    The Facebook comments are pleading for god to intervene, but god will not intervene because he could not care less about human beings.

      Odd. How can something that doesn’t exist care about or be indifferent to anything? I also find your contradictory anger at and hatred of a supposedly non-existent God interesting, and rather characteristic of “atheists” in my experience.

        I say that god doesn’t care about human beings for the same reason why I say that god doesn’t cut real estate deals with Middle Eastern tribes and god doesn’t perform miracles. A being that doesn’t exist can do none of those things. And of course I don’t feel “anger” or “hatred” toward “god”; that would be absurd. As Christopher Hitchens points out in discussing the Fritzl case in Austria, a god that listens to prayers or intervenes to halt human suffering clearly does not exist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEbohW9hOVw

          Real estate deals in the Middle East? Solstice, you are a gift that keeps on giving. Other than your hero Hitchens I’ve rarely seen such shallow, simplistic non-thinking about religion. I don’t need to say anything; you condemn gnu atheism out of your own keyboard.

            Isn’t that cute: A grown adult adherent of a flesh-eating, blood-drinking, Middle Easter cult of human sacrifice in the 21st century accuses “gnu” atheists of shallowness and “simplistic non-thinking about religion” for daring to despise his bizarre cult’s psychotic and psychopathic claims about the nature of reality.

            You just never learned the first rule of holes did you? Your characterization of Christianity doesn’t even rise to the level of straw man. It is simply the logical equivalent of “Nyah nyah.” And I’m immature?

    Did God tell you that? Hey maybe it was the other guy just stirring up S*it.
