In a mothers womb were two babies. one asked the other- Do you believe in life after delivery? the other replies "Why, Of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.
"Nonsense,"says the other. There is no life after delivery. What would that life be? " I dont know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat with our mouths."
The other says "This is absurd! Walking is impossible. And eat with our mouths? Ridiculous. The umbilical cord supplies nutrition. life after delivery is to be excluded. The umbilical cord is too short.
"I think there is something and maybe its it's different than it is here." the other replies,
"No one has ever come back from there. Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery there is nothing but darkness and anxiety and it takes us nowhere."
"Well i dont know says the other, but certanly we will see mother and she will take care of us." " Mother?? You believe in mother? Where is she now?" "She is all around us. It is in her that we live. Without her there would not be this world." " I don't see her, so its only logical that she doesn't exist."
To which the other replied, " Sometimes when you're in silence you can hear her, you can perceive her." I believe there is life after delivery and we are here to prepare ourselves for that reality.
Hey, fractoid, what a stoopid story. The foetus's can hear voices from outside the womb. As for those foetuses discussing anything, remember that air in the lungs is needed for the spoken word.
Isn't your god a male, how did he deliver you? Rectally?

I could be the same way and say gravity is a fairy tale too.
If i were to go to the top of a ten-story building and step off the edge and say " I dont believe in gravity because i dont see it therefore i dont think my body will splatter all over the pavement below." Would that be a logical thing to do?
Hell, you gave into some jacked-up condescending assholery, so why should hate be left out of the game? And if you don't beleive in gravity, so .... that is on you. We don't care, and if you freaks would keep your nasty religions to yourself, we could feel the same way about that too.

I dont know why you want to hate. Its so uncivilized. you need to be nice and say nice things and do something nice for a change. Dont be rude and say bad words and be ugly. What's the purpose of doing that? It makes you feel bad and it makes the other person that your talking to feel bad also. Be nice and be kind to one another. I know your from another part of the world but you can say, think, and do nice things can't you???
Just try please!
If you need any thing else, let me know.

If Christians call the day that Jesus died 'Good' Friday, then just imagine how ecstatic they'll be when they find out that God doesn't exist

Demons do not exist. Like gods they exist soley as images in the mind. There are wholly imaginary.

Just do the math and you will see why this story is clearly a fable.
The mean radius of the earth is 6371 Km.(The earth is not perfectly spherical. Using the mean should give us a good average.
There were mountains mentioned in the old testament, so we have to account for the height of the mountains in figuring how deep the flood would have to be to cover the entire earth. Just for the sake of argument, we will ignore the Himalayas and the Rockies, where many peaks are well over 10,000 feet. Let's assume no mountain over 1Km in height. That's a very generous assumption in your favor.
The volume of a sphere is 4/3*pi*(radius cubed).
That makes the volume of the earth approximately 1,082,657,777,102.05 cubic kilometers.
Adding the extra kilometer to the earth's radius needed to cover mountains no higher than 1 km gives a volume of 1,083,167,663,016.96 cubic km.
The difference between those values is the volume of water you would need to cover the earth to a depth of 1 kilometer. The difference is 509,885,914.96 cubic kilometers. One cubic kilometer is 1,000,000,000,000 liters. So, the quantity of water needed to cover the earth to a depth of 1 Km is 50,988,591,496,000,000,000,000 liters OVER AND ABOVE the quantity of water already in all the oceans, lakes, ponds, rivers, brooks, ponds and puddles on earth.
If you don't have an explanation other than 'goddidit' for where all that water came from and then went, you have to concede that the entire notion is preposterous. Change the depth of the water to reflect the actual height of mountains, and the absurdity just compounds.
Assuming you get over that hurdle, explain how Noah got himself to Australia to round up a pair each of kangaroos, dingos, Tasmanian Devils and Platypus, off to Asia for a pair of tigers, down to Antarctica for some penguins, up to the arctic circle for some polar bears and reindeer, over to south america for a pair of anaconda, some jaguars and some llama, then down the Nile for a pair of hippos and rhinoceros. How did he manage to herd this menagerie thousands of miles, keep the carnivores away from the herbivores, keep all of them fed and disease free, all before the voyage even began? Is that another "goddidit"?
The bible says the flood lasted for some time. So, in addition to the millions of species of animals, Noah would have to have had adequate food to feed millions of animals. How did it get harvested? How did it get transported to the ark? Where did it get stored?
Your claims for the size of the ark ignore the structural limitations of wood as a ship building material. Even a couple of millenia after your claimed flood, the only wooden ships even approaching 300 feet in length either incorporated metal into their design or did not last long. A 450' wooden ship is structurally impossible. Wood flexes too much, and would leak like a sieve.
All just speculation, personal opinion, and hearsay as far as the wood that the ark was made of, pure speculation cause you don't know for sure what streanth the wood was on the ark.

The Egyptian Book of the Dead:

"I stand before the masters who witnessed
the genesis, who were the authors of their
own forms, who walked the dark, circuitous
passages of their own becoming... I stand
before the masters who witnessed the
transformation of the body of a man into the
body in spirit, who were witness to
resurrection when the corpse...
walked out shining...when he came forth
from death, a shining thing, his face white

You have an actual point with your ridiculous tale of stupidity writ large?

No?

Ask yourself that, every time you condemn a gay person to your ugly god's hell, for being born gay.

Ask your self that, every time a starving baby dies from no food, in an area of the world where crops won't grow because of no rain. Where is your god's "mercy" here? Why won't it rain on their crops? Does your god simply not care?
