Quote# 56756

Just cause somehting happens doesn't mean God approves of it.

It's quite clear in Genesis all the examples of Polygamy are ultimately the cause of the family Dysfunction that is now the source of the entire Middle East crisis.

The Foundation f Traditional Marriage predates all those in Genesis 1&2. God only removes 1 of Adam's Ribs and made him only 1 wife.

And yet, God hisself offered David as many women as he wanted, including one that was already married...

And Solomon didn't really have 300 wives, Jacob wasn't really married to both Rachael and Leah at the same time, and the Adam and Eve story, taken literally, does not imply incest within the first generation of humanity.

You dream that crazy dream, girl.

Only one rib? Then why do men have TWO less ribs than women? Explain that, smarty-pants.

"It's quite clear in Genesis..."

Just stop right there.

"... all the examples of Polygamy are ultimately the cause of the family Dysfunction that is now the source of the entire Middle East crisis."

Yes, the entire political quagmire can be reduced to the promiscuity of one's 70th-Great Grandfather. You heard it here first.

"The Foundation f Traditional Marriage predates all those in Genesis 1&2. God only removes 1 of Adam's Ribs and made him only 1 wife."

Lilith. You fail.

...except that God made for Adam at least TWO wives.

Remember Lilith? Y'know, Adam's first wife who had the unmitigated gall to assert that "wife =/= doormat with legs"?

@#913174:

both males and females have the same pair of 12 ribs

That aside, David was awarded more wives by god.

So God isn't omnipotent? Good. Now that that's settled...

"Just cause somehting happens doesn't mean God approves of it"
He's omnipotent so yes; if something happens then he must approve it because otherwise he could easily stop it from happening

God doesn't exist, therefore, your first sentence is irrelevant.

The Middle East crisis has been caused by family dysfunction? Thanks. I've often wondered.

David was polygamous, but your big book of fairy tales says that he "turned not aside from any [thing] that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite." Deuteronomy even gives an inheritance rule for polygamous families.



P.S. If Adam and Eve are our standard for marriage, who were Cain's in-laws?

Ceasar dressing, please. And some of those garlic crutons. This word salad looks pretty pitiful, it needs some help.

And these are the same idiots that say the bible doesn't contradict itself.

Then god is not omnipotent? Fail.

What does polygamy have to do with conflicts in the Middle East?

Did I miss the mention of a wedding ceremony in Genesis?

Obviously, you have yet to read your Bible. You might want to check out Solomon. He was god's choice to build the temple to hold the Arc of the Covenant and he had over 100 wives and even more concubines.

You haven't really studied your bible, have you?

Actually, I believe that god did approve of the eight hundred some odd women that Soloman had in his home.

"God only removes 1 of Adam's Ribs and made him only 1 wife. "

There was actually another woman before Eve. Her name was Lilith and she was destroyed for refusing to sleep with Adam.
She was edited out of the Bible.

Pretty sure someone's said this before me, but Lilith begs to differ :P

King David and King Solomon
Led merry merry lives,
With many many concubines
And many many wives.
But when old age came on them,
With many many qualms -
King Solomon wrote the Proverbs,
And King David wrote the Psalms!

What utter bollocks.
