Is "God" the cause of war?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Walrus T Jul 4, 2011. 31 Replies

According to the Bible, it's been calculated that "God" killed over 2 million people. How? He burned them, smote them, and plagued them. According to 2 Chr. 21: 14-19, God killed Jehoram by making…Continue

Threat of Atheism

"A doorway to hell? Really? It's saddening that this is how we were and still remain to actually be portrayed as such in a way."

"The thing that would make it an endlessly amusing gigglefest if it didn't invlove the horrific deaths of so many millions, is that in many cases, BOTH warring parties are going to war in the name of the same invisable sky-daddy, conviced that…"

"This assumes the reality of 'god'.  And imbuing this fictional character with real powers seems like no more than an excercise in excusing bad behavior to me.   But of course if you are going to take the christian biblical hisory…"

Dr. del Toro replied to Michael Rose's discussion 'Is "God" the cause of war?'
"I like how you are thinking. People who believe that they will end up in heaven would be way more willing to die than an atheist. The ones who believe they will end up in heaven with virgins all to themselves blow themselves up for it. It's…"

"Agreed, I often ponder why preachers dont mention all the foul actions that their so called "god" allows. I just want to go into a church and ask about it sometimes, what do you think they would say or do? This is an excellent discussion."

"We go to war for resources; land, money, oil, mates, food, water...   God/Gods/Panthenons just act as the "morally justifiable" icing on the big death cake. A nation isn't going to support your war for materials gains.…"

"Although you have a strong, highly researched, valid point, that wasn't the overall idea of this thread. Moreso, I question if through "God's" sadistic acts of tyranny that he drove man to act in such a way. As I commented…"

"However, "God" told Joshua to go to Jericho, thus stating that he put the idea to kill thousands of people into Joshua's head. Without the influence "God," then Joshua never would have done such an act don't you think?"

Michael Rose replied to Michael Rose's discussion 'Is "God" the cause of war?'
"Yes, I remember Deuteronomy 22: 28 - 29. Not a story you heard a lot in church, something they tended not to mention. You're point is valid indeed, and along with that, could you not go as far as to say he amused himself of slaughtering animals…"

Michael Rose replied to Michael Rose's discussion 'Is "God" the cause of war?'
"I am not particularly stating that God caused ants to have wars; however, what I am trying to understand is if "God" could have imprinted his sadist ways on man and thus man taught unto animals. Take for instance dog fights and cock…"

Michael Rose commented on Meghan McWilliams's blog post 'Church has Atheist billboard removed'
"At first glance, I too was insulted by the acts of taking down the billboard? I thought it was going against freedom of religion and wondered why it was allowed to be so. After reading the articles however, it seems as though the church that…"
