Here's a question for you guys that has probably been asked a zillion times. Would you guys really deny God in a situation where death was near? For instance, in the that movie "Frozen" where 3 people are trapped on a ski lift in the blizzard. One guy tries jumping down so he can get help and then breaks both legs and 3 wolves eat him alive. So the other two are faced the possibilities of either freezing to death, or falling and breaking bones then eaten. You would think God may come up in a situation like that.
I think you need to take a closer look at what you've asked and then ask yourself this: Why would an atheist who has had no access to or evidence for a god for their entire life, all of a sudden at death, call out to a god who they have no reason whatsoever to believe exists ?
The fact of the matter is DO, that if
your god exists, then it has denied us! As a matter of fact it has denied you also. It has denied us access to the evidence required to prove its existence. It has denied us access to itself by hiding its being from the very mechanisms(senses) that it created in us to be able to do such a thing. It creates us fully equipped to search for it but denies us from finding it. "Seek and ye shall find"
. What a joke
Actually, it's not funny at all, as the god hypothesis has made our world a delusional and often dangerous place to be.
In your analogy, wouldn't it have been much nicer for a caring
god to cue a nice delicious Elk to wander into the story at this point ? Sure it would have been ! If I were a christian, and one of the two guys left on the lift to watch my friend get eaten while trying to save my life, I would at that moment have either become an atheist or believed that my god hated me......If I were an atheist, it would have soberingly confirmed to me both the validity and intellectual honesty of my without belief in gods position, and the raw and brute power of nature at work.
Be truthful DO, have you seen any hard core sensory evidence for a god anywhere else but in your thoughts ? Have you experienced the physical reality of a deity anywhere else but in your mind ? Can you point at anything or anywhere on this earth and say "look there's a god" other than pointing to the thoughts and opinions of your mind ? .................Truthfully, no you can't.
The world needs to get serious and get honest with itself. The real question we need to ask is:
Will I deny my faculty of reason its rightful place any longer ?
