  • Salem Witch Trials?

    Openly admitting to being atheist (or in some cases, just anything other than the Big 3 religions) in the US, or on a public forum in the US may get you:

    bullied
    insulted
    tortured
    attacked
    fired
    murdered

    For many atheists (among whose number I do not count myself --I don't 'believe in nothing') 'coming out' as a non-believer is social suicide. This delightful selection of bullying, name-calling, pitying, self-righteous, mocking responses more than adequately demonstrates exactly why so many feel thus.

    I am not (obviously) in favour of stating an opinion in public anonymously... but I certainly understand people's reasons for doing so.

  • I would ask you a similar question.. why do people NOT see how GOOD God is and How much HE LOVES YOU.... How can people NOT see that? I know the answer but just so you know it can be turned around as well .

  • Everyone knows the Bible was written by God THRU man! Do you REALLY think God picked up a pencil and paper and wrote a book and then it miraculously appeared on earth one day? And tell me, who was this super ego man? Jesus? How would a VIRGIN get pregnant? I suggest before you spout questions like this (which is clearly to cause an uproar) you research first.

  • Not one man, several men...
    Why do people post stupid, insulting questions anonymously?

  • "created by some super ego man" God isn't a man.

    "a book that was obvoiusly witten by a man" Man was simply God's tool for writing down His words. So, man didn't really write the Bible.

  • I don't understand it either. I do what I do, and believe what I believe (which is in noone and nothing) because I choose to, not because my parents shoved it down my throat as a child before I was old enough to decide for myself. I also make my choices based on what I feel is right, not because I'm afraid of being fried for all of eternity by a mythical being who only exists in legend and stories passed down.

  • If you had a one on one encounter with God, then you would understand. I am not trying to be rude but honest. I don't expect you to even possibly understand if you have had a personal encounter with God himself. I have had many, to where I can NOT possibly deny His existence. If I have had your experiences I would probably fill the same as you do.   I have this question for you who suposidly created Christianity anywy?  Who is this super ego man you are talking about?

  • I'm not even going to answer because obviously it won't matter what i say you have made up your mind. I feel sorry for you. Especially when the only reason you posted this was to get attention.
