Yeah, god is real mysterious and has a plan too.
God does not work in any way.
God works in mysterious ways because if he worked like a normal person, he would not get fired.
Atheists fired the bastard because it seems he does NOTHING. At best, he's hiding in the men's room stall pretending to be taking a dump while jerking off.
He did seem to campaign to keep others from masturbating though, probably to have more privacy in his privy, etc.
Careful, guys. Remember, atheists don't hate God. That is what theists accuse us of when they ask "Why do you hate God?"
We are not "hating god," just pointing out how lame Christianity is for believing in a god that is okay with this.
@Kirk, Unseen does have a point, we need to be very careful not to sound as though we are just mad at god (which would imply existence), rather than thinking he doesn't exist (and in many cases, glad he doesn't). When writing a statement, try to imagine what a theist would assume you're saying. For example, tf you say something like "God is an asshole" they're NOT going to fill in the blanks and think you meant "The fictional character God is portrayed as being an asshole." You've given them no reason to. Your phrasing parses in their context, it won't trip the "i'm not sure what he means by that," so they won't realize they have to do more work to get at your intended meaning. Instead they'll just see, "He's calling the god I love an asshole."
I still took it as mocking theists who say that, as if they think their loving god must have a good reason for allowing the suffering
To me, that's valid as long as it's made clear simultaneously that we think its a fiction, so they can't accuse us of just being mad at god. However, I won't do this before they get obnoxious to me; I try to follow the rule of not attacking Joe Theist out in the public square unless he goes on an out-of-the-blue rant about those damned atheists. "Don't bring one, won't be one," I can claim.
By definition, we can't be mad at god or take him seriously. By definition of the word Atheist, we don't believe there is a god, so how could anyone think we could be mad at it.
Actually, on second thought, the god of the buybull is in fact an asshole character and should be viewed and called out as such. But he is a character, just like Darth Maul, who is also an asshole. But the so-called god character is a pure evil thug with no morals. Who could ever follow a character who lets suffering happen? Who could ever take that as real????
Also, why are you so worried about what the theists think? We don't need to tiptoe around. They are the ones saying we are going to burn in hell forever. So I couldn't really give a crap as to how the theists view us. They are condemning me to tortuous damnation for eternity and all I'm doing is pointing out how absurd their god character is. I say theists can bite me Anyone who believes that evil crap deserves to be mocked !
