Religious people can ascribe anything good to God, but conveniently ignore all the bad. This can only be done through delusion.

Here is a good example of how Religious people can ascribe anything to God:

God was behind Big Bang, universe no accident: Pope

“In the beauty of the world, in its mystery, in its greatness and in its rationality … we can only let ourselves be guided toward God, creator of heaven and earth,” he said.

Note how the Pope completely ignores all suffering, disease, disaster (hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes, etc.), famine, etc. in making this statement. If a god created beautiful things, he also created every repulsive thing as well. Why did he create 10,000 diseases? But the Pope conveniently ignores reality to make his statement.

Of course there is no evidence for God, no evidence that a god created anything, and the Bible is consistently wrong about every aspect of creation it mentions. There is also the fact that most of what the Bible contains – Noah’s ark, the garden of Eden, Jesus’s resurrection, etc. – is pure myth.

And there is the fact that the Pope has never read the Bible:

Pretty safe to say the Pope is completely wrong about the creation of the universe.

    So what is the Bible wrong about? I would like to hear about these things.

    “So what is the Bible wrong about?” asked Boz
    Genesis, A&E, The Ark, for starters.

    I’m sure you missed this, Boz. Or at least ignored it when it went over your head.

    Mr Q,

    To prove something is wrong, you would need facts and supporting evidence to prove it wrong. The GII site provides none of this. You might check http://gii.josiahconcept.org/ to see the fallaciousness of GII.

    Well, let’s look at the facts of the Ark and A&E, for starters. Fact, they are myths, stories re-told over the ages.

    A&E – Man was not made by god, woman was not created from a man’s spare rib. Ask yourself, did Adam and Eve have belly buttons, was Adam circumcised? When were they created…6000 years ago?

    ARK – no world-wide flood (numerous massive regional floods have taken place over the ages), no herding of animal pairs for the ark. If you include all of the parasites (tapeworms, flukes, fleas, etc), then it must have been one sickly boat ride. Could a small human crew feed all those animal mouths and shovel all that shit? What about the carnivores…what did they eat?
    You only need a small dose of common sense to see all the holes in these stories, facts are optional here.

    The pope knowingly aids and abets rapist pedophiles, incites the meek, discourages the use of condoms in Africa, and condemns an entire demographic based on sexual preference; I have no qualms believing that he has read and sincerely believes the bible.

    Mr Q,

    After you read the link below try again. The fact you do not understand does not prove the Bible is in error.

    http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/wic.html

    http://creationwiki.org/Noah%27s_ark

    Doc,
    Which link? Creationwiki?..LOL. A great source, NOT. And you call yourself a Doc? Throw your bible away and heal thyself, Doc.

    So you cannot provide any evidence and thats fine.

    If anyone here is willing to provide evidence of Bible errors with proof, I would be interested at looking at such errors.

    I really do not desire to play one-ups-manship with anyone here.

    Frankly considering the time line of writing and numerous authors I have been amazed at the accuracy.

    Many devout atheist have torn into the Bible and become believers. Its the power of God’s Word that intimidates so many. It has never been proven false.

    If the ridiculousness called religion was accurate, Yahweh would be responsible for nothing other than initial creation, miracles, and answered prayers; the majority of which are grossly selfish and casted by egotistical hysterical hypocrites. If the courage to think for one’s self does not exist, it also will be unavailable when needed to own the disgusting atrocities committed by the thing any given theist decides to worship; chalk this phenomenon up to spinelessness and let dilution concentrate solely on excusing stupidity.

    Dilution? Would you be referencing the diluting of an existing chemical or reducing the earnings per share of stock?

    I think you are looking for delusion and you seem to be firmly within the grasp.

    Disproving something that isnt real is unrealistic.
    Do unicorns exist? Can you prove they do not?
    Can you prove that Hogwarts is not a real school for witches and wizards?
    Proving that Noah didnt build an ark capable of carrying 2 of everything isnt possible. But do you have any supporting evidence that he did build it? The bible doesnt count as evidence otherwise Hogwarts and unicorns are real too.

    HUMBLE YOURSELF BEFORE GOD
    WE ALL NEED SALVATION

    How come you can’t publish my thoughts and “TRUTHS”

    This is from you…you say,
    Note how the Pope completely ignores all suffering, disease, disaster (hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes, etc.), famine, etc.
    Mine notiuce how when a person tried to shoot him he firs went to forgive him. what would you do?

    In the 60s when the Russins formed a very large amarda of war ships to inatilate the Americans the Pope asked ALL Catholice and christians world wide to get o n their knees and pray that God would divert the amarda. Soon after this happened the Russian amarda turned back and as the news paper of America told “for no reason”…what would you do? (true human relations).

    in making this statement. If a god created beautiful things, he also created every repulsive thing as well.
    Have you never seen or heard of selective species for instance the “Lioger” created from a Tiger and a Lion. Oh yes man kind did this even not knowing what would happen. If a man can do this then a GOD who created mankind so you say could do much greater don’t you think? I guess you would agree.

    Why did he create 10,000 diseases? But the Pope conveniently ignores reality to make his statement.
    Mmmmmmm interesting that you also don’t say how many $100,000,000, are going to help the poor or don’t youhave any more than to say words or ….how much time effort and money do you give to the poor. Oh yes …or are you a hipocrit!

    Of course there is no evidence for God, no evidence that a god created anything

    God also says that there will always be the blind and Jesus tells of just HOW BLIND it is in the eyes of those who can see yet NOT see. They are the real blind ones.

    But Ican only say i will pray for your health, love, joy, and encourage others to love which is what we are told to do.
    God bless you brother.
