First topic message reminder :

GOD’S MENTALITY

I cannot help but wonder what kind of mentality has God. When you spend money, time, and effort to make or create something, would you then allow something else to come along and demolish your creation? Would you stand back and watch as it’s being destroyed? Of course not, and yet this is exactly what God did, (assuming he exists, of course.) Having apparently created the Earth either he didn’t care or was helpless, whilst asteroids, ice-ages, volcanoes, earthquakes, and tsunamis, destroyed much of his creation. Was he responsible for the negative disasters that struck the planet? Did he create them on purpose to destroy a mistake? If so, then he is not the omnipotent, infallible, and loving father we are led to believe.

Moving on, he supposedly created all the animals and birds etc, and yet what do we find? Timid animals such as a Gazelle or Impala, being pounced on by lions and leopards, tearing at their throats and neck. Can you imagine the sheer terror and fear those timid creatures must have felt? Just one example of bird predation, during the mating season when Black Headed gulls have young in the nest, you will see Herring Gulls bomb down on the nest and grab the young, fly off with them and eat them.

I put these facts to a Jehovah’s Witness at my door, he quite seriously replied: ‘Oh, that’s all Satan’s fault.’ Need I say I had a good laugh at such ignorance. Poor old Satan, he’s been accused of just about every negative issue that exists on planet Earth. And yet, all he did was encourage Adam and Eve to become aware of themselves as self-aware, free-thinking individuals, with the ability to make decisions for themselves. Had that not have happened then they would have been no more than pets, subservient to God, running at his beck and call. I’m sitting here typing away on my laptop, the product of a free thinking, enquiring, inventive mind. Had Adam and Eve not awaken to future potential, we’d still be wandering around naked, rummaging and foraging for food in the wilds.

Those stories don't say that God was able to do those things but did not do them -- they say he did them. It seems like you're being obtuse on purpose again.

No i'm not, just because God has the power to do something it does not mean he has to, just because we think he should does not mean he has to, who are we to say what iss or is not right..

i;m getting a little lost now, God can do and not do what ever he wants, the fact that we do not understand what or why he does it makes no difference to him or anything else, I'm pretty sure if a four year old watch a man stripping a car engine it would be equally baffling, we are like children before God..

There is no mistake

He knows he is onto a losing arguing so he is deliberately blurring the lines

Its ironic that the type of intervention they have been arguing involves god sticking his actual finger into things and yet their "proof" shows the exact opposite

I love atheists

The two of you are saying that God set up the world and hasn't intervened since.

I'm saying that almost the entire story of the Bible is one of God's intervening into human affairs, including the Flood, coming down as Jesus and preaching to people one on one, the many miracles recorded, etc.

I don't understand how you can believe in the Bible and yet say that God hasn't intervened since creating the world. Those two points appear to be in direct contradiction of one another.

That's very poetic Eds. But it doesn't explain why 1000s of people, including small children who haven't lived enough to truly appreciate most things, are brutally killed in natural disasters. It doesn't explain why millions of the same have to die of wasteful, painful diseases. It doesn't explain why there are parasitical insects that can burrow into living human flesh leading to slow, agonizing death.

I wont even add things like war, famine or human caused problems since you will justify those millions of deaths as 'human' caused- and so, astonishingly, nothing to with a possible 'god'.

Of course people 'must die'. And they would; from the process of aging mostly. But people dying in those natural horrors mentioned above, which are NOTHING to do with human causes, is uneconomic (from a creation pov); cruel (from a creation pov) and unfair (from a creation pov).

Of course people must die. But if they die before the age of even 5 then what have they ever lived for? And why so many evil, wicked people live wonderful lives till ripe old age on the opposite end?

IF there is a God; he or she is one cruel, sinister, twisted son of bitch  Twisted Evil 

Sorry I can't contribute more at this time, but I would like a response on this from eds x

I don't have a problem with any non religious views on God, but they still miss the difficult points, so what do you think of God with these factors in my quote?


Les it's going to be an answer that will never satisfy you. Because your interpretation of God is that you expect him to be like Superman; you want him to jump in front of the car hurtling to kill,the young mother, you want him to step in and stop the famine in Ethiopia thereby preventing hundreds of children dying.....


