Jeff. very good example.
I have an example for you too. If you made this highly sophisticated humanoid.
This humanoid loves you and you loved it.
but this humanoid disobeyed you and did something terrible that it needs to be destroyed by some kind of federal law or something.
And you didn't want that to happen so you gave up something that is the most important in you life(you pick it!) and save this humanoid. Happy ending?
But now problem begins, this humanoid will not stop doing this bad things, so you tell him to stop and he says "no. by the way. who are you? telling me what to do? I will do whatever I want to do" and you tell him "I made you and I had to sacrificed my most precious to save you, just to save you"
And he says "oh ya I don't believe it. by the way if your my creator, prove it. I have my buddy humanoid that just lost his toe, you make it regrow, then I will believe you.  So you did it but he still won't believe.
Here are miracles my lord performed about 2000 years ago and people still did't believe.
1. turning water into wine John 2:1
2. many healings luke 1:32

What if God doesn't want to heal amputees?
Because it has got nothing to do with His plan such as salvation?

You are missing the point of the question, John. 

There is a certian type of xian who attempts to justify his or her god beliefs by claiming that people are miraculously healed of various afflictions by divine intervention.  The afflictions may include cancer, diabetes, coma, heart conditions, tooth decay, halitosis, spastic colon, etc.  We frequently hear anecdotes about how some church group prayed for some guy and the next day he was completely healed. 

But there are several problems with this kind of reasoning.  First, data shows these types of afflictions sometimes "clear up" without any kind of prayers.  It seems to be a natural response or a misdiagnosis.  Second, people of all religions make the same claims.  And last, there is a whole class of ailments that are never, ever cured by prayer or naturally. 

People never regrow lost limbs.  Lost eyes never regrow in the empty sockets.  Retarded people never gain normal mental capacity. Alzheimers and Dementia sufferers never recover.  Old people never rejuvenate. 

This has clear implications about a god that supposedly heals people.  It leaves you only a few conclusions about such a god.

Bad analogy John.  In your little story here, I am not responsible for federal law.  I cannot control federal law.  It is beyond me.  Howeven, in the little story in the bible, your god, yhwh is responsible for the law.  If yhwh is an omnimax god[1], then it made the rules.

Also, If I were to make a "person", I would make it so it could not do terrible things.  And I am just a mortal man of limited power.  So the question is, if yhwh, being omnimax, wanted a man to be obedient, why did he not make it so?


Here are miracles my lord performed about 2000 years ago and people still did't believe.

You act as if we are being petulant about it.  Do you believe the Roman emperor Vespasian performed miracles?  How about Mohammed?  Or Sai Baba of ShirdiWiki?  If not, why not?

John 3 16,

JeffPT wrote a post that contained a clear point, and various questions for you.

Does he deserve having his point understood and his questions answered before you go on to your own point?

It looks to me like you either:

1) did not read his post
2) did not understand his point.

Advice: When responding to someone, take the time to first paraphrase her or his points and questions to confirm that you understood what they tried to get across to you. This will save you a lot of time and effort if it is clear you did not undersand what it is they were trying to convey.
You believe evolution and there is no evidence for that. Where is the fossil record of a half man half ape. I've only ever heard about it in reading.

Bad analogy.  According to scripture, the humanoid disobeyed god and needs to be destroyed by god's own law, not someone else's.

There's also a third option that skeptics will often point out to believers and that believers constantly attempt to rationalize away: if the human race became "broken" after Adam and Eve at the fruit, why didn't this omnipotent, omnibenevolent being just fix what was broken and correct the malfunction so that it wouldn't happen again?  Indeed, why even create the opportunity for the species to break itself in the first place?

Some will believe some won't. It is kind sad.
You do not have to believe if you choose not to. History tells people has been searching for hard evidence and proof that God exists or not. However no one really came up with an answer with 100% evidence on either case. Because God created us that way, we were unable and we will never be.
Only through the Words of God and His Holy Spirit. You do not see the wind but you believe it exits.
Because you feel it.
I am sorry for not answering all your questions. but please remember Jesus died for you!.
2000 years ago my Lord said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do. “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. (matthew 11:25-27)

Funny how an all-powerful being that loves us (but wil torture us forever if we don't follow him) can't or won't demostrate that he exists.  It's just what we would expect if he didn't exist at all.

