Mailbag: Denying God, Part 2

Jun 20, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: About.com

'Is there really a God?' Though there are a variety of possible responses to this question, there are three traditional responses that predominate in Western society: God does not exist: atheism; we cannot know whether God exists: agnosticism; and a personal God does exist: theism.

Do not underestimate the power of God's word to show you how you don't measure up to being a holy or righteous person. The Bible warns people that if you are not going to serve God his way, don't bother, it's better that you don't know the truth.
1Peter 4:1-3
You don't HAVE Gods word. The bible was written by iron age people, is known to contain errors and later additions, contradicts itself, presents a creation myth that is clearly just a retelling of other prevalent (and incorrect) iron age creation myths, is full of the kind of ambiguity routinely used even today to dupe the gullible, and describes a God that sounds more like the campfire stories an 8 year old would make up to frighten the other 8 year olds (or a petty, ignorant, bloodthirsty iron age goat herd would make up to frighten his neighbors)--rather than the creator of the universe--all 80-100 BILLION galaxies.
Let's face it. There is no rational reason why anyone would accept the bible as anything more than what it is -- iron age religious propaganda, no different from that of a hundred other cultures, except by having learned by their example how to do propaganda well. You only accept it because you were indoctrinated into voodoo thinking as a child. You can't convince anyone else to accept it unless they have already been indoctrinated into voodoo thinking. You have NOTHING to support your belief except that bible, and you don't even believe the bible, since the new testament clearly (in several places) says that Jesus's coming has not invalidated the law of Moses, and the law of Moses REQUIRES you to do a number of things now considered to be crimes against humanity.
So you go around quoting scripture, but you don't study the textual scholarship behind it do you? You probably think revelation is a prophesy, instead of a political work using symbolism to avoid the wrath of the (roman) government.
Theists must work very very hard to avoid understanding any of the wonders we have discovered about how the world really is. They twist and distort any inconvenient data in order to protect a comforting children's story. And meanwhile, they use the antibiotics and the MRIs, the cancer treatments and the plastic explosive that are all of the same forge as evolution, and pretend that one can be true while the other is not.
While it remains socially acceptable to rave on about infantile stone-age magic, theism will continue to foster and cover for real extremists who spend less time rationalizing and simply read scripture and act on it--with whatever weapons are available.
Repent the only real human sin--that of wasting your intellect. Let go of your stone-age book of instinct and let reason set you free. Reason makes no promises that cannot be kept, and offers only the hope and the comfort that THIS is a marvelous world, and we CAN work together to make our time on it fulfilling and peacful.

You have no idea of the gifts that Jehovah God gives people who don't even know or worship him.
Besides allowing you to live on his earth, and providing all the things necessary to sustain your life.

The fool is truly identified today, that is the man who says to himself or out loud, there is no Jehovah God.

Wow, make-believe sure is fun.

How about some proof of this BS you spew?

Things such at tornadoes, cancer, rickets, malaria, viruses that kill 3% of the worlds most innocent each year, earthquakes, over population, chromosomal abnormalities, mental illness, and preventable resource exhaustion. Yes, aren't we lucky we have no need to use our brains.

Life is what hydrogen, nitrogen, carbon and oxygen get up to anywhere conditions are remotely suitable for them to combine in complex ways. These are the four most abundant elements in the universe, for simple, physical reasons. And out of 80 billion galaxies, each with about 100 BILLION stars, there were bound to be a few places where conditions were right. Perhaps God created the universe with these laws, but there is no evidence whatsoever to support that conclusion.

Reason is what separates man from the animals. Understanding based on EVIDENCE is what makes us human. Anything else is just using the brain to simulate instinct. Only reason allows man to survive and prosper in a world in which he is out matched in almost every other way.

You have no idea the gifts that reason gives even to those who seek to undermine it. For a start, we long ago surpassed the ability of nature to FEED us, and without the Haber process for extracting nitrogen from the atmosphere, half the world's current population would starve immediately. Likewise, without modern weather forecasting, energy supplies, and international commerce, billions would starve. And without our technology, we have little hope of handling the coming changes in climate with anything but barbarism, to say nothing of other events that are sure to confront us in time.

So enjoy your cult.

Typical response from a mental retard. You are lost and I have scientific evidence to prove it.
MRI scans of atheists brains have proven that they are mentally challenged and the book "How God Changes Your Brain" has the documentation that proves it.
Typical christian BS. When evidence fails, they just make something up!
