My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

You're not just talking on handsfree are you? I always check before branding someone a mental.

That is not what you stated.
What I *said* is that time, matter, and energy are most likely to be coterminous. In other words, whenever any of them have existed, so have the others. That is specifically a negation to the claim that time was before the other two.

There is a bible study here that you can use if you so wish:
http://bible.org/seriespage/deuteronomy-21
Or you can of course just render the most extreme atheistic rendering of the text that you want to...
Nothing on that page exonerates the Bible. Israelite soldiers capture and rape women and it is supported by your god.

How do you explain this?
mtimber wrote:
The real question is, why is any of the above wrong in an atheistic worldview?
Doesn't even matter. I can show that your moral system is self-contradictory without appealing to an alternative system.

As it is pretty much the same subject, it does not make sense to deal with it in two places.

You are word for word stealing their argument and you know it. You can lamely claim they got it from the bible but then you have to explain away all the rape incest and putting infants to the sword as your god commanded.
mtimber wrote:
<quoted text>
Oh, so now you think Sye proposed this argument originally?
Okay, if you really want to believe that, then knock yourself out.
You might also want to check out Greg Bahnsen, Van Till and a few others that presented this ontological argument.
But of course, you might pause to notice that they all quote the same bible passages as their foundation.

So your god if reason love and logic dooms trillions of people to suffering death and war because a woman was tricked by a talking snake into eating a magical apple? Planes are flown into buildings because of Eve's dietary habits and you thinks this makes perfect sense?

Don't strike down Eve noooooo cause trillions of people to suffer instead. I mean it's not like god swore that on the day of eating the magical apple that Adam and Eve would die or something.....

Oops that's exactly what he said!

If that is how your god operates he is indeed retarded.

In Eden, Eve was offered the opportunity to reason apart from God.
Foolishly, she decided that that was desirable.

Engaging in rational thought to answer transcendentant questions is of no value to you?
Then why are you then arguing that reason is circular and self attesting?
You realise these are philosophical issues you are engaging in.
Another inconsistency in your worldview.
You are not selling your atheism very well.
I have to abandon reason and philosophy, to be on the same intellectual level as you...
Atheism is easy to sell, since he slaps all religions which are myths and non existing!

Yes, humanity is imperfect, your god did a horrible job in "making" us, didn't he?
Anyhow, let's look at your book, the bible was written by imperfect humans, based on stories heard from imperfect humans, which was then translated by imperfect humans several times. How can even you belief it is a perfect book?
As far as history concerned the bible is more of a book of fairy tales nor more!

You want to present the idea that the problem is a lack of evidence for God.
That is not the case.
The problem is, is that your mind is at enmity against Him.
You are at war with Him.
This is obviously true and revealed by the antagonism of your posts in regard to Him.
God is just a myth nothing more!

Good riddance.

You know people are different, so if is a basic issue about atheism which may be uniting but divising too! The front against the religions is of course nesessesary.
