    Augustine didn't prove it, silly. He just stated the same thing. That talking about "who made God" is daft, because God brought time into being and there's no such things as an event before time. The physicists just happened to prove it mathematically.

    Exactly what have I posted in this thread that has made you feel belittled? Or that I'm misrepresenting "your" word.. Or doing it in the name of God?

    I take one post you made in a thread in Light Relief and put it in a place of honour in General for all to see and talk about. It even adds to your post count now. Touchy little fellah aren't you. Just occasionally, I'm not out to get you.

    (Well, actually, most of the time I'm not out to get you. I don't care enough to do that.)

    My favourite God moment is killing the first born sons of Egypt because Pharaoh disobeyed him.

    The Bible is different, it is merely a collections of stories and should not be taken as actual truth.
    Some Christians take the bible literally. Some Muslims don’t take the Koran literally.

    Let me get this right God created Heaven & Earth in 7 days
    And he created light 3 days before he created the sun.

    Never quite understand how the old testament relates to the new, and the Christians I know don't either. The message of Christ is pretty positive but the god of the old testament is a vicious bastard.

    If god is good and almighty and the creator of all things, where did evil come from?

    yeah read both and the new testament has some nasty parts.

    Examples of God personally killing people - RationalWiki

    This Book Documents All the People God Slaughtered in the Bible | Hemant Mehta | Friendly Atheist | Patheos

    Using these estimates, I came up with the following grand totals for the number killed by God and Satan in the Bible:God: Approximately 25 million
    Satan: 60

    Let me get this right God created Heaven & Earth in 7 days. He gave man freedom of choice and the millstone of original sin to make things interesting. After a few attempts at in breeding, murder and then a bit of genocide or at least razing Sodom & Gomorrah. Then copying the great flood in the legend of Gilgamesh, a bit of sea parting and drowning of the Pharaoh's armies freed those nice Israelites who were slaves but are now being unpleasant to unbelievers. One assumes they were children of God he murdered as there weren't any other lineages available.

    God then decides its time to hand over to the younger generation who is all touch feely or maybe not. A bit of holy adultery later and the 'virgin' Mary is with child. Off to Bethlehem and again a bit of Genocide and we have the son of God. Who hangs out with suspected prostitutes and then meets his end instead of a criminal. A bit of Zombie action and he ascends. Since then every mad despot has used God's name to persecute the poor and weak.

    Combine this with the apparent manufacture of the mosquito and God looks to be wanting. Mocking him seems to be a public service.

    Malaria, god and communism have taken more lives than any other causes in history, don't forget the Inquisition & NAZIs were both fervent believers. Stalin at least had the decency to just be a Psychopath.
