I think you will find that in the majority of these African nations ravaged by war that the population are very devout believers in god.
For the most part the christian god or the Moslim god. Oh wait a moment, it’s the same god, the god of Abraham
You bring up a good point. Christianity has grown in Africa since the 1900‘s. Lumping in Christians in the same category as Muslims works for Atheist. In reality it’s like trying to mix oil and water.

Africa today has 54 countries. Most of the continent remains unstable due to terrorism by radical extremist particularly of the Muslim Faith. We have had our share of radical terrorism right here in the United States. But Africa is a hot bed of terrorism which seems to be growing because governments aren’t able to keep them in check.

Rest assure that Atheist are no safer in these countries than visiting Christian Missionaries. The only difference is they may use a dull knife cutting the head off an Atheist versus using a sharp one on a Christian.

But to the question Bob asked. God is not a micro-manager. He allows mankind to govern himself and that goes all the way from major governments to each of us individuals. So why does God allow this to happen and that to happen?

If you ever get the chance to work for a micro manager on your job you should at least one time. Micro managers are terribly inefficient and end up costing companies in the bottom line.

MEANINGFUL! Seriously? Nothing anyone post here is meaningful. You want me to post this essay I spend a few hours, in research to put together. On a topic, I really think you have no interest in, and you have clearly displayed that. In the end you wouldn't even have the reading comprehension to get what is being said, and if you did you'd be too bull headed to admit I was correct. I could not think of a bigger waste of time. I told you right from the start, I can't help you. On top of all this, I do believe you when you tell me you have no soul.
When anyone posts something that is evidence for a claim it IS meaningful. You are too funny in your refusal to post anything at all that could be considered evidence. First you say it would be a waste of your time, then it's I won't be able to comprehend this evidence, its one failure after another. You can't even define what this soul thing is. You have it but others don't. I'll ask you some very simple questions, and I'll bet you either refuse to answer them or, you are unable. I'll choose UNABLE.

1.) Define in simple terms exactly what constitutes a soul.

2.) Is this soul a physical part of our, or yours anyway, body?

3.) Are we all born with a soul?

4.) If not born with a soul, what is the procedure for acquiring one?

5.) Why do you have a soul and others do not?

6.) For those without a soul, in what way are they different?

7.) Is there a significant advantage to having a soul over not having one? What are those advantages?

8.) Once you have a soul can you ever lose it? If so how?

Now I'll sit back and wait for your twisting and turning every which way in order to avoid answering these very simple questions

Why would I support militant Atheist billboard campaigns?

There has been a resent kickback from religious groups responding to Atheist. Messages on Billboards in California and Electronic Boards in Times Square, saying,“To our Atheist Friends, Thank God you are wrong.”

Personally I think the Atheist Billboard messages in the past have been good for Christian Believers. It turns the dial up on the gas feed on the ole boiler. From low fire to high fire. Who else could get Christians all fired up more than militant Atheist?

And that’s what we’re seeing here in places like Times Square. If I was a director over Atheist marketing. I wouldn’t allow billboard signs or any newspaper incendiary adds. Because what does it do? It fires up the Christian base.

But militant Atheist think they are helping Atheism by placing billboards up. I think they (Atheist) are doing a good job motivating their opponents. And their opponents need motivation, ha, ha, ha………..

If your god is only doing the "big picture"?

Then there is absolutely zero reason for you to pray.

None at all-- as your god really doesn't give a shyt about little old insignificant you.

But.

You did claim that your god was ... what did you say? Oh yes, "good to you".

In short?

You think your god **micromanaged** your fate, personally.

Your inconsistency is showing.

To address a point you made earlier:

Not all christians are the same.

Interesting.

So your god isn't the same for each different brand of "christian"?

Right?

Why?

Is it some sort of "big picture" uncaring game he's playing at?

Or?

Is it that your god simply isn't real.

That is the **only** explanation for the fractured nature of all of christianity....

... that there is no actual god behind any of it.

You think she really has a lard ass? A shame if true. I would hope she had one socially redeeming value. I confess I have been a bit mesmerized watching her display it on here so much. I just thought her head was fat.

Lovey, the whole basis of the BBT is based upon physical phenomenon we understand. One is you don't get heat unless you have a load on an energy source. Friction is one method, which is something on the atomic level. It is even caused within the atomic level by charge displacement, which is caused by motion. The dense hot singularity? Heat is motion, though not what we call in a coherent manner. Basically it is a vibration caused by stress on atomic structure. The singularity got hot. Whatever it was got stressed out and blew a fuse. There is a circular logic to the theory.
You have the vaguest notion of what energy is. Just words you heard. Your "education" is just indoctrination by someone who stared up into the sky and told you what they think, not by your reasoning for yourself based upon what you DO know.
Define energy for us in your own words. What it is and how it came to be.
Nope you are again confused, what you are should be claiming is the BB caused energy to expand which generated heat

At the BB stage of the universe atoms did not exist so you atom analogy is irrelevant.

What gives you the impression that a singularity it hot? There is no evidence, nor given current technology can there any evidence either way. So you are guessing.

There may be a circular logic you your interpretation of the theory but not to cosmological theories.

And again you are guessing about my education because you are clueless of my education, This is a very bad habit you have, it may if course consolidate your davesworld dream but actually bares no resemblance to reality

You have asked this before and I have responded by stating that you are requesting the contents of a 3 year university course on topix. Such godbot simplistic (mis)understanding explains your confusion.

So define which energy? There are several sorts (14 that I know of) and sources (millions, billions, trillions, who knows), this appears to be where you fall down, its a concept that you are incapable of understanding.
