God changed His mind, for the sake of justice. What’s your excuse?


Slacktivist tells the story, and the moral of the story, at “Five women who changed God’s rules.”

So, if God can admit He goofed in the case of Zelophehad’s daughters, what’s preventing any of the rest of us from admitting error?

    Truth wins in a fair fight (Franklin, I think, and Holmes, Jr.).

    What sorts of standards should we use to judge our candidates on, in the coming American national and state elections?

    How about we use a standard that says, “We use facts and data to make our decisions; we are not afraid to change our minds with new facts, new data, or new arguments that reveal new ideas in the old facts and old data?”

    So-called Christian fundamentalists often claim that changing one’s mind is a sing of weakness, if not outright satanism. Not according to their scriptures. Maybe they can come around?

    Isn’t this just an “I can juggle better with your imaginary friend better than you can” story?

    Just let the belief system implode naturally. Propping it up like this is not healthy.
