Human soul

Started by Lemual Poot. Last reply by Lemual Poot Mar 29. 45 Replies

I've heard many so called atheists refer to the "soul" as if it actually existed.  My question is:  If you believe humans have a soul are you really an atheist? Continue

Donald, you might have better results if you post on Discussion, and at least the subject stays together. The Comments leave me cold, too. Exchanges become far apart and it takes hunting to find the trail.

I thought it was about legalities also, but it seems difficult to reply to the replies. I follow the link and it drop me in the middle of a page that has a variety of subjects. Maybe it is the setup allowed by Atheist Nexus. For instance, I have not figured out how to have replies directed to those who graciously come to my blog where I can answer them without writing an entirely different reply. So, when I come here I am always confused because the reply I seek isn't attached to the chain. I can't explain it any other way. So, I'm replying to things that probably have absolutely nothing to do with what I say.

Ummmm...I thought FFRF was mostly about legal issues - the absolute separation between state and church....  At least that's what their publication, Freethought Today is mostly about.  So I don't get the purpose of this particular gab fest, to tell y'all the truth.

Patricia, perfect answers. Now, we can set them to rap and music and have an excellent response to each comment.

It was too busy answering the prayers to win the game, or for the girl to get her longed for date, or for someone to get a new computer when the old one crashed, or a high school graduate to get her gown on a great sale, or................

It just seems that God is never where its supposed to be or should be. Where was he on 9/11? What about during the great Tsunami, the Sandy Lake massacre or during Katrina? All of those people couldn't have been evil and sinful. There had to be one honest man carrying a lantern somewhere in all of that group. What about the lost airliners? Ferguson? Individual suicides, murders, rapes and child abductions? It would see that an all-powerful being could prevent these things from happening especially seeing that not only is it all-powerful, but omniscient. We should never know that harm was following us because it would be taken out of service and we would know nothing about it. I don't like mysterious ways. I like looking behind the curtain, beneath the cape and even checking algorithms.

Good answers Patricia.  I especially like "Shitty plan".

Donald, I like your post about god never showing-up.

Love Hannibal Buress! He hits the nail on the head. First, he addresses the problem--doing nothing and leaving whatever there is to do up to an entity that seems more like a wanna be character in a vague attempt at a Marvel Comic Book. (the Bible) I get messages and explanation that I’m sure many of you do asking for your prayers to help "God" override the laws of nature and do them a personal favor. It would seem that people would realize that this entity fell asleep at the switch long ago and has been on sabbatical for a couple of millennia. Not only has it been tardy, it just plain doesn’t show up. PERIOD! Not to worry, although the entity has shown up to help his faithful minions (a great image, but insulting to my little yellow friends.) Instead, God gets a free pass for its inability to arrive anywhere, even in the wrong place. Instead, his loyal zombies excuse his inability to get the job done by saying that whatever happens, especially bad things are God’s will and that we wouldn’t understand because God works in mysterious ways. My vision is 20/20 it seems that God doesn’t work at all and has been drawing an unemployment check for at least 10,000 years. They might as well call me. I may not be able to do much, but I could run to get a doctor, bring food and clothes, build shelter and even pour water of lips into a fevered body.
