There is a part of the human brain that detects threats and responds in a variety of ways, most of them abnormal. When one considers that these threats are from a non-exitent source then the mental dysfunction becomes even more pronounced.
Even those who believe in a benevolent God suffer from a serious mental illness, delusional disorder, the inability to distinguish between what is real and what is only imagined. Either way, religious beliefs are dysfunctional.
Um, I guess you didn't notice the negative association between belief in a "benevolent God" and anxiety, paranoia, compulsion and/or obsession, did you? Those who don't qualify as believing in either a "benevolent" nor "angry" God, which would include yourself, we still get our fair share of the crazies. It's among believers of "benevolent God" where they are in shorter supply than they should be.

One "study" convinces you? Read the bible; it may open your heart that our creator YHWH Elohim is a loving G-d!

The people they sight in the "study" most likely fell away from the Torah (1st 5 books). Disobedience causes G-d to turn away, because he gives us free will, which proves he loves us. G-d is Holy. Faith comes by hearing the Word of G-d. He shows us how to live happily, healthily, spiritually, but warns us, just as our parents do, and when we choose to disobey, this and only this opens the heart to receive the messages of this "world", which is (till Yahweh returns at least)controlled by Satan and his minions (fallen angels) and demon spirits.

I hope you are willing to take off the filter you have to be open to the hope of a new life, for you shall be held accountable before the BEMA seat when you die. Repent and turn away from sin, unless you are indeed one of Satan's minions stirring up strife; in-which case - burn in hell.

Read the bible? Open my heart to a "loving" God? You mean the loving God who murders little babies and destroys unborn fetuses? The same loving God who condones slavery and rape?

And I should also read an immoral book were slavery and slaughter of innocent people are considered good deeds? The same book that endorses the rape of young girls? The same book that has a law that requires a rape victim to "Marry" her rapist? The same book were the murder of innocent little babies can be found and also considered a good deed?

There is no such thing as "free will" its an illusion. Your God is supposed to be all knowing, all powerful, there is nothing he doesn't know including what will happen in the future....so.....Your God knows exactly what pathway you are going to take in life. You think that when you approach a moment in your life were you can take a right or a left, that when you chose to take the right you have exercised free will, but your demon God KNEW you would take the right instead of the left, you had NO CHOICE, There is nothing you can do but take the path preordained for you by your God, hence...NO FREE WILL!!!!

You, like many Theists, have once again demonstrated to all the divisiveness of religion. We can NEVER be friends. You have threaten someone you don't even know with eternal torture simply be cause they do not believe as you. How is it even possible for people to unite for the good of our species with this type of mindset. You people draw an insurmountable line in the sand, a line that can never be crossed. Each religion drawing its own line in the sand, thereby compartmentalizing each little faction. Thank you for showing us all the poison that religion is to our species.

So, you don't "believe" in God, but if you did, you would believe Him to be a real s.o.b., you did read the study, right? You may not believe in God, but you still believe in one seriously angry God. The odds are no longer in your favor.

I don't believe in any kind of God angry or not. I pride myself on holding as many TRUE beliefs as possible and rejecting beliefs that are untrue. Unlike Theists, I can provide evidence for everything I believe in. Believing in something that is without evidence is a mental deficiency. Theists believe without any good reason other than it either eliminates their fear of death or it makes them feel good, both very poor excuses for believing something only imagined!!!

<quoted text>You have no knowledge of the Bible if this is what you believe. I am not a Christan but I have read the book and the teachings and beliefs it exposes are nowhere in line with your thoughts on it. Religion is no more divisive than politics,custom,or culture. You are obviously a misanthropic globalist who believes just as much as a religious zelot that your saving grace is the only truth.
I in fact DO have knowledge of what is contained in the bible. Are you refuting what I said is contained in the bible? The God of the bible murders little babies and destroys unborn fetuses, are you saying this is not the case?

Politics, customs, and culture involve RELIGION. Religion has always been divisive, and will continue to be so until its eradicated like any other malevolent disease.

Refutes these biblical fact if you dare>

1.) The bible condones slavery.

2.) The bible contains a law that says a rape victim MUST marry her rapist.

3.) The bible condones and in fact encourages rape and mass slaughter

4.) The God of the bible involved himself with blood sacrifice.

5.) The God of the bible committed genocide.

Lets start wit these,,,good luck!!!!

Reading comprehension just isn't your bag, is it? I realize that you steadfastly deny the existence of "God" dear, but that hasn't stopped you from believing in one who you see as having serious anger management issues. You may, in your mind, be discussing "God" like you would "Huckleberry Finn", as a "fiction", but you are still expressing your beliefs regarding him and he's one angry character, according to you.

Did this help?

1) The Bible condones slavery.

Several forms of it in fact, but you really don't need a Bible to be able to rationalize the practice, now do you?

2) The bible contains a law that says a rape victim MUST marry her rapist.

Only in certain circumstances in a group which valued female chastity prior to marriage and marriage as a property settlement up front. It was God's markdown on damaged goods to the one who did the damage.

3.) The bible condones and in fact encourages rape and mass slaughter.

Folk were encouraging such things long before there ever was a Bible to justify it and history tells us it can be whipped up fairly easy without one.

4.) The God of the bible involved himself with blood sacrifice.

There are few Gods who haven't.

5.) The God of the bible committed genocide.

So have folk who have never ever read one.

Do you want to tell me again how you don't believe in God?

I believe religion to be a danger to our society. In pointing out this demon God, I'm making an attempt to talk to the Theist on their own terms. I have worded my post in a way that you should be aware of my disbelief. I often say "THE GOD YOU BELIEVE IN>>>>>>> does this or that. How else can I connect with a Theist on their own terms?

