Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Our weather's good between the storms. I was watching Glastonbury out in the garden into the wee small hours until my dog started barking at Win Butler's eye make up. Do love Arcade Fire though, seen them live twice.

Our balmy high summers, midsummer’s day was 4 days ago, the last decent day we had. We had about a week in the almost 20s to low 20s and no rain for two weeks. For the last three days it’s been overcast with a light wind blowing from the artic (brrrrr) and today we have had showers.
Further south it’s worse, heavy rain, flooding and thunder storms (I feel for Thinking) but it is Glastonbury weekend so it’s excepted. The weather does not usually stop the show but it has done, this weekend…

Let's start with god's entrapment story.

The Adam and Eve story doesn't make sense. If they were commanded to do something and did not *before* they had knowledge of good and evil, then they were imperfectly designed.

It was the designer's fault.

We had a PM (Brown) that threw fax machines at the wall when they didn't work. He was a psycho, too.

So when is your god going to give his vengeance for his own f**k up a rest?

It would seem so. In a great many things we question why is this part of the plan? Why must we go through such anguish, and suffering? It can be difficult at times to hold on to faith in the midst of peril, when betrayal, or senseless affliction come our way.
But think about it, God loved man enough to give him dominion over the earth. When he created Adam he did three things. He told Adam to name the animals, gave him dominion over the plants and animals, and told him not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. He gave Adam a job, a purpose, and a commandment. Right from the beginning. Any commandment implies choice. God would not have to command anything if we did not have it.
Would you rather not have choice? You have made the choice to walk away, would you rather not have any choice at all? To be compelled to love God? Or perhaps you are wishing for something that we all wish for that just doesn't happen - We want choice, but no consequences for making the wrong choices. But what kind of character does that build?
Is it unfair that God doesn't knock the guns out of the hands of murderers, or strike tyrants dead? But if He did strike tyrants dead, some would judge that to be unfair as well. Should He involve himself more deeply in the lives of men in order to prevent them from being wicked? Or would someone else just complain about His handling of those situations.
Compassion, power. If this is all there is you are absolutely correct, God either can't or won't make our lives supremely happy. But, some of what we are entitled to is not for this life. This life is about being grateful, building character, walking by faith, trusting God, furthering the kingdom and is but the blink of an eye to all that is in store.
Thnx for sharing your MYTHOLOGY

Thanks for bringing that up... My avatar is what it is for a particular reason. It is a transitional fossil in human evolution that so many fundies say does not exist. I know it exists, I have seen it, touched it, measured it and was on the team that discovered it.
And you avatar is a grey ghost outline in the fog, we (the royal we) just can't help to wonder what kind of life choices did that to you?
..oh , honey bunny ..do you have a " name" for that hominid ...looks , homo sapien

As, for my profile Id , I'm fat and have the acne ..not really the ghost grey outline, I appear to be ..
