You have never given an answer, you dodge questions make vague unrelated comments and say "its in the bible" But you never answer a question. I think it is because you know that the bible is not real

I do not understand how any rational modern person who can read would believe in a god some desert goat herders in the middle east made up a few thousand years ago.
The fundies here act like the christian cult is an American religion. News flash, you are a part of a religion made up in the middle east, just like musims

Kind of pathetic to watch some of 'em squirm in their own derangement sometimes (not all, because any RATIONAL, logocal SANE person would realize, not ALL atheists are patheTic) isn't it.
Just wish the (same) wouldn't spread their plague of blackened misery onto others!!

Good telling them evil christians!
It's a personal "Constitutional freedom OF" thing... NOT an ego tripping, power questing "control-freakish" thing, no matter which denominational rail post, or fence side, anyone sits upon.

'Cause I don't believe ALL "Christians" are "evil" either...because in MY opinion, to think such would be representative of T-total ignorance.
Kinda like nothing more than low level, animalisTic "herd pack" MENTALity.
That's the kind of stuff that a lot of the darker moments of many of the "histronics and hysteria" times of history are comprised of.

Did you know...before Science correctly identified tuberculosis, people used to think that people afflicted with it were possessed by vampires?
Unbelievable what (non) remedies were practiced in efforts to "cure" the afflicted of such,(non)cures that often just made the spread of the disease even worse.
Classic example of "ignorance 101"...tuberculosis (aka "consumption")in the 1700's.

but if you're saying people were often better off with just plain old aspirin and some common, realistic horse sense sometimes, than what the choices they have thrown in their faces now a days by the consumptive, coniving, care-less-at-times market sof big pharma carnical barkers and snake oil hawkers, I would (ugh) have to agree with you..a little anyway.

No. It wasn't built on "In God We Trust." That was a kneejerk that came later. WTF? Did you flunk out of American History 102?
As aptly as the Constitutional was written, don't you think that if they (the Founding Fathers) intended to write "in the year of our potus 17 hundred blablahblah"...they would've?
But NO, that is NOT what they wrote-they wrote and signed names to-

..."done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independance of the United States of America the Twelfth In witness whereof We have hereunto subscribed our Names,....."

It's my answer lol. Only answer. Your challenge that you don't agree. I believe every word and I'm HAPPY JOYFUL PEACEFUL even when the world crashes around me. You as well?
Here's the thing. He presented you with a classic Christian dilemma called The Problem of Evil. Philosophers and theologians have wrestled this one for thousands of years with no satisfying answer. So there is no way you can possibly give him a satisfying answer.

But you didn't even give him an answer. You dodged the question.

Let's put the question into some context:

You already said God is basically love. Do you also believe that God is all powerful?

If so, consider this story from India:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/mar/03/i...

"But it was two more days before a farmer found their bodies floating in the dark water at the bottom of a deep well in a corner of a paddyfield one mile from their home.

Even then, police initially treated the deaths as an accident. It was not until villagers started blocking the highway in protest that they started to pay attention. Two days later, the results of the postmortem examination came through and the story exploded. The girls had been raped and murdered, the report said."

So here is a case where three little girls were raped, murdered, and tossed down a well.

Do you think God knew this was happening? If so, what reason can you think of for God to allow it to happen?

You already said God is all loving. Is rape and murder a sign of love?

If it is a matter of free will and the murderers were exercising their free will to rape and kill, then how did the free will of the children come into play? They were free to be terrified, in pain, and finally succumb to the dark, cold waters of a deep well?

You can believe in God all day long but this bullsh*t about God being a "loving" deity is just offensive in the face of crimes like this.

Nice try with your lie
Please READ the Constitution.

Pay close attention when you get to the very last paragraph-just before the many signatures of the Founding Fathers.

Ever read Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptists?

If he only knew then, the outcome and cause and effect of socialism abused, over used and gone awry, he would've a surtax right then and there!!!!!!

What? You mean to say that Big Pharma has bought and paid for FDA officials and legislators? Man, am I disillusioned. Whoda thunk that would be possible? I thought the reason Purdue was allowed to make excessive quantities of OxyContin was for the public good - maybe to take some of the flack off of the other "opiate of the masses."

Both 1 and 2 involve faith. I fully admit that. I have said before I believe that's one of the main reasons we are on this earth, to have our faith tested. With proof, there is no room for faith.
How about this: for those that have faith in God, and believe the Bible to be the word of God, why can't there be other records from other groups of people that Jesus visited when He told us he was leaving to tend to other sheep?
And as for 1. That was the purpose of the witnesses of the Book of Mormon. If you read the testimonies of the people that wrote what they saw, they did so to say that they saw and handled the gold plates and witnessed the angel Moroni that brought it forth.
Again I realize faith is required because one could argue that these men were all in cahoots. Though it isn't plausible to me that these men would risk their lives to do all of this, lose everything they had and still die poor.
Some of them even got mad at Joseph at some point and turned away from him but never denounced the BOM and what they said they witnessed.
I only accept truth claims based on evidence and reason. I have no interest in faith.

Think about what you just said. You know it requires faith. You believe evidence undermines faith. You've chosen one story out of thousands to put your faith in. Isn't that a little bit silly?

Regarding Smith, the witnesses are not exactly reliable. They were family, friends, and business partners. And they were not exactly critical thinkers either. They did not in fact see much of anything they claimed to see.

I realize that doesn't sit well with the Mormon version, which is essentially a religious version that promotes the Prophet's magical powers. But reality has no interest in what the LDS wants you to believe, only in what actually seems to be the case.

Who has the golden tablets now, anyway?

Yeah, no one should have to be miserable when there's no need to be, and that guy Jesus really seemed like a pretty good guy.

There is PAIN and EVIL in all the world. No where in the bible does it state differently. We.. People..began the sin problem.. We live with it now daily in many forms. It will not go away until Jesus returns. It rains on the just and unjust. Blessings and cursings. It's what we do with our life after the bad horrible situations/conditions that matters. If they change. We r a super blessed people just living in the states.
GOD does not cause evil. If you KNOW GOD again, you will know these answers. Again it's a mystery to those who don't. These people (you included) I am certain are much more intelligent than myself... But God did use a donkey...He also uses me. I could go on and on but on here ... Nope... It would only be debunked by people who have a BETTER answer. You seek God, then you will have their answer and so will they...it's not my job to prove anything. I already have my proof..
God bless you

While I find this to be utter boloney, I do appreciate the sentiment. I always smile and thank people who say they pray for me because I think they really mean well.

It is ok if you can't address the questions asked here. Rape and murder of children in the full knowledge of your God is probably a pretty hard pill to swallow. And if you think about how many babies are killed every single day across the world by everything from disease to starvation to natural disaster to murder is makes your heart very heavy. Especially when Jesus is supposed to be the one looking out for us.

Night.
