You are.

Why is it that you've never proven yourself right?

That's your own racism mingling with my joke.

<quoted text>You didn't ask for evidence, you asked for proof that prayers were not answered. Perhaps you live in some parallel universe in which the starving children were fed with manna and quail delivered from heaven, but in the real world, they died slow agonizing deaths of starvation, by the tens of thousands, in spite of millions of prayers going up in their behalf. We have only three choices - we have proof here that either the prayer were not answered, or we have proof that this God is the capricious unfeeling bastard child of the gods of Poverty and War.
Or we could allow that there is no God entity that actively involves itself in human affairs.
I opt for #3. The other two choices are too horrific to contemplate.
Again. How do you know those prayers aren't answered?

A: You don't. You assume.

Etc, etc.
Does that make me smarter than you or you smarter than me?
Nope.
I highly doubt you can do all that better than I can. I mean, let's say I don't actually know any of that, I can google it any way and find the answers you think you know. I know what a lathe is, and how to use it, as well as a belt sander and a bandsaw. I know how internal combustion engines work, because I have taken them apart and rebuilt them. But hey, you know it all.

Q: What answer then did God give to the pleas of millions of Christians to relieve the suffering of these tens of thousands of children?

A: No. Let 'em die, but not too quickly. First, they must suffer.

You actually used the racist derogatory term for them when saying you had them work for you, a racist term which I will not repeat.

You know you posted this racist bigotry no matter how obtuse you pretend to be.

I wonder what your Jesus would say about your racist behavior? Best hope he doesn't exist.

Your bible says mere worship is not enough, one must worship and believe correctly or be doomed. With over 60,000 different Christian faiths alone there can be no hope even if the bible was correct. Interesting that god, should he exist, not get all the believers on the same page.

So for thousands of years even most believers would be doomed for hell.

Either he doesn't care or doesn't exist, which is more likely you think?

That it's exactly the response I expected from you. Do you know how many people I've had to correct because they don't know anything about building anything, but they googled it and watch the YouTube video and all of a sudden thought that they could do it. Then someone like me has to come along behind them and fix all the mistakes or, more often, start from scratch and just do it for them.

Good luck with that. Because you can't build a dresser with a YouTube video...

If you properly read my post, you would've seen that I did not post that we worship gods, I posted that we worship God.

There's a difference, a big difference in God and gods.

You also claim to know what millions of Christians are praying for AND you claim to know how God responded to them?!

I made a joke that had the word "Beaner" in it and you identified that as Mexican.

You're the one that turned a joke into something serious and you're the one who identified Mexicans as beaters.

That's your racism speaking, not mine.

Tell it to the 60,000 different Christian religions that all say they and only they have it right.

Again for this god to allow such a wild variation on his so called word to go on for not a decade or a generation but thousands of years without correcting it? Either he doesn't care or doesn't exist.

Remember the bible clearly says believing is not enough if you are doing it incorrectly. 60,000 different Christian religions. Uh-oh!

Name another group of people who work construction that go under that racist term? Oh and show proof to back it up.

Hurry up now bigot! Chop chop!

You can't and you know it. You were caught in your racism and are now being purposely obtuse.

Those Christian morals on display again I see.

Lol!

Ok, I'll play. The fact that thousands of children were starving in Darfur was common knowledge, yet no Christians prayed to their God to alleviate their suffering? Is that it?

Ah, let's don't do that to the poor Christians. C'mon, I sat in churches and heard the prayers. As a Christian at the time, I went to mass events where the children were prayed for. I'm just giving my fellow humans the benefit of the doubt here. Surely we weren't the only people praying to a loving God about this travesty, striving to bring it to his wandering attention. But maybe you're right - maybe Christians in general really didn't give a sh!t. I don't want to believe it, but hey, you seem so certain.

As for how God responded, well, dude - whether "God" was placated with enough prayers or not, tens of thousands of kids still starved to death, didn't they? I mean, that's pretty much fact, ain't it?

Jesu Christo, no matter how we cut it, this "God" still comes out a bleeding ash-hole.
