How about we try not to fuck up every thread about someone's faith, especially when they're not asking for a debate? I don't give a shit what you believe or don't believe, but I do care when you piss on other people's ideas especially when they were being sincere.

Just repped your post, but referenced how you responded w/o swearing! Giddamn, my language must be really bad if I don't consider f*ck and sh!t as swears!

Boo hoo. I'm a little tired of people talking about miracle this and miracle that when its a simple medical misdiagnosis or some such thing. I am sure that people sincerely think that God is personally influencing their lives for some reason but I've never gotten it. Fifty African kids probably starved to death during her operation, but none of their families are going to post here.

Today is the anniversary of my moms death, sure as hell no miracle came for her. She suffered with cancer for years and was misdiagnosed far too long. God had nothing to do with it - cancer is a naturally occuring phenomenon, she smoked, and the doctors she saw were unable to find anything with 1970s technology. End of story.

This smacks of "God exists for person A, but not for person B (unless you acknowledge that either person B deserved this, or insert God Works In Mysterious Ways Clause Here).

You all are going to believe what you want, and that's great, but really, this whole "miracle" thing is crap.

Other than that, Merry Christmas!

-sincerely,

Scrooge

I get exactly where you are coming from CWG. Those types of thoughts are exactly what run through my mind.

But i don't mind pushing those aside and just saying, "good for you". I have to do it everyday.

I do the same thing myself, it's a requirement of society and helps soften the blow that we are actually on our own here. It's comforting for people to think that there's a benevolent master figure that can intercede on our behalf if we follow the rules.

CWG mom died because of natural selection. It must suck for you to believe she is nothing but dust. At least when I believe in God I can at least have some sort of comfort even if it delusional.

Scrooge back at ya.

Happy holiday I mean.

I doubt it. It's called coming to terms with reality.

Why don't you sponsor one or two of the remaining billion African kids who didn't die during this woman's operation in remembrance of your mother then? Because your posts in this thread amount to pissing into the wind.
