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.

Let me help you,
Which is more? 200 million or 6 Billion?
Yes of course the #200 is larger than the #6 but you have to consider the word behind the number.
Which is more? Million or Billion?
The letter “M” is 13th in the alphabet and the letter “B” is 2ond. That doesn’t mean the letter “M” is greater than the letter “B”.
I think we can say 6 Billion is more than 200 million.
Do you agree?

We shall all die. Everyone that is born is going to die. It’s part of the life process. I have not suffered the loss of a newborn in my personal life nor has anyone near me.
I know it happens and many are saved through modern medical science. If you ever visit some of the old cemeteries that go back into the 1800’s. You will notice a large percentage of baby graves.
I hate it when children die. I hate it even more when children are abused by adults. Mistreated, starved, beaten, hated, locked in cages.
Death is a threshold we shall all enter into, both young and old, great and small.
That is some nice story-telling.

But it fails to explain why your god refuses the endless prayers of parents and nurses, to save the lives of infants who are dying.

Why does your god make seemingly random "miracles" here and there, but refuses to help the most innocent of lives?(infants)

There are some bad ministers and some that are exceptional. It’s more than delivering a sermon but being on call 24/7 every day of the year. It’s the phone ringing at 2:00am because someone was in a car wreck.
Counseling families, couples, performing weddings and funerals. It’s visiting the elderly in nursing homes. Being involved in the community. Making daily hospital visits praying and encouraging the sick.
Then there’s the counseling the teenager that ran away. Helping a Mom and Dad to understand it’s going to be ok their daughter is pregnant at 17. It’s work, a lot of work. There’s more work than what one man or woman can do.
Despite all that people expect them to be cheerful, happy, and above all perfect. People can have unreal expectations.
That is all nice and stuff.

But.

I **do** expect, that from a god-blessed PULPIT, that the minister sticks to the actual truth.

And does not lie in obvious and easy-to show ways.

IF.

IF there is a god who gives a **damn** who is representing his message?

Then I would expect some divine censure against preachers who LIE.

Is this the case?

Nope.

In fact?

IT NEVER HAPPENS--EVER.

Hmmmmm.....

Who?

I spent 40 years seeking a god I could trust.

God?

A complete no-show. Never bothered to show up, not even one time in 40 years of looking.

Care to explain?

I had Romans mostly memorized at one point.

But.

The **FACT** is?

God has always and ever been-- entirely missing.

Always.

For you, too-- you just lie to yourself, to claim otherwise.

By what standard do you judge Him,
I expect gods to -- as a BARE MINIMUM -- be AT LEAST as moral as mortal humans are.

Is this the case?

Nope.

Human parents would do **anything** to preserve the lives of their children.

Is this the case with your god?

Nope-- he allows people--- babies-- to die every day.

HE DOES NOTHING.

As if he wasn't even there at all...!

But if your god IS THERE?

HE IS LESS MORAL THAN MERE HUMAN PARENTS.

you must have bought it twenty times huh?LLL
bible may be most printed book but doesnt even come close to being a best seller
best selling books of all time
Do keep in mind that the list makes a distinction between "most published and distributed" and "best selling."
That eliminates contenders like the Bible, the Qur'an, and Quotations from Chairman Mao. Too, sales figures for individual Harry Potter and Twilight books are, for some reason, said to be so unreliable that they are not included in the list (although the Potter series is estimated to have sold more than 450 million copies in total, and the Twilight series, some 116 million copies).
If we accept these standards, the best selling single-volume books of all-time are said to be:
A Tale of Two Cities - Charles Dickens - 1859 - 200 million copies +
Le Petit Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupery - 1943 - 200 million
The Lord of the Rings - J. R. R. Tolkien - 1954-1955 - 150 million
The Hobbit - J. R. R. Tolkien - 1937 - 100 million
Dream of the Red Chamber - Cao Xuequin - 1754 - 100 million
And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie - 1939 - 100 million
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe - C. S. Lewis - 1950 - 85 million
She - H. Rider Haggard - 1887 - 83 million
The Da Vinci Code - Dan Brown - 2003 - 80 million
Think and Grow Rich - Napoleon Hill - 1937 - 70 million
The Catcher in the Rye - J. D. Salinger - 1951 - 65 million
The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho - 1988 - 65 million
Steps to Christ - Ellen G. White - 1892 - 60 million
Lolita - Vladimir Nabokov - 1955 - 60 million
Heidi's Years of Wandering and Learning - Johanna Spyri - 1955 - 50 million
The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care - Dr. Benjamin Spock - 50 million
Anne of Green Gables - Lucy Maude Montgomery - 1908 - 50 million
Black Beauty: The Autobiography of a Horse - Anna Sewell - 50 million
The Name of the Rose - Umberto Eco - 1980 - 50 million
The Eagle Has Landed - Jack Higgins - 1975 - 50 million
Watership Down - Richard Adams - 1973 - 50 million
The Hite Report - Shere Hite - 1976 - 48 million
Charlotte's Web - E. B. White - 1952 - 45 million
The Ginger Man - J. P. Donleavy - 1955 - 45 million
The Tale of Peter Rabbit - Beatrix Potter - 1902 - 45 million
Let’s do some more comparisons.

The Atheist Manifesto: The Case Against Christianity, Judaism, and Islam has sold 200,000 copies.

The Bible: 6 Billion copies sold and or distributed.

Flat lie: I would cheerfully accept PROOF that a god or gods are real.

Seriously.

BUT YOU DO NOT EVEN TRY AT ALL.

I would **love** for there to be a benevolent deity watching over humanity.

But there is NO FACTS that support that idea.

None at all.

Is your reasoning infallible?
Your question does not apply:

You cannot prove your god is REAL.

Therefore?

Your god is NOT real, by DEFAULT.

Reasoning isn't the issue, here.

Even if a limb was restored you wouldn't believe it because that means God would have to Have access to you.
Lie:

If the restored limb could **only** have been due to a GOD, intervening?

That is: someone loses an arm, then someone prays, then the arm grows back?

THAT WOULD PROVE THE PRAYER WORKED, and would suggest the god was real.

CAN YOU DO IT?

CAN YOUR GOD RE-GROW AN ARM?

No?

Seriously: your god is a monster, by which all others pale in comparison.

IF.

If your god is actually real.
