I just want to underscore the irony and absurdity underlying this post. A person who doesn't even understand where to place commas and spaces is referring to scientists as "dumdums".
And doing it via strawman arguments.
I needed a chuckle this morning. Thanks.
Imagine some of the posters here (and I'm going to actually exlcude YaA from the scenario because he doesn't exhibit the bully, terrorist, know it all, condescending type vitriol that some others do), attending as guests, a consortium of physics professionals at CERN...the guests spewing their ignorance in the usual ill-manner.

Can you imagine some of the looks (at the very least) on some of the REAL professionals faces?

My atheism came from a life of observation and an inherent willingness to be critical of ideas. My parents took me to church maybe 20 times and maybe to a dozen different churches. I appreciate the fact that I saw all those different Christian sects and that I was never forced to engage in their practices. I think this helped me have no inhibitions about being critical of them.
I did used to have a latent belief in something, or fear of it. I was afraid to curse because I thought god might be listening. I remember saying "god damn" quietly once when I was about 11 or 12. Nothing bad happened.
I've been saying god damn ever since, god dammit.
I have to be realllllllllllllllllly po'd to use that one--mostly because it's untelling who anyone would be asking to dammit then.

Wait a minute. You have said countless times you KNOW that god is real and that you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, a man who died 2000 years ago. How is it that you have "no idea" why your god allows such suffering? If you know him so well, how are you so ignorant about this?
I want to know how you can have faith in an all powerful being that does not lift a finger to prevent the rape and murder of three little girls. Please explain that to me.
Remember,*all powerful*. Can do anything. Knows everything. Clearly you find the rape and murder of children to be an evil thing. Yet here it is happening, over and over again. And god knows about it and can stop it.
But he doesn't stop it.
Why?
I think some of you try and use that blame card as some sort of ace in the hole trump card.

Nope..that one doesn't work so good when anyone considers all the "free choice, free will" imperfection and NON immortality of people in general..

That's just poor game of life conceptual skills dude...might want to read some instructions lol.

Serial Apologists - yes. Bible thumpers whose assertions and fabrications are corrected time and again with evidence, references and sources, but continue to re-post the same false assertions again anyway.

I do eat foods that are made from grains - even on Saturdays before dusk. I won't apologize for it because Jesus told me it was okay.

Grain foods are good for people, even in twilight hours sometimes...and I don't think that guy Jesus would hold that against anyone.

Of course you have no evidence of your claim, but we know you are a faith based person.
That Atheists have serious mental issues has been confirmed by various Independent Studies .
As an aside; The postings by Atheists serve to confirm the validity of said studies.
Blaming others for having caused your mental problems does not resolve this very serious problem.

"Were you trying to say that if I watch porn, lie or steal, That I am evil or vile?"
Yes!
None Good, no NOT one!
If you support porn, you support the evil that causes rapes, and cheating!
You cannot swim in the sewer, and smell like a rose!
How about you just admit you don't know what in the hail you're talking about, even when changing one word from watch to support doesn't change the fact that this is the ramblings of one person's opinions that carries as much weight as a water bucket without a bottom.
I asked you one simple question of how you come to the conclusion that a non believer is vile and evil, and this is how you responded. The only thing you accomplished with that answer is proving to the world that a Christian mind can be a dangerous thing. Allow me to emphasize this once again... seek help before you hurt yourself or someone else. How about you get your facts straight before you go around making blanket statements about people you know absolutely nothing about!
You want to discuss the duties of the anal now? It expels feces, pretty much the same way your mouth does. Any questions?

He gave us the cure for cancer... read the Bible!
Where was I when the new conference broke about the Cure for Cancer! Thousands of people are dying daily, and you are telling me and the world, that all those attending physicians had to do was read the bible to get the cure? Is there any other revelations in this book that the world needs to know about? Of course you have 100% proof of what you say is true? Don't you?

As for a lotto win being more of a curse than a blessing, that is your opinion too. It depends on if the person had the mental capabilities of being responsible enough to handle such an immediate windfall. In your case, I agree, it would be a curse.

Fantasy is not the solution to real life problems, but if that's what it takes to make you feel okay inside your own skin I probably shouldn't judge you for it.

let me simplify this for you: If a person is proven to be a habitual liar, and thief, has never held a job in his life, has never been a productive member of society in his life, masturbates while watching children on a playground, then it would be safe to say, he is a vile, evil, and deviant person!

Are you sure?
I would make sure it WAS God first, and Knowing His will, I
really doubt it would be my God, more like your god!
Then, it would probably be like an Abrahamic test, as I would do exactly
what God requested!

"Blame card"? What are you talking about?

If you're going to comment on the Problem of Evil as if you know about it, then you need to *know about it*. This is a deeply problematic religious and philosophical issue that goes all the way back to the Greeks, and most likely earlier.

As I told the other guy, free will does not get you out of this problem. I didn't say two adults made a choice to be bad, I said three little girls were raped and killed. Are you saying that the killer had free will to kill, and the girls had free will to be killed?

God is all powerful, correct? That's the idea of god supported by virtually all of Christian theology. God can literally do anything, with the exception of breaking basic logical truth. He can't make 2+4=5, for example.

But he can damn sure stop a child killer.

And yet what we find is kids are killed, brutally, all the time.

This is a serious problem for Christianity and other religions that posit an all powerful, all loving god. And lots of religious posters on here like to dodge it every single time it comes up. They want to immediately shift the argument to something else.

Do you understand?
