Epicurus (341 - 270 BCE)

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.

Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.

Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?

Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

Man is the enforcer of evil . God is willing and able , But man has free will and carries out the deeds of evil , not God . Is God the blame for all the evil that goes on in the world? No! man is and you should stop bashing God for the thing's we do and cause to happen . I can see that something has happened to you to cause you to have such a hatred toward God but you must understand that the world was a perfect place without sickness and heart ace , evil or pain until man messed it up . And man is still causing ALL the pain and harm to mankind and to the earth where we have to live. God can control the elements but He can't control man who He has created to be a free agent .

On the contrary, how could I have a hatred for something that does not exist?

I do not believe in any gods because there is absolutely no evidence to support their existence. I suppose another way to look at this would be to say that I do not believe in gods for the same reasons you do not believe in unicorns, fairies, etc.

As Carl Sagan famously said,“Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.” That a god exists with the characteristics attributed to the Christian god is certainly an extraordinary claim. And yet, there is simply no evidence to support this claim.

Faith. You have to have a little faith my dear. Can I ask you another question?? Have you always been an atheist? As a child did you believe in God? I'm a stranger to you & it's none of my business but I'm curious.

Why should I just have faith in your god instead of having faith in Alah or Vishnu?

I was indoctrinated as a child to be Christian, just as I would have been a Muslim had I been born in the Middle East. I left religion as a whole when I was freed from the grips of my parents household restrictions. I haven't looked back on that lifestyle since and have been much more happier and satisfied with my being than I ever was with religion.

If you're that happy then why are you posting about God being evil?? You say that you don't have hatred towards God but it sure sounds like it in your first post. I wish you the best & hope that regardless of your beliefs you have a happy life. I appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions honey. Good Luck!!!

The first post was only a quote that Epicurus made. I used it as an ice breaker. Like I have stated, one can not have a hatred for something that doesn't exist. You may try to reason it as to, why would I make theses posts then; I do it to help people think and question.

You sound like a very intelligent individual, so why the God stuff? Why not get people thinking about other things? Besides, how do you know I don't believe in fairies & unicorns :P

If you do, I guess it would be no worse than a "god". At least to my knowledge, according to the tales, unicorns are supposed to be peaceful and not jealous killers that demand you worship them or go to hell.

Then why are you wasting your time being mean toward someone that you don't believe exist ?

I have a question. Why do atheists feel the need to constantly make posts about a god that they claim to not believe in?

Same thing could be asked of Christians that constantly post online about a "god" they claim to exist. Actually, I'd like to know how many Atheists you have ran into on the street stopping people trying to talk to them about their beliefs or coming to your door.

I just went to that website and I still don't get it. It's not often that you see post by Christians telling people they are gona burn in hell. You seem very angry and confused to me. I just don't see what it is you're getting out of being rude to people that believe in God. What's it to you? How is it affecting your life if your friend or neighbor believes in God?

It's not the fact of what you choose to believe in. The problem I have with Christians anymore is when what they believe in interferes with my life and others like me. Christianity is pushed on to everyone in this country. This place is turning into JesusLand! People always making this false statement that this country was founded on these beliefs when the founding fathers always made statements of keeping the church out of government. The reasons for founding this country was for freedom from the oppression of the Church of England. You stamp it on our money, push it into the countries pledge (when not all who have fought for freedom were believers), deny people of marriage, etc. all in the name of your deity. I'm not mad at your 'god'(since I can't hate something that doesn't exist), I hate how Christians push their beliefs on everyone.
