<quoted text>I have no problem with rational beliefs.
Then why are you atheist? Explain how life began absent intelligence?
Irrational beliefs are another story as in andet's claims that God answers most of her prayers but ignored the prayers of millions of Jews during the holocaust.
How do you know their prayers were ignored? Nazi's were defeated. All are now dead. If atheism is true then the fate of Hitler is no worse than his victims. Death and extinction. No justice.
Never answering the prayers of thousands of parents praying for their starving children,
What are you doing about the thousands of children starving? Atheists only use the starving children within the context of God. They do not really care about starvation in any real manner which would cause them to forfeit their careers or anything else to end hunger. It is nothing more than a mere excuse to validate their atheism but starving children and injustice does not invalidate God. It only means God holds us responsible to do something about the problem.
but answers her/his meaningless requests. We won't even begin to talk about God NEVER answering the prayers of amputee's. Irrational beliefs are a sign of mental instability and should not be left unattended.
Jesus addressed amputees in a sense when He said it is better to go through life lame them to have all limbs to be cast into hell. There is the parable of Lazarus and the rich man in Luke 16. Don't you know that you are blind and deaf to the things that really matter in life? Don't you know that you are cut off from God who is life and are therefore dead spiritually? All these things described is the result of sin which has a time to exist but will end. We are between two periods in which man is out of harmony with God. At creation man was in harmony and will be in harmony again. This is the in between. Your statement about irrational beliefs is straight out of the atheists handbook. They tried that before forcing anti psychotic medications on God believers in the Soviet Union.
