I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.

there are many different ppl that wrote parts of the bible, why do u think it contradicts itself so much. cuz its nto inspired by god, it is a group of ppl that couldnt keep the story straight in their pursuit of power and money and control. what better way to keep the poor from killin the ones with the money and power, put a sky daddy in the pic so that all the poor stay dumb and scared to stand up and say we deserve our share cuz we do the work for the rich to get the money they got. but thanx to god and hell the ppl think they will get teh reward after tehy die therefore becomin the slaves to the rich business owners and such. if it were inspired by god i dont think we would need interpretation and cross referencing and twisted scripture to make it viable for reality and common sense.

Why would an all-knowing, all-powerful deity NOT prevent a school shooting, simply because of a mere law? Do you realize how stupid you sound? Or is your god that helpless? What about all of the rapes and molestation going on INSIDE churches? Hmm. What about all of the violence going on in the world? What about all of the violence done IN God's name?

Please save us this tired argument. It's too easy.

The word Satan means one who opposes. It is a title not a name. The foundation of Satanism is free will, what the christian cult wishes to deny you.
If you really believe in your god than why do you pick and choose from the bible?
