Presumably for the same reason a god hates sin and makes it anyway.
God is Truth therefore fact. Why do you hate God?
God made people with free will. He did not make sin. That's like saying that a map maker made you get lost, just because you took the wrong road.
The mapmaker just takes what is there and draws a guide. God made it all, bad analogy.
God doesn't hate, I think you're mixed up the Christian God and the Muslim's Allah.
Sometimes we take the wrong road, because the map maker was not being accurate.
That is an extremely poor comparison.
Either your god created everything and is all knowing or he isn't, pick one.
Atheists are avoiding responsibility for their actions like bratty little children.
Facts are Authored : Facts are Written by God. Here's one just for you: Nothing cannot produce something. That is a Fact. Sin is not a Thing that can be made. Go ahead try to " Make Sin " blinks. Sin and evil are NOT things. They are privations, they can't be measured. All Things can be measured , all privations are merely the absence of things. Take a well made system : A car for example , engineered to within certain precise tolerances. That car is a fact. It is a creation. It can be measured. It is real. Further, its effects can be measured. The displacement of air around it In a wind tunnel, the effect of its inertia . ( this is also how we know God is real). Sin , however, is not measurable. That would be like putting water into the gas tank of that same car, we can measure the parts of the car remaining but not the parts that no longer remain due to the damage. We know sin exists as an uncreated condition because we can measure what remains of the car. But not the lack itself. Thus, God made the Universe, you misuse that product of God , you cause a privation in a perfectly good universe , then claim that God caused that damage. What's more, just as with the Automobile manufacturer, God has provided a service manual for the machine of your life, follow it and you get optimum performance, perform due maintanence, put in the right fuel ( no water In the gas tank !) , and the machine of your life will simply run better. Fail to do so and you get poor performance.
On the contrary, the bratty little children who want to avoid responsibility are the people who just say 'Jesus forgives' and screw the rest of the world and the things I did to harm it.

Faith and reason are at opposite ends of the spectrum.

Shouldn’t a god know to do the right thing without people praying to it.
you can't wash a dirty brain island boy ....... IN GOD WE TRUST ...to the end ...Now tattoo that on Bamas balls and watch him shed tears again !!!
Don't you mean part of a nation branwashed to not believe? Since the birth of our Nation God has been a part of it. Just because some are raised or decide not to believe doesn't change the fact that we are a Christian Nation.
I don't think you are very familiar with brainwashing techniques if you think that people can be brainwashed to "believe" anything. That's the exact opposite of how brainwashing works. When you brainwash somebody, you go through a very long process of instilling doubt, skepticism, and UNBELIEF into them. That's the only way to brainwash a person.
You see, that's why they call it brain WASHING, because you are scrubbing away, washing away, their beliefs. And you do it by introducing arrogance, self-esteem, selfishness, fear, doubt, skepticism, and disbelief. You make them doubt everything they've ever believed, and wipe the slate clean. Then you can slowly introduce subtle concepts that appeal to their fleshly desires, and associate those desires with behaviors that you want to instill.
There are only two concepts in American culture right now that could be considered brainwashing: sexuality and social justice. Both of these things have all the hallmarks of brainwashing. They captivate raw emotional desires, cause people to doubt reality, and then encourage behavior modifications that contradict rationality and reason to achieve political goals.

How did you manage to see the structure of an atom?

