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!

<quoted text>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.
You're an ex-Christian? Like Hitler....

Huh.

The U.S. Supreme Court met today to decide whether it will hear the case of a religious freedom lawsuit involving the town of Greece. At issue, whether prayers can be used to open town board meetings.

Two Greece residents, Susan Galloway and Linda Stephens, filed suit against the town of Greece in 2008.

They allege the town's practice of opening town board meetings with a christian prayer flouted the first amendment.

"We don't control what is said. We don't even tell people what to say. We don't preview what is said. We just invite them to come and say what they think," said Ray DiRaddo, Greece Town Attorney.

While the Supreme Court met in conference on the matter today, it will not render a decision until early next week about whether it will hear oral arguments in the case in the October term.

<quoted text>We've been over this before. No peer reviewed, legitimate study has ever found evidence that prayer works. When you throw "according to god's will" in there, you can then say "well, guess god didn't wanna answer those prayers." Cop out.
What "legitimate study" has found that there's no evidence that prayer doesn't work?

Remember, it's gotta be legitimate...

A fact is a thing that is indisputably the case.

You claim that "god is a lie" as fact.

Nicely done, there may be hope for you yet. That was a positive claim, and you caught me on it, I cannot prove that your god is a lie, but your religion is based on many lies, thus, it is a valid assumption until proven otherwise.

Actually by now there are more. So how could there be so many variations all claiming to be the only one who is right? How could a god allow such a thing to go on for centuries?

I see you are unable to answer, not even a last ditch effort!
