You probably think that is a witty question to ask. That is something you would have to ask yourself, not me. You are the one stuck on a god working that way, I'm not. Perhaps you are use to hearing voices, I myself would never trust a voice in my head.
I will ask you a question. If you had an adult son and you were out with him, and he got into an altercation with someone, would you kill him if he pulled a knife or gun with the intent of killing that other person just out of anger? There is no threat to his life. Would you kill your own to protect another human being?
I didn't think that was a "witty" question... just a question actually. I'm not stuck on anything actually. In the old testament it's written that god asked his followers to kill their children so it's not a question of whether or not a christian god works that way... the christian god does work that way. lol...I do not hear voices, as I'm sure you don't either as you stated. However that does raise the question of how you "hear" your god "speak" to you. My question to you however still stands, If your god asked you to kill your children or a stranger, would you?

If I'm understanding you correctly... your question to me was... If I had an adult male son who was attempting to murder someone for no good reason and I was a witness to that, would I kill my son in order to save that persons life? I don't have any kids, but I think if put in that situation I would probably try everything that I could to stop my son without killing him. I would not want to kill my child, but I would also not want the other person to be harmed especially if there was no threat to my son from them.

Yes... we know you have zero counter-argument here.
My point is valid: religion is the **opposite** of science.
Science seeks to **understand** the universe.
Religion seeks to re-fabricate it in it's wish-fulfillment image-- and will **deny** any and all facts that contradict religion's claims.
The two cannot co-exist peacefully-- religion will **always** be forced to **deny** science, as science proves over and over, that religion is just a big lie.

Apparently he's not intelligent enough to carry on any kind of dialog. I do see the trend you are speaking of. He has no position on anything, no argument, no rational rebuttal, nothing!!!! Don't you think it s kind of pointless to come to a site like this ill prepared to engage in any kind of meaningful dialog?

Indeed it is pointless.

But pointlessness is one of the hallmarks of a True Believer™.

... what with their god being just a delusion and all.

Don't you love how these youtube clips use a few quotes and spin them anyway they wish....context ignored.

Mainline theists don't have the faintest clue what "god" means to a man like Hawking or Einstein for that matter. It's hard to grasp that an abstract principle of order and harmony can be considered a god versus the interested supernatural entity that supposedly knows the number of hairs on your head.

Who are you or, others, to criticize, Christine? Especially when those criticisms are so emotion based.

Go back and read your older postings on occasion.

Nope those criticisms are based simply on zero tolerance for your deliberate ignorance born of davesworld stupidity and of course you obvious and antiquated penchant for chauvinism.

Your fragile emotions are seriously effected by such criticism and hence the projection but hey, this is the real world and this is a PUBLIC thread. Have you ever considered the concept of a PUBLIC thread? Or perhaps you would prefer something more private where only people who agree with your chauvinistic mentality and davesworld stupidity lurk?

And why do you want me to go back and read what I have written, are you trying to waste my time as you waist every one else’s? You want to highlight something I posted then I suggest you provide links to that post and don’t rely on others to do your work for you.

One of your typical emotional rants. Again.

It's waste, not waist. Getting fat?
