It's not a bad idea, in fact I believe in it's truth, apart from the loving God part Smile

But *still*.

God is infinitely merciful yet he can watch a child starve... hmmm... he is infinitely powerful yet he can watch a person in pain die a slow and pointless death... and then welcome them into heaven presumably. Why the slow agony first? Infinitely powerful God, always watching... Not even nudging one of his chosen servants on Earth to go help out. He can cause a thunderstorm, he can make an earthquake, but he won't stretch forth his mighty hand to alleviate a little suffering...

Pfft. Even if he did exist, I'd never follow.

Is he even still here? Ya know what I remember? Being a kid, seeing those ads for "starving kids in Africa;" and you know what I get to remember?

They were smiling.

Ya know what else I remember? The coupla weeks I was living in the bushes, eating out of dumpsters; when the entire purpose of the universe was for me to draw Gwyneth Paltrow's likeness on my clothes.

One must be "wealthy" to consider "starving children." Otherwise, one is looking for something to eat....

Well then, that just proves your lack of faith.

I think he left. That or he's doing something in his real life like a jerk. Either way I can only hope he was using troll like behavior in an attempt to drive me mad. Otherwise I might Actually go mad knowing that he's got a job and stuff like that even though he couldn't figure out the damn Xbox story. Idiocracy is a movie that I like to think of as a documentary of the future.

Can you make a living playing Yu-Gi-Oh? That seems like his best bet.

RE: Hi, I'm a Christian
Unfortunately you are taking a very fundamentalist approach to The Bible. Rather than reading material from Creationists that rarely have any legitimate degree in a field of science, or even in hebrew(or greek.) I recommend reading articles for Biblical Archaeology, Bible scholarship, and from real Christian scientists. Don't let fundamentalists fool you. There is no contradiction between the existence of God, evolution, or an old universe. In fact, the early church did not accept literal six 24 hour day creation. The ones that did were in the minority, and this was before science started leaning more towards an old earth. If you want some sources to read through feel free to shoot me a pm.

Yes, that is what I've been trying to explain to Creationists many, many times, but they just keep going back in the infinite loop, with you as one exception. It's really stupid to read the Bible without thinking and just accept everything as literally as possible.
