Alan: 'atheist' is capable of defending himself without your help. In fact, his sentence structure and grammar are much more understandable than yours. If you expect others to read your stuff, how about putting a little more effort into writing it - like maybe proof reading.
---jerry6593 on 5/25/10


Jerry ... Sadly you continue to bring great discredit on yourself and on the Christian faith.

You come up with nonsense such as "All atheists are self-absorbed, theophobic crybabies"

and "I don't believe in atheists"

Jerry an atheist does not beleive in a deity. There are millions such people.

If you are so foolish as to say yuo do not beleive in atheists, no wonder there are those who think that you are foolish to beleive in a god.

The existence of god is far less provable than the existyence of people whpo do not beleive in God.

You are making the task of sensible Christians so much more difficult with yuor nonsense.

Regulation is like a poker game with the rules, winning hand and ante, buy-in, etc. stated up front before anyone sits down to play.

No regulation is like a poker game where the people with the most chips to start get to define the winning hand, after they get their cards and they have seen everyone else's. They may not always win, but they rarely lose.

Jerry, BTW, you can be so articulate when you are huffy and puffy at the same time. But if I don't exist, who is sleeping with my wife?

MOST of the foods,drugs, and chemical we use are toxic.

HOW ABOUT CHEMO???

to john

gov't taking over our financial system is called communism.

so our pharmaceuticals are run by govt? or do they have strict regulation. if there is no regulation about production & manufacturing of medicine, then many consumers will get hurt.

same thing goes with banking & money
who are these banking CEOs accountable to? you are saying to give these financial CEOs & wall street no regulation & they can do whatever they want to? that will end up in corruption, & will bankrupt the economy. do you think that these financial CEOs & wall st will self regulate themselves? if there is TOO much freedom, then it will be a LAWLESS country.

AlanUK -Atheist knows God exist and is dedicated in opposition. Its the "anti-Christ" who stands strongest in opposition to holiness not the unbeliever. Unbelievers have no future beyond the grave and would rather drink in revelry instead of wasting their short 80-years on a blog of believers who will never be convinced to trade heaven for hell.

If I have a conscience, as you admit, why do I or anyone else need the holy spirit, to know right from wrong? I am following a voice I don't hear, and you are following one that you do hear. That makes no sense to me. But you're the one hearing voices. Better look into that.

Alan: "Why do you accuse Atheist of hating God?"

Sorry, Alan, but I don't believe in 'atheists'. These are people who have consciences just like you and me, through which the Holy Spirit speaks to them. The fact that they don't recognize this voice as being from God is secondary.

I have known several 'atheists' quite well in my long professional career. In every case, they became 'atheists' because of an hypocritical family or clergy member who hurt them in some way, and their anger then turned against the God those people claimed to serve.

Just my personal belief. Since the word tells us we all know there is a God because of the things that have come together in this world to make life possible...

*I* believe that atheists are very hurt and angry at God because they blame HIM for the pain in their lives and not their own sin. They wish he didnt exist. So much so that they lie to themselves.
---JackB on 5/18/10


Mark,

I never said that anyone does anything on 'behalf' of 'god'.

'God' does not exist. People use 'god' the concept, as imagined differently in hundreds of religions to justify the belief and actions that they want to take anyway. People use the concept of 'god' on their own behalf to do whatever and claim whatever they want. It's a no holds bar belief that strips responsiblity from the individual and passes culpability to a 'higher power'. That the higher power is defined differently with different expectations for every religion and practically every individual matters not. Your 'god' allows you to justify what what you do no matter what.

Peter, I gave the same answers to Athiest on another blog. He keeps saying that we do things on behalf of God and I told him if they are killing people it is not God's fault. They do not belong to the body of Christ. All through the centuries man have killed in the name of God, but that is not God's doing. It is sin in man. There is no problem with God, there is many problems with man. That is the whole story of Scripture, how man rebelled against God and how God restores that which was lost. How can anyone expect for Athiest to even understand spiritual things? just not possible.

"Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be."

Jerry & others ... Why do you accuse Atheist of hating God?

Do you hate fairies, & FatherChristmas?

If you think something or someone does not exist, you can't hate it or him.

Atheist hates what some people make of their god. I hate the actions some people take because of their so-called Christian beliefs

If belief in fairies made some people go round commiting murder, I would hate that distorted belief. But I cannot hate the fairies, 'cos they don't exist.

Atheist cannot hate God.

Atheist: Please be careful about something here

It is not wrong to point out (correctly in many cases) that what PEOPLE do in God's name is bad

But that does not mean either that God approves of those actions, or that, as a result, God is in the wrong

PLEASE do not judge God by the actions of his followers - God made them, but they are resonsible for their actions

Cluny,

If my assumption were that Zeus was a 'god' along with any number of other 'gods', then my assumption would be a matter of 'faith' as much as your assumption that Jesus is the one and only 'god'. But the choice to believe in any 'god' or 'gods' is includes infinite imaginings of 'gods' to chose from, while the choice of belief in no 'god' requires no imagined mythological 'god' whatsoever. Hardly the same thing...

