@ HS sophomore:
"I think having an argument with an atheist is pointless."
/// Then why are you here?///
"They are going to believe what they want to believe."
/// As do you, don't you think that same "right to believe what you want" that you enjoy shouldn't not be extended to them?///
"I am a Christ follower and what I don't understand is how "God is evil" when Christians and churches around the world are doing things for the better good."
/// First off, to an atheist, your "god" is not evil. Your "god" (or anyone's "god") does not exist therefore cannot be good or evil.
But for the sake of arguing, let's pretend that "god" exists so that you can have a few examples of why some call "god" evil. For reference are we talking about the same "god" that murdered untold humans, animals etc. with a flood all because they did not do what he wanted them to? The same "god" who promises an eternity of torture in "hell" if you do not believe and worship only him? The same "god" who is all-powerful, all-knowing and yet allows children to die for nothing that they had control over or were to blame? Do you mean that "god"? I think you can see my point and this only scratches the surface of why some consider your "god" evil.///
"Also, it is the world and satan that causes terrible things in it. Although God allows terrible things to happen, I'm pretty sure he can do whatever he wants because he is god."
/// Really? I am all ears waiting for your explanation as to why a "loving god" would allow such things to happen?///
"Also If an atheist says, "I don't believe in god; therefore he isn't real" then I can say "I don't believe in atheists, therefore atheism isn't real"."
/// You can say it all you want but it is an atheist typing this to you.///
"What's so hard for me to understand though about atheists is how they don't believe the world was created for any reason."
/// Let me state this - Do you think the world with all of it's inhabitants, was created for the sole purpose of having a habitable planet for humans to live on just so they can die and go to "heaven"? Really??? This sounds like what you are implying, please correct me if I am wrong.///
"Scientific evidence & the bible all makes sense(which some atheists probably have never read any or looked at) and line up to evidence of Jesus Christ, whereas there is no 100% proof there isn't a God."
/// Statistically (and please feel free to look it up for yourself) most atheists are well versed in the buybull and religion, significantly more than their counterparts who claim to be christian. As for evidence of jeebus, while you are looking up the stats for atheists, also look up the following:
Horus of Egypt - 3000 BC
Attis of Greece - 1200 BC
Krishna of India - 900 BC
Dionysus of Greece - 500 BC
Mithra of Persia - 1200 BC
All of the above have strikingly similar births, living experiences and death as jeebus....coincedence??? I think not.///
"Lastly I don't understand why some atheists are so close minded and aren't even willing to look at the other Side of things."
/// Most have looked well at both sides of the coin, myself included. Why do you think I am atheist? Do you think I have rejected "god" just because I want ot be an evil person and have no responsibility for my actions? Silly.///
"Plus, why would some atheists come to a Christian site and criticize Christian beliefs?"
/// Why are you here at a thread called "why do atheists have to be so stupid" if not to give your two cents on why "atheists are stupid"? You are criticizing others for what you are doing here.///
"As for me, I believe in God and all you can do is pray for no believers."
/// Why would you pray for something that someone else does not want? Pray all you want but in the end all it will do is make you feel good...nothing else.///
"They'll receive their punishment after earthly death, just wait."
/// Ahhh...there's that christian love.///
