Why am I here?

I get accused of making posts in christian forums that reflect my atheist stance because I’m really there looking for god. That my attacking their beliefs is really down to my unmet need for god’s love.

Why do I feel the need to make posts in opposition camps about religion? I’m not sure. It started with a letter to my local paper when I was 15 about the requirement for schools to hold a religious assembly every day, something I believe they are still required to do. Some replies were, “One only has to look at the flowers and the trees to know there is a god” and another reader blamed my lack of belief on “All the shameful sex and violence we see on TV”.

The internet has really opened up the debate and is bringing atheists together and channeling the evidence in ways that were not possible before. Organised faith has its wealth, heirachy, media spin and hype. Religion is big business. Look at the catholic church. What about the “please donate now” pastors?

So why do I challenge their comfort zones? Possibly because I want to develop my challenging skills, to get them to look at things from a different angle, I’m not sure.

It scares me that there are adults out there who believe in Adam, Eve and a talking snake, that a God made everything and listens to our prayers before deciding to ignore them.

What do YOU think?

    What a mess! Looks to me like atheism is BIG BUCKS and BIG POWER compared to religion my friend! You look at the vast networks of TV and radio, and the few Christian channels there are in comparison. I thought you said you were open minded and intelligent, yet you cannot see this?? Your stock is plummeting. You think you are smarter than you are. Why you are here, and why you think you are here are two different things no doubt.

    I do not get scared by your ignorance Yigotto. I marvel at it. God is my Rock and my Salvation, who shall I fear? I pray even in the face of death at the hands of God haters such as yourself, that I may have the peace of Stephen.

    It is I who should be more scared that you claim a electrically enhanced cell as your first father. I claim the Creator of all, who rules in the heavens and soon upon the earth as my first father, for it is He who made Adam with all the equipment that your cell could NEVER in a trillion years acquire – yet in your amazing faith, you have more faith in a cell than in the living God who made all things…. by the way, that cell you believe in has innumerable layers of atoms and such in its construction, so who made those photons, neutrons, and quarks???

    We live up to expectations Yigotto. You may live up to the expectations of your furthest ancestor and I shall live up to the expectations of mine. It is more than a joke, my friend, it is the reality. Your morality crumbles and your integrity fades because you have fancied to stand upon something that cannot hold water and makes no demands of sacrifice of self in service to others.

  2. Wow , that is something.

    If so,….he is going to be the major influencer of Christianity ,
    apart from Jesus himself.

    Praise the Lord !!!

    You know, I believe it is almost unanimous that we can just start calling you Saul. Well, I mean despite the fact that you have no knowledge of what the Bible really says other than what you’ve heard and read. Other than this, you really are Saul.

Speak Your Mind