I'm afraid I dont hold to that belief that he must prevent these things and if he doesn't, then he doesn't exist.

Tell me, what if he did stop everyone from dying? What then? Would the world be better? Would we all behave better or worse?
How do you know what fate those people had in store had they not died then, on that particular day?
How do you know, what those starved children may have grown up,to be? Rapists? An army? The destruction of their village?

All stupid a hypothesis that sounds as ridiculous as saying "if there was a god then people wouldn't die!"

How absurd!
Do you want to live forever?  I don't!

Yes life is unfair. So what?
My dad died way before his "time" - so did my friends girl, she hung from her neck at two years old in a nursery and definitely died before her time.
Why did God "allow" that to happen? Why didn't he intervene? Should he intervene in all children's accidents or just some?

My answer is I don't know. I'm not sure I want him to "intervene".

In the same way your mum has no place now, really, to intervene in your life; she gave you good grounding (obviously, look at the  man you've become x), she set you up on a path of goodness and honesty and she taught you how to boil the kettle (lol) and to wait for cars to go past before you step,into the road.
What more can she do? It's up to you now.

Your only argument seems to be; why does God allow.........? (fill,in the blank)

So I'm turning it around and asking you: why shouldn't he allow.........?

In which case Eddie, why do Christians claim a miracle when someone is 'saved'. Why not say, God doesn't intervene (when there are so many cases of him supposedly doing just that in the Bible) and it was just good luck the people survived? They can't claim miracles for some and say he doesn't intervene for others.

Oh I believe in peoples right to practice it, it just pees me off when they want it all ways.   Terrible things that happen are never 'God's' fault, but anyone saved from those things are saved by God!   God never carries the can for inflicting  illness, but for some reason is always the one who is supposed to have 'saved' those that get better or don't die.   God saved my relative they say, not 'bloody God gave my relative a nasty disease'.

Eds, I'm not asking God to be a superman, I don't believe in God remember. I'm asking if there is a god why they wouldn't be more economic, and why they'd devise the most brutal, cruel deaths for people.

You keep saying I'm asking God to stop people dying- this is wrong. Of course people must die or we'd be over populated. But an economic God would have 'set' the age limit a bit lower rather than slaughtering the masses with tidal waves, famine, or parasitical infestations. Please don't make the mistake of thinking I'm somehow asking why people cannot live forever- to do so is to utterly misunderstand my point.

Your cousin had an accident as humans do and I'm sorry to hear that. There is no accident with natural disasters or diseases- I must ask, do you think God is in ANY way responsible for tidal waves, hurricanes, malaria or small pox? (to name some natural killers)

I'll emphasize, I'm not asking for people to live forever- I'm asking why a God would create a world where people must die in such awful NATURALLY caused ways?

On the OP, we are asking about God's mentality. Well surely any creator is powerful enough to have created the universe any which way he liked. He COULD have made a universe where people died younger (but at what we would consider a healthy age)- but instead he created a world where people be slaughtered by hurricanes, tidal waves, malaria, small pox (at one time), epidemics of many kind, earthquakes and so on.

Now, I'm not asking why God doesn't intervene. I'm asking if there is a God, to have created the universe with the needless suffering, pain and injustice it contains, often against those with no real experience of life- what kind of mentality do you think he has?

Les it's going to be an answer that will never satisfy you. Because your interpretation of God is that you expect him to be like Superman; you want him to jump in front of the car hurtling to kill,the young mother, you want him to step in and stop the famine in Ethiopia thereby preventing hundreds of children dying.....


I'm afraid I dont hold to that belief that he must prevent these things and if he doesn't, then he doesn't exist.

Tell me, what if he did stop everyone from dying? What then? Would the world be better? Would we all behave better or worse?
How do you know what fate those people had in store had they not died then, on that particular day?
How do you know, what those starved children may have grown up,to be? Rapists? An army? The destruction of their village?

All stupid a hypothesis that sounds as ridiculous as saying "if there was a god then people wouldn't die!"

How absurd!
Do you want to live forever?  I don't!

Yes life is unfair. So what?
My dad died way before his "time" - so did my friends girl, she hung from her neck at two years old in a nursery and definitely died before her time.
Why did God "allow" that to happen? Why didn't he intervene? Should he intervene in all children's accidents or just some?

