Religion loves to deploy magic whenever science deconstructs religion. When science picks religious beliefs apart, religion turns to magical incantations in order to convolve faith and reality. Evolution? God did that. The creation of the universe out of nothing? God did that. Who created God? God is eternal.
How long should we allow such sleight of hand to be the response to such questions? How dare theists use such childish rebuttals as responses to these important questions! What do you think?
Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. – Romans 1:24-32
The Bible declares that homosexuals deserve death, but there are those who still think that they can be gay and a Christian at the same time. How is it that some people can conflate these two ideologies? How can a person consider themselves Christian in this day and age when the Bible says that homosexuals deserve death for their “sins”?
How is it that God sees everything but failed to intervene during black slavery, the crusades, women’s forced indebted servitude, rape, child molestation, the outcasting and murder of homosexuals and all of the mass genocides of the 19th and 20 centuries?
Proverbs 5:21 – The Lord sees everything you do. Wherever you go, he is watching.
Hebrews 4:13 – Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
Proverbs 15:3 – The eyes of the LORD are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.

As a final nail in the coffin of the creation account, let us examine a definitive hole in the creation mythos on day five. On this day, birds are created, alongside the animals in the seas. On day six, land animals are created. However, again in using the fossil record, we find a glaring hole in this account. Birds are direct descendants of dinosaurs. Fossil evidence establishes that dinosaurs and birds had congruent features such as hollow, pneumatized bones, were nest-builders and had similar digestive behaviors. Archaeopteryx is a classic example of a fossil that fills a missing link gap.
This brings us to our inevitable dilemma. Land animals are clearly created on the sixth day, after birds! This runs in direct opposition to what Paleontology has shown us! We can even ignore the overwhelming evidence for evolution because the bible does not subscribe to this fact. Let us examine the fossil record. Fossils in lower layers died longer ago than specimens found in higher layers. It can be viewed as the earth tree rings. When do you ever find a bird fossil at a portion of the earth’s strata lower than the first land animals? Never! It never happens! Therefore, you can exclude all of the overwhelming evidence that science has culled together, such as similar bodily characteristics, habits, conclusive DNA evidence (it is scientifically proven that a T-Rex and bird are a closer match DNA-wise than an alligator, a reptile) and the fact that feathers developed in the fossil record with dinosaurs and no other such animal. The layers of the stratum show that the land animals came first and that birds came after. There is no way to provide confluence to the text. It is irreconcilable.
Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. – Colossians 3:18.
This is why there was a need for a women’s right revolution! The Bible inculcated these teachings to men on how a female should behave! If it were not for the Bibles teachings, women would have been treated as equals. How can we overlook this mainstay in the Christian religion? We can’t. The Bible is wrong for teaching this. There is no God.
“Anyone who beats their male or female slave with a rod must be punished if the slave dies as a direct result, but they are not to be punished if the slave recovers after a day or two, since the slave is their property. – Exodus 21:20-21
How can anyone profess the Jewish or Christian faith when it itself condones slavery! How can any racial minority be a Christian when Jesus himself did not condemn
Tell slaves to be submissive to their masters and to give satisfaction in every respect; they are not to talk back, not to pilfer, but to show complete and perfect fidelity, so that in everything they may be an ornament to the doctrine of God our Savior. – Titus 2:9-10
Some people believe that crushed rhino horn can cure a range of illnesses and it is even viewed as an aphrodisiac in Traditional Asian Medicine. However, the rhino horn is comprised of keratin, the same material as our fingernails and has no medicinal value. If rhino horn proved to have medicinal benefits, it would mean that we too can acquire these effects by biting our fingernails! Unfortunately, this ill-conceived notion is the reason why rhinos are being hunted to extinction. Look at what belief can make people do.
If belief can make humans hunt a species to extinction, what can a belief in a God lead to? Alienation of other groups? Wars? Terrorism? Shunning? Hatred towards homosexuals? What else does a belief in a fake God make people do?
They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”
But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.” – Genesis 11:1-7
What was God afraid of? What did he think the people of Babel would or could do? Why did God say that nothing would be impossible for them to accomplish? Why was an omnipotent being like God afraid of humans?
If God is eternal and all knowing, then why should the religions
Excerpt from the book The True Nature Of Human Nature
Over the years, religion has justified its existence via passages from a holy book and have stated that since the quotes listed in these writings are inspired by their God, they should be adhered to as fact. Previous arguments in the past would involve a quote from scripture as their basis of faith and that these truths were undeniable. These truths included that the world was flat, that the Earth was the center of the solar system or universe, that every creature on the planet was created by God and so on. However, when science provided facts that were contrary to these truths, these principals were either stated to have never been true in the first place or were assimilated into their beliefs. This retroactive evidentialism has continued throughout the history of religion in the face of science. If a sentient creator compelled man to write these books via inspiration and revelation, then why is such fine-tuning of their beliefs essential? I have heard the argument from progressive Christians in the past that the Bible, for example, was written so far back in time that you must understand the Bible in its context and that you cannot bring a modern idea into the classic religious infrastructure without violating or harming scripture. This point of contention falls flat on its face as it places the supreme deity in a position of disenfranchisement, a creator without all of the answers.
