Theists believe the bible is true which means all the vengeance meted out by God resulting in death and suffering is true.

On the other hand Agnostics and some Atheists say if a God created the universe he is/was not responsable for what has happened on earth.

All that violence , cruelty , injustice to millions is entirely the result of man's actions.

Simply said non-believers see God , if he exists , in a much more kindly light than believers. Quite a paradox !

That does seem to be true. I'm an atheist, but not worried if I'm wrong as i don't believe I've done anything evil enough to be punished for. If my lack of worship is a major problem, then i don't want to spend eternity with a god that egotistical anyway

I don't. He was a monster!
I am an atheist and I don't see any gods whatsoever, good or bad, because they don't exist.

Can't we stop this tiresome dancing on the heads of pins please ?
Mikey, why do you keep talking about angels dancing on the heads of pins - Thomas Aquinas is long dead - and why do you keep asking people to stop talking about religion, God, etc? This is R&S. It's where people talk about such things.

How can he be a monster if he doesn't exist ?

How can you ask the question if he doesn't exist?
naomi ...If people want to discuss religion on here, there are much more deserving areas, than all this tiresome drivel.

Such as.... the Pope says that he is in no position to judge homosexuals but still insists that they don't actually do anything.

A senior Bishop is Scotland has "apologised" for decades of physical and sexual abuse of children at a Catholic School. Well, that's OK then.

In Algeria people have publicly eaten lunch during Ramadam as a protest against people who eat during Ramadam ( work that one out if you can )

These are just three important religious topics that I would welcome debate about, but all we seem to do on this section of AB is go over the same ground time after time, nitpicking. We are going round and round in circles, chasing those angels. Its like blo0dy Pseuds Corner.
I'm with naomi here, well in part I suppose. You obviously don't believe in god, so I am not sure what the point was of asking your original question ?
Sorry...last post aimed at modeller.
Mikey, why don't you post the questions then - and allow other people to post questions and answers about things that interest them. You don't have to join in with things that don't interest you - but I'm sure you'd get some interesting answers to those questions you've raised.
Perhaps I might naomi, but I shall probably do so in the News section.
Mikey, what's the point of putting it in news if you're fed up with the same discussions here? I thought you wanted a change.
Question Author
mickey I agree with Naomi you have 3 valid R&S questions why not post them ? You can never gauge how many answers you are going to get or how many will go off at a tangent and/or argue with each other.
Sometimes it's a bit like ChatterBank but that doesn't really matter it's all good for discussion.
//On the other hand Agnostics and some Atheists say if a God created the universe he is/was not responsable for what has happened on earth. //

How can you say that modeller? IF God is omnipotent/perfect and created all, he IS responsible for all the misery.

Theists just choose to ignore the negatives parts of the ecclesiastical teachings and shift the blame to Men's independent thoughts. How can any deity be kinder than the followers think when he practiced cruel tricks like in Genesis22.

wildwood // How can any deity be kinder than the followers think when he practiced cruel tricks like in Genesis22. //
He's NOT kinder than his Followers think ! They believe ( the theists ) he did all that misery ,as you describe it.

It's the Atheists who don't believe he did it, because the God of the bible doesn't exist. // All that violence , cruelty , injustice to millions is entirely the result of man's actions. NOT an imaginary God . // That's the paradox
The sad fact is the religious believe it – and still say he’s good! I have to question their principles.
I dont believe in any God but if there was such a thing, I would hope he wasn't so disgustingly vile and evil as to cause so much unhappiness, death and suffering.
