So I'm watching these older folks stuck in the middle of a war praying to their god to stop the bombings. (1 Viewer)

And yet the bombings are not stopping, why not?
 
As my father in law, a WWII combat veteran in the Pacific, once said “there are no atheists in foxholes.”
Why do you care? People seek solace in whatever way they can. Do not mock them.

What? You mean the prayers are not doing anything? I'm shocked! Shocked I tell you. >sarc<
praying for the wrong thing...
Really? And what should they be praying for? Are you praying for the right thing?
Do you ever mock Muslims for doing the same thing? Or are you afraid to do that.
I do. But I do not see Muslims going on about god or praying here.

Yeah, but that claim is also false.

Is it about the emotional comfort mechanism that is prayer, or the belief that prayer will actually do something tangible?

This is Satan's world and he attacks all humans, attempting to break their integrity...especially those who are trying to serve Jehovah...endurance is what they should be praying for...

And you god sits back and does nothing. See, god is useless. A god worth its salt would have dealt with the problem on day 1. Or never allowed it to happen in the first place.

God forces no one to be obedient...
 
Not the issue or the point. God allowed things to happen, with foreknowledge too. So god is incompetent as a deity.
Yes, it is...as long as Satan rules this world, people will be rebellious...Jehovah is allowing time for those who truly desire to remain faithful to God to prove themselves through their integrity...then the end will come and all those who are left will be willing, faithful servants of Jehovah because they know, without a doubt, He has the right to rule mankind, Satan does not...

Your god still allows it and does nothing about it. Like I said, incompetent. Or impotent. Possibly both.

As to your first point maybe so. I can’t prove it and you certainly can’t disprove it.

As to your second who knows what goes on in the minds of a couple million people. And why does it matter?

OP never mention your god. ;)





Speaking of mocking........

According to Reuters, there are about 8000 military personnel who identify as atheists. The Dept. of Defense also recognizes atheism as a choice for a soldier.

Not much I'd wager.
 
Is that a rhetorical question?
Absolutely not.

That post makes zero sense. Satan rules this world even though he does not have the right but your god does have the right and isn't ruling this world?

As my almost father in law now deceased about a week was also a ww2 combat vet in the european theater and an atheist.

Yeah fletch, I'm at home behind a computer screen shaking in my boots just thinking about muslims. Did I not show enough hatred of muslims for your liking?
