@Steelgrid & @Brassbull: religious folks will tell you that all those things have a positive purpose. Of course WE don`t get to know what it is until after we die, eh?

I found it on YouTube!
All Things Dull And Ugly from Monty Python! The comments there look a lot like the comments here...

@CrackerJack One of my points in the post is that charity is not a religious monopoly. Morals and religion are two separate things. Perhaps all that extra giving is in attonement for the damage done by the church, done, mostly, to the underclass.

sunday_scour: I disagree completely, and here is why. It`s has been proven that religious people not only give more money to charities, but give more of their time as well. If helping people out, feeding them, housing them when their homeless, and counseling them when they are depressed is wrong, then I don`t want to be what you deem to be `right`.

@CrackerJack I can tell from your posts that your are an intelligent man. My hope is that one day you apply that intelligence toward religion. Science has progressed society because it welcomes being wrong. It`s how better understanding is achieved. Religion is based on infalibility and tries its hardest NOT to change; thus this relic from our species` infancy has held us back and prevented improvenment by discouraging change. Again, if you ever seriously look into the matter, I know you will find religion to be less than it thinks it is. To the faithful, religion is sufficent to explain the world; to an athiest science is neccessary, but neither sufficient nor absolute in explaining existence. (I`m blatantly plagerizing Christopher Hitchens. I quote from his 2009 book on religion.)

Gerry: Nope, Wrong. Adam and Eve `sh|t in their won nest`, so to speak, were kicked out of Eden and mankind has been in sin ever since. And Adam and Eve didn`t just screw it up for mankind but all of creation as well.

Thankfully God loves us so much he sent his Son to redeem all of us, No other religion on earth can boast that all you have to do is ask for forgiveness from Jesus Christ, be saved, have your name written in the book of life, and go to heaven when you die.

Steelgrid: Man brought sin into the world, not God. The wages of sin are death in it`s various forms. Blaming God for sin is like the murderer blaming the judge at their murder trial.

Well;
He aint allowed in school,
He aint allowed at work,
He aint allowed in our government,
He aint allowed in our public places,

God is a gentleman, He dont go where He aint allowed.

And Steelgrid. He didnt kill His Son for no reason. The life of His Son was a ransom payment for us. But only the religious of us understand that so never mind.

How about just humans:

-weak knees
-exposed abdomen
-hemorrhoids
-eating and breathing through the same orifice
-reproductive organ right next to waste disposal orifice
-susceptibility to disease
-unnecessary organs: the appendix
-slow running speed
-arthritis
etc...

Now my previous statement was in assumption that people believe that God has its hand in everything. By assuming responsibility by default you accept the results of your creation.

I could retract and say that man created all of these things and more,, but that isnt the argument now is it?

@MCMXCII Consider truth or proof as an asymtote which evidence merely approaches.

I think it`s right for creators to judge their own creations. It`s how things get improved. If the current understanding of god does not satisfy, another will take its place. (This is not a troll post. It`s what I believe.)

@kittyloaf can`t tell you`re just trolling or typical Christian.
First thing first, there are proofs for Big Bang theory. Not only that, the theory also has been tested against many arguments, and it also has predicted correctly many later discoveries by scientists. That is why it`s called a "theory".
Secondly, if something is, by definition, cannot be proven, there is no point believing in it. Because I`m God and I say so. Can you disprove me? No?

You`d think God`s approval rating would`ve taken a hit after the death of 6 million people, dontcha think?

The comments in that article are stupid. One poster says, "The truth and logic is being a God fearing person, that means respect for him, athiest believe in big bang which has no proof but what man thinks."

So a scientific theory based on evidence and proof has no proof, while god, a being which by definition there cannot be proof for because he is supernatural, has proof.

The projection and rationalization is so thick, I feel like people are drowning in it

I expect a rock right outside to micromanage my life and provide for me. It is a bit disappointing but so far it has been there for me.

God clearly needs to take on board this feedback to both improve its service and win new customers. I expect to see a step change improvement in the near future. Competitors are likely to steal even more market share if no action is taken.
