First of all, the bible. It was a book that they found on some hill. For all we know that could have been some elaborate fiction writers next novel. As well, the bible you all worship is not the true bible! If you spent as much time studying history as you did god, you would know there are at least thousands of versions of the bible with completely different translations.
Bren2010 wrote:Secondly, the image of god. People pray to god for health, strength, and wants. That must be the largest placebo effect in the entire history of the world. If you want health, you will fight your ailment, If you want strength, you will exercise, and if you want something, you will work for it. No one can effectively show the god's existance.
Bren2010 wrote:Thirdly, the loophole. If god created us, who created god? Who created god's god? Is there a never ending chain of god's god's? Why didn't any of these create us instead of the last in line?
Bren2010 wrote:Lastly, the hypocrisy. Let me summarize your choices, god loves you all, but unless you do everything he tells you, he's going to send you to hell? I can tell he really loves you. . .

If you pray for God's help with health, you must do your part by striving for health, if you pray for God's help with strength, you must exercise. If you do nothing, save ask, you cannot expect God to bless you. After all, "faith without works is dead."
Goatboy wrote:How did your church determine that the King James version is the most accurate? Unless you have seen the original and compared the two, you cannot come to this conclusion except by guessing. And even if you had the original, why not just use it? Sure, it was written in another language, but you could always make your own translation.
Goatboy wrote:So basically the difference between a believer in God and a non-believer is that a believer thinks he became healthy through proper nutrition AND prayer, but a non-believer thinks it's just through proper nutrition. From an outside observer, it would look like proper nutrition was the cause in both situations.

eljonto wrote:Wow... I so totally couldn't give a crap about religion... All it does is incite pointless arguments between believers, non-believers and different religions about all the various hypocrisies, contradictions and bullshit they all propagate.
Sorry if that offends anyone (most likely will), but hey- freedom of speech.