My answer is I don't know. I'm not sure I want him to "intervene".

In the same way your mum has no place now, really, to intervene in your life; she gave you good grounding (obviously, look at the  man you've become x), she set you up on a path of goodness and honesty and she taught you how to boil the kettle (lol) and to wait for cars to go past before you step,into the road.
What more can she do? It's up to you now.

Your only argument seems to be; why does God allow.........?  (fill,in the blank)

So I'm turning it around and asking you: why shouldn't he allow.........?

Eds, I'm not asking God to be a superman, I don't believe in God remember. I'm asking if there is a god why they wouldn't be more economic, and why they'd devise the most brutal, cruel deaths for people.

You keep saying I'm asking God to stop people dying- this is wrong. Of course people must die or we'd be over populated. But an economic God would have 'set' the age limit a bit lower rather than slaughtering the masses with tidal waves, famine, or parasitical infestations. Please don't make the mistake of thinking I'm somehow asking why people cannot live forever- to do so is to utterly misunderstand my point.

bless you les, you cannot see beyond your personal bias, eddie hit the nail on the head, no answer given to you will be enough because you do not want there to be an answer, you have made you bed so lie on it..

those of faith in God have made theirs.... Smile

You do realize you and eddie do not share the same idea of God don't you? According to you the other day God directly intervened to make a woman walk again- at least be consistent haha

And again you and others FAIL to understand the difference between asking questions out of an academic interest in a subject and other peoples philosophies, and wanting a reason to believe.

I almost certainly wont change my beliefs, but that doesn't mean I can't have an interest in the beliefs of others, or enjoy questioning them. But you don't understand such matters, and never will Wink

GIG stop talking shit. There are religions whiich do not have problems with gays; you can also believe in a 'god' as eddie does, and it not be one mentioned in any religion. I could believe in a God, it is only the Abrahamic God that is homophobic.

But I don't believe in any God. Now stop being an illogical dimwit.

lol we aren't talking about allah or other gods are we, we are discussing the God of the bible, the one who speaks of gays as an abomination.... Smile 

do you wonder why allah, zeus, buddah, odin...allow suffering.. Smile

GIG, we aren't discussing the God of the Bible. Eddie isn't talking about the God of the Bible nor am I or others.

I could believe in any God; yet I believe none. There is no reason I cannot believe in the gods of the Hindus, Taoists, Druids, ancient Greeks, people like eddie etc that is based on my being gay- and the reason I don't believe in them is the SAME reason I don't believe in the god of the Jews, Christians and Muslims.

I love it how people act like atheists have reasons for rejecting the notion of God aside from the fact that there's no proof of God's existence. They're like a broken record; we don't believe because we like gay people, or because we want to sin in some other way -- it can't possibly be because in light of the facts, the notion of God is inherently ridiculous ...

It is a stupid argument agreed. I mean, I think it was Dawkins who said 'everyone is an atheist regarding all gods but their own'- well the reason we are atheists to all is the same reason they are atheists in regards to all those other gods  Smile

Its stupid to those who don't believe because the Holy Spirit changes a person and also experiencing a miracle changes a person . 
I suppose its hard for those who don't believe to even imagine what it feels like to be in the presence of the Holy Spirit .

Dibs, how do you explain the miracles claimed to have been witnessed by Hindus? (There is one more famous one in which models of Ganesh actually started pouring milk, all over the world).

Poppycock.
God loves all people. Only people who do wrong and hurt another, are his disappointments, and even then, he will forgive them - he must! He gave them free will.

To be judgemental is to do wrong. Therefore why would God judge someone who falls in love with another?
He doesn't judge: and neither should you.

I am happy to hear you have the feeling that the Holy Spirit is sometimes maybe it is true that once a person is a believer it can never be reversed no matter how much they deny the faith . 
i believe in once saved always saved so even a believer cannot give back his salvation because once Jesus accepts us as his kids its forever and can't be reversed . Make of it what you want but that's how i see it .

Only problem with that is that the Bible says my denial of the Holy Spirit absolutely cannot be forgiven, says Matthew 12:31. If there's a Hell, I'm going there  Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

I mean, I love the bones of les but I don't go around agreeing with every post he makes.
You can sometimes disagree.
