Why don't you go out in the middle of a field, holding a 20 ft metal pole straight up, in a lightning storm, and pray not to get hit. And if you don't then you are just lucky.

If your god is all powerful, why do I have to stand in an open field? I can just say it now. God, go f yourself, and strike me down, right now.

Indeed.

Hollywood would have us believe, that with proper remote hacking, an ordinary computer can be made to explode with sufficient force to kill someone.

I would expect an actual **god** to be-- as a minimum-- better at these things than ...**Hollywood**....!!

At the very least.

So.

This god of his ought to be able to cause our computers to explode, killing us most painfully.

That seems to **only** happen in ... movies.

....!!!

Interesting.

Movies are pure fiction....

.... apparently?(removes sunglasses)

........ so is his ... god.

I dunno... buggering armed people has a strong potential to end badly. Especially if it is non-consensual

Apparently his 'god' is so ineffective and weak that the 'deck' needs to be completely stacked in its favor.

I would think that a real 'god' could strike you dead in the middle of a desert and a medical examiner would conclude you drowned

So, Tall Guy, I heven't seen any news accounts of a person entering any lion enclosures in any zoo recently. It is certainly something that would make the news and almost certainly be picked up by the wire services. Are we to presume that you don't trust your god nearly as much as you claim you do? Sure seems that way.

Say what?

Would it not be a better test if you go outside during the next thunderstorm that comes in your area and pray to God to protect you from the storm?

You know because I do not believe in god or gods I would not have faith that the storm would not produce any lighting, but you believe and have faith so your god should protect you.

Ooooh! Or make you dead while you were floating on an Antarctic ice floe--during the winter, and the ME said you died of heatstroke and over exposure to sunlight.

Or instantly change all your internal organs into bronze with no outward signs that they could have gotten in there any other way

Yes! This is rather amusing.

Another one: instantly make **all** your cells instantly dead.

Nobody ever dies all-at-once-- it's always piecemeal (which is why it's possible to donate organs).

The doctors would be quite confused as to how, suddenly, with no outward trauma or toxicity, all the cells were suddenly just dead.

..........

In all seriousness, these lunatics really don't believe in a god who has much in the way of god-like capabilities.

I mean... the comic book character Iron Man had more godlike powers than **any** of the theistic gods I've read of.

After all: Iron Man had apparently infinite wealth...

:)

**ALL** gods-- bar none-- seem to be quite desperate for cash-money....

...WTF?

I just walked across the parking lot in a thunderstorm coming back from lunch, and I'm still here (just soaking wet). Both your challenge and your book of fairy tales are epic failures.

The odds are heavily in favor of his not being struck by lightning. If he stood out there and was not struck, he would attribute that to divine protection, when it is really just a matter of the odds being heavily against a bad outcome with or without divine intervention. You really don't want to have to reply to a bunch of posts to the effect that "Tall Guy stood outside in a lightning storm praying for god's protection. No lightning hit him. Therefore, god exists".

The odds of being struck by lightning in a given year are between 1/750,000 and 1/500,000, making the odds of being struck during a given storm even more remote. Only 9-10% of lightning strike victims in the US die as a result, making the odds of being killed during a storm even an order of magnitude higher. So he was relatively safe with or without his imaginary friend.