I do conclude that if there were a 'god' that was once so proactively powerful and aware to creat all things, he would not now just be sitting back waiting to act out the confused and uncertain script than many read from the bible.
---atheist on 5/18/10


atheist, you seem to labor under the false idea that God is supposed to do something for you.

Yet, your assumption that there is no God is just as much based on faith as the position of anyone here.

Atheist: on your comment 'I hate what people use 'god' for' in some cases I will agree, but I think you actually mean that you find things for which PEOPLE use God to excuse, and you dislike those things

As you do not believe in God, there are also things that God does, that we (even Christians, very often) do not actually realize that it IS God who is doing it

From your point of view, I understand what you mean, though I think you overstate your views
---peter3594 on 5/17/10


Jerry,

Zeus and Minerva did nothing to me. Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy did nothing for me. I don't hate them. They didn't and/or don't exist. As far as god, I don't believe in god. I just believe in one less god than you do. (Darwin and Dawkins are not 'gods' BTW.)

To the degree that people take comfort in believing in god---I get that. But I doesn't stop there. People use their religions to justify all sorts of irrational beliefs and actions which includes mistrust of others based on heritage, as Trav demonstrates in his thinking and Hitler showed through the horror of the Holocaust.

I hate what people use 'god' for, which is a position that obviously many people of faith agree with.

Exactly how am I misinterpreting? Further, if these words can be so easily misinterpreted, using their plain talk meanings, how is anyone going to gain a clear idea of what Jesus says?

---Trav on 5/16/10


Atheists point out wars are fought for many reasons, but use 'god' and religion to excuse, or in some cases promote the killing that occurs. Ironically, people usually pray and ask 'god' for support before the do this killing.

There is no proof anyone has ever been 'saved', but it is clear that people have been killed throughout history in wars between peoples, each claiming the support of 'god'.

Christians do not believe in Santa Claus. When Christians kill people do they do it because they don't believe in Santa Claus? NO! Do atheists kill people because they don't believe in 'god'. Also NO!

Not believing in mythic creatures, does not cause someone to believe that killing and murder is okay.

Cluny -- Many atheists subscribe to the fallacy that most of the worlds wars are wars over religion.
It's not true. The vast majority of wars have been fought over territory or for protection against a hostile force without religious motivation. (albeit, some see Communism as a "religion")

You are absolutely RIGHT about death toll produced by the action of atheists. Even in the death toll from wars alone...historically, deaths caused by atheists far outweighs all others. That's not counting the deaths due to torture, starvation and murder that atheists have perpetrated...even on their own.

I have made it clear that it is religions, of all types that bother me.

The Christian right is never not in the news and never has nothing to say about just about anything that goes on in the country that doesn't directly effect me.

As far as smearing religions, let me point out one thing. I hardly ever see anything here that says anything complimentary about a faith other than Christainty. Smears of other religions is the norm, afterall you don't believe in their 'god'.

I took your answer to be: "From his point of view..." in paragraph 2.
I now see that "his" referred only to the Muslin terrorist of the previous paragraph.

Larry and Donna,

In this blog I have not made a single reference to President Obama. I have written about how I feel, that depending on perspective those who terrorize us, we can looked on as terrorists. I have written how I believe that the religious (not just christians) use scripture and god to justify their actions against others.

I have no idea how you could misread those comments below to creative the responses you have. Although, reading and interpreting scripture to fit one's world view seem to be a consistent practice of the religious, so I should not be surprised for my words to be twisted so you can make any response you wish.
---atheist on 5/13/10


Atheist - Donna is largely correct though Obama was not really poor. His experience is atypical for 1960 but becoming more common with the mixing of races.
Obama has never had a black parent or black sibling, and his white teenage mother went on to obtain a PhD in Anthropology and taught him Christianity was another philosophy on the bookshelf. The United Church of Christ appealed to him because of what it was doing in the community and salvation was a subset. Ironically as a mixed child Obama's church was a black congregation in an almost totally white denomination.
More often than not boys who struggle with abandonment and a relationship with their father also struggle in their relationship with the Holy Father. Not all but many.

Atheist-- Yes. He was well aware as a child that he was "poor" and "black" and probably that his fathers people had suffered persecution from "Christians"(so-called). He tells (in Dreams of my Father) how he sought out Marxists when he was young. He felt quite removed from the mainstream of American life
The church he attended for some twenty years was one that taught, not standard fundamentalist Christianity, but Black Liberation Theology.

Despite his privileged education on the mainland USA, his viewpoint is, yes, QUITE different from that of most Americans..which may account for his "less-than-determined" stance on Islamic terrorism.

