"If God WAS alive, then explain WHY we have so much SHIT in our world, which is ALL Human's doings, so we are not any better off WITHOUT God either!"
Clearly you structured the sentence in such a way that my dummy brain could not even hope to process it. Could you repeat it, but in a way that uses less syllables and more acronyms like the ones you just used?
Uhh.. Just that, you (plural) seem to be thinking like this; "Why did a deadly flood (ie.) happen when God could have just prevented it?" when God himself is never going to do or affect anything that happens on our planet. Just a mere artifice to make big changes in a lot of people, .. and stuff
In my opinion the world would be a better place if religion was completely wiped from existence. It has nothing to do with racism or anything, it's just the concept of religion that bothers me.
I've seen him make replies like that before, to people who made similar arguments as to why God doesn't make any sense.
Politics isn't an organization, what the fuck are you smoking?
And no, I won't stop being anti-theistic.
Hell, you might as well be asking "Why doesn't Bat-man, Super-man or Spider-man intervene?"
Everyone has the right to be an atheist, everyone has the right to be a Christian/Muslim/Jew/Hindu etc.
Can't we just all get along?
Why is everyone so worried about proving their own beliefs, be secure in your beliefs whatever they are. Yes it is annoying when people push their beliefs on others, but both sides do it.
He simply doesn't have any regard for life nor well being of someone,therefore why should he prevent something that can potentially kill millions?
I have no idea though why people hold the opinion that their God is all loving.
It's not like there aren't other crazy natural phenomenons, so how come a flooding is now important? Because of Noah? I don't think Noah ever gathered up (all?) the animals on a boat, but it's not like people haven't done crazy things either.
that's a shitty argument anyway. you can't take the actions of the extreme few and paint everyone with that brush. that's just being crass.
I think everyone should be allowed to have their views, to say otherwise would be heading towards "1984". While I think everyone should be allowed to have their views, that doesn't mean I need to respect their views (for reasons listed in my last post, for example).
affiliating with a religion does not mean you support the inquisition, or the holocaust, or any of the other things. never has, never will. like i said, you can't take the actions of extremists and paint everyone with that brush. no, religion is not perfect, but that's no reason to pick a fight with more than 80% of the population, especially when it makes us atheists look like a bunch of dicks.
I myself am Christian, I've seen some atheists be serious assholes towards theists, but I've also seen some theists do the same to atheists. There are some members of my faith that deserve every asshole comment thrown at them simply because they dish out some serious assholery themselves, but I don't approve of the wide area bashing of religion or the painting of theists as bad people simply because there are people or events that can be traced somehow to a religion. Just because I'm christian doesn't mean I approve of every "in the name of God!" that has occurred in the past. I interpret the bible differently than a lot of christians I know, but thats because i see it differently and was raised to see it that way.
So yes, in some cases I agree, FP is way to hard on religion. But its not like we religious folk did nothing to warrant some of the asshole comments we get.
like, i hope you realize that people won't want to affiliate with / become atheists if they think we're a bunch of assholes
also: the holocaust was not started by a religious group. you seriously should know that.
also jews were considered a race, rather than a religious group.
There is no right way to interpret the bible, not when hundreds of different kinds of men/people have wrote down their versions on the pages, throughout our history.
I'd interpret it down to just "Love thy neighbor."
