You are a lunatic.
Yip, until that 3year old causes WW2 when it gets older.

No, that three year old, dies from intestinal parasites, which came from the ditch water. It is the child of privilege, who will start the war, and it is the privileged who reap the benefits.

Dyslexic The Genesis disease.
Facts are that people with Dyslexic have bigger brains. And most Genesis have Dyslexic.
Dyslexia - The Strange Genius Disease
Dyslexic people are intuitive, highly intelligent and creative individuals who are visual, multi-dimensional thinkers. But because they think in pictures, they have troubles when it comes to letters, numbers, symbols, and written words.

Dyslexics have a larger brain than "normal" people. It is about 10% larger in the right hemisphere.
http://www.coulditbedyslexia.com/know.html
Dyslexia is quite different from ignorance of the basic principles of grammar. A person with dyslexia may perceive letters out of their actual order, or have difficulty distinguishing between certain letters. You spelled 'there' perfectly. The problem is not that you see the letters out of order, or can't differentiate between certain letters, it is that you do not know the basic parts of speech, and substitute homonyms willy-nilly. The bit about dyslexia is just a plea for sympathy and a smokescreen to hide your cluelessness. You lack the cojones to even own up to a mistake.

You are a buybull thumper, and as such, belong to one of it's spinoffs which includes Christainity. You all base your inane bullshit on the god of Abraham's holy books.

Contrite heart? Bull, the liaisons to the gods needed food, and nothing but the best from your flock, will do. But now-a-days all they need is the tithing envelope on time, and a line or two of bequest inserted into your will. The ever malleable god-myth is constantly being revised to fit every whim. What number is your self styled religion in the line-up of thousands upon thousands of Christain religions?
Christianity is idolatry and it is condemned by the God of Israel. Isaiah 56:9-12 "...Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand..." You're right, Christian leaders are only interested in money and they are incredibly ignorant of the Truth. Christians say a house divided against itself will not stand. This describes Christianity and it will be abolished.

I am talking about the after life and you are talking about life on earth. God looked on his creation and saw that it was good, not perfect. God is a Democrat and will ensure that basic worldwide needs are met. These include food, shelter, clothing, and healthcare. Clean water is a human right and necessity.

There is no afterlife-- until and if you can prove otherwise.

So you are batshit insane. Even still.

And your garbage-speak does not excuse the fate of that 3 year old who dies by the age of 6, from drinking polluted water--the ONLY water he had access to.

Not according to your All-Powerful God, it ain't.

That is EFFED UP, sister.

The only good things about religion is the stores are less crowded on sunday mornings and cheap toilet water manufactures make money from old women covering their b o to go to church.

It takes a little insanity to believe in God, but what are you going to do when he shows up? Blasphemy is a deadly sin. When he comes, you will be given only one opportunity to repent. The most important part of that is change.

Thanks for admitting you suffer from a mental illness. Remember it's YOUR mental illness, so "he" isn't going to show up to atheists, because we don't suffer from the religious disease you caught when younger.

Nope, you've just forgotten to prove your god in the first place, and suffer from the mental illness of faith.

There is no afterlife, the lies your mental illness creates do not apply to atheists.

You are lying.

You just said that the kid who DIES from having to drink disease-infested water would have started WW3.

WHICH IS IT, LOSER?

Either your god IS IN CHARGE?

Or your god is NOT.

Free will has nothing to do with either.

Name ONE.

That would not have been saved anyway-- by HUMAN efforts (and nothing to do with your do-nothing god).

And all the DEAD CHILDREN who die EVERY DAY, because your do-nothing god can't be bothered...

.... epic fail on your god's RESPONSIBILITIES.
