Religious people in general are close-minded,uneducated and esspecialy intolerant,that is why over 90% of human wars and atrocities were made for religion.....
God created everything in 6 days. For this to be true, humans and dinosaurs would have to have been living at the same time. Before some of you chime in with something like "one of God's days is many of our years" God is supposed to be omnipotent,omniscient,omnipresent and have made everything, time included, surely it would've known how we would measure it and tell the story accordingly. No explanation for this has or will ever change my mind.
The entire fall from Eden story. God is supposed to be omniscient. why would it create a scenario knowing what would happen and then punish the created for it? If this is true, God is a sadist.
That isn't God, it is just nature, and it is neutral, meaning it doesn't care if you live or die, or what happens to your soul when your physical body perishes, as long as it gets to recycle the material components.
To me God is neutral,understands what you are, and lets you live accordingly. It doesn't need a temple or a shrine or a church because It is everything and It will certainly never need you to kill someone for it or want you to give bits of metal and paper in its name.
over 90% of human wars and atrocities were made for religion…..
The Inquisition,a big atrocity example and the way scientists in the middle ages were killed because their discoveries were against the Church.
And what scientists can you name that were killed because of their discoveries? 'Cause I can only think of one, Giordano Bruno, and even that's a stretch, because he was executed for heresy, not for any "scientific discoveries".
But let's fixate on that stuff and ignore the fact that the Catholic church is responsible for the establishment of the modern systems of hospitals and universities, and been one of the largest patrons of the arts and sciences over the past thousand years, positive innovations that were motivated by religious interests.
Here are some other scientists
and I think that there are others like him
And sciences ? They barely accept scientists nowadays,the war between religion and science continues.
There are not one hundred people in the United States who hate The Catholic Church, but there are millions who hate what they wrongly perceive the Catholic Church to be.
Killing witches for example,based on some primitive criterias and superstitions are also something immature to do it.
Thank you for sharing your opinions,you convinced me a bit but not fully
Speaking of opinions....your opinion means less and less to me as you seem to having your Hamartia rearing it's ugly head quite often of late. Something bothering you?
You just did criticize his, by calling his opinion "uneducated" "close-minded" and "intolerant"

It's interesting since I have been on ATS I have noticed a trend, this trend is not to doubt God first but more to disagree with his way of doing things AND THEN to doubt his existence because of that.?
