Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Do Christians pass laws that influence your life?

Do Christians bomb post offices?

You have an odd view of Christians.

Why would He?

How would we ever learn if God always fixed everything?

I dunno if Hitler was an atheist, but he certainly liked to use religion to rile up the masses.

Eat well. Go to the gym. Pay taxes. Die. That's not learning anything new.

If we didn't have to concern ourselves with your backward mundanities, then we'd have more time to learn something new.

No that's different. God made man to be with woman. That's totally different than slavery laws.
It's like if the laws changed so that murder is legal. God still wouldn't condone it. You could justly get away with it from your country, but you'll pay the price later...
Let me get this straight, so to speak. You're saying that a god created me the way I am and now it wants to punish ME for that?

But I'm happy with what God has given me and I would always believe in him even if I had cancer. But, I don't understand why God even made death! I was watching a film called afterlife and liam neeson said "to give life importance", then I realized oh yeah that's why I love life because I remember death. Anyway, at the end of the day only he knows! This is all his play!!

I personally think he made us because he was lonely on his own, just like why people have kids, they think they are toys. Parents never asked thier child if he/she wanted to be born, but they always say listen to us we are your parents, we want the best for you, even if the kid don't want that! Maybe God's like that too? I don't know!

Of course he did. He was a smart politician. They all do that. But once elected, his "beliefs" changed.

Strange, huh? That a politician would lie...

Again, why would He force us? He guides us, we know better. Some people get fat, most that do are by choice.

I do give my kids the best. But I also give them the opportunity to fall on their ass, so they can learn how to get back up. I think that's a good trait in any parent.

Learn something new, dumb ass.

Like we learned bacon fat isn't so healthy after all.

And we learned that cooed chicken is better than raw chicken.

It's all learning...
