If there is a god, why does he make people so stupid that they cannot understand simple concepts, such as:

We care about others because our brains have evolved the ability to empathize.
Fittest does not mean strongest. It also means being able to convince others to cooperate, share resources, and provide emotional support.
Love is important whether or not there are jealous and vengeful gods.
Memories do not depend on religious belief, although building pyramids and temples can ensure name recognition for ages.



So empathy and love are a product of evolution? What nonsense.

We do live like the animals we are. Sheesh. I thought at least that would be obvious to you.

As for the atheists on the religion forum, half of the threads started by deists are aimed at atheists. Without us, there would be no religion forum. It would wither from boredom.

You get more of a "small tinge of amusement" from our "knee-jerk" reaction as you call it. You need it. you feed off it. Thats why you searched us out by yelling "Hey Atheist" then follow it with an insult "your life is pointless" Then accuse us of "coming out of the wood work" another insult and asking us why were here in the religion forum when you called out to us. "Your life is pointless" is your bait". If you were to really admit something to us you would admit your looking for conflict with atheist but you won't admit that because you haven't admitted it to yourself. The only question I'm asking is why.

Be ye lamps unto thyself.

Really? So you are completely uninhibited and do whatever you feel compelled to do at any moment. I know I don't.

As for you amiga, I'm glad that you have diagnosed my psychiatric state. Actually I'm rarely on this forum so your conclusion that I need conflict is dead wrong. I just happened to see that all that is discussed on this forum is how anyone that believes in God is stupid, and atheists are so smart, yada yada yada. So I decided to put my two cents in. If you don't like it fine, you're welcome to disagree. My thread title was meant to be provoking, it worked didn't it?

John Creasy, why don't you take your thumb out of your mouth so your brain can work better? I've expended all the energy I intend to on your useless thread.

I and you act the way we evolved, for better or worse. Some of us just have a clearer vision of what we are.

And I take it you are one of those who has such clear vision. How humble of you to admit this.

I know for myself, I can't act on many of my instincts as they are against the law. So why can't we just be ourselves and act on our animal instincts?

John Creasy,

I have to admit, I enjoyed reading every one of these posts!

But, I do need to point something out to you and it is the right thing to do. I do not feel you can lump Phoenix into your personal feelings/thoughts, etc., about atheists, non-believers, etc. Phoenix, in my opinion, is one of a kind. You will find her extremely fair in all matters and with all viewpoints. She and I disagree on a lot of things, but she is by far, the fairest I have come across.

And, by the way, I have tried myself pointing out that 'they' think it's ok to call our beliefs, etc. stupid but it's not okay for 'us' to do it to them. Also, as I have pointed out many times, it is not right for any of us to demean or belittle anyone else for what they believe. We don't have to agree, but we surely do not need to reduce ourselves to belittling anyone for anything.

It is not conceit or vanity to know what millions already know.

Have you ever watched animals have sex? You need to gete out of the house once in awhile. It'll do you a world of good.

Actually, I'm not sure if science classifies us as animals. Anybody know that for sure?
