I am just gathering data.
No, I don't think so. You are attempting to throw shit at a wall and hoping that some it sticks. You have asked the same questions before and have ignored the answers because you evidently don't like them. You need someone to tell you that it's okay to be a theist and that you really are a good and decent person.
You have not demonstrated that your religion is based on reality, much less that it does anything that is commonly accepted as “good” for humanity.
You started with these questions:
If a Christian does evil then is Christianity evil? If an athiest does evil then is athiesm evil?
this failed because you, like so many willfully ignorant theists, want to play pretend that atheism is a religion. Atheism is a lack of belief in god/gods, and atheists have various takes on what is considered “good” and “evil”. Christianity claims to know what good and evil are and that there is some absolute magical deity that defines this. Other variants of theism also claim this same thing, and that *their* gods are the arbiters. NO evidence from any of them that they have a real god.
You then proceeded to ignore questions from others, that demonstrated how biased your questions were. Then you played dumb when asked to answer them. You also not defined what evil is, in your pathetically loaded question. Which parts of the bible are you good with, jst? Do you think slavery is evil? To treat women at best as second class citizens is evil? To commit genocide is evil? To kill others for crimes not their own is evil? To kill people for being sorcerers (Exodus 22, with other people to be killed there also, homosexual, gossips, brats, etc, is evil? Then, if you claim that the bible is from some magical source and that this magical source is always right, then you are claiming that this book and god are evil. If not, you are a hypocrite. I do find it pretty funny that of all NGFE’s examples you only addressed the burning people at the stake. [
And please show me where God has ever said this? I can't find it in my Bible anywhere.
I guess the rest of the examples you are good with?
and then we get you trying to dodge the questions again by asking one more of your own, what seems to be an attempt to move the goalposts.
Okay so now I would like to change the question around a little bit.
If a Christian does good, and says it because of his faith, then is Christianity good?
Since Christians can’t agree on what is good, what they claim as good doesn’t make it so. To a Christian, “good” is not defined by anything but their opinion at the time. The Roman Catholic Inquisition made it “good” to harm those who did not obey the church, be they women, Jews, Muslims or non-Catholic Christians. Protestants did the same thing when they harmed Catholics, claiming that it was “good” in their god’s eyes. They used burning at the stake, drowning, pressing to death, stoning, drawing and quartering, all sorts of painful deaths to destroy that which they were sure that their god approved of.
Human actions can be influenced by various things. If an atheist does good, what does this say about religion?
I can do a beneficial thing for my fellow man because I would want to be helped and it makes me feel good to help someone and I know this is the only life anyone has. You can do it because you are afraid of being punished and because you are greedy for heaven. What’s more questionable, doing something for honestly personal reasons of getting and giving help or the selfish reason of getting something only for yourself?