That's just another way of saying you're going to avoid the arguments.   Would Jesus approve of that?  By your own worldview, you are abandoning these people to eternal torment because you're unable/unwilling to deal with them.  WWJD?
Being a Christian, I've made my decision. That decision offers no compromise; therefore, I'm closed to anything else.

John 3 16,

When you became a member you agreed to a set of rules.  Those rules include not preaching.  By not answering our questions, avoiding our points, and quoting scripture at us, you are preaching.  You indicate that you are done here, which, at this point, is entirely up to you.  However, if it turns out you are going to return, you should stop preaching and be more engaging. 

Regards,
Screwtape

He was actually muted by me, and instructed to read the rules. When he read them, demonstrated he understood what was expected, apologized and committed to not transgress any longer, I unmuted him and he started posting in this thread.

We'll know them by their fruits, I guess. Dishonest, disrespectful, ignorant, self-righteous; I can't think of any further way this guy could have so embrassed himself.

Why do some theist show up, promptly piss all over their own god to glorify themselves, then disingenously cop-out?

Jeff. very good example.

Thank you for the compliment.  Care to answer my questions? 

I have an example for you too. If you made this highly sophisticated humanoid.
This humanoid loves you and you loved it.
but this humanoid disobeyed you and did something terrible that it needs to be destroyed by some kind of federal law or something.
And you didn't want that to happen so you gave up something that is the most important in you life(you pick it!) and save this humanoid. Happy ending?
But now problem begins, this humanoid will not stop doing this bad things, so you tell him to stop and he says "no. by the way. who are you? telling me what to do? I will do whatever I want to do" and you tell him "I made you and I had to sacrificed my most precious to save you, just to save you"
And he says "oh ya I don't believe it. by the way if your my creator, prove it. I have my buddy humanoid that just lost his toe, you make it regrow, then I will believe you.  So you did it but he still won't believe.

Let me just sum this up by saying this... If you think, for one second, I would have done things similarly to the way your God supposedly did them in this little speech here, then you are out of your freaking mind.   There are so many problems with this example that I don't even know where to start. 

Here are miracles my lord performed about 2000 years ago and people still did't believe.
Snip for brevity.

You forget, I don't think the bible is true.  BUT you're in luck!  If you can prove, (solid evidence here) with an outside source, that Jesus actually did ANY of the miracles you say here, then you will have a captive audience, and I will take you seriously.  Otherwise, it's leprechauns and blue sky and I have no reason to believe a word of it.  And neither should you.  In fact, you should be embarrassed by it.

There have been many religions throughout history that hinge their beliefs on so called miracles.  Take heart in knowing that I don't believe them either.  But do you?  And if you don't, ask yourself why that is.  When you answer that question, please know that I apply that same standard to those of YOUR religion.  Can you do the same? 

I am just servant of my God proclaiming His words.

It is quite possible that you are a servant of a fictitious, mythological being.  If you think that is so outlandishly silly, then I ask you to ponder this...  Throughout history, millions and billions of people have believed in gods that were different than yours.  If you are right, then that makes ALLLLLL of those people wrong, and also makes THEM servants of fictitious, mythological beings.  In other words, believing in fictitious, mythological beings is done ALL the time, and has been done for thousands of years.  Now, either you personally have stumbled onto the actual truth of the universe, or you personally are doing exactly what millions and billions of people have done before you.  Does it seem outlandishly silly now?   I didn't think so. 

Some will believe some won't. It is kind sad.

Actually, if I'm wrong, at least I can say I was being honest with myself.  If you're wrong, then you've lived your life in pursuit of something that is nothing more than 2000 years of horse shit.  That would be WAY more sad.   

You do not have to believe if you choose not to. History tells people has been searching for hard evidence and proof that God exists or not. However no one really came up with an answer with 100% evidence on either case.

You can't prove something DOESN'T exist, but you can prove that something DOES exist.  The fact that you haven't come up with hard evidence is your problem. 

You do not see the wind but you believe it exits.  Because you feel it.

Yes, and we can test it, and verify it, and speak intelligently on it.  None of which you can do with God. 

I am sorry for not answering all your questions. but please remember Jesus died for you!.

/gigglesnort.  No dude.  He didn't. That's a whole different argument.  If the story was true (which it's not), then Jesus never died.  He just had a bad day or so, then changed his home address from earth to heaven.  No sacrifice at all. 

