Mental illness is still mental illness whether you use "God" and "Jesus" or "Oognar the Avacado Lord of the Blurth Dimension of Xloop".

Lollipop165: And this is what I don't understand about religious people (particularly some Christians).

A friend of mine the other day was asking me some honestly good questions about my atheism. So I answered by asking her some questions about her faith. But then she told me the story about how she didn't have gas in her car one day, and she had lost her wallet, and she HAD to get somewhere. She drove up to the gas station, opened the door, and below the car was a $20 bill. It proved to her that there was really a God and he was really looking out for her.

So basically I asked her, what make her so special that God would hand her a twenty but God won't hand other Christians food, shelter, or health? Are they less deserving than you? If not, how can you explain why God won't "hand a twenty" over to 3 year olds dying of malnutrition?

Now, I understand there's plenty of philosophies in Christianity regarding why there is evil in the world, but that is not what I am asking. What I'm asking is, why did she believe that God watching out for her nice, educated, middle class prayers, but not the prayers from people that have much larger issues? Why the fark do people think that God answers their prayers to win a football game but God doesn't answer the prayers of 11 year old Christian rape victims with AIDS in the Congo? The whole concept of "God is with me and he proves it in small ways" is just so damn small minded and selfish.

Faith is one thing, but this whole "proof" business is quite another.


God prefers white people and not starving negroes?

rufus-t-firefly: "I have seen God multiply food more than one time when I was cooking... And I remember spooning out spaghetti or whatever, just praying in the spirit over that, and God just made more and more and more. You know, I've seen oil multiply as I was praying for the sick. I've seen bottles of oil just fill up about a cup a time of oil. But the point is we were promised supernatural provisions."

So, basically, this pastor is saying that she has the same power as Jesus Christ.


Actually, the unending cookpot/cauldron is a celtic religious thing, it's one of the Four Holy Treasures of the Tuatha Dé Danann. biatch isn't a Christian, she's a sorceress.

Way to aim high, God. Slackass.

As an atheist, I have never had as low an opinion of God as people who claim to believe in it. From the stupid things people claim God takes a personal interest in (their own stupid problems, the outcome of sports contests) to God's appearance in things like toast, tree bark and rusty screen doors, they make God sound little better than Donald Trump.

At least I have enough respect for the concept of a higher power that I assume it would have better things to do than watch football or make its image appear on a common household object in some backwater full of ignorant assholes looking to make a quick buck from other ignorant assholes.

interesting how, as mankind's knowledge of the universe and physical laws has increased, belief in an imaginary friend has increasingly become a sign of immaturity or mental imbalance.

Back then:
"God just told me I must sacrifice my only son this very day!"
"Praise the Lourd!!!"

Now:
"God just told me I must sacrifice my only son this very day!"
"Hello, 9-1-1?"

I think this woman has a gas leak in her house... Either that, or she's storing the LSD on the shelf above the cereal again.
