Welcome to this episode of "Blame Mankind First." Today, we will posit the existence of a race of mortal men of limited power and influence, and of an omnipotent god that says that it loves them. Then we note that many of the people are starving despite this all-powerful, loving god. Who shall we blame? If we're Christian, we blame mankind, because we must NEVER EVER find fault with the god, however little it does to help.

I gather you are implying there is not enough food to feed all the people in the world? Welcome to the episode of "Looking through closed eyes"
No, Serah. I said nothing like that.

You can open your eyes now.

Today's Prayer

Dear Lord, It's time for spring cleaning! I want to start fresh with a clean mind and a clean house. Please forgive me where I have failed. Help me to live a holy life, acceptable to you and a witness to my world. Help me as I clean my physical house, also, to know what to do with all the things I do not need. Show me what person or what service organization could benefit from those things. And Lord, open my eyes that I may see, also, what I may do to "spruce up" my church this spring. Is there something I can clean, fix or decorate? Is there a special project that I should donate my time or money to? I am open...and I am listening. Guide me, please. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.

Prime time with God

And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.

Whether you want to admit it or not, you believe random and accidental forces made the air people and planets.
The forces are not random. They are directed. And the continuous application of directed forces can produce complexity.

For example, gravity always attracts. If you apply this directed forces to scattered matter, it forms solar systems and galaxies out of gas clouds

And natural selection always chooses the most fit variation. That directed forces can yield intellectual apes from microbes over deep time.

secular science is conceding what they thought they knew about where planets and humans come from there are more questions than answers.
Nonsense.

You should probably know that secularists don't accept scientific opinions from theists and their antiscientific agenda, but rather just from the consensus of scientists in good standing in the relevant scientific fields.

<quoted text>Enjoyed the discussion and banter though, nice job.
So why did you suddenly drop the subject of your thoughts on a god that just went "poof" and "poofed" everything else into existence?
Did you finally realize how hypocritical and stupid your comments were?

There was a lot of food, great food even (grandmas know best).

FAIL
There must be people other than Christians who think and say things like this, but in my world, whenever I see this degree of muddle, it's always a Christian. Your church dogma scrambles your mind like an egg.
Such thinking serves a church that relies on you accepting the absurd and rejecting the evidence of your senses and your reasoning faculty.
<quoted text>
That's a misleading oversimplification.
The central tenet of the theory of evolution, for example, cannot change: All species have descended from a common unicellular ancestor over deep time due to the natural selection of undirected and heritable genetic changes in gene pools. This is caused by mutation and gene recombination in individual organism, and leads to their differential survival rates as individuals in populations compete for scarce resources and to escape predation. This process accounts for both the diversity of life on earth and its commonalities.
The details of how this happened may continue to come into view over time, as occurred when Gould introduced the idea of punctuated equilibrium based on the fossil evidence. He suggested that the evolutionary process stutters rather than proceeding smoothly, alternately going through periods of rapid evolution and periods of much slower change, thought to be due to anomalous environmental stresses such as massive asteroids, periods of intense vulcanism, and ice ages. When the world changes relatively quickly, life changes more quickly with it.
But that refinement doesn't alter the central tenet described above, which is a fact that cannot be upended with less than a radical hypothesis like Last Thursdayism or a matrix reality (brain in a vat). There is too much evidence.
After your name calling part. I agree. The central tenet of The Theory of Evolution.

Nope. There is no counter set of facts for evolution, for example.
They may have told you otherwise in church, but you should listen to people that don't have a motivation to do violence to reason, not your priests.
I learned about these matters elsewhere and got a much better education than you did. My education served society at large, and still serves me. Your education serves just your church, and harms you and the rest of us.
Theory. Jesus is my Priest. I don't go to church. I am The Church. Might I suggest a nap. Perhaps when you wake up your mind will be fresh. And you will be better able disguise your attempt at selling theory as facts.
Have a good day :)

You were doing so well, then this:
"My main concern is, are the hurting other people? If the answer is NO then they barely show up on my radar with all the other problems in society"
Homosexuality isn't a problem.
You have to look at that comment in context. Right before it I said

"But how someone is born or who they are doesn't interest me in general that much anyway."

I said "in general" and added in addition to how someone is born "or who they are" because I am sure people hold a lot of views I would find problematic and engage in sex acts I would find disturbing. But I have no interest in being the thought-police or the sex-police. And people do have certain rights as well. And as long as someone isn't violating the rights of others, the law, or hurting anyone, then whatever they do, for the most part, is between them and God.

This is a society whose actual policing agencies only have the resources and manpower to follow up on less than 1% of the tips they receive about children being molested, raped, sold or used for kiddie porn, etc. As a society, we need to have some common-sense perspective as to where our focus is.

Excuse me correction I copy verses of scripture from the Bible.Hand type not cut and paste.No links either.
You have no idea what I do privately,nor do you know of very many of my personal opinions,nor are you aware of the many other sources I may choose to research.Yes I happen to think it is a personal journey.Some call it spaming,some call it la la land,some just call it sharing.Some things are shared like written scripture and some things are kept private.
Hello lil whispers

You make no claims of understanding the bible?...yet you post scripture incoherently?
