p.s we’re also digressing here, how can you believe that the most powerful, all knowing and loving creator of the universe would literally ask one group of humans to completely slaughter another for the purpose of vengeance? To actually go into detail, to leave no doubt on who to kill. To explicitly state that women, children and infants, and donkeys be slaughtered? Religion is a sick, immoral set of writings, written by sick, immoral, savage and quite ignorant men and your defense of it places you in that company. You seem to be a smart guy, who has unfortunately been indoctrinated since youth, as I was. It can be hard for some if not impossible to break the elephant ropes, but try you must.
