"The Problem of Evil: Why Would a Good God Create Suffering?" by Vexen Crabtree (2002)

Does God exist

Arguments will not make God exist nor not-exist. Either there is a God or there isn't so all your arguments are just games. If there is no God then it's best to find some more useful pursuit (such as long walks). If there is a God so what? Does he/she really want us to worship ? What for ? Do you think worship will save your soul ! I suspect that if God exists then she/he would rather see you going on long walks!

I really don't think this website nor many of its respondants engage in actual deep research to try and support their vague assumptions/ "games." It's amazing I have read several articles and have not seen one quote from the bible through your so seemed logical conclusions about how God exists. And for the "does god exist" post, God is not a he/she becaue if you're going to refer to god at all at least get the jist of it all correct. Also God does not want you to worship him, he wants you to "love him" as you should learn to love everyone else in this world. You would then possibly come to worship him but that kind of reasoning is something I see all over this website, TAKING THINGS OUT OF CONTEXT. REad and learn my friends, ps on a logical note: since/if the existence of God "couldn't be proven" your following options are : A live a life God calls you to and have a wonderful eternal reward in heaven, B don't live your 80 or so years how God calls you to live and spend eternity in Hell, C live a great life God would have called you to and nothing happens, or D live ur 80 years that God didn't call u to live and nothing happens. Logically your chances are best with living the life God has called you to live, but how could you love God just being drawn in by simple logic? well there's no such thing as love at first sight, read!

i see the point you are trying to make but please consider how stupid you are begining to sound. the bible though many do believe in its teachings is fundementaly flawed and contradictory. not to mention a little hard to believe. but before you accuse me of making assumptions like others i have red the bible and almost every translation of the bible admitts to removing the divine name of god ( god is not it's name)yahweh with LORD. despit the fact that there is a warning at the back of the bible sateing quite plainly that if you alter,add or change and of the words in the bible you shall be condemed to the eternal hell etc. etc. so this proves that thoes who follow the bible have turned a bit of a blind eye to some of "gods words" if you will. on a personal note i am not of any particular religion i do not not believe in god or believe in it. i just don't see why if you don't believe in him you have to completly turn you back on the whole "just be civil to people because 9 times out of 10 they will be civil back".Also incase you think i am some sad middle aged guy infront of a computer, i'm merly a sad 13 year old girl with no one my age who understands the phrases or concepts i use to describe my thoughts and feelings.but i'm rambaling now so i shall stop.
