Precisely,,,, religions reply to questions or doubhts from enquiring minds is to offer threats of eternal punishment,, in othern words, tow the line or else.<quoted text>
I wish that the atheism forum was not attacked by trolls so often, so that atheists could have real, meaningful discussions about some of the deep topics that humanity throws up, instead of the low IQ replies to idiots sharing their mental illness and telling us we're going to hell.
If I were a God I would be pleased with questions that arise within the human mind. Do we threaten or punish a child that has an enquiring mind,, No, we pass on knowledge, we encourage,, we do not say " Do as I say or else" then dissapear and expect that child to teach all others for eternity. Regardless of what faith an individual may follow, they never stop to think how irresponsible an act this would be. Therefore followers are irresponsible and use excuses such as " It was an act of god" "allah knows best" or " god moves in mysterious ways"
