I LOVE this guy. Seriously.

“He has got to destroy us because we are becoming an affront to him, in every step of the way. We are denying his existence, we’re denying his power. We are slapping him in the face.”

I have come to the conclusion that God is an asshole.

He is indeed a loony one.

How can he be an asshole if he doesn't exist?

God could exist. I simply see no evidence for it.

Flooding the world and killing everyone (minus one family) down to the last man, woman, and child was a dick move. If he decided to firebomb us, we'd be in trouble.

I propose we do a preemptive strike.

To attempt to rid the world of all its wickedness, but we are but sinners and he allows free will.

So he creates people as sinners... and then kills them for being sinners. This guy is a pro.

Yes, it does.

So, would we say God failed in his attempt?

I'll say that. I still believe in God though. He has done great things for me and my family.

Why should God get credit for YOUR hard work and success?

So by this same token, can a man who is not successful in life blame God for his failure?

The Marine Corps gave you tools, and training on how to use those tools. If you didn't stay current on your quals, whose fault is that?

"My Obama, the govt. didn't build this business, I did this."

Oh wait...that's the wrong discussion

God is really in a no-lose position though...if things work out, it's "God has been so good to me", if things don't "God has other plans"

I've been trying to come up with the words to describe a weird thought pattern you see in people of faith...

They will say, "I am saved by grace, not of my own doing" "Few are chosen" "God is so good to me" "there, but for the grace of god, go I" etc.

...but, if you are NOT a person of faith...they seem to say it's because YOU screwed up, you are "hateful atheist" who "turned your back on God"..basically that you are "bad" for not believing.

I mean, simply because we may not have been "chosen", and did not get "grace"...not by our own doing?

What I try to explain it's not so much that I choose not to believe...but I can't. Can't believe it anymore than you could believe the Easter bunny was a real rabbit that delivered eggs, or that Sunday morning cartoons are truly being played out by little people inside the TV.

There are definitely several points that seem contradictory. That is part of the everyday struggle with faith. As far as what His plans are, I have no idea and would never claim to. Maybe we are rats in a maze. Maybe we are an experiment. Hell, we may not even be the first group of people who have occupied Earth. Just because our bible doesn't mention anyone before Adam and Eve doesn't mean that there wasn't anyone. I have no idea and don't believe it makes any difference at all.

How is a lynching amusing? Jesus fucking Christ is quite funny.
