I am not able to have children, but If I were, no...I would not be a parent who would not give my child a bike because they may fall...however I would also not punish my child if they did fall. I would make sure that they knew without a shadow of a doubt that I would be there for them when they did fall.

It's a concept that there is no English word for,but there is a German word for it which is ,Schadenfreude,pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others.
I sometimes wonder if the word was created as a description of the people who would wish others to burn in hell for eternity. It seems to describe most of the evangelical religiots ,perfectly.
Yes-- I'm somewhat familiar with that German word-- and it perfectly describes what I was saying.

Schadenfreude-- a perfect description of **anyone** who worships a hell-using god.

That does not answer my question.

You made a BOLD claim: that there were "many holes" in evolution.

So I asked you to name ONE such "hole".

That you cannot? Proves to 100%, that you are utterly clueless about evolution.

Yet you feel "qualified" to criticize it....!!

Wow.

Ego, much?

And , now discussing the possibility of starvation ..."death is Evil" ..
Death is the Great Unknown, or so the famous authors have written.

To pretend to know--beyond any doubts-- is hubris.

I am not afraid of it in the usual sense, that much is true.

But I do enjoy life, and I'd rather it not be over any time soon.

Since, we each get but once around life's racetrack-- AS FAR AS ANYONE KNOWS -- and that is IT.

So, taking that away from another life?**IS** evil-- since the one time is all that they get.

It's a simple enough concept.

But I doubt you will get it... you don't seem to have the empathy needed.

Yes... god's "best effort".

The fact that **you** are god's representative?

Is an utter and complete fail on his part.

After all: there are billions on Earth from which to choose.

And he (according to YOU) chose... a drunk?(you)

Wow.

Epic fail.

Also , the unrepentant sinner goes to Hell ..fact.. How is this schadenfreude ...???( it means the same thing in English as it does in German )
Well.....

... let's examine that more closely, shall we?

If the **presence** of god equates to....

.... YOU?

Then yes-- the earth is better off **without** god.

As I said-- you are a poster-child for NOT believing in god.

You may wish to ponder that one--

-- you, by being YOU?

Do more to turn folk FROM god than anything **I** could do.

If all of this is true? Then clearly, your god WANTS people to not believe in it!

You are an idiot.

An uninformed idiot: crop failures happen EVERY YEAR over parts of the world.

And even in the USA? People are STARVING EVEN NOW.

Mostly due to you greedy REPUBLICAN policies, but for other reasons too.

Your god could FIX THIS (god, remember?)

But nooooo...

... you god sits by eating popcorn.

I'd be happy to give those to my kid-- BUT.

I would teach him as best I could, about safety. I'd insist on knee pads and a helmet. I'd watch him closely for the first several times wearing them, until I was convinced he could skate without too severely scraping himself up.

BUT I AM MERELY MORTAL.

Your god?

REALLY AND TRULY DOES NOT CARE.

He sits on his couch, eating popcorn, watching the world go by.

DOING EXACTLY NOTHING.

Indeed.

In 100% contrast to the gods of the True Believers™-- who universally sit by and watch.

(or simply are not real-- which is preferable to a god who sits idly by...)

..Did 'you' really write "...however I would also not punish my child if they did fall ."....?? W.T.F ??...You can't punish a child for getting hurt on a playground ..

My point was ,God gives us freewill ( the bicycle )...knowing full well , we might fall off and skin our knees ...( but , bicycle riding is just worth it .)
