. I mean, might God not be living on the other side of Jupiter? Ever been out there to check on it?



Cool
no, but I think this dude  has....

Damn!... now I wanna do some acid ...lol...


The idea of Jupiter was simply an example. Even if that dude in your link went out there and checked all of Jupiter, there are multitudes of places in the universe where God might exist, and where nobody has gone before.

I can understand why you might want to do some acid. You are finally coming to understand how non-atheistic you really are. Don't overdose.

They all are bat shit crazy.  

There is absolutely no logic in their world view.  Hell, heaven, judgement day, rapture, angels, spirits, flying horses, defying gravity, virgin conception etc.  Complete horse shit.  All of them.

don't forget about the talking snake... Wink Cheesy

You delude yourselves into thinking that you are atheists, when such is impossible, because you can't believe that God doesn't exist, when you know that He might exist somewhere that you haven't examined. So, if anything, you are more "Complete horse shit.  All of" you.

Just like how some Christians criticize Atheists for not believing in God, they do the same to us. I am Catholic myself, but I think it's God's choice on to choose a person's religion. Some Atheists just don't believe in religion, but don't criticize others for believing, but then get tired of the believers who try to change them so much. I've seen that happen to a friend of mine multiple times.

I do not hate all religions, in a religion has its own teachings, and every religion has different beliefs and rules so atheists themselves have rules that justify every mistake in the right, and there are some unfair facts and teachings in deciding a problem, for that we have seen and heard the degree of women in the lower levels in comparison with men's degree and why should be treated like that.

If you hated religion in general, you would hate atheism too, because atheism is a religion. You would even hate your own life, because the definition of religion, for you, includes the way you live... the combined motives behind the things you do... your religion. See the definition of religion at http://www.dictionary.com/browse/religion?s=t.

He created these religions, by listening to people's inner thoughts, and then giving them the religion that would help them turn to Him for salvation the most. That's why people choose and have various religions. It's what they need to find the true religion that provides salvation from death into eternal life.

That makes little to no sense badecker but nice try. A god would know exactly what would convince everyone and yet not everyone is convinced, he either failed or he doesn't exist.

That's what I said. He knows exactly what is the best religion to convince every person. You simply are forgetting the part about convincing, and are looking at forcing instead. God doesn't want forced robots in the people he created. He made a bunch of those forced robots in the plants and animals. He wants beings that have some free will. Yet He isn't going to give His glory to anyone else. You keep on ignoring the way it works. You will ultimately lose eternal life in glory if you don't change.

If he created these religions, either he is mentally retarded or is all together schizophrenic.

Guess, what?  People created religions. No maker of the universe would bother with Zeus, Mitra or Jesus myths.

God created the universe. He created the earth. The physics that God created can't even be dislodged by a hydrogen nuclear bomb blast. Your religion that you are expressing is the thing that is mentally retarded. Not God.

If I were God, I would create one religion or no religion, not 5000+ and give people reasons to kill each other.  I would create one solar system, not billions of solar systems.  Most of them devoid of life.

If I were God, I would create one universe and one Earth in the same instance, with all animals, plants and people in it.
I would not create this universe and then wait 9 billion years to create Earth, then wait another 4+ billion to create man (in my own image LOL).  I would not create multiple universes with different physical constants.  What is the purpose?  Trial and error, see which one works?

The way you say he did things seems retarded at best.  But then again, the 'Gods' (aka goat herders) that created religions were slight retards to begin with so we cannot expect them to come up with something that makes sense.

If he appears to me, he is not ''forcing'' me to believe in him, that doesn't take away my free will at all mate. He could easily just show himself to everyone and we would still have free will.

You are exceptionally blessed. Not only has God "appeared" to you, but He has allowed me to explain His appearance to you:
1. The machine nature of the universe - machines have makers;
2. Cause and effect + entropy + complexity;
3. The fact that you are able to set yourself up as god by making all kinds of claims that you know you don't have any validation for.

As Robert Heinlein wrote in Stranger in a Strange Land, "Thou art god." But God is also Himself, stating to us in the Bible through Jesus, "You are gods to whom the word of God comes."

If you won't accept the blessing of God's appearance to you after all the explanation I have given, your destruction will be far worse than someone else who hasn't had the explanation, and won't accept.

Yet He isn't going to give His glory to anyone else. You keep on ignoring the way it works. You will ultimately lose eternal life in glory if you don't change.

Cool

If he appears to me, he is not ''forcing'' me to believe in him, that doesn't take away my free will at all mate. He could easily just show himself to everyone and we would still have free will.

You are exceptionally blessed. Not only has God "appeared" to you, but He has allowed me to explain His appearance to you:
1. The machine nature of the universe - machines have makers;
2. Cause and effect + entropy + complexity;
3. The fact that you are able to set yourself up as god by making all kinds of claims that you know you don't have any validation for.

As Robert Heinlein wrote in Stranger in a Strange Land, "Thou art god." But God is also Himself, stating to us in the Bible through Jesus, "You are gods to whom the word of God comes."

If you won't accept the blessing of God's appearance to you after all the explanation I have given, your destruction will be far worse than someone else who hasn't had the explanation, and won't accept.

Cool

And if you don't come inline and follow Zeus, he will burn your house with lightning.

You better obey Zeus, or else.  

All other 5000+ Gods will punish you because you rejected them.  They will destroy you.  

Wait...
Shiva is on my call waiting, she probably wants me to tell you that she will rip you apart, take your heart out and feed it to the Mayans.

It is not that atheists do not like religion, it is that atheists do not like it when the religious tell them how to live their lives, or when theists imply that they are better people because of their beliefs: the idea, for example, that faith is a virtue of itself.

Nowadays, in the West, the theists who do these things are a minority - but still quite numerous. The argument about gay marriage, for example: theists saying that other people could not marry because of the theists rules. Wanting theologically inspired mottoes on civil institutions such as courts and money. Appealing to God in public ceremonies.

Just like how some Christians criticize Atheists for not believing in God, they do the same to us. I am Catholic myself, but I think it's God's choice on to choose a person's religion. Some Atheists just don't believe in religion, but don't criticize others for believing, but then get tired of the believers who try to change them so much. I've seen that happen to a friend of mine multiple times.


Why did God create contradicting religions (5000+ and counting)?

Why did God create Atheists?


He created these religions, by listening to people's inner thoughts, and then giving them the religion that would help them turn to Him for salvation the most. That's why people choose and have various religions. It's what they need to find the true religion that provides salvation from death into eternal life.

Cool

That makes little to no sense badecker but nice try. A god would know exactly what would convince everyone and yet not everyone is convinced, he either failed or he doesn't exist.

You in your godness are one of the weakest of the gods, because you don't even understand the God of the universe who is ONE, over all other gods.

Of course atheists like religion. If they didn't, they wouldn't be atheists. After all, atheism is a religion, by definition. Look it up in complete dictionaries and encyclopedias.

Some theists think it is extremely dangerous even foolhardy to remove God from public life.

A recent case in the UK highlights this well.

I think religion has one (original) use case: "To control how people think and behave".

But in today's Internet Age, religions have too much competition from political, all the *-isms, and anti-* movements.

The benefits of religious brainwashing (law abiding citizens) are overshadowed by all the negatives (regressive moral values,
outdated social structures and rejection of the scientific method as an efficient way to learn how the world works).