From his pont of view, with friends or family killed with a 'collateral damage attack', living in continuous and hopeless proverty because geographic divisions defined by an apparently everlasting war, and indoctrinated since childhood in religious literal fundamentalism, and the promise of Paradise and monetary reward to his surviving family, he as the hero,we are the terrorists.

Atheist: I never know what 'soft on terrorism' actually means, because different people use it in different ways

I disagree with you on many of the things you wrote, and 'my God is better' statment is incorrect s well: If God IS, then some statements about God are correct, some statements about God are wrong

So either my belief is correct, or it is not

You may, of course, simply be trying to say that if you believe differently I should not insult you - which is fine, but I cannot also say that your statement is correct

atheist

What I have realized is man WILL pervert everything, money, sex, even religion for selfish reasons.
remember jim jones, david koresh, binladen. even televangelist like hinn, copeland, & other 'prosperity preachers' who say that give this amout & with faith poof you will be rich & if it does not work, 'something is wrong with YOU'.

here is the situation, granting that obama should be strong in dealing with the terrorist. so when he orders to bomb a 'suspected' terrorist base will it also kill civilians? so when & if that happens, that might alienated & drive the suffering to support the terrorist or bec a terrorist

one reporter said about the 'search & destroy' during the vietnam war was soldiers or chopper gunships would spray machine gun fire on a village killing civillians or their source of livelihood like a carabao. well, that tactic has created another enemy.

Atheist... In response to your comment in the other blog. Yes I know enough math with algebra based formula to figure out the calculated dose for a child with an order for injection of antibiotics to be given, such as 100 mg per kilograms of wt divided into 3 equal doses. Thats my job. Can you do that?
Actually algebra and math formulas can be traced back to the ancient Babylonians.

One man can not be strong or weak on terrorists, especially when the minds of many terrorists are infected with irrational religious beliefs. Nor can the religious of another persusaion pray to their 'god' and receive license to demonize others so infected.

You cannot play the a game of "my god is better than your god", denigrate and hate all adherents of the other religions, and find or make peace.

Religion is a contagion that eventually kills more than it 'saves'.

Is soft on terrorism the same as "turning the other cheek", and after the cheek is turned do we look blindly at the suffering and deaths of those who are not of "our" religion, whatever that religion is?

I dont believe that the executive branch,meaning the president,or should say he has cabinet members that are responsible for security,as is federal state and local law enforcement,and every citizen.

JamesBond: your comment on 5/11 is good.....

Indeed, we should ask what can Obama actually DO to reduce terrorism......

We have not seen many good ideas so far: Bush's idea of a war [and Guantanamo] did capture many, but it seems to have also produced more who hate the US

Obama's 'friendly' approach will help those who are willing to hear and think, but what about those who are driven to hate?

What do we do with them?

Any president will have a terrible time, especially while fighting so much about money - we can't keep borrowing from China for ever!

Mr Bond. Mr Obama is actually tougher in the War on Terror but pathetically weak in speech and has fumbled badly the Military Tribunal issue. The last administration was much tougher in speech but put forward a half-hearted intelligence insulting plan against terrorists camps in the hills of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Obama is pushing the troops now where they should have been 8 years ago.

Anyway the President needs to return to the bedside of Billy Graham where he was two weeks ago and seek biblical counsel. He cannot go another day without acknowledging God publicly. He needs to get real.

Psalm 127 Unless God watches over the city, the watchmen guard it in vain.

Nothing else will work.

Mr.Bond: While I do not think Mr.Obama is weak on terrorists, I do have a slight concern that in the long term he may be remembered in the same was Chamberlain was -

A man who tried to appease an enemy (in this case Hitler), honestly hoping that this was possible (is it possible with people who dislike the US? I am unsure) but who in the end was shown to have being making a mistake

Is he really weak on terrorist? or is he trying to do something about them? ONE MAN, no matter how much power he has, can't handle demonically driven, angry, furiously mad people who only want to kill others-how can one man handle all those demons?

So I say it's up to the people to do what God tells them to do. 2nd Chronicles 7:14, If my people, who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.

Now that isn't too hard to do, is it? Who is doing it? And why aren't we doing what God is telling us to do? PRAY, HUMBLE YOURSELF, SEEK his face, etc. Now there's an idea, do it God's way!

There actually is no assumption here, but yours. He did not ask, "Since you think..." which would be assumption. But, he asked, "if Obama is weak on terrorists, how do you think he should handle the security of the US?

Since he preceded the question with "So", he was probably a part of at least one previous conversation on the very subject of Obama's supposed weakness. In addition, in context, the author probably was implying the subject of the if phrase. I.e. If [you think that] Obama... However, that is supposition, also.

Maybe, they should teach critical reading as a prerequisite to critical thinking. :~)
