I need to pray, but this proves there's no one to pray to.

    lets say some god exists, always has....and just for fun, lets assume s/he is really all knowing... that would mean that for all of eternity this being has always known exactly what would happen and could find no reason nor power to alter what s/he always knew... does not sound very almighty to me.... People want a super being who can do anything including totally contradict other aspects of its own being... by saying god can do anything, but already knew what s/he would do even before there was any point in knowing it is a bizzarre mental trap which only leads to the insanity that this very god damns his own creation for being exactly what he eternally knew they would be...by comparison to what s/he always knew was an eternal lie....an ideal s/he always knew had nothing to do with the true reality s/he always knew.

    why could this god not stop this woman from hacking up her baby, simple, he always knew it would happen and of course because he knew it, there was no reason to change it.... and if he could change it, how did he know it? since it would have never happened as he would not have allowed it to happen even before he made anything.... most do not comprehend the paradoxes and sheer idiocy of the god they imaigne existing.... a being whose sole purpose in existance must surely be to find a way to kill itself.

    So what does the title "Christian" mean to you, coz it's an incredibly wide and inclusive term? It evidently means something different than what it means to me, given that I'm against animal sacrifice, along with witch burning, child abuse, indoctrination, and a pile of other stuff.

    Maybe being an unorthodox Christian kinda muddied the waters there

    No offense taken, btw, nor any intended.

    Yes it does. I honestly think many times miscommunication problems we have here would be solved over a bottle of wine, a beach and a setting sun.

    You know, I have to say, since moving to Plano, I have been very pleased with how safe it feels. There are very few murders, BUT there seem to have been quite a few mothers that have killed or seriously harmed their kids here, actually in Texas...I don't know if it is a higher percent down here than other parts of the country, or just becuase Texas is so big....it is so very sad

    Hey, you're the one who likes the idea of God sitting on the pan
    you know why a imperfect god would be ok? because god would have an excuse then. he wouldn't be to blame. but, again, an almighty god is either not good or not existent.

    and if man is set in his domain and god's only watching, there's absolutely no need to pray. it doesn't make a difference if there's a static god who does nothing but watch or if there's no god at all.
