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

Again, an all powerful god could make bodies that wouldn't get fat.
Why didn't it?
Wouldn't you give your kids the best?

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...

Leviticus is a historical account of the laws of the Levites. They are not Christian laws.

lol, you just reminded me of something one of my friends said. There was this really obese girl at uni and he goes, "she looks like she's been f*cked by McDonald's." I know that's a horrible thing to say, but it made me laugh how he said it. He did get a clap around the head for saying it tho!!
