The only way I would ever thank God for anything is if I'm a rapper that wins a Grammy...that's clearly God's work.
Exactly, God always gets the credit for all the good and mans will and Satan get the credit for all things bad. Dont you know the world is so screwed up because god and Satan are at war but god is gonna get him just not know but when the time is right. Thats what christians believe is that messed up or what.

Exactly! and if that ass hole really performs miracles why is he limited to things that can already happen normally? When was the last time you saw an amputee be healed by god? Exactly, yet I hear about god curing cancer all the ******* time!

And seriously who do I thank when I'm committing a sin that kicks ass? I dunno street racing, lying, cheating, stealing or just ******* with people? When im doing unnatural and blasphemous sexual activity in the bedroom do I thank god or satan? Technically he convinced us to eat that ******* apple anyways, god gave me a body, satan gave me a mind.

You guys do know that most of the bible is told in parables and are not to be taken in pure context except for a few of the stories.

Don't read it literally... more like find the meaning of the story.

Exactly! Almost all the problems from the bible stem from there being a god behind it :P

all in all there are some good moral lessons in the bible xD , and a lot as long as we ignore the old testament :P

You guys really fail pretty hard on this "What If I'm wrong." idea where you ask yourselves "What if I'm wrong, if God exists I'm going to hell and if he doesn't I'm no worse off anyway"...

...

That's stupid. Here's why.

There is equal odds that Zeus exists as "God" exists (which is presumably the judeo-christian god Yaweh). There is equal odds that Allah exists, there is equal odds that Thor exists, there is equal odds that Ra, Poseidon, or any other bronze-age belief exists. To cut it down to "God" or "no god" is just idiotic, because if that's the case, what about the hundreds of other gods is it the Judeo-Christian god or nothing? Of course not. Is it Allah or nothing? No way. Odds are exactly the same across the board. The Christian could be wrong about Allah just as well as the jew could be wrong about Zeus.

Yea, but thats looking at things rationally. If christians were rational there wouldn't be any. But great post all the same, I think I may +rep your hate filled trolling bashing innocent interweb goers ass!

Pfft it is just as likely that there is no god! So what's the freaking difference. Pick the wrong god and you are going to burn! Yeah ok then most of us are doomed anyways.

I still try and be a good person not like I am some crazed nazi lover, killing machine. Why should a god care, if they exist, if I believe in him or not if I still try and live a good life?
