    Why do Athiests and other non-god believing people have a problem with religion/god?

    Your concept of “God” is the straw man I was referring to. There are understandings of God that are not in conflict with free will. In ancient times natural disasters were seen as God’s punishment. That was because of an ancient concept of God. The reasoning in much of this thread parallels...

    Why do Athiests and other non-god believing people have a problem with religion/god?

    “God made man in his own image and likeness and man returned the favor.” I am simply saying that God is not a he or a she or an it. We fall into the trap of defining God to fit our purposes and then responding accordingly. In the instance of your post, you chose to use a word that is rooted...

    Truly brilliant! You build your own straw men and then knock the stuffing out of them. Good Show!

    Why do Athiests and other non-god believing people have a problem with religion/god?

    IT2002: A funny note: I went onto an online dictionary because I was curious how “omnipotent” was actually defined. The result for the definition of “omnipotent” was only one word: “God’. One other quick funny: I had the first Microsoft Word software on my first computer. On a whim I...

    Free will question

    DDoyle00: So much for freedom of choice and free will, I guess. We have “no other choice”? I think that we do. It is one thing to describe God using human terms, it is another thing to imbue God with human characteristics. We can call God whatever we want. Loving, spiteful, vengeful...

    Free will question

    DDoyle00: 1.God was the causation for the universe. 2.The universe and everything in it are the effects of the causation. 3.God knows our future. The issue is with number 3. As long as we continue to discuss God as if God were created in the image and likeness of man, there will be problems...

    I must have misread. I understand and actually agree. I actually agree with this statement.

    Hey defenders of killing unborn children.

    Thanks Tecoyah, Does that mean that when I open a thread I will not see their posts? Sorry to be so ignorant.

    Free will question

    If it is so clear in the Bible, why are there so many sects of both Christianity and Judaism? Your response is a copout because anyone can just say, OK, there are no consequences, read this passage of the Bible or read that one. You based your concept on a “Christian God” and then say “it...

    Hey defenders of killing unborn children.

    In other words, if I use the ignore function on you, then no one can see your posts? You're just "disappeared"? Is there any place I can go to read up on this rather than bother you with questions?

    Hey defenders of killing unborn children.

    tecoyah: I am a bit new here -- what is the "Ignore function"?

    Free will question

    Unless you explain your understanding or definition of the “Christian God”, your statement does not have much meaning. What are ‘his rules’ and what is ‘the price’ and ‘the consequences’? Without addressing these ideas, especially the concept of ‘the Christian God’, what you say is of no help.

    Free will question

    DDoyle00: The problem is that your metaphor doesn’t hold up. A movie is something that is already done. The film is an object and the director is a personification of God. You want to address the concepts of “free will” and “all-knowing God”. The concept of free will is a human concept and...

    Eastern Philosphy/religion

    Lao-tzu ranks right up there with Jesus and Moses as a seminal thinker and teacher. His poetry always brings a smile to my face. Most of the others – Confucius, Sun-tzu, and even Chuang-tzu, are a step down – like Plato and Aristotle, though Chuang-tzu is more like Isaiah to Lao-tzu’s Moses...

    Why do Athiests and other non-god believing people have a problem with religion/god?

    IT2002 No, that would happen if there were no gravity. The law of gravity states that every object attracts every other object with a force proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the separation between the two objects. If you walk off the roof...

    Why do Athiests and other non-god believing people have a problem with religion/god?

    IT2002: First, hope you don’t mind the abbreviation of your name – if you do, let me know. There is a saying that God created man in his won image and likeness and man returned the favor. The problem is that we have all (becaseu of our training) personify God. God is more like gravity...

    Why do Athiests and other non-god believing people have a problem with religion/god?

    Re: Why do Athiests and other non-god believing people have a problem with religion/g This seems like a huge copout. Why not pose those “toughest questions of your life” here? It would make for some stimulating exchanges.

    Divorce

    First, I wish you perspective, peace and serenity during this time. Second, thanks for opening this thread. Finally: WOW! Have you opened an important subject! I am the child of divorced parent. I have siblings who went through that divorce with me. I am a divorced man. I have children...

    Hey defenders of killing unborn children.

    There is research going on now showing that the sperm of a man who is legally drunk can cause serious damage to a fetus if a woman gets impregnated by him. I assume that men should be held as responsible as women and should be jailed for impregnating a woman while intoxicated, correct?
