No, you have exercised your God given free will to deny God. He's still there and loves you anyway.
@Scrooples Correct you are as an atheist I don't believe in any god or gods.
Satan cares not if you believe in him, just as long as you bend, break and crush to his will, you are his.
Your belief that there is no God is not based on reality.
Universal laws exist. Such laws cannot exist without order. And order cannot function without some sort of cohesive design. And design or structure cannot exist without intelligence or purpose.
If you deny any of that, then you also deny the reality that science and physics has given us the opportunity to use these natural occurences to develop technological advances, which require these universal laws to be 100% reliable, true and unchanging.
These modern day inventions are wholly based on what we witness in nature itself. It all has purpose and functionality. Look at a tree. It has roots, which makes them strong and steady in place, which many provide fruit, and if not, their leaves provide oxygen, and those branches provide settings for birds to build nests, leaves and fruits drop and nourish the ground, seasons change, new leaves come forth, and so forth. Look at the intricacy of the human eye. Look at the way our solar system functions and how intrinsically interelated it is to evetything that has and is occuring on earth, our seasons, days, nights, weather, measurements of time, etc. If you do not see the awe inspiring order existing there, then you are a fool.
'Universal laws exist'
Within the universe as we understand it to be.
Nothing in science indicates a god, at all, even slightly. You have to impose it with your own mind.
Actually, blink, many things in science indicate the existence of God. The reason you don't know this is because you refuse to look at any evidence that does not support what you want to be true.
If He isn't real (and He is) when we die, we'll all be worm food. If he is real (and He is) it is going to be really uncomfortable for you when you kneel before Him on Judgement Day and have some "splaining to do as we will ALL have to do.
Universal laws cannot exist without order. You can't accept one and deny the other.
All laws must cohesively function together, or else nothing is certain, which means all of this here is just a wishy washy dream, or as some call it, lunacy.
The architecture of a plane cannot function if all physical laws aren't in play perfectly together. You can't deny this. No one can. And no airline would be in business if there was a great chance that perhaps the design of the wing out of nowhere one day decided to not work in unison with the laws of gravity, motion and air resistance. That design of that wing depends on those laws, and those laws establish and provide order. And vice versa, this order cannot exist without those laws.
This order cannot function if there was no purpose to these laws. All these laws are ultimately there for a reason, as proven by the actual things we see in nature, and our own dependence on them for the things we invent and make or work with.
This whole earth would be unsurvivable, uninhabitable and absolutely useless if all these laws didn't benefit us or provide some sort of purpose to this earth. You can question why we are here, that's fine, but you can't deny that we're meant to be here.
'I want it to be so, so it is so', is not in any science book, and yes, that's all you have that 'indicates a god'. If you had any actual evidence, you'd present it, and you accusing me of what you do, not telling me what I do.
Pascal's Wager is stupid no matter how you try to reword it.
We could both be wrong, and you will be a hell of a lot more shocked than I am to find out that you were wrong.
As I said
in the universe as we understand it, and even there, not always.
You are playing the 'too improbable' game, when the fact is that you have no basis to say that this is not just one of BILLIONS upon BILLIONS of viable possibilities in addition to the TRILLIONS upon TRILLIONS of non-viable ones. Even the entire universe itself follows the concept of self perpetuation against entropy, and a universe that did not would simply cease to be, replaced as far as we know by another one, and another.
And I love how you use earth as an example.
Our one galaxy has 300 billion stars, and just one of those stars has 8 planets orbiting it, one of which we know supports life.
There are 100 billion galaxies.
You want to start doing some math here genius? Even if 0.0001% of stars in our galaxy have planets, and its probably much higher than tat, then that's still 30 million stars with planets. Even if 0.000001% of stars have an orbiting planet that could support life?
That's 300 thousand planets.
Even if 90% of those had no life? You get the idea?

