So.

No free will, then.

Gotcha.

Your bible certainly agrees with you, by the way.

Go read the verse, "no man comes to the father, but the spirit draws him".

This clearly means that only a SELECT FEW get to be "saved", and the rest get bupkiss.

No free will at all.

You are now claiming that Jesus commanded everyone to be... gay?

Or was that bisexual?

Let's see:

Terrorism? Religious. Check.

Wealth disparity? Enabled by deeply religious leaders, elected by even more gullible and religious voters. Religious? Check.

Climate change. Created by the callous attitude of corporations endlessly dumping excess greenhouse gasses in defiance of laws and regulations to the contrary, and enabled by deeply religious morons who think "Jesus is coming soon anyway, so who cares?". Religious? Check.

Education. Efforts to improve education are met with opposition by deeply religious fools who think their "holy" book is worthy to be taught along side actual, reality-based textbooks. Religious? Check.

Crime. Well... among the modern religions? The idea that there are no real consequences for ANY act, so long as you utter magical get-out-of-jail spells such as "Jesus! Forgive me!". The effect of THAT theology, is to create a class of folk who go out and commit crimes, thinking they can get away with it by casting the "jesus/forgive" spell-- only SECULAR LAW doesn't see it that way, and arrests them anyhow. Next, factor in the increasing disparity between the highest-paid "workers" (who also pay little or no taxes) with the lowest paid people who actually DO the work? All supported by the Religious Right in government? Religion again. Finally, factor in an economy which was severely damaged do to predatory and get-rich-quick schemes ENCOURAGED by the same Religious Right-who's man was President for too long?

So.... Religious? Check.

Why?

What makes YOU special, in that you expect an EXEMPTION from the uncaring and indifferent Universe?

The FACTS ARE: the Universe does not care about you-- at all. Neither does the planet.

Most of the universe is so hostile to YOU, that you would die within seconds if exposed to it's conditions (unless you had extreme protective gear--very unnatural).

And the planet isn't a lot better: most of it is covered with salty water you cannot drink, and if you tried to live in it for too long, it would destroy your skin too. Unless you took special precautions...

The vast majority of plants on earth are toxic to you in one or more ways, such that you couldn't eat them, let alone gain nutritional value from them.

There are any number of organisms on earth that would happily eat you as look at you, if given a chance. From the smallest parasitic worms to the larger carnivores. And the herbivores are not much better-- apart from the ones humans have mutated (domesticated), the herbavores would as soon trample you as look at you--they'd prefer you just went away from their habitat.

Then there is the microscopic world of life-- most of which would kill you dead, if they could manage to get past your skin-- and for many even that isn't much of a handicap.

In short?

The universe wants you DEAD, far more than it wants you alive.

So I ask again?

What makes YOU special, that you >>EXPECT<< a rescue when you are down?

Hmmmm?

This is a good example of your civilized culture. Hundreds of treaties broken with hundreds of native populations, and the only option you can come up with is slaughter them, or incarcerate them. All the while referring to the indigenous people as savages, what a joke. You know, kind of what Western/Christian culture is doing in Africa right now.

And there you have it, a demand for justice. It goes right to the heart of a mono-theists claim as to why there must be a God. It's the ultimate entitlement program. You want eternal life, in fact you insist that it's possible, although it's something you can't possibly provide for yourself. You insist there must be justice, somewhere, but can't provide it yourself. There is nothing fair about life. Christianity certainly doesn't offer justice, in fact it doesn't even think the laws of the natural community even apply to mankind.

Oh, how you lie!

In China? They have ancestor-worship, which is similar to your insanity.

In Russia? They have had the Orthodox Christian church since before the Vatican was a place of note. Without a break, too.

As for North Korea? Well-- they suffer under the religion known as "Cult of Personality", similar to your mental-disease, only the god in this case, is supposedly a man.

So religion is still in play, even there.
