What has God ever done that is immoral? What standard do you use to determine whether an act is moral or immoral?

The actual effects of the act on sentient creatures. It may not be perfect, or always clearly defined, but it beats the crap out of "might makes right" which is all that christians ever offer. A standard of "god is good by definition" is not a standard at all, it is just mindless capitulation to authority.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

If it's a tribal thing, and to some extent it is, people have to want to be in your tribe. Yes, they have to like the cherries that you picked in constructing your "superior" Jesus, but they also have to be willing to stick around as you bake the pie.

It's not Satan, it's you.

So maybe try to find a more appealing person to deliver your thoughts?

I find it quite strange that Christian, Muslims and Jews can ignore the immoral ways that their God is shown to have in the Bible, Qur’an and Talmud.

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

Exactly. You're both full of crap.

Not to worry. He doesn't know what that actually means either.

The fear of death is so pervasive that if there's a promise of eternal life people will ignore anything that might block the way, even an immoral god.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Right, but for me at least, my fear of death is entirely about the process of dying, and everyone has to go through that whether or not there's anything on the other side. It's not the "after" part that scares me. If I knew for a fact that I had an immortal soul, it wouldn't lessen my fear of dying at all.

@Cause they were indoctrinated. Nothing mysterious in it.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.
