Bible God is a viciously evil POS.
Why did God create diseases ?

You obviously believe that morality is objective , rather than subjective ..ie...that it comes from God .

"No man ever believes that the Bible means what it says; he is always convinced that it says what he means." ~George Bernard Shaw
Hell?
Any person capable of the most basic critical thinking should be able to see very easily that such an idea of a physical paradise where there is no suffering is a completely illogical concept.
I would like to know how it is physically possible for a world with no suffering to exist. And I would specifically like to know whether carnivores would continue to eat herbivores, and how both could exist in a world with no suffering.
I am not interested in talking about metaphysics or fantasy-physics or any bald assertions about God.
I am only interested in the logical consistency of these ill logical claims about paradise.
I wonder whether 'the faithful ' have thought critically about the paradise they claim exists, or whether all of their argumentation about physics and metaphysics leads to nowhere but a concept of paradise which is fundamentally illogical and impossible to begin with.
..Christian Heaven has never been fully revealed ...but, most of us don't believe there will be animals in Heaven ..

Think back to your greatest memories and most joyous occasions ...why , can't moments like that, last forever ..?

There is no escape from deadly diseases.

The "easily avoided" cop out is just BS.
Ask the children dying of cancer at St. Jude's. Bible God hates those children.

Bible God is evil.

...ah , just using human observation and intellect "deism" is quite rational ..

but , for those of us who believe in Christ , this is proof ( to us ) that God is truly interested and deeply concerned with our lives ...

Keep telling yourself that, BenAssFucked.

The only people that believe you are the crazy Topix Atheists! The same ones that think DNA didn't exist until it was discovered, people collect asteroids and Christianity is responsible for every bad thing that happened in the history of mankind.

You can have their lot.

You know, we know. You've created your own deity that fits your own personal ideals.

That's insane. You're insane.

Nope.

You're welcome to believe whatever claptrap you want to believe.

Keep it out of our public education system, out of our politics, out of our science and out of our laws.

How many people have been burned at the Christian stake because their CORRECT science went against biblical dogma?

How much farther would we be advanced if other great thinkers hadn't been afraid-rightfully so-of meeting the same fate?

Uh-huh....

So we can believe whatever we want to believe so long as we follow your instructions about where we can't impose our beliefs.

",avoid really the cheap prostitutes .."

So, where do you go for your prostitutes, oh moral christian?
