The evidence for God has never been weaker. Science has completely overshadowed religion. What evidence do you have that God exists? And personal spiritual experiences don’t count.! It needs to be tangible.
This is the problem with Christians. They play games with their false logical reasoning and move the goalposts in an argument when the Atheist is close to scoring a point. A perfect example is when you try to disprove the Christian God and they state, “are you saying that A god does or cannot not exist?” They add the indefinite article so that you must disprove every god in order to disprove THEIR God. This is truly a farce and it needs to be addressed by the Atheists community.
“The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one. The happiness of credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality of happiness, and by no means a necessity of life.”
― George Bernard Shaw
What do you think about the above quote? True or false?
When Jesus (God), the originator of the cosmos and creator of all life, specifically human beings, was confronted with an epileptic individual in Mark 9, did he cure his neurological illness by touching his head and somehow halting the incessant random impulses in the brain with his magical powers? No. He exorcized the demon that was controlling this individual’s body. Epilepsy is the misfiring of neurons that unconsciously promotes sudden and awkward movements entirely out of the control of the afflicted individual. Demonic exorcism is not a valid form of treatment. If this is the God who created us in whole, why was he ill prepared to administer the proper care? Doctors today can explain in great detail what exactly happens during a seizure. Why is it that human beings (created by God) are better equipped to care for this malady? If Jesus was the creator of all humanity, why did he provide false information to be inscribed in his inspired word?
If God is eternal and all knowing, then why should the religions inspired views change or evolve once science and basic logic postulates the true reality? If the Lord is truly omniscient then why aren’t his early teaching concretized from inception, never to change again? Why does religion need to adapt to the ever increasing knowledge bestowed by science if God knows all?
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.
And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground. – Luke 22:44. When Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane the night before he was crucified, it is stated in Biblical lore that his sweat became like drops of blood. Hematidrosis is a real medical condition in which the blood vessels surrounding the sweat glands rupture and mix with the sweat, producing drops of sweat. This is rare but is caused by extreme emotional distress. In this story, he knew that he was going to die. Likewise, when he was wandering the Judaean Desert for 40 days and 40 nights, when he intersected with Satan, he was truly tempted. He was starving, he knew that he was powerful and that he was there for a reason. Therefore, when the Devil offered that Jesus makes food for himself, etc., etc., it took every fiber of his being to resist.
Fast forward to today and analyze those who participate in Lent. It is not uncommon for parishioners to abstain from chocolate, coffee or cheese. What are these hollowed displays of piety supposed to mean? If God actually existed, what would he say to these empty offerings? Would God accept these pittances of sacrifice when the reality is that you are probably doing things that are in contrast with the Bible? Is it okay to sacrifice a food product for Lent when you are sleeping with someone with being married? Are you following exactly what the Bible prescribes as a godly way of life? If not, then you are wasting your time abstaining from a food group because God will not be listening to you. Then again, he is not listening to you because he does not exist.
Nearly two people die each second, according to http://www.ecology.com/birth-death-rates/. Take a minute to contemplate that fact. Let that idea marinate in your minds. By the time you finish reading this sentence, approximately 16 people would have died either because of murder, suicide, an accident, disease, natural causes, or other reasons. If this is too surreal to comprehend, please go to http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/ and watch the “Deaths Today” ticker. It is quite sobering to see the number of deaths that occur every second. After viewing the ticker for some time, contemplate on why this is happening, if you subscribe to the biblical creation account. This constant torrent of death is occurring simply because a couple of people disobeyed God and ate from the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. According to the Bible, the simple disobedience by earths primary couple is responsible for the approximately 100 billion who have died since the beginning of time. Is this a justifiable punishment for people who are not responsible for the first couple’s non-compliance? Is it moral to in essence kill billions because of our primal progenitors’ godly insubordination? Is it not more moral and understanding to think that these deaths happen because this is what occurs in evolution? Please comment below!