Why do Christians always want resort to violence, aren’t you supposed to turn the other cheek?
'Turning the other cheek' is an Hebrew expression that roughly translates in to today's vernacular as "don't let the little things get to you". It has come to mean (largely at the hands of non believers) to mean that Christians should let any and all opposition run right over them without objection. We used to call that being a doormat for Jesus, something I am quite done doing. The correct way to deal with an atheist is found in the expression "shake the dust off your feet": if the atheist doesn't want to hear, then move on to someone who does.
You are terribly misinformed. Some of the most devout warriors on earth are God fearing, good people who do a job. They are getting rid of the scumbags that have grown more and more numerous over the past several decades. They are cops, military men, guys who just don't take crap from losers and people who do not like bullies. The knights during the Crusades were very religious and most felt they were doing the right thing and they were. They were killing Muslims that attacked Jerusalem and Christians that lived in that region, much like what is going on now only it is America or some other military people tired of Islamic BS. I hope you do not expect Christians to turn the other cheek, on the contrary, Christians may do anything and everything to protect the faith.
The Blind don't see. Christ heals the Blind and rescues the lost.
24 years in and recognized God in all things, all the time. You must have your radar tuned to stupid.
That's funny, I'm literally swimming in God. I'll pray for you.
Gay old time?
I never "saw a god" either.....no Navy time.
If you want 'evidence' of god, go look in the mirror and ask yourself what the reason for life is.
There are a million answers, do you know them all?
What is the causer of the first effect?
You are using the word create in an inaccurate way. To create means to bring something into being where nothing previously existed. It is more correct etymologically speaking to say that your parents 'made' you. Create is a function that only God can perform :)
What were they?
and your parents were made in the image of God and if your parents were married the idea of traditional marriage and family came from the bible.
We all go on in eternity.
What if you are wrong? trouble for you.
What if I am wrong? I spent my days serving others over self. Good for you and others.
What have you done for those around you (neighbors)?
Apparently nothing, as you put yourself on an island.
Peace to you, and never stop collecting information.
So will atheist. Just on a different island which will be not so LOL.
Island – this was your wise response to this article?
Since you can’t deny the true meaning of separation of church and state you resort to ignorant comments
What have atheist done besides complain all their days on this earth, all y’all want to devote effort to is removing something y’all look at as Santa Clause
Makes ya look real stupid batting and yelling over a “non existing” being
Would be labeled insane for saying we need to get rid of the boogie man
So when are you taking down those 10 Commandment displays?
‘Those 10 Commandment displays’
All that touting about how you know the Bible, truth is you’re full of hot air. Answer your own question...if you can.
The people to be stoned are people who practice child sacrifice in spite of three prior warnings in Lev.18:21;20:2 and Deut. 12:31. This is sort of like a three warnings and you are out law. So are you saying that child sacrifice is OK and they should not be punished? Or are you a multiculturist who thinks that religious preferences should be tolerated?
Island, do you understand why Jews are circumcised by covenant and Believers are not?
Our church does have science books for kids. We believe all things science directly relate right back to God since he made science to begin with :-)
Science and Christianity are Not at odds with each other. God created science.
Don't you mean Political Science book? Everyone should have the same science or scientific methods, it is only the assumptions and conclusions that differ.
Mine just brings hers to school. Your church does that? Interesting. Too bad they dont learn science the rest of the week, Christians schools do. Should look into them, you can even bring your Bible!
Not one church nor one person would deny you!
My Dad is an electrical engineer. In addition to this, he's also been my science/math tutor, but you'd be fairly surprised to know that he's also been my Sunday School teacher.
Creation isn't in open defiance of science. In most cases, creation and science are united.
The Bible covers many topics. It could easily be a history book, law book, religious book, and even a science book, if you know the verses. The Bible talks about the winds, rain, snow, mountains, sun, moon, rivers, oceans, earth, animals, human condition and mind, and many other thins in this world that can be studied. Of course, there are some poetic and allegorical statements mixed therein, but many contain scientific facts too. There are actually many various kinds of facts therein, some that even archeology today is still proving.
Here is one passage about the sun and universe:
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork... There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. (NASA instruments have recorded pulsating electromagnetic waves from space) Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race (The sun orbits around the center of the Milky Way Galaxy). His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof. (Even the official time in the US, and its synchronization, is periodically checked by astronomical orbital alignments, as are calendars) [Psalms 19:1-6]
As a catholic we would have no problem if you would like to bring a science to our church all true science belongs to God He is the master and creator of it all.However do be disruptive with it or any other book even the bible . In other words don't be disrespectful while we are reading the bible and praying to God. God always comes first!
