    Everything about denying God is flawed.

    Disagreed. God is a flawed concept. The mere existence of the New Testament tells us that at some point god decided he was wrong. That’s enough of a paradox to render the entire faith irredeemable

    Ok, I admit that my assumption was based on a faulty generalization that stems from some very bad experiences I've had with atheists online over the past couple of years.

    Many of the atheists I've met on the internet have proven to be mean people (there were the occasional exceptions, of course), and I correlated that to a philosophy borrowed from Christian apologetics (which states that without objective morality people cannot actually do 'the right thing'), leading me to come to the conclusion that most atheists are bad. I don't know whether that's true or not, but my generalization was still out of place, so I'd like to apologize if it offended you.

    What does it mean to be a Christian?

    How about God's morals, though. I'm mad at a bunch of people, so I'll kill everybody on Earth. Noah's flood.

    God is the Creator, and so He is free to do with His creation as He sees fit.

    If God changes his/her mind it’s a sign that that particular god in not omnipresent or omniscient, because knowing all would make that impossible, since they would never make a mistake or need to question anything they did. So everything that happens on earth at any time in history is god’s will.

    Including atheists, homosexuals, satanists, whores, criminals, atom bombs, Barack Obama, Muslims, Scientology, Pornographers, Meth, Cocaine, Fentanyl, North Korea, Charles Manson, AK-47s, iPhones, Artificial Intelligence, Dogs being able to lick their genitals, bible burning, shitty fuel economy, oil, environmental disasters, mass extinctions.

    If he exists, he’s a right ****.

    You presuppose that God has changed His mind.

    Do you suppose drowning all of humanity except for Noah and his wife was his original intent?

    If it was, then he’s a ****. If it wasn’t, then he changed his mind

    Do you suppose it may be possible that our mere mortal minds cannot fathom the motives and workings of the mind of the omnipotent Creator?

    If you can understand well enough to have faith, you can tell whether it’s moral or not.

    If you take everything into consideration, not is the more likely answer given the information presented. Frankly I’d rather believe it doesn’t exist than allow for such an asshole to be the boss.

    It's easy for people, who understand not the nature and mind of God, to sit back and "armchair quarterback" on The Lord, and say, "Look, He killed all those babies and kittens and whatnot. What an evil monster!"

    But to the maggot, the corpse upon which it feasts is the universe. See what I'm sayin'?

    If he looks upon us as maggots perhaps he’s less than worthy.

    Did I, or did you?

    You place such a high standard on an imaginary being that is so fatally flawed that either it wouldn’t know or care that we exist, or we’re merely to be toyed with. Given the biblical examples, the second would be more likely.

    All your questions will be answered by God, and I pray that it will not be too late when it happens. :pray:

    If you read the bible back to back

    1) he’s a narcissistic prick
    2) he’s a vile self absorbed child who has tantrums
    3) none of what is preached covers how someone with omnipresent and omniscient powers who knows everything about everything could possibly ever be upset, unless he was not actually either of those things.

    I’d venture neither of us actually know the answer to that, but reality isn’t leaning to your side there
