John- your thought experiment brings up a good point- you can't transmit today's morality climate into the climate back then. We have evolved so much socially since then. It was a different world with different norms. For example, slavery was condoned back then- now it is condemned.

Thought experiment. You (Dick Fisher) are suddenly transported in time
and body to be a Hebrew soldier in the carnage of I Sam 15. You have
your spear poised to pierce a 2 year old toddler.

Go ahead. Thrust!

I suggest you cannot.
