Church Sign

There are a lot of verses that would be amusing to post in front of churches; try this one:
If a man rapes an unbetrothed virgin, he must pay her father 50 shekels of silver ...Deuteronomy 22: 28,29

I talked to someone well versed in the bible about the verse you posted. The person said that that was when there were very few people on earth and God was trying to populate the earth. My thought was that this would mean God can change biblical morals and laws according to what benefits him, or the situation. This to me, is similar to Sodom. Everyone was "living in sin", so wiped everyone out. Would that qualify as murder?

Trying to populate the earth? I'm thinking that if God could create 21 million species in just a couple of days, that populating the earth with more humans would be pretty easy without needing rape as part of the process (of course dinosaurs were probably eating them as fast as they could be born). PS: Adam named all those animals in one day; he was a really fast talker and I think that Eve took notes to pass on to all the zoologists later on as they were being discovered. Note: I recently read that we have only discovered 10% of the species that exist today and that half of those will be extinct before we get to them. What a hard job being God!!
