God is just like your parents. Your parents created and feed you to grow to make this world a lively place to live in. If you think that it is pointless to have parents, you won't be here. God gives life to a soul in a created/growing/evolving flesh. The Heaven is for the Spirit that leaves the flesh after it dies of old age; it is the ultimate place where we will spend the rest of our life singing hymns praising God the King. In Heaven, we will help God to take care of every human in this world and try to bring all of them together in the spirit of God.
<quoted text>
In fact we already had all the essential things here that God had provided us. Mankind had survived in many corners of the earth, no matter how hostile the environment be coz they know how to make use of the things that God had created. All we have to do is to worship God only and He is happy with our little effort to love Him coz He had loved us so much.
Why should I allow that same God to tell me how to raise my kids, who had to drown His own?

And he brought forth the people that were therein, and put them under saws, and under harrows of iron, and under axes of iron, and made them pass through the brick-kiln: and thus did he unto all the cities of the children of Ammon.--2 Samuel 12:31

10 important questions to be asked by any rational person as a guide to the question of whether or not there is a God.

GET TO WORK GODBOT... ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS FOR US! ASK JESUS FOR HELP!

1. If logic is the hallmark that separates man from beast, why is religion then a matter of “faith”, rather than rationality?

2. If something cannot be proved, then why do people continue to believe in it?

3. If there is a God, which is the real one and how come when a culture no longer exists neither do its gods? Isis? Ra? Neptune? Zeus? Apollo? Thor? Quetzacoatle?

-- Alternate Question if 3. Is irrelevant to you –
3a. Why is your religion any more valid than other religions?
Catholic, Protestant (any of many sects) Islam? Judaism?
Buddha? Hindu?

4. If the Christian God is monotheistic how can it also be triune with Jesus & the Holy Spirit?

5. If God was the father of Jesus via the “immaculate conception”, wasn’t Mary technically raped & impregnated against her will?

6. If Jesus was born to a mother who was unwed doesn’t that make him a bastard?

7. If “Christ died for your sins on the cross”, how much of a sacrifice was it really, considering he’s immortal?

8. Why do people continue to believe in religion’s gods when promises made for thousands of years have yet to be delivered, whereas, science has shown us the earth is NOT flat, the earth revolves around the sun and not the other way around, medicine heals but prayers don’t, and although we can’t literally walk on water we can circumnavigate the globe underwater in a submarine and fly to the moon?

9. If God made the earth and then created a great flood to wipe it out, how could a perfect, infallible being make something needing to be destroyed and begun anew?

10. If God “gave his only son” to save us from our sins, then why do we have to do anything?

Why?

Humans are so obsessed with the "why" of everything, when sometimes there just isn't a why to quench their thirst for a reason.

According to the buybull, it is the sperm and not the egg which is sacred. I really believe that not one of the biblical entities ever considered that the female was any thing more than a vessel in which to spill sperm. Surely if their god did not know that there was an egg involved, why would they?

I agree, but DA believes in an ungod. Sort of the negative image of a god, not being controlled is so foreign to him that he cannot even think that there is a possibility of an absence of a god
What he will read in your post is that humanity is in need of the god, which is no-god. This non-being is who DA thinks that, we who are atheist worships.

Excellent question:

Few gods throughout history demonstrated genuine compassion, and none less than the bible's god.

If the bible's god were true? That god-- based on the bible's portrayal of his actions-- would have wiped out people long, long ago.

True with the majority of non-bible gods as well-- they are all notoriously short tempered...

It makes perfect sense. He is trying to protect everyone from satan.
If you don't believe in him, satan will be your best bud in the lake of fire.
It all goes back to Adam & Eve. Everything was just fine until she listened to the serpent (satan) and convinced Adam to take a bite.
They should have listened to God.
Satan, Adam and Eve, Jonah and the Whale, Noah's Ark, etc. With all due respect, in this day and age you simply sound goofy. I've had enough of the elaborate explanations on both sides of the fence. This is what it really comes down to.
