What carnage am I witnessing here?

Boys and girls, please be careful with your toys. When we buy you a new theist to play with, look after it or you won't get another one until you say sorry.

Blames every human born thereafter for it and curses them with the "mortal sin"? Creates the plague, cancer, tsunamis, hurricanes and what have you?

Based on the information we have about this imaginary character,the most fitting description for him is that he is an oppressive,cruel and heartless dictator.
For example based on Star Wars we can characterize Darth Vader as an evil villain.

Chas Wrote:What version of the Bible were you reading? Some comic book?

The God described in the Bible is a petty, selfish, tyrannical, genocidal, misogynistic horror.

Vosur Wrote:I'm interested in how you could possibly come to the conclusion of the god described in the Bible being a good one without being religiously deluded.

This hostile theme crap seems to be the tone of the average Atheist and, maybe that's the "cool" Atheist thing to do nowadays, but it really just overwhelms me.

This is the dialogue I am afraid of in my next skype meeting No

What is hostile about what I wrote?

I did read the bible and the first testament is more horrid than Grimm's fairytales. Blood flows all the time, on the orders of god. God tells people to go and kill other people's first borns and all of that.

Have you not read that? If you did read the bible, how can you come away with the conviction that god is good? How can someone good order all this slaughter?

RE: The Theology of God is an Asshole
God isn't the asshole, but the idea of God, something all perfect, all good, all powerful, is something I hate.

Because that idea can cause people to do shit that is totally unacceptable, and evil.

Just excuse my behavior last night. If you catch me at the wrong time, I tend to get all emotional and edgy.
It's almost like I've got swinging personalities lol
One day I'm a focused individual, the next I'm breaking expensive printers ( Ask my wife Drinking Beverage )

You'll probably see me swing this way and that more as I post more on this forum.
If you want to play along with me, that's fine, I'll be fine the next day Thumbsup

OFF TOPIC:: I'm going to see about starting a band again.
Have any of you heard of Saosin?
Cove Reber is my vocal influence. I sing at his range and his style.





I'm excited about it... that's why I wanted to share... Big Grin

Superman doesn't exist, but we see him as a good guy with awesome powers. With your logic we shouldn't give him a label because he doesn't exist. The joker is a prick and he doesn't exist, but his character portrays him as a psychopath.
