Oh I dunno, Roy. I think Jehovah would make an impressive Bond villain. Well, Austin Powers villain, really. "No Mr. Powers, I expect them to die!"
I have no problem with that at all.
Jason is correct a God that alternates between playing hide and seek and search and destroy is far from impressive.
Good points Jason. I hadn't thought in that direction. If anyone else posts a reply to me on that web site, I will use these additional arguments to repost.
I don't think anyone is even looking at the site though. It appears that I'm the only one that has ever posted on it.
To add to D.O.S's points, gravity works every single time. It is more than measurable, it is dependable. Unlike that capricious whack job Jehovah, who never bothers showing his face when you go looking, and when he does interact with the physical universe it's always thru voices in somebody's head, sometimes telling them how much he loves them, and often telling them to kill their own kids or those of others. Gravity can be cruel, but at least it's consistent.
D.O.S. Hope you don't mind, but I just posted your first reply to me on this web site. I think I can delete it if there is a problem.
Who Touched Me, Freedom from...
Another thing you might point out since they are quoting scripture is that according to scripture God is an untrustworthy bastard. God admits to being deceptive. Check out Ezekiel 14:9 and Thesselonians II 2:11 among others. A supreme being who finds it necessary to lie? How pathetic.
Gravity can be measured. Various experiments have confirmed its existence. It can be observed, though indirectly. It is quantifiable in various ways. How do you quantify/measure God. What experiments have been or can be conducted to determine God's existence? None.
Can anyone help me with a good response to this gravity argument?
""“Why don’t we trust God?” Hebrews 11:1 says, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things unseen.” Faith comes from hope being realized in substance according to the evidence. We don’t see gravity but we experience gravity all the time. We know the truth about gravity and come to trust it even though we do not see it. It could be said that we have a relationship with gravity. Our lives are touched by gravity everyday."
Good minus God
I have a request. I have posted this in the following two groups: "Strong atheists" and "Winning Arguments."
Will someone please consider commenting on an opinion letter in my local newspaper?. I would do it, but I can't state a response as eloquently as some of you. I'll be brave enough to do it someday.
Hopefully it will generate a conversation and bring out some local atheists. I know it will stir up the religious folks, but I'm betting that their responses will get some local atheists to post. I need to meet some local people like me. It's a college town, so I know they're out there.
The Website allows for comments via Facebook and I don't expect anyone to register just to post.
