Why is it that God is allowed to hold humankind to an unfair and unrealistic set of standards and rules that no-one can possibly achieve or even logically spend their entire life trying to achieve…Continue

Last Year

Back in good ole' 2009 I was not in the United States of America where fortunately everybody is allowed to believe or not believe whatever they choose (for the most part anyway). No, I was in Afghanistan, the home of the Taliban, Al Quieda and another whole slew of groups that think that the world would be just fine if everybody on it would be one thing only, a muslim. It's a shockingly poor country with very few natural resources and the people are as backwards and ignorant as their ancestors a few centuries past. That is what formal religions do to folks who would otherwise be well-adjusted and productive people. In this case it turns them into what I like to call Islamofascists. They want to use their religious belief to forcibly convert everybody and kill anyone that refuses to join their ignorant group or that they think they are superior to, like the Jews. I just hope my brother and sister military people can keep finding those nutjobs and putting them out of Our misery.

Why such a difference?

I am not a biblical scholar. I can't even say I've read much of the Bible since it's so boring and illogical. But with what I have read and have picked up from others who quote it in different areas I have been in I noticed something wild. I never even thought about it until one of my favorite comedians, Lewis Black, made mention of it. Did you notice the fundemental change in the man-in-the-sky between the Old and New Testaments? It's like night and day! In the Old Testament he was (as…

God's Song (That's Why I Love Mankind) by Randy Newman

"Cain slew Abel Seth knew not why

For if the children of Israel were to multiply

Why must any of the children die?

So he asked the Lord

And the Lord said:



Man means nothing he means less to me

Than the lowliest cactus flower

Or the humblest Yucca tree

He chases round this desert

'Cause he thinks that's where I'll be

That's why I love mankind



I recoil in horror fro the foulness of thee

>From the squalor and the filth and the… Continue

Ok, so God is all-powerful, huh? All-seeing, all-knowing and the creator of everything that is, ever was or ever will be, do I hear you Christians, Jews and Muslims right? Ok, then riddle me this Batman! If your god is so completely perfect, then why did he create other life forms (humans to be exact) that are so incredibly faulty? And as you claim, they are in his image to boot! Then, to make matters even crazier, this kooky diety of yours blames each human being for their own faults (calling… Continue

Paul,

From a former soldier to another welcome! I'm new here too! Your observations regarding the ignorant tribes of infidel haters is right on!

Hi Paul. That's a well-written truthful piece about the Islamofascists. Welcome to this friendly meeting place where freethinking atheists recognise that gods are phoney and religion is a fraud used to control people;
and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and more.
