this quiz so that you can see if your morals are in line with those in the bible. Enjoy!Created by: Jim Pyle of Resident Heretic
Michel, who exactly said that Morality comes from the Bible?
Just about any Christian I've ever met, including the Caths.
And Bronze Age Book?!!!
Myths were put down in writing as soon as writing was invented, and that generally coincides with the Bronze Age in the Middle-East. As we've shown elsewhere, the Torah is a re-write of much older myths and has its root in the Bronze Age. The actual writing (and re-writings) of the current edition doesn't really matter.
What are you talking about, really? Which book are you referring to?
As I did not write that quiz, I can only deduct from the questions: he talks about the Christian Edition.
In any case it is just humor and sarcasm.
Michel, That is the fallacy (fantasy, as I said elsewhere) of your argument: the Bible talks about real people that existed in time and space: people who lived in the Land of Israel, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Jesus, Malachi, Paul, tribes from the Hittites to the Canaanites to the Egyptians, and historical facts about Kings, heroes and prophets archeologically demonstrated.
Claudia: Whether what you say is true or not, (I doubt the bible speaks any truth, but that's another discussion), this discussion is about biblical morality. From what I could tell it was based on the OT. So the questions and answers are only fantasy or a fallacy if what is written is fiction, which I believe it to be.
Nevertheless, this is about moral writings in the OT, nobody would call the foul actions that happened throughout that book moral in any sense. And that is the whole point. Truth rings true throughout the centuries unless there is no truth written.