At what age did you choose to be straight? What is sad is you think they are not normal people. Pretty sure your bible teaches about judging others.
Yes Destroyed, my Bible does say something about judging, it says for me to judge righteous judgment. I judge you to be corrupt through and through.
We are born "straight"and as we get older we choose how we're going to act. Some, "burned in their own lust", choose to act on an evil perversion. I guess that includes you.
I don’t think gays are crazy but there are a lot that are just plain old militant and out to cause trouble.
I see businesses that have signs that say they can refuse doing business with anyone for any reason. Is that OK?
I see businesses with gun free zone signs. So if a business has to do business with gays for example, how can another business say they won’t do business with someone that is armed. Seems more than a bit hypocritical. Dont’ you think?
Ever read "My" Bible? I bet you haven't, but you are right. The judgment will belong to God. So you go ahead and justify and glorify this sin. The Bible also said that man will give in to his reprobate mind (Romans 1:28 by the way). It also said that the righteous will be persecuted. All of this was written in the past about the future and what we are living in now. You don't have to believe it, in fact, most will not. My Bible also says Many are called, Few are chosen. Every sinner thinks they are either going to Heaven or that there isn't one. Which one are you Destroyer?
Yep... judge not lest ye budge... followed immediately by not throwing pearls to swines.
Where in the bible doesn it say we cannot judge…oh that’s right you have no idea just that which society and your moronic PC world has told you about it.
This "choosing straightness" is stupid. You don't choose to be straight. Animals aren't gay or straight. They behave as they've been created (or evolved, whatever). No other animal chooses to be straight, and none have this homosexuality issue. There are some who think they're a different race, gender, or whatever, but that doesn't mean people who go along with the program "choose" to be the gender or race they're born. I didn't choose to be a white male. I AM a white male. Homosexuality is a choice, because it's against nature. Now, same sex attraction may exist, but that doesn't mean it's correct to act upon it. I mean, I might be attracted to other women who are not my wife... doesn't mean It's correct to act upon it. I can choose to. Just like gays.
You are influenced by your experiences and what you have been taught. After that yes you do choose, feed and are responsible for your own fantasies and daydreams, a process that takes years if not decades but you ultimately choose the path.
If everyone were homosexual sodomites the species would die, not good or normal.
Pretty sure you have no undamned idea what the Bible teaches about anything.
enoughsEnough, Might wanna do you research, homosexuality has been found in thousands of species.
Some people are not born straight. This is a fact. Accept reality.
Anti-discrimination laws do not cover the 2nd Amendment.
He's an atheist, so most likely he not only knows what's in the Bible, he knows it better than the majority of Christians, even if that's not the case for him, it is for me.
We don't believe your god precisely becuase we know what is in your Bible.
I find it funny that your post is right below another post that tells you what the Bible says...
It's Mathew 7
Homosexual behavior is present in other mammals, which kind of destroys everything you said up until 'against nature' but really, you don't care what's 'against nature' anyway, you care about your theistic ideas.
And it is no longer a question of if people are born gay, we know 'if' and the answer is yes, what we don't know is the 'why', and sitting around expecting them to live loveless celibate lives because you have a problem with them is stupid.
And yes, it's you that has a problem, not a god.
Maybe you can choose, if you can, then you'er a bisexual. I never chose to be straight, I just went from girls have cooties to girls are interesting without a thought.
So people who are depressed, since they are depressed now, it must mean that they were born depressed. Right? I mean that is the logic here. A person is gay, therefore he was born gay.
Do you fools pay any attention to actual science at all? Science has been admitting for years that it doesn't make much sense to simply say people are born gay or straight, and that's the end of it. There is too much evidence pointing to sexual orientation being at least in part a result of one's life experiences. There is also too much evidence that goes against one simply being born gay, as in the cases of identical twins having one straight twin and one gay twin. That makes no sense in the context of homosexuality having anything to do with genetics.
But I get it. Those facts don't help your argument, so you simply ignore them. As usual.
The "it's in nature" argument forgets that animals procreate through rape not love. Do you want that to be legalized? It's natural. So is murder. Animals have been known to kill each other of the same species - dogfights for one. Territorial animals will kill their own species. Do you advocate that to become legal? Some animals eat their young especially if they are considered defective or weak. Want to legalize that for humans? Oh wait... You do advocate abortion just not the eating part.
We are not like animals. We have conscious and moral thought which should keep us from acting like animals, but some of us are born without control over our deviant natures. That doesn't excuse a rapist or murderer because we have laws to obey - animals have not. Are you saying we should live like animals and do anything we please?

There is no gay agenda just like there is no war on Christmas. Just silly nonsense you folks have fallen for.
Only stupid idiots believe what you just said!! STOP with the propaganda,,, we're not buying your fool story!!
You're just a fool
Can you look in the mirror and say 135,000 in damages is silly nonsense? I’m sure the plaintiffs are serious about collecting.
D...Congratulations! You just won one of Gkar's Enceph-Colitis Awards. I give this award to people who show a special ineptitude of thought and logic that just boggles all imagination. Congratulations!
no war on Christmas??? How many Atheist have succeeded in removing nativity scenes from public viewing?.....you're an idiot....and a blind one at that.
Written in 1987, this is the 'gay agenda'. I wish everyone would read it. They stuck by this playbook, and 28 years later have accomplished what they set out to do. Only thing left is the total destruction of anyone that opposes their lifestyle. What does it say about your character, that you would destroy a family because their religious convictions didn't allow them to make you a cake. I don't see how they sleep at night.
Look at all the butt hurt because two people of the same sex won. Down vote all you desire because you are on the wrong side of history. In 20 years people are going to laugh at you.
In 200 years we will all cry at you as you realize the horror of rejecting your creator. In 20thousand years it's still gonna suck to be you, "Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little."
FO and D.
@Destroyer_of_Civilizations, need I say more!
Oh there was a war on Christmas, it lasted about two years, and was over by 2007.
Is your ignorance and stupidity due to genetics, acquired or both?? My guess it is the former, which might also prove my theory of you having a VERY shallow gene pool. And NO lifeguard is needed.
Hey Destroyer, maybe O'bummer care will pay for your craniorectomy, where the doctor takes a crow bar and prys your head out of your backside....

