Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Now we can stop right here if you claim that God is incapable on seeing and controlling the future.

Eve has no concept of right and wrong, only that she was told NOT to eat from the tree of knowledge. Now the question is, did God KNOW that she would violate his request? Could he in fact look into the future and see her eating the forbidden fruit? If so, what is the rationale for not only punishing Adam and Eve, but ALL of mankind?
Since you enjoy analogous situations. I know my 5 year old loves cookies. I tell her NOT to eat a cookie, I then leave a cookie in her room, on the bed, knowing full well that as a 5 year old with no one around, she will eat the cookie. I hid around the corner and wait for her to eat the cookie, then spring into her room and punish her for eating the cookie. Is this something you could ever do? Do you see anything wrong with a parent doing such a thing?
Adam was told not to eat from the tree before Eve was created. Then Adam (the serpent) comes to Eve and says, "...did God say" because Eve didn't know, she heard it from Adam. The serpent was a part of Adams anatomy and they were naked, so it was out there. Adam and Eve were given two commandments both concerning sex, one positive and one negative. They were 1) Be fruitful and multiply and 2) No sodomy. The subsequent curse on the serpent was the same as the curse on Adam. Eve was the tree of Life and Adam was the tree of knowledge. The name Eve means life. Carnal relations is called "knowledge".

I could only write about things that mean something to me, things based in reality, so I wouldn't even know where to start. I suppose I could write about the idea of God, but since I'm almost certain no such entity exists, it seems pointless. If I had to write such a piece based on the idea of God it wouldn't be in a "happy" key like G major, rather a dark and sinister key like G minor Phrygian, or the strangest mode of all Locrian.

Piss off Godbot, this conversation is between intelligent rational people, not brainwashed delusional mental cases like yourself. Now go read how your demon God promotes the rape of young virgins.

Okay we'll address this point first. This is an assumption that because God can control what will happen, that He will control what will happen according to our standards. Such a God would not be worthy of worship if He catered to our every whim.

Agreed.
blacklagoon wrote:

Here, I disagree. She knew the difference between right and wrong. Telling somebody what they can and cannot do, is telling them the difference between right and wrong. What Eve didn't have prior to eating the fruit was guilt. There was no need for guilt when in compliance with God's directives.

God knew. But God had to allow free will. God decides when to control or influence others and when not to. Now if Adam and Eve had obeyed God, they would enjoy immortality with their creator. By choosing to go against God's directive, they were found unworthy of immortality, and this rebellious trait was passed from generation to generation. Now notice that God didn't kill them outright. He could have, but didn't. But He did remove their immortality when He banished them from His presence and the Garden of Eden.

If God can remove immortality, then He can restore it as well. This is where He makes a promise to Adam and Eve that He will restore eternal life to their descendants.

I understand what you're saying. But you're viewing this as cosmic entrapment. Yes we love our kids and yes we want them to behave morally without toying with them. We allow them a certain amount of freedom. We allow them to make choices within boundaries of our limitations. Why do we stop kids from rushing into the street? Because we love them and don't want them hurt or killed of course. And there is the difference. We have no power over death. God does. And if that's true, then it's worth it to trust His judgement.

Now you may not agree with my answers, but that's okay. I have told you what I believe as I understand it. I have enjoyed this discourse with you, and I look forward to more if you're willing. Good night my friend.

Damn, loony, you would be missing your chance if you don't compose something. Make it your requiem played at your funeral. Give it a neat name, like "How I Told God to Fu*k Off, I Didn't Need Or Want Him". You would be an inspiration to millions of atheists. They would buy millions of copies. You could capture the youth market and use that song to point them the right way, yours.

You could be a real hero to the cause. Come on, that will be your last chance to jab a finger into the eye of a mythical evil entity, right?

You can't pass that up. You are the best there is.

If you were true to your faith of atheism, Christians and Christianity would not be bothering you in any way and you have no NEED to be on this forum arguing about God. You would never, ever, ever have religion on your mind and have the NEED to blaspheme and scoff at God and Christians.
But because you DO HAVE THAT NEED, it proves you are weak in your faith in atheism and are failing miserably.
I love to watch an atheist having his meltdown.
Atheism does not require faith. This is an atheist forum and the only reason there are arguments on this forum is because people like you come on here and start arguments about your religion and the fact that unbelievers should believe. If you would stay off of this forum that has nothing to do with your religion then everyone would be just fine. No one has a need to discuss your religion with you, it is your need to argue that keeps bringing you back.

Has the supreme creator, the creator of all things confided in you? You seem to know the mind of this creator, how is that? Or could it be that you are just pulling shit out of your ass as usual.
Seems to me an all powerful creator would have plenty of time to listen to his creations. Oh, yeah, I forgot, this particular creator is a bit on the whimpy side, needing a whole day to rest after creating the earth.
lol your talking to these creationist on a level that makes sense to you and me and most rationaly thinking people these creationist on here are never going to come out and admit that they have no evidence tangible or not that god exsist they respond your comments blacklagoon as it there creationist nonsense is on par with our sense and logic but it does make for some amusing post i love seeing what they say next
