On 3-Feb-07 you wrote:

"You were careful not to call ME those names, yet you are suggesting that because I call myself a Christian, then I fall into this category. Why do you lump us all together? Is that fair? ..." etc, etc.

If the cap fits then wear it, else please give a rational explanation for how you can reconcile the Epicurean Paradox quoted by Loralei on 4-Feb-07 with your belief in the existence of an omnipotent, omniscient and a perfectly good, altruistic unconditionally loving God, who either causes or permits evil to exist in the world.

If you cannot do this then I respectfully suggest that you are like your fellow Christians who are driven by emotions to believe what feels good to you rather than what makes sense.

Why do your beliefs feel good? Probably, because you have been socialized into them and they most likely meet your need to feel that there is a benevolent all loving, all powerful, all knowing Divine Father looking after your interests in return for your homage, worship, compliance, etc. It also feels good to belong to a group who reinforce what you want to believe. Rationality and Christianity is a contradiction in terms. This is why I used the adjectives that I did (and do) in regard to Christian beliefs.

Feel free to show me how I am in error in this regard, if you can. It will be a first for me after many years of asking Christians to do this, if you do.

Don't worry if you can't. Christian theologians can't either - so you are in good company.

Why can't this Christian and Epicurean paradox be explained rationally and logically? Because no one can make sense out of nonsense.

Of course the explanation that no one can understand the mind of God therefore we don't need to explain Christian beliefs rationally, is further nonsense. If that argument held water then why not believe that all the scriptures claiming divine authorship are the absolute truth? So why pick the bible out of so many as being the only authentic scripture? Because you were socialized into Christian beliefs in so many subtle and gross ways as a child and ever since. That's why. It feels good to believe in the faith of our fathers. Why else do those born in a Hindu country become Hindus and those in an Islamic country become Muslims, etc? Claiming that the Bible is the word of God because it says so in it and therefore confirms its absolute truth, is both illogical and downright stupid.

Of course some Christians ignore the Bible and just pray to Jesus, get all warm and fuzzy all over, claim to hear his voice speaking personally to them, even claiming to meet him in NDe's and then claim that this authenticates their Christian beliefs that are fuzzy and unquestioned by them at best. It is this unquestioning nature of Christians and those of other theistic religions that leads me to believe in their lack of intelligence.

Again if the cap fits ... ... . If not please explain. That is a "fair"(your word) offer, I believe.

PS If you feel angry or threatened by my posts do yourself a huge favor and ask yourself why!!

Perhaps it is because there are so many holes in the rotting fabric of your Christian beliefs and you either consciously or unconsciously know it!

Do yourself another favor and don't shoot the messenger!!!

With respect ...

Oh, that one's easy.

Dumb old Epicurean paradox.

What is more troubling is the Super Bowl Paradox.

What kind of God would allow the Super Bowl XLI to occur as it did?

Is this the end of the covenant between man and God? Will there ever again be another rainbow?

For answers to these and many other questions send one carton of American Spirit (Menthol) Cigarettes and a self-addressed stamped envelop to PO box 666, Bellvue, WA, 98666.