So when nothing horrible happens in the next 10 years, what will be your excuse then?
lol....trolls...go figure... you know the old saying something like " when you dont learn from your history your destined to repeat it" you know yada yada yada...all you have to do is look at al the so called great societies and see that when the normalization of homosexuality was present those socieities ceased to exist...you gotta wonder why these guys hang out on conservative boards...
When nothing horrible happens?
LOL That would be the first time ever.
So, under you assumption, we will be hurricane free?
No major down turns in the market?
No major earth quakes?
I personally believe these will be increased, but I know for certain, destroyer, your assumption has been destroyed.
"So when nothing horrible happens in the next 10 years"
Um...that horror has already happened and has been going on for quite some time now. What, you were expecting something more dramatic like fire from the sky? No, this is far more deadly.
So 2 towers falling in NYC with 3000 dead was nothing to you? The largest loss of money in human history, in 2008, was just an accounting glitch to you? We are facing a murderous group in ISIS and Iran seeking a nuke, and $18 trillion in debt, with a numskull the only thing between destruction and life for America and you ask what could go wrong? Destruction on a Biblical scale is coming. It just depends on if you believe we have sinned or it was just some sort of collection of mistakes due to bad luck. What's more, the end is predicted in a 4000 year old book. What are the odds that that long ago Israel would be in the center of the news? How about people back then predicting that you would be beheaded if you didn't go along with the world's plan?
Look at your statement again and tell me that you really believe that nothing bad will happen in the next 10 years. No one doubts that bad things will happen but you. The real question is will you blame God or the fact that you refuse to repent. The Bible speaks of "As it was in the days of Noah" as a measure of when this will happen. The rainbow was a sign given by God after He just judged the world. Graham was just observing that the rainbow is used by these freaks. The next sentence after Noah was as it was at Lott's time. Why was Lott and his family removed from Sodom again right before Sodom was destroyed? The Bible predicted just what you are saying in 2 Peter 3:3-4.
if you read the bible, people often thought or said things like. what could happen to this great nation, then their nation or city was destroyed. like what was said about the titanic right before it sank on its first voyage. not even god could sink this ship. that is very dangerous thinking and often leads to calamity. I Worry this nation needs to repent or we will see some calamities. I am not a prophet, but that is how it looks to me.
1 Thessalonians 5:1-4New International Version (NIV)
The Day of the Lord
5 Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, 2 for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
4 But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.
I don't know the day or the hour of Christs coming. I don't know just how bad it's gonna get before he does. But the day is coming and when scoffers like yourself proclaim that all is well it's coming.

Maine is number 6 on the list for most patriotic and yet we where the first state to legalize same sex marriage by popular vote and Maine ranks as one of the least religious states. Only 20% of Maine residents go to church weekly.
Population is low. Small groups can make big changes.
Yeah, dumbass. If you look at the criteria used to make this poll, you'd realize that the people of the state have very little to do with the rankings. Just another liberal "spinning" a poll to make it look like something it's not.

So your god is going to smack its own self upside the head with a pound of bacon? Allah is the Arabic word for god, the same god you believe in. Even today’s Christian Arabic Bibles use the word “Allah” for god.

She he has a ISIS flag but supports same sex marriage? Do you even read the nonsense you type before you hit post?
No, but it could bring a tiny bit of comfort during a difficult time, or help to those helping, or generosity for volunteers to get involved, or for others to donate money to assist in care. I bet in your time of need someone prayed for you, and you didn't even know it, and although it didn't solve your problem, it might have helped. So be thankful.
@Destroyer_of_self: Forcing your smarta$$ comments on Christians? For what possible reason? So ‘together’ your thoughts are.

A rainbow is an optical illusion—it does not actually exist in a specific spot in the sky. The appearance of a rainbow depends on where you’re standing and where the sun (or other source of light) is shining.
Rainbows are the result of the refraction and reflection of light. Both refraction and reflection are phenomena that involve a change in a wave’s direction. A refracted wave may appear “bent”, while a reflected wave might seem to “bounce back” from a surface or other wavefront.
