Not really. Most people are "altruistic" so THEY can look good. Their "altruism" really isn't for the reciever, it's only to assuage the GIVER's own guilty consience.
People can APPEAR "altruistic" but that's all it is - an APPEARANCE. A mask. A fake.
Most people are PHONIES.

God uses the principle of causation as a tool for creation; but it does not apply to Him because He was not created. He transcends principle of cause and effect.
That's called special pleading. Everything else is subject to laws that you need to have apply to justify your god's, including the universe itself, except your god, who you also need to have excused from these laws. If those rules are valid, then let it be the singularity or the multiverse that needs no cause.

From Pat Condell:

"Faith-peddlers like to put themselves beyond question by claiming that their faith transcends reason, the very thing that calls it to account. How convenient. Yes, faith transcends reason the way a criminal transcends the law.

"The word "transcendent" is very popular with religious hustlers because they never have to explain precisely what they mean by it, other than some vague superior state of understanding more profound than mere reason, which is crude and simplistic next to the subtleties and profundities of belief without evidence.

"If you hear a senior clergyman (and you will) using the word “transcendent" to explain the nonsense he claims to believe, then you know two things: one: he doesn't know what he's talking about, and two: he doesn't want you to know what he's talking about either."

I think it is our natural instinct to want to see some evil person die, but we humans attempt to rise above these basic instincts, partly because we can understand how we would feel if someone wanted to see us die, and we also would not enjoy the process of being killed, so why wish that on another. The fact that they have killed someone, doesn't justify our sinking to their level of morality and doing the same to them, IMO.
I even felt sorry for Saddam Hussein, whose actual hanging I saw several times on video, or Gaddafis murder, or Bin Laden's murder (his was an ordered murder as they had him overwhelmed - they chose, for some reason, to kill him rather than bring him back alive. With the expertise of the people who got to him, they could have got him without killing anyone. But they didn't do that.
These people were monsters, but once they are dead, they are just another dead body. Better to capture them and make them live for a few years having to think about what they have done to get them in that situation, then to take the easy way out of dying quickly.
No, I don't want to see people die, It made me cry too when i saw gaddafi being beaten. But evil people need to be stopped or they will hurt other people, i think they should be arrested and put in prison to stop them doing evil things, but in some countries there is no law, no justice, nobody can put them in prison. Sometimes, to stop people doing evil things, death is the only way. If we could have killed Hitler sooner, 6 million jews would have been saved.

I don't think evil people really think about anything but doing evil, I just think they should be captured for other people's benefit.

Just think man you can't win this. It is not possible to be both. You can't be in 2 places at 1 time.
God can't be omniscient and omnipotent. It defies logic and the entire concept of the words and ideas. You need new words, ideas, or gods.
In God's Universe he makes the rules. Not the other way around. God is not restricted to our understanding of the rules of the universe.

Gen 1:2, God moved upon the face of the water......
C'mon, dude. Does water have a face?! It's metaphorical.
The bible doesn't define what a day is to God, just that it's an indeterminate amount if time.
Goodbye, troll.
Wait a minute.
You say "it's metaphorical" ...but vehemently insist they must "follow the rules or go to hell"?
Is the bible LITERAL, or METAPHORAL?
Metophorical "rules" are unfollowable.

"Tace of" the water means surface. Thus, rises the belief that "Jesus can walk on water" for those who believe Jesus is "god". Some religious people believe in this, RR, and they will call you a blasphemer if you don't toe their "God walking on water" line. It's one of "Jesus' Miracles".

What you seem to be asking is that God impress Himself upon your or their consciousnesses.
Don't you Christians tell us that your god wants to be known and loved very much? If so, it was extremely shrewd of such a god to go into hiding, give man the faculty of reason and doubt, fail to answer prayer whenever it is studied scientifically, write a bad bible, and stock the world with stratified fossils and nested hierarchies of molecular and anatomical structures.
God Himself wrote:
But if He did that, then you would not have reached knowledge by force and not by reason; and that is little different from oppression.
Your thinking is inscrutable to me. This reasoning is so tortured as to be unintelligible. Oppression is hiding from me, and then sending me to hell for being fooled.
God Himself wrote:
One can lead a horse to water; but he cannot force that horse to drink. He can use things to communicate to you, but if you don't decide to listen, you don't have to hear Him Speak.
A second ago, I was told that being shown your god would be oppressive. Apparently, that was expedient then.

Now, you depict the god as being as obvious as water to a horse dragged to a watering hole so that you can blame me for not accepting the claim that it exists. That's expedient now.

Typical for apologetics.

America is NOT a "Christian nation". The Founding Fathers believed in a "god" NOT "the Christian god".
If there was a "god" why would he just be Christian? That sounds more like an idol than a real "god".
If we were a "Christian Nation" we would NOT be lighting the National Menorah for Hanukkah (a Jewish holiday).
And don't call it a "Judeo-Christian" nation either, there are too many Christians here that hate Jews.
