RE: 2 questions to ask a theist.
Hmm... two question's?

1. Whats the time?
2. Do you like the weather today?

I try to keep the questions as simple as possible, so that the theist can respond without the remote desktop connection set up.
That makes it too complicated, the results are not very useful.

If atheism is a religion, then not playing football is an Olympic discipline.

RE: 2 questions to ask a theist.
1. Why is faith at all necessary to God and, so much so, that some religions claim you will burn in hell no matter what else you do if you do not have faith?

2. Why did a perfect God create a very imperfect earth full of millions of living things all of which he loves dearly, but which he designed to literally feed off of each other.

I am insulted by the idea of Vanilla coke!
I will burn your internet-present's and chope off your broadband cable connection.
There is no coke except cherry coke!

RE: 2 questions to ask a theist.
The answers are quite simple.

1. No
2. Because of the ample evidence AGAINST Santa's existence.

If you would like we can go through such evidence, though I'm sure you know most of it as well - which is also why you don't believe.

If you are trying to make a comparison about God, than you might want to be prepared to answer similarly.

That is:
1. do you beleive in God.
2. why not?

I would assume for number two you be wanting and able to provide a list of ample evidence AGAINST God.

if you feel you can do so, I would love to discuss it further and see what evidence you have against God - similar to the evidence we both have against Santa.

RE: 2 questions to ask a theist.
1. Do you know that you're delusional?
2. Well, do you?

1. No.
2. Because there is not one shred of evidence supporting his existence. Much like with Santa Claus.

What evidence do you have to disprove the existence of Santa?

"1. Why is faith at all necessary to God and, so much so, that some religions claim you will burn in hell no matter what else you do if you do not have faith?

2. Why did a perfect God create a very imperfect earth full of millions of living things all of which he loves dearly, but which he designed to literally feed off of each other."


1. For one, it's a choice to be with God or without God. Of course to be with God one would have to believe in Him first (wouldn't that follow?). Second, if you don't want to be with God, do you believe he shoudl FORCE you to be with him? that wouldn't be very loving, plus it would negate our free will.

2. He didn't. Sin entered the world. It was perfect before then. Sin entered, we fell and continue to do so day in, day out. As to the design of the earth one could say: well I bet you seem to accept it from an evolution standpoint without moral objection, why would or should it be any different for God? Of course there is an argument that the world was not designed as such and that sin corrupted it.

1. No, he should not force me, he should convince me.
If he is only capable to offer heaven or hell, i take door number three and leave the poor guy alone.
2. Who created the sin?
