No....it is mainly religion and the Books it is based on that contradict. How can people apply a contradiction? Really??? Not to my knowledge. Refer to the quotes below: Leviticus 19:18 - You shall not take vengeance or bear any grudge against the sons of your own people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD. Seems pleasant and Humane...... Exodus 32:27 - And he said to them, "Thus says the LORD God of Israel, 'Put every man his sword on his side, and go to and fro from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbor.'" 28 And the sons of Levi did according to the word of Moses; and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men. Seems to me that this act was very unhumane. Please recognize that this is a direct contradiction of the first quote. And Understand that the Bible sends out many contradictive messages. The contradictions lay within the Bible itself. That's the focal point I'm trying to make. Just for the record I agree and live by the first quote.