So just for you.....now please PLAY ATTENTION.....The God YOU believe in, the God YOU say is all loving.....The God YIU worship....murders little babies and destroys unborn fetuses........This is WHAT your holy book states. I KNOW no such being exits, but those of you who do, need to justify these and other acts of evil and immorality ATTRIBUTES to YOUR God. I do hope this clears up your obvious confusion.

Hon, I get you don't believe in God, have a complete disdain for religious faith, etc, etc, you've said so enough times. What you aren't getting, no matter how many times I repeat it, is that your rejection of God, religion, etc hasn't stopped you from believing in God and in a God who is angrier at the world than you come across.

I really don't mind breaking this to you, but you really haven't got anything resembling a clue as to what I actually believe. I'm not Christian, or of any other "faith", I just happen to believe in any version of God or Gods that folk drag around with them, they have them for a reason. You only believe in an angry God, I believe in all of them. That single-minded belief in that angry God of yours means that the odds of the association found by the study are now against you. Because, when you get right down to it, even though you are an atheist, your beliefs in God are downright religious. Mine, nowhere close.

Well at lest I can thank you for admitting how immoral the bible really is. The "GOOD" book it is called, I'll never understand why, maybe since you are so vehemently defending this immoral book, you could explain that to me.

Do you really think an all loving, all caring God should be so terribly immoral and cruel? Really? Based on what is contained in the bible, and the bible IS the word of God, I am not only a better person than God, but much more moral.

Thanks again for not denying how cruel and immoral the bible really is!!!

The will that came before substance and dimension. The Bible nowhere condones rape. The Old Testament does contain stories of slaves. Here is the fact of the stories: According to the Bible God creates man out of mud (a primitive explanation that we are created from the same matter that makes up everything else) into them he gives free will. As time goes on man's selfishness causes him to take slaves. In time as Gods chosen people hold these slaves he becomes unsettled to fact of this. He commands his followers release their slaves. It does not condone it, it forbids it. Same goes for all forms of sacrifice. The only book or document that calls for these types of horrors you list is the U.N. manifesto you militant style atheist tend to love so much. You honestly believe absence of religion would change anything? Your delusional. The problems of the modern world stem from the fact that human beings and all animals for that matter are by nature in competition with each other and draw divisiveness based on whatever differences they have. This FACT coupled with the globalist notion of a One World Government that seeks to join the whole world under a totalitarian one size fits all and all must deny their culture and integrate into the new forced belief system of the powerful elite is the problem. If we all just sat in our respective corners and worried about ourselves and our own and not what is happening with others we would all be better off.
First off, you need to crack your dictionary and LEARN the definition of the words you are using. I just have to laugh when you folk desperately attempt to categorize Atheists along with you Theists by calling Atheism a religion. So lets start your lesson today with definitions, just so you won't look completely stupid in the future.

RELIGION.........."The BELIEF and WORSHIP of a superhuman controlling power, a personal God."....Now, begin by explaining to me exactly what superhuman controlling power we Atheists worship....ready...set......GO !!!!

RELIGION........"A particular system of FAITH and WORSHIP." FAITH......... Strong belief in GOD or the doctrines of a religion based an spiritual apprehension rather than PROOF."

Faith is the permission Theists give one another to believe in something without evidence.

Now don't you feel complexity foolish?

It's this simple....If you believe in God, you are a THEIST.......If you LACK a belief in God you are an ATHEIST. I hope that clears up you confusion. Class dismissed!!!

"Science still has not and never will be able to explain the primordial force that predated the singularity that created the universe. It is in this that people see God."

More dictionary work for ya.....PRIMORDIAL....."Ex isting AT of FRM the beginning of time." So there were NO primordial force that predated the singularity. Your mistake is that of most Theists, they see something unexplained and immediately INSERT their God. It's a very old and tired argument called the God of the gaps. There is no present explanation so I'll insert God and the answer. Do you have any idea how many times over the course of human history this argument has been used and ultimately failed? When there was no explanation for thunder and lightning,,,,God was inserted...until, SCIENCE found the real answer. When there was no explanation for diocese and plague....An angry God was inserted....until, SCIENCE found out about germ theory. On and On it goes, overtime God is inserted, SCIENCE eventually comes up with the REAL answer. This will continue, as it does so, and SCIENCE finds the real answer....God becomes an ever receding pocket of scientific ignorance.

i'm not surprised, that the majority, want to blame GOD,
for everything that man has done on this earth
with all the pollutants and chemicals in the food
did no one think, it won't affect the children
read up, on hydrogenated oil,
maybe, you'll see what is the real cause for cancer, diabetes, heart problems, mentally handicapped, mental illness,
how can a brain function, when it has been poisoned, with chemicals
can one think, rationalize, be calm, learn, to make sense
the government has lied to the public, and big companies has paid them off, to look the other way,
the hydrogenated oil, is slowly poisoning us,
all bakery goods, use it,
they use hydrogenated oil to stabilize the product, to extend shelf life
these companies are STILL using it,
it was to be banned !!!!!!
why are children born, bi-polar, adh, cancer, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis,
don't blame GOD,
BLAME MAN for the ills of this world
check it out for yourselves,
do some research, you may be able to save your own

It was good old Ben Franklin who discovered that lightning was electricity. You really don't know what lightning is? You still think it's caused by God? Do you sit in the back of your cave banging two bones together asking the thunder God to bring more game? Yeah, I thought so!!!
