Atheists,(people who don't believe in a God.)?

#1. How do you go day by day living knowing one day you'll die and you'll have nothing to look forward to, just be dead?

#2. What do you believe will happen to you when your dead? Will that just be it?

#3. Do you really think our ancestors were monkeys? (explain why?)

#4. Explain- Evolution? how did apes evolve?

#5.  Are you afraid that you were born in this world to die alone example: you lived a beautiful life in which you built over the years from learning new things helping others out, struggles, having beautiful children building a life for you and your family but then all of what you built was for nothing because once you die that's the end of your life.

#6. Do you believe there are aliens?

#7.  Do you believe there's ghosts?

#8. Do you believe that there is some type of God out there? (Why? Why not?)

#9. Why are you an Atheist?  Why do you NOT believe in God?  Why would you reject God ?

Dara - we don't mock your god; we can't mock the non-existent.  We mock your child like clinging to Bronze Age stories.  I tried to answer as honestly as I could, because I feel bad for you.  Your cult has crippled you emotionally and just the thought of it sends shivers down my spine.  You obviously aren't here to learn anything about Atheism - at every turn you proselytize as much as you can.  Your questions were worded to mock those who have not been successfully indoctrinated to your cult and you show zero respect for honest dialog - so why wouldn't we mock your cult doctrines?

I base my rational belief in the God of the Bible on the fact that I think the resurrection of Jesus Christ can be reasonably thought to be an historical fact. Can't be proved, of course. If that is true then it leads to a reasonable belief in many other things in the Bible about God.

Read this again and think about the contradictions in it. I am trying to be helpful here and not cynical.

I actually could live my life knowing there's no God i choose not to because i look at how beautiful and ugly life could be and it's not just by an "accident."

(a) Where is this "accident" to which you refer? (b) You can't have beauty and/or ugliness without God? Explain.

so when you say my life wouldn't be pointless without 'theistic beliefs' your right it would be i dont want to Just Exist but to live an know the meaning of my life

So, you don't think living a full life, working for good, raising children, traveling and seeing the world, writing poetry, painting, and giving and receiving love is enough for a life to be meaningful? Explain, please.

with that said It is important for me to help others not just rely on God to do all the work for us, otherwise how can we be transformed back into the likeness of God so that we can live with Him forever? =)

There is no forever to look forward to. The universe will apparently expand and grow cold and dead. How will you persist through forever (have you really thought about what forever really is?). Have you looked at what the Christian God is really like without giving Him excuses (He knows best, He has a plan, all is right with Him, etc.)?

God said that He protects those who TRUST Him, and "God causes all things to work together for the good, for those who LOVE Him ... "

Your God is like a parent who is only generous to children who play up to him. If we are to model our lives in the image of God, then that shoddy example is the one fathers should follow, right?

Why do atheist mockers think that God is obligated to protect them from the storms of life, or to make anything good out of them?

We don't believe in God, so we have no expectations of this being.

Look: these atheist mockers try and push it out of their government; they push God out of their schools; they push God out of their lives; and they are desperately trying to push God completely out of society as a whole! And they hypocritically whine and complain when God isn't there!

Could you cite even one complaint or whine, please? Also, your polemics are clearly not aimed at atheists, but to an external audience. They are wasted here.

Sorry, but the atheist only make hypocrites of themselves when they
say that God isn't there!

How? A hypocrite says one thing and then does something contrary or incompatible. Examples, please.

God never rejected the atheist; the atheist continually rejects God!

No, we just disbelieve in a mythological magical sorcerer being.

believing in god is a matter of faith and if you dont believe in God it doesn't mean that god doesn't exist it simply means you dont believe in faith... i know this is not 100% proof but "he who has faith does not need proof.(=

Yes, and the greatest faith comes from believing the most unbelievable thing. Most Christians, however, try to make Christianity conform with science, so they are trying not to have very much to believe. Why not stick to believing the most outrageously anti-intellectual, stupid, batshit crazy thing so you can really maximize your faith?

*You find meaning in life within your life. We can not control the life of others, we can only exercise or control ourselves. To live your life with meaning, give's meaning to your life.

Question: If God is all-knowing, (a) how did he come by that knowledge? And if he really is all-knowing, that is incompatible with free will, isn't it? I mean, how free are you, really if God already knows every good and bad thing you will do? That is predestination, which IS incompatible with free will. Unless, of course, you resort to the typical theist excuse-making: "In God, all things are possible."

The resurrection of Jesus can only be thought to be an historical fact if it is possible in the first place. So, what scientific grounds do you have for it? Or do you have other examples of resurrections to use? Zombies?

As a christian, Dara, can you enlighten me please.

In Leviticus 15:28-30 New International Version - NIV

28.   When she is cleansed from her discharge, she must count off seven days, and after that she will be ceremonially clean. 29. On the eighth day she must take two doves or two young pigeons and bring them to the priest at the entrance to the tent of meeting. 30.   The priest is to sacrifice one for a sin offering and the other for a burn offering. In this way he will make atonement for her before the Lord for the uncleanness of her discharge.

Should I have to buy and erect a tent, to meet the priest, then should I start breeding doves or pigeons (there is a choice) or does the church supply them, by having a breeding programme for doves and/or pigeons for sacrifice (how is this one killed, chopping it's head off, or slitting it's throat.

And the other, for a burnt offering (is this one already dead, or is it gently put into the fire, whilst still alive.)

I will need thirteen pigeons or doves per year. Every woman will need hundreds of birds over her fertile lifetime, this could pose a problem of supply and demand. 

The other question, I have for you, if I am unclean, because I have periods, The Lord, Most omnipotent God of all mankind, the loving one, gave me the ability to have children, and without periods, neither you nor I could not have children. Can you see my dilemma here?

Thank you so much for your input, wisdom and knowledge of the Christian faith and the Christian bible in advance :)

Heres what I don't get:

When she is cleansed from her discharge, she must count off seven days

So that's seven days AFTER the end of a period? Is a woman unclean during her period AND during those seven days? If so, that's a bit longer than a week... Some women will end up spending almost half of their fertile life being unclean!

 

Oh wow, kinda off topic for this thread.... Maybe we should go to a christian forum to ask this sort of thing?

Thanks Archy - I was concerned - It's the Native American women who had the right idea - no shame no sin to be expunged - revered, thought to be more powerful, and would call on the women, for insight, advice and guidance. Not Jews, xians or muslims.

@matt - when a xian comes onto this site - there are questions I really like to ask - this is just one of them. It just makes them look sillier by the minute.
