I myself have problems with christians due to illogicallities, the assumption of "good" and "evil", and more or less the social christianity they
seem to bring.
What I mean is, the bible states God is all powerful and all good, and yet in Moses and the Red Sea killed a bunch of people who technically weren't
in the wrong, it was the pharoah and slave drivers, what did the other Egyptians do? Let alone the Noah's Ark having over 99.9% of the world's
animals killed, and basically would have also damaged the natural enviroments for many an animal. (Also would have, unless there were "lucky
survivers" end up in a large amount of inbreeding, which you'd soughta expect from the whole Adam and Eve thing too)
Why is Satan considered evil? I have not heard of the passages of the bible which state how Satan killed 99%+ of the world's population. I'm sorry
for my ignorance on the subject of the bible but it has many-a-flaw. God created the Heaven and The Earth and then thought "I better check my work to
see it's ok. Turn the lights on." (God supposedly creates the Heaven and Earth on the first day, light on the second)
More or less, what constitutes good and evil, do the ends justify the means in christianity? I heard of previously Christians stonned people to death
for practising magic, and yet praise Jesus who turned water into wine, miraculously healed the wounded, and so on and so forth. Why is it Jesus then
is worshiped, just cause of his father?
By the way, I wish to state now, I don't exactly view things personally as "good" and "evil" due to both being part of one's own opinion. Hitler
you see may have thought he was doing good.
I do believe in science much more then I do religion, and to bring up my point, I believe in my own, personal specific religion revolving around
Order, Chaos, and Death... and I wouldn't say it's fact (or even say I believe in it 100%), nor would I try to convince someone to join, nor would I
preach (and from me, that's just explaining it) to people who don't want to hear, but Christians very often seem to do just that.
It can make it very awkward with some people I know. My sister and her ex for example. When I was visiting her for a while a couple months back, they
said grace at the table. That little prayer before dinner, and I felt almost obliged to join in being a guest. I don't feel it's right, for anyone
to do, family or otherwise. To almost force someone to participate in their religion.
I will admit, I poke fun at Christians more then people from most other religions, but Christians seem to put it on themselves. No offence, but if you
come to my door and preach to me about your religion, I'll take a shot at it. If you're on the corner preaching how you can save me from eternal
hellfire, I'll get pissed cause I don't want to hear that. I will admit, not every Christian is like that, and that there are "radical" religions
out there, but if christians would sit down, shut up and stay out of other people's religious lives, then I'm sure alot of non-Christians would sit
down, shut up and not bad mouth Christians as much.