2000 years ago my Lord said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do. “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. (matthew 11:25-27)

Never happened.

I think my job is finished here.
Thank you for listening.

Where is you anger coming from?
Are you sensing your eternal comdemnation?
You can be angry all you want but the truth will not change "God does not have to heal amputees" and "He does not want to answer your questions"
Because he is mad at you :) :) :) :)

Where is you anger coming from?

Where did you see anger?  I was basically alluding to the fact that you had nothing new, original or insightful to say here. That's what I meant by low hanging fruit.  You are nowhere near the intellectual equal of someone like Truth OT, or some of the other theists we've had in the past.  While they are still wrong in believing in God, they do a way better job of arguing their points.  It's not anger, I just wanted more of a challenge.  I'm sorry if you find that offensive, but after being around this website almost... what... 2 years now, I think of people like you as being a little unworthy of responding to, but I let myself get sucked in anyway.  It's not personal, you're just not good at defending your position, and when things got rough, you ran. It happens all the time.  /shrug. 

I know that probably comes off as arrogant and egotistical, but it's simply the truth; and I think everyone here who's been here a while probably knows it.  You're a person, with opinions and feelings, and in that I respect you and your right to your opinions and feelings, but your arguments were awful.  That's where the "low hanging fruit" comment comes from.  You don't belong on a site like this. 

Are you sensing your eternal comdemnation?
You can be angry all you want but the truth will not change "God does not have to heal amputees" and "He does not want to answer your questions"
Because he is mad at you :) :) :) :)

I rest my case.

Where is you anger coming from?

Where did you see anger?  I was basically alluding to the fact that you had nothing new, original or insightful to say here. That's what I meant by low hanging fruit.  You are nowhere near the intellectual equal of someone like Truth OT, or some of the other theists we've had in the past.  While they are still wrong in believing in God, they do a way better job of arguing their points.  It's not anger, I just wanted more of a challenge.  I'm sorry if you find that offensive, but after being around this website almost... what... 2 years now, I think of people like you as being a little unworthy of responding to, but I let myself get sucked in anyway.  It's not personal, you're just not good at defending your position, and when things got rough, you ran. It happens all the time.  /shrug. 

I know that probably comes off as arrogant and egotistical, but it's simply the truth; and I think everyone here who's been here a while probably knows it.  You're a person, with opinions and feelings, and in that I respect you and your right to your opinions and feelings, but your arguments were awful.  That's where the "low hanging fruit" comment comes from.  You don't belong on a site like this. 

Are you sensing your eternal comdemnation?
You can be angry all you want but the truth will not change "God does not have to heal amputees" and "He does not want to answer your questions"
Because he is mad at you :) :) :) :)

I rest my case.
ok

Well, My anger is a response to your preaching and your rudeness.

What eternal condemnation?  We all die, and all the available evidence indicates that no one comes back to life.  There is no condemnation in the grave.

If your imaginary friend is mad at Me, kindly tell it to come deal with Me right now.  Shall we say... Sometime before midnight tonight, Central Daylight Time?

John 3 16, would you be willing to answer a few questions?

First; in your own words, could you define the term "atheist"?  What do you think it means to be an atheist?

Do you think atheists are "angry" at god?  If so, for what reason(s)?

Do you think atheists "know in their hearts" that god exists?  If so, why would they deny this?  If you think it is related to anger, why would denial be the usual course of action?

Do you honestly think that by quoting the bible, that it will strike a nerve in the heart of those atheists?  If so, to what effect?


After you get those, I'd like to ask a few more questions.

^^^ I can't hate an imaginary God any more than Christians can hate Zuess or Mercury,,,,,,because as a Christian views these gods imaginary,I view their god the same way.

 The morons who speak for their imaginary friend are an entirely differnt matter.

You are truly a sick person, John.  You actually smile at the thought of your pretend god punishing Me for Eternity.

You are all the reason I will ever need to reject Christianity.

(By the way, Biblegod is again a no-show.  I'm beginning to think it doesn't exist, or something.  ;D  I guess this means I get to keep the Universe for another week.)

I am sorry Astro you are just a little girl after all.
My smiling faces were to cover my anger. look at those people calling me low hanging fruit, prick, coward......
just proclaiming my God's word. You don't know me.
I don't want to be anybody's enemy except "the Devil"
So please calm down. Your mama's worried about you.
