A single action is worth more than the words it takes to describe it.

He might even have some more choice words for you. After all, you not only have to believe in God, you have to believe he is the Son of God to escape hell.

Since, unarguably, Jesus Christ is the most important human to have ever lived, his opinion carries a lot of weight.

What a kind, loving forgiving 'god' you follow. Love me or suffer. Sounds more like an abusive partner than a symbol of all that is good.

Just how many gods are actually 'good' or kind, Scot?

Consider








Seems totally legitimate.

That sounds like a god LJ would make up. Are you sure you're not just stealing one of her gods?

The magical teddy bear of love and cuddles god doesn't belong to anyone. But it loves you and sends cuddles your way.

Oh, Phaedrus, I'd totally forgotten that Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal was a thing. I'm far behind on XKCD, too. I'm horrible at being a proper atheist geek.

Thanks for the post. It was funny and inspiring.

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.

Annoying at best, torture at worst - but they don't get that. They want you in heaven.


It is because they know that if heaven exists, it just won't be any good without you. Therefore it is not heaven. They are trying to make sense of beliefs that don't make sense that were forced on them a long time ago.

Aww thanks alot, your probably right. My family always said I was a miracle because I was supposed to be in a wheel chair forever. But I eventually started walking on crutches and had a kid with my wife and all that. All they can say is thank god and they hate when I say it wasnt god, it was my will power and the medical proffesionals.
