@ Wynprks - That is interesting. You could say the dog killed the kitten coming from some sort of instinct to kill just for the practice of it too. That is where the line gets really fine.

Lium, one thing I've noticed in almost all of your entries is a general lack of actual content. Instead of addressing the questions people pose or responding to the actual content of other users' messages, you seem to send back condescending responses and telling a lot of people they are incapable of understanding just what it is that only you of all people on this forum seem tounderstand. This is the biggest fallacy in arguing one's point of view, that is, claiming that the other person is an idiot and therefore it's not worth your time to respond with any actual content. This is the worst way to deal with anything in any kind of forum, it doesn't make any one better off, it certainly doesn't make you a better person and it only adds more fire to an already pointless and boring conversation. A lot of atheists on this forum are also annoyingly condescending and smug, but I've found your own entries particularly pugnacious.

Why don't you surprise people by clearly demonstrating an example that shows that the logical paradox of god's omniscience and omnipotence is not important. Or explain just why anyone should suspend their  sense of logic for a mystical/ancient belief system. If you do it without insulting everyone, some people just might actually listen.

Dear Folks:

My favorites from HS:

If god is all powerful can he make 5=4?

If god is all knowing, then why did he not do a better job training people to prevent atheists?

If we have free will, then why did god not disallow the creation of 'I have no choice'?

If god created all things, then why did he create so many types of beetles?

If god is all intelligent, then can he solve the paradox card? "The sentence on the other side of this card is false!' turn it over "Then sentence on the other side of this card is false!"

If god is all powerful, then why did he not create the world to be 14 billion years old? 6000 years VS 14 billion years, same difference?

The following is a bit of guerrilla marketing, but I don't think it qualifies as spam (at least I hope not):

My Name is Dave Kilby (aka Grouchy).


I do a blog at "Grumbles From an Old Grouch", http://grumblesfromanoldgrouch.com about politics, atheism, culture and life in general.


I'd like to extend an invitation to check it out. I especially recommend the posts: The Theory of Evil-ution vs The Mythology of Creationism (pts 1 & 2). They're a common sense, and rather humorous (I hope) takedown of creationism. It's absolutely free, and if I might add, worth every penny.


When you check them out, let me know what you think. Heck, if you like them, tell your friends. I can use all the viewers I can get.

@Zia Dost Muhammad

It's just a humourous diagram, Zia - we don't actually believe in your invisible fairies, or whatever, so we're just making fun of such beliefs.  Don't take it so seriously.

I believe that most, if not all, of us rejected the very concept of gods long before we started making fun of that concept.  Perhaps if you scrutinized your beliefs as much as you scrutinize our satire of your beliefs you would come to reject gods yourself.
