When you say ‘it’s a battle between Good and Evil,’ you are putting Satan on the same level of God. You are saying he is just as powerful as your Lord, and that would mean Satan is a God, how else would he be able to battle your God? – an ant can’t battle a tiger. This means that not only do you believe intwo Gods, but your Omniscience God, actually finite and unimportant — He can’t even win a battle against Satan.
I would rather rot in hell, before worshiping Christians’ bigoted, racist, sexist, egotistical, narcissistic God.
“Great truths do not take hold of the hearts of the masses… And now, as all the world is in error, I, thought I know the true path – how shall I, how shall I guide? If I know that I cannot succeed and yet try to force success, this would be but another source of error. Better, then, to desist and strive no more. But if I strive not, who will?” – Chuang Tzu
I do not believe in your god, therefore any argument involving your religion is invalid to me.
I’m not trying to be mean, but I don’t understand how praying to an infinite ‘God’ to help a situation that he caused in the first place is going to help…
Know what is in front of your face, and what is hidden from you will be disclosed to you. For there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed. –The Gospel of Thomas
“How could a perfect and infinite God have created a finite world riddled with evil?” - Armstrong : A History Of God.
That quote got me thinking. God is perfect. God is infinite. If that is true, then how for fuck’s sake did he make such a fucked up world? I mean, really, a drunk demi-god could have done a better job. Why didn’t he just put the that stupid tree somewhere else? Unless of course he wanted us to fuck up. Or better yet, why didn’t he do a better job making Adam? I don’t know, I just don’t buy the whole bible story. God had to be black and white, he has to be good and evil. That is the only explication on how there is evil in our world, if God made everything… God is good, but God is also evil. I think the quote from Isa 49:7 sums it up, “I form the light and create darkness; I make peace and create evil; I the Lord do all these things.” So God is basically telling his followers that he isn’t perfect, he’s also equally evil.
But that isn’t what we’re taught in Sunday school. We’re taught that God is good. God loves everyone equally. It’s a lie. If God loved everyone equally he wouldn’t send over half of his creations to hell just because they fell for his trap. A trap is really what it is. It is like the game Simon-Says, you’re told to follow what I say, not what I do. The rules are easy enough, I played it in pre-school. But it is more easier said than done. The game is a trap, meant to make you do the wrong motions. God is basically playing this evil game of Simon-Says with us, but in the end the loser doesn’t just get laughed at, they get an eternity of hell.
“We should not listen to those who tell us that … mortals should think like mortals, but we should achieve immortality as we may, and strain every nerve to live by the highest things in us … Man finds the life of Reason best, since in it he finds his true nature.” – Aristotle
“I condemn Christianity, and confront it with the most terrible accusation that an accuser has ever had in his mouth. To my mind it is the greatest of all conceivable corruptions… it converted every value into its opposite, every truth into a lie and every honest impulse into an ignominy of the soul… I call Christianity the one great curse, the one enormous and innermost perversion, the one great instinct of revenge, for which no means are too venomous, too underhand, too underground and too petty – I call it the one immortal blemish of mankind.” – Friedrich Nietzsche
