Atheists, where exactly does the Bible condone slavery, genocide, etc. Christians please comment too.?

For one thing, in Exodus Chapter 21 (verse 2), it clears up the slavery thing. They were actually indentured servants, NOT slaves. If you bought them, they would work for you for six years and in the seventh year, they would be freed. Also, God thought slavery was wrong, but he knew people would do it anyways, so he came up with laws to PROTECT slaves.

As far as the genocide thing goes, WHERE do you see that? What specific verses?

God ordered Moses to kill off some tribes because they were wicked. It had nothing at all to do with the fact that they were foreigners. Read the Bible and it clearly states that every single one of the tribes practiced human sacrifices. Just read the verses. Historical and archeological evidence backs up this claim.

The Canaanites, the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites were evil.
